The league announced on Wednesday that the 2018 draft is going the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Dallas - or technically Arlington, Texas - will be the third city to host the draft in three years, following Chicago and Philly.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can check another major event off of the AT&T Stadium bucket list: The NFL Draft.

The NFL Draft returns to primetime with Round 1 on Thursday, April 26.

In 2005, The Tragically Hip was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and four years ago was featured on a Canadian stamp. We would like to thank all the kind folks at KGH and Sunnybrook, Gord's bandmates, management team, friends and fans.

According to a report commissioned by the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau and conducted by Temple University's Sport Industry Research Center, direct spending during the three-day event in April was $56.1 million.

The draft was held in NY from 1965-2014, until the National Football League started to move it again to different cities.

The 2017 NFL Draft was held on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum, and the turnout was highly praised by fans and NFL personnel.

Philadelphia was also in the running for the 2018 draft, while Kansas City and Green Bay were considered long shots. The Cowboys had earlier pushed for the draft to be held at both AT&T Stadium and The Star - the team's new training facility in Frisco.

"When we chose to pursue the draft, we did so with the goal of an economic win for our city and region", says Julie Coker Graham, PHLCVB President and CEO. However, for the 50 years before that, New York City was the traditional location.

"Wildest, most raucous atmosphere in draft history".

The patent also discusses how a scoring engine can be used to rank a player's skill, thus leading to potential recommendations. In the meantime, the rest of the patent is well worth reading in full, and we've taken the liberty of embedding it below.

"Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the Draft to another level, and this new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event's evolution and grow it even further", said Goodell.
