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.

Analysts widely believe that the Bank of England will respond to the inflation data by raising interest rates next month. Inflation stood at 2.9 percent in August and rose to 3 percent in September, its highest level since 2012.

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.

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.
