New, comments

Could the city of Denver host an NFL Draft?

NFL: 2017 NFL Draft Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

According to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis, the Broncos and the city of Denver were in New York on Wednesday to propose hosting an NFL Draft sometime down the road.

Per Klis, Denver Broncos’ chief executive officer and president Joe Ellis and director of partnership marketing Sandy Young were among the people there to help pitch their proposal.

“Along with Visit Denver, we've expressed our interest in hosting a future NFL Draft for several years,'' said Patrick Smyth,the Broncos' executive vice president of public and community relations. "We had a productive visit with the league office on Wednesday to discuss the opportunity and look forward to further dialogue.''

If the NFL accepts the city of Denver and the Broncos proposal, their best chances to host an NFL Draft would come in 2019 or in 2020.
