On Wednesday, his patience was rewarded as The Star in Frisco, Texas was officially chosen as the location of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Dallas has been selected as the host city for the 2018 NFL Draft. "We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, the cities of Arlington, Dallas, and Frisco, and the Dallas Sports Commission for their leadership in turning this vision into reality".

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

The draft, which spans three days and includes almost a week of events, will likely split time between the Cowboys' two state-of-the-art facilities.

With the megascreen at AT&T Stadium, hosting the NFL Draft should be no issue and fans will get a good look at the action regardless of where they are seated.

The league has adopted the idea of constantly moving the draft after decades of it being held in New York City. First time the draft will be held in a stadium. "No city has injected that much energy, electricity, excitement into the draft".

"Obviously Chicago set the bar for the new draft model and Philadelphia took it to another level in terms of the energy and the site and connection to the crowd".

The NFL Draft won't be coming back to Philadelphia next year. Representatives from 16 cities attended this year's event.

"Wildest, most raucous atmosphere in draft history". In total, the event generated more than $94 million in economic impact for the city, surpassing initial projections and supporting an estimated 30,000 local jobs.

"The Draft was a family-friendly event for Philadelphians and visitors across the country", Mayor Jim Kenney said.
