Rapoport believes Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will pull out all the stops to make the draft in Dallas a memorable one:
The NFL draft was hosted in New York from 1965-2014. The NFL then decided to open up the event to various cities around the United States, with Chicago hosting in 2015 and 2016 and Philadelphia putting on the event this past April.
Philadelphia's event was particularly memorable, as NFL.com reported a record-setting 250,000 people attended the festivities. AT&T Stadium is certainly equipped to handle a large turnout, as Ralph Vacchiano of SNY noted:
Representatives from 14 cities attended Philly's event while considering their own 2018 bid, according to Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News. Twenty cities ultimately bid on the event, per Horn, including Philadelphia and Chicago.
