According to the Dallas Morning News' David Moore, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed the franchise submitted a proposal that would allow the league to use AT&T Stadium and The Star—home to the team's headquarters—for the festivities.
"They know how we can configure for 'X' amount of people," Jones said, per Moore. "Then they'll come back to us with what they want which night. We don't know exactly what they'll want to do. We're waiting to hear on that."
On April 5, ESPN.com's Field Yates reported Dallas had "emerged as a favorite" to host the 2018 selection extravaganza.
"Fourteen cities wouldn't agree with that," he said, according to NESN.com's Nicholas Goss. "I think everybody really loves the draft and I think they see the opportunity here. There’s a lot of competition for this, and Philadelphia is raising the bar."
Yates also cited Philadelphia as a potential repeat candidate to host, with Kansas City and Green Bay "considered long shots" to win the bid.
