The Sports Xchange

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — The 2016 NFL Draft will be held April 28-30 in Chicago, sources told the Sports Xchange.

Chicago hosted the 2015 draft in April.

The precise location isn’t known, but the NFL deemed the 2015 draft, a three-day affair that kicked off at Auditorium Theater and wrapped up at Grant Park, a smashing success.

The NFL moved the draft from New York City to drive greater interest and introduced new wrinkles, including Draft Town, team-focused fan hangouts within Grant Park, and on-location pick announcements made by fans at team headquarters.
