Draft-night surprises are expected, as usual — it’s just a question of what they’ll be. The 2019 NFL Draft is bound to shake up big-name franchises like the New York Giants (two picks in first round) and Oakland Raiders (three first-round picks).
As the draft creeps closer and teams finalize their big boards for one of the biggest weekends of the offseason, here’s everything you need to know about this year’s event — and how to tune in.
Where is the 2019 NFL Draft, This year’s draft will be held in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, a first-time location for the event. The draft’s main stage will be assembled at First and Broadway and also play host to free draft-week concerts by Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley, among others. Selection Square, where team tables are set up and club representatives make their picks, will be held at the city’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, home of the Nashville Symphony.
Nashville playing host to the 2019 draft marks the fifth location of the draft in six years. After 50 straight years in New York City, where it was most recently held at Radio City Music Hall, the draft has stopped in Chicago (Auditorium Theatre), Philadelphia (Museum of Art) and Arlington (AT&T Stadium) since 2015.
