ESPN: Nashville leading contender to host 2019 NFL Draft

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

An ESPN reporter said Nashville is the leading contender to host the 2019 NFL Draft.

ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter tweeted on Thursday that Nashville has emerged as the leading contender, according to league sources.

 “This has been something we’ve been chasing literally since 2011,” said Butch Spyridon, President and CEO of Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp. “It’s kind of funny, going back to last year’s playoff game. I would send pictures of Game 6 to the NFL and say we’re just rehearsing.”

The NFL is expected to announce a decision during the league’s spring meetings, to be held May 22-23 in Atlanta.
