The NFL Draft is moving two weeks later than usual, at least for 2014. The league announced Tuesday that the 2014 NFL Draft will be held at Radio City Music Hall on May 8 to 10. The league also was considering moving the draft to May 15 to 17 because of scheduling issues at Radio City Music Hall, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed last week at the NFL Spring Meeting. "The decision was made after discussions with club personnel and key NFL business partners. No decision has been made regarding the dates of the NFL Draft in 2015 and beyond. A variety of alternatives are being explored, teams were told, including holding the draft at Radio City or at other locations, either in the New York area or in other cities," the league said in a statement Tuesday. There have been discussions about dramatically changing the offseason calendar including the dates of the NFL Scouting Combine and the start of free agency, but those possible changes won't happen until 2015 at the earliest. The NFL announced the 2014 dates of those events, which are at the same time as previous years. The combine in Indianapolis will be held from February 18 to 25. The new league year and free agency will begin on March 11, 2014. The NFL Annual Meeting will be held in Orlando, Florida, on March 23 to 26.
