The 2020 NFL Draft will be the 85th annual meeting of National Football League (NFL) franchises to select newly eligible players. The draft is expected to be held from April 23 to 25, based on prior draft dates. It will be held in Paradise, Nevada.

Host City Bid Process[edit]

The host city for this draft would have been chosen from among finalists Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Nashville, and Cleveland/Canton in May 2018 during the NFL Spring League Meeting,[1] when Nashville was chosen to host the 2019 draft. However, the host city for 2020 was deferred. After Denver withdrew, citing scheduling conflicts,[2] Las Vegas was chosen as the host on December 12, 2018.[3] The 2020 Draft being hosted in Las Vegas coincides with the scheduled arrival of the former Oakland Raiders in the city during the same offseason.
