The 2020 NFL draft will be held in Las Vegas, which will coincide with the Raiders’ first season as the Las Vegas Raiders.

Until 2014, the draft was usually held in New York, including a stretch from 2006 to ’14 at Radio City Music Hall.
Since then, the league has let other NFL cities bid on hosting the event. It went to Chicago in 2015 and ’16, Philadelphia in ’17 and Dallas in ’18. The 2019 draft will be in Nashville, Tenn.
Las Vegas does not yet host an NFL team, but the Raiders will begin playing there in 2020.
