NFL Will Likely Have To Change Dates For Next Year's Draft
Published May 20, 2013
ESPN’s Adam Schefter this afternoon cited sources as saying that the NFL and NFLPA are "on the verge of pushing back the draft to May and moving up the start of the league year to before" the scouting combine. Sources added that the union is "close to signing off on allowing the NFL to move the draft to May from April for at least the next three years." The league "originally proposed a league year that would have started later in the calendar year and the NFLPA rejected that idea" (ESPN.com, 5/20).
