The 2018 NFL Draft is heading to the Lone Star State.

The 83rd NFL Draft will take place on April 26-28 of 2018 at the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium, making it the first time in history that will be held at an NFL stadium. 

The NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made the announcement on Oct. 18 at the league's annual Fall meeting. 

“Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the Draft to another level, and this new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event’s evolution and grow it even further,” said Goodell. “We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, the cities of Arlington, Dallas, and Frisco, and the Dallas Sports Commission for their leadership in turning this vision into reality.”  

The NFL Draft has grown into one of the biggest sporting events of the year.

A record-breaking 250,000 fans attended the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia.
