Update: The NFL officially announced Tuesday that the 2014 NFL Draft will be held May 8-10.
While we pride ourselves here at Buffalo Bills Draft on bringing you quality draft coverage year-round, the NFL’s “draft season” is typically considered to be the time between the Super Bowl and draft weekend. The draft season is expected to be a little longer starting next year, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Schefter tweeted Monday that the 2014 NFL Draft is expected to be held May 15-17. This is three weeks later than the fourth weekend of April, which has been the draft’s typical time slot since the draft converted to its current three-day format in 2010.
NFL Network’s Albert Breer tweeted Tuesday that the league is also discussing holding the draft just two weeks later (May 8-10), but nonetheless, it appears the league is set toward moving its late-April staple to early May. According to another Schefter tweet, tentative dates for future drafts are May 7-9, 2015 (second weekend of May) and May 5-7 (first weekend of May).
