The NFL announced this afternoon that next year's draft will be held from May 8-10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City -- two weeks later than usual -- because of a scheduling conflict at the venue.
While it's been speculated that the league would like to make May the permanent month for the draft, that's not the case just yet.
"No decision has been made regarding the dates of the NFL Draft in 2015 and beyond," reads a portion of a letter sent from the league's communications office. "A variety of alternatives are being explored, teams were told, including holding the draft at Radio City or at other locations, either in the New York area or in other cities."
No other changes to the league's calendar were announced for 2014, highlights of which include:
• Regional combines will take place from Jan. 24-Feb. 16 at several different locations.
• The NFL Scouting Combine from Feb. 18-25 in Indianapolis.
• The 2014 league year, and start of free agency, on March 11.
