The draft will be broadcast on NFL Network, ABC, ESPN and ESPN Deportes.
Where is the 2022 NFL Draft?
This year’s draft will be held in Las Vegas at the heart of the Strip, with Draft Experience and the Draft Theater located behind the High Roller and The LINQ, adjacent to Caesars Forum. Las Vegas was originally set to host the 2020 NFL Draft, but the COVID-19 pandemic led to the event being made virtual and, as a result, Las Vegas will get another chance at hosting with this year’s draft.
