Murphy Would Like to Have the Draft in Green Bay

Since 2006, the NFL Draft has always been held in New York.

However, for 2015 that might not be the case, something that could end up bringing the event to Green Bay.

In response to that possibility, Packers President Mark Murphy seemed to like the idea, telling the team's official site it'd be great for the local community.

"I would like to see the draft held in Green Bay," Murphy said. "It would be great for the local community if the draft were held in Green Bay, and we’ve contacted the League regarding the specifications required for hosting the draft."

Currently, the Pack aren't the only team trying to land it, although they do seem to have a pretty good shot, seeing as they are the ones pursuing the most aggressively.

I don't see how that would make it a bigger event for the NFL by moving it to the smallest NFL city. If a move can't make the NFL more money, then it's not going to happen.
