Start making your plans for the biggest Raiders-themed party you could ever imagine.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the 2002 NFL draft dates are officially set. The three-day event will run Thursday, April 28 through Saturday, April 30 of next year. Of course, it will be in Las Vegas and the Raiders are the host team.
This is going to be wild! It has also been a long time coming as the 2020 draft was supposed to be in Las Vegas, but the live event was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic so it became an all-virtual event. It was announced during the 2020 draft that the 2022 event would be held in Las Vegas, as 2021 had already been set in Cleveland, Ohio.
Expect a typical Las Vegas-style spectacular event next year. Hope to see you all there.
