NFL Draft 2022: Why Is It In Las Vegas?

Our favorite USC Football players will hear their names called in the NFL Draft from Las Vegas, Nevada this year. That's where the draft will be located this time. That's the case because it was supposed to be there in 2020, but didn't get that chance due to the draft being pushed to happen remotely that year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The draft was originally supposed to take place in Las Vegas in 2020 for good reason. The red carpet presentation at the draft is going to take place over the Bellagio Fountains. You probably have no idea how this is possible, but it apparently is.

The way it's going to go down is that the players are going to hop on a ferry that takes them to a red carpet area over the fountains where they will participate in the media activities that take place over at the red carpet. Afterwards, they will be picked up on a ferry and head over to Las Vegas Boulevard.

USC Football's Drake London will likely be on that ferry, as it is of course for the expected high draft picks only.

Outside of London, there will likely not be any other USC Football players on the ferry (maybe Drake Jackson). Right after they get onto Las Vegas Boulevard, a vehicle will be waiting to pick them up and take them to the stage. The stage will be outside the Caesars Forum Convention Center.

The draft theater is set to be the biggest in NFL Draft history. It's going to be a big deal. Vegas is obviously one of the biggest attractions in the country, and to host one of the biggest athletic events in the country there makes for an extremely exciting time for all fans attending.

It will be incredible for fans watching from home as well, especially if Drake London gets taken in the top ten. We know London will show out no matter where he's taken, and no matter who takes him, but if NFL GM's are smart, they won't pass on him and regret it later like GM's are already regretting passing on Amon-Ra St. Brown.
