Viva Las Vegas Baby! Gamblers and casinos would be so thrilled to have the draft in their city. Imagine the money that could be made? Johnny Manziel already made Vegas his second home, so why not start out his career there to? I‘m sure if it was an option, Manziel would have taken it with joy.
The incoming players would have the time of their lives going to this event. They could party all week long and gamble their new found wealth. Here’s the issue with that, coaches would absolutely explode if that happens. They don’t see this as a game.
Prediction: Once again the money to be made if this happens will be unreal for both the NFL and Las Vegas. While it is very tempting, it will never happen. At least not in most of my lifetime. The NFL doesn’t want to promote the idea of gambling. That is why there will most likely never be a team or a draft there.
