NFL draft to May in 2014; future dates undecided

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL draft is moving to May next year.
The league officially announced Tuesday that the 2014 edition will be held May 8-10 at Radio City Music Hall because of a scheduling conflict in April at the venue. The NFL has yet to decide on dates for drafts in 2015 and beyond.
Radio City is hosting an Easter show next year that conflicts with the NFL’s typical window for the draft.
The last time the entire draft took place in May was 1984.
The NFL says there will be no significant changes in the dates for other offseason events next year.
