NFL draft to May in 2014; future dates undecided

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

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.
    
Commissioner Roger Goodell had said last week he expected the event to permanently move to May from late April, when Radio City is hosting an Easter show. The league is contemplating other venues for future drafts, including the possibility of holding it somewhere other than New York City.
    
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.
