The Tennessee Titans’ uniform unveiling event in early April served two purposes: to hype a new era for Titans football and to show the NFL that Nashville deserves to host the 2019 or 2020 draft.
It appears the event was successful, because Nashville is a leading candidate to host the 2019 NFL Draft, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Nashville has emerged as the leading contender to host the 2019 NFL Draft, per league sources. A decision is expected to be announced during the league’s spring meeting May 22-23 in Atlanta.

This shouldn’t really be a surprise.
Nashville has displayed over the last year that it can provide an incredible atmosphere for sporting events in the spring.
Whether it’s the Preds or the Titans, Nashville shows up in a big way when there’s a party.
And make no doubt about it, if the draft is held in Nashville, it will be a party.
Give the people what they want
It’s pretty clear from social media that everyone from fans to media analysts thinks the NFL Draft should be held in Nashville in the near future.
The host city for the 2019 NFL Draft will be decided on May 21st. #GMFB
“Good food. Good culture. It’s low key one of the best cities in the country.” + @PSchrags would chug a catfish beer.

Hey @nfl if you still have some questions about giving Nashville the 2019 draft, ask yourself this: when is the last time an event was held here and people were like “man, I wish we had chosen somewhere else for this”?

If the draft ends up being in Nashville, like it looks like it’s gonna be, I’m gonna be so fired up. #TitanUp

I’ve been hearing info leading to this as well. NFL wants draft to take on personality of the city hosting it. Nashville would be a great fit in that realm. Perfect follow-up from big-show Dallas to big-party Nashville. https://t.co/MKAOd2aSzf

Hopefully the NFL doesn’t screw this up, because it’s very apparent that Nashville hosting the draft would be a huge hit.
