Jerry Lai / USA TODAY Sports

Dallas has emerged as a likely destination to host the 2018 NFL Draft, ESPN's Field Yates reports, citing league sources.

The draft has never been hosted by Dallas. Beginning with the 2015 draft, the NFL took its marquee spring event on the road to Chicago. The previous fifty drafts had been held in New York City.

The 2016 draft was also held in Chicago, and this year's version of the event will be held in Philadelphia.

The Cowboys have new headquarters on a 91-acre campus in Frisco, Texas, including the 12,000-seat Ford Center at The Star. This is reportedly where the draft would take place.
