Detroit Has Been Selected To Host The 2024 NFL Draft
Being a Detroit Lions fan is tough. Even though they break my heart every year, I still keep coming back hoping for something different.
The Detroit Lions and the city of Detroit haven't had much to look forward to or celebrate over recent years. Unless you were cheering on Matthew Stafford as a "Detroit Ram" in Super Bowl 56
While the City of Detroit will probably never see a Super Bowl championship in my lifetime, there is some great news that came out today.
Then a few hours later, the announcement was made that the City of Detroit was selected by the NFL to host the 2024 NFL draft.
Former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders narrated the video and made an appearance. This is the first time the City of Detroit has hosted the NFL draft. Detroit beat out several NFL cities for the draft including Washington, D.C., and Green Bay.
