The NFL Draft in Chicago?

If Rahm Emanuel gets his way, it could be a reality.

The NFL's contract with Radio City Music Hall in New York — the longtime home of the NFL Draft — is up after this month's draft. And, per a tweet from NFL Network's Rich Eisen, it could be on the move, with Emanuel one of the mayors pushing "aggressively" for the draft to come to his city.

The news came to Eisen through NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, according to the tweet, and Emanuel is up against a fellow big-city mayor, Los Angeles' Eric Garcetti, when it comes to potentially moving the draft outside the Big Apple.

So what do you think? Would you like to see the draft come to Chicago?
