Since the 2021 draft, the league, under 2020 Resolution JC-2A passed in November 2020, rewards teams for developing minority candidates for head coach and/or general manager positions.
The resolution rewards teams whose minority candidates are hired away for one of those positions by awarding draft picks.
These draft picks are at the end of the third round, after standard compensatory picks; if multiple teams qualify, they are awarded by draft order in the first round.
These picks are in addition to, and have no impact on, the standard 32 compensatory picks.
Detroit beat out the likes of Green Bay and Washington D.C. to serve as the 2024 draft host, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
The draft has been a roving affair in recent years and one of the most successful tentpole events on the NFL calendar. The 2022 NFL Draft is slated for Las Vegas. In 2023, it will be in Kansas City.
The 2024 NFL Draft has been awarded to Detroit, the league announced Monday.
“The draft has become a prominent offseason event across the country, and we are excited to work with the Lions and their partners to bring the 2024 NFL Draft to the Motor City,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
“With the help of Visit Detroit, the Detroit Sports Commission, and the City of Detroit the Lions passionate fan base and all visitors will be treated to an incredible three-day experience.”
The news comes hours after the Detroit Lions were announced as the featured club of the HBO docuseries Hard Knocks during the 2022 training camp.
NFL 2024 dates
On April 14, the Detroit Sports Commission is hosting a free party to bring folks from far and wide to Campus Martius for food trucks, appearances by Detroit Lions legends and Roary, family-friendly activities, and music by Lions GameDay DJ Ray Ya Dig. NFL on CBS analyst Charles Davis will emcee.
According to the Detroit Sports Commission, they’ll reveal a “custom interactive display representing Detroit that will have a permanent home in the city where fans can gather to celebrate the historic announcement.”
Potentially to remind fans, especially if things get brutal mid-season, that this is a win to celebrate and there’s something to look forward to.
