If you believe Adam Schefter of ESPN, the word is the NFL may not have the annual NFL Draft until MAY coming up in the near future.
NFL and NFLPA are on verge of pushing back draft to May and moving up start of league year to before combine, per sources.

As you see from the tweet, Schefter says the draft will be in May, and then the start of the league year would be pushed back as well.
It will be interesting how teams do their pre-draft visits if the tweet comes through, and how much time they try and spend with a specific player now that there’s more time to do so.
