NFL Draft Moving

The National Football League is ready to move the NFL Draft to mid-May.  The move would further stretch the NFL season to a 12 month affair.  May is currently a month where not much is going on with the league and this move would stretch activity to 12 months of the year and keep the league in the spotlight.
