    Nashville is one of multiple cities with interest in hosting the NFL draft.

    And the city’s interest didn’t just bubble up.

    Nashville’s Convention and Visitors Corporation president Butch Spyridon told the Nashville Tennessean that the city and Titans have kept the NFL appraised of their willingness to hold the draft for several years.

    “We expressed very serious interest that if they ever wanted to talk about (moving the draft), we wanted to be at the table. And even if they hadn’t thought about it, we wanted to plant the seed,” Spyridon said, according to the Tennessean.

    With the three biggest media markets — New York, Los Angeles and Chicago — all in the mix as locations for the 2015 NFL Draft, Nashville’s selection to host the upcoming draft would be seen as a major upset. However, should the league start to move the draft from city-to-city on annual basis, a la the NBA, Nashville would seem well-positioned to at least seriously be in the discussion in future years, given the city’s connection to the Titans and its stated wish to hold the event.

    I'd love for it to be here, imagine watching the draft in the Grand Ole Opry. I wonder if it would stay free though.

    Somebody swing by and pick me up.

    You can head east up through ATL and grab Scarehoe before looping back to Chattanooga and up back to Nashville.
