Denver was one of several cities in the running to host the draft, and it lost out to Nashville.

Broncos President Joe Ellis congratulated Nashville in a prepared statement, but also said he’s disappointed because the Broncos worked hard on their proposal. His complete statement lies below:

It’s disappointing for us, but I do want to congratulate the city of Nashville. Even though we came up short, we’re proud of our bid and the hard work that went into our proposal. It showcased the attractiveness of our city along with the beauty of Red Rocks and the great football fans of this region.

We believe there’s no better place for the NFL Draft than Denver. Alongside VISIT DENVER and the Denver Sports Commission, we’ll take a close look at the feedback we’ve received and do everything we can to make it happen soon.

  1. I guarantee you Colorado lost out because of legalized pot and in Tennessee it is still illegal. If anyone tells you anything different, they’re lying. Ask the Commish.
