In a sad announcement, Cleveland has lost its bid on having the NFL draft next year.

The draft ended up going to Nashville, which was a hard competitor from the beginning.

“When we entered the 2019/2020 NFL Draft process, we knew all of the cities would submit competitive bids. The Titans and Nashville will represent the NFL well next year, and we are excited to continue our discussions with the league on Northeast Ohio being an exceptional site for the 2020 NFL Draft, along with the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission and Pro Football Hall of Fame,” a Browns spokesperson said.

So while both Cleveland and Canton were passed on, in the last two years, there still is a very good chance the NFL Draft will be making its way to the north coast in 2020.
