NFL Draft Broke Viewership, Attendance Records
April 29, 2019 6:56AM PDT
Looks like the NFL Draft is more popular than ever – last week’s event was the highest-rated and most-attended Draft in NFL history.
More than 47.5 million people tuned in to watch the Draft over three days on ABC, ESPN, and NFL Network – a five percent increase over 2018.
Meanwhile, more than 600,000 football fans – a few disgruntled bachelorette parties – crammed into downtown Nashville to attend the festivities in person.
The live attendance might be even bigger next year when the Draft will be held in Las Vegas. What did you think of this year’s Draft coverage?
