Roger Goodell alerted NFL teams in a memo Thursday night that the dates of this year’s draft would remain April 23-25. The eight owners who comprise the NFL Management Council Executive Committee unanimously endorsed moving forward as planned. There has been chatter from some general managers about wanting it pushed back, and Goodell threatened disciplinary action against any teams publicly criticizing the decision.
