The NFL Draft is headed to The American Dream City.

The Cowboys will be the hosts of the 2018 NFL Draft, which will take place April 26-28 at AT-T Stadium in Arlington.

The league announced the move to Arlington on Wednesday. This will mark the third different venue for the NFL Draft in three years, including Chicago, which held the event in 2015 and 2016, and Philadelphia, the host city for last year's draft. Before moving it around to different NFL cities, the draft was held consistently in New York from 1965 to 2014.

This will be the first time an NFL Draft will be hosted at an NFL stadium. All three days of the NFL Draft will take place in Arlington, with other events happening throughout the DFW area.

"We're looking forward to showcasing the versatility of AT-T Stadium in Arlington," said Charlotte Anderson, the Cowboys' executive VP and chief brand officer. "The stadium was designed for more than just football. It was designed to be adaptable to host a wide variety of events because of its indoor/outdoor capabilities. People in Texas believe our state is the center of the football universe, and we know we will have a great crowd turnout-not only from within our state but from fans who come from all over the country."
