NFL owners voted to host the 2024 draft from Detroit at the league's annual meeting on Monday, picking the city over other bids from Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Washington, D.C.

Detroit Lions president Rod Wood has been pushing for the city to host the NFL Draft since 2017, and expressed hope that hosting the event may lead to bigger things for the city in the future.

"I think it’s unlikely, I will never say never, that we’ll have another chance for a Super Bowl, but the draft has become maybe the next biggest event that the league puts on," Wood said. "And so once the draft started to move around and was so successful in other markets, it became something that we really focused on and so happy that it’s finally happened and hopefully we’ll put on a good enough show that maybe they will consider us for a Super Bowl again."
