The 2022 NFL Draft Experience In Las Vegas

The Draft Experience is the NFL’s interactive football theme park that will be in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. It is being built right next to Caesars Forum, which is located behind the High Roller at the Linq.

It is open from April 28-30, and you can find the exact hours by clicking here.

Fans can participate in immersive exhibits, activation events, and purchase exclusive merchandise on site. There will also be nightly concerts on the stage, but the performers have not yet been announced. You can also check out the NFL Draft stage on a first-come, first-serve basis. Access to the stage is standing-room-only.

One of the best parts about the NFL Draft Experience is that it is completely free! All you have to do is register for NFL OnePass. The app allows you to play games at the Draft Experience and enter for a chance to win exclusive prizes, like a trip for two to Super Bowl LVII.

If you aren’t staying on the Strip and want to avoid heavy traffic while getting to the Draft Experience, think about taking the Las Vegas Monorail. There is a station that drops off at Harrah’s/Linq and a day pass is just $13.

You can hop on the monorail away from all the action, either at MGM, Westgate, or Sahara Las Vegas and get to the Draft Experience within minutes.

Betting On The 2022 NFL Draft

In less than three weeks, top prospects will be waiting to hear their names called in Las Vegas to see which NFL team they are going to. You can already bet on several different draft markets with Caesars Sportsbook, including the first player drafted at different positions.

For the first time in a handful of years, a quarterback may not go first overall. However, a few will still likely hear their names called in the first round.

Kenny Pickett has 44% of the total tickets at Caesars Sportsbook to be the first quarterback selected, but Malik Willis, who is now the -170 favorite at Caesars to be the first QB off the board, has 67% of total dollars wagered.

The biggest favorite of the five markets at Caesars Sportsbook (quarterback, wide receiver, running back, offensive lineman, and cornerback) is Ahmad Gardner to be the first cornerback drafted. His odds are currently -400.
