New York has fallen off of the NFL's draft board.

Commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday that the 2015 NFL Draft will be held in either Los Angeles or Chicago, according to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times.

It will mark the first time since 1965 that the draft will not be in New York. Goodell said that Radio City Music Hall, which had hosted the draft, couldn't offer any available dates in April or May, according to the Times.

Goodell said that he thinks a decision will come in "late summer, but we're not going to be bound by that," according to the Times.

Goodell also said that the league is considering expanding the draft from three days to four, according to the report.
