The NFL released locations for the draft in 2020, 2021 and 2023 this week, but 2022 remains open.

Could Boston be a possibility?

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, yes.

“My understanding is what the NFL wants to do is go a little city, big city, and kind of alternate,” Rapoport said Wednesday. “Obviously Nashville (in 2019) and then Vegas next, they’re basically saving a spot for a bigger city. And some of the ones that have been mentioned to me: Boston, potentially, with the Patriots hosting, that would be one. Washington, D.C., with the Redskins. Maybe Houston with the Texans, although usually these are reserved for teams that do not host Super Bowls. But figure that (2022) spot is saved for one of the bigger NFL cities.”

It's unclear exactly where in Boston it would be, but City Hall Plaza comes to mind.
