Will Los Angeles Have an NFL Team Ever Again?

In 1995, Los Angeles had two professional football teams: the Rams and the Raiders. That same year, due to failed stadium talks, both teams relocated from the Los Angeles area. The Los Angeles Raiders moved back to the San Francisco Bay Area, becoming the Oakland Raiders once again. The Los Angeles Rams moved to the Midwest and became the St. Louis Rams. 1995 was a terrible year for football fans living in Los Angeles. To this day,more than 17 years later, America’s second largest sports market is still without an NFL franchise.

It has a total of 8 professional sports teams, which include the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Galaxy, and Chivas U.S.A. The L.A. area also has two big college football teams; UCLA and USC.

For months these five individuals were talked about as being the potential top 5 NFL draft picks of the 2012 draft, and in the end they were. Every year the NFL draft is a time of happiness, frustration, and sadness, because some players are drafted early, and some are drafted in later rounds by teams. The 2012 NFL Draft was a draft in which the new generation of college players are now bigger, stronger, and faster.
