Details get refined throughout the offseason as information becomes available. Many dates are speculative based on last year's camp schedule, etc.

Could be, but if your source was nflschedule2015.org, it looks pretty suspicious. The draft is in Chicago, not in New York City, like the site claims... I'd wait a while for the official announcement.
