2017 NFL Draft to Be Hosted in Philadelphia
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the 2017 NFL Draft will be moved from Chicago to Philadelphia.
The draft will be held on Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which is east of downtown Philadelphia. Benjamin Franklin Parkway has held many different concerts and events such as Wawa Welcome America! on the fourth of July.
The NFL will build a structure on the Boulevard to account for the possibility of bad weather during the event.
For the past two years Chicago has hosted the event and before that New York was the home of the draft for 51 years until a poor experience in 2014 made the NFL move to Chicago.
