NFL Draft will be in Philadelphia in 2017: report


CHICAGO – It appears there will not be a third-straight NFL Draft in the Windy City.

The move is not a major surprise considering the NFL’s desire to move the draft to a few different series after leaving New York in 2014. Chicago was the first city to get a shot at hosting the draft outside of the Big Apple in 2015 and 2016. The Auditorium Theatre was the site of the selections for both years with Draft Town being staged in Grant Park.
