Philly.com – Bob Brady says the 2017 NFL draft will be held in Philadelphia. The U.S. representative said in an interview Thursday that the draft, held in Chicago the last two years, would take place in Philadelphia in April. Although the city did not confirm that a deal had been made, Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, said that Mayor Kenney called him Thursday to tell him that the city had agreed to host the draft and to commit $5 million to pull off the three-day event.
