The City Released NFL Draft Details

Other than the fact that it looks like an enormous diorama, with theater seating flanking both side of the Art Museum steps, it’s not a terrible layout. But the renderings forgot to add all the dudes crushing beers on Eakins Oval. Here are a couple more renderings:

According to the Draft page on Discover PHL, the official name of the accompanying draft event will be the “NFL DRAFT EXPERIENCE PRESENTED BY DANNON OIKOS TRIPLE ZERO,” and it’ll be a free, all-ages festival of football:


  • Thursday, April 27: Round 1 festivities, which will include incoming prospects walking the red carpet before entering an outdoor theater. More fans than ever before will be able to view the Commissioner announcing selections and greeting draftees during the first round with the NFL building the first ever outdoor Draft Theatre.
  • Friday, April 28: Thirty-two former players who are members of the NFL Legends Community, one representing each team, will be on hand for Night 2 to announce selections. Night 2 Draft (Rounds 2-3) announcements will also feature winners of the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award presented by Nationwide.
  • Saturday, April 29: The Draft will conclude with Rounds 4-7 and the final day of the free fan festival.

  1. I just know that drunken white trash Eagles fans are going to do something so embarrassingly stupid, that national media members will pounce on it like a dope fiend to heroin.

    1. I hope Josh Innes come back for this event. Not because I like Josh, but his girlfriend usually travels with him and when they lived here I would blast her 2x a week.

    1. why don’t you ask him? I’m sure that 97.5 will have a remote at the draft all week, so you can get him as a guest. Sit him right next to the draft expert….Baldy!

  2. Can’t wait to nail a DelCo slut in the port a potties outside the Art Museum

    Let’s just say the Monet and Picassos won’t be the only art in the area. I’m gonna be doing a lot of painting on her face. Call it my masterpiece

  3. I may be in the minority here, but this sounds awful. The NFL is a joke. They just need to make everything a spectacle. Its a draft. What is exciting about attending it? What is the draw that would make me not want to just watch it on TV? I guess for the middle-aged jersey wearers this is like Christmas. Sorry not for me. I will be staying far away from the city that weekend.

  4. Where else can the white trash walk around in counterfeit 2002 bought Brian Dawkins jerseys?

  5. Friend of mine met Connor Barwin at Barcade last summer. Said Barwin took 2 chicks into the bathroom and blasted a load over the one girls face and she came out of the bathroom with cum on her hair and everyone laughed

  6. All I know is I’m getting fucked up and eating some pussy that night . Already took off from work
