With the 2017 NFL draft happening in Philadelphia this weekend, thousands of fans will be cramming the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in order to participate in all of the festivities offered for fans of all ages. You can test your physical capabilities in many challenges offered or you can learn the history of legendary players of the game.
