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.

From 1929 until the NFL/AFL merger in 1970, only thirty Latinos played in the National Football League. Many Latinos were under the radar for many years. Now is the perfect time to look back at those Latino players who made NFL history.
