PHILADELPHIA (AP) Yo, Roger, they did it.

When the NFL chose Philadelphia to host the 2017 draft, it quickly became clear one of the world's most famous movie locations would be the perfect site to hold the three-day extravaganza.

"We had talked about a couple different venues for the NFL and they wanted the Rocky steps and they wanted the Art Museum," Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney told The Associated Press. "So that's what we gave them. It will be a terrific event."
