According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Philadelphia "has emerged as (the) leading candidate" to host the 2017 NFL draft.

"They're one of the cities bidding," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in Chicago, via CSN's John Clark. "Were interested in Philadelphia, among other cities."

Chicago will host the draft for the second straight year this week, after New York City's Radio City Music Hall was the longtime host.
