Carson Wentz and Jeremiah Trotter Will Make Appearances at the NFL Draft in Philly

The 2017 NFL draft is just over a week away from taking over Philadelphia.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and former Eagles linebacker Jeremiah Trotter will also make appearances at the draft. Wentz will make an appearance on Thursday, while Trotter will be there on Friday.

The Eagles hold the No. 14 overall pick and have a number of directions they can go with their selection (see story.)

The NFL draft can move slowly at times, but there will be plenty of attractions and games to keep Eagles fans occupied at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway until they're on the clock. Some of these games include running routes against NFL players or spinning the ball like Tom Brady by throwing Hail Mary's into a drop-in net.

Here's a full list of the games below:
