Where is the 2017 NFL Draft: Location, dates, first-round order, how to watch
Everything you need to know about the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia
With Super Bowl LI in the rearview mirror, the 2017 NFL Draft is not that far away. The Patriots are five weeks behind everyone else (except the Falcons), but all 32 teams are scrambling to try and make a Super Bowl run in 2017.
Few events have an impact on how teams approach roster building quite like the draft, and oftentimes it's rookies making huge plays on the biggest stages (Atlanta's defense was loaded with young talent like Deion Jones, while Tom Brady was protected by a rookie in Joe Thuney).
Winning in the draft sets teams up well for the immediate future and the long haul.
For the first time since 1960, the NFL Draft is coming back to Philadelphia. For the first time in a few years, it will be taking place in April.
While the draft was traditionally a late-April event, it shifted into May over the past few seasons. This year it moves back into April as part of an odder-than-usual NFL calendar (the 2017 NFL combine starts a little later in Indianapolis) and will be in the city of Brotherly Love.
Here's full details on how to watch, what the schedule is like and the full first-round draft order.

Who will be drafted No. 1 overall?
Don't sleep on someone like UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky, an Ohio native who grew up a Browns fan, climbing to the top spot if Cleveland believes he can be a franchise quarterback. Both Rob and Dane have Trubisky going No. 2 overall to the 49ers at the moment.
