Ball pits, cute kids and the Lombardi Trophy: Photos from day 2 of the NFL Draft Experience
Footballs were thrown, field goals scored and passes made — and none by professional football players.
At the NFL Draft Experience, part of the NFL Draft’s activities in Philadelphia, fans got to see how their skills compared to the players they so admire.
They could also jump in ball pits, admire the Lombardi trophy and dive headfirst into the end-zone. There were makeshift locker room displays to check out and an endless supply of prime selfie opportunities.
NFL Draft Experience: Did you make our fan cam?
Earlier on April 28, we gave our Facebook fans a tour of the experience. You can check it out in the video below. You can see photos of the day’s events in the photo gallery at the top of this post.
The first day of the NFL Draft brought in 100,000 people, a record for draft-related events. It also saw Verizon customers use 9.4TB of data (the equivalent of more than 1.8 million songs).
The NFL Draft and NFL Draft Experience continue on April 29. The fan event starts at 10 a.m. You can read more about it in the link below.
