The NFL and the 2015 NFL Draft has completely taken over downtown Chicago’s Grant Park and it was such a spectacular event for the city.

The absolutely giant 900,000 square foot event stretched out over Grant Park and Congress Plaza for all three days of family fun at the nationally anticipated event.

Hundreds of thousands of people have attended the festivities which include multiple activities:DSC01803

All 32 teams set up their own tent which featured memorabilia and a wall for fans of each team to sign. You can find the Bears tent to the right. Selection Square was located across Michigan Avenue from the Auditorium Theature and was called the central operations of the draft. Also, Combine Corner featured interactive activities such as the video board 40 yard dash, vertical jump, and even ‘skydive’ like Walter Payton.

Last but not least, this was an absolute media frenzy for the city, ESPN and NFL Network had their own set up with the beautiful city pictured behind.
