The NFL Draft made how much money for the city of Philadephia?

Imagine the NFL Draft at Jerry’s World? It could happen

Why do teams want to host the NFL Draft? It is simple the NFL makes your city money. A reported posted by the NFL says 2017 NFL Draft generated $95 million for the Philadelphia economy.

“According to the NFL Draft Event Impact Report, commissioned by the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) and conducted by Temple University’s Sport Industry Research Center (SIRC), direct spending during the 3-day event in April was $56.1 million, resulting in an estimated $94.9 million in economic impact for Philadelphia,” the league announced in a press release on Thursday.

There are cities right now that could use that money more than anything. While it would be nice to see a Draft in a city like Chicago or Detroit, What about cities like Flint, Michigan? I am pretty sure they could use some extra money.
