Just as predicted, the 76ers selected Markelle Fultz with the first overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft on Thursday night. Most Sixers fans knew this was going to happen once the 76ers got 1st overall pick. Fultz will join key players such as Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Dario Saric.
To celebrate the selection of Markelle Fultz, many Philadelphia Eagles players welcomed him on twitter. Such as Carson Wentz, Sidney Jones IV, Lane Johnson, Zach Ertz, and Rodney McLeod.

Nice to see some Eagles players welcoming new Sixers selects. Maybe Eagles and the Sixers will be something this year. Never know though.
