Kinebrew gives an acceptance speech telling people to visit DraftinPHL.com for the latest updates and then thanks 'his mom.' A surprise cameo appearance by a familiar face to Action News, Philly Police Director of Strategic Communications Denise James!

The Philly police are not alone in taking part in the NFL Draft humor.

The Philadelphia Zoo has been tweeting NFL teams including the Indianapolis Colts.

The Zoo tweeted a picture of a miniature horse to the Colts saying, "We've got your pick! What he lacks in size he makes up for in heart!"


The Colts responded, "Definitely looks like a "horseshoe guy" as coach would say... We'll keep our eyes on him as we get closer to our pick tonight."



There was a welcoming message to the Detroit Lions full of pride.

And the Zoo and its zebras wondered if there was a draft for the officials.



And this is just Day 1...
