6:03 am
okay. still in the green westbound or eastbound. no real increase in that drive time yet. at the most, it's going to take you 23 minutes if you're headed eastbound from valley forge to route 1. this is cherry hill, new jersey, on route 70. not a lot of cars in the area right now. mass transit on or close to schedule for the most part, vai. >> thank you, jessie. at least 14 people are dead, including a doctor, after an air strike in the syrian city of aleppo. fighting in this area has increased in the latst few days. doctors without border condemned the attack, saying it deprives people of essential care and hospitals are not targets. of course, stay with nbc 10 news and the nbc 10 app as we continue to monitor the situation for updates. it's 6:03. 52 degrees outside. we have new information about the robbery of a temple student overnight.
6:04 am
police now tell us the student came home to his frat house, went in through an unlocked back door, found a man rummaging in the kitchen. the student says he saw the butt of a gun sticking out of the man's pocket as the man asked him for pocket. the student said he didn't have any money. the man took his book bag and left. the student was not hurt. police are looking for the intruder. it is draft day in the nfl. the eagles are hoping their recent off-season moves will pay off. the birds traded up for the number-two draft pick overall. now they're looking to land a player that could be around for years. nbc 10's matt delucia is live for us at lincoln financial field. matt, eagles fans are anxiously awaiting the top pick. could be a quarterback. >> reporter: that is right, vai. anxious to say the least. yes, people are hoping that this will be someone who stays around for quite a while. a lot of the analyst, fans, and perhaps the eagles front office are a bit nervous about this, just hoping everything works out, and thinking about this as a gamble.
6:05 am
will all the moves that happened in the off-season pay off? the team has made it clear that they plan on selecting their next franchise quarterback. they will have the number two pick overall later tonight. it's widely anticipated that the eagles are looking at carson wentz, quarterback out of north dakota state. the first pick goes to the rams. they haven't really been looking at wentz. it's likely he'll be the new guy that everyone here will be counting on. sam bradford is still under contract, so we'll see when exactly wentz will take the field. with all the moving and shaking that has happened in recent weeks, fans just want something positive to look forward to. >> i think you got to get up in the draft if you can. you can't always trade up. it's not something easy to do. so if you can move up and you like the guy, you got to do it. >> it's always a risk moving up, but you've got to make moves to get trophies. >> reporter: got to make the moves. by the way, the last time the eagles had the number two pick in the draft was 1999. their selection, donovan mcnabb.
6:06 am
you'll remember he was met with a lot of booing. we'll see if the pick tonight can work out for the birds. live at the linc this morning, i'm matt delucia, nbc 10 news. >> matt, thank you. tracy, you want to join me on the wentz wagon? that's going to be our guy. >> okay. >> don't miss our draft special tonight at 7:00. john clark is at the draft in chicago. we'll give you exclusive access you can get only from nbc 10 because we are your official eagles station. it is 6:06. we have new information about the suspected sabotage at verizon facilities. the company is now reporting dozens of cases that have cut off service to thousands of customers, including some in pennsylvania, new jersey, and delaware. the company reports 57 incidents over the past two weeks, mostly involving severed cables. 17 cases happened in new jersey, ten in pennsylvania, and in delaware three happened in just
