NFL Says Record 25 Players Will Attend Draft

New, comments

The NFL has announced that 25 players will attend the draft later this week at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. That breaks the previous record of 17 draft prospects in attendance, set during the celebration of the 75-year anniversary of the draft.

Here is the list.

-- Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
-- Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
-- Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa
-- Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky
-- Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama
-- Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
-- Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
-- A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
-- Mark Herzlich, LB, Boston College
-- Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
-- Cameron Jordan, DE, Cal
-- Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
-- Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
-- Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
-- Von Miller, LB, Texas A&M
-- Rahim Moore, S, UCLA
-- Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
-- Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
-- Mike Pouncey, G/C, Florida
-- Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri
-- Tyron Smith, OT, USC
-- Phil Taylor, DT, Baylor
-- Danny Watkins, G, Baylor
-- J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
-- Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech

The most interesting thing about this list? There are several guys on it who have no shot at going in the first round. In the case of Herzlich, maybe even one player who might last until the third day.
