The NFL announced the 25 players that were invited to attend the draft on April 28th in Chicago yesterday. It’s a no-brainer that Laremy Tunsil, Jalen Ramsey, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz would be there since they are all likely to go in the top five selections.
Ohio State led all teams with five players invited, Eli Apple, Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott, Darron Lee and Taylor Decker. National Champion Alabama had three, Reggie Ragland, A’Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed as did Ole Miss, Tunsil, Laquon Treadwell and Robert Nkemdiche. Clemson had two, Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd..
Other players that will attend are: Ronnie Stanley, Myles Jack, Vernon Hargreaves, Vernon Butler, Corey Coleman, Josh Doctson, Kevin Dodd, Jack Conklin, Chris Jones, and Keanu Neal.
Memphis QB Paxton Lynch was invited but decided to stay at home and share the moment with his friends and family according to his agent.

All of the 25 players invited are projected to go in the first round although Keanu Neal and Chris Jones are guys who could slip into the second round if things don’t shake out right for them.
