Earlier today, the NFL released the list of players who will be attending the NFL Draft this year. Some of the big names attending are Geno Smith, Luke Joeckel, and EJ Manuel and two big names the are NOT attending the draft are Matt Barkley and, non-other-than, Notre Dame star, Manti Te’o. I’m a bit surprised that players like EJ Manuel, Eric Reid, and Eddie Lacy are attending the draft because they are not necessarily going in the first round, but regardless it will be a star studded night. This year there will be 4 players from Alabama and from Florida St. attending the draft, which is an impressive amount of players.
So without further adieu, here is the list of the players that will be attendin the NFL Draft.
