NFL announces 26 players that will attend 2015 NFL Draft

New, comments

The NFL released the names of 26 players that will be on hand in Chicago for the 2015 NFL Draft. We take a look at the list, with pictures of past 49ers in attendance at their respective drafts.

The 2015 NFL Draft kicks off two weeks from today, and there will be 26 players in attendance. The NFL released a list of the players who accepted invitations to the event. Some big names will not be attending, including potentially the top two picks. Quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota will spend the day with their family, as will wide receiver Amari Cooper.

I decided to put together a gallery up above of 49ers draft picks at Radio City Music Hall. The earliest I could find is Alex Smith. I thought Patrick Willis was there back in 2007, but apparently I was wrong. We've got five pictures over the last ten years, including Eric Reid, Aldon Smith, Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis and Alex Smith.

The 49ers pick No. 15 this year, and there is a decent chance their pick will be on hand to accept a No. 1 49ers jersey from Roger Goodell. The 49ers could move around in the first, but there are plenty of potential options in the list below. It is worth noting things will look a little different this year as prospects cross the stage at the draft.
