Full list of 25 prospects to attend 2016 NFL Draft in Chicago

New, comments

The 2016 NFL Draft starts two weeks from Thursday, and we now know which players will be in attendance. The NFL announced 25 players will be on hand. Most will be selected in the first round, but odds are good that at least a couple will have to wait until Friday to hear their names called.

The list does not tell us a ton, but does give us a chance to speculate on some players. Keanu Neal might be the most intriguing name to appear on this list. He has been viewed as a day two prospect for much of the pre-draft process, but this might indicate a team is thinking about taking him earlier. I don't exactly how the NFL determines which players to invite, but I would think teams provide at least a little bit of feedback.

DeForest Buckner is not listed. My guess is he turned down an invite. Some players prefer to spend the day with their family at home. Joe Thomas apparently went fishing on draft day.
