The 2017 NFL draft gets going in exactly two weeks, and we now know which players will be attending. The NFL released a list of 22 players that have accepted invitations to attend the draft. Likely No. 1 pick Myles Garrett will not be attending. He will be at home, and is expected to do something with the NFLPA to promote his selection.
Most everybody on the list below will be drafted in the first round. There is a chance one or two could slip into the second round, but the NFL generally tries to make sure they won’t have someone waiting in the green room when day one ends.
The 49ers hold the No. 2 pick and have been connected to Solomon Thomas, Malik Hooker, Reuben Foster, Jamal Adams, Leonard Fournette, and other players. Thomas, Adams, and Fournette will all be in attendance. Foster and Hooker will not.
