Corey Liuget to attend NFL draft


It wasn’t so long ago that we weren’t sure whether any rookies would attend the NFL Draft this year.   Now we learn almost every day that another rookie has committed to attending.

The latest to say yes is Illinois defensive tackle Corey Liuget.   Bob Asmussen of the Champaign News-Gazette spoke with Liuget over the weekend and confirmed the underrated interior option was invited and to Radio City Music Hall, and is excited to attend.

Silva had Liuget staying in state in his latest Mock Draft, sending him to the Bears at No. 29 in the first round.

The other 17 invites we know of:

Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, Cal defensive end Cameron Jordan, Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller, Alabama receiver Julio Jones, Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn, Alabama running back Mark Ingram, Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert, Georgia receiver A.J. Green, Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt, Missouri defensive end Aldon Smith, Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley, Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara, Alabama defensive tackle Marcel Dareus, USC tackle Tyron Smith, Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers, and USC tackle Tyron Smith, and UCLA Akeem Ayers.

  1. Is it too much to ask for a Wide Receiver?! We could pick up an offensive linemen in the second round. But the Bears haven’t done anything about the WR position in YEARS!!!!


    I’m not sure who told you that or where you got that misinformation from but HE IS NOT A WR!!

  2. I don’t understand why a probable day 2 pick would attend the draft. I’m happy for him that he got invited but I don’t want to see anyone disappointed and embarrassed on draft day (except Jerry Jones)

  3. @ dbellina

    You left out the NFLPA* I want to see them embarassed when no one shows up for there little gay draft party thing lol

  4. Why would you invite someone who’s not a sure-fire first round pick? It’s going to be awkward for him when he’s waiting by himself for an hour like Brandon Ghee did last year.

  5. With all these future union members attending the draft while the lockout remains in effect, should we expect one or more of them to show solidarity with their union brethren by having their own “black glove” moment ( aka John Carlos & Tommie Smith at 1968 Mexico Olympics in case your too young to remember) ?
