Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett and Alabama tight end O.J. Howard have made other plans for April 27, but there will still be plenty of players on hand for this year’s NFL Draft.

The league announced the list of 22 players who will be attending the event in Philadelphia later this month. It includes three of the top quarterbacks in this year’s class — North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson and Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer — as well as Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas, who is a popular mock draft pick to land with the 49ers with the second overall selection.

Ohio State cornerbacks Gareon Conley and Marshon Lattimore will be there, but safety Malik Hooker won’t join his Buckeye teammates on the big night. LSU will have three players in attendance with cornerback Tre’Davious White joining safety Jamal Adams and running back Leonard Fournette. Defensive tackle Jonathan Allen and tackle Cam Robinson will be repping the Alabama Crimson Tide while Washington also has two attendees in cornerback Kevin King and wide receiver John Ross.

Colorado cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, Tennessee defensive end Derek Barnett, Utah tackle Garrett Bolles, Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis, USC cornerback Adoree’ Jackson, Michigan State defensive tackle Malik McDowell, UCLA linebacker Takkarist McKinley, Wisconsin tackle Ryan Ramczyk and Temple linebacker Haason Reddick round out the group.

    Glad to see no one from Michigan State will be there. Just today they had their fourth player suspended for “possible” involvement is a sexual assault this past weekend. The first three players, and a member of the football staff, have been out since January for a separate incident.

    East Lansing has practically become Guatemala of the 1970 lately.

    Is the almighty ChristianMcAffery above above and beyond attending this life altering experience (THE NFL DRAFT)?

    Could this be a red flag Mr. Richardson? Or, is this an admission of success?

    It all boils down which players do what by about week four of the regular season and the rest of next year.

    I’m guessing that the Panthers will draft one of the 22 on the list and that he will shine!

    Keep Pounding Panthers-

    Chidobe Awuzie might be my new favorite NFL player name… right alongside D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Barkevious Mingo. Glad to see Colorado pop up on this list!

    QBs might be sitting there a long time.

    When a league is preparing to pay you millions of dollars it would be nice if you to show up to promote the brand

    What an awkward lineup. No bad players in the group, but some of them are third-rounders at best. Which is weird, because Goodell is well-known for his sound and reliable decision making.

    Kizer and Deshaun are not going in Round 1. Good luck kids

    Didn’t read the article very closely, I take it.

    I feel kinda bad for a few of these guys. All 1st round talent, but sometimes a run on needs from 20-32 leaves a few guys sitting until Friday. I guarantee the Drama from the Green Room on this one. Just the way Goodell likes it… all about the ratings. These young men have worked hard and now have to roll the dice on being a mockery (pun intended). Sad.

    I will not be watching the first 2 days of the draft this year. I am a Pats fan.

    I am curious about one thing about these 22 players, do they have to pay with what little money they have before the draft to be drafted or does the NFL spot their air fair and hotel room where the draft is?
