A new name has been added to the list of players who’ll be attending the draft on Thursday — and maybe Friday.

Per multiple reports, USC center Marcus Martin will head to Radio City Music Hall.  Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan has decided not to rescind his intention to attend.

Buzz has been building for Martin to make it to the bottom of round one, possibly as the choice of the Saints.

Here’s the initial list announced by the league.  They’re all still in, except for Jernigan.

With 30 guys attending the draft, it’s probable if not likely that one or more won’t be taken on Thursday night, requiring a return visit on Friday.  Last year, the highest-profile player to return for Day Two was Geno Smith.  The Jets eventually selected him in round two.

  1. Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan has decided not to rescind his intention to attend.

    what the heck does that even mean?

  2. So, is Jernigan going or not?

    Rescind means to revoke or cancel.

    You’re saying he decided not to rescind his intention to attend…so he decided not to cancel his intention to attend…meaning he plans on going. Then you say he’s not.

    Quite the confusing sentence there, no?

    They went for 5 or 6 a few years ago now to 30?

    Don’t worry, it will all make sense once Goddell extends the 1st round to 160 picks.

  4. Fight on, Marcus! Continue the tradition of SC linemen success in the NFL.

  5. I really like Marcus Martin. He’ll be a great center for a team in need one.

    And if the team already has a good but older center, he can slot in at guard and step up to center once the other guy becomes past-prime.

  6. Minimum active roster salary is $405,000. I would sit in the green room looking at my cell phone for all three days of the draft for that kind of money.

  7. it means either jernigan is going to the draft or the writer got it wrong the words mean he is not going to take back his promise to attend which implies he intends to attend and at some point considered not attending and changed his mind
