The 2017 NFL Draft is exactly two weeks away and now we know which players will (and won't) be attending this year's big event in Philadelphia. A total of 25 players are currently set to attend. Here's the full list:
S Jamal Adams, LSU
DT Jonathan Allen, Alabama
CB Chidobe Awuzie, Colorado
DE Derek Barnett, Tennessee
OT Garrett Bolles, Utah
CB Gareon Conley, Ohio State
WR Corey Davis, Western Michigan
RB Leonard Fournette, LSU
CB Adoree’ Jackson, USC
CB Kevin King, Washington
QB DeShone Kizer, Notre Dame
CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State
DT Malik McDowell, Michigan State
LB Takkarist McKinley, UCLA
OT Ryan Ramczyk, Wisconsin
LB Haason Reddick, Temple
OT Cam Robinson, Alabama
WR John Ross, Washington
DE Solomon Thomas, Stanford
QB Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina
QB Deshaun Watson, Clemson
CB Tre’Davious White, LSU
Potential No. 1 pick Myles Garrett is notably absent. Also note that potential Eagles targets Dalvin Cook and Christian McCaffrey aren’t on the list.
Of these 22 players, Adams, Conley, Davis, and Ross have reportedly met with the Eagles on official pre-draft visists in Philadelphia. For whatever that’s worth.
The Eagles drafted a player who attended the draft last year. His name is Carson Wentz. You may have heard of him.
Will the Eagles draft one of the attending players this year? There’s a decent chance. Philadelphia selects at No. 14 in the first round thanks to the Sam Bradford trade. And you can’t ever rule out a trade up (or down) with Howie Roseman around.
There are six corners on the list, so that’s always a possibility since it’s a huge need for Philadelphia. Defensive end has been rumored to be the direction the Eagles are going. Could it be Barnett? Does Thomas fall further than expected? Or how about one of the wide receivers going at No. 14?
Who do you think the Eagles will pick?
