The NFL draft is rapidly approaching, specifically, it begins three weeks from tomorrow. It is always a point of interest as to which of the big prospects will be in attendance, to come out on the stage with a jersey after they have been selected. Here is the list of players that will be in attendance in New York this year:

Barkevious Mingo, Defensive End/Outside Linebacker, LSU Bjoern Werner, Defensive End, Florida State Chance Warmack, Guard, Alabama Cordarrelle Patterson, Wide Receiver, Tennessee Dee Milliner, Cornerback, Alabama DJ Fluker, Offensive Tackle, Alabama EJ Manuel, Quarterback, Florida State Eric Fisher, Offensive Tackle, Central Michigan Ezekial Ansah, Defensive End, BYU Geno Smith, Quarterback, West Virginia Jonathan Cooper, Guard, North Carolina Kenny Vaccaro, Safety, Texas Lane Johnson, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma Luke Joeckel, Offensive Tackle, Texas A&M Margus Hunt, Defensive End, SMU Menelik Watson, Offensive Tackle, Florida State Sharrif Floyd, Defensive Tackle, Florida Tavon Austin, Wide Receiver, West Virginia Xavier Rhodes, Cornerback, Florida State

Just as a point of note, many of the choices the Jets are considering do not appear on this list. I see no Jarvis Jones, or Dion Jordan, as two examples.

Do they not think the green and white will look good under the spotlights?
