This is just the preliminary list of those that have confirmed to attend with more being announced as this year’s draft gets closer. It’s expected more will attend and hopefully, it’ll be another memorable event capped off with bold moves, trades, and surprise decisions by teams.
Speaking of which, the New York Jets have already started quite the commotion after they made a huge trade heading into this year’s draft. They gave up a lot in order to move up from the No. 6 overall pick to No. 3 with hopes of selecting their next franchise quarterback. Hopefully, when they make that decision, that quarterback will be live in attendance to begin the journey of being the next face of the franchise.
