NFL Draft 2011: 25 Players To Be In Attendance Thursday Night

The 2011 NFL Draft will take place on Thursday night, and there will be a record number of players actually in attendance. The league has announced that 25 players will be there on Thursday, and in all likelihood, not all of them will actually be picked. Cam Newton, of course, headlines the list, which also includes Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams.

In the past, the NFL invited only a few players to the actual draft, but it has been increasing that number in recent years, culminating in this year's record. Many of the players invited are projected to be second-round picks in many of the latest 2011 NFL mock drafts.

Here is a list of all the players who will be in New York on Thursday:

  1. Prince Amukamara
  2. Akeem Ayers
  3. Adrian Clayborn
  4. Randall Cobb
  5. Marcell Dareus
  6. Nick Fairley
  7. Blaine Gabbert
  8. A.J. Green
  9. Mark Herzlich
  10. Mark Ingram
  11. Julio Jones
  12. Cameron Jordan
  13. Von Miller
