Record 26 Players Will Attend NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall


The 2012 NFL Draft will be attended by a record 26 players later this month, with 16 different schools represented. The most interesting name on the list, to me, is Boise State linebacker Shea McClellin. I have been mocking Shea to the Patriots in the first round for a couple weeks now, so I think he has a good shot of hearing his name called early. Here’s the full list in alphabetical order:

Alabama S Mark Barron (Alabama), WR Justin Blackmon (Oklahoma State), DT Michael Brockers (LSU), CB Morris Claiborne (LSU), DE Quinton Coples (UNC), DT Fletcher Cox (Mississippi State), TE Coby Fleener (Stanford), WR Michael Floyd (Notre Dame), CB Stephon Gilmore (South Carolina), OL Cordy Glenn (Georgia), QB Robert Griffin III (Baylor), ILB Dont’a Hightower (Alabama), WR Stephen Hill (Georgia Tech ), DE Melvin Ingram (South Carolina), LT Matt Kalil (USC), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (Alabama), QB Andrew Luck (Stanford), LB Shea McClellin (Boise State), DE Nick Perry (USC), DT Dontari Poe (Memphis), WR Rueben Randle (LSU), RB Trent Richardson (Alabama), DT Devon Still (Penn State), QB Ryan Tannehill (Texas A&M), LB Courtney Upshaw (Alabama), WR Kendall Wright (Baylor).

Last year, Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich attended the draft and wasn’t selected, but I don’t see anyone on this list who will go undrafted.
