Those new players are:

Bradford, Florida CB Joe Haden, Clemson RB C.J. Spiller, Wake Forest CB Brandon Ghee, Iowa OT Bryan Bulaga, Texas DT Lamarr Houston, Georgia Tech WR Demaryius Thomas, Cal RB Jahvid Best.

Those players join a list that already included: Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh, Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma State OT Russell Okung, Georgia Tech DE Derrick Morgan, Oklahoma OT Trent Williams, Tennessee DT Dan Williams, Tennessee S Eric Berry, and Penn State DT Jared Odrick.

Invites remain out to the other three top quarterbacks -- Jimmy Clausen, Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy, according to a source. The league may also still invite other players.

With a full three days of the draft now in order, the NFL is inviting more players, and some likely to go outside the first round. The draft takes place April 22-24 in New York, with players arriving the 20th for charity events and league duties.

The unveiling of the top 10 draft picks of all-time, as selected by fan voting, will take place during the draft as well. The league released the top 20 picks last week.
