Sources have confirmed that the following players will be among those in New York when the 75th NFL draft begins Thursday, April 22 in primetime at 7:30 p.m. ET:
Tebow, the most intriguing player in this draft, is still considering a trip to Manhattan, according to his agent, Jimmy Sexton. The league is allowing for greater flexibility than ever before, with players not bound to the green room at certain times and able to return to their hotels and have privacy. The league realizes some players are borderline picks from one round to another, so it will work with them to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
The players will arrive in New York on Tuesday night of draft week and do charity and sponsor events, including clinics for children and a visit to a children's hospital, before Thursday.
The NFL expects to host more players than ever before on-site in New York on each of the first two days of the draft. The league will finalize its list of prospects who will be in attendance in the weeks ahead.
