Cool! Two Tennessee boys.

My money is on Berry being the sharpest dressed.

Oh, and Dan Williams can write me a small check from his signing bonus, just like Robert Ayers should have. haha

Sam Bradford will definitely be there. And knowing the Clausens I'd be very surprised if that whole clan doesn't show up.

I hope Tebow goes so I can see him cry when he doesn't get picked...

I wasn't aware that Dan Williams and Odrick were 1st round locks.

I wasn't aware that Dan Williams and Odrick were 1st round locks.

Dan Williams is a top 20 prospect in this draft and Odrick will go between 20-30 because of how many 3-4 teams will be looking for a 5-tech there. Neither are top 10 locks, but both are very safe first rounders.

Can't wait to see Suh in Honolulu blue!

Yeah, I'm really not getting why Odrick and Williams got an invite so fast over like, a handful of other prospects more worthy.

Williams I can get into Odrick could very well fall out.

I do hope Tebow decides to stay home, he won't be selected in the first most likely so he'd just sit there and everyone will be talking about him all the damn time... Plus it's awkward to see them have to sit there.

If you think Timmy is not going to get drafted then you need help.

Meh... One could always hope, but I'll be happy with seeing him fall out of the second. My guess is that tears will start running at about #49...

Odrick is random

Yeah the only name that pops out for me is Odrick. I think there could be an outside chance he hits the second, and imagine if it happens? He'd sit there all day and have to come back the next night for round two. That would be horrible.

The NFL wants some second round guys because of the new format, imo. Having some potential sliders and guys expected to go round 2 gives them more personal BS to tout and adds the "human element" to subsequent days of coverage - especially round 2.

Maybe the NFL dicusses with later round GMs about players like Odrick and if he was there they would select them? I know it sounds wild.

See I would agree with this in previous years, but I think it would be dumb to invite guys that might not get taken in round 1 this year.

In years past, they would just have to sit and wait until round 2. Now, if they don't get taken in round 1, they have to go home and wait until tomorrow, in which case I wouldn't even bother coming back. It's even more embarrassing for both the player and NFL now if it happens.

Surprised seeing Odrick and Williams in the list.

There are going to be way more guys in NY than in years past. Mainly because they are going to a 3 day format in prime time.

No way are they trying to imply that Dan Williams or Jared Odrick are locks for the top 15.

I'm still waiting for my invite, I'm guessing lost in the mail?

Its interesting that there are so many Dline and Olineman..clearly thats the strength of the draft..but normally u see some skill position players

Odrick is random

I don't think Odrick is random at all. He is the prototypical 5-Tech and seems to be the only one at the top of this draft. I think there is a good chance Odrick does not make it out of the first 20 picks due to positional scarcity and need.

maybe they feel bad for Tebow, who will probably sit there alone for a while after the top 15, and figured they'd get him some company and invite Odrick? That way they can like sit together?
