It has been said that, the prospects will boycott going to New York, to walk across the stage at Radio City Music Hall.

"I think it's a shame for young men that are starting their careers in the NFL, that are having that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come across the stage, become an NFL player for the first time [to not be able to attend the draft]," Goodell told Schefter. "It's a really special moment and I hope they get to experience it."-Roger Goodell

On NFL Live, Nick Fairley and Patrick Peterson said they have not been contacted by anyone to not show up on draft day.

I would like to know where all these rumors coming from about prospects not showing up if neither Goodell nor Fairley and Peterson have not heard anything from anyone.

I'm not sure what the NFLPA has to gain by asking the top prospects to skip the draft. Seems like a petty move that won't gain the NFLPA anything, and is asking the prospects to give up a lot.
