There are always the riotous New York fans who dominate the peanut gallery at the draft, but it’s the players who attend that bring interest and drama to the event. We get to watch them getting their calls on their cell phone just before being announced, – which cuts into the suspense, but who cares?
We’re sure that if you’re a Green Bay Packers fan, you will be watching – especially on the first night when Ted Thompson and friends will be on the clock come the 26th pick. Will they trade that first-rounder or might they select one of the dudes listed below. It would be kind of nice for whoever is their pick to have them in attendance so they can stride out on the stage with those special Draft Day hats and hold up the Number 1 Green and Gold jersey.
The NFL announced the full list, along with a press release, today. For the complete press release, click here.
