Luke Joeckel, expected by many to be the first selection in this year's draft, will attend the festivities later this month.

NFL releases complete list of who's attending the Draft


It’s probably the biggest party, other than the Super Bowl, that’s thrown each year by the NFL – the Draft involves a lot of hoopla, lots of tears and for a guy like Aaron Rodgers, a lot of angst.

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.
