25 prospects scheduled to attend NFL draft in Chicago
The NFL said Tuesday that 25 prospects are scheduled to attend the draft in Chicago at the end of the month.
Among the 25 players are five from Ohio State, including defensive end Joey Bosa, who is expected to be a high pick.
Other Buckeyes include cornerback Eli Apple, offensive tackle Taylor Decker, running back Ezekiel Elliott and linebacker Darron Lee. The five Ohio State players tie the mark set by Alabama in 2012.
Among the others scheduled to attend are Cal quarterback Jared Goff; Mississippi defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche; Clemson defensive ends Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd; UCLA linebacker Myles Jack; Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman; and Michigan State offensive tackle Jack Conklin.
Twelve college coaches, including Nick Saban from defending champion Alabama, are also scheduled to attend.
Other coaches include Ohio State's Urban Meyer, Florida State's Jimbo Fisher, and Clemson's Dabo Swinney.
The first round of the NFL draft will be April 28. The second and third rounds will be on April 29, and the final four rounds will be on April 30.
The draft returned to Chicago last year for the first time since 1964.
