Twenty-two top prospects, who are expected to be selected on Thursday or Friday night (April 27-28), are confirmed to attend the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia, the NFL announced today. 

Louisiana State leads all colleges with three players in attendance, while the Pac-12 leads all conferences with seven prospects confirmed to attend the event. 

Thirteen NCAA head coaches will join their players in the green room as they await their selections. 

The draft begins with the first round on Thursday night, April 27 and continues Friday, April 28, with Rounds 2-3. The draft will conclude on Saturday, April 29 with Rounds 4-7. 

The NFL Draft, which had been held in Chicago in each of the past two years, returns to Philadelphia for the first time since 1961.
