    Does anyone know which players have been invited? and once we know who is invited, which player do you think will be taken last, and when?

    There are only 5.

    Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Vince Young are for sure.

    I forget who the other 2 are but I think they are D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Mario Williams.

    I'll try and find a source and confirm this later.

    If the 5 you listed are correct then my guess is Young will be the last one taken.
    by the Raiders

    I don't buy Young to the Raiders. They signed Aaron Brooks and drafted Andrew Walters last year. There are other needs.

    On the NFL Network Friday night, Gil Brandt said A.J. Hawk declined an invitation to come to NY.

    Hos, is 5 players around par for the course or are there usually more than five? I really dont remember how many are usually in NY.

    IIRC, 5-7 players get invited every year.

    It used to be that a bunch of kids went.

    I will never forget when Marc Spindler was expected to be a 1st rounder and was sitting in the green room all alone until the 3rd round.

    In recent years fewer and fewer are invited.

    Yep and man you gotta feel for those kids.

    You know they have their agents and families there, they are excited thinking they will be a high pick and then have to sit there with the cameras and people staring at them.

    Felt for that Green Bay QB last year and he still went in the first round.

    Gil Brandt was just on total access and said they invited 7 this year but Hawk as was posted earlier turned them down.
