More than likely, the Chiefs’ first round pick is on that list. The only real surprise for me was that QB EJ Manuel is planning on attending. Generally, the players that attend the draft are pretty much guaranteed to be taken sometime in the first round. Manuel is a player that is ranked as the fourth best QB in the class by NFL Draft Scout. The earliest he is expected to go is the second round.

The fact that he is showing up in NYC makes me wonder if he knows something we don’t.
