Former Auburn defensive standout invited to 'virtually' attend NFL Draft
The NFL canceled all the fanfare surrounding the Draft later this month; however, the Draft will still be held as scheduled, but it will be held virtually.
This will be unlike any NFL Draft in recent history, but the NFL is still attempting to get players to “virtually” attend. Former Auburn defensive back Noah Igbinoghene announced he was one of the few to get the invite.

The 5-10, 198-pound Trussville, Alabama, native is largely projected as a late first-round pick or early second-round pick. Like his parents were, Igbinoghene is a track star, too. His father starred at Mississippi State and participated in the 1992 Olympics in the triple jump. His mother participated in the 1996 Olympics in the 400-meter relay. So, speed is in Igbinoghene’s game, and he has lots of it.
Igbinoghene signed at Auburn as a wide receiver, but he switched to defensive back in 2018. That certainly paid off, as he finished with 50 tackles in 2018 and 42 tackles in 2019.
The NFL Draft is scheduled for April 23-25.
