Which former SEC players will be in attendance for the 2017 NFL Draft?
At long last, the wait is over, the 2017 NFL Draft has finally arrived. The league’s annual college draft begins tonight and is being held in Philadelphia this year with several familiar faces from the SEC making the trip up to the City of Brotherly Love to take part in the festivities.
Considering the draft will begin in just a few hours, we thought it would be a good idea to refresh everyone which players will likely be taking the stage tonight to greet NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after being selected. These players and coaches will also be seen throughout tonight’s coverage on the draft’s red carpet and featured in the green room leading up to their selections.
The list features one notable absence, as the consensus top pick of the draft, former Texas A&M standout defensive end Myles Garrett, has decided to spend the draft at home with his family.
Here’s the list of former SEC players and active coaches that will be in Philadelphia tonight:
Alabama – Defensive end Jonathan Allen, offensive lineman Cam Robinson, and head coach Nick Saban.
LSU – Safety Jamal Adams, running back Leonard Fournette, cornerback Tre’Davious White, and head coach Ed Orgeron.
Tennessee – Defensive end Derek Barnett and head coach Butch Jones.
Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin was spotted at the Philadelphia draft early Thursday, but it’s unclear if he plans to stick around for the actual event.
