You can read the full press release from the NFL here. 

This is basically the same list i posted a week ago, so there isn’t any real surprises here. If you missed the list last week, The biggest surprises in my book were the two florida St. players Menelik Watson and EJ Manuel. generally the NFL talks to teams to determine who they invite, so there is a good chance that these guys will be drafted higher than originally expected.
