NFL Draft 2011: 25 Players To Attend, Broncos' Selection Likely Among Them

The 2011 NFL Draft will have a record 25 players attending on Thursday, April 28. While neither of Colorado's top prospects, tackle Nate Solder and cornerback Jimmy Smith, will be there, the Denver Broncos' selection at No. 2 is almost assuredly among the players attending.

Among the likely choices who will be there to hold up a Broncos jersey are Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley, LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson, quarterbacks Cam Newton and Blaine Gabbert and Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller. Though out of those players either of the defensive tackles or Miller would be the best bet to display a Broncos jersey on stage.
