Jameis Winston made headlines last year when he opted not to attend the draft in person, preferring for his own private gathering with family and friends in his hometown in Alabama. This year should be back to having the top pick on hand, as both Cal's Jared Goff and North Dakota State's Carson Wentz will be in Chicago for the draft.

Local prospects who will be in attendance include Wharton and Gators CB Vernon Hargreaves, as well as Gators S Keanu Neal and FSU CB Jalen Ramsey, who also will have coach Jimbo Fisher with him. Former Gators coach Urban Meyer — with seemingly half his 2015 Ohio State team as potential first-rounders — will also be on hand.
