The New England Patriots are set to select at No. 3 in next week’s NFL Draft. The league sent out invitations to some of the top prospects and last week word came in that 13 players have accepted those invitations.

The prospects who will be in attendance, broken down by position:

QB – Jayden Daniels, Drake Maye, Caleb Williams
WR – Marvin Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers, Rome Odunze, Brian Thomas Jr.
OT – JC Latham
ED – Laiatu Latu, Darius Robinson, Dallas Turner
CB – Terrion Arnold, Quinyon Mitchell

Among the notable players who will not be in attendance are QB J.J. McCarthy, TE Brock Bowers, and OT Joe Alt, among others. Of the 13 who will be in Detroit for the draft, only Missouri’s Darius Robinson was not a first-round selection in the seven-round NFL Draft on Patriots Football Now. However, the league wants to avoid anyone being embarrassed by a prolonged stay in the waiting room, so there is likely intel that Robinson is likely to go Round 1.

It also means there is likely going to be a photo of the Patriots’ new addition posing on stage with a New England jersey, though trading back or selecting J.J. McCarthy are both still in play. Stay tuned.
