The NFL announced Tuesday evening that two former Florida Gators football players are among the top 26 prospects that have agreed to attend the 2015 NFL Draft at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University in Chicago.

Defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. and offensive tackle D.J. Humphries will be live at the NFL Draft when it returns to Chicago for the first time since 1964.

Fowler, considered to be a consensus top-five selection who could go as high as No. 3 overall, should be off the board early during the first round, which begins on Thursday, April 30 at 8 p.m.

Humphries worked his way into first-round consideration with impressive performances at the 2015 NFL Combine and Florida’s Pro Day. Though he will likely go on the first day, should he not be selected in the first round, he would not be the only player to be in the greenroom on Friday, May 1 when the second round begins at 7 p.m.

The NFL Draft will air live nationally on ESPN and the NFL Network. OnlyGators.com will offer full coverage of the event for the sixth consecutive year.

    Interesting that D.J. is invited to be at draft. Guess we were all wrong and they are considering him a first rounder to be invited.
