According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, former Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be attending the draft in New York.

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, the NFL has extended invitations to players to attend the 2012 NFL Draft in New York City's Radio City Music Hall. According to Florio, 26 players will be attending the draft, which is one more than last year, and one of those 26 is former Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

They are, in alphabetical order: Alabama safety Mark Barron; Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon; LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers; LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne; North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples; Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox; Stanford tight end Coby Fleener; Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd; South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore; Georgia tackle Cordy Glenn; Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III; Alabama linebacker Dont'a Hightower; Georgia Tech receiver Stephen Hill; South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram; USC tackle Matt Kalil; Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick; Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck; Boise State linebacker Shea McClellin; USC defensive end Nick Perry; Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe; LSU receiver Rueben Randle; Alabama running back Trent Richardson; Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still; Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill; Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw; Baylor receiver Kendall Wright.

Tannehill is one of the more intriguing prospects in this year's draft class. He is considered a first-round talent, but is projected anywhere from the third overall pick to late first round. There are plenty of quarterback-needy teams outside of the Colts and Redskins, like the Browns, Dolphins and a few others. If they get more desperate for a future quarterback, they could look to trade up and grab Tannehill at No. 3. He could also fall to a quarterback-needy team later in the first round. We'll have to wait and see.
