Liuget will attend draft

Illinois defensive tackle Corey Liuget became the seventh prospect to publicly announce he intends to be at the NFL Draft, telling The (Champaign, Ill.) News-Gazette that he'll be at Radio City Music Hall on April 28.

Liuget has enjoyed a strong pre-draft circuit, and has steadily moved up many teams' boards. The Miami native is viewed as a potential first-round prospect by NFLDraftScout.com, and boasts good versatility. His ability to generate a pass rush from the three-technique and nose spots will excite teams using four-man fronts. His experience at the five-technique and nose tackle positions his season should intrigue 3-4 teams, as well.

The other players to publicly commit to being at the draft include UCLA linebacker Akeem Ayers, Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn, Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones, Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller, LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson and USC offensive tackle Tyron Smith.
