Twenty-five top prospects, who are expected to be selected on Thursday or Friday night (April 28-29), are confirmed to attend the 2016 NFL Draft at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University in Chicago.

That includes a record-tying five players from Ohio State: CB Eli Apple, DE Joey Bosa, T Taylor Decker, RB Ezekiel Elliott and LB Darron Lee. Ohio State's five players equal the record set by Alabama in 2012.

Twelve NCAA head coaches will join their players in the green room as they await their selections.

The draft begins with the first round tonight. It continues on Friday, April 29, with Rounds 2-3 and will conclude on Saturday, April 30 with Rounds 4-7.

The NFL Draft, which had been held in New York from 1965-2014, returned to Chicago last year for the first time since 1964. Chicago served as the location for the NFL Draft in 1938, 1942-44, 1951, 1962-64 and 2015.
