Mike Pouncey Invited to the NFL Draft

Another player that the Bengals are looking at has been invited to attend the NFL draft. University of Florida center Mike Pouncey, who had a scheduled visit with the team yesterday, has been chosen as one of the 20 players extended invitations to attend the ceremony. While it's still unclear what kind of pressure the NFLPA is putting on prospects to boycott the draft out of solidarity with current players in their dispute with the owners -- the association was said to have plans to disrupt the draft which they denied -- what is clear is that Pouncey will be there, having already said that: "I’m going if I’m invited [...] I just feel like it’s a dream I’ve wanted my whole life. We’ve busted our tails to be in the draft, and it’s a dream come true." Good for him.

Below the jump is a list of the other 14 players known to be invited to the draft thus far. Come April 28 we may see one of these kids standing on the stage at Radio City Music Hall working hard to force back a grimace as they pose with their No. 1 Bengals jersey.
