Former USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams, a projected top-five NFL draft pick, will attend the draft in Chicago.
“I don’t know why you wouldn’t go,” Williams said on Saturday after the Trojans’ spring game.
Quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, projected as possible top-10 picks, will watch the draft from home.
Williams has not visited the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have the No. 1 pick.
“I was just trying to soak it all in and enjoy the process,” Williams said.
Williams has said he would like to be the top pick. On Saturday, he said he does not care which team drafts him.
“It is a dream to play in the NFL, and it doesn’t matter what color jersey or helmet I’m going to be putting on,” he said.
