With the impending ruling on the lockout situation looming over fans, players and owners, the NFL has invited a record 25 rookies to New York for the 2011 NFL draft.

There is no clear cut reason as to why and many conspiracy theories are already flying around the web. However, the NFL may be looking for some extra feel good moments on stage with the commish and having 25 or so of them does not seem like not such a bad idea at this point.

Marcell Dareus, DT Alabama
Nick Fairley, DT Auburn
