Four of the highly rated quarterbacks in this crop also will be at AT&T Stadium – Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Lamar Jackson and Josh Rosen. Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield has chosen not to attend.
Barkley and Chubb are projected to go in the top five picks.
The other AP All-Americans planning to be on hand April 26 are Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson, Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith, and Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward.

Louisville CB Jaire Alexander Phillip Gaines Color Rush Jersey , Florida DT Taven Bryan, Texas-San Antonio DE Marcus Davenport, Virginia Tech LB Tremaine Edmunds, Alabama LB Rashaan Evans, LSU RB Derrius Guice, Florida State S Derwin James, UCLA T Kolton Miller, Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch, Washington DT Vita Vea Patrick Maroon Jersey , and Texas T Connor Williams.
The Minnesota Twins have reinstated shortstop Jorge Polanco after he served an 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.
Polanco was reinstated Monday before the Twins’ game with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Speaking through the team’s interpreter, Polanco said that the time away from the game ”was very difficult.”
The Twins are hoping that the 24-year-old shortstop builds off his breakout 2017 season. Polanco batted .316 with 10 homers and 42 RBIs over his last 55 games in 2017.
”I’m really glad that I’m back,” he said. ”Looking forward to going out there and playing hard.”
Polanco flied out to left in his first at bat of the 2018 season.
Twins manager Paul Molitor welcomed Polanco back.
”It’s good to see him,” Molitor said. ”He had to pay a price for something that happened. He took it head on, took accountability and did his time, so to speak.”
Molitor had a bit of advice for Polanco.
”Be yourself,” Molitor said. ”Don’t worry about trying to make an extreme impression or whatever it might be that you might try to make up for lost time. Just be the player that we know that you can be. That’ll be plenty good enough.”
To make room for Polanco on the 40-man roster, the Twins designated outfielder Ryan LaMarre for release or assignment.
