As you may know, NFL teams are allowed to transport up to 30 nonlocal prospects to their facilities ahead of the Draft for a visit. There is no limit to the number of local prospects a team can bring to its facility, however. Players who reside in or attend college in the metropolitan area do not count against that 30 player limit.
The Jets held a local pro day last week for area prospects.
Kristian Dyer has details on some of the local prospects who attended.
One player fast drawing some interest is Phazahn Odom, the Fordham tight end who has some good film and measurables at his recent Pro Day. Per a source he was at the Giants local day yesterday and checked in with the Jets on Friday.
Metro reported earlier this week that several Rutgers players were going to attend both local days. Guard Chris Muller, wide receiver Carlton Agudosi, wide receiver Vance Matthews, safety Anthony Cioffi, wide receiver Andre Patton and defensive end Darius Hamilton were all at the Giants and Jets local days. In addition, Metro reported that Kansas defensive back Tevin Shaw was also slated to make both local days as well.

Per source, Wagner's Najee Harris has been invited to the #Eagles local pro day. Already attended #Giants and #Jets last week. #EaglesDraft— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) April 12, 2017
Again, these players do not count against the 30 prospect limit the Jets have for visits.
