2011 NBA Draft Combine Participants Include 54 Players

The list of players participating in this year's NBA Draft Combine came out Wednesday afternoon, and while there isn't a whole lot of analysis to be taken from it, it is something worth factoring into the entire NBA Draft process considering 48 of the 53 players who attended last year were either drafted or played in the NBA this past season.

The event, which will take place May 18-22 at the Attack Athletics facility on the west side of Chicago and be run by famed trainer Tim Grover, will include the typical basketball drills along with agility, athletic and medical testing and plenty of interviews with teams. Like last year, the players won't actually be competing in any sort of five-on-five games.

Basically, we'll get to find out who is the longest, fastest and healthiest after the four days of workouts.

Everybody is listed after the jump. The biggest surprise inclusion, at least in my eyes, is Jeremy Tyler (which I'll write about later). It also doesn't contain any of the European prospects (Jan Vesely, Jonas Valancius, Bismack Biyombo, Donatas Motiejunas, etc.).
