Saint Louis School grad and Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota will be making a homecoming when the NFL Draft rolls around starting Thursday, April 30.

The Mariota camp told KHON2 Tuesday that he won’t attend the draft, which is moving from New York City to Chicago this year. Instead, he’ll celebrate his pending selection amongst friends and family in Honolulu, where KHON2 has been invited and will be providing coverage.

The three-day event starts with the first round on April 30.

Tuesday afternoon, ESPN analyst Todd McShay’s latest mock draft had Mariota sliding up to the number-two slot and the Tennessee Titans.

And the latest poll question up on NFL.com asks “what is the most likely landing spot for Marcus Mariota?” The choices are Browns, Buccaneers, Jets, Rams, Titans, or some other team.
