Instead, Lotulelei will stay at home with his family in South Jordan and watch the draft on television.
"Being invited is a tremendous honor and I am grateful for the consideration," he said in a statement. "After discussing it with my family I have decided to stay in Utah for the draft so I can share this moment with all the people that have supported me my entire life. I expect over 50 family and friends at our home for this wonderful occasion."
Lotulelei was projected to be the #1 overall pick by some draft experts before being diagnosed with a heart problem at the NFL Combine.
Since then, Lotulelei has been medically cleared to resume all football activities at full speed. Most mock drafts have Lotulelei going somewhere in the top-10 picks.
BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah, who is also expected to be taken early in the first round, will attend the draft April 25th in New York City.
