Especially European guys. Makes sense, it's a long trip, and if you don't think you'll be picked until late (or at all), might not be worth the trip. Or, you know, alternate plans and all.
Yeah, but I don't know why that would be a good or a bad sign, to be honest. Some later round guys aren't brought over by their agents due to the fact that sitting there for two days just to return home having seen friends' and teammates' names called and not your own is a traumatizing experience, I'm sure. Generally, they don't bring anyone over without being certain they'll be drafted.
