Top Prospects Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, and Jayden Daniels Confirmed for 2024 NFL Draft Attendance

Thirteen prospects have confirmed their attendance at the 2024 NFL Draft on April 25, as announced by the league on Thursday. Among the attendees, there will be a strong presence of quarterbacks, including Caleb Williams from USC, Jayden Daniels from LSU, and Drake Maye from North Carolina. These three quarterbacks are expected to lead the incoming class of signal-callers, with Williams being considered a top choice for the Chicago Bears’ No. 1 pick.

This year’s draft will be held at Campus Martius Park and Hart Plaza in Detroit, making it the first time the NFL will host the event in Michigan. In contrast, last year’s draft was held at Kansas City’s National WWI Museum and Memorial and Union Station, which was the largest venue in the draft’s 88-year history.

The list of confirmed players follows a previous lengthy list of invitees that was sent out in February, with only some players accepting the invitation. Among those who will attend are Missouri’s Darius Robinson, an unexpected guest who is a first team All-SEC defensive lineman and a potential first-round pick. Robinson was one of eight Missouri prospects to attend the NFL scouting combine this year, setting a record for the school. Additionally, seven SEC players will be present at the 2024 draft, representing the most attendees from any conference this year.

The event will kick off with the first round on Thursday, followed by rounds 2-7 on April 26-27. Though there have been adjustments in betting odds regarding some players like Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy, it remains unclear how NFL talent evaluators and front-office members view their draft stock. McCarthy, among others, will not be attending the draft.
