NFL Draft Invite List 2024: Which Prospects Will Be at the Event?

Thirteen prospects have accepted invitations to the 2024 NFL Draft in Detroit, including three of the top quarterback prospects and three elite wide receivers.

Earlier in April, the league announced that 13 players will be present at the 2024 NFL Draft, which will take place April 25-27 in Detroit. The lineup includes three of the top quarterback prospects and three elite wide receivers.

Who Will Be Attending the 2024 NFL Draft?

Attending prospects will walk the red carpet ahead of the first round on April 25 at Fox Theatre, which is located just north of downtown Detroit. The players will head to the green room, where they will await to hear their names called on the stage near Campus Martius Park and Cadillac Square Park in the heart of downtown Detroit.

The 13 players expected to be at the draft in person mark the lowest since the 2021 draft, when 13 prospects also attended. Seventeen players attended last year’s draft in Kansas City.

The list includes three of the top QB prospects in Drake Maye, Caleb Williams, and Jayden Daniels.

Williams, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2022 as the quarterback for USC, is expected to be the No. 1 overall pick to the Chicago Bears. In his Heisman-winning season, Williams threw for 4,537 yards, 42 touchdowns, and five interceptions.

Daniels and Maye are expected to follow directly after Williams at pick Nos. 2 and 3, which are held by the Washington Commanders and New England Patriots, respectively.

Daniels won the Heisman this season after leading LSU’s high-powered offense with 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns, and just four interceptions. Maye threw for nearly 8,000 yards and 62 TDs in his two seasons at the helm of North Carolina.

The receiver will also will be well-represented in Detroit, with Ohio State’s Marvin Harrison Jr., the top-rated player at the position, being joined by LSU teammates Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas Jr. and Washington’s Rome Odunze. Harrison, Nabers, and Odunze could be the top three receivers off the board.

Harrison is coming off his second straight season with 1,000 receiving yards for Ohio State, while Nabers racked up 1,569 receiving yards in 2023 with 14 TDs. Odunze put up 1,640 yards and 13 scores last season.

Three Alabama players — EDGE Dallas Turner, CB Terrion Arnold, and OT JC Latham — will be in attendance. UCLA EDGE Laiatu Latu, Toledo CB Quinyon Mitchell, and Missouri DL Darius Robinson will also be there.

Latham is the only offensive lineman set to be in Detroit for the draft. Of the five defensive players invited to Detroit, three of them are edge rushers. Turner, Latu, and Robinson are all considered to be some of the best pass rushers available in this year’s draft.
