Excitement is rising as the 2021 NFL Draft approaches at the end of this month. The league is scheduled to have a limited in-person event in Cleveland where some of the top prospects will be able to walk across the stage after their name is called.

It won't be quite the same as usual drafts given the ongoing pandemic, but it's still something close to normal after the NFL hosted a virtual event in 2020.

Invitations have already gone out to the top players in this year's draft. Some like Trevor Lawrence are opting to participate in the event virtually, but others will be in attendance at the live draft.

Here's the list of confirmed attendees for the 2021 NFL Draft so far.

Players Attending 2021 NFL Draft

1. Mac Jones, Alabama

2. Trey Lance, North Dakota State

3. Ja'Marr Chase, LSU

4. DeVonta Smith, Alabama

5. Kyle Pitts, Florida

6. Christian Barmore, Alabama

7. Gregory Rousseau, Miami

8. Micah Parsons, Penn State

9. Caleb Farley, Virginia Tech

10. Patrick Surtain II, Alabama

Four expected top picks from Alabama will attend the event in 2021, headlined by QB Mac Jones and Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith. Ja'Marr Chase, Kyle Pitts and Trey Lance are also among the players who likely won't wait long to hear their names called when the first round starts on April 29.
