The 2014 NFL Draft is in just one day and as you prepare to see who the Seahawks select (and whom everyone else selects for that matter), here is a list of the prospects that will be in attendance on Thursday.
NFC communications director Randall Liu released the names in alphabetical order.

As Liu mentioned, the 30 prospects in attendance will be a new draft record.
A few of the names are expected to be read in the first round, but as there are only 32 picks on Thursday, some of the prospects on the list may be disappointed.
We can safely assume that DE Jadeveon Clowney, WR Sammy Watkins and QB Johnny Manziel, among others, will probably be selected before the second round starts on Friday.
However, players like QB Jimmy Garoppolo and CB Kyle Fuller may have to wait until the weekend starts to hear their names called.
The Seahawks have been linked as “interested” to a handful of the players on Liu’s list including wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Cody Latimer, Brandin Cooks, and defensive end Kony Ealy.
I noticed that Kelvin Benjamin is not on the list even though he will likely also be selected in the first round. Neither is DE Stephon Tuitt, G David Yankey or G Gabe Jackson, all of whom have also been predicted as potential candidates to be Seattle’s No. 32 selection.
The first round of the 2014 NFL Draft will start on Thursday at 5 p.m. PT. The Seahawks have the last pick in the first round.
