A record 30 college prospects accepted an invitation to attend the 2014 NFL Draft, the NFL announced Tuesday.

Among those expected to be selected in the first round include South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack, and Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles.

The Houston Texans have the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, set for May 8-10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Of course, all of the prospects invited won't be selected in the first round and will have to spend a little more time in the green room before hearing their name called.
