We're still over 24 hours away from the NFL Draft, but fans received an early look at the setup in Las Vegas this Wednesday.

A video of the stage for the 2022 NFL Draft surfaced on social media. It's evident that the red carpet and the actual stage are by the Fountains of Bellagio.

Kelsey Pietrangelo, the NFL's manager of live event operations, said the stage for the draft stretches 252 feet. The construction of this stage went underway on April 13.

“It takes a team to do it,” Pietrangelo said, via Las Vegas Review-Journal . “The company that built that stage and installed the carpet is local from Las Vegas. Anywhere we go we try to tap into the local vendors.”

Here's how the stage looks for this year's draft:

There are 21 prospects who'll be in attendance for the first round of the draft.

Malik Willis, Matt Corral, Garrett Wilson, Jameson Williams, Drake London, Chris Olave, Evan Neal, Ikem Ekwonu, Charles Cross, Zion Johnson, Aidan Hutchinson, Kayvon Thibodeaux, Jermaine Johnson II, George Karlaftis, Jordan Davis, Devonte Wyatt, Devin Lloyd, Nakobe Dean, Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner, Kyler Gordon and Kyle Hamilton will be present for Day 1.

Coverage of the NFL Draft begins at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday.
