2024 NFL Mock Draft

By Jared Smola | Updated on Wed, 24 Apr 2024 . 9:58 PM EDT


1. Chicago Bears - Caleb Williams, QB, USC

Williams has looked like the No. 1 pick of the 2024 draft since his freshman season Oklahoma. Moving on.

Get the skinny on Caleb Williams' dynasty value.

2. Washington Commanders - Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

There's been some drama about Daniels preferring to play elsewhere, but he ultimately doesn't have a choice. The Commanders get a QB with a tantalizing combination of deep-passing accuracy and elite rushing ability.

How high is Jayden Daniels' fantasy ceiling? Here's our take.

3. New England Patriots - Drake Maye, QB, UNC

The Patriots have reportedly fielded offers for this pick, but it'd be surprising if they passed up on a chance to land a franchise QB. Maye's game needs refining, but he boasts an ideal combination of size, arm strength, and athleticism.

See our thoughts on Drake Maye's dynasty value.

4. Arizona Cardinals - Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

The Cardinals will certainly have a chance to trade down with a team looking to land QB J.J. McCarthy. But it makes more sense for them to stand pat and take an elite prospect at a position of need.

Here's the full dynasty value report on Marvin Harrison Jr.

5. * TRADE * Minnesota Vikings - J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

It's possible that the Vikings could stay at pick 11 and land McCarthy. But, in this case, they trade ahead of the Giants to save us from watching Sam Darnold try to get Justin Jefferson the ball this year.

How exciting is J.J. McCarthy's fantasy upside? Check out his full scouting report.

6. New York Giants - Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

With the top four QBs off the board, the Giants get much-needed WR help for QB Daniel Jones in a make-or-break year.

Here's our take on Malik Nabers' dynasty value.

7. Tennessee Titans - Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

WR Rome Odunze is a definite possibility here. But the Titans ultimately opt to fill a bigger need with an NFL-ready LT.

8. * TRADE * New York Jets - Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

With a huge tier drop behind the top three WRs, I think there's a good chance a team makes a move up ahead of the Bears for Odunze. The win-now Jets make plenty of sense as that team. Odunze has drawn comparisons to former Aaron Rodgers BFF Davante Adams.

Get the lowdown on Rome Odunze's dynasty value.

9. * TRADE * New Orleans Saints - Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

With Odunze off the board, the Bears trade down a few spots with the Saints, who desperately need a reliable OT.

10. * TRADE * Atlanta Falcons - Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

After moving down a couple of spots, the Falcons finally break the seal on the defensive side of the ball. Turner isn't a lock to be the first defender taken, but he's generally considered the top pass-rushing prospect in this class.

11. * TRADE * Los Angeles Chargers - J.C. Latham, OT, Alabama

A 342-pound bully, Latham is a perfect fit at RT for Jim Harbaugh's Chargers.

12. Denver Broncos - Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

The Broncos have bigger holes to fill -- namely at QB. But Sean Payton would have a tough time passing on such a versatile chess piece for his offense.

Is Brock Bowers the next great fantasy TE? Here's our full scouting report.

13. Las Vegas Raiders - Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

The Raiders have been strongly linked to QB Michael Penix, but I think that pick is more likely to happen in Round 2 or via a trade-up into late Round 1. Fuaga could be an immediate starter for Vegas at RT or guard.

14. * TRADE * Chicago Bears - Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

Verse tallied nine sacks and was named First-Team All-ACC each of the past two seasons. He'd pair with Montez Sweat to give the Bears a dangerous pass-rushing duo.

15. Indianapolis Colts - Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

The athleticism-obsessed Chris Ballard will love Mitchell, who rocked a 9.79 Relative Athletic Score at the Combine.

16. Seattle Seahawks - Byron Murphy, DT, Texas

New HC Mike MacDonald gets a versatile 297-pounder who ranked No. 1 among all FBS interior defensive linemen in pass rush win rate last year.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars - Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

Arnold was a two-year starter at Alabama and often shadowed opposing No. 1 WRs. The Athletic's Dane Brugler compares him to Bears Pro Bowl CB Jaylon Johnson.

18. Cincinnati Bengals - Troy Fautanu, OL, Washington

There are reportedly some medical concerns with Fautanu. But he's an experienced, versatile O-lineman who would be a nice fit with the win-now Bengals.

19. Los Angeles Rams - Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

I really wanted to mock Xavier Worthy here -- a pick I'm sure Sean McVay would love. But Latu is simply a higher-graded prospect at a bigger position of need. He could even go inside the top 10 depending on how teams feel about his medicals.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers - Graham Barton, OL, Duke

Barton started at LT for Duke the last three seasons but will likely kick inside to guard or center in the NFL. The Steelers have a glaring hole at center. They can find a WR (that Arthur Smith won't use) on Day 2.

21. Miami Dolphins - Jer’Zhan Newton, DT, Illinois

This would be a fun spot for WR Xavier Worthy. But that'd be more of a luxury pick for a team with a lot of holes on defense, including on the interior defensive line after losing Christian Wilkins.

22. Philadelphia Eagles - Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

A one-year starter at Georgia with elite athleticism (9.59 Relative Athletic Score), Mims is a bit of a project but boasts big upside. Perfect pick for the Eagles.

23. * TRADE * Las Vegas Raiders - Michael Penix, QB, Washington

There's been a ton of smoke connecting Penix to the Raiders. Perhaps that marriage happens in Round 2, but trading back into the first for him gives the team the valuable fifth-year option.

24. Dallas Cowboys - Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

The Cowboys could use upgrades at three of five spots on the O-line, so it seems likely that they go there in Round 1. Guyton played both RT and LT at Oklahoma.

25. Green Bay Packers - Cooper DeJean, DB, Iowa

There's some debate whether DeJean will be best at CB or safety as a pro. The Packers have some questions at both positions.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

Robinson is the latest freak athlete to come out of Penn State, registering a 9.72 Relative Athletic Score. EDGE help is a top need for the Bucs, who didn't have a single player top 7.5 sacks last year.

27. Arizona Cardinals - Darius Robinson, EDGE, Missouri

After adding WR Marvin Harrison Jr. earlier in the round, the Cardinals turn their attention to a defense that was awful last year. Robinson has been getting first-round buzz after an 8.5-sack 2023 campaign.

28. Buffalo Bills - Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU

It's possible that the Bills make a move up to land Thomas. But there are also whispers that Thomas could be a draft faller because of a lingering shoulder injury that might require surgery. Either way, he has the upside to develop into a No. 1 WR for a Bills team in need of one.

Check out the full dynasty value report on Brian Thomas Jr.

29. Detroit Lions - Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

A three-year starter at Alabama with a high football IQ and an "alpha personality," per The Athletic's Dane Brugler, McKinstry feels like a perfect fit for Dan Campbell's defense.

30. * TRADE * Denver Broncos - Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

Denver can't seriously head into Week 1 with only Zach Wilson and Jarrett Stidham at QB, right? Despite having no second-round pick in this year's draft, the Broncos find a way to move back into the first for a QB who many believe is a great fit in Sean Payton's offense.

31. San Francisco 49ers - Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

The 49ers are unlikely to be able to afford both Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel long term. And can you imagine Worthy's 4.2 speed in Kyle Shanahan's scheme? * drool *

Get the full picture of Xavier Worthy's dynasty value.

32. Kansas City Chiefs - Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

The Chiefs make it back-to-back Texas WRs to close out Round 1. This could also be an OT, but Mitchell's upside would be tough to pass up if he lasts until pick 32.

Here's our full scouting report on Adonai Mitchell.
