2024 NFL Mock Draft: 1-Round (Brad)

  1. Caleb Williams – QB Chicago Bears

    At this point, it seems like a foregone conclusion (unless one of these teams with multiple picks does something crazy come draft night) that the Bears take Williams. They’ve done an excellent job putting talent around him, they have a solid offensive line and a developing defensive line so this could be a great spot for Williams to land.

  2.  Jayden Daniels – QB Washington Commanders

    We go from a great spot to…well the Washington Commanders. There are some weapons on offense but the line is ok, and the defense is decent but can Dan Quinn turn this thing around on the shoulders of Daniels? Daniels has a ton of potential and all the physical tools you want but still needs some development and will need consistency from the coaching staff.

  3. Drake Maye – QB New England Patriots

    Another team in transition, Maye could be just the thing this franchise needs to start over after a rocky Mac Jones tenure in Foxboro.

  4. Marvin Harrison Jr – WR Arizona Cardinals

    QB-needy teams will lose out on this electric playmaker, and thankfully for Arizona, they have their quarterback, he just needs some weapons. As long as Murray stays healthy, this could be a great duo for a long time!

  5. Joe Alt – LT Los Angeles Chargers

    I know everyone is pegging them to go wideout but they need to solidify their offensive and defensive lines. Alt is a stud and with a couple of young wideouts in Josh Palmer and last year’s first-rounder Quentin Johnston, take the best player available and be happy.

  6. Malik Nabers – WR New York Giants

    They need a WR1, they have plenty of depth options and Nabers gives them that elite option if they want to try again with Daniel Jones.

  7. Dallas Turner – EDGE Tennessee Titans

    They have their QB, now they need guys that can attack the QB and Turner would be a huge talent boost to that defense.

  8. Terrion Arnold – CB Atlanta Falcons

    It appears as though their offense is pretty well set for now but they could use a corner to play opposite AJ Terrell, Arnold has such a great athletic profile and is a strong tackler that it just feels like a perfect fit for the two.

  9. Jared Verse – EDGE Chicago Bears

    This feels like the perfect spot to trade back for the team that wants to jump up and Get McCarthy but if they stick at 9, why not take my favorite Edge rusher in the class? They’ve done a good job addressing the offensive line, and you stick him opposite Sweat and opposing offensive coordinators get to stay up late figuring out how to stop them both.

  10. Olu Fashanu – OT New York Jets

    Protect Aaron Rodgers at all costs, and as much as they’ve invested in the offensive line early recently, they still need more help!

  11. JJ McCarthy – QB Minnesota Vikings

    It’s hard to imagine all 4 QBs going this early but seems like either the Vikings or the Broncos could look to take the talented Michigan signal caller here.

  12. Laiatu Latu – EDGE Denver Broncos

    They need QB, and they also need an EDGE rusher, so if they miss out on one wait and take the other!

  13. Rome Odunze – WR Las Vegas Raiders

    They could be another team that could go a few directions but why not take an elite wideout to pair with Adams?

  14. Taliese Fuaga – OT New Orleans Saints

    Another team that needs lots of help but trenches are the most important. 

  15. Quinyon Mitchell – CB Indianapolis Colts

    They have their quarterback, they have some solid line play, and they really do need a number one corner, and Mitchell could be that player. He’s got a well-rounded skillset and high football IQ that could be huge for the Colts.

  16. Troy Fautanu – OT Seattle Seahawks

    The Seahawks are in an interesting spot, in my mocks I really think they trade down but for the sake of staying put, they just take the best player and figure out how to make it work. I could see them taking a defensive tackle as well if they don’t take an offensive tackle.

  17. Nate Wiggins – CB Jacksonville Jaguars

    They could use a nice CB2 and Nate Wiggins has a great size/speed/athletic profile and could really be their #1 in time.

  18. Brock Bowers – TE Cincinnati Bengals

    The Bengals are about the only team I could see spending a 1st on a tight end, so why not take the best one and give Burrow another weapon?

  19. Amarius Mims – OT Los Angeles Rams

    They could use a couple of tackles really, so why not take the best one available at this time? The dude is massive and has some really intriguing traits that could be hugely in protecting Stafford.

  20. Jackson Powers-Johnson – C Pittsburgh Steelers

    JPP brings a great first step and burst, and probably steps in from day one.

  21. JC Latham – OT Miami Dolphins

    They spent more resources on the defensive line this offseason, so I could see them looking toward the offensive line in the draft.

  22. Chop Robinson – EDGE Philadelphia Eagles

    Philly is in a weird spot, I wanted to take another OT here but you really can’t have enough edge rushers, and Robinson has some elite traits that could be huge in the Eagles defensive scheme.

  23. Cooper Beebe – IOL Minnesota Vikings

    He’s a smart, strong instinctual interior offensive lineman, he could easily step in and lead this offensive line from day one. 

  24. Graham Barton – OL Dallas Cowboys

    I would’ve given Beebe to Dallas but with Minnesota landing their QB earlier, they look to protect him and in turn, causes Dallas to have to take the next talented lineman. He could be a tackle or they could kick him inside, he’s so flexible that he could play in either spot.

  25. Cooper DeJean – DB Green Bay Packers

    Green Bay needs DB help, with who’s been drafted already, I could see them take DeJean and use him in a variety of roles in the secondary. He’s a sure tackler and has enough athletic ability to help as a corner or safety.

  26. Kool-Aid McKinstry – CB Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Tampa traded away one of their top corners, and have a strong enough roster that they could take Kool-aid here and not make him start immediately but bring him along in time.

  27. Brian Thomas Jr – WR Arizona Cardinals

    I don’t know that I believe Thomas is here in the Draft but if so, Arizona could easily use multiple receiving threats for Kyler, and he is a different type of wideout than Harrison Jr that they could be a formidable 1-2 combo.

  28. Byron Murphy II – DL Buffalo Bills

    They need WR help badly, so this could be one but Murphy would be a huge help along that defensive line. He could play across the line has a great burst and is so good at attacking the qb.

  29. Adonai Mitchell – WR Detroit Lions

    Detroit can sit back and take what the board gives them but I’d really be surprised if they are picking at 29, feels like they could slide back or jump up if they have a player they want bad enough. Mitchell is just so fast, and just imagine putting him out there with Jamo, ARSB, Gibbs, and LaPorta and how do you stop that? 

  30. Xavier Worthy – WR Baltimore Ravens

    Baltimore could go with a lineman but could also see them taking another playmaker for Lamar, similar to what we have with Detroit, it’s just another chess piece to make defensive coordinators’ lives miserable.

  31. Tyler Guyton – OT San Francisco 49ers

    San Fran’s tackles are aging and they could take a guy like Guyton and let him be their depth for a year or two, or with his athletic profile, I could see them slide players around to get Guyton out there early.

  32. Johnny Newton – DL Kansas City Chiefs

    The champs have the luxury of just taking whomever they like the most, so why not build on strength with a player who could play anywhere along that line for them?
