2024 NFL Mock Draft – Brads FINAL 1st Round Mock!

We are here people, the draft is upon us, and the world’s at a fever pitch waiting to see what happens. It’s my turn to dive for one final 2024 NFL Mock Draft and make the predictions, though this time I’m doing the trades I think could possibly happen Thursday night. 

We know some moves will happen, a lot has been made about the Vikings and the Chargers having a gentleman’s agreement in place could be true (or not). I do see Minnesota moving up to a spot where they can land a quarterback, as they seem to believe that’s all they need to push for a playoff spot. 

2024 NFL Mock Draft – The Results are In!

  1. Caleb Williams – QB Chicago Bears

  2.  Jayden Daniels – QB Washington Commanders

  3. Drake Maye – QB New England Patriots

  4. JJ McCarthy – QB Minnesota Vikings

  5. Marvin Harrison Jr – WR Los Angeles Chargers

  6. Malik Nabers – WR New York Giants

  7. Joe Alt – OT Tennessee Titans

  8. Dallas Turner – EDGE Atlanta Falcons

  9. Rome Odunze – WR Chicago Bears

  10. Quinyon Mitchell – CB New York Jets

  11. Laiatu Latu – EDGE Arizona Cardinals

  12. Jared Verse – EDGE Seattle Seahawks

  13. Byron Murphy II – DT Las Vegas Raiders

  14. Chop Robinson – EDGE New Orleans Saints

  15. Terrion Arnold – CB Indianapolis Colts

  16. Amarius Mims – OT Denver Broncos

  17. Troy Fautanu – OT Jacksonville Jaguars

  18. Taliese Fuaga – OT Cincinnati Bengals

  19. Olu Fashanu – OT Los Angeles Rams

  20. Jackson Powers-Johnson – C Pittsburgh Steelers

  21. Brock Bowers – TE Miami Dolphins

  22. Cooper DeJean – DB Philadelphia Eagles

  23. JC Latham – OT Arizona Cardinals

  24. Graham Barton – OT Dallas Cowboys

  25. Jordan Morgan – OT Green Bay Packers

  26. Jer’Zhan Newton – DL Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  27. Brian Thomas Jr – WR Arizona Cardinals

  28. Troy Franklin – WR Buffalo Bills

  29. Kool-aid McKinstry – CB Detroit Lions

  30. AD Mitchell – WR Baltimore Ravens

  31. Nate Wiggins – CB San Francisco 49ers

  32. Ladd McConkey – WR Kansas City Chiefs

After pick #1, I think all bets are off. You have the top golf drama with Daniels and the Commanders, which almost makes it appear as though Drake Maye would be the pick but I anticipate the Commanders taking either QB, though I still leaned Jayden Daniels as I still think he is a slightly better prospect coming into the league. 

I do think more trades happen than what I did during this mock, on average, we definitely see more than 2 trades in any given 1st round (more than 5 in the last few years!). So expect this year to be no different, with the plethora of good talent at QB, EDGE, OT, CB, and WR, there are plenty of teams that will look to move around to target their guys.

Arizona could come away from this draft with 10-15 total picks and it wouldn’t surprise me in the least. They have their QB they think, so why not do what you can to add as much around him as possible? So I went into this draft thinking that maybe they would be smart to move down a little and try to get another first, if they could do that it would be amazing for their rebuild.
