NFL Mock Draft 2024


The Super Bowl 58 matchup for Las Vegas is set for Feb. 11 with the NFC champion 49es meeting the AFC champion Chiefs. That also means the first-round order for the 2024 NFL Draft is set through pick No. 30.


With the Lions and Ravens losing on Sunday, they are selecting right behind Bills, who were eliminated in the divisional playoffs. As there’s still mystery of what the Bears will do at No. 1, there’s not much change at the top, but the latest edition has a shakeup of picks elsewhere.


As the pre-draft process ramps up with the Senior Bowl and the practices leading up to this week, here’s looking at the latest updated Sporting News mock draft:

NFL Mock Draft 2024


1. Chicago Bears (from Panthers)


Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State (6-3, 202 pounds)


The Bears might think about moving on from Justin Fields as their franchise QB despite his strong play down the stretch. They also could look to trade this pick for the second consecutive offseason to get a haul in return. But if they stand pat, it would be awesome to add Harrison to help Fields after seeing the huge impact of giving him D.J. Moore.


2. Washington Commanders (4-13)


Caleb Williams, QB, USC (6-1, 218 pounds)


The Commanders can bring the Washington, D.C., native home should the Bears pass and get a desired franchise QB option for their looming new coaching staff after they hit the wall with overwhelmed Sam Howell. Williams, despite some disappointment to end his Trojans career, remains the complete dual-threat dynamo and worthy team leader.


3. New England Patriots (4-13)


Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina (6-5, 220 pounds)


The Patriots have already waved the white flag on Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe, neither of whom worked out at all as a pocket passer. Here they can go for the much bigger arm and athletic upside of Maye, who is a better version of Howell, his Tar Heels predecessor.


4. Arizona Cardinals (4-13)


Malik Nabers, WR, LSU (6-0, 200 pounds)


The Cardinals won’t be re-signing Marquise Brown and need a true No. 1 target as they don’t have another such option to complement go-tight end Trey McBride for Kyler Murray. Nabers can be just that with his smooth route-running and hands to go with great quickness.

5. Los Angeles Chargers (5-12)


Jer’Zhan Newton, DT, Illinois (6-2, 295 pounds)


The Chargers can think about corner, edge rush and offensive line to kick off the first draft under Jim Harbaugh, but they also need to get much better on their interior front. Harbaugh can tap into a former Big Ten foe of Michigan for help. Newton will offer nice natural run-stopping ability and pass-rushing upside for new defensive coordinator Jesse Minter.


6. New York Giants (6-11)


Rome Odunze, WR, Washington (6-3, 201 pounds)


The Giants can also think of upgrading their offensive line but Nabers might be too difficult to pass up to add a much-needed true No. 1 wideout, completing their rebuild with the quick Wan’Dale Robinson and speedy Jalin Hyatt. Odunze is as an explosive size-speed vertical threat in his own right but is also a complete top target.


7. Tennessee Titans (6-11)


Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame (6-7, 316 pounds)


The Titans need to address offensive tackle badly after pass protection was a mess outside, for the sake of Will Levis’ bright future. After they chose to take left guard Peter Skoronski in last year’s draft. they can tap into the best left tackle option in this class. Alt has a terrific blend of nimble feet and powerful frame.


8. Atlanta Falcons (7-10)


Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU (6-4, 210 pounds)


The Falcons need a franchise QB for a quick turnaround under their new coach as they work to clean up the Desmond Ridder-Taylor Heinicke mess. Daniels is an explosive and fast rushing threat. The reigning Heisman winner also has proved to have a dynamic deep arm. Daniels would allow the Falcons to get the most out of their other recent first-round offensive skill players (Bijan Robinson, Drake London and Kyle Pitts) as his physical talent meshes well with all of them.


9. Chicago Bears (7-10)


Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama (6-4, 240 pounds)


The Bears used a second-round pick to land former Commanders star Montez Sweat, coming off a 12.5-sack season that gave him his first Pro Bowl nod, but they could use an explosive young end opposite him. Turner is a fine pass rusher but also an impact all-around defender who also makes plays vs. the run.


10. New York Jets (7-10)


Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia (6-4, 240 pounds)


The Jets could also think about offensive line help given that was a major issue for their non-Aaron Rodgers quarterbacks. Then again, Rodgers seems to have some control of what they do and should see Bowers is a special mismatch-creating weapon who would play perfectly off Garrett Wilson downfield and Breece Hall out of the backfield.
