2024 NFL mock draft spans seven rounds: Round 1 features five quarterbacks, six edge rushers, and five trades, creating an exciting start to the selections.

We’re nearly a week away from the kickoff of the 2024 NFL Draft (April 25-27 in Detroit). Having covered this event for two decades, I’ve learned to anticipate surprises that defy even the most meticulous mock drafts. Below, I’ve crafted one of many potential scenarios for the seven-round event, aiming to forecast some plausible yet unexpected selections. While I’ve confined trades to the first two rounds (totaling six), expect even more transactions come Friday and Saturday. This exercise aims to offer a glimpse into when players might be chosen throughout the weekend, providing insight into where your team might find value in positions of need. Ultimately, it’s about exploring possibilities beyond the conventional and embracing the unexpected.
This selection has appeared inevitable ever since Williams received special eligibility for the 2024 NFL Draft. His unique knack for making plays both inside and outside the pocket sets him apart, and as he continues to develop his game, I foresee him emerging as one of the top five quarterbacks in the league—a feat this franchise hasn’t witnessed since the AFL-NFL merger.
Daniels’ development as a quarterback over the past year positions him as a prime candidate for Washington. His standout performances with the Tigers in 2023 significantly elevated his draft prospects, distinguishing him as a potential future starter. Although his dynamic running ability garnered attention last season, it was his progress in pocket presence, particularly in the latter part of the season, that caught the eye. Offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury is poised to embrace working with Daniels.
The Patriots, since Tom Brady left in 2020, have seen the Bills, led by Josh Allen, take the spotlight in the AFC East. It’s understandable if New England is interested in a quarterback like Maye, who shares similarities with Allen in terms of physicality and arm strength. Maye, like Allen before him, faces criticism for inconsistency. Yet, there’s potential for the Patriots’ offensive coordinator, Alex Van Pelt, to mold Maye and capitalize on his abilities.
