The 2024 NFL Draft is mere months away, eliciting excitement from the fan bases who have already had their playoff hopes dashed. Even for the teams still in the postseason hunt, the draft offers the chance to select a franchise cornerstone. In this mock draft, quarterbacks, wide receivers, and offensive linemen fly off the board.

Jayden Daniels, fresh off a Heisman-winning campaign, has made it a three-way conversation at the quarterback position. Caleb Williams and Drake Maye are still the favorites to come off the board before Daniels, but with three potential top-five selections, the 2024 class could match the previous year's group in that regard.

At wide receiver, the talent is seemingly endless. Marvin Harrison Jr. receives the most fanfare, but Rome Odunze and Malik Nabers are WR1 material in nearly any other NFL Draft. The depth behind these three, including Keon Coleman and Troy Franklin, stretches well past Day 1 of the event.

In perhaps the most stacked offensive tackle class of the decade, Olu Fashanu, Joe Alt, Taliese Fuaga, J.C. Latham, and Amarius Mims headline the unit, along with Graham Barton and Cooper Beebe, who both grade out as high-end starters at guard. It’s a great year to need a quarterback, a pass catcher, or a blocker.
