No. 4: Arizona Cardinals — Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

The Cardinals drafted one premier offensive tackle in 2023; they do the same in 2024 with Penn State’s Olu Fashanu. The highest-graded blocker on NFLMocks’ board, Fashanu is an instant upgrade for Arizona as he will help keep QB Kyler Murray healthy.

No. 5: Los Angeles Chargers — Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Malik Nabers would be the talk of the town at wide receiver if not for Harrison Jr. Still, the LSU product should hear his name early on Day 1, thanks to a blend of explosiveness and competitiveness at the catch point. Exactly what that Chargers offense needs.

No. 6: New York Giants — Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

In somewhat of a surprise, the Giants are able to land a potential franchise quarterback without sacrificing extra assets to move up. Jayden Daniels is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and a true dual-threat out of the backfield. His athleticism and deep ball will transform the offense.

No. 7: Tennessee Titans — Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

The Titans will likely give Will Levis a chance to claim the QB1 mantle full-time. To set him up with a fair shot, the offensive line needs reinforcements. Joe Alt flexes teach tape technique, both as a run blocker and in pass protection.

No. 8: Atlanta Falcons — Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

As was noted earlier in the mock draft, the Falcons already addressed the quarterback position. Using another top-10 pick on an offensive weapon may seem shortsighted, but it is necessary for Atlanta to make the most of Justin Fields.

Rome Odunze is the choice at No. 8, profiling as the ideal running partner for Drake London on the boundary. Odunze is impossible to defend in man coverage. His release package, top gear, and impressive hands make the Husky wideout a fun addition to the offense.

No. 9: Chicago Bears — Jer’Zhan Newton, DL, Illinois

After seeing eight straight offensive players taken, the Bears break the streak by selecting Jer’Zhan Newton. The Illinois defender is a disruptive presence from the interior, showcasing elite pass-rushing chops and the motor to be an every-down player.
