2024 NFL Draft Big Board: Drake Maye, Marvin Harrison Jr., and Caleb Williams Headline Loaded Class

The 2024 NFL Draft is fast approaching. Who joins Marvin Harrison Jr. atop the updated 2024 NFL Draft Big Board, and who is rising up the ranks?

As we proceed on the march to April and the eventual 2024 NFL Draft, what does the current Top 300 NFL Draft Big Board look like? Here’s the order in the present day — complete with top prospects, risers, and deep positional sleepers.

2024 NFL Draft Big Board

The 2023 college football season set the stage for what should be an action-packed 2024 NFL Draft weekend in April. Prospects like USC QB Caleb Williams and Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison Jr. draw the most attention, but the 2024 class has historic depth at multiple positions and should provide plenty of teams with the chance to improve.

As the Kansas City Chiefs have shown, converting on Day 2 and Day 3 picks can be just as important as converting in Round 1, and the 2024 NFL Draft class has the volume to facilitate opportunity in that regard.

Below, our Top 300 Big Board can help you get an eye for the class, and you’ll also find analysis of our highest-ranked players.

Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Harrison — the son of Indianapolis Colts Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison Sr. — is PFN’s No. 1 overall prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft, without accounting for positional value. He’s been in this spot since the very beginning, and a strong 67-catch, 1,211-yard, 14-touchdown 2023 campaign only solidified his place.

In my short time grading prospects, the younger Harrison is my highest-graded WR ever — slightly superseding LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase for that title. He’s arguably a generational prospect at the WR position, and looking at the tape, that reputation rings true.

At 6’3 1/4″and 209 pounds, Harrison combines elite athleticism with elite execution. He’s an unnaturally fluid and flexible route runner for his size who weaponizes that unique flexibility with sharp throttle control, devastating efficiency, and leverage IQ at stems.

At the catch point, meanwhile, Harrison uses his size and gravity-defying instincts to consistently convert in tight situations, and he also has the speed and bend to be utilized as a run-after-catch (RAC) threat and a weapon on designed touches.

As a versatile X-receiver, Harrison can be a target funnel and big-play threat on Day 1 with perennial All-Pro upside. He’s the kind of WR prospect who commands top-five capital. That’s not something that happens often.

Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

Each person’s choice for QB1 in the 2024 NFL Draft is entirely subjective. Between Williams and Drake Maye, it’s essentially a 1A-1B scenario. But on PFN’s board, Maye takes the top spot by a very slim margin.

Maye’s production dipped a bit in 2023, and the trademark flaws of a young QB are still there. Most notably, his decision-making can be inconsistent under pressure, and he’s still learning how to consistently throw with touch.

But at 6’4″ and 223 pounds, Maye has an elite physical foundation, and he’s shown he can use it to create or use it within the confines of the offense to elevate his squad.

Maye glides as a mover and has effortless off-platform ability and arm elasticity in off-script situations. And inside the pocket, he’s just as deadly with his rocket arm, pocket navigation skills, processing ability, and active anticipation and DB manipulation as a field general.

Maye has been compared favorably to Justin Herbert, and the tools are there to do that projection justice once he hits the professional circuit.

Caleb Williams, QB, USC

A Notre Dame performance that brought three first-half interceptions soured many on Williams in 2023. But overall, he played incredibly well once again last season, completing 68.8% of his passes at 9.4 yards per attempt for 30 touchdowns and five picks.

Williams didn’t repeat as the Heisman winner, and some concerns that came up in the preseason — that he held the ball too long in the pocket and sometimes passed up open windows in the short-range — still remain. Nevertheless, Williams keeps his status as a true franchise QB option.

USC’s vertical, relatively static scheme didn’t always help Williams find easy answers against pressure, and needing to score at least 40 points each week to account for poor defensive play also put added pressure on his young shoulders.

More often than not, Williams simply gave further proof of who he is: an ultimate competitor and the most prolific creator in the 2024 NFL Draft QB class.

He’s like a magician off script with his combined change of direction, instinctive feel, and all-encompassing angle freedom, and he has the arm to hit incredibly tight windows.

Williams is a hyper-elite creative threat with an enthralling mix of athleticism, arm strength, and elasticity — weaponized by his complete control and discretion. And within that off-script window, you often see the processing capacity necessary to be a high-level NFL starter.

Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

The battle for OT1 between Penn State’s Olumuyiwa “Olu” Fashanu and Notre Dame’s Joe Alt is based on preference. Fashanu still holds merit as an OT1 candidate and a blue-chip prospect, but Alt is the top OT in the 2024 NFL Draft on PFN’s board.

At almost 6’9″, 321 pounds, Alt’s combination of size, length, athleticism, and flexibility is simply unmatched — and that’s saying something, given the number of high-level athletes in the 2024 class.

Alt has an incredibly rare physical foundation. At 6’9″, it shouldn’t be as natural as it is for him to acquire and maintain leverage, and his recovery athleticism is just as enthralling. In 2023, he improved his independent hand usage and play strength, solidifying his stock as a franchise-changing presence up front.

The NFL Combine served to confirm Alt’s elite tools. At his size, he accrued a 5.05 40-yard dash with a 1.73 10-yard split, a 9’4″ broad jump, and a 7.31 three-cone in the 97th percentile for offensive tackles. Alt is an OT prospect you don’t overthink.

Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Brock Bowers is a tight end by label only. In truth, Bowers is an offensive weapon, and he’s one of the most versatile and dynamic playmakers in the 2024 NFL Draft. It’s why he cracks our top five, beating out other worthy prospects like Fashanu, Malik Nabers, and Terrion Arnold.

Bowers is different. He’s always been different. Right from the jump, as a true freshman at Georgia, he produced at a dominant clip. In three years with the Bulldogs, he amassed 175 catches, 2,538 yards, and 26 touchdowns, as well as 193 yards and five scores on the ground.

At 6’3″ and 243 pounds, Bowers brings size and toughness as a baseline, but he’s also an absurdly explosive athlete with searing open-field speed, crisp one-cut agility, and grating play strength.

Bowers’ physical foundation is rare, but he’s also an underrated route runner with nuance at stems, a versatile blocker, a bird of prey at the catch point, and a steamroller with his contact balance in open space.
