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 carry on through the 2024 NFL Draft cycle, 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

From the very beginning of the 2023 college football season to the present day, the 2024 NFL Draft class has been defined by its playmaking talent and physical upside. That’s evident in the class’ top prospects — such as USC QB Caleb Williams and Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison Jr. — and in its unheralded weapons farther down the board.

The 2024 NFL Draft class’s depth is impressive across the board, and that depth will enable NFL teams to secure incredible value in April if they know where to look. Below, you’ll find our Top 300 Big Board and 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 prospect — slightly edging out 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 6’4″and 205 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 hyper-elite instincts to consistently convert in tight situations, and he also has the speed and bend to be utilized as a 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 a perennial All-Pro upside.

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 and overall process can be obstructed under pressure, and he’s still learning how to consistently throw with touch.

But at 6’4″ and 225 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 passer.

Maye has been compared favorably to Justin Herbert, and the tools are there to do that projection justice in the NFL.

Caleb Williams, QB, USC

A Notre Dame performance that brought three first-half interceptions soured many on Williams in 2023. But overall, Williams played incredibly well once again as a third-year QB, 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 maintains 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 6’8″, 315 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 6’8″, 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.

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, most dynamic playmakers in the 2024 NFL Draft. It’s why he cracks our top five, beating out other worthy prospects like Fashanu and Malik Nabers.

Bowers is different, and he’s always been different. Right from the jump, as a true freshman at Georgia, he produced at a dominant clip. In three seasons 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 6’4″ and 240 pounds, Bowers brings great 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 hyper-elite, but he’s also a passable route runner, a versatile blocker, a bird of prey at the catch point, and a steamroller with his contact balance in open space.
