7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft: J.J. McCarthy Successor to Stafford, Rome Odunze Bolsters Jets

With the Super Bowl almost upon us and All-Star bowl games rapidly approaching, who goes where in this 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft?

The NFL Conference Championship matches are set, and both the Shrine and Senior Bowls are just around the corner. NFL Draft season is officially upon us, which means it is time to start firing up mock drafts. With the order largely revealed, let’s dive into this 2024 NFL Draft that goes all seven rounds.

7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft | Round 1

We used the same draft order that’s in our FREE Mock Draft Simulator. There are no compensatory picks in this mock draft, as those have yet to be officially announced.

1) Chicago Bears (From CAR): Caleb Williams, QB, USC

It seems almost certain that Justin Fields is gone in Chicago. It’s time for the Bears to move on and start anew.

Caleb Williams is a natural playmaker with plenty of arm talent and athleticism. With a new offensive staff in the building, Williams gets a chance to shine with players like WR DJ Moore and a revitalized defense around him.

2) Washington Commanders: Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

The Washington Commanders get to kick off a new era with a new owner, general manager, and head coach all in place. They’ll kick it off with a new quarterback.

MORE: 2024 NFL Draft Prospect Watchlist

Drake Maye is eerily similar to Justin Herbert as a quarterback and should be able to take ample advantage of talents like Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson in Washington.

3) New England Patriots: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

New England could take Marvin Harrison Jr. or Brock Bowers here — moves that make sense given their need for playmakers — but I’m going in another direction here with LSU QB Jayden Daniels.

New head coach Jerod Mayo said they were going to take the “best player at the most important position for us,” and that certainly describes Daniels. Daniels is an elite playmaker at quarterback with the arm talent and mobility to create and extend plays — a welcome sight for a Patriots offense that currently has neither.

4) Arizona Cardinals: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Arizona breathes a sigh of relief here. They are determined to build their future with QB Kyler Murray under center, but they need to add more talent around him to start winning.

Marvin Harrison Jr. is one of the best wide receiver prospects in recent memory and would take over the WR1 role in Arizona right away.

5) Los Angeles Chargers: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Justin Herbert throwing to Brock Bowers? Where do I sign? The Chargers can’t go wrong with adding a top-end threat for Herbert to grow alongside.

6) New York Giants: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

With the Giants now out of commission for the top three quarterbacks, this spot is wide open. They are faced with a significant talent exodus this offseason at their skill positions on offense, and they could use a true No. 1 wide receiver.

Pairing Malik Nabers with Darius Slayton, Wan’Dale Robinson, and Jalin Hyatt gives whoever the Giants’ 2024 quarterback is a diverse receiving corps to target.

7) Tennessee Titans: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

If the Titans are fully onboard with Will Levis at QB, their next priority should be to get their offensive line sorted out. Tennessee objectively flunked at left tackle this offseason with the Andre Dillard acquisition. Still, they have an opportunity for a real solution in Joe Alt.

8) Atlanta Falcons: Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

The Falcons have struggled to generate consistent pressure on opposing quarterbacks this season, a stat that has held their unit back from being a great one. Dallas Turner is one of the best pass rushers in this upcoming draft and would be a building block outside for the team to build its pass-rush plan around.

9) Chicago Bears: Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

With a new quarterback, it’s imperative to invest in protecting him up front, something Chicago has struggled to do. Olu Fashanu is one of the best pass-protecting tackles in recent memory and would step right in at left tackle.

10) New York Jets: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

With all the top tackles off the board, the Jets could opt to take one of the next-tier tackles or take the likely best player available in Rome Odunze. They need playmakers on offense and will have to continue to add talent around Aaron Rodgers.

11) Minnesota Vikings: Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

With EDGEs Danielle Hunter, Marcus Davenport, and D.J. Wonnum all slated to hit free agency, the Vikings must make moves to replenish their pass-rush arsenal.

Laiatu Latu slips a bit here, due to his concerning medical history, but his deep repertoire of pass-rush moves and hot motor would make him an excellent addition to this Minnesota defense.

12) Denver Broncos: Byron Murphy II, DT, Texas

The Denver Broncos could go anywhere here, but one thing that has stood out to me on film preparing for this mock has been their defensive line’s inability to generate disruptive plays. Denver is giving up the most yards per rush in the league by a significant margin and needs a difference-maker up front to turn that around.

It seems Byron Murphy II has shot up draft boards this season and is in play to be the first defensive lineman taken. Murphy would boost the Broncos’ defensive line tremendously against the run and help their interior pressure, too.

13) Las Vegas Raiders: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

Thayer Munford has been fine bouncing between both tackle spots, proving his worth as a swing tackle. However, the Raiders should lock up their right tackle spot by taking a  powerful athlete in JC Latham.

14) New Orleans Saints: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

New Orleans could be looking to trade Marshon Lattimore this offseason, given his contract status and recent injuries. It’ll need someone to take over as the team’s top corner.

Terrion Arnold is a bit reckless with his ball skills, but he’s a stud-run defender and feisty corner outside. He is the exact type of cornerback the Saints have loved under Dennis Allen, and he would take the top spot right away.

15) Indianapolis Colts: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

The Colts’ cornerback room is gearing up for plenty of turnover, and they lack adequate talent at the position. Their pass rush has taken a step forward, but the rest of the defense needs playmakers.

Nate Wiggins is an excellent blend of length and quickness who could be an instant boost to that secondary.

16) Seattle Seahawks: Jer’Zhan Newton, DT, Illinois

The Seahawks will likely let Leonard Williams walk in free agency, so they’ll need to replace him with another blue-chip talent on the defensive line.

MORE: 2024 NFL Draft Big Board

Jer’Zhan Newton is the best defensive tackle in the class by a rather comfortable margin, and he would be a difference-maker up front for Seattle to help retool its defensive line.

17) Jacksonville Jaguars: Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU

It’s been hard watching the Jaguars operate offensively this year, as the offensive line has consistently dragged their performance down. Added to the inconsistent receiver play and frustrating play-calling, it’s caused the Jacksonville offense to wildly underperform.

You can pick any position here, but the Jaguars need a reliable wide receiver outside. Brian Thomas Jr. is a height/weight/speed freak at 6’4″, 205 pounds, boasting the explosiveness to match. His combination of athleticism and elite catch rate would be a welcome boost to a flailing offense carried by QB Trevor Lawrence.

18) Cincinnati Bengals: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

Right tackle Jonah Williams is set to be a free agent, and left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. allows the most pressure in the NFL. It’s safe to say that throwing money at the offensive line in free agency hasn’t solved the Bengals’ issues in pass protection.

The team needs a real investment in young talent along their offensive line if they want to keep QB Joe Burrow free of any more injuries. Amarius Mims resembles the Incredible Hulk on the football field and would be a key cog to the line’s success.

19) Los Angeles Rams: J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

The Rams could go any number of ways with this pick, but quarterback makes sense for several reasons. To start, 2024 is the last year Matthew Stafford has any guaranteed money left on his deal. Los Angeles hasn’t hidden its interest in quarterbacks over the last couple of drafts, and it clearly wasn’t thrilled with its backups before a mid-season Carson Wentz signing.

J.J. McCarthy might have declared a year early, but sitting behind Stafford for a year and developing with Sean McVay is a perfect match.

20) Pittsburgh Steelers: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

The Steelers’ cornerback room has been much-maligned this season. While Joey Porter Jr. has shown flashes, the rest of that unit has not, and several players are slated to hit free agency. Kool-Aid McKinstry can slide right in as the team’s top corner.

21) Miami Dolphins: Graham Barton, OL, Duke

The interior of the Dolphins’ offensive line has struggled and will undergo even more turnaround in the offseason. Graham Barton has the flexibility to play anywhere on the offensive line, but in this scenario, he steps in to replace Connor Williams at center. He could also give them a solution at left tackle if Terron Armstead retires.

22) Philadelphia Eagles: Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU

The Eagles have always been proactive about their offensive line, and there have been some discussions around Lane Johnson’s potential retirement. Eagles general manager Howie Roseman has only drafted trench players, wide receivers, and quarterbacks in Round 1 throughout his career.

Suamataia is a freak athlete at 6’6″, 325 pounds, and he has some high-level tape as a run-blocker and in pass protection despite switching from right to left tackle this season.

23) Houston Texans (From CLE): Cooper DeJean, CB, Iowa

With C.J. Stroud playing at this level, it’s important to ensure that the defense takes strides to match his offensive output so it doesn’t all fall on his shoulders. The Texans have three corners — who have all played a significant number of snaps this year — hitting free agency.

Cooper DeJean has the talent to play cornerback or safety for Houston and is an excellent run defender.

24) Dallas Cowboys: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

Tyron Smith has played like an All-Pro this season and should be extended. However, it’s getting closer to Dallas having to invest in his long-term replacement. I do not believe that should be Tyler Smith because his best long-term outlook is at left guard.

MORE: Top Offensive Tackles in the 2024 NFL Draft

Tyler Guyton has the tools to play on either side of the offensive line. Whether Smith is extended or not, this would be a wise investment, given his recent lack of durability. He also adds insurance at right tackle if Terrence Steele continues to play at his current level.

25) Green Bay Packers: Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

The Packers’ defense has been nothing short of horrible this season. Eric Stokes hasn’t delivered, and Jaire Alexander could be on the way out, too, leaving a huge hole at corner for Green Bay. Regardless of whether Alexander stays or not, they need another playmaker in the secondary.

Quinyon Mitchell is an elite athlete who thrives in man coverage and can be the solution to the Packers’ woes, with or without Alexander.

26) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

The Buccaneers have struggled to generate pressure on opposing quarterbacks all season and need some help on that side of the ball. They could use a boost to their edge rushers if they want to keep winning the NFC South.

Jared Verse is one of the best in the class, boasting a superb combination of explosiveness and power.

27) Arizona Cardinals (From HOU): Troy Fautanu, OL, Washington

Arizona has plenty of options, but after losing out on so many defensive prospects in between picks, they turn back to the offense to keep building around Murray.

Troy Fautanu is a ready-made guard and is as clean a guard prospect as I can recall. He should start right away at guard and can play tackle in a pinch, depending on their plan with Paris Johnson and D.J. Humphries.

28) Buffalo Bills: Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

We’ve all seen the woes of the Bills’ wide receiver corps. They desperately need more playmakers around Josh Allen, especially given the inevitable discussion surrounding Stefon Diggs’ contract.

Keon Coleman is a true “X” style receiver who can be significantly more consistent than Gabe Davis as the WR2. Coleman gives Buffalo a bonafide deep threat and red-zone weapon.

29) Kansas City Chiefs: Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

The fact that Patrick Mahomes is playing in another AFC Championship game with this level of talent around him is remarkable but not sustainable. The Chiefs should repeatedly add talent to their wide receiver room in the offseason.

Troy Franklin isn’t the most polished wide receiver out there, but it’s hard to deny his speed. He could be the weapon the Chiefs were hoping Mecole Hardman or Marquez Valdes-Scantling would be.

30) Detroit Lions: Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

The Lions’ pass rush has been lackluster at best this season and could use a boost with a dynamic pass rusher next to Aidan Hutchinson. Chop Robinson is an excellent pass rusher who would add a refreshing shot of explosiveness to the unit.

31) San Francisco 49ers: Taliese Fuaga, OL, Oregon State

It’s about time the Colton McKivitz experiment at right tackle ended for the 49ers. Taliese Fuaga is arguably the best run blocker in this class and would fit right in with Shanahan’s zone-heavy offense.

32) Baltimore Ravens: Patrick Paul, OT, Houston

Left tackle Ronnie Stanley has struggled to return from injury and is running out of guaranteed money on his extension.

Baltimore is usually more proactive with its future needs than most, so adding a talented developmental option like Patrick Paul to replace Stanley is a smart investment.

Round 2

2024 NFL mock draft

33) Carolina Panthers: Jackson Powers-Johnson, OC, Oregon

The Panthers’ offensive line has been one of the worst in the NFL this season, a fact that has to change if they want Bryce Young to pan out. Jackson Powers-Johnson can step right in and be a Pro Bowl-caliber center to boost Carolina’s pass protection.

34) New England Patriots: Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

New England finds a quarterback and turns to find him a playmaker. Ja’Lynn Polk has the reliable skill set they were hoping JuJu Smith-Schuster would bring. He is a better athlete than Smith-Schuster and is a separator who can win at all three levels.

35) Arizona Cardinals: Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington

The Cardinals have been effective at generating sacks, but they’ve struggled to bring consistent pressure. They’ve also struggled with runs outside and keeping the edges secured.

Bralen Trice is a powerful, physical pass rusher with an incredibly hot motor on all reps. He would draw plenty of attention away from Arizona’s other pass rushers.

36) Washington Commanders: Jordan Morgan, OL, Arizona

If the Commanders want the Drake Maye pick to work out, they have to invest in their offensive line to keep him clean.

Washington will have to figure out if they want him at tackle or guard, but Jordan Morgan can be a Pro Bowl-caliber player and give them a building block up front.

37) Los Angeles Chargers: Tyler Nubin, S, Minnesota

The Chargers could use help at every level of the defense, but they simply can’t win with a safety room that produced as many coverage busts as this season.

MORE: Top Safeties in the 2024 NFL Draft

Tyler Nubin is a difference-maker in coverage thanks to excellent ball skills and awareness in space. He and Derwin James would complement each other well.

38) Tennessee Titans: Chris Braswell, EDGE, Alabama

Chris Braswell is a freak athlete, placing high on Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List with his explosiveness. He boasts excellent technique, physicality, and power in his game. I have compared him to Everson Griffen, and he should be drafted fairly early.

39) New York Giants: Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

The Giants cannot go into next season without having something different in their quarterback room. Bo Nix would be a good fit in Daboll’s offense and has significantly better tools than the rest of their quarterbacks.

40) Washington Commanders (From CHI): Kamari Lassiter, CB, Georgia

Washington has fielded the worst passing defense in the NFL this year, and its corner room has been the biggest culprit. To make matters worse, Kendall Fuller is a pending free agent in the offseason. The Commanders should invest early and often into that unit by nabbing Kamari Lassiter.

41) Green Bay Packers (From NYJ): T’Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas

Green Bay opts to continue investing in its defense here. Stopping the run and loading up on the beef in the trenches is critical for the Packers to turn their defensive woes around after adding two smaller, hybrid defensive linemen last year.

T’Vondre Sweat had a tremendous 2023 season, winning the Outland Trophy as the best interior lineman. He provides a mammoth presence (literally) as a 6’4″, 340-pound pass rusher and run stuffer.

42) Minnesota Vikings: Kalen King, CB, Penn State

Minnesota’s corner room has been largely inconsistent outside of Byron Murphy, and it’s played a big part in the team’s defensive regression as the season continued. It’s time to fix that.

Kalen King is an awesome athlete who can thrive in man coverage. His aggressiveness can get the better of him sometimes, but he is the kind of corner the Vikings’ defense needs.

43) Atlanta Falcons: Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

Atlanta’s quarterback room is still a question mark, but regardless of who is under center, the Falcons can’t roll into 2024 with Drake London and a band of misfits at wide receiver.

Atlanta has invested heavily in the skill positions over the last few years and should continue to do so with Adonai Mitchell.

44) Las Vegas Raiders: Cooper Beebe, G, Kansas State

The Raiders double down on fixing the offensive line in their rebuild here. Cooper Beebe is a physical tone-setter of a blocker who could be a mainstay on their offensive line and has the positional flexibility to play at several spots.

45) New Orleans Saints (From DEN): Michael Pratt, QB, Tulane

The Saints are completely shifting systems, opting to move to more of a Shanahan-esque system. While they are aiming to maximize Derek Carr, the team should also be thinking about their future at quarterback, as they can get out of Carr’s contract following the 2024 season.

Michael Pratt has all the tools and intangibles to succeed in that style of offense, playing with good timing, accuracy, and decision-making. Being a local kid makes it an even better fit to help turn the New Orleans offense around.

46) Indianapolis Colts: Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

The Colts could use just one more piece to help their wide receiver room to take that next step. That piece is a speedster who brings ability both vertically and after the catch. Xavier Legette is a superb field-stretching presence who can add another dynamic target for Anthony Richardson’s arsenal.

47) New York Giants (From SEA): T.J. Tampa, CB, Iowa State

The Giants have gotten encouraging play out of Deonte Banks at one corner spot, but the rest of their corner room hasn’t played up to that level. T.J. Tampa is an excellent zone corner with great instincts and ball skills.

48) Jacksonville Jaguars: Ennis Rakestraw Jr., CB, Missouri

Jacksonville must address their long-term depth at cornerback. Darious Williams and Tyson Campbell are in the last year of their respective deals. The Jaguars have to figure out how to replace them to continue to bolster the team’s secondary talent.

Ennis Rakestraw Jr. brings the physicality that new defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen covets out of his cornerbacks.

49) Cincinnati Bengals: Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas

The Bengals have every tight end on the roster set to hit free agency, which seems rather remarkable when written out. They will need to restock this room in the offseason.

Ja’Tavion Sanders can unlock a new element of their offense. Sanders is a tremendous athlete who can do damage after the catch. His enormous catch radius at 6’4″ makes him quarterback-friendly, too.

50) Philadelphia Eagles (From NO): Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

The Eagles haven’t figured out their WR3 spot yet, and Julio Jones, Olamide Zacchaeus, and Quez Watkins are all slated to hit free agency.

The Georgia to Philadelphia pipeline has been pretty strong recently, so we’ll stick with that theme. Ladd McConkey is a shifty route runner with plenty of nuance to his game.

51) Pittsburgh Steelers: Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

It seems pretty obvious the Steelers don’t feel comfortable with Kenny Pickett or Mason Rudolph as their quarterback of the future.

Michael Penix Jr.‘s draft stock varies from scout to scout, but I kept running out of reasons for him not landing with the Steelers. Penix adds a different element to the Steelers’ quarterback room with his downfield ability and pocket management.

52) Los Angeles Rams: Zach Frazier, OC, West Virginia

The Rams’ offensive line took a huge step forward in 2023, bolstered by the play of guards Steve Avila and Kevin Dotson. With the left tackle options depleted, the Rams turn to replacing free agent center Coleman Shelton with Zach Frazier.

Frazier is a smart center with great movement skills and powerful hands. The Rams infamously passed up on Creed Humphrey years ago but don’t pass on a center here to maximize Stafford’s potential last season with the team.

53) Philadelphia Eagles: Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan

With the likely departure of Fletcher Cox in the offseason, Philadelphia needs to add more pieces to help fill in that void.

Kris Jenkins, an athletic powerhouse, made his way onto Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List for his rare athleticism for his size. The Eagles add more to a defensive line that has struggled to stop the run in recent years.

54) Cleveland Browns: Tez Walker, WR, North Carolina

It has been a pretty common trend to mock a wide receiver to the Browns over the last couple of seasons, and that need hasn’t changed yet. Amari Cooper could be off the team next year, given his $20M cap hit with no more guaranteed money causing hesitation. Cedric Tillman and Elijah Moore have shown flashes, but the room still needs more talent added to it.

Tez Walker is an excellent deep threat, with effortless acceleration and good ball tracking.

55) Miami Dolphins: Kamren Kinchens, S, Miami (FL)

Miami’s defense has been better this season but could still use a boost to its secondary. With the Dolphins’ safety room likely to see DeShon Elliott and Brandon Jones exit, Kamren Kinchens can start immediately as a split-fielder and give them a playmaker with real ball skills.

56) Dallas Cowboys: Junior Colson, LB, Michigan

Dallas’ linebacker room woes have been well-documented, and the Packers certainly took advantage of it in the playoffs. The Cowboys must stock up on additions to the spine of their defense, and Junior Colson fits that to a tee.

MORE: Top Linebackers in the 2024 NFL Draft

Colson is likely the first linebacker off the board after a stellar run in the College Football Playoff. A physical defender who is equally as comfortable in coverage as he is flying downhill in pursuit, he would be a leader in the linebacker room for Dallas and let the defense match personnel better against heavier sets.

57) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dominick Puni, G, Kansas

Robert Hainsey likely takes over at center following Ryan Jensen’s impending retirement, but left guard Matt Feiler is a pending free agent.

Dominick Puni is a college left tackle but will probably slide over to guard in the NFL. His power and mentality are traits that Tampa has targeted over the years with their offensive linemen.

58) Green Bay Packers: Javon Bullard, S, Georgia

Doubling down on the secondary here early for the Packers feels like a wise investment, given their issues against the pass. Green Bay adds a versatile defensive back in Javon Bullard, who can start Day 1 in that secondary.

59) Houston Texans: Jaden Hicks, S, Washington State

All but two safeties (Jalen Pitre and Jimmie Ward) are pending free agents in Houston. While Pitre is a building block for the secondary, Ward will be 33 next season and will have just one year on his deal. Hicks has the versatility to fill any role necessary, giving DeMeco Ryans another weapon to gameplan with.

60) Buffalo Bills: Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson

The Bills have five(!) defensive tackles set to hit free agency, and all five have played over 100 snaps this season, leaving a vacuum in the coming months. Even if one or two return next to Ed Oliver, the Bills would be wise to add a long-term solution here in the form of Ruke Orhorhoro.

61) Kansas City Chiefs: Caelen Carson, CB, Wake Forest

There’s a possibility that L’Jarius Sneed departs in free agency, but even if he returns, Kansas City should continue to add to that room to boost its depth. Caelen Carson is a physical and smooth cornerback who can work on an island in man coverage against any style of receiver.

62) Detroit Lions: Jalen McMillan, WR, Washington

A lot of attention has been drawn to Detroit’s defense for needs, and deservedly so, but they can add more to their offense this offseason as well — especially with Josh Reynolds being a pending free agent.

Jalen McMillan is a smooth route runner with big-play potential, displaying great ball tracking and hands at all three levels of the field. He could add another threat to the Lions’ already potent offense.

63) San Francisco 49ers: McKinley Jackson, DT, Texas A&M

If I told you the 49ers had one of the worst run-stuffing tallies of the season, would you believe me? Per Sports Info Solutions, only the Eagles and Bengals had fewer.

With Javon Kinlaw, Kevin Givens, and newly-signed Sebastian Joseph-Day all pending free agents, it’s high time the 49ers invested in their interior in the draft. McKinley Jackson would be a good start.

64) Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Dorlus, EDGE, Oregon

Brandon Dorlus is a versatile defensive lineman with a 290-pound frame. He has the length to handle playing 5-tech but can also move inside and play 3-tech.

Dorlus is also a disruptive pass rusher on the interior, something the Ravens could use if Justin Madubuike walks in free agency.

Round 3

2024 NFL mock draft

65) Carolina Panthers: Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

After eschewing a wide receiver at the top of the second round, the Panthers opt to add one here. Xavier Worthy would give Carolina a star playmaker who adds a different element of athleticism from anyone else on the roster.

66) Arizona Cardinals: Darius Robinson, DL, Missouri

The interior of Arizona’s defensive line needs a difference maker to help shore up their defense. Robinson is more of a 5-tech but has the athleticism to play all over the defensive line. The Cardinals need a boost up front on the defensive line in both the run game and in getting after the quarterback, and Darius Robinson gives them both.

67) Washington Commanders: Adisa Isaac, EDGE, Penn State

Washington’s pass rush plummeted after dealing Chase Young and Montez Sweat. The Commanders do not have the outside threats to sustain a legitimate pass rush. Thus, they add Adisa Isaac, who boasts an excellent combination of explosiveness and length.

68) New England Patriots: Jonah Elliss, EDGE, Utah

Josh Uche is set to be a free agent, and Matt Judon is coming off of a torn bicep and will be a free agent in 2025.

New England’s run defense has been stellar this year, but its pass rush hasn’t quite kept pace. Jonah Elliss isn’t the most flexible pass rusher out there, but he is physical and a technician, playing New England’s brand of football.

69) Los Angeles Chargers: Edgerrin Cooper, LB, Texas A&M

Pick a spot on the Chargers’ defense, and there’s a case it could be upgraded in the offseason. With the safety spot addressed earlier, the Chargers finally find a linebacker to help the middle of their defense in Edgerrin Cooper.

70) New York Giants: D.J. James, CB, Auburn

The Giants have plenty of questions in their corner room, even after drafting one in Round 2. D.J. James has a wire-thin frame, but his competitiveness and physicality belie his build.

71) Arizona Cardinals (From TEN): Jeremiah Trotter Jr., LB, Clemson

Arizona needs to add real playmaking to its linebacker group because it is a contender for the worst unit in the NFL. Jeremiah Trotter Jr is a do-it-all linebacker capable of taking over the MIKE duties for Arizona and giving them a jolt up front.

72) New York Jets: Malachi Corley, WR, Western Kentucky

New York continues to add playmakers around Aaron Rodgers to help repair arguably the worst offense in the NFL.

Malachi Corley can be a top-caliber playmaker, as he is capable of generating easy yards for a team after the catch. The Jets were 31st in the NFL in YAC last season, something that needs to change moving forward.

73) Detroit Lions (From MIN): Cam Hart, CB, Notre Dame

The Lions need plenty of investment into their cornerback room, with five players from a lackluster group entering free agency. Cam Hart is a long, smooth mover at corner who can start early on.

74) Atlanta Falcons: Max Melton, CB, Rutgers

Atlanta’s corners outside of A.J. Terrell have been a mixed bag. A new coaching staff likely starts anew in this room. A fluid, smart corner, Melton can contribute right away opposite of Terrell.

75) Chicago Bears: Isaiah Adams, G, Illinois

Chicago will revamp the interior of their offensive line this offseason. Center Lucas Patrick is a free agent, and the team will likely move on from left guard Cody Whitehair, opening up two spots on the inside.

MORE: Top Interior Offensive Linemen in the 2024 NFL Draft

Adding a versatile offensive lineman in Isaiah Adams isn’t a bad investment. Adams has good quickness for his size, and he played guard and tackle in his career.

76) Denver Broncos: Kiran Amegadjie, OT, Yale

Left tackle Garett Bolles has just one year left on his contract, and the Broncos might be gearing up for a cap rebuild soon. Kiran Amegadjie has the size and tools to thrive at left tackle, and scouts rave about his character. He can sit behind Bolles for a season and give the Broncos an in-house replacement.

77) Las Vegas Raiders: Khyree Jackson, CB, Oregon

The Raiders had a wildly successful defensive effort in 2023, and they should continue to boost that side of the ball if they want to sustain that. Las Vegas could have over a thousand vacated snaps outside if Amik Robertson joins Marcus Peters in free agency. Jack Jones stepped up, but they should fill the spot next to him to take that next step forward.

78) Seattle Seahawks: Cole Bishop, S, Utah

Seattle’s safety play outside of Quandre Diggs has been a problem, and the team is almost certainly moving on from Jamal Adams. They’ll need another strong safety archetype they can line up in the slot, split-field, or in the box.

79) Atlanta Falcons (From JAX): Jaylan Ford, LB, Texas

With a new defensive system in place, the Falcons have to continue to take steps to retool their defense to continue the positive steps they took forward in 2023. One area the team could use a boost in is at linebacker. Ford is a long, smart linebacker who was a key cog for Texas’ defense this year during their playoff run.

80) Cincinnati Bengals: Jacob Cowing, WR, Arizona

It’s contract decision time for the Bengals with Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins. While they could retain one, it seems improbable for both to return.

Jacob Cowing is a natural playmaker out of the slot with superb explosiveness and speed. Cowing will draw plenty of Tank Dell comparisons throughout the draft process, and he should deliver a similar impact as a rookie.

81) Seattle Seahawks (From NO): Payton Wilson, LB, NC State

Veteran LB Bobby Wagner’s accolades last matched his play a few years ago, and he is set to be a free agent. Seattle likely keeps Jordyn Brooks, leaving the LB spot next to him open.

Payton Wilson’s age and medical history will likely see him slip in the draft, but his tape is reflective of a top-flight linebacker. Wilson can do it all, capable of matching receivers and dropping vertically as well as taking on blocks and making plays in the run game.

82) Indianapolis Colts: Calen Bullock, S, USC

The Colts need some insurance at their safety spot with Julian Blackmon’s pending free agency. Indianapolis had too many busts from the safety spot this season and needs to add a new style of defensive back to that room.

Calen Bullock is a rangy ballhawk who would add a playmaking element their safety room sorely needs.

83) Los Angeles Rams: Mohamed Kamara, EDGE, Colorado State

The Rams must continue to add to their pass rush depth and get faster across their front seven this season.

While Kamara isn’t a prototypical size specimen at 6’1″, 250 pounds, the Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year boasts great burst and bend to turn the corner. His 63 pressures and 14 sacks ranked fourth in the nation this season.

84) Pittsburgh Steelers: Cedric Gray, LB, North Carolina

The less said about the Steelers’ linebacker room this season, the better. Pittsburgh needs a significant boost there for 2024.

Cedric Gray is a high-energy linebacker prospect with superb sideline-to-sideline range and pursuit ability.

85) Cleveland Browns: Michael Hall Jr., DT, Ohio State

The Browns could lose multiple players on their defensive line this offseason. Even if they bring one or two back, the unit could use more depth. Michael Hall Jr. is quick and powerful with a tremendous motor that would add another talented pass rusher to the team’s interior.

86) Houston Texans (From PHI): Roger Rosengarten, OT, Washington

The Texans will have to keep Stroud protected moving forward if they want to ensure his career arc is pointed upwards. Right tackle George Fant is set to hit free agency.

Roger Rosengarten is a tad underrated on that Washington offensive line, but he is a clean, strong right tackle prospect who could lock down the job.

87) Dallas Cowboys: Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas

With all the contract decisions facing the Cowboys this offseason, it doesn’t seem likely Tony Pollard will be brought back. They’ll have to replace him in the offseason to help keep the offense moving.

88) Green Bay Packers: Trey Benson, RB, Florida State

AJ Dillon never met expectations, and Aaron Jones is almost 30 years old with one year left on his deal. Trey Benson plays with a wonderful blend of burst and contact balance, making him one of the best running backs in this draft class.

89) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Beau Brade, S, Maryland

Both Antoine Winfield Jr. and Ryan Neal are slated to hit free agency. While it feels pretty likely that Winfield will be re-signed, the Buccaneers have virtually nothing at their other safety spot. Beau Brade is a physical, quick-trigger safety who can make plays deep and easily trigger downhill to fill against the run.

90) Arizona Cardinals (From HOU): Blake Fisher, OT, Notre Dame

I’m projecting a bit here, but with Humphries’ time in Arizona seemingly over, it makes sense for the Cardinals to switch Paris Johnson Jr. back over to left tackle to replace him, then pair the second-year tackle with guard Troy Fautanu, thus leaving the right tackle spot open.

Fisher’s name will be a quick riser up draft boards this season, with his movement skills and obvious technical polish showing out at Notre Dame. He has the tools to be a long-term right tackle in the NFL.

91) Green Bay Packers (From BUF): Kitan Oladapo, S, Oregon State

The Packers will need to continue to revamp the safety room this offseason to turn their defense around.

Oladapo is a tone-setting safety in the run game, but also has great ball skills and can match up with slot receivers and tight ends.

92) Kansas City Chiefs: Leonard Taylor, DT, Miami (FL)

Superstar Chris Jones’s future in Kansas City is set, but the rest of its defensive line needs a significant boost in talent. Leonard Taylor III has an explosive first step and can collapse the pocket with ease.

93) Detroit Lions: Tyler Davis, DT, Clemson

Detroit’s last third-rounder, Brodric Martin, hasn’t seen the field this season. The Lions need another player to bring in on their interior next to Alim McNeill, who can play both the run and pass.

Tyler Davis has gone underrated with Clemson’s down season in 2023, but he’s just as disruptive as ever. He can be a plug-and-play defensive tackle for Detroit.

94) San Francisco 49ers: Austin Booker, EDGE, Kansas

Even if the 49ers retain Young, they have shown a willingness to bolster their pass rush. They haven’t gotten enough out of the rest of their defensive line to pass up on a quality prospect early.

Austin Booker has been a fast riser this season, showcasing great explosiveness and power. Booker can be an every-down edge rusher at the next level, and his name will start shooting up draft boards soon.

95) Baltimore Ravens: Josh Newton, CB, TCU

With four corners set to hit free agency, it’s wise for Baltimore to add more talent to this room to stay atop the AFC.

Josh Newton is smaller — close to 5’10” and 190 pounds — but he is incredibly competitive with excellent awareness in coverage. He has a knack for staying in phase and fighting to make a play on the ball.
