7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft: Justin Fields Traded to the Raiders, Kirk Cousins a Falcon, Patriots Get Jayden Daniels

With the NFL Draft order almost finalized and all-star games in the rearview mirror, who does your team take in the latest 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft?

The NFL Draft is quickly approaching, and as the world gets ready to watch the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers do battle at Super Bowl 58, 30 other fanbases have already started to look at what their team can do next. This 7-round 2024 NFL Mock Draft is here to help those millions of fans project into the future and find reasons to get excited for next season.

Using the PFN Mock Draft Simulator, who goes later than expected, and who rises in this 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft?

Pre-2024 NFL Mock Draft QB Movement

ESPN’s Adam Schefter has gone on record to say that he believes the Chicago Bears are going to draft Caleb Williams. This means that they will likely need to trade Justin Fields. In this 7-round NFL Mock Draft, that is exactly what they do.

The team that the Bears trade Fields to is the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders ended the season with Aidan O’Connell as their starting QB, and while O’Connell had his ups and downs, it is difficult to trust him with the future in Las Vegas.

In return for Fields, the Bears get two Day 2 picks and a fifth-rounder. That feels like a realistic compensation package for the QB.

  • Bears receive the 44th and 146th picks, plus a 2025 third-round pick
  • Raiders receive Justin Fields

Also, in this mock draft, the Atlanta Falcons have signed Kirk Cousins in free agency, with the Minnesota Vikings electing not to re-sign the veteran QB. With rumors that the Vikings are looking to select a QB in the 2024 NFL Draft, we run with that speculation.

7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft | Round 1

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

The Bears reset the QB clock and traded Fields to the Raiders. In doing so, they get younger and cheaper. Plus, Caleb Williams can be seen as an upgrade. With comparisons to Patrick Mahomes and Kyler Murray, his off-schedule play and unreal creation skills give him exceptional upside at the next level.

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

The Commanders must leave the draft with an answer at the QB position. Luckily, there is a pretty good option sitting at No. 2 overall. Drake Maye has developed year after year, and his combination of arm strength, decision-making, and underappreciated athleticism makes him a quality option in the capital.

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

The Patriots have moved on from Bill Belichick, but the biggest problem on their roster remains the quarterback. Jayden Daniels has special creation capacity and all the explosive traits necessary to be a high draft pick. An evasive runner with a powerful arm, Daniels fits the mold of an early-round QB.

MORE: 2024 NFL Draft Prospect Watchlist

Whoever the third QB is should become a Patriot. For New England, it just so happens to be the reigning Heisman Trophy winner.

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

The feeling right now is that this is how the first four picks will go. Three QBs and an elite blue-chip receiver who will automatically become the go-to weapon for QB Kyler Murray. Marvin Harrison Jr. just does everything right. He is special in so many ways that picking holes in his game is impossible.

5) Los Angeles Chargers: Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State

It is a toss-up for the Chargers — a tackle or a receiver. Both can be correct, but with Quentin Johnston being drafted in the first round in the 2023 NFL Draft, we have opted to protect Justin Herbert here.

Olu Fashanu is a polished prospect with great strength, movement, and athletic ability. He would be a slam-dunk pick at No. 5 overall, with Los Angeles needing to rework the protection of their QB. Rashawn Slater and Fashanu as bookend tackles is a pretty insane combination.

6) New York Giants: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

The Giants have needed a true WR1 for years now, without really throwing major assets at fixing the problem. That changes in 2024, with them drafting one of the most exciting receivers available.

Rome Odunze is a versatile weapon who is a master at body control. His flexibility and strong hands make him an immediate impact receiver in the Big Apple.

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

It appears right now that the Titans are one of the easier teams to pick for in the first round in any mock draft. They simply have to get better on the offensive line, and by drafting seventh overall, there should be one of the top two offensive tackles available.

MORE: 2024 NFL Draft Big Board

Joe Alt is in the conversation for OT1, and his combination of size, speed, and strength makes him a potential franchise LT for Tennessee.

8) Atlanta Falcons: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

In this scenario, Kirk Cousins has joined the Falcons in free agency. It frees up Atlanta to attack a positional need and one of the top players remaining. Outside of Drake London, the Falcons have nothing to write home about at receiver. Adding Malik Nabers would make this offense even more explosive and one of the most exciting to watch in the NFL.

9) Chicago Bears: Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

With the Bears already taking their future in Williams, they now turn their attention to the defense with their second top-10 pick. This is the right range for the first edge player to come off the board, and Dallas Turner would add a tremendous boost to the Bears’ defensive front. An insane athlete at 6’4” and 240 pounds, he is only going to get better.

10) New York Jets: Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

Aaron Rodgers has to stay healthy, and he has to stay upright if the Jets are to compete in their Super Bowl window.

The offensive line will need retooling with Mekhi Becton seemingly out of the building. Taliese Fuaga has played right tackle at college but could switch to left tackle if needed. Otherwise, you have a ready-made pairing in Alijah Vera-Tucker and Fuaga.

11) Minnesota Vikings: Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

With Cousins leaving in free agency, the Vikings must find their future at the position. They could be a candidate to trade up if anyone at the top is willing to negotiate. However, in this mock, they end up with Bo Nix.

Fans should prepare for Nix to be drafted much higher than many realize. At Oregon, he has been one of the top QBs in college football over the last two years and has the traits and experience that should allow him to slot straight in at the next level.

12) Denver Broncos: Cooper DeJean, CB, Iowa

With Patrick Surtain II already in Denver, the Broncos have their CB1. But what an opportunity this would be for the franchise.

Cooper DeJean is an absolute ball hawk, and Denver can move him around while knowing they have Surtain to lock down one side of the field. That would make a scary proposition for anyone facing this secondary.

13) Las Vegas Raiders: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

As already explained, the Raiders made a pre-draft move for Fields in this mock draft scenario. It means they can focus on fixing another immediate problem in Las Vegas during the NFL Draft.

Terrion Arnold is a supremely twitchy athlete. His reaction, speed, and fluidity make him one of the easiest movers in this class, and he will provide the Raiders with a long-term answer at the cornerback position.

14) New Orleans Saints: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

The Saints ranked 28th in the NFL in sacks in 2023. Something needs to change up front if New Orleans is to improve in 2024.

Jared Verse has a fantastic speed-to-power conversion that makes him explosive off the snap while retaining the speed and strength to beat offensive linemen in many different ways.

15) Indianapolis Colts: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Brock Bowers is one of the top prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft, but it isn’t easy to find him a home early on. But if he’s available at 15, the Colts should sprint the card in.

Bowers would be an all-time weapon for Anthony Richardson. He poses a threat to all three levels, separates well, and has YAC ability that will make him an easy target for the young QB.

16) Seattle Seahawks: J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Geno Smith’s contract has been built to allow the Seahawks to get out of it when they’re ready. It’s perfectly acceptable for Seattle to go into the 2024 season with Smith as their QB, but at some point, they will need to look at getting their future at the position.

MORE: Top QBs in the 2024 NFL Draft

J.J. McCarthy is a polarizing prospect, but there is no doubt that he is talented. This scenario allows him to sit behind Smith for at least a year while he develops.

17) Jacksonville Jaguars: Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

The Jaguars need to improve their offensive line, especially at center. Luke Fortner has yet to work out, but they have a chance to add a great one in Jackson Powers-Johnson.

Powers-Johnson’s versatility, raw power, and mobility make him a perfect option in Jacksonville. With his mauler mindset, low pad level, and dense frame at 6’3” and 320 pounds, he can instantly improve the Jaguars’s offensive line.

18) Cincinnati Bengals: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

The right tackle spot has been a position of speculation for seasons now. They will have to address it sooner rather than later. The tackle class in the 2024 NFL Draft is strong and deep, with plenty of options to improve the Bengals’ offensive line.

JC Latham will slot straight in at RT with plenty of room to develop. At 6’6” and 360 pounds, Latham has a thick, dense build with explosive movement and an aggressive mentality.

19) Los Angeles Rams: Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

This is the first time the Rams have had a first-round pick since they drafted Jared Goff first overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Rams succeeded in adding talent on the defensive line in the 2023 NFL Draft, with Kobie Turner and Bryron Young being key figures in LA. Chop Robinson may not be the most polished of contributors right now, but he will test like a freak athlete, seeing him go higher than expected.

20) Pittsburgh Steelers: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

Cornerback is the top need to be addressed in Pittsburgh this offseason. Levi Wallace is a projected free agent, and Patrick Peterson could also be on the move.

Nate Wiggins, at 6’2” and 185 pounds, is one of the top corners in the 2024 NFL Draft, and his length makes him a disruptive presence in the secondary. His fluidity, athleticism, and route recognition will allow him to assume the CB1 role in Pittsburgh.

21) Miami Dolphins: Troy Fautanu, OL, Washington

Once again, Miami enters the offseason needing to find answers on the offensive line.

MORE: Top iOL in the 2024 NFL Draft

A tackle at Washington, Troy Fautanu is projected as a guard at the next level. But his versatility to play across the line will be useful for Miami, who will need to look at upgrading multiple offensive-line positions.

22) Philadelphia Eagles: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

This is just what the Eagles do. They address the trenches in the first round.

Amarius Mims is a right tackle, and with Lane Johnson not getting any younger, this is a good opportunity to find his replacement in a young, developmental prospect in Amarius Mims.

At 6’7” and 340 pounds, Mims is a ball of clay for Philidelphia to mold. His size, speed, and strength give him an impressive set of dynamic skills to develop.

23) Houston Texans (From CLE): Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

Laiatu Latu has all the tools to be a successful pass rusher in the NFL. However, injuries may prevent him from being drafted early in the first round. The Texans found one future edge in Will Anderson last year. Pairing him with Latu is a scary proposition as they continue to build in Houston.

24) Dallas Cowboys: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

With Stephon Gilmore’s contract up this offseason, cornerback will be a position of need for Dallas in 2024. Trevon Diggs and Da’Ron Bland have shown they can produce, but they need another true outside lockdown corner.

Kool-Aid McKinstry is a technician with great length and a high football IQ. His strong awareness and instincts would go down well with the Cowboys.

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

The Packers have serious issues that need addressing in the secondary. With further speculation over the future of Jaire Alexander, those problems have the potential to escalate.

With eye-popping production in college, Quinyon Mitchell offers elite speed and explosive movement. Not only does Mitchell have absurd acceleration, but he also has enough physicality and body strength to nullify receivers at the catch point.

26) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington

The Bucs need to continue to add talent on the defensive line. Calijah Kancey looked great, and Yaya Diaby played well above expectations in 2023. However, Joe Tryon-Shoyinka hasn’t panned out, and Shaq Barrett is entering the last year of his contract.

Bralen Trice is an absolute wrecking ball and is a pure disruptor. He has an overwhelming power profile, and his active hands give him great production at the college level. Trice plays with high effort, which all coaches will fall in love with.

27) Arizona Cardinals (From HOU): Jer’Zhan Newton, DT, Illinois

The Cardinals just need to add good players, regardless of position. The slated starters in 2024 at defensive tackle are Roy Lopez and Dante Stills. While both have performed admirably in 2023, they aren’t stopping you from adding an explosive talent like Jer’Zhan Newton.

Newton plays with his hair on fire, and his ability to rush the passer through the middle strikes fear into offensive linemen. His never-say-die attitude, along with his speed, strength, and pass-rush arsenal, will make Newton a fan favorite in Arizona.

28) Buffalo Bills: Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU

The Bills are potentially about to be caught short at the receiver position. Gabe Davis is about to hit free agency, and the future of Stefon Diggs is in doubt. While the big three receiver prospects may be long gone, this WR class offers talent and depth.

MORE: Top WRs in the 2024 NFL Draft

Brian Thomas Jr. has been overshadowed by his LSU running partner, but he is a first-round talent. At 6’4” and 205 pounds, he boasts an impressive frame. But his explosive speed is what sets him apart. He can change direction instantly while having the long speed to stretch the field.

29) Detroit Lions: T.J. Tampa, CB, Iowa State

The Lions need corner help. While they have had players contribute, they still don’t have ‘that’ guy in the room. Iowa State Cyclones cornerback T.J. Tampa does everything well, and his quick, aggressive, violent mindset will excite fans in Motor City.

30) Baltimore Ravens: Byron Murphy II, DT, Texas

The Ravens just take good players in the draft. They are a franchise that finds value across the board, and Bryron Murphy II is highly thought of.

Justin Madubuike has been terrific in 2023, but there’s still room to add an all-round threat to the interior defensive line. A big-time athlete who has speed, strength, and production, Murphy would be a great fit in Baltimore.

31) Kansas City Chiefs: Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

The receiver room has failed to impress in 2023 for the Chiefs, with KC leading the league in drops despite their playoff run. Rashee Rice has done well in his rookie year, but the Chiefs have just needed that bit extra from its WRs that they haven’t been able to get.

Xavier Legette‘s special athleticism will see him rocket up boards once the combine comes around and we get testing numbers. His speed and power profile are overwhelming, and he could shine as a boundary receiver in Kansas City.

32) San Francisco 49ers: Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

At some point, the 49ers must look for a succession plan at the tackle positions. In a deep tackle class, the time to do that is now.

MORE INSIGHT: PFN’s Full Super Bowl 58 Coverage

Jordan Morgan fits great with the Kyle Shanahan scheme, and his mobility and power create opportunities in the run game. He also has the versatility to play guard before kicking back out to tackle in the future.

Round 2

7-round 2024 nfl mock draft

33) Carolina Panthers: Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

The Panthers cannot go into the 2024 season with Adam Thielen as their WR1. They have already wasted year one with Bryce Young, they need to build around him to truly understand if he has what it takes to make it in the NFL.

Keon Coleman has all the measurables and production to be the WR1 in Carolina. His catch radius and range mean he can bail a QB out and create separation with fluid movement and overwhelming physicality.

34) New England Patriots: Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

The Patriots have found their QB, they now need to find him a weapon. AD Mitchell has impressive size and length with next-level speed.

Mitchell is shifty in his routes, and his powerful strides create separation. He’s lightning-quick in everything he does, making the transition easier for Daniels in New England.

35) Arizona Cardinals: Graham Barton, OL, Duke

Graham Barton is one of the most versatile players in the draft. A tackle in college, he’s projected to kick inside at the next level and could operate at guard or center. That versatility will allow him to lock down one of the offensive line spots for the Cardinals.

36) Washington Commanders: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

In 2023, Sam Howell was sacked a near-record amount of times. They can’t treat Drake Maye the same.

At 6’7” and 326 pounds, Tyler Guyton has the size, but he’s also one of the most athletic offensive linemen in the draft. After testing, he could move into first-round discussion simply because of his athletic traits, even though he still needs to develop his run blocking.

37) Los Angeles Chargers: Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

As the Chargers opted to address the protection of Herbert in the first round, they now need to give him weapons. With speed, explosiveness, and suddenness, Xavier Worthy embodies everything the Chargers need in a receiver.

38) Tennessee Titans: Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

Troy Franklin has elite speed and crafty route running. He can create separation by manipulating defenders and is elusive with the ball in his hands.

Franklin is an absolute burner and field stretcher who will open up the game for the Titans as they look to get more dynamic in the passing game with Will Levis under center.

39) New York Giants: Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU

Evan Neal hasn’t lived up to expectations since being drafted in 2022, so the Giants need to find an alternative heading into 2024. Kingsley Suamataia can contribute immediately on the right side of the line, and it’s possible to kick Neal into guard if needed.

40) Washington Commanders (From CHI): Chris Braswell, EDGE, Alabama

Chris Braswell is a name that is trending upwards. He had the best year of his career in 2023 on the opposite side to Dallas Turner, and his speed-to-power conversion caused all sorts of issues for offensive linemen.

Braswell has a good foundation of run-defending and pass-rushing skills while still improving.

41) Green Bay Packers (From NYJ): Patrick Paul, OT, Houston

The offensive line needs addressing in Green Bay, but that need becomes even more pressing if David Bakhtiari leaves, as is rumored. Patrick Paul is an overbearing presence at 6’7” and 315 pounds with expected 36” arms.

MORE: Top OTs in the 2024 NFL Draft

While he does need to refine some of his pass protection techniques, he offers immense power and a full bag of tools. If the Packers can develop Paul, he has a sky-high ceiling.

42) Minnesota Vikings: Kamari Lassiter, CB, Georgia

Despite throwing darts to fix their issues at cornerback, Minnesota still needs to find a CB1 who can hold the position down for the future.

Kamari Lassiter is a hard-hitting, physical corner who displays good short-area quickness. He has strong run support versatility and coverage ability.

43) Atlanta Falcons: Darius Robinson, DL, Missouri

Darius Robinson is a physical defensive lineman who possesses a great power profile. He is superb against the run, where he can shed blocks and over-power his opponents. He is still growing as a pass rusher, but Robinson has developmental skills worth a high selection.

44) Chicago Bears (From LV): Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

The Bears have added Williams, now they look to surround him with weapons. DJ Moore is a fantastic option for a rookie QB, but the Bears must add more to diversify their options. Ja’Lynn Polk is a QB-friendly target who is explosive and can haul in difficult catches.

45) New Orleans Saints (From DEN): Adisa Isaac, EDGE, Penn State

Adisa Issac has tools for days, but he is still raw. However, his potential is sky-high with extreme length. His impressive power profile may see him drafted earlier than expected, as his endless motor and accurate hand usage show teams he can get on the field right away.

With their first two picks coming on the d-line, it signals a complete retooling of their defensive front.

46) Indianapolis Colts: Ennis Rakestraw Jr., CB, Missouri

Ennis Rakestraw Jr. can be a first-round pick and a CB1 in the NFL. His length, explosive movement, and anticipation have seen him nullify receivers at Missouri. However, having undergone surgery, Rakestraw has missed the Senior Bowl, making the Combine even more important.

47) New York Giants (From SEA): Kamren Kinchens, S, Miami (FL)

Xavier McKinney is out of contract in New York. Even if they were to resign him, there is still a need to add playmakers in the secondary. Kamren Kinchens can locate the football from anywhere on the field, and his physical playstyle gives him rare range.

48) Jacksonville Jaguars: Leonard Taylor III, DT, Miami (FL)

The interior of the Jaguars defensive line was disappointing in 2023. They need to add more disruption and production through the middle.

Leonard Taylor III has a great athletic profile and causes havoc when disrupting the pocket. His versatility fits well in Jacksonville, where he can be lined up to cause mismatches in the trenches.

49) Cincinnati Bengals: Caelen Carson, CB, Wake Forest

Caelen Carson is a feisty corner who has prototypical size and good enough length. His ability to anticipate routes and cover bigger receivers means he can be left one-on-one on the outside. Carson will be able to offer scheme versatility as an outside option.

50) Philadelphia Eagles (From NO): Tyler Nubin, S, Minnesota

The Eagles need to get younger and, frankly, better in the secondary. Both cornerback and safety are positions of extreme need for Philly, and Tyler Nubin is one player who will be able to start straight away.

MORE: Top Safeties in the 2024 NFL Draft

Nubin has great instincts, awareness, and field vision to create plays and support the run.

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

The Steelers managed to make the playoffs with Kenny Pickett and Mason Rudolph, but they are going to need to improve at the position if they are going to challenge the later stages of the postseason. Pickett has failed to impress, and the Steelers need to explore options to get more dynamic at the position.

Michael Penix Jr. could fall out of the first round because of concerns over his medicals, but his accuracy, decision-making, arm talent, and awareness give him a starter grade in the NFL.

52) Los Angeles Rams: Kiran Amegadjie, OT, Yale

The Rams have to address their tackle spots, and what a gem Kiran Amegadjie could be.

Now starting to gather national attention, Amegadjie could be one of those players who slowly work into early Day 2 discussion. His power, athleticism, and agile movement are traits that get taken early.

53) Philadelphia Eagles: Devontez Walker, WR, North Carolina

The Eagles are lacking that third weapon at receiver outside of A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. Julio Jones, Olamide Zaccheaus, and Quez Watkins could all leave this offseason.

Devontez Walker would be a great complement to Smtih and Brown as an ultimate field stretcher with great instincts, speed, and strength.

54) Cleveland Browns: McKinnley Jackson, DT, Texas A&M

The Browns need to add an interior defensive lineman who offers run blocking and pass rush in equal measure. McKinnley Jackson can attack through the middle with his explosive movement and bend, while also having the balance and leverage to defend the run.

55) Miami Dolphins: T’Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas

Miami needs to add beef to the interior of their defensive line. At 6’4” and 345 pounds, T’Vondre Sweat is one of the best nose tackle prospects in this draft class. His sheer mass and bulk make him impossible to move, and his loaded power means he can take on double teams while having the required burst to acquire leverage off the snap.

56) Dallas Cowboys: Zach Frazier, C, West Virginia

Center Tyler Biadasz’s contract expires at the end of the season, and with other free agents to invest in, we are yet to see if he will be brought back. There are options at the position in the draft, and Zach Frazier has the strength, hand accuracy, and athleticism to lock down that center spot.

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

Safety is a position of concern for Tampa Bay. Antoine Winfield Jr. and Ryan Neal are out of contract at the end of the season. Winfield is a certainty to return, but he won’t be cheap. Adding a running mate for him would be a wise decision.

Beau Brade is ultra-versatile, and his aggressive attitude and strong tackling mean he can thrive in the box.

58) Green Bay Packers: Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas

AJ Dillon’s contract is about to expire, so the Packers need to add talent to complement Aaron Jones.

MORE: Top RBs in the 2024 NFL Draft

Jonathon Brooks is coming off an ACL tear but looked like the top RB in this class until then. If Green Bay is comfortable with his medicals, then Brooks’ burst and acceleration, paired with his innate vision, could be the future.

59) Houston Texans: DeWayne Carter, DT, Duke

Houston doubles down on defensive linemen in the first two rounds. But they need to lean into improving their defense to keep up the momentum built in the 2023 season. With Sheldon Rankins’s contract expiring, DeWayne Carter will be able to step straight in.

An underappreciated prospect through the cycle so far, Carter is a disruptive presence through the middle whose power can equally defend the run and rush the passer.

60) Buffalo Bills: Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan

The Bills have a host of free agents across the defensive line, including Daquan Jones and Jordan Phillips. Kris Jenkins has all the tools to be a starter in the league, and his impressive strength profile, balance, and burst make him a Day 2 player.

MORE: Top DTs in the 2024 NFL Draft

However, he doesn’t have the pass-rushing résumé or production to challenge the top of the class.

61) Detroit Lions: Jonah Elliss, EDGE, Utah

Jonah Ellis is a Dan Campbell-type player if you’ve ever seen one. His fortitude to never give up and his violent rushing style would be awesome on the other side to Aidan Hutchinson.

Elliss has initial explosiveness and all the skill moves to keep offensive linemen guessing. He’s a havoc wrecker who fits Detroit perfectly.

62) Baltimore Ravens: D.J. James, CB, Auburn

The Ravens have struggled at the corner position. With injury setbacks, they desperately need a long-term answer at the position.

D.J. James is a versatile corner who has a high motor and violent tackling ability, as well as all the instincts and awareness to make it in the NFL.

63) Kansas City Chiefs: Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

This just feels unfair. The league should collude to make sure this doesn’t happen. The Chiefs have already picked Legette in this mock draft, and with a good enough roster, they can afford to pick and choose.

Ladd McConkey would be able to control the slot for the Chiefs, allowing Rice to play predominantly on the outside. McConkey can line up anywhere, though. He’s a pure playmaker who does special things with the ball in his hands.

64) San Francisco 49ers: Kalen King, CB, Penn State

The corner position is one of the priorities for the 49ers this offseason, and Kalen King is a solid option in the second round.

MORE: Top CBs in the 2024 NFL Draft

He doesn’t have the size or high athletic upside that others do, which has seen his stock fall over the season, but King does bring intelligence, understanding, and fluidity to start in the NFL.

2024 7-Round NFL Mock Draft | Round 3

7-round 2024 nfl mock draft

65) Carolina Panthers: Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas

Just keep building around Young. In this scenario, that means giving him a comfort blanket at tight end.

Ja’Tavion Sanders is a good athlete with excellent movement skills. His length and massive catch radius would make him a favored option for Young, and his ability to fight through contact and his physical at the catch point will help the young QB out.

66) Arizona Cardinals: Javon Bullard, DB, Georgia

Javon Bullard is a rangy safety whose awareness and anticipation make him a threat when the ball is in the air. His playmaking ability with just enough athleticism gets him sideline-to-sideline as a deep safety.

67) Washington Commanders: Junior Colson, LB, Michigan

Junior Colson will bolster the Commanders’ linebacking corps, which needs bodies outside of Jamin Davis.

MORE: Top LBs in the 2024 NFL Draft

Colson’s mobility and speed make him one of the top linebackers in this class. However, it is his recognition, anticipation, and intelligence that sets him apart.

68) New England Patriots: Calen Bullock, S, USC

The Patriots need to get better in all facets of the game. While safety may not jump out as an immediate need, Calen Bullock is good value at this spot, especially with Kyle Dugger’s contract expiring at the end of the season.

New England has plenty of cap room to work with to re-sign Dugger, but Bullock is a versatile DB with the tools to succeed as a run stuffer and the ball skills and fluidity to track the pass.

69) Los Angeles Chargers: Kris Abrams-Draine, CB, Missouri

The Chargers need a consistent option at cornerback outside of Asante Samuel Jr. Kris Abrams-Draine has impressive explosive but fluid movement with outstanding ball production. He has the physical tools but lacks the size to go early on.

MORE: NFL Draft Prospects for Jim Harbaugh’s Chargers

At 5’11” and 178 pounds, we will see how his lack of length impacts his stock, but his potential gives him a starting grade in the NFL.

70) New York Giants: Michael Hall Jr., DT, Ohio State

Michael Hall will add pressure up front for the Giants. He constantly creates pressure through the middle and has a refined set of pass-rush moves. Hall’s twitchy athleticism makes him elusive in short areas.

71) Arizona Cardinals (From TEN): Sedrick Van Pran, C, Georgia

The projected center for the Cardinals in 2024 is Hjalte Frodholdt. Despite starting all 17 games in 2023, there are still upgrades that can be made. Georgia’s Sedrick Van Pran is a pro-ready true center with a mauler mindset and plenty of athletic movement.

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

The Jets need to add another weapon at receiver outside of Garrett Wilson. Malachi Corley is an explosive, twitchy WR who offers elusiveness after the catch. His dynamic YAC ability and creation capacity will see him eat up space.

73) Detroit Lions (From MIN): Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson

Ruke Orhorhoro offers versatility across the line and combines a solid run defense with developmental pass-rush skills. The Lions have used plenty of assets on the defensive line, but that is because it is important, and they have yet to find an answer through the middle.

74) Atlanta Falcons: Mike Sainristil, CB, Michigan

Mike Sainristil will be able to head to Atlanta and immediately take over the slot cornerback role. Previously a receiver, Sainristil’s background immediately shines through.

MORE: 2024 NFL Draft Team Needs

His ability to recognize and jump routes, with his impressive ball skills, make him an instant-impact corner at the next level.

75) Chicago Bears: Mekhi Wingo, DT, LSU

Mekhi Wingo is a versatile weapon who can line up at different alignments on the defensive line. He has good enough lateral mobility and required balance to hold up against the run and the pass, while his hot motor allows him to penetrate the pocket.

76) Seattle Seahawks: Cooper Beebe, G, Kansas State

The Seahawks potentially have issues at all three interior spots this offseason. Cooper Beebe would be able to lock down either guard spot with his intelligence, awareness, and football IQ. He isn’t a superior athlete, but his formidable power should see him start as a rookie.

77) Las Vegas Raiders: Brandon Dorlus, DL, Oregon

Brandon Dorlus is a versatile defensive lineman who can play inside or out. As a hybrid or a tweener, Dorlus has been productive in different alignments, and his burst and strength combination is enough to scare blockers. His lack of bend may see him be more of an inside rusher for the Raiders.

78) Seattle Seahawks: Khyree Jackson, CB, Oregon

Outside of Devon Witherspoon, the Seahawks’ secondary regressed significantly towards the end of the season.

Khyree Jackson has superb size measurables and fluid movement skills. He shows the capacity to attack and be physical at the catch point, with his toughness being a theme throughout his game.

79) Jacksonville Jaguars: Christian Haynes, G, UConn

Ezra Cleveland is scheduled to hit free agency, and adding a guard along with Powers-Johnson in the first would signal a complete retooling of Jacksonville’s offensive line over the last two seasons.

Christian Haynes has the power and strength profile to take one of the guard spots before the 2024 season.

80) Cincinnati Bengals: Roman Wilson, WR, Michigan

Roman Wilson is an explosive athlete who can go through the gears. His speed and strong hands see him succeed through traffic, and his sudden change of direction sees him create separation during routes.

81) Denver Broncos: Johnny Wilson, WR, Florida State

Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton are both subject to trade speculation, and if either of them are off the team in 2024, it leaves a huge void in the room.

At 6’7”, Johnny Wilson can be schemed up to be a mismatch, and his massive range and arm length make him a significant target in any offense.

82) Indianapolis Colts: Trey Benson, RB, Florida State

Jonathan Taylor is a stud, and with a new contract extension, there’s little doubt he’ll be in town for some time. But that doesn’t mean the Colts can’t pair him with another dynamic running back.

Trey Benson has the vision, speed, mobility, and explosiveness to evade tackles and has the potential to be a lead back in a rotation.

83) Los Angeles Rams: Roger Rosengarten, OT, Washington

The Rams targetted one tackle spot earlier in Amegadjie, they go back and add another here. Roger Rosengarten, at worst, adds versatile depth to the group. However, there’s every chance he can challenge for a starting spot.

With plenty of experience, Rosengarten can blossom into an NFL starter with his explosiveness, balance, and length, allowing him to limit space and attack in a variety of ways.

84) Pittsburgh Steelers: Josh Newton, CB, TCU

Pittsburgh has already added one corner in this mock draft, but they go back to the well, grabbing Josh Newton in the third round.

With players leaving in free agency, the Steelers need more than one additional starter heading into 2024.

Newton, at 5’11” and 190 pounds, will be able to play the slot adequately with his recognition, anticipation, and combative playstyle.

85) Cleveland Browns: Jalen McMillan, WR, Washington

Finding a WR has to be the priority for the Browns. The problem with that is their draft position. It isn’t so simple to marry need with value.

Jalen McMillan isn’t the exciting receiver that Browns fans will be crying for. However, he has the necessary tools and route-running know-how to be a target in the Cleveland passing attack.

86) Houston Texans (From PHI): Jermaine Burton, WR, Alabama

At 6’0″ and 194 pounds, Jermaine Burton has the potential to be WR3 in Houston with the emergence of Tank Dell and Nico Collins. He’s an easy mover and great at the catch point. Burton plays with fire in his belly, and that attitude could be something HC DeMeco Ryans falls in love with.

87) Dallas Cowboys: Jeremiah Trotter Jr., LB, Clemson

Linebacker is often a position where players get pushed down the order, with teams opting to address positions that are seen as more valuable early.

Jeremiah Trotter Jr. does lack explosiveness and speed, which could see him fall behind some other linebackers in this class. However, his instincts and football IQ make him an instant starter in Dallas.

88) Green Bay Packers: Edgerrin Cooper, LB, Texas A&M

Expectations in Green Bay are that De’Vondre Campbell is unlikely to return for the 2024 season. That would be a big loss for the Packers’s LB corps.

Edgerrin Cooper could be the answer because, at 6’3” and 230 pounds, he offers sideline-to-sideline range, playmaking fundamentals, and solid tackling.

89) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cedric Gray, LB, North Carolina

Lavonte David and Devin White could be out this offseason, leaving Tampa Bay needing to pay close attention to the position.

Cedric Gray has the range and frame to play every down. His versatility, instincts, and awareness, combined with his motor and speed, make him one of the top linebackers in this class.

90) Arizona Cardinals (From HOU): Cade Stover, TE, Ohio State

Cade Stover is coming off a career-best year. What makes him different is his ability to be a pass catcher, while also being a top blocker.

Stover’s size, strength, and relative speed mean he is a prospect who has the potential to play all three downs in the NFL. That’s a rarity for modern TE prospects.

91) Green Bay Packers (From BUF): Cole Bishop, S, Utah

The Packers’s safety room is in shambles right now. Rudy Ford, Darnell Savage, and Jonathan Owens are all scheduled to be free agents in 2024. Even if Green Bay can re-sign any of them, they will need to look at the position in the draft.

Cole Bishop is a tough tackler who defends the run excellently, and he could start right away as a strong safety for the Packers.

92) Detroit Lions: Jamari Thrash, WR, Louisville

Josh Reynolds could leave in the offseason if he’s not re-signed, and after a stellar season, he won’t be particularly cheap.

Jamari Thrash is an explosive athlete, who has instant stop/start ability and flexibility through the catch. His body control allows him to sink and dip through routes and create separation with his instincts, awareness, and high football IQ.

93) Baltimore Ravens: Blake Corum, RB, Michigan

Another position that the Ravens have struggled to be healthy at is running back. J.K. Dobbins has had some bad luck with injuries, and Baltimore can’t rely on a revolving door of veterans such as Dalvin Cook forever.

Blake Corum is an electric playmaker who has proven to be reliable and consistent. His twitchy explosiveness allows him to locate space, while his elusivity makes him difficult to tackle.

94) Kansas City Chiefs: Braden Fiske, DT, Florida State

Braden Fiske isn’t the flashiest of defensive linemen, but the Chiefs don’t need him to be. With Chris Jones next to him, Fiske just needs to hold up the point of attack. Fiske displays the ability to control gaps and lanes while creating leverage in the run game, making him an asset on running downs.

95) San Francisco 49ers: Bucky Irving, RB, Oregon

Bucky Irving is an explosive playmaker who has home-run-hitting ability. While Christian McCaffrey is already in San Francisco, Irving can add to the rotation and add another dimension to the rushing attack.

96) Washington Commanders: Braelon Allen, RB, Wisconsin

Antonio Gibson is a projected free agent, and Washington could do with another weapon in the running game outside of Brian Robinson.

Braelon Allen is one of the youngest prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft, and he is extremely physical. He is a bruising runner who is physically gifted. His understanding of zone concepts and his smooth footwork would make a good RB pairing for the Commanders.

97) Philadelphia Eagles: Gabriel Murphy, EDGE, UCLA

Laiatu Latu took all the attention for the Bruins’ defense, but Gabriel Murphy had an extremely productive year of his own.

With 22 solo tackles and eight sacks, Murphy has explosive athleticism and power prowess. He lacks some bend and flexibility to turn the edge, which narrows his ceiling.

98) San Francisco 49ers: Christian Mahogany, OG, Boston College

Christian Mahogany dominated at the Shrine Bowl. He plays with a wide base which gives him a strong center of gravity, and his strength profile means he is rarely beaten. He has the upside to be a plus starter in the NFL.

99) Buffalo Bills: Johnny Dixon, CB, Penn State

A scheme versatile corner, Johnny Dixon has impressive size and athleticism that gives him the ability to be a starter in the NFL.

Dixon’s quick footwork and fluid mobility mean he can track from anywhere on the field. Meanwhile, his physicality makes him strong against the run, and he can even be sent as a blitzer.

100) Washington Commanders: Austin Booker, EDGE, Kansas

Austin Booker’s draft stock is on the rise. His versatility and length mean he can cause mismatches in the trenches.

Booker’s athleticism is what really catches the eye. While he is developmental and lacks a pass-rush plan, he has the raw traits that teams will buy into.
