Ian Cummings’ 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft: Vikings Make Massive Deal for Drake Maye, Bengals Trade Tee Higgins

In this 2024 NFL Mock Draft, the Minnesota Vikings make an aggressive move up for a top-tier QB prospect, and Tee Higgins is dealt to the NFC.

The 2024 free agency period is here, and there’s already an entirely new needs matrix ahead of the NFL Draft. Our latest 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft explores how needs have developed across the board and which situations are still fluid, yielding change down the line.

7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft | Round 1

Before we begin, one pre-draft trade includes a current NFL player in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft. That trade is dictated below:

  • Trade: Bengals receive No. 6 pick; Giants receive No. 18 pick, WR Tee Higgins, 2025 second-round pick.

Tee Higgins recently requested a trade as a result of his contract situation. He should have plenty of suitors, but the Giants made it clear with the Brian Burns trade that they’re still looking to compete in the immediate.

Higgins is not a stable long-term asset at this moment, which is why the trade is more balanced in favor of New York. But the Bengals were still able to leverage Higgins into a trade-up to potentially target another upgrade on the offensive side of the ball.

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

Editor’s Note: This 7-Round Mock Draft was published on Saturday morning, hours before the Justin Fields trade to the Steelers was announced. To find out what it means for the Chicago Bears, read why it’s now Caleb Williams or bust.

Everything that can be said about Caleb Williams, at this point, has been said. No prospect is perfect, but Williams’ creation capacity and arm talent are truly special traits, and he has the RPO utility, accuracy, and discretion as a playmaker to make use of Chicago’s support.

2) Washington Commanders: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Washington signing Marcus Mariota doesn’t tip its hand at QB as some have speculated. Jayden Daniels and Drake Maye can both fit the offense, but Kliff Kingsbury could feasibly prefer Daniels because of his downfield accuracy and running ability on spread looks.

3) Minnesota Vikings (via NE): Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

Trade: Vikings receive pick 3; Patriots receive picks 11 and 23, and a 2025 first-round pick.

We’re in the thick of misinformation season, so every report should be taken with a grain of salt. That said, we always hear whispers about supposed QB preferences, and one of the more recent rumors is that the Patriots could trade down if Daniels isn’t available.

Personally, I don’t buy it. Drake Maye is a QB1 candidate on my board, and he’d be an excellent fit for Alex Van Pelt’s scheme. But in this mock, let’s entertain the possibility: If New England trades down with Daniels gone, who trades up?

I see the Vikings as a team willing to sell the farm for Maye.

They were reportedly willing to go in big for Anthony Richardson in 2023, and they’re loading up after their trade with the Texans. With Kirk Cousins gone, they need to pounce on the opportunity to add a passer like Maye — even if it means a short-term capital hit.

If you’re a Vikings fan and you’re asking me, I think Maye is easily worth the price. He’s one of the highest-graded QBs I’ve ever evaluated — pairing prototypical size and athleticism with elite arm strength, elasticity, and high-level anticipation and leverage IQ. He’d thrive in Minnesota’s system with the weapons they have.

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

The Cardinals could look at trading down if they want to add even more to their treasure chest of 2024 capital. But it’s hard to pass up Marvin Harrison Jr. In a stacked WR class, Harrison is a superlative player who brings shades of Randy Moss in his peak moments.

5) Los Angeles Chargers: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

Jim Harbaugh hasn’t hidden his desire to run the ball since arriving in Los Angeles. Joe Alt would allow him to do that with his frame, length, and power drive. And in the passing game, Alt’s rare flexibility and short-area athleticism for his size would be invaluable.

6) Cincinnati Bengals (via NYG): Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Trade: Bengals receive No. 6 pick; Giants receive No. 18 pick, WR Tee Higgins, 2025 second-round pick.

On the one hand, it’s not ideal that, in a trade of Higgins, the Bengals ultimately gave up capital. But in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft, Higgins was used to leverage a trade-up for a blue-chip receiver on a rookie contract. Cincinnati resets the clock and still adds a surefire stud.

At 6’3″, 215 pounds, Rome Odunze is coming off a season with the Washington Huskies in which he caught 92 passes for 1,640 yards and 13 touchdowns. He’s an incredible athlete for his size, with rare size-adjusted flexibility. His patience and control at the catch point is unmatched atop this class.

In any other class, Odunze would be WR1, and he’s an exceptional fit alongside Ja’Marr Chase. My comp for Odunze is three-time Pro Bowler and one-time All-Pro Art Monk, who played for Washington from 1980 to 1993.

Odunze can have a similar outcome to Monk in terms of his production and longevity. Stylistically, they’re similar as well: Streamlined WRs with strong three-level frameworks.

Monk had enough speed to win vertically, but his burst, fluidity as a separator and RAC threat, and unimpeachable consistency at the catch point ultimately made him so dangerous. Odunze has that same makeup.

7) Denver Broncos (via TEN): J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Trade: Broncos receive No. 7 pick; Titans receive No. 12 pick, No. 145 pick, 2025 first-round pick, 2025 third-round pick.

Three QBs are off the board, and the Las Vegas Raiders are looming at 13th overall. Sean Payton takes no chances, trading up for a young QB in J.J. McCarthy. McCarthy has the requisite talent, and he’s shown he can work the middle of the field with anticipation.

8) Atlanta Falcons: Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

Dallas Turner is 6’3″, 247 pounds, with 34 1/2″ arms, 4.46 speed, and elite bend capacity. You can go years without seeing a pass-rushing weapon built like Turner. Raheem Morris should jump at the chance to insert Turner into his defense as a game-changing piece.

9) Chicago Bears: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

The trade for Keenan Allen allows the Bears to pass on a WR at No. 9. But imagine a WR group with Allen, D.J. Moore, and Malik Nabers as an explosive powder keg in the RAC phase, and a vertical catalyst. That trio could help the Bears compete as early as 2024.

10) New York Jets: Troy Fautanu, OT, Washington

Tyron Smith and Morgan Moses are both 33 years old, and the Jets have struggled with injuries midseason. Troy Fautanu gives you one of the best, most versatile “sixth men” in the league, and he can instantly take the torch as an impact starter at OT when the time comes.

11) New England Patriots (via MIN): Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

The Patriots willingly punted on the top-four QBs in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft and fell out of range of the top three WRs. But Olu Fashanu is by no means a bad consolation prize. Across from Mike Onwenu, he locks down left tackle with his balance and synergy.

12) Tennessee Titans (via DEN): Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

With needs at both left and right tackle, the Titans should double-dip in the 2024 NFL Draft if they can — especially if they trade down past Alt and Fashanu. But at the very least, Taliese Fuaga can dominate on the right side with his athleticism, power, and composure.

13) Las Vegas Raiders: Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

In Patrick Graham’s defense, CBs have to be able to click and close, drive on passes quickly, impact the ball, and play a variety of techniques. Toledo’s Quinyon Mitchell fits that profile to a tee with his speed, tenacity, and instinctive playmaking.

14) New Orleans Saints: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

Saints fans may be weary about Amarius Mims after the Trevor Penning experiment didn’t work out. But Mims is truly a build-a-tackle specimen at 6’8″, 340 pounds, with 36″ arms, and he’s quietly well beyond his age with his leverage acquisition and anchor placement.

15) Indianapolis Colts: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Brock Bowers is the dream for the Indianapolis Colts in Round 1. He’s the ultimate final boss for defenses in Shane Steichen’s offense, with his ability to be schemed touches as an explosive RAC threat while also capitalizing on seam passes from Anthony Richardson.

16) Seattle Seahawks: Jackson Powers-Johnson, OL, Oregon

Holes remain for the Seattle Seahawks at all three interior offensive line spots. Drafting Jackson Powers-Johnson is a great way to hedge for all three deficiencies at once. He can play guard in a pinch, but Powers-Johnson also profiles as a high-level starting center.

17) Jacksonville Jaguars: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

Ryan Nielsen runs a man-oriented scheme, and there’s no CB prospect better equipped to thrive in man coverage than Terrion Arnold. Already, Arnold is advanced beyond his years technically, and his absurd fluidity and closing burst allow him to suffocate WRs.

18) New York Giants (via CIN): JC Latham, OT, Alabama

Trade down and acquire 2025 capital? Check. Add a bonafide WR1 in Tee Higgins? Check. Acquire a potential upgrade at right tackle in JC Latham? Check. The Giants capitalize on the depth of the OL class here, adding an absolute powerhouse with chops in pass protection.

19) Los Angeles Rams: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

The Rams’ new contention window has opened, and Jared Verse gives them an immediate boost at a premier position. Verse is an elite speed-to-power threat and a phenomenal run defender whose two-phase presence can reinvigorate Los Angeles’ EDGE attack.

20) Pittsburgh Steelers: Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU

This pick works two-fold for the Steelers. Not only does Brian Thomas Jr. fill a void following the Diontae Johnson trade, but he also fits Russell Wilson’s vertical style.

MORE: Top WRs in the 2024 NFL Draft

My comp for Thomas is Javon Walker, who made the Pro Bowl with 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2021.

21) Miami Dolphins: Byron Murphy II, DT, Texas

Now that Christian Wilkins is officially out the door, the Dolphins can focus on finding the next two-phase force at DT alongside Zach Sieler. Byron Murphy II, who plays at around 308 pounds, has the combined explosiveness, torque, leverage, and strength they need.

22) Philadelphia Eagles: Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

Chop Robinson’s need for greater operational consistency makes this pick a bit trepidatious, but there’s a level of confidence that Vic Fangio can properly weaponize a 6’3″, 254-pound alignment-versatile maniac with 4.48 speed and no regard for his opponents’ safety.

23) New England Patriots (from MIN via HOU): Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

This is for the Patriots fans who panicked when New England traded down with Maye on the board. Michael Penix Jr. isn’t at Maye’s level as a prospect, but he still has a reasonable path to being a quality NFL starter, with Jacoby Brissett to lean on as a bridge.

RELATED: Top QBs in the 2024 NFL Draft

Penix isn’t as dangerous as a creator as other QBs, but he’s a capable pocket operator with high-level processing ability, field vision, and arm strength, with the drive velocity to take advantage of seam and hole shots that are prevalent in Van Pelt’s scheme.

24) Detroit Lions (via DAL): Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

Trade: Lions receive No. 24 pick; Cowboys receive No. 29 pick, No. 73 pick, 2025 fourth-round pick.

Marcus Davenport serves as great depth for the Lions at EDGE, but they still need the guy opposite Aidan Hutchinson. Laiatu Latu has the kind of red-hot motor that would win over Dan Campbell, and he’s an easy player to bet on with his ruthless technique and bend.

25) Green Bay Packers: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

Jeff Hafley will bring an increase of even-front, middle-field closed looks to Green Bay’s defense. In that scheme, man-zone versatility will be important for CBs. Kool-Aid McKinstry has that more than most in the 2024 class, and he’s a prolific playmaker at the catch point.

26) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Cooper DeJean, CB, Iowa

Todd Bowles CBs will press you and get in your grill, but they also need to be able to pedal back in zone and play space. Cooper DeJean could fit well on the boundary in this scheme with his speed and instincts, but he also has the frame and physicality to rotate into the slot.

27) Arizona Cardinals (From HOU): Graham Barton, OL, Duke

After signing Jonah Williams in free agency, the Cardinals appear to be set at tackle. But Graham Barton can play guard immediately, providing long-term security at both center and tackle. He’s a tenacious mix-and-match piece who could be the final component of a strong offensive line.

28) Buffalo Bills: AD Mitchell, WR, Texas

The Bills’ need at WR was well-known heading into free agency, and Gabe Davis’ departure only emphasized that. AD Mitchell has the 6’2″ frame and 4.35 speed to be a vertical threat like Davis, but he has infinitely greater upside as a route runner.

29) Dallas Cowboys (via DET): Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

The board didn’t fall Dallas’ way — even after a trade-down in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft — but Tyler Guyton is an exciting lineman to match with Tyler Smith and Zack Martin. He needs to improve his drive in the run game, but he has the athleticism and length to be a force.

30) Baltimore Ravens: Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

No NFL team has come as close to sentient thunder and lightning as the Ravens would if they paired Derrick Henry with Xavier Worthy. Worthy’s generational speed, interwoven with Lamar Jackson and Henry in the box, would stretch defenses as thin as sliced cheese.

31) San Francisco 49ers: Darius Robinson, DL, Missouri

The 49ers have been proactive in free agency, but they still lack an alignment-versatile force to replace Arik Armstead. With his 6’5″, 290-pound frame and 35″ arms, Darius Robinson can be that player. He can be a cross-front goblin in the mold of Houston’s Autry.

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

Ladd McConkey makes success at WR fairly simple. He separates with his torrid athleticism and sharp detail, and he catches the football. He’d be a source of stability for Kansas City. He, Rashee Rice, and newly-acquired Hollywood Brown should incite fear in opposing defenses.

Round 2

Ian Cummings' 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft: Vikings Make Massive Deal for Drake Maye, Bengals Trade Tee Higgins

33) Carolina Panthers: Adisa Isaac, EDGE, Penn State

After the Burns trade, the Panthers’ cupboard is bare at EDGE. Adisa Isaac can change that with his well-rounded physical profile and his unyielding motor in two-phase pursuit.

34) Houston Texans (via NE): Johnny Newton, DT, Illinois

Trade: Texans receive No. 34 pick; Patriots receive No. 42 pick, 2025 fourth-round pick, RB Dameon Pierce.

Close your eyes and imagine a defensive line with Will Anderson Jr., Danielle Hunter, Denico Autry, and Folorunso Fatukasi serving as the foil at nose tackle. Now add the hyper-flexible 3-tech Johnny Newton and open your eyes. In this 2024 NFL Mock Draft, it’s a reality.

35) Arizona Cardinals: Max Melton, CB, Rutgers

At 5’11”, 187 pounds, with 32″ arms, 4.39 speed, elite explosiveness, and slot-boundary versatility, Max Melton checks all the boxes as a CB prospect worth investing in.

36) Washington Commanders: Tyler Nubin, S, Minnesota

Dorance Armstrong, Frankie Luvu, Bobby Wagner, and Jeremy Chinn kicked off Washington’s rebuild. Tyler Nubin keeps it going with his coverage and support value.

37) Los Angeles Chargers: Zach Frazier, C, West Virginia

The offensive line will be a heavy focus for the Chargers under Harbaugh. It follows that Zach Frazier should be a prime target at 37th overall with his strength and football IQ.

38) Tennessee Titans: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

Nate Wiggins’ weight may be a red flag for some teams, but at this spot, his value as a playmaking threat and scheme-diverse CB — not to mention blazing speed — is too good to pass up.

39) Carolina Panthers (via NYG): Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

Keon Coleman didn’t run as fast as expected, but his play speed compensates.

MORE: 2024 NFL Draft Big Board

For Carolina, he’s a boundary alpha to complement Johnson.

40) Washington Commanders: Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU

Ideally, the Commanders invest more in the veteran OT market, but Kingsley Suamataia has the power and athleticism at 6’5″, 326 pounds to be an impact starter down the road.

41) Green Bay Packers: Payton Wilson, LB, NC State

As long as he can stay healthy, Payton Wilson has the range, intellect, and coverage ability at 6’4″ to be a central presence in the Packers’ defense alongside Quay Walker.

42) New England Patriots (from HOU via MIN): Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

Simply reuniting Penix with Ja’Lynn Polk is an exciting proposition, but Polk himself fits the Puka Nacua profile well with his frame, hands of glue, and universal alignment versatility.

43) Atlanta Falcons: Ricky Pearsall, WR, Florida

Ricky Pearsall has the functional athleticism and versatility to be the Falcons’ movement Z opposite Drake London, and his hands should win Kirk Cousins’ favor early.

44) Las Vegas Raiders: Patrick Paul, OT, Houston

Patrick Paul needs to keep refining his technique to counteract middling flexibility, but at 6’7 1/2″, 331 pounds, with over 36″ arms, he has the ideal build of a right tackle.

45) New Orleans Saints: Marshawn Kneeland, EDGE, Western Michigan

Isaiah Foskey could undergo a second-year leap, but he shouldn’t stop the Saints from swinging again at EDGE. Marshawn Kneeland has Dennis Allen’s preferred power profile.

46) Indianapolis Colts: T.J. Tampa, CB, Iowa State

T.J. Tampa is the kind of size-speed athlete that Gus Bradley would crave on the boundary, and he’s impressively fluid and free-flowing for his size, with receiver-esque ball skills.

47) New York Giants: Renardo Green, CB, Florida State

Coming over from Tennessee, Shane Bowen will covet corners who can rise to the challenge in man coverage. Renardo Green is one of the press-man poster children of the 2024 class.

48) Jacksonville Jaguars: Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson

Ruke Orhorhoro is already a stellar run defender, and at 6’4″, 294 pounds, with 34″ arms and 4.89 speed, he has the athleticism to be a menacing, alignment-versatile pass-rusher.

49) Cincinnati Bengals: T’Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas

After moving on from D.J. Reader, the Bengals need a nose tackle to play alongside Sheldon Rankins. T’Vondre Sweat has the size and strength to fit the role with ease.

50) Philadelphia Eagles: Christian Haynes, G, UConn

Assuming the Eagles shift Cam Jurgens to center to replace Jason Kelce, Christian Haynes can file in as an instant impact player at guard with his burst and ravenous power output.

51) Pittsburgh Steelers: Roger Rosengarten, OT, Washington

Roger Rosengarten needs to improve his play strength, especially in Arthur Smith’s offense. But his athleticism, recovery capacity, and active hand usage are worth betting on.

52) Los Angeles Rams: Kamari Lassiter, CB, Georgia

Kamari Lassiter isn’t quite an elite size/speed athlete, but he is a diverse cover man with stifling support ability, crisp change-of-direction, and high-point instincts downfield.

53) Philadelphia Eagles: Cole Bishop, S, Utah

At 6’2″, 206 pounds, Cole Bishop has the fluidity and 4.45 speed to play in coverage, but he’s also exceedingly proficient at coming downhill and deconstructing blocks in support.

54) Cleveland Browns: Braden Fiske, DT, Florida State

Braden Fiske‘s arm length will be an issue for some teams, but at the end of the day, he’s an unhinged competitor with supercharged athleticism. That’ll play in the NFL.

55) Miami Dolphins: Cooper Beebe, G, Kansas State

After losing Robert Hunt, the Dolphins can right the ship by adding Cooper Beebe. Beebe is similarly dense and powerful, but he also has the athleticism and urgency to get into space.

56) Dallas Cowboys: Trey Benson, RB, Florida State

Even if the Cowboys make a free agent signing at RB, investing in a true workhorse with three-down upside like Trey Benson could pay dividends two or three years down the line.

57) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Chris Braswell, EDGE, Alabama

It’s essentially a clean slate for Tampa Bay at EDGE this offseason, and Chris Braswell can assist YaYa Diaby with his speed-to-power and active hands around the arc.

58) Green Bay Packers: Jordan Morgan, OL, Arizona

With sub-33″ arms, the Packers would likely shift Jordan Morgan inside to guard. The Arizona product has the high-energy athleticism, frame density, and torque to thrive on the interior.

59) Houston Texans: Kiran Amegadjie, OL, Yale

Whether they need him at tackle or guard, Kiran Amegadjie has the explosive athleticism and competitive edge at 6’5″, 320 pounds, to be a high-level starter for the Texans.

60) Buffalo Bills: Beau Brade, S, Maryland

For the first time since 2017, the Bills could be without both Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde in 2024.

CONTINUE READING: Top Safeties in the 2024 NFL Draft

Beau Brade starts the new guard with his support urgency and smooth pedal.

61) Detroit Lions: Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

Troy Franklin is light and has suspect hands, with those factors causing him to drop in this mock. But his speed, dynamic RAC ability, and versatility would fit perfectly in Detroit.

62) Baltimore Ravens: Junior Colson, LB, Michigan

With Roquan Smith at the MIKE spot, Junior Colson would be freed up to play fast and confident in Baltimore’s scheme, using his athleticism to blanket windows and rush gaps.

63) San Francisco 49ers: Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

There’s some quiet uncertainty surrounding Deebo Samuel’s long-term future in San Francisco. Xavier Legette brings a similarly exciting size/speed profile to mold at 6’1″, 221 pounds.

64) Kansas City Chiefs: Ennis Rakestraw Jr., CB, Missouri

With L’Jarius Sneed’s future uncertain, Ennis Rakestraw Jr. is a value Steve Spagnuolo can’t say no to. With his 32″ arms and chippy mentality in press, Rakestraw is a perfect match.

Round 3

Ian Cummings' 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft: Vikings Make Massive Deal for Drake Maye, Bengals Trade Tee Higgins

65) Carolina Panthers: Caelen Carson, CB, Wake Forest

After trading away Donte Jackson, cornerback has moved up the needs list for Carolina. In Ejiro Evero’s scheme, Caelen Carson‘s ability to match in man with fast feet would play well.

66) Arizona Cardinals: Malik Mustapha, S, Wake Forest

Budda Baker is a free agent in 2025, and the Cardinals don’t have a 210-pound buzzsaw like Malik Mustapha. He’s a menace in support and can also play off-man in the slot.

67) Washington Commanders: Roman Wilson, WR, Michigan

Roman Wilson could be a nice match with Daniels, given his speed and ability to work vertically. He also has the high-level body control and coordination to convert tough catches.

68) New England Patriots: Mason McCormick, OL, South Dakota State

A Shrine Bowl and NFL Combine standout, Mason McCormick has the tools to play guard in the short term and potentially replace David Andrews at center down the road.

69) Los Angeles Chargers: Mike Sainristil, CB, Michigan

If there’s any player Harbaugh would like to keep around from Michigan, Mike Sainristil should be near the top of the list with his playmaking ability, versatility, and passion.

70) New York Giants: Christian Mahogany, G, Boston College

One guard spot is secure with the Giants signing Jon Runyan Jr. Christian Mahogany can fill the other spot with his mauler mentality, churning power, and imposing anchor.

71) Arizona Cardinals: Malachi Corley, WR, Western Kentucky

Now that the Cardinals have Harrison to funnel the defense’s attention at WR1, they’ll have the space underneath to unleash an elite RAC threat like Malachi Corley.

72) San Francisco 49ers (via NYJ): Blake Fisher, OT, Notre Dame

Trade: 49ers receive picks No. 72 and No. 185; Jets receive picks No. 94, No. 176, No. 211, and a 2025 third-round pick.

KEEP READING: Top OTs in the 2024 NFL Draft

Natural right tackles are flying off the board in this mock. That’s why the 49ers make an aggressive move up for a young, athletic, powerful one in Blake Fisher.

73) Dallas Cowboys: Javon Bullard, S, Georgia

Bearing similarity to standout NFL starter Jordan Whitehead, Javon Bullard is a versatile, twitched-up, physical competitor with a fluid pedal, good vision, and a fast trigger.

74) Atlanta Falcons: Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

After trading Desmond Ridder, the Falcons need a high-quality backup. As good as Cousins is, he’s only getting older. Bo Nix grants immediate security and has starting upside.

75) Chicago Bears: Sedrick Van Pran, C, Georgia

There’s work to do with Sedrick Van Pran‘s base alignment against power rushers, but he’s an extremely explosive, tenacious run blocker who employs voracious, combative hands.

76) Denver Broncos: DeWayne Carter, DT, Duke

The Broncos need security on the interior DL. It doesn’t get much more secure than DeWayne Carter — a three-year captain with utility against the pass and the run.

77) Las Vegas Raiders: Jalen McMillan, WR, Washington

The release of Hunter Renfrow paves the way for a WR like Jalen McMillan to enter the fold. McMillan is an extremely nuanced route runner who also functions as a speed threat.

78) Washington Commanders (via SEA): Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington

The Commanders added Dorance Armstrong and Dante Fowler this offseason, but Bralen Trice can be an excellent understudy with his power profile and red-hot motor.

79) Atlanta Falcons: Andru Phillips, CB, Kentucky

A.J. Terrell and Clark Phillips III have secure roles with the Falcons, but Andru Phillips can fill the gaps as an elite athlete with rare fluidity and actionable slot-boundary versatility.

80) Cincinnati Bengals: Brandon Coleman, OL, TCU

Brandon Coleman could give the Bengals an upgrade over Cordell Volson at guard, but he also has the physical tools and pre-existing experience to play at tackle if needed.

81) Seattle Seahawks: Dadrion Taylor-Demerson, S, Texas Tech

Out with Quandre Diggs, in with Dadrion Taylor-Demerson — a DB who could have a similar impact with his versatility, ball-tracking ability, and unhinged tenacity coming downhill.

82) Indianapolis Colts: Jermaine Burton, WR, Alabama

Jermaine Burton‘s searing speed is already a tailor-made fit for Steichen’s scheme, but Burton’s hands are rock solid, and he knows how to stem with his speed, too.

83) Los Angeles Rams: Trevin Wallace, LB, Kentucky

At 6’1″, 240 pounds, with near-33″ arms and 4.51 speed, Trevin Wallace has all of the physical qualities coveted in a linebacker and tackles like an apex predator in pursuit.

84) Pittsburgh Steelers: Tanor Bortolini, C, Wisconsin

Tanor Bortolini can still improve his leveraging against power at center, but he’s an explosive, physical, and high-IQ run blocker who put up a wicked 7.16 three-cone.

85) Cleveland Browns: Ben Sinnott, TE, Kansas State

The Browns have David Njoku, but a TE2 like Ben Sinnott — with his usage versatility, RAC utility, and conversion chops — could be very valuable across the scheme.

86) Houston Texans: Edgerrin Cooper, LB, Texas A&M

Losing Blake Cashman, the Texans need to dip into the 2024 LB class. Edgerrin Cooper has the range, length, and dynamism to buoy an incredibly high ceiling with DeMeco Ryans.

87) Dallas Cowboys: Devontez Walker, WR, North Carolina

Interestingly, my comp for Devontez Walker is Laurent Robinson: An adept vertical threat in his prime, who caught 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 scores with Dallas in 2011.

88) Green Bay Packers: Will Shipley, RB, Clemson

For the time being, Josh Jacobs is the Packers’ workhorse back. But Will Shipley can be an excellent No. 2 with his receiving versatility and slippery agility between the tackles.

89) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas

There are questions about Jonathon Brooks‘ ultimate ceiling at the NFL level, but at his floor, he’s a scheme-versatile runner who can slash through vertical lanes with his speed.

90) Arizona Cardinals: Brandon Dorlus, EDGE, Oregon

He’s primarily a power rusher, but Brandon Dorlus brings a unique appeal to Jonathan Gannon’s defense with his alignment flexibility on a down-to-down basis.

91) Green Bay Packers: Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan

With Kenny Clark set to be a free agent in 2025, it’s never too early to plan for the future. At around 6’3″, 305 pounds, with 34″ arms, Kris Jenkins has all the requisite tools to develop.

92) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dominick Puni, OL, Kansas

Dominick Puni played tackle for Kansas in 2023, but he projects very well at guard and center with his ability to play square. He could file in wherever Tampa Bay needs him.

93) Baltimore Ravens: Delmar Glaze, OT, Maryland

The Ravens will need to get Delmar Glaze in the lab as a run blocker, but he has athleticism, an ideal power profile, and immediate left-right versatility on the line.

94) New York Jets (via SF): Kamren Kinchens, S, Miami (FL)

Kamren Kinchens‘ testing surprised many, but on tape, he still has the single-high versatility, ball skills, and support chops to entice a team like New York.

95) Kansas City Chiefs: McKinnley Jackson, DT, Texas A&M

Chris Jones is back, and that’s what’s most important. But the Chiefs can truly maximize his skill set by adding a space-eating, combo-absorbing nose tackle like McKinnley Jackson.

96) Jacksonville Jaguars: Malik Washington, WR, Virginia

Gabe Davis is the vertical threat, and Christian Kirk is the space creator. Malik Washington can be a defensive nightmare in the slot with his burst, twitch, and steady hands.

97) Cincinnati Bengals: Javon Foster, OT, Missouri

The OT class is running dry quickly in this mock, so the Bengals make the jump on Javon Foster: A developmental prospect with length, grip strength, burst, and left-right utility.

98) Philadelphia Eagles: Jarrian Jones, CB, Florida State

Jarrian Jones isn’t the biggest CB, but he’s a feisty competitor who never hesitates to get in the grill of his opponent. Add in his 4.38 recovery speed, and he can be a high-level nickel.

99) Las Vegas Raiders (via LAR): Spencer Rattler, QB, South Carolina

Trade: Raiders receive picks 99 and 254; Rams receive picks 112 and 208, and a 2025 fourth-round pick.

Toward the end of Round 3 in this 2024 NFL Mock Draft, the Raiders trade up for Spencer Rattler, one of the few QBs remaining with legitimate starting upside.

GET DRAFTING: Free NFL Mock Draft Simulator With Trades

With Gardner Minshew and Aidan O’Connell in tow, Rattler wouldn’t have to start right away, and he’d be able to develop behind the scenes.

100) Washington Commanders: Michael Hall Jr., DT, Ohio State
