Podcast: Pre-Combine 7-Round NFL Mock Draft Sends J.J. McCarthy to Giants, Rome Odunze to Broncos

On the latest episode of the PFN Scouting Podcast, A.J. Schulte's recent 2024 NFL Mock Draft helps provide a glimpse of the pre-Combine board.

What does the 2024 NFL Draft board look like heading into the NFL Combine, and what changes could the Combine cause, based on team negotiations and player testing? That’s a topic we explored on the latest episode of the PFN Scouting Podcast.

PFN Scouting Podcast: Reviewing A.J. Schulte’s Latest 7-Round NFL Mock Draft

At each checkpoint along the way to the 2024 NFL Draft, the board evolves as more layers of prospect evaluation are peeled back. With player testing and interviews approaching at the NFL Combine, one more checkpoint is coming.

At each juncture, mock drafts serve as valuable exercises to help gauge the market in its current state and contextualize potential risers and team/prospect fits as the 2024 NFL Draft cycle continues.

On the latest episode of the PFN Scouting Podcast, fellow NFL Draft analyst A.J. Schulte and I indulged this exercise by reviewing Schulte’s recent full 7-Round 2024 NFL Mock Draft, released on Feb. 24.

Schulte’s mock not only included player trades that could be accelerated by team negotiations at the Combine but also sent various potential NFL Combine risers to new, outside-the-box destinations — and the mock united a talented but polarizing QB prospect with a team in limbo inside in the top 10.

Listen in as A.J. and I dive into the mock, review some of our favorite fits from Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3, and talk about some of the more contentious topics. What do the Bears do at No. 9 overall if they take Caleb Williams? How do the Broncos address their QB situation? And what do the Texans do with their first-rounder? All this and more.
