SNS 2024 Final Mock Draft - Seven Round Mock (First Round)




1. Chicago (from Carolina)

Caleb Williams / QB / USC

After trading Justin Fields to Pittsburgh, the franchise is being handed over to Williams.

2. Washington

Jayden Daniels / QB / LSU

The Commanders like Daniels' arm and open field running ability.

3. New England

Drake Maye / QB / UNC

The Patroits select Maye over McCarthy because of a better track record of production in college.

4. Arizona

Marvin Harrison / WR / Ohio State

The Cardinals have a lot of draft capital and decide that passing on a generational talent at a position of need is too much of a risk.

5. NY Giants (PROPOSED TRADE w / LA Chargers)

JJ McCarthy / QB / Michigan

The Giants give up pick #7 and pick #70 (third round) in this draft for the rights to draft the Michigan signal caller.

6. LA Chargers (PROPOSED TRADE w/ NY Giants)

Taliese Fuaga / OT / Oregon State

The Chargers have the choice of any OT in this draft and choose Fuaga over Joe Alt because they feel that they already have their OLT (Rashawn Slater) and decide to draft the best run blocker in this draft.

7. Tennessee

Joe Alt / OT / Notre Dame

The Titans breathe a sigh of relief when LA selects Fuaga and leaves Alt to Tennessee. Alt is the best OLT in this draft and fills a huge void on the Titans' line.

8. Atlanta

Dallas Turner / EDGE / Alabama

The Falcons have needed an Edge Rusher for years and Turner is the most explosive pass rusher in the 2024 NFL Draft.

9. Chicago

Jared Verse / EDGE / Florida State

The Bears go Edge with pick #9 even though Nabers and Odunze are still on the board. The Bears now line up Montez Sweat and Jared Verse at DE in their four man front.

10. NY Jets

Olu Fashanu / OT / Penn State

The Jets have a small window to contend for a Super Bowl while Rodgers is playing QB and they realize they need to improve their pass protection. Fashanu is a well-rounded OT who gives the Jets a true blindside protector for Rodgers.

11. Cincinnati (PROPOSED TRADE w/ Minnesota)

Brock Bowers / TE / Georgia

Cincinnati trades pick #18 & #49 (2nd round) in the 2024 NFL Draft and select the Georgia TE.

12. Jacksonville (PROPOSED TRADE w/ Denver)

Malik Nabers / WR / LSU

After losing Calvin Ridley in free agency, the Jags trade picks #17 and #48 for pick #12 and a 2025 2nd round pick for the rights to draft the LSU speedster.

13. Buffalo (PROPOSED TRADE w / Las Vegas)

Rome Odunze / WR / Washington

Buffalo is shocked that Odunze is still on the board at pick #13. The Bills give up pick #28 and a 2025 1st round pick for the right to take the big, smooth, and sure-handed Husky WR.

14. New Orleans

Nate Wiggins / CB / Clemson

The Saints could go a number of ways here but decide that taking the first CB off the board is the call to make. Wiggins has good length and deep speed and has a great closing burst on the ball in the air.

15. Indianapolis

Quinyon Mitchell / CB / Toledo

The Colts have few major needs but addressing pass coverage tops the list. Mitchell, SNS' #1 ranked CB prospect, has NFL size and length and is smooth and fluid in coverage.

16. Seattle

Byron Murphy / IDL / Texas

Seattle has a bigger need for an Edge Rusher but are scared off by Latu's injury history. The Seahawks decide taking the dynamic and explosive interior pass rusher gives them the best value at #17.

17. Denver (PROPOSED TRADE w / Jacksonville)

Chop Robinson / EDGE / Penn State

Afer trading for Zach wilson, the Broncos decide that there is no QB worth drafting at #17 overall. By selecting Robinson, the Broncos hope they address their anemic pass rush with the quick and explosive Nittany Lions pass rusher.

18. Minnesota (PROPOSED TRADE w/ Cincinnati)

Michael Penix / QB / Washington

After considering drafting Penix at #11, the Vikings trade down and still get to select the UW signal caller while picking up a 2nd round pick in the process.

19. LA Rams

Amarius Mims / OT / Georgia

The Rams could go a number of ways here at pick #19 but decide to go with the huge and massively talented Bulldog OT. Mims needs development and has limited starting experience but he is a great athlete with rare size.

20. Pittsburgh

Brian Thomas / WR / LSU

George Pickens may be on his way out in the Steel City and the team dealt Diontae Johnson to the Panthers so more WRs are needed. Thomas really came on his last season in Baton Rouge and has the size, speed, and hands to become a #1 NFL WR.

21. Miami

Johnny Newton / IDL / Illinois

The Dolphins have a huge hole to fill on their defensive line after DT Christian Wilkins left in free agency. Newton is not a replacement for Wilkins because he is a player who relies on twitch, quickness, and agility as opposed to power, to wreak havoc on opposing QBs.

22. Philadelphia

Cooper DeJean / CB / Iowa

The Eagles need to reload in the secondary and DeJean has the versatility to line up in the slot or out wide. If DeJean gets drafted in the first round, he'd be the first white CB selected in the opening round this century.

23. Minnesota (from Cleveland thru Houston)

Terrion Arnold / CB / Alabama

Despite needing another Edge Rusher, the Vikings decide that issues with the CBs is a higher priority. Arnold is fluid and moves well enough to cover slot receivers in space.

24. Tampa Bay (PROPOSED TRADE w / Dallas)

Graham Barton / OL / Dallas

The Bucs' run offense has been dismal the last two seasons and decide that trading up and securing the Blue Devil OLT before the Packers select him, is the way to go. Barton is likely to slide inside and could be a Pro Bowl level center. Well worth giving up a fourth round pick for (#125).

25. Green Bay

Troy Fautanu / OL / Washington

Long-time starting OLT David Bakhtiari was released and the Packers can no longer put off upgrading the position. Fautanu has every physical attribute to be a reliable blindside protector but could be an All Pro guard. Regardless of position, the UW All American is ready to contribute right away as a rookie.

26. Dallas (PROPOSED TRADE w / Tampa Bay)

JC Latham / OT / Alabama

The Cowboys are in a difficult position with many holes to fill, limited draft picks, and little cap space to spare. Latham would have likely been the choice at #26  and getting a fourth round pick (#125) to move down two slots makes sense.

27. Arizona (from Houston)

Kool-Aid McKinstry / CB / Alabama

After sticking and picking at #4 and taking Harrison, the Cardinals decide to improve their secondary with the Bama CB. McKinstry has good size and length and more production on the ball would make this an outstanding pick.

28. Las Vegas (PROPOSED TRADE w/ Buffalo)

Tyler Guyton / OT / Oklahoma

Surprisingly, the Raiders pass on Bo Nix and select the developmental OT with tremendous upside from Oklahoma. Guyton has tremendous length and size and is a fantastic athlete with light feet.

29. Detroit

Zach Frazier / IOL / West Virginia

The Lions' renaissance has many factors but the key attribute may be the physical nature of the team. The Lions want to dominate the line of scrimmage and Frazier is the most complete center in this loaded class. All Pro center Frank Ragnow has battled injuries the last few years and may be closer to retirement than any Lions fan would like to think. Frazier is tough, strong, and has the size and demeanor to play either guard or center.

30. Baltimore

Laiatu Latu / EDGE / UCLA

Every year it seems that the Ravens always find gems that other teams overlook. Latu is productive and consistent - he is arguably the best Edge defender in the nation the last two years. But Latu had to medically retire while playing at Washington due to a severe neck injury. This is likely to impact his draft status. But if you only look at his film the last two years, he'd be a Top 10 pick this weekend.

31. San Francisco

Kris Jenkins / IDL / Michigan

The 49ers have no huge holes to fill but salary cap issues loom and key components of the team are beginning to age out of the NFL. By selecting Jenkins, the Niners get a well-rounded DT with a championship pedigree and an NFL legacy.

32. Kansas City

Xavier Legette / WR / South Carolina

Legette is being overshadowed in a deep and talented WR class. But Legette is a complete WR with size, reach, speed, explosiveness, body control, and reliable hands. And that last part is the main reason the Chiefs take the Gamecocks WR - his hands. Legette has multiple years of production in the SEC and would normally be a Top 15 selection in any NFL Draft.
