SNS NFL Draft Night One Review and Night Two Preview

2024 NFL DRAFT - First Round Results

1. Chicago (from Carolina)

Caleb Williams / QB / USC

This pick has been a no-brainer since Williams burst on the scene at Oklahoma. He is a QB with a complete skill set to be a true difference making star, as long as his quirks are not an issue in the locker room.

2. Washington

Jayden Daniels / QB / LSU

Very productive player at Arizona State and LSU. Very strong arm. Intelligent. Reads the field well. Terrific athlete. Body could have trouble with the pounding taken at the QB position.

3. New England

Drake Maye / QB / North Carolina

Maye has an athletic profile similar to Josh Allen and Justin Herbert. He possesses great arm strength and is a very good athlete. Smart and improving. Superior production gave him the edge over JJ McCarthy.

4. Arizona

Marvin Harrison / WR / Ohio State

A generational talent with size, speed, catch radius, body control, and fantastic hands. He's a better version of his Hall of Fame father.

5. LA Chargers

Joe Alt / OT / Notre Dame

Chargers select the best OT in this draft. Alt has only played OLT but will need to transition to ORT with Rashawn Slater locked in blocking Herbert's blindside.

6. NY Giants

Malik Nabers / WR / LSU

The Giants finally address the gaping hole when OBJ left years ago with the explosive LSU WR. He is highly dynamic with a playing style similar to Ja'Marr Chase. Daniel Jones finally has a deep threat to help open up the underneath passing lanes.

7. Tennessee

JC Latham / OT / Alabama

Latham is huge with a massive wingspan. He is strong, tough, and physical. He has difficulty handling speed and games and stunts can give him headaches. He has the feet to play OLT but has never played it in college. Feast or famine prospect.

8. Atlanta

Michael Penix / QB / Washington

WTH??? A real head scratcher. The Falcons just opened the vault and paid Kirk Cousins serious $$$ and then they draft Penix? Atlanta gets a talented, athletic, and strong-armed QB but pass on serious Edge Rush help and go for a backup? Odd. Very odd.

9. Chicago

Rome Odunze / WR / Washington

Odunze is an absolute stud with size, reach, leaping ability, and hands. Chicago has a Top 3 WR room of Keenan Allen, DJ Moore, and Odunze. Well done by the Bears.

10. Minnesota (from NY Jets)

JJ McCarthy / QB / Michigan

Minnesota trades a fourth and fifth round pick, along with #11, for a sixth round pick and pick #10. With pick #10, the Vikings select JJ McCarthy. His lack of production is concerning but is a winner with mobility and a strong arm.

11. NY Jets (from Minnesota)

Olu Fashanu / OT / Penn State

The Jets decide that securing Aaron Rodgers' blindside is the best thing to do in the first round. Fashanu has the length, feet, and competitiveness to lock down OLT for the foreseeable future.

12. Denver

Bo Nix / QB / Oregon

Six QBs out of the first 12 selections in this draft- a new record that may never be matched! Nix is accurate, a sneaky good athlete, and is a tough, proven winner. His game is similar to Drew Brees and seems like a natural fit for Sean Payton.

13. Las Vegas

Brock Bowers / TE / Las Vegas

This is a pure value pick. Bowers, SNS' #4 ranked prospect, runs and catches like a WR and looks like a young Mike Alstott running with the ball in the open field. No need addressed here but a great player nonetheless.

14. New Orleans

Taliese Fuaga / OT / New Orleans

Fuaga is the best run blocker in this draft and has a game similar to Penei Sewell, the NFL's highest paid OT. Fuaga has a nasty playing demeanor and is equally adept playing against the pass as against the run.

15. Indianapolis

Laiatu Latu / EDGE / UCLA

Latu is the most productive Edge Rusher in this draft but had to medically retire due to a neck injury. He is technically proficient and well-coached. Latu, at #15, is the first defensive player selected in the 2024 NFL Draft.

16. Seattle

Byron Murphy / IDL / Texas

Seattle drafts the ultra-quick and explosive Murphy to pressure the QB. He closes quickly but can be neutralized by power or when ran at.

17. Minnesota (Trade with Jacksonville

Dallas Turner / EDGE / Alabama

Minnesota gave up two draft picks in 2025 (3rd & 4th), a 2024 5th round pick,  and pick #23 for the right to draft the most explosive pass rusher in this draft. Turner bends and flattens on an elite level and is an outstanding speed rusher. Minnesota has traded up twice and acquired McCarthy and Turner. Excellent work.

18. Cincinnati

Amarius Mims / OT / Georgia

Just a huge man with an unreal wingspan. He has limited experience with only eight career starts but has the athleticism, size, and grit to man either OT spot.

19. LA Rams

Jared Verse / EDGE / Florida State

Verse, SNS' #1 Edge Rusher, is a powerful bull rusher with strength, drive, and determination. He sets a strong edge and is a great run defender. The Rams get an outside pass rusher to help replace the production of the retired Aaron Donald.

20. Pittsburgh

Troy Fautanu / OL / Washington

Fautanu could play either OT or OG with the feet, mobility, and leverage to handle any offensive line position. He's smart, tough, and plays with a nasty disposition.

21. Miami

Chop Robinson / Edge / Penn State

After suffering from season ending injuries to Bradley Chubb and Jaelen Phillips, Miami sees the need to add another pass rusher. Robinson has a a terrific first step and bends, flattens, and closes exceedingly well. He's undersized and needs to improve his run defense but he is an explosive Edge Rusher.

22. Philadelphia

Quinyon Mitchell / CB / Toledo

Mitchell is the most well-rounded, and smoothest, CB in this draft. He has great ball skills and an elite closing burst on the ball. The Eagles reload at a position of need.

23. Jacksonville (from Minnesota through Cleveland / Houston)

Brian Thomas / WR / LSU

After losing Calvin Ridley in free agency, they replace him with the fast rising Tiger. Thomas has size, reach, and great deep speed to become a true #1 WR.

24. Detroit (from Dallas)

Terrion Arnold / CB / Alabama

The Lions trade pick #29 and a third round pick for #24 and a 7th round pick. The Lions select the All-American CB from Alabama who joins fellow Bama player Brian Branch in Detroit's secondary. He has great ability to stay in-phase and he plays the ball exceedingly well. A talented player at a position of need.

25. Green Bay

Jordan Morgan / OT / Arizona

There are more accomplished, bigger, longer, and quicker OTs but few OTs are as well-rounded and ready to contribute right away. Morgan fills a huge need in Green Bay and he should start from Day One this fall.

26. Tampa Bay

Graham Barton / IOL / Duke

Barton has the versatility to play any offensive line position with multiple years of starting experience at OLT. He profiles as a potential Pro Bowl center.

27. Arizona (from Houston)

Darius Robinson / DL / Missouri

Robinson has position flexibility to line up at either DT or DE. He is very quick with great length. He is a quality run defender with a developing arsenal of pass rushing moves. His motor is non-stop and he competes to the echo of the whistle.

28. Kansas City (from Buffalo)

Xavier Worthy / WR / Texas

The only offensive element missing in Kansas City the last few years is the pure speed that Tyreek Hill used to threaten defenses deep. Consider that issue solved with the selection of the uber-fast Worthy (4.21 40) who has dynamic game breaking ability, if less than desireable hands.

29. Dallas (from Detroit)

Tyler Guyton / OT / Dallas

Guyton is an athletic freak in the mold of Hall of Famer Jonathan Ogden. His reach is huge. He is powerful and moves surprisingly well. He's high cut and susceptible to bull rushes but he is an unbelievable athlete and talent.

30. Baltimore

Nate Wiggins / CB / Clemson

Wiggins has the reach, short area reaction skills, and long speed to line up as a true #1 CB. Wiggins is thin and is somewhat ineffective against the run but his natural cover skills are needed in Baltimore.

31. San Francisco

Ricky Pearsall / WR / Florida

Pearsall was a fast riser entering the draft week and he rose all the way to the bottom of the first round. Pearsall has great hands, body control, route running skill, and competitiveness. He has trouble getting a clean release from the line and may be limited to slot duties.

32. Carolina (from Buffalo)

Xavier Legette / WR / South Carolina

Legette solves a major issue in Charlotte. Not only can he get open, but he also catches the ball very well. Bryce Young could have sued his WRs for lack of support last year. Legette is a difference maker with hands, body control, and great leaping ability.

2024 NFL Draft First Round Winners & Losers


NFC North. The entire division came into Detroit on Thursday with a plan and each team seemed to follow their plans perfectly. Chicago selected Williams, a generational talent with a peculiar, individual style and Washington WR Rome Odunze, a complete WR with hands, speed, route running ability, body control, and fantastic leaping ability. The Bears look primed to improve significantly next year. Minnesota wanted a QB on Thursday and were willing to trade their two first round picks to accomplish the task. In the end, the draft fell perfectly to them and they left Detroit with JJ McCarthy and Dallas Turner, two Top 10 talents. Detroit benefited by the first 14 picks of the draft being offensive players and had Alabama CB Terrion Arnold fall into their laps. Green Bay, who likely were interested in Arnold, got jumped by Detroit and could not select him. Instead, they stayed and selected at #25 OT Jordan Morgan, a day one starter at OLT next September. The NFC North may be the best division in football as soon as this coming season.

New Orleans. The Saints are concerned about the immediate future of former Pro Bowl ORT Ryan Ramczyk and decided to select a potential replacement in Fuaga. The Oregon State ORT is a force in the run game and looks to give the Saints an impressive set of starting OTs, regardless of Ramczyk's availability next season.

LA Rams. The Rams selected in the first round on Thursday, a truly rare occurrence that seems to happen on the same regularity of ciacadas, and had a defensive stud fall to them at #19. Verse is well-rounded, strong and physical and can reestablish the LOS and pressure the QB consistently. Great pick by the Rams.


Atlanta. In a truly head shaking move, after signing Kirk Cousins to a four year, $180 million contract in the off season and then they drafted QB Michael Penix at #8. Atlanta has had a complete inability to pressure the QB and they had their choice of Dallas Turner, Laitau Latu, or Jared Verse. And then they selected Michael Penix, the left-handed gunslinger with a cannon for an arm. Huh? What? This is beyond perplexing. Things are kinda strange down in ATL.

Kansas City. Speed kills. And no one in the history of the NFL Scouting Combine has ever run faster than Xavier Worthy's 4.21 40. KC's offense is dangerous and it now has the kind of speed that has been missing since Tyreek Hill left. Worthy is not only fast but also quick and sudden. But his hands are inconsistent and he suffers from concentration drops. There were several other WRs with speed and better hands (Xavier Legette, Tulu Griffin, Roman Wilson) available that KC passed on. For a team that has Kadarius Toney, you would think that dropped passes would be a bigger red flag.
