Unraveling the 2024 NFL Draft Puzzle: Mock Draft Predictions and Team Needs Analysis

The outlook for the 2024 NFL Draft is still somewhat murky, with the NFL Scouting Combine approaching in a couple of weeks and free agency shortly after. Many uncertainties remain, but I’ve ventured into the realm of mock drafts to try and decipher the 32-pick puzzle by addressing team needs as of mid-February.

Although there may be changes before the draft, at this point, it would be surprising to see anyone other than Williams drafted by the Bears at No. 1.

The Commanders have explored the idea of moving up to reunite Caleb Williams with OC Kliff Kingsbury, but the asking price is steep for a team with multiple needs. Maye could provide Washington with a solid foundation. In another scenario, the Patriots trade for Justin Fields, signaling a new era by acquiring arguably the draft’s top player.

Atlanta makes a move to secure the Heisman Trophy winner before another team beats them to it. Daniels brings a dynamic dual-threat element to the Falcons’ offense under new head coach Raheem Morris. Jim Harbaugh prioritizes a tough, physical team for Justin Herbert’s protection, making Alt the likely choice for the Chargers.

The Giants, if sticking with Daniel Jones, aim to bolster their offense by selecting Nabers, potentially providing Jones with a true No. 1 receiver. The Titans focus on improving protection for Will Levis, considering Fashanu as part of the solution.

Monti Ossenfort, GM of the Bears, acquires multiple picks in the first three rounds, securing a receiver for Kyler Murray who draws comparisons to Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald. The Bears aim to strengthen their pass rush with the selection of Alt.

In a trade with the Jets, the Raiders secure McCarthy, preventing Tom Brady from allowing him to fall to rival teams. With free agency thinning the Vikings’ options, Verse’s relentless effort would be welcomed. The Bengals break their streak of not trading up in Round 1 to acquire Bowers, a top-five talent.

The Jets acquire Fuaga to bolster their offensive line, while New Orleans addresses their need for tackles by selecting Latham. The Colts luck out with Arnold, the draft’s top corner falling to them in the middle of Round 1. Fautanu reunites with OC Ryan Grubb in Seattle, adding versatility to the offensive line.

The Jaguars add Murphy to their defensive front, potentially forming a formidable unit. Payton seeks help in Denver with the selection of Nix, a good fit for the Broncos. The Rams intensify their pass rush with Latu, while the Steelers solidify their offensive line with Guyton.

Miami fills a void at center with Powers-Johnson, while the Eagles target Mitchell to bolster their pass defense. The Texans add Wiggins to their secondary, and the Packers continue their trend of drafting Iowa defenders with the selection of a versatile defensive back.

The Bucs can’t resist Walker’s athletic ability, adding depth to their defense. The Cardinals opt to stay put, selecting Mims to bolster their offensive line. The Bills address the potential departure of Gabe Davis with the selection of Thomas, a prolific receiver.

The Lions add McKinstry to their secondary, while the Ravens opt for Robinson to give Lamar Jackson a reliable target. Finally, the Chiefs select Walker, recognizing his potential to be a reliable wideout for Patrick Mahomes.
