2024 NFL Mock Draft 3.0

2024 NFL Mock Draft 3.0

Mock Draft 3.0 is here! Be sure to check out the evolution by reading Mock Draft 1.0 and Mock Draft 2.0! We’re only TWO WEEKS AWAY! Leave some comments and let me know what you think! 

1. If the Bears were smart, they would find a way to get out of this spot. Caleb Williams is NOT the guy. Justin Fields COULD have been the guy, especially with the tools that were added to the offense this offseason, but we will never know. I would trade this pick to Washington straight up at this point. 

Williams didn’t beat any ranked teams last year, couldn’t come back from behind, cried like a baby, and now wants ownership options. You have to question his mental toughness, and that makes him a terrible #1 pick. He’s a franchise KILLER! Bears: Do NOT feed the WILLIAMS!

2.  Jayden Daniels is starting to win me over as the best QB in the draft. I said the same thing about CJ Stroud over Bryce Young last year, and I will say it now about Daniels this year. If Washington doesn’t take him, they are FOOLS. 72% Pass completion, and 50 TOTAL TDs and 4 INTs last year. It’s hard to argue against him.

3.  New England NEEDS a QB. 31-year-old Jacobi Brissett is not the guy you want to hand your offense over to if you’re new HC Jerod Mayo. Drake Maye is the third best QB of the group, and you can look for him to make an impact in his rookie season. Don’t be surprised, however, if the Pats feel nostalgic and go for another Michigan Wolverine QB here. 

4.  Arizona is starving for a great WR since DHop left, and “Hollywood” Brown didn’t work out. Marvin Harrison Jr. is just that guy, and the Cards get lucky that the first three teams are QB needy.

5.  A lot of people think the Chargers are going to trade this pick to Minnesota, but they WON’T. The Bolts need a WR as well after letting Keenan Allen go. Herbs and Harbs will add Nabers to their young and talented group featuring Joshua Palmer and Quentin Johnston.

6.  THIS is where the Vikings make their move to get a franchise QB. The Giants don’t have an immediate need to pick right here, so they’ll take advantage of Minnesota’s inability to keep Kirk Cousins. McCarthy was 5-0 last year against ranked opponents, which is more wins than the first three QBs who were taken combined.

7.  Tennessee needs to protect it’s young QB, and what better way than by taking the best OT in the draft. Joe Ott reminds me of Joe Thomas, and he should be in the league for a long time.

8.  The Falcons need to add some youth to their defense, and without Calais Campbell, they also need to add some pressure on opposing QBs. Dallas Turner is the best Edge in the draft.

9.  Originally, I had Rome Odunze, but then changed my mind to OT Olu Fashanu. Honestly, they can’t go wrong either way. IF they’re going with Caleb Williams, they’ll need to give him another weapon. At 6’3, Odunze will be a hard target to miss, and the Bears will go “all-in” to make Williams look like a winner.

10.  The Jets are NOT taking a Tight End here. Stop it. Tyler Conklin was 13th in receiving yards for TEs with TERRIBLE QBs! The Jets need to PROTECT RODGERS and they have probably the oldest OT duo in the league. The Bears passed on Olu Fashanu, but the Jets won’t!

11.  After the Giants trade their earlier pick to the Vikings they address their pressing need on defense. Giants were 29th in sacks last year. Verse should help remedy that.

12.  Denver doesn’t have to move in the draft to get it’s QB of the future in Bo Nix. You didn’t think that they were going to ride with Jerrett Stidham or Ben DiNucci, did you? Don’t be fooled by any other position; the Broncos are going QB!

13.  The Raiders were 30th in rushing yards and 23rd in passing yards. O-Line and is a must, and LV has three viable options to choose from, but Fuaga is more balanced.

14.  TRADE ALERT! The Jags trade up with the Saints because Jacksonville wants the best CB in the draft. Mitchell should immediately help this squad that finished 26th in passing yards allowed.

15.  The Colts need more production out of the Tight Ends. Whether it’s Anthony Richardson dumping it off so he doesn’t have to run so much (and get injured) or Joe Flacco coming in to save the season, Brock Bowers will provide another great receiving option.

16.  From Washington Huskie to Seattle Seahawk, Fautanu is a guy that helps this offensive line that was 28th in rushing yards last year with one of the best RBs in the league; Kenneth Walker III. Geno Smith and Sam Howell should also be relieved with this pick.

17.  The Saints trade back and STILL get their guy! New Orleans is another team that need OL help, and JC Latham falls right into their laps. Going from Alabama to Louisiana shouldn’t be a tough move, and he’ll bookend Trevor Penning nicely.

18.  The Bengals love LSU (Burrow, Chase, etc.), and they will go back to that well after losing Tyler Boyd. Brian Thomas Jr, and Ja’Marr…the Bengals offense doesn’t lose a step.

19.  Aaron Donald is gone, but they don’t need another DT like Byron Murphy. Their current DT, Kobie Turner is legit with nine sacks last year.  I’m not saying that he’s going to the “next Donald”, but they’ll get him a great teammate by drafting Latu.

20.  The Steelers were 25th in passing yards, 25th in total yards, and 28th in points scored. Now they have all new QBs to protect (Russell Wilson and Justin Fields) and they need interior line help. Barton is a perfect fit.

21.  The Dolphins don’t have a “true Center”. They have Guards and Tackles playing Center. That’s why this pick makes so much sense.

22.  The DBs in Philly were showing their age at the end of last year. They were 31st in passing yards allowed, 30th in points allowed, and 25th in INTs. Arnold had five INTs last year, which is what the Eagles need more of.

23.  IF the Vikings still have this pick after trading with the Giants, they need to upgrade their D-Line. Murphy is the best DT in the draft, and will oddly become the second Byron Murphy on Minnesota’s defense.

24.  There are a lot of question marks on the Dallas OL, and Amarius Mims is the best player on the board at this point. 

25.  The Packers had the second fewest INTs last season with seven. It’s between Nate Wiggins and Cooper DeJean here. Cooper has seven INTs in his last two seasons and he just looks like he should be sporting a foam cheese head.

26.  The Bucs starting CBs combined for…zero INTs last year. At least Wiggins had two! Wiggins is tall, fast and agile. He just needs more confidence. 

27.  The Cards got Sean Murphy-Bunting from the Titans, and they have second-year CB, Garrett Williams. They need more help, and (OH YEAH!) Kool-Aid could be a starter right away for ‘Zona. Who DOESN’T want to see Kool-Aid in red?!

28.  After losing Wire Receivers, Stefon Diggs AND Gabe Davis, the Bills could use a big (6’2″), FAST (4.34 40) receiver like Mitchell. This is just a no-brainer. 

29.  The Lions were 27th in passing yards allowed and have already started to revamp their CB room. Chop Robinson and Aidan Hutchinson?! Oh my word! 

30.  Baltimore lost most of it’s O-line this offseason so the fact that OT Tyler Guyton is still there will be a blessing for Lamar and King Henry.

31.  Those OTs that the 49ers have aren’t getting any younger. Jordan Morgan is a solid LT with three years experience that doesn’t need to come in and be an immediate starter, which is good because of his injury history.

32.  Who ARE the Chiefs going to throw to now? If ever there was a glaring need for a WR, it comes down to the Bills and the Chiefs. Worthy had the best “Athleticism Score” and broke the 40-yard dash record at 4.21 seconds. This guy is “Flash” and deserves the red suit.
