Go here to see which reporters were most and least accurate in 2023.



1. Chicago Bears:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

“Sources say if the Bears go pass catcher with the ninth pick, it will come down to Bowers or receiver Rome Odunze.” – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

That’s if the Bears go with a pass catcher.


All signs point to the Bears drafting a quarterback No. 1 overall. – Adam Jahns, The Athletic

The only question is whether the Bears will be scared off of Caleb Williams after not having access to his medical.




2. Washington Redskins:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

It sounds like the consensus within the Redskins organization is that Jayden Daniels is the preferred choice at No. 2. – Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com

Charlie notes that not everyone is in agreement, and it’s not clear if the person most responsible for making the ultimate decision will pull the trigger on Daniels, but it seems as though we’re heading that way.


Jayden Daniels has an interest in playing elsewhere besides Washington. – Ian Rapoport, NFL Network

Rapoport said that Daniels is still the favorite to go to the Redskins. Daniels is reportedly peeved that he didn’t get a top-30 visit all to himself, but this is likely an overblown story.


Jayden Daniels is a 100-percent lock at two. – Pretty Rickey, NFL Insider

Pretty Rickey apparently has made a name for himself on Twitter for breaking free agency news, so we’ll see if he’s right about the draft.


The Redskins have significant interest in Roman Wilson. – Ken Johannsen, Hog Heaven

If so, they’ll have to take him in Round 2. It makes sense, given that Jahan Dotson was a big disappointment last year, while Curtis Samuel signed with the Bills.


The Redskins are going “all in” on a quarterback and are turning down trade offers for the No. 2 pick. – Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com

Now it’s just a matter of determining which quarterback the Redskins want. Some speculation is that it’s Jayden Daniels, but it’s anyone’s guess for now.


New owner Josh Harris is rumored to prefer J.J. McCarthy, while executives prefer Drake Maye. – , Ballsack Sports

If this is true, we’ll have to see if Harris is as dumb of an owner as David Tepper.


Jordan Morgan won’t get past the Redskins early in the second round.  – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

Pauline says the Redskins love Morgan. Pauline also lists the Ravens, Cowboys, and Chiefs as teams that like Morgan.


The Redskins are really into Drake Maye. – Mike Sando, The Athletic

This would be perfect for the Patriots, who prefer Jayden Daniels.




3. New England Patriots:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Patriots have turned down trade offers for the No. 3 pick. – Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com

New England has said it is open for business, but only if it’s offered an unbelievable deal. It sounds like the Patriots are set on taking a quarterback at No. 3.


The Patriots are most likely to stay at No. 3. – Mike Reiss, ESPN

Why would they eschew a franchise quarterback when they don’t have one?


The Patriots want Jayden Daniels the most of all the quarterbacks. – Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com

Unfortunately for the Patriots, Daniels could be snatched off the board at No. 2 by the Redskins.




4. Minnesota Vikings:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

Teams around the NFL believe the Cardinals and Vikings have a deal in place for the No. 4 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. – Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com

Charlie notes that the trade hasn’t been made yet because the Cardinals are waiting to see if another team sweetens the pot. However, the Vikings have more ammo than anyone else to trade up.


The Vikings “really, really” like Byron Murphy. – Darren Wolfson, KSTP

The problem is that the Vikings will have to use their first pick on a quarterback, given that they have none.


The Vikings are aiming to trade up for Drake Maye. – Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Network

To do so, they’ll need the Redskins to pass on him and the Patriots to be dumb enough to eschew landing a franchise quarterback.




5. Los Angeles Chargers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

“I’ve consistently heard that the Chargers will draft a tackle or trade down.” – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

So much for the Chargers replacing Keenan Allen and Mike Williams!


“Wide receiver is an obvious hole, but it is offensive tackle that has continued to come up when speaking to sources about the Chargers.” – Jordan Reid, ESPN

The Chargers are expected to select either Marvin Harrison Jr. or Malik Nabers, but not according to this ESPN report. The suggestion is that the Chargers would either select Joe Alt or trade back for a lesser tackle.


Malik Nabers has been shopping for a house in Los Angeles. –

While this is common practice for high-end draft prospects, it’s a sign that Nabers’ meetings with the Chargers have gone well.


Jim Harbaugh told the media that he can’t wait to build up the offensive line. –

The Chargers are set at left tackle, but they were very weak at guard and right tackle last year.


The Chargers appear to be in the business of drafting a receiver. – Jeff Miller, LA Times

I would think so after they cut Mike Williams and traded Keenan Allen. Malik Nabers seems like the obvious choice, but perhaps the Chargers like Rome Odunze more.




6. New York Giants:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Giants covet Drake Maye. – Jordan Raanan, ESPN

The Giants should be coveting upgrades at every position because they have one of the worst rosters in the NFL.


The Giants have received lots of interest for their No. 6 pick. – Jordan Raanan, ESPN

The general manager said he was surprised about the high amount of interest in the sixth pick. Of course, he could be lying.


Adam Schefter said he “doesn’t see” the Giants drafting a quarterback at No. 6, but could see them drafting a quarterback early. –

This makes the most sense. The Giants have a horrible roster and aren’t in a position to draft a quarterback who isn’t elite.


Trey Benson is drawing heavy interest from the Giants. – Aaron Wilson, Houston Chronicle

The Giants desperately need a running back to replace Saquon Barkley. They could take him in the second round.


There’s talk that the Giants will draft J.J. McCarthy at No. 6. – Connor Hughes, SNY

If so, they haven’t learned their lesson from the Daniel Jones debacle.


If the situation presents itself, the Giants will draft a quarterback this April. – Jordan Raanan, ESPN

If so, the Giants will be reaching for a quarterback at No. 6 with the top three signal-callers off the board. This is exactly what happened in 2019, and the Giants have paid the price. Reaching for a quarterback without addressing the offensive line seems foolish.




7. Tennessee Titans:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

No rumors reported as of yet.



8. Atlanta Falcons:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

Laiatu Latu is now the favorite to be the Falcons’ No. 8 pick. –

Charlie Campbell reported that Latu passed his medical, which was seen as a problem for him throughout the pre-draft process.




10. New York Jets:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Jets’ decision at No. 10 will come down to Brock Bowers or a tackle. – Rich Cimini, ESPN

Cimini cites that this is contingent on the top three receivers being off the board.


“No team I spoke with believes Brock Bowers will get out of the top 10.” – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

The Jets draft at No. 10, and they make so much sense as a team that will draft Bowers.


The Jets are inclined to draft Brock Bowers or Rome Odunze at No. 10. – Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com

Tackle is no longer a priority in the wake of the Tyron Smith signing, so the Jets will need to obtain another play-maker for Aaron Rodgers.




11. Arizona Cardinals:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

Teams around the NFL believe the Cardinals and Vikings have a deal in place for the No. 4 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. – Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com

Charlie notes that the trade hasn’t been made yet because the Cardinals are waiting to see if another team sweetens the pot. However, the Vikings have more ammo than anyone else to trade up.


The Cardinals prefer Malik Nabers to Marvin Harrison Jr., but wish to trade down. – Mike Jurecki, Arizona Football Daily

The plan is apparently to draft Nabers unless the team can move down, perhaps trading with the Vikings or Broncos.


The Cardinals have announced that they are open for business for the No. 4 overall pick. –

There are rumors floating around that the Giants want to draft a quarterback, so the Vikings are a likely team to move up that much.




12. Denver Broncos:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Broncos have a good amount of interest in Jaylen Wright. – Chris Tomasson, Denver Gazette

Denver doesn’t have a huge need for a running back, but it hosted Wright on a top-30 visit.


The Broncos love J.J. McCarthy, and are real players to trade up for him. – Pretty Rickey, NFL Insider

Pretty Rickey apparently has made a name for himself on Twitter for breaking free agency news, so we’ll see if he’s right about the draft. In this case, it would make sense for Denver to move up for McCarthy.


Sean Payton desperately wants to trade up for a quarterback. – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

Denver would be better suited to trading down rather than selecting Christian Ponder or Blaine Gabbert. Sorry, wrong year.


“I bet if George Paton had his way Laiatu Latu would be the pick at 12. Pretty certain Sean Payton wants to do something different.” – Cecil Lammey, DenverSports.com

The Broncos are desperate for a pass rusher, and they hosted Latu for a top-30 visit. However, Sean Payton is desperate for a quarterback.


The picks the Broncos acquired for Jerry Jeudy makes it more likely that they will move up for a quarterback. – Nick Kosmider, The Athletic

Denver didn’t get much, but it makes sense. The Broncos are desperate for a quarterback.




13. Las Vegas Raiders:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Raiders are strongly considering Michael Penix, a tackle and a cornerback at No. 13. – Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com

There’s also a possibility that the Raiders try to trade up from the second round for Penix. Charlie specifically mentions Quinyon Mitchell as a player the Raiders like.


Antonio Pierce wants to trade up for a quarterback, but GM Tom Telesco wants to stick with Gardner Minshew and Aidan O’Connell. – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

Perhaps the two men can compromise and trade down for a quarterback.


Antonio Pierce told the media that he wants a “damn runner” at quarterback. –

This tracks with defensive-minded coaches liking off-schedule quarterbacks, but one has to wonder why the Raiders didn’t make a play for Justin Fields.


The Raiders will be hyperfocused on quarterbacks at the combine. – Vincent Bonsignore, Las Vegas Review-Journal

The problem for the Raiders is that they are not in a position to draft a top-three quarterbacks, so they may have to wait until Round 2 unless they reach.




14. New Orleans Saints:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

No rumors reported as of yet.



15. Indianapolis Colts:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

No rumors reported as of yet.



16. Seattle Seahawks:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

Seahawks GM John Schneider told the media that the Seahawks have a “lot to figure out” regarding the offensive line. –

Guard and center are huge needs for the Seahawks, so much so that they could draft a player at the position at No. 16.




17. Jacksonville Jaguars:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

No rumors reported as of yet.



18. Cincinnati Bengals:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

“Keep an eye on Cincinnati” as a spot for Washington WR Jalen McMillan. – Eric Edholm, NFL media

McMillan has taken plenty of visits, one of which was to Cincinnati. The Bengals need receiving help with Tyler Boyd gone and Tee Higgins franchised.




19. Los Angeles Rams:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Rams have flown to Happy Valley to have a private meeting with Chop Robinson. – Jordan Schultz, Schultz Report

These late meetings tend to tip the hand. The Rams obviously need pass-rushing help.




20. Pittsburgh Steelers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Steelers love Brian Thomas Jr. – Dane Brugler, The Athletic

Brugler says that No. 20 could be Thomas’ floor.


“Speculation from people familiar with the Steelers is that Graham Barton will likely be the pick at 20.” – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

Barton is projected mostly as a guard, but he can also play center, which would fill a huge need for the Steelers.




21. Miami Dolphins:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Dolphins have met extensively with Laiatu Latu. Don’t be shocked if he’s the pick at No. 21. – Simon Clancy, Dolphins reporter

Charlie Campbell reported that Latu has some medical issues that could drop him to Round 2, but if the Dolphins are comfortable with his health, then they could certainly draft him at No. 21.




22. Philadelphia Eagles:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Eagles could target a running back in the NFL Draft. – Sal Paolantonio, Pat McAfee Show

Hopefully not too highly because the Eagles signed Saquon Barkley to a big-money contract, but a mid-round pick would make sense.




24. Dallas Cowboys:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

Jordan Morgan won’t get past the Redskins early in the second round.  – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

Pauline says the Redskins love Morgan. Pauline also lists the Ravens, Cowboys, and Chiefs as teams that like Morgan.


Jordan Morgan has been one of the players most commonly associated with the Cowboys throughout the pre-draft process. – Daniel Flick, Cowboys Country

Tyron Smith is gone, so a tackle like Morgan would make a lot of sense.




25. Green Bay Packers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

No rumors reported as of yet.



26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

No rumors reported as of yet.



28. Buffalo Bills:

29. Detroit Lions:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

No rumors reported as of yet.



30. Baltimore Ravens:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

Pauline says the Redskins love Morgan. Pauline also lists the Ravens, Cowboys, and Chiefs as teams that like Morgan.




31. San Francisco 49ers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

No rumors reported as of yet.



32. Kansas City Chiefs:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

The Chiefs are expected to draft a left tackle in the first round. – Pretty Rickey, NFL Insider

Pretty Rickey apparently has made a name for himself on Twitter for breaking free agency news, so we’ll see if he’s right about the draft. Andy Reid is no stranger to drafting blockers, so a left tackle would be a logical choice at No. 32.


Jordan Morgan won’t get past the Redskins early in the second round.  – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

Pauline says the Redskins love Morgan. Pauline also lists the Ravens, Cowboys, and Chiefs as teams that like Morgan.




33. Carolina Panthers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors

Xavier Legette told the media he’s visited with the Panthers four times. –

I don’t know how that’s possible, but if it’s true, the Panthers obviously have huge interest in Legette, who would fill a huge area of need.


“People I’ve spoken to believe the Panthers atop round 2 are a possibility for Mike Sainristil.” – Tony Pauline, Sportskeeda

The Michigan cornerback’s stock is on the rise, and he’s expected to be drafted early on Day 2.
