View All Mocks

1. Bears: Caleb Williams, QB, USC

This seems like a foregone conclusion at this point. Only question is if Williams can be the first successful Bears QB in seemingly forever.

2. Commanders: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

With Kingsbury in at OC for the Commanders, I think Daniels makes the most sense as a system fit and will ultimately be the pick. All of the top QBs are talented and QB fit is more important than most people give it credit for.

3. Broncos: Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

The Broncos trade 12, 136, 2025 Rd 1 and 2025 Rd 3 to the Patriots for 3.
The Patriots realize their roster isn't ready to compete and decide to move back and get extra draft capital next year and on the flip side Sean Payton is not afraid to spend future draft capital and wants his QB.

4. Cardinals: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

With Marvin Harrison Jr still on the board the Cardinals will not entertain trade offers here and take the best player in the draft.

5. Chargers: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

With Alt still on the board and the Vikings not desperate to move up, the Chargers take an elite OT prospect. Alt and a healthy Slater gives the Chargers an incredible OT duo.

6. Giants: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

The Giants lack a game breaking WR and that's exactly what Nabers and his explosiveness would provide.

7. Vikings: J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

The Vikings trade 11 and 23 for 7 and a 2025 2nd. Its a steep price, but the Vikings can't let the Raiders jump them. Thus, the Vikings get their QB. McCarthy needs to learn to throw with touch, but its a good offensive system with good WRs so he should have early success.

8. Falcons: Dallas Turner, OLB, Alabama

The Falcons absolutely need pass rush help and I personally think Turner is the best in the class given Latu's injury history.

9. Seahawks: Tallies Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

The Seahawks trade 16, 81, and 118 to the Bears for 9.
The Bears are is desperate need of draft capital so trading down makes sense. The Seahawks jump in front of the Jets to make sure they don't lose out on the OL they want. Fuaga could push Lucas at RT and if that doesn't happen he should start at OG immediately.

10. Cowboys: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

The Cowboys trade 24, 56, and a 2025 Rd 3 for 10.
The Cowboys finally make their offseason move and get another stud WR to pair with Lamb.

11. Titans: J.C. Latham, OT, Alabama

The Titans moved back and still get a mammoth OT to anchor the right side of their o-line.

12. Patriots: Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State

The Patriots moved back and still take an elite OT prospect. Fashanu seems to be slipping in mock drafts, but I'm not sure I buy that will happen in the actual draft.

13. Raiders: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

Its still a little early for Penix or Nix and I couldn't find a trade back option so the Raiders stick it out and take the CB with the most upside in the draft.

14. Saints: Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU

The Saints are a sneaky WR-needy team. Thomas Jr's deep speed is a great compliment to Olave's ability to work underneath.

15. Colts: Cooper DeJean, S/CB, Iowa

Bring all the Iowa stars to Indiana! In all seriousness though, DeJean's versatility and upside is too much for the Colts to pass up.

16. Bears: Byron Murphy II, DT, Texas

This is who I would've had the Bears draft at 9 anyway so this is a steal. Murphy and Gervon Dexter finally give the Bears some hope at DT.

17. Buccaneers: Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

The Bucs trade 26 and 57 to the Jags for 17 and 116. The Bucs have lost some star power at CB recently and Mitchell comes in to revitalize that room.

18. Bengals: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Bowers falls right into the Bengals laps and this is personally my favorite prospect/team pairing in the draft.

19. Rams: Jared Verse, DE, Florida State

With Aaron Donald retired, the Rams are an easy choice for a DT. However, with Murphy gone I think the Rams just take the best pass rusher left.

20. Steelers: Graham Barton, G/OT, Duke

I think the Barton hype is real as his versatility to possibly play all 5 spots is pushing him up draft boards.

21. Dolphins: Troy Fautanu, G/OT, Washington

The Dolphins need IOL help and that's likely where Fautanu ends up, but he might have a chance to stick at OT too. That versatility makes him worth a mid-1st round pick.

22. Eagles: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

The Eagles need to get younger at CB. Ringo might develop, but they would still need someone opposite him. Wiggins is light but that doesn't seem to scare the Eagles.

23. Titans: Laiatu Latu, DE, UCLA

With the extra pick they got the Titans can afford to take a risk. Latu has medical issues, but if not for that and age he'd be the top EDGE in the class.

24. Jets: Jer'Zhan Newton, DT, Illinois

Kinlaw is a wildcard free agent signing and this is still a Saleh defense so Newton is too enticing to pass up at this point.

25. Panthers: Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

The Panthers trade 33 and 65 to the Packers for 25 and 126.

The Panthers need size and speed at WR and Mitchell might be the last prospect to offer both with versatility to his route tree. The Panthers jump some other WR needy teams to get their guy.

26. Jaguars: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

The Jags take a CB to pair with Campbell. McKinstry should honestly go higher than this, people seem to have forgotten how good he is.

27. Cardinals: Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

Morgan is an elite mover who needs to refine his technique. He may kick inside for Arizona which is where they need the most help.

28. Raiders: Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

The Raiders trade 44, 77, and a 2025 5th to move to this pick.
With this pick, the Raiders can't wait any longer and get their QB. They also get him in the 1st so he has a 5th year option.

29. Lions: Darius Robinson, DT, Missouri

This might be a bit of a reach, but its clear that Davenport and Cominsky aren't long term answers for the Lions. Robinson has the body type for the Lions, can play the run and offers some pass rush upside.

30. Ravens: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

30. Ravens: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

The Ravens manage to sit back and have Mims fall to them. He fits the Ravens type of OT perfectly and if he develops with experience he could be the top OT in the draft.

31. 49ers: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

Guyton gives the 49ers a developmental OT to shore up the right side of the offensive line.

32. Chiefs: Ennis Rakestraw Jr., CB, Missouri

Most people seem to think that Rakestraw will kick inside but I think if he was healthier pre-draft his athleticism would've been enough to show he can play outside. Either way the Chiefs would like the versatility.

33. Packers: Chop Robinson, OLB/DE, Penn State

Chop might be a little on the light side for the Packers but he fits everything else they do. He could fill in for Enagbare this year and eventually take over for Preston. Long-term the Packers would have 3 young pass rushers with upside for Hafley's defense.

34. Patriots: Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

Coleman gives the Patriots a body type they don't have currently in their WR room. His 40 wasn't great but his change of direction is for his size. He's a great value at this point.

35. Cardinals: T.J. Tampa, CB, Iowa State

Tampa is an outside CB that will give the Cardinals some length at the position, which they have sorely lacked.

36. Commanders: Marshawn Kneeland, DE, Western Michigan

Kneeland has been a fast riser and fits a big need for the Commanders.

37. Chargers: Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

Franklin gives the Chargers a deep threat to team up with Herbert's huge arm.

38. Titans: Andru Phillips, CB, Kentucky

Phillips has some inside/outside versatility to offer the Titans.

39. Panthers: Zach Frazier, C, West Virginia

The Panthers addressed OG in free agency, but C is still a hole. Frazier is more polished than JPJ and thus gets the nod here.

40. Commanders: Christian Haynes, G, Connecticut

Haynes is a powerful OG who should find a starting job at left or right guard early on.

41. Packers: Edgerrin Cooper, LB, Texas A&M

The Packers NEED another LB and Cooper makes the most sense given that Gutey sounded like he wanted a clone of Quay.

42. Texans: Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan

Jenkins is being slept on in my opinion. He's solid against the run already and might have more juice in the pass rush than people think.

43. Falcons: Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

The Falcons take a Georgia player! This is a great fit for Ladd and the Falcons. He gives them a shiftier WR to work opposite London and is an upgrade over Mooney or Moore. McConkey's ability to get open will allow him to thrive with Kirk Cousins at QB.

44. Bills: Cooper Beebe, G, Kansas State

While its not the flashiest pick, Beebe is a rock solid player that should start immediately for the Bills and help shore up one of their bigger weaknesses.

45. Saints: Braden Fiske, DT, Florida State

DT is a huge need for the Saints. Fiske blew up the combine, but this feels like a comfortable draft range for him.

46. Colts: Payton Wilson, LB, N.C. State

Wilson can come in and be a replacement for EJ Speed. I think he's a bit overrated, but mid-2nd round makes a ton of sense for him.

47. Rams: Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

The Rams trade 52, 154, and 213 for this pick. With Nix still sitting there, the Rams make their move. Who knows what is going on with Stetson but Nix has better traits. He's not a great deep ball threat, but that should still work with McVay calling the shots.

48. Jaguars: Ricky Pearsall, WR, Florida

Pearsall offers an upgrade to Zay Jones for the Jags. He can play all over the field which should pair well with Davis and Kirk.

49. Bengals: Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson

The Bengals need some younger talent to develop on the defensive line.

50. Eagles: Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

Worthy gives the Eagles an elite deep threat to pair with AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith.

51. Steelers: Tyler Nubin, S, Minnesota

Nubin didn't test all that well, but pairing him with Minkah will help hide some of his athletic shortcomings. Otherwise he is a rock solid football player.

52. Giants: Prospect not selected

52. Giants: Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU

Suamataia is a project on the offensive line, but its one worth taking on at this point.

53. Eagles: Brandon Dorlus, DT, Oregon

Dorlus is a bit undersized but he can get after the passer. He should be able to find a home as a rotational player in Philly.

54. Browns: Roman Wilson, WR, Michigan

Wilson is a quick and explosive WR. Elijah Moore just isn't that good so Wilson gives the Browns another crack at filling that role.

55. Dolphins: Michael Hall Jr., DT, Ohio State

After losing Wilkins, the Dolphins have a hole to fill. Hall Jr is rising up draft boards after weighing more than expected. He needs time but could be the best DT is this draft.

56. Jets: Blake Fisher, OT, Notre Dame

Fisher will be a swing tackle to start for the Jets but should ultimately be the future at one of the OT spots.

57. Jaguars: Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

I saw somewhere that the NFL doesn't think Powers-Johnson is ready to start right away, thus the slide down draft boards. However in Jacksonville he could learn behind Morse for a year then take over as Morse could be a cap casualty next offseason.

58. Packers: Javon Bullard, CB/S, Georgia

Hafley talked about wanting a S to be interchangeable with each other and with a slot. This goes against what even some Packers media seems to think (getting a box safety). Nobody fits that description like Bullard who played both Star (slot) and S for UGA.

59. Texans: Mike Sainristil, CB, Michigan

Sainristil is a slot only but he could be one of the best in the league.

60. Bills: Javon Baker, WR, Central Florida

Baker is a forgotten about WR in this class at times who is finally getting attention. For what the Bills need it was between him and Burton from Bama and Baker is just better.

61. Lions: Christian Mahogany, G, Boston College

Mahogany can come in and compete at the open OG spot the Lions currently have.

62. Ravens: Ja'Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

Polk is a super versatile WR that played inside and outside for Washington which will help him find an early role. It will also allow Monken to get creative.

63. 49ers: Kamari Lassiter, CB, Georgia

Lassiter didn't run very well (supposedly) which may push him inside, but a team should give him a chance to stick outside first. Getting him here after Rakestraw went in the 1st is a steal.

64. Chiefs: Patrick Paul, OT, Houston

Paul could possible compete at LT early enough to push Morris, or worst case he can sit a year or two until the Chiefs can get out of the Jawaan contract (post June-1 '25 at the earliest).
