NFL First Round Mock Draft

The start of the NFL Draft is tomorrow. I want to give my thoughts on where I believe the prospects of this draft class are going.

1. Chicago Bears (from CAR): USC QB Caleb Williams

The most obvious pick of this draft will officially happen tomorrow

2. Washington Commanders: LSU QB Jayden Daniels

The 2023 Heisman Trophy winner has been rumored to go to Washington for most of the draft season. I believe that is how it shakes out tomorrow.

3. New England Patriots: Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy

The Patriots liked what they saw McCarthy and I believe they want to have a Michigan man lead them again, just like Brady did.

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

The most obvious pick in the draft behind the Chicago pick.

5. Los Angeles Chargers: LSU WR Malik Nabers

After losing Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, the Chargers grab one of the top wide recievers in the draft.

6. New York Giants: UNC QB Drake Maye

Daniel Jones isn't a good enough quarterback to be a starter. The Giants get a top quarterback in this draft with Maye slipping.

7. Tennessee Titans: Notre Dame OT Joe Alt

New HC Bill Callahan gets some protection for his franchise quarterback.

8. Atlanta Falcons: UCLA EDGE Laiatu Latu

The Falcons are ready to contend and they take one of the best defensive players in the draft.

9. Chicago Bears: Alabama EDGE Dallas Turner

They don't need a WR here now that they have D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen so I have them taking one of the best edge-rushers in the draft to help Montez Sweat.

10. New York Jets: Alabama OT JC Latham

The Jets need to protect Aaron Rodgers and taking one of the best offensive tackles in the draft certainly helps them doing that.

11. Minnesota Vikings: Oregon QB Bo Nix

After Kirk Cousins left for Atlanta, the Vikings needed to adress their franchise quaterback needs and they get one of the older quarterbacks in this draft.

12. Denver Broncos: Washington WR Rome Odunze

The Broncos don't like any of the quarterbacks left on the board so they take the top WR available that gives them positional flexibility.

13. Las Vegas Raiders: Washington QB Michael Penix Jr.

Odunze's college quarterback goes one pick after him to a divisional rival who needs a franchise quarterback to compete with Aidan O'Connell.

14. New Orleans Saints: Penn State OT Olu Fashanu

The Saints fill up one of their pressing needs with a top-end OT.

15. Indianapolis Colts: Georgia TE Brock Bowers

The Colts need an offensive weapon for Anthony Richardson and Brock Bowers is a top-ten talent.

16. Seattle Seahawks: Washington OT Troy Fautanu

Seattle gets a Washington kid that is familiar with the staff.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Alabama CB Terrion Arnold

The Jaguars get what they need the most.

18. Cincinnatil Bengals: Oregon State OT Taliese Fuaga

The Bengals need to protect Joe Burrow at all costs.

19. Los Angeles Rams: Texas DT Byron Murphy II

The Rams get their Aaron Donald replacement (if that even exists)

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Duke C Graham Barton

The Steelers shore up their offensive line.

21. Miami Dolphins: Georgia OT Amarius Mims

The run on offensive line prospects just keeps continuing.

22. Philadelphia Eagles: Iowa CB Cooper DeJean

The Eagles get the most versatilve cornerback in the entire draft.

23. Minnesota Vikings: Florida State EDGE Jared Verse

The Vikings get their Danielle Hunter replacement.

24. Dallas Cowboys: Oregon C Jackson Powers-Johnson

The Cowboys stock up their offensive line with this pick.

25. Green Bay Packers: LSU WR Brian Thomas Jr.

Green Bay's young wide reciever room was great last year, so why not add to it?

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Penn State EDGE Chop Robinson

Tampa Bay gets an edge-rusher with a lot of potential.

27. Arizona Cardinals: Toledo CB Quinyon Mitchell

The Cardinals make their secondary better with one of the better corners in the draft.

28. Buffalo Bills: Texas WR Adonai Mitchell

The Bills get their Stefon Diggs replacement.

29. Detroit Lions: Alabama CB Kool-Aid Mckinstry

The Lions get a player that fits their mentality in Mckinstry.

30. Baltimore Ravens: Washington OT Roger Rosengarten

John Harbaugh said they need to upgrade the offensive line and this pick does that.

31. San Francisco 49ers: Oklahoma OT Tyler Guyton

The offensive line was one of the reasons they lost the Super Bowl. They adress that with this pick.

32. Kansas City Chiefs: Texas WR Xavier Worthy

The Chiefs get the wide reciever that broke the all-time 40 time and they hope it can be Tyreek Hill 2.0.
