LIVE TRACKER: 2024 NFL draft Selections (Round 1)

1. Chicago Bears: Caleb Williams, QB, USC

Chicago traded Justin Fields with the intention of getting their quarterback of the future in 2024, and they have him in Williams who starred at USC the past two seasons, including winning the Heisman Trophy in 2022.

2. Washington Commanders: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Washington follows Chicago by taking the most recent Heisman Trophy winner, Jayden Daniels out of LSU, who will replace Sam Howell in DC after he was traded to Seattle.

3. New England Patriots: Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

Three picks, three quarterbacks as New England opts not to make a trade and instead selects Maye out of UNC. The last time three quarterbacks went in the first three picks was 2021, when New England took Mac Jones. They’ll hope for better luck this time around.

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

Arizona didn’t need to make it four quarterbacks in a row, instead getting a massive weapon for Kyler Murray in the former of Marvin Harrison Jr, an electric wideout who has All-Pro potential if used correctly in Arizona.

5. Los Angeles Chargers: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

The Chargers snag some protection for star quarterback Justin Herbert, adding the hulking tackle from Notre Dame at No. 5 overall.

6. New York Giants: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

LSU has a second player selected in the first six picks as Nabers heads to the Big Apple. The Giants won’t have Daniel Jones healthy to start the campaign, but they opt to give him a weapon for when he returns rather than going with a quarterback to bridge the gap.

7. Tennessee Titans: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

Will Levis badly needs some protection, and Latham is a massive human who should slot in at left tackle and help protect Levis’ blindside for the Titans.

8. Atlanta Falcons: Michael Penix Jr, QB, Washington

The first three quarterbacks were widely expected, but most felt Notre Dame’s JJ McCarthy would be next. Instead Atlanta goes for the left-handed gunslinger Penix, who racked up huge numbers at Washington during their magical 2023 season.

9. Chicago Bears: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Back-to-back Washington stars as Penix’s top receiver option, Rome Odunze, will now be catching passes from his former Pac-12 rival in Caleb Williams. Chicago’s offense is getting rebuilt one piece at a time in this draft.

10. Minnesota Vikings (via New York Jets): JJ McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Minnesota moved up one spot to ensure they don’t miss out on the quarterback party, snagging McCarthy to help replace Kirk Cousins for the Vikings.

11. New York Jets (via Minnesota Vikings): Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State

The streak of offensive players runs to 11 with the Jets taking Fashanu, the third offensive tackle off the board.

12. Denver Broncos: Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

Nix becomes the fifth quarterback taken in the first 12 picks, and the third from the former Pac-12 conference. He heads to Denver as they look to move past the short lived Russell Wilson era and see if Nix and Sean Payton can gel.

13. Las Vegas Raiders: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

One year after taking tight end Michael Mayer in the first round, the Raiders do it again with dynamic athlete Brock Bowers out of Georgia. The Bulldogs star becomes the thirteenth straight offensive player picked to begin the 2024 NFL draft.

14. New Orleans Saints: Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

The offense train continues as Fuaga becomes the fourth offensive tackle taken, and he will head to New Orleans to help protect Derek Carr and Alvin Kamara in the Big Easy.

15. Indianapolis Colts: Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

The first defensive player is finally off the board at pick No. 15 as the Colts add versatile pass rusher Laiatu Latu out of UCLA.

16. Seattle Seahawks: Byron Murphy, DT, Texas

Back to back defensive players now as Seattle bolsters an already strong defensive unit by adding Murphy, a strong and twitchy defensive lineman who can develop into a solid three-down tackle in the right scheme.

17. Minnesota Vikings (via Jacksonville Jaguars): Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

Minnesota makes their second trade of the day, moving up six spots to ensure they land dynamic pass rusher Dallas Turner out of Alabama. Turner becomes the second player from the Crimson Tide picked in the first round, after JC Latham.

18. Cincinnati Bengals: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

Cincinnati broke up the brief run of defensive players by taking the fifth offensive tackle of the first round, Amarius Mims, who will now be tasked with keeping star quarterback Joe Burrow healthy.

19. Los Angeles Rams: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

For the first time since 2013 the Los Angeles Rams have taken a defensive player in the first round. The last one was Aaron Donald, and while that’s an unfair comparison to levy on Verse – he has the juice to be a big time player for Sean McVay’s squad.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Troy Fautanu, OT, Washington

Three Huskies have now been selected among the first 20 picks of the NFL draft, with Fautanu joining Penix and Odunze in the league. The Steelers get themselves an incredibly versatile offensive lineman who could play all five spots along the line in the Steel City.

21. Miami Dolphins: Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

Robinson is an explosive athlete who is a bit raw, but if Miami can harness his athleticism he could develop into a star pass rusher off the edge.

22. Philadelphia Eagles: Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

Mitchell becomes the first defensive back off the board, joining an Eagles team hoping to get back to the Super Bowl out of the NFC.

23. Jacksonville Jaguars (via Minnesota Vikings): Brian Thomas Jr, WR, LSU

Thomas Jr was a third team All-American, and he becomes the third LSU Tiger taken and provides another weapon for Trevor Lawrence to utilize in Florida.

24. Detroit Lions (via Dallas Cowboys): Terrion Arnold, DB, Alabama

The Lions take the second defensive back of the evening in Arnold, a highly productive player who will reunite with fellow Alabama defensive back Brian Branch who Detroit picked last year.

25. Green Bay Packers: Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

Green Bay opts to make a pick to keep Jordan Love safe, selecting the seventh offensive tackle of the first round in Morgan.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Graham Barton, C, Duke

Tampa Bay picks up the first interior offensive lineman of the draft in Barton, a former lacrosse player who developed into a powerhouse center for the Blue Devils.

27. Arizona Cardinals: Darius Robinson, EDGE, Missouri

Robinson gives Arizona an improved interior pass rush, and he joins Marvin Harrison Jr in the Cardinals’ draft class.

28. Kansas City Chiefs (via Buffalo Bills): Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

The selection of Worthy represents the most offensive players taken in the first round of all time, and it’s set by the guy who broke the 40 yard record at the combine last month. Kansas City loves speed on the outside, and Patrick Mahomes should help this young man shine right away.

29. Dallas Cowboys (via Detroit Lions): Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

Dallas gets a replacement for Tyron Smith in Guyton, a raw but very high upside tackle – the NFL record eighth in the first round.

30. Baltimore Ravens: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

Baltimore opts to bolster their secondary with Wiggins, a dynamic defensive back out of Clemson. His length and speed are special, and if he can grow in run support he has elite upside.

31. San Francisco 49ers: Ricky Pearsall, WR, Florida

Pearsall has excellent hands and is a clean route runner, and he gives coach Kyle Shanahan another weapon who should adjust well to his system.

32. Carolina Panthers (via Buffalo Bills): Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

Legette becomes the seventh wide receiver off the record – tying an NFL draft record – and he’s a big weapon in the AJ Brown mold who gives Bryce Young a sturdy weapon as he looks to build off an up and down rookie season.
