2024 NFL Mock Draft: Pick Analysis

1. Chicago Bears: Caleb Williams, QB, USC

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Caleb Williams, QB, USC

  • Best Bet: Draft Pick Parlay Williams 1, Daniels 2, Maye 3, Harrison Jr. 4 (-170)

Who calls the shots in the Bears draft room?

GM Ryan Poles (third year) has final say over roster construction. Poles was previously with the Chiefs, working under GM Brett Veach as Director of Player Personnel.

2. Washington Commanders: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

  • Best Bet: Draft Pick Parlay Williams 1, Daniels 2, Maye 3, Harrison Jr. 4 (-170)

Who calls the shots in the Commanders draft room?

GM Adam Peters (first year) has final say over the personnel decisions. He joins the team after seven years with the 49ers, most recently as John Lynch’s Assistant GM. He previously served as the Broncos’ Director of College Scouting under John Elway. HC Dan Quinn will likely have significant input in selecting defensive players, as he’s always had strong preferences on who fits his scheme.

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

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

  • Best Bet: Drake Maye No. 3 Pick (-240)

Who calls the shots in the Patriots draft room?

The Patriots have not hired a general manager to take over for Bill Belichick, who held those duties throughout his tenure. That appears to leave Eliot Wolf in control of the roster. Alonzo Highsmith, who worked with Wolf in Green Bay, was also hired this offseason to play a significant role. Matt Groh, who has been in the team’s scouting department for 14 years, will also have a say in the process.

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

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Marvin Harrison Jr, WR, Ohio State

  • Best Bet: Marvin Harrison No. 4 pick (-250)

Who calls the shots in the Cardinals draft room?

GM Monti Ossenfort (second year) likely has final say over the Cardinals roster, though the team has not officially confirmed this. Ossenfort is a former Director of College Scouting (Patriots) and Director of Player Personnel (Titans), and his Assistant GM is former Lions Director of College Scouting Dave Sears.

TRADE: 5. Minnesota Vikings: J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

  • Trade: Los Angeles Receives Picks 11 and 23. Minnesota Receives Pick 5.
  • Best Bet: J.J. McCarthy No. 5 pick (+330)

Who calls the shots in the Vikings draft room?

GM Kwesi Adofo-Mensah (third year) has final say over the roster. He has a background in analytics and previously worked under Andrew Berry in Cleveland. Since Adofo-Mensah’s background is not in scouting, Director of College Scouting Mike Sholiton likely plays a significant role in the draft.

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

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

  • Best Bet: Malik Nabers No. 7 pick (+160)

Who calls the shots in the Giants draft room?

GM Joe Schoen (third year) has final say over roster decisions. He spent the previous five seasons as the Assistant GM to Brandon Beane in Buffalo.

7. Tennessee Titans: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

  • Best Bet: Titans position of first player selected offensive line (-320)

Who calls the shots in the Titans draft room?

GM Ran Carthon (second year) has final say over the roster. Carthon was previously the 49ers’ Director of Player Personnel. Director of College Scouting Jon Salge (eighth year) will likely be heavily involved as well. The firing of Mike Vrabel was perceived to be due to, at least in part, a clash with Carthon over roster construction. The hiring of first-year HC Brian Callahan likely gives more control to Carthon.

8. Atlanta Falcons: Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

  • Best Bet: Dallas Turner No. 8 pick (+165)

Who calls the shots in the Falcons draft room?

GM Terry Fontenot (third year) has final say over the roster and may actually have more control than in the previous two seasons as Fontenot now reports directly to owner Arthur Blank. CEO Rich McKay (Atlanta’s former GM) is no longer involved in day-to-day football operations.

9. Chicago Bears: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

  • Best Bet: Rome Odunze No. 9 pick (+350)

10. New York Jets: Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

  • Best Bet: Taliese Fuaga No. 10 pick (+600)

Who calls the shots in the Jets draft room?

GM Joe Douglas (sixth year) has final say over personnel decisions.

TRADE: 11. Los Angeles Chargers: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

  • Best Bet: JC Latham draft position under 12.5 (-280)

Who calls the shots in the Chargers draft room?

It’s unclear who has the final say over the roster, though it is assumed that power belongs to Harbaugh (first year). However, the draft will likely be run primarily by GM Joe Hortiz (first year), who was the Ravens’ longtime Director of College Scouting and, most recently, their Director of Player Personnel.

TRADE: 12. Cincinnati Bengals: Byron Murphy II, DL, Texas

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State (Commanders)

  • Trade: Denver Receives Picks 18 and 49. Cincinnati Receives Picks 12, 121, and 136.
  • Best Bet: Bengals position of first player selected DL/EDGE (+250)

Who calls the shots in the Bengals draft room?

Director of Player Personnel Duke Tobin has final say over roster construction.

13. Las Vegas Raiders: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

  • Best Bet: Raiders position of first player selected cornerback (+225)

Who calls the shots in the Raiders draft room?

GM Tom Telesco (first year) has final say over the roster. He previously spent 11 years in the same role with the Chargers.

14. New Orleans Saints: Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

  • Best Bet: Saints position of first player selected offensive line (-400)

Who calls the shots in the Saints draft room?

GM Mickey Loomis likely has final say, though the power dynamic has been unclear since the departure of Sean Payton (who previously had final say). Since Loomis does not have a background in scouting, Assistant GM and Director of College Personnel Jeff Ireland likely has substantial input in the draft.

15. Indianapolis Colts: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

  • Best Bet: Brock Bowers to be selected by Colts (+300)

Who calls the shots in the Colts draft room?

GM Chris Ballard (eighth year) has final say over roster construction.

TRADE: 16. Philadelphia Eagles: Troy Fautanu, OL, Washington

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Troy Fautanu, OL, Washington (Seahawks)

  • Trade: Seattle Receives Picks 22 and 50. Philadelphia Receives Picks 16, 81, and 192.
  • Best Bet: Eagles position of first player selected offensive lineman (+105)

Who calls the shots in the Eagles draft room?

GM Howie Roseman (13th year) has final say over the roster. Roseman has held the title of General Manager and/or Executive Vice President of Football Operations since 2010. However, he did not control the roster during Andy Reid‘s and Chip Kelly’s tenures. Roseman gained full control of personnel decisions in 2016.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Cooper DeJean, CB, Iowa

  • Best Bet: Quinyon Mitchell second cornerback selected (+155)

Who calls the shots in the Jaguars draft room?

GM Trent Baalke (fourth year) and HC Doug Pederson (second year) supposedly share control of the roster. The Jaguars have not publicly stated who has the final say, although it’s likely Baalke considering he participated in the hiring of Pederson and has a background in scouting.

TRADE: 18. Denver Broncos: Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Byron Murphy II, DL, Texas (Bengals)

  • Best Bet: Broncos position of first player selected DL/EDGE (+190)

Who Calls the Shots in the Broncos Draft Room?

GM George Paton (fourth year) has final say over personnel decisions. Prior to joining Denver, he spent the majority of his career as Rick Spielman’s right-hand man in Minnesota and Miami. It is assumed that Sean Payton has significant power as well, though the Broncos have stated Paton remains in control of the roster.

19. Los Angeles Rams: Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

  • Best Bet: Rams position of first player selected wide receiver (+350)

Who calls the shots in the Rams draft room?

GM Les Snead (13th year) has final say over personnel decisions.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Graham Barton, OL, Duke

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

  • Best Bet: Graham Barton draft position under 21.5 (-230)

Who calls the shots in the Steelers draft room?

GM Omar Khan (second year) took over last year from Kevin Colbert, who ran the team for 23 years. Khan likely has final say over the roster, though it is a collaborative effort with Assistant GM Andy Weidl (second year) and Mike Tomlin. Khan has been with Pittsburgh since 2001, but his background is in the administrative side of the team. Weidl joined the team from the Eagles, where he was Vice President of Player Personnel and has extensive experience in scouting.

21. Miami Dolphins: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State (Cardinals)

  • Best Bet: Dolphins position of first player selected DL/EDGE (+155)

Who Calls the Shots in the Dolphins Draft Room?

GM Chris Grier (eighth year) has final say over personnel decisions but accepts significant input from Mike McDaniel.

TRADE: 22. Seattle Seahawks: Cooper DeJean, CB, Iowa

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Brian Thomas Jr, WR, LSU (Bills)

  • Best Bet: Seahawks position of first player selected cornerback (+190)

Who calls the shots in the Seahawks draft room?

GM John Schneider is entering his 15th year in this role, but it will be his first with final say over the roster since Pete Carroll previously held that power. Schneider does not have a background in college scouting, so Senior Director of Player Personnel Matt Berry and Director of College Scouting Aaron Hineline likely have strong voices in the draft room.

TRADE: 23. Los Angeles Chargers: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

  • Best Bet: Nate Wiggins draft position under 26.5 (+190)

24. Dallas Cowboys: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

  • Best Bet: Cowboys position of first player selected offensive line (-235)

Who calls the shots in the Cowboys draft room?

Director of Player Personnel Stephen Jones effectively acts as the general manager with significant input from VP of Player Personnel Will McClay. Obviously, owner Jerry Jones has been known to step in and make decisions as well.

25. Green Bay Packers: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Graham Barton, OL, Duke

  • Best Bet: Packers position of first player selected offensive line (-170)

Who calls the shots in the Packers draft room?

GM Brian Gutekunst (sixth year) has final say over the roster, but Gutekunst, Director of Football Operations Russ Ball, and HC Matt LaFleur all report directly to President/CEO Mark Murphy. This structure theoretically gives more personnel influence to Ball and LaFleur than if they reported directly to the GM, as most front offices are organized.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Chop Robinson, EDGE, Penn State

  • Best Bet: Chop Robinson draft position under 26.5 (-190)

Who calls the shots in the Buccaneers draft room?

GM Jason Licht (11th year) has final say over the roster.

27. Arizona Cardinals: Jer’Zhan Newton, DL, Illinois

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Jer’Zhan Newton, DL, Illinois (Dolphins)

  • Best Bet: Total DL/EDGE players selected in 1st round under 6.5 (-200)

28. Buffalo Bills: Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson (Eagles)

  • Best Bet: Brian Thomas draft position over 19.5 (-195)

Who calls the shots in the Bills draft room?

GM Brandon Beane (eighth year) officially has final say over the roster, but HC Sean McDermott’s opinion is believed to carry equal weight. McDermott and Beane were hired together in 2017 and also worked together for six seasons in Carolina.

29. Detroit Lions: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

  • Best Bet: Lions position of first player drafted cornerback (+135)

Who calls the shots in the Lions draft room?

GM Brad Holmes (fourth year) has final say over personnel decisions. Holmes was a longtime Director of College Scouting with the Rams before joining Detroit, and managing the draft is his strength.

30. Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Morgan, OL, Arizona

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Jordan Morgan, OL, Arizona

  • Best Bet: Jordan Morgan draft position under 32.5 (-175)

Who calls the shots in the Ravens draft room?

GM Eric DeCosta (sixth year as GM, 27th year in the organization) controls roster construction and has maintained a similar approach to his former boss Ozzie Newsome.

TRADE: 31. Las Vegas Raiders: Michael Penix Jr, QB, Washington

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Michael Penix Jr, QB, Washington

  • Trade: San Francisco Receives Picks 44 and 77. Las Vegas Receives Picks 31 and 124.
  • Best Bet: Michael Penix draft position under 32.5 (-370)

32. Kansas City Chiefs: Kingsley Suamataia, OL, BYU

Previous selection in Mock Draft 4.0: Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

  • Best Bet: Kingsley Suamataia to be selected in the 1st Round (+140)

Who calls the shots in the Chiefs draft room?

GM Brett Veach (eighth year) officially has final say over the roster, but Andy Reid’s opinion carries significant weight. The two have worked together since Reid hired Veach as a coaching intern in 2004, and Veach followed Reid to Kansas City in 2013.
