NFL DRAFT 2024

Cecil Lammey’s one-and-only first-round mock of the 2024 NFL Draft

Apr 24, 2024, 5:55 PM | Updated: 6:10 pm

The 2024 NFL Draft is finally here! It’s my favorite time of year, and the draft is basically three days of Christmas in April for me. I look forward to this every year, and each year I do one mock draft.

I do not do any trades in this mock draft, but after the No. 1 overall pick, I think we could see two moves just within the top-five picks. The Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings are desperately looking to move up. The New England Patriots may be bluffing about their quarterback interest, and they – along with the Arizona Cardinals – may be willing to move back for the right haul.

As you can see, there is a ton of potential activity on Thursday. My mock won’t be 100 percent correct, but if I can get around 5-10 picks correct then I’ll be more than happy – and that would be better than most any other mock out there.

Here is my 2024 first-round mock draft. Enjoy.
