2024 NFL Mock Draft With Trades: Mike Fanelli (3.0)

2024 NFL Mock Draft With Trades: Mike Fanelli (3.0)

The NFL offseason is in full swing. The NFL Combine and franchise tag window just passed, meaning free agency is less than a week away. While free agency will impact every team’s needs heading into the 2024 NFL Draft, now is the perfect time for another mock draft.

Let’s dive into my third NFL mock draft of the year. This mock draft is a two-rounder and contains 13 potential trades, including three in the top 10 picks.

2024 NFL Draft Guide

2024 NFL Mock Draft With Trades: Mike Fanelli (3.0)

Round 1

1) Chicago Bears (via Carolina) – Caleb Williams (QB – USC)

While Chicago hasn’t officially traded away Justin Fields, the belief at the NFL Combine is that the team will hold onto the top pick and trade away their starting quarterback. The Bears could take a different quarterback with the top pick. Yet, Williams is all but a lock to land in Chicago.

2) Washington Commanders – Drake Maye (QB – UNC)

The Commanders will have a decision to make with the No. 2 overall pick. Some believe the team will draft Jayden Daniels after hiring Kliff Kingsbury as the offensive coordinator. Yet, Maye fits well into his scheme and has the better pedigree.

3) New England Patriots – Jayden Daniels (QB – LSU)

Reportedly, New England could sign a veteran quarterback in free agency, allowing them to auction this pick off for a ransom. However, that seems shortsighted and unlikely to happen. Whichever of the big three quarterbacks slides to the No. 3 pick will be a Patriot.

4) Arizona Cardinals – Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – Ohio State)

Some recent mock drafts have sent Malik Nabers to the Cardinals after Harrison didn’t work out at the NFL Combine. Yet, that doesn’t make any sense since Nabers did even less in Indianapolis. Whether you call it boredom or a desire to switch things up, Harrison isn’t making it past the fourth pick.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Minnesota Vikings receive pick 5. Los Angeles Chargers receive picks 11, 109, 2025 first-rounder.

5) Minnesota Vikings (via Chargers) – J.J. McCarthy (QB – Michigan)

One of the biggest takeaways from the NFL Combine is that Jim Harbaugh is open for business during the draft. With the New York Giants reportedly interested in drafting a quarterback, any team that wants to guarantee themselves McCarthy will need to trade up. Whether the Vikings re-sign Kirk Cousins or not, they must find their future face of the franchise during the NFL Draft. Meanwhile, the Chargers add significant draft capital to reshape the roster in Harbaugh’s mold.

6) New York Giants – Malik Nabers (WR – LSU)

While Daniel Jones isn’t the ideal Week 1 starter for the Giants, they got pushed out of the first-round quarterback mix in this mock draft. The next best thing the team can do is finally give Jones a legitimate No. 1 caliber wide receiver after failing to do that last year.

7) Tennessee Titans – Joe Alt (OT – Notre Dame)

Tennessee has so many draft needs that they are a team to watch for moving down on draft day. However, they can’t pass up on Alt if he slides to the seventh pick. Last year, the team hit a home run with Peter Skoronski at left guard. Now it’s time to give Will Levis a blindside protector for the next decade.

8) Atlanta Falcons – Dallas Turner (EDGE – Alabama)

Assuming the Falcons address their need at quarterback in free agency or the trade market, their focus early in the NFL Draft should be defense. The team has spent several years trying to find an alpha pass rusher. Hopefully, Turner can finally be the answer to their problem.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Carolina Panthers receive picks 9, 75. Chicago Bears receive pick 33, Brian Burns.

9) Carolina Panthers (via Bears) – Rome Odunze (WR – Washington)

What’s the point of a mock draft if you don’t throw a curve ball into it? The Panthers placed the franchise tag on Burns but have broken off contract extension talks with the star pass rusher. Carolina needs to give Bryce Young help on offense. However, that will be difficult without a first-round draft pick and limited cap space. Yet, Burns gives them a chance to get into the first round and secure a go-to wide receiver for Young.

The Bears have their franchise quarterback and a surplus of draft capital. General manager Ryan Poles is aggressive, pulling off midseason deals for Chase Claypool and Montez Sweat. He also made the blockbuster deal with the 2023 No. 1 draft pick. Chicago ranks near the top in available cap space this offseason. They can afford to lock up Burns and Jaylon Johnson to long-term deals, especially with Caleb Williams being a bargain for the next several years.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Cincinnati Bengals receive pick 10. New York Jets receive picks 18, 49, 196.

10) Cincinnati Bengals (via Jets) – Brock Bowers (TE – Georgia)

Almost every mock draft has the Jets taking an offensive tackle in the first round. While the offensive line is New York’s top problem, they have several other needs and lack a second-round selection. By trading back, the Jets take advantage of a deep offensive tackle draft class and add picks to fix their other needs. Meanwhile, with Tee Higgins getting slapped with the franchise tag and Tyler Boyd set to leave in free agency, the Bengals should improve Joe Burrow’s receiving weapons.

11) Los Angeles Chargers (via Vikings) – Taliese Fuaga (OT – Oregon State)

While the Chargers missed out on the top offensive tackle and three elite wide receiver prospects, they managed to slide back six spots, add a 2025 first-round pick, and still grab the best right tackle in the draft class. Pairing Fuaga with Rashawn Slater will make life easy for Justin Herbert and whoever is playing running back.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Houston Texans receive pick 12. Denver Broncos receive picks 23, 59, 2025 third-rounder.

12) Houston Texans (via Broncos) – Quinyon Mitchell (CB – Toledo)

Last year, general manager Nick Caserio was aggressive, trading back up in the first round to secure Will Anderson Jr. after drafting C.J. Stroud. There were rumors at the NFL Combine that the Texans could make another blockbuster trade on draft day for a specific player. The team has a win-now roster with a star rookie quarterback. Now is the time for Houston to make a swing for the fence-type deal and transform their defense.

13) Las Vegas Raiders – JC Latham (OT – Alabama)

Las Vegas could be in the mix to trade up for J.J. McCarthy. Reportedly, they are also considering a veteran quarterback like Russell Wilson. Regardless, there isn’t one worth drafting on the board, so the team improves their offensive line. Pairing Latham with Kolton Miller gives the Raiders bookend offensive tackles, giving head coach Antonio Pierce an impressive unit to run the ball down their opponent’s throat.

14) New Orleans Saints – Olu Fashanu (OT – Penn State)

Unfortunately, 2022 first-round pick Trevor Penning hasn’t worked out. Meanwhile, Andrus Peat is a free agent and might not return. Derek Carr battled through multiple injuries after taking too many hits in 2023. The Saints will sprint to the podium if Fashanu slides to them.

15) Indianapolis Colts – Terrion Arnold (CB – Alabama)

The Colts have one of the better up-and-coming young offenses in the NFL. However, their defense still needs work. Arnold is the top cornerback for many teams in the draft and an ideal fit for Indianapolis. He would step in as a rookie and face off against a division loaded with talented young quarterbacks.

16) Seattle Seahawks – Troy Fautanu (OL – Washington)

Seattle needs significant help along the offensive line. They struggled to stay healthy last season. More importantly, all three interior starters are free agents in less than a week. Fautanu can play anywhere on the offensive line, giving the team options next season. It also doesn’t hurt that the Seahawks’ offensive coordinator, Ryan Grubb, was Fautanu’s offensive coordinator last year at Washington.

17) Jacksonville Jaguars – Brian Thomas Jr. (WR – LSU)

After placing the franchise tag on Josh Allen, the Jaguars will let Calvin Ridley hit the open market next week. While the star receiver could return in 2024, that seems less likely the closer we get to the start of free agency. Even if Ridley is back with the team, that shouldn’t stop Jacksonville from upgrading their wide receiver unit.

18) New York Jets (via Bengals) – Tyler Guyton (OT – Oklahoma)

Even if New York kicks Alijah Vera-Tucker out to tackle full-time next season, it leaves the team with a massive hole protecting Aaron Rodgers’ blindside. While trading back cost the Jets the opportunity to draft a few offensive tackles, they landed the most athletic one in the draft class.

19) Los Angeles Rams – Jared Verse (EDGE – Florida State)

Assuming the Rams don’t trade this pick, it will be the team’s first Day 1 selection since drafting Jared Goff. The run on offensive linemen has pushed the edge rushers down the board and right into Los Angeles’ lap. While 2023 third-round picks Kobie Turner and Byron Young each had at least eight sacks last year, Verse would give new defensive coordinator Chris Shula the alpha pass rusher he needs to pair alongside Aaron Donald.

20) Pittsburgh Steelers – Amarius Mims (OT – Georgia)

The Steelers released several veterans over the past month, including two members of the offensive line – center Mason Cole and offensive tackle Chukwuma Okorafor. The team used their 2023 first-round pick on Mims’ former college teammate – Broderick Jones. With Dan Moore Jr. in the final year of his rookie contract, Pittsburgh should reunite former Bulldog teammates to create massive holes in Arthur Smith’s run-heavy offense.

21) Miami Dolphins – Byron Murphy II (DL – Texas)

Unfortunately, the Dolphins have limited cap space heading into free agency. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Christian Wilkins didn’t receive the franchise tag and will likely play elsewhere in 2024. Murphy is a bit undersized but has a non-stop motor and can replace the nine sacks Wilkins had last season.

22) Philadelphia Eagles – Graham Barton (OL – Duke)

Three things guaranteed in life – death, taxes, and the Eagles using their first-round pick on a lineman. With Jason Kelce’s retirement, Cam Jurgens will slide from right guard to center in 2024. However, Philadelphia values versatile offensive linemen, making Barton the perfect pick. He played left tackle at Duke but projects at either guard spot or center in the NFL.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Buffalo Bills receive pick 23. Denver Broncos receive picks 28, 99, 129.

23) Buffalo Bills (via Broncos, Texans, Cleveland) – Laiatu Latu (EDGE – UCLA)

While the Bills need to add a wide receiver early in the NFL Draft, their top need is an edge rusher. The team has multiple edge rushers set to hit the open market next week, including 2023 sack leader Leonard Floyd (10.5). Furthermore, over half of Buffalo’s sack total from last season is upcoming free agents. While Latu has some medical concerns, he is the most polished pass rusher in the draft class.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Detroit Lions receive pick 24. Dallas Cowboys receive picks 29, 73.

24) Detroit Lions (via Cowboys) – Nate Wiggins (CB – Clemson)

Detroit had an elite offense last season, but their defense was one of the worst in the NFL. Aidan Hutchinson was a force up front by himself, but the secondary was a disaster. With several cornerback-needy teams picking ahead of them, the Lions move up and secure Wiggins. Pairing the former Clemson star with Brian Branch gives the team two building blocks for years to come in the secondary.

25) Green Bay Packers – Cooper DeJean (DB – Iowa)

DeJean to the Packers might be the most chalk pick in every mock draft. However, it makes perfect sense for the team and player. Green Bay’s secondary struggled to stay healthy in 2023. Furthermore, they have multiple upcoming free agents, including both starting safeties. DeJean’s ability to play anywhere in the secondary will give new defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley options on Sundays.

26) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Chop Robinson (EDGE – Penn State)

The Buccaneers placed the franchise tag on Antoine Winfield Jr. after signing Mike Evans to a two-year extension. Unless Baker Mayfield leaves in free agency, Tampa Bay has options with their first-round draft pick. The team released Shaquil Barrett earlier this offseason. Adding an athletic edge rusher to pair with Joe Tyron-Shoyinka and YaYa Diaby is needed.

27) Arizona Cardinals (via Houston) – Jackson Powers-Johnson (C – Oregon)

Most mock drafts have the Cardinals add an offensive tackle or defensive player with their late first-round pick. However, Powers-Johnson is too talented to pass up this late in the first round. Arizona’s current starting center is a free agent after the 2024 season. After drafting Paris Johnson Jr. last year, why not add another Johnson to protect Kyler Murray?

28) Denver Broncos (via Bills) – Michael Penix Jr. (QB – Washington)

Denver will be the ultimate wild card team during the NFL Draft. After releasing Russell Wilson, Jarrett Stidham and Ben DiNucci are the only quarterbacks on the roster. They could pull off a blockbuster deal and move up for a quarterback. However, that will be difficult with limited draft capital and salary cap space. Instead, they move back twice, add multiple draft picks to improve their roster, and take a shot on the former Washington star in this mock draft.

29) Dallas Cowboys (via Lions) – Adonai Mitchell (WR – Texas)

Should Dallas take a wide receiver in the first round when they have more critical needs? No. Will Jerry Jones have a hard time passing on a big and fast wide receiver from Texas to pair with CeeDee Lamb? Yes. Drafting Mitchell makes no sense on paper. Yet, the Cowboys rarely make wise moves, especially at the wide receiver position.

30) Baltimore Ravens – Darius Robinson (EDGE – Missouri)

The Ravens had an elite defense last season. While they placed the franchise tag on breakout star Justin Madubuike, their next two sack leaders had 18.5 in 2023. Unfortunately, Jadeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy are older players and free agents. Robinson’s versatility will be a welcome addition in Baltimore, giving new defensive coordinator Zach Orr options when game planning.

31) San Francisco 49ers – Jordan Morgan (OT – Arizona)

Trent Williams is the best left tackle in the NFL and a future first-ballot Hall of Famer. However, he turns 36 in August and missed time with injuries last year. More importantly, the rest of the 49ers’ offensive line is, at best, average. Morgan can start at right guard, replacing upcoming free agent Jon Feliciano, before kicking out to left tackle when Williams calls it a career.

32) Kansas City Chiefs – Xavier Worthy (WR – Texas)

Worthy to the Chiefs might be the most popular pick in mock drafts over the next two weeks. After breaking the NFL Combine 40-yard dash record with a 4.21, the former Texas star is near lock to get picked on Day 1. Kansas City has a star in the making with Rashee Rice but lacks a vertical big-play guy on the outside. The fantasy football community will go crazy if Worthy gets to catch passes from Patrick Mahomes for the next several years.

Round 2

33) Chicago Bears (via Panthers)Keon Coleman (WR – Florida State)

Many teams will want to trade up to start the second day of the NFL Draft. However, the Bears are in the same situation the Steelers were in last year and turn down every offer. After trading away the ninth pick to secure Brian Burns, Chicago gives Caleb Williams another weapon to pair with DJ Moore and Cole Kmet.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

New York Giants receive pick 34. New England Patriots receive picks 39, 70.

34) New Giants (via Patriots)Bo Nix (QB – Oregon)

Reportedly, the Giants have done their homework on the quarterback draft class. Therefore, don’t be surprised if they trade up for a quarterback if one of the top six guys starts to slide. While the teams picking ahead of New York didn’t need a quarterback, the last thing the team wants to see is someone behind them move up and steal Nix. With Daniel Jones’ contract having an out after the 2024 season, don’t be surprised if the Giants pick a quarterback early in the draft.

35) Arizona Cardinals – T.J. Tampa (CB – Iowa State)

After using both their first-round picks on offense, the Cardinals turn their attention to the defense. The team’s cornerback unit had some impressive moments last season but lacks someone capable of matching up against DK Metcalf, Brandon Aiyuk and Puka Nacua. Tampa could sneak into the late first round, making him a value to start Day 2.

36) Washington CommandersKingsley Suamataia (OT – BYU)

The Commanders have two picks early in the second round. They could potentially trade back into the late first round if a player they like starts to slide. However, Washington stands pat in this mock draft and grabs their new left tackle to replace Charles Leno Jr.

37) Los Angeles Chargers – Troy Franklin (WR – Oregon)

Los Angeles wisely took advantage of the deep wide receiver class and traded back in the first round, securing the team extra draft capital. Franklin had a mildly disappointing performance at the NFL Combine, causing him to slip into the second round. Yet, falling into Day 2 of the draft is a small price to pay to catch passes from Justin Herbert for the next several years.

38) Tennessee Titans – Ladd McConkey (WR – Georgia)

Unfortunately, the Titans find themselves stuck behind the Chargers throughout the NFL Draft. Both teams have similar needs on offense and defense. However, Tennessee lucks out and lands one of the most pro-ready wide receivers in the draft class. McConkey gets compared to Hunter Renfrow but he is a far superior athlete and route runner.

39) New England Patriots (via Giants)Xavier Legette (WR – South Carolina)

The run on wide receivers continues, with New England giving Jayden Daniels a legitimate No. 1 option in the passing game. While the Patriots wished they had kept Jakobi Meyers over JuJu Smith-Schuster, the team must upgrade the worst wide receiver core in the NFL. The only way Daniels or any quarterback will succeed in New England is if the team uses their second-round pick on an impact wide receiver.

40) Washington Commanders (via Chicago)Ennis Rakestraw Jr. (CB – Missouri)

Last year, the Commanders used their first-round pick on Emmanuel Forbes Jr. While he had a rocky rookie season, the team has high hopes for him and Quan Martin in 2024. However, adding Rakestraw will give the team options at cornerback, especially with Kendall Fuller set to hit the open market next week.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Philadelphia Eagles receive pick 41. Green Bay Packers receive picks 50, 97.

41) Philadelphia Eagles (via Packers, New York) – Bralen Trice (EDGE – Washington)

While Brandon Graham could return next season, the Eagles must add bodies to their pass rush unit. After leading the NFL with 70 sacks in 2022, the team had 43 last year. With 10 picks in this year’s draft, Philadelphia gladly sends Green Bay a late third-round selection to secure Trice.

42) Minnesota VikingsCooper Beebe (OL – Kansas State)

Minnesota has spent multiple early-round picks on their offensive line over the past few years. Starting left guard Dalton Risner is a free agent and likely won’t return. Beebe can fill that starting role as a rookie. Furthermore, the Vikings have several backup offensive linemen set to hit the open market, making their depth a massive concern.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Chicago Bears receive pick 43. Atlanta Falcons receive Justin Fields.

43) Chicago Bears (via Falcons) – Jer’Zhan Newton (DL – Illinois)

Reportedly, the Falcons’ top target at quarterback this offseason is Kirk Cousins. However, the veteran might not hit the open market. If Atlanta misses out on Cousins, expect them to circle back to Fields. Meanwhile, the Bears have improved their defensive line over the past year. Pairing Newton with 2023 Day 2 picks Gervon Dexter Sr. and Zacch Pickens would give the team an impressive defensive tackle rotation.

44) Las Vegas RaidersKool-Aid McKinstry (CB – Alabama)

With no quarterback with the draft pick on the board, the Raiders to their attention to their top need on defense. McKinstry was once considered a top-10 pick but has seen his draft stock slip over the past few months. Regardless, Las Vegas will gladly take a shot on him in the second round and see how he matches up with the talented wide receivers in the AFC West division.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Los Angeles Rams receive picks 45, 174. New Orleans Saints receive picks 52, 100, 191.

45) Los Angeles Rams (via Saints, Denver)Zach Frazier (C – West Virginia)

The Rams released starting center Brian Allen before the start of free agency as the team continues to revamp their offensive line. Many believe Frazier could sneak into the late first round, making him a steal at pick 45 overall. Los Angeles has plenty of draft capital, making the downside to trading up minimal.

46) Indianapolis Colts – T’Vondre Sweat (DL – Texas)

Starting defensive tackle Grover Stewart is an upcoming free agent. Last year, the Colts had one of the worst run defenses in the NFL, especially when Stewart was out of the lineup because of a suspension. Sweat is the top run stuffer in the draft class.

47) New York Giants (via Seattle) – Ja’Tavion Sanders (TE – Texas)

Instead of giving Daniel Jones a go-to No. 1 wide receiver, the Giants traded for Darren Waller last offseason. The veteran tight end struggled and missed time with a hamstring injury. Reportedly, he is considering retirement this offseason. Even if Waller returns, New York should spend multiple draft picks improving their receiving core.

48) Jacksonville Jaguars – Kamari Lassiter (CB – Georgia)

With the Jaguars using the franchise tag on Josh Allen, it means Calvin Ridley is heading toward free agency. If he doesn’t return to Jacksonville, the team will hold onto this pick instead of sending it to the Falcons. Meanwhile, the team cut cornerback Darious Williams earlier this week, making their need at cornerback even more significant.

49) New York Jets (via Bengals) – Kamren Kinchens (S – Miami)

Both starting safeties for the Jets and their top backup are free agents this offseason. With limited salary cap space, the team must add at least one safety during the draft. While Kinchens had a disappointing performance at the NFL Combine, he still could be the first safety off the board.

50) Green Bay Packers (via Eagles, New Orleans) – Zak Zinter (G – Michigan)

While many want to talk about the team’s left tackle spot, with David Bakhtiari likely having played his final game for the Packers, Green Bay has high expectations of Rasheed Walker. However, Jon Runyan is a free agent and likely will find a better offer on the open market. Zinter was one of the top guards in college football last season.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Dallas Cowboys receive picks 51, 120. Pittsburgh Steelers receive picks 56, 87.

51) Dallas Cowboys (via Steelers)Braden Fiske (DL – Florida State)

There is a chance that Fiske could sneak into the late first round, making him a steal in the middle of the second. The Cowboys have multiple defensive tackles scheduled to hit the open market next week. Fiske is a tad undersized but could be unstoppable playing next to Micah Parsons in Dallas.

52) New Orleans Saints (via Rams)Chris Braswell (EDGE – Alabama)

New Orleans has spent multiple early-round picks on edge rushers the past few years, including a second-round selection on Isaiah Foskey in 2023. However, Cameron Jordan isn’t getting any younger and had only two sacks last season, his lowest total since his rookie year. Adding youth and depth at edge rusher is a top need for the Saints.

53) Philadelphia Eagles – Kris Jenkins (DL – Michigan)

Fletcher Cox has been a staple of the Eagles’ defense over the past 12 years, but his time in Philadelphia might be over. The veteran is a free agent and could find a more significant role elsewhere in 2024. The team has used back-to-back first-round draft picks on Jalen Carter and Jordan Davis, but the depth behind them is thin.

54) Cleveland Browns – Edgerrin Cooper (LB – Texas A&M)

Unfortunately, the Browns won’t have a first-round pick for the third consecutive year because of the Deshaun Watson trade. Cleveland had an impressive defense last season but struggled with injuries, especially at the linebacker position. More importantly, the team has five linebackers set to hit the open market, including multiple starters.

55) Miami Dolphins – Christian Haynes (G – UConn)

While all eyes are on the Dolphins and their attempt to sign Tua Tagovailoa to a long-term extension, Miami needs to worry about their offensive line. Left tackle Terron Armstead could retire in the offseason. More importantly, all three starting interior linemen are upcoming free agents. Haynes would be an excellent replacement for one of the veterans.

56) Pittsburgh Steelers (via Cowboys) – Mike Sainristil (CB – Michigan)

The Steelers got a steal with Joey Porter Jr. in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. However, the rest of the team’s cornerback unit struggled last season. With multiple cornerbacks set to hit the open market next week, Sainristil could go from playing for the National Champions to starting as a rookie in Pittsburgh.

57) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Roman Wilson (WR – Michigan)

Tampa Bay recently signed Mike Evans to a two-year extension, potentially keeping him with the franchise through the end of his career. However, the extension likely means Chris Godwin won’t return after his contract expires following the 2024 season. Furthermore, Russell Gage is a likely cap casualty, and the depth at wide receiver is thin, giving Wilson a chance to be a starter as a rookie.

58) Green Bay PackersJonathon Brooks (RB – Texas)

Last year’s running back draft class was outstanding. Unfortunately, the 2024 draft class is one of the worst in recent memory. However, Brooks has a chance to be a second-round pick despite coming off a torn ACL. AJ Dillon is a free agent and likely won’t return while Aaron Jones’ future with the team is up in the air, making running back an under-the-radar massive need for the Packers.

59) Denver Broncos (via Texans) – Ricky Pearsall (WR – Florida)

While Courtland Sutton was among the league leaders in receiving touchdowns last season, the team’s receiving core needs help. Jerry Jeudy is entering the final year of his rookie contract and could get traded in the offseason. There have also been rumors about the team exploring trade options for Sutton. Regardless, Pearsall and Marvin Mims will give Michael Penix Jr. two explosive receivers to develop alongside.

60) Buffalo Bills – Tez Walker (WR – UNC)

The Bills’ wide receiver core could look drastically different next season. Gabe Davis is a free agent and unlikely to return. Meanwhile, Stefon Diggs’ future with the team is up in the air after back-to-back years with late-season struggles. While Walker has had a rocky pre-draft process, the former North Carolina receiver is too talented to make it past Buffalo in this mock draft.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

New England Patriots receive pick 61. Detroit Lions receive picks 68, 104.

61) New England Patriots (via Lions) – Patrick Paul (OT – Houston)

Much will change in New England over the next few months without Bill Belichick in the building. The Patriots used the transition tag on safety Kyle Dugger instead of the franchise tag on Mike Onwenu, meaning both starting offensive tackles will be free agents next week. If neither is back with the team next season, New England must acquire a blindside protector for Jayden Daniels.

62) Baltimore Ravens – Malachi Corley (WR – Western Kentucky)

Zay Flowers had a promising rookie season, while head coach John Harbaugh has high expectations for Rashod Bateman in 2024. Yet, that shouldn’t stop the Ravens from adding a wide receiver on Day 2. Odell Beckham Jr. didn’t live up to the hype last year and likely won’t return. Furthermore, the team’s depth at wide receiver is thin.

63) San Francisco 49ers – Adisa Isaac (EDGE – Penn State)

San Francisco has one of the top defensive lines in the NFL, led by Nick Bosa. They acquired Chase Young at the trade deadline, but that was a rental move as the edge rusher is a free agent next week. Unfortunately, the 49ers also have several reserve defensive linemen set to hit the open market.

*** TRADE ALERT ***

Arizona Cardinals receive pick 64. Kansas City Chiefs receive picks 71, 105.

64) Arizona Cardinals (via Chiefs) – Leonard Taylor III (DL – Miami)

The Cardinals have a surplus of draft capital this year. General manager Monti Ossenfort showed he is aggressive, trading up and down within the first six picks of the 2023 NFL Draft. Arizona has several upcoming free-agent defensive linemen and must improve a unit that struggled last season.
