Mock draft tracker: 5 possible first-round picks for every team in the 2024 NFL draft

Must read

With just days before 2024 NFL draft, we’ve compiled the results of five USA TODAY mock drafts since before the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers were preparing for Super Bowl 58.

USA TODAY’s NFL experts determined each team’s needs and developed multiple mock drafts for a variety of scenarios leading up to draft day. We’ve combined the results of their most recent mock drafts here for all 29 teams picking in the first round of the 2024 draft, which begins April 25 in Detroit.

These mock drafts range from before the Super Bowl to just days after the Atlanta Falcons signed quarterback Kirk Cousins to our most recent mock draft on April 15.

Our first mock draft of the month on April 3 considered what might happen if the Minnesota Vikings work a deal with the Los Angeles Chargers for their fifth pick in the draft. The Falcons lured away Cousins from the Vikings in March. Might Minnesota be willing to trade up to get Drake Maye? See how that might ripple through the choices the rest of the league makes, too.
