In this 2024 NFL Mock Draft, we will go through a first-round simulation team by team. The Pittsburgh Steelers gain a solid pick at 20, as they hope to get a quality player that fills a void for them. The rest of the teams either reach for players or find some good value in their selections.

There are no trades, but there are plenty of surprises. Here's my latest 2024 full first-round mock draft.

Quarterback. Caleb Williams. . 1. Williams. player. Caleb Williams. 57. .

1. Chicago Bears: Caleb Williams, QB, USC

The obvious choice here for the Bears as they have to take Caleb Williams. He has a ton of talent and could develop into a potential star. Some character concerns have risen around his name in recent weeks. Some might see him as selfish and not a team player. His talent is undeniable, and the rumors of trading Justin Fields will eventually conclude.

2. Maye. Quarterback. . Drake Maye. 58. . Drake Maye. . player

2. Washington Commanders: Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

After Williams goes at one, the Commanders stick with their guns. They take Drake Maye out of North Carolina. Unless a trade happens or something crazy occurs, this will be the pick. You can almost write this one in permanent marker. Maye has a ton of physical talent that needs to be ironed out at the next level. If he can do that, then he will be a tremendous player.

. . Quarterback. Jayden Daniels. . Jayden Daniels. player. 47. Daniels. 3

3. New England Patriots: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

New England is the first pick where you don't know where they are leaning. They could always trade back, but it sounds like they want to move on from Mac Jones at quarterback. They decide to keep the run on the position going here by selecting Jayden Daniels. He has a ton of elements to his game that make him explosive. That will be a welcomed addition to a stale Patriots offense.
