NFL Mock Draft 2.0 | 2024 NFL Draft

by Matty Kiwoom · Fantasy Football

This is NFL Mock Draft 2.0. In this update, Matty Kiwoom gives a full two round breakdown of the 2024 NFL Draft!

Round 1

1.01 Chicago Bears (via CAR)

Selection: Marvin Harrison Jr.

Mock 1.0 Pick: Caleb Williams QB, USC

The Caleb Williams pulling an Eli Manning drumbeat continues to get louder. A trade is most likely in this scenario but for 2.0 there are no trades, so the Bears take a supremely talented WR and run it back with Eberflus and Fields.

1.02 Washington Commanders

Selection: Caleb Williams QB, USC

Mock 1.0 Pick: Drake Maye QB, UNC

The stars are already aligning for Williams to be the next franchise QB in DC. This would be a massive move for the organization and the weapons they already have on offense.

1.03 New England Patriots

Selection: Jayden Daniels QB, LSU

Mock 1.0 Pick: Jayden Daniels QB, LSU

It appears that New England will be targeting a QB with the 1.03, and my gut is telling me that the QB on their radar is the Heisman Trophy winner. It is OFFICIALLY a new era for Jarod Mayo and the Patriots.

1.04 Arizona Cardinals

Selection: Joe Alt OT, Notre Dame

Mock 1.0 Pick: Marvin Harrison Jr. WR, Ohio State

A WR here makes a lot of sense, but locking up one of the best young tackle duos in football is the path the Cards go. Alt is a franchise left tackle and getting to Murray with him and Paris Johnson Jr. just became a whole lot harder.

1.05 Los Angeles Chargers

Selection: Brock Bowers TE, Georgia

Mock 1.0 Pick: Malik Nabers WR, LSU

Brock Bowers brings experience, talent, and toughness to the City of Angels and Jim Harbaugh loves every bit of it. Another weapon for Justin Herbert.

1.06 New York Giants

Selection: Malik Nabers WR, LSU

Mock 1.0 Pick: Olumuyiwa Fashanu OT, Penn State

Quarterback is tempting here, but Brian Daboll and the Giants go all in for Daniel Jones in 2024. New York gets a no doubt WR 1 and the new favorite target in this offense that desperately needs pass catchers.

1.07 Tennessee Titans

Selection: Taliese Fuaga OT, Oregon State

Mock 1.0 Pick: Joe Alt OT, Notre Dame

Tennessee is in the market for offensive line upgrades. Fashanu is absolutely on the table here, but Fuaga is the selection. He is big, athletic, and immediately becomes the Jets best tackle. He can play on the right side as well as the left.

1.08 Atlanta Falcons

Selection: Drake Maye QB, UNC

Mock 1.0 Pick: Laiatu Latu ED, UCLA

Atlanta’s takes the best quarterback still left on the board, and the Raheem Morris era in Atlanta starts off with a bang.

1.09 Chicago Bears

Selection: Dallas Turner ED, Alabama

Mock 1.0 Pick: Taliese Fuaga OT, Oregon State

Harrison Jr. and Dallas Turner is a dream start for any team, so the Bears are cooking with gas on draft night. Turner brings traits similar to Micah Parsons and pairs well with Montez Sweat

1.10 New York Jets

Selection: Olu Fashanu OT, Penn State

Mock 1.0 Pick: Brock Bowers TE, Georgia

Aaron Rodgers has made it clear that he wants to continue to play in the NFL. Olu Fashanu has unlimited upside and can replace a struggling Mekhi Becton.

1.11 Minnesota Vikings

Selection: Laiatu Latu ED, UCLA

Mock 1.0 Pick: Jared Verse ED, Florida State

Minnesota had one of the WORST pass rushing units in the league. Latu has many tricks up his sleeve to get to the quarterback, and he will be welcomed by the Vikings.

1.12 Denver Broncos

Selection: Bo Nix QB, Oregon

Mock 1.0 Pick: Jer’Zhan Newton DI, Illinois

Sean Payton came to Denver and made bold decisions. Cut Randy Gregory and moved on from Mr. Unlimited. He isn’t stopping now that he’s staring at a Heisman Finalist and a pro ready signal caller. Nix goes 12!

1.13 Las Vegas Raiders

Selection: Terrion Arnold CB, Alabama

Mock 1.0 Pick: Bo Nix QB, Oregon

Terrion Arnold had a great 2023 season, highlighted by five picks. He has a TON of hype, and I don’t see that fading. Antonio Pierce takes his new CB 1.

1.14 New Orleans Saints

Selection: Rome Odunze WR, Washington

Mock 1.0 Pick: Bralen Trice ED, Washington

Like it or not, Derek Carr will be around for the next couple of years. Other than Olave, the Saints have an often injured, soon to be free agent, Michael Thomas and a solid field stretcher in Rashid Shaheed. Adding a dynamic receiver like Rome Odunze makes the young WR duo in New Orleans dangerous. It is tough to picture Odunze being here at 14, but if he is, he goes to the Big Easy.

1.15 Indianapolis Colts

Selection: Quinyon Mitchell CB, Toledo

Mock 1.0 Pick: Chop Robinson ED, Penn State

If Michael Pittman walks, WR is very much in play here, but I think Indianapolis does whatever it takes to make him stay. Quinyon Mitchell makes a ton of sense if the Colts don’t go wide receiver.

1.16 Seattle Seahawks

Selection: Michael Penix Jr. QB, Washington

Mock 1.0 Pick: Michael Penix Jr. QB, Washington

Geno Smith has made statements that he is comfortable mentoring a young signal caller. The Seahawks keep the Heisman Trophy finalist in state and start building the next iteration of the Seattle offense with this new coaching staff. 

1.17 Jacksonville Jaguars

Selection: Jared Verse, ED Florida State

Mock 1.0 Pick: Dallas Turner ED, Alabama

Drafting an elite pass rushing prospect in Jared Verse helps on the field, mainly due to his 20 sacks over the past two seasons, and in the front office. Adding Verse allows the team builders leverage in their decision to sign Josh Allen to a mega deal worth over $20 million per year.

1.18 Cincinnati Bengals

Selection: JC Latham OT, Alabama

Mock 1.0 Pick: Keon Coleman WR, Florida State

Cincinnati has decisions to be made on the offensive side of the ball. Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, and Jonah Williams are all due to be paid. Taking a tackle here helps in multiple areas of the organization. JC Latham played a bunch of snaps at right tackle but possesses the skills to handle left tackle. This is a good decision for a team that needs some pass protection for Joe Burrow.

1.19 Los Angeles Rams

Selection: J.J. McCarthy QB, Michigan

Mock 1.0 Pick: Amarius Mims OT, Georgia

A record sixth QB is selected in Round 1 of the 2024 NFL Draft. Los Angeles decides to go grocery shopping before they’re hungry and take the guy that is ready to take over for Matthew Stafford. We witnessed the benefits of learning from a pro’s pro when the world saw Jordan Love upset the Cowboys in the playoffs. J.J. McCarthy is way more talented than people give him credit for, and now he can learn from Sean McVay and Stafford as he prepares to take over one of the best offenses in the world.

1.20 Pittsburgh Steelers

Selection: Tyler Guyton OT, Oklahoma

Mock 1.0 Pick: JC Latham OT, Alabama

Mike Tomlin was down in Mobile and saw the potential of Tyler Guyton. The tackle is 6-7, over 320 pounds, and is other worldy athletic. Broderick Jones and Guyton in back-to-back drafts is the right path to take to solving your offensive line issues.

1.21 Miami Dolphins

Selection: Jackson Powers-Johnson IOL, Oregon

Mock 1.0 Pick: Ja’Tavion Sanders TE, Texas

Jackson Powers-Johnson was unbelievably impressive in Mobile and has positioned himself to be a first round pick. The Dolphins have not one, not two, but three starting interior linemen hitting free agency. Taking Powers-Johnson allows Miami to have some flexibility in how they retool to compete in 2024. Additionally, this gives a starting interior guy from Day 1.

1.22 Philadelphia Eagles

Selection: Cooper DeJean CB, Iowa

Mock 1.0 Pick: Jackson Powers-Johnson C, Oregon

Cooper DeJean is a freak athlete that has the talent and ability to stay at CB but can help the team wherever he settles. The Eagles take DeJean because they need some secondary help after a rough 2023 campaign. 

1.23 Houston Texans (via CLV)

Selection: Jer’Zhan Newton DI, Illinois

Mock 1.0 Pick: T’Vondre Sweat DI, Texas

Houston could use a nice boost to the interior of their defensive line and Jer’Zhan Newton falling to them is perfect. Newton is solid against the run and a problem for opposing quarterbacks. Newton averaged over 30 QB Hurries and six sacks over the last two seasons.

1.24 Dallas Cowboys

Selection: Brian Thomas Jr. WR, LSU

Mock 1.0 Pick: Jeremiah Trotter Jr. LB, Clemson

Michael Gallup looks like a potential cap casalty and Brian Thomas Jr. would be the ideal replacement. Thomas is a fantastic down field weapon with the athleticism to be a factor in the red zone. 

1.25 Green Bay Packers

Selection: Kool-Aid McKinstry CB, Alabama

Mock 1.0 Pick: Kool-Aid McKinstry CB, Alabama

Green Bay continues to invest in defense, and Kool-Aid McKinstry is the perfect guy for the job. He is great in press coverage, solid against the run, a great fit for the Packers.

1.26 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Selection: Nate Wiggins CB, Clemson

Mock 1.0 Pick: Cooper DeJean CB, Iowa

The Buccaneers can get out from underneath Carlton Davis‘s contract, and Nate Wiggins provides an upgrade to their secondary. Wiggins is good in man coverage and has showcased his CB 1 ability at Clemson. Tampa can’t pass up the chance at improving their ability to shut down the pass.

1.27 Arizona Cardinals (via HST)

Selection: Xavier Worthy WR, Texas

Mock 1.0 Pick: Nate Wiggins CB, Clemson

Hollywood Brown leaves, so the Cardinals replace his role in the first round of the NFL Draft. Xavier Worthy is FAST and possesses a lot of talent. The NFL loves projectability, and Worthy can develop into a dangerous weapon for Kyler Murray.

1.28 Buffalo Bills

Selection: Troy Franklin WR, Oregon

Mock 1.0 Pick: Rome Odunze WR, Washington

Gabe Davis can get his money on the open market, and the Bills can draft his replacement. Troy Franklin is slender but really fast. Franklin was a big-time producer with Bo Nix and will be with Josh Allen.

1.29 Detroit Lions

Selection: T.J. Tampa CB, Iowa State

Mock 1.0 Pick: Leonard Taylor III

T.J. Tampa is big at 6-2 and 200-pounds, but he is also excellent at covering pass catchers. Tampa grades well in man coverage and brings the type of intensity that Dan Campbell and the Lions love. Detroit really needs to add to their secondary, and Tampa makes a ton of sense at the end of the first round.

1.30 Baltimore Ravens

Selection: Byron Murphy II DI, Texas

Mock 1.0 Pick: Tyler Nubin S, Minnesota

Byron Murphy being available for the Ravens is a long shot, but the stars can align due the quality of the offensive linemen, corners, wide outs, and quarterbacks in the 2024 NFL Draft. Murphy is an elite defensive linemen prospect and would shine in the Ravens defense. The strong just get stronger in Baltimore.

1.31 San Francisco 49ers

Selection: Jordan Morgan OT, Arizona

Mock 1.0 Pick: Troy Fautanu OT, Washington

San Francisco is a loaded roster, and like most loaded rosters, they can go in a multiple of places in Round 1. This includes luxury picks. Jordan Morgan played mostly left tackle in college but could move to the other side to further improve their zone blocking scheme.

1.32 Kansas City Chiefs

Selection: Chop Robinson ED, Penn State

Mock 1.0 Pick: Troy Franklin WR, Oregon

Chop Robinson is athletic enough to shift around and do different things for Kansas City.

But what Robinson does best is disrupt opposing offenses in their own backfield. With Chris Jones expected to make what the kids call the bag, the Chiefs must prioritize play making pass rushing weapons. 

Round 2

2.01 Carolina Panthers

Selection: Keon Coleman WR, Florida State

Keon Coleman has the most upside of the available wide receivers, and Dave Canales isn’t going to pass up on getting Bryce Young an outside weapon. Coleman and Jonathan Mingo is a lot of raw talent to mold for the offensive moving forward.

2.02 New England Patriots

Selection: Amarius Mims OT, Georgia

Quarterback in Round 1, a big dude to protect him in Round 2. A tale as old as time. Amarius Mims primarily played right tackle at Georgia but could make the switch if needed at the next level. Adding a tackle in this draft is beyond important to this franchise.

2.03 Arizona Cardinals

Selection: Ennis Rakestraw CB, Missouri

Tackle…check. Wideout…check. Cornerback…check! The Cardinals take Ennis Rakestraw not only to improve their ability to cover but also improve their ability to stop the run. Rakestraw brings physicality and big time playmaking ability all over the place.

2.04 Washington Commanders

Selection: Darius Robinson ED, Missouri

The Commanders sent away their top two pass rushers, but they get a good one in Round 2.

Darius Robinson posted nine sacks for the Tigers and put together one of the most complete and game changing weeks at the Senior Bowl. The new regime now has a playmaker on offense and a playmaker on defense.

2.05 Los Angeles Chargers

Selection: Kamari Lassiter CB, Georgia

Los Angeles desperately need to pair a legit corner with their current CB 1, Asante Samuel Jr. Kamari Lassiter is coming off his best season in college in which he surrendered 15 catches in over 400 coverage snaps.

2.06 Tennessee Titans

Selection: Zach Frazier C, West Virginia

Two picks, two offensive linemen for Tennessee. Zach Frazier brings experience, over 800 snaps each of the last three seasons, and consistency to the Titans.

2.07 New York Giants 

Selection: Bralen Trice ED, Washington

The Giants can let Jihad Ward go in free agency and add a premiere pass rusher like Bralen Trice. Trice has had nearly 100 hurries and 20 sacks in his last two seasons at Washington.

2.08 Washington Commanders (via CHI) 

Selection: Troy Fautanu OL, Washington

Washington gave up 65 sacks last year, and they had the No. 2 worst record in the league because of it. Troy Fautanu is really good in pass protection and will certainly help keep Caleb Williams on his feet.

2.09 Green Bay Packers (via NYJ) 

Selection: Graham Barton OL, Duke

Graham Barton has the skillset to play all five positions on the offensive line and would be a great fit for the Packers future plans. Green Bay is building something special and making the right picks in this draft would be crucial.

2.10 Minnesota Vikings 

Selection: T’Vondre Sweat DI, Texas

Improvements on the defensive line were apparent in the pass rush totals and stopping the run.

Latu helps get after the opposing quarterback, and T’Vondre Sweat helps stop the running backs. Harrison Phillips hasn’t gotten the job done, and Sweat is a force that can change the game for Minnesota.

2.11 Atlanta Falcons

Selection: Ladd McConkey WR, Georgia

Rahiem Morris and Zac Robinson understand the importance of having a wide receiver that brings separation skills and route running ability. I will say that Ladd McConkey possesses those skills and will help round out the offensive attack of the Falcons.

2.12 Las Vegas Raiders

Selection: Christian Haynes IOL, UCONN

Christian Haynes was dominant during the Senior Bowl practices and cemented himself as a second or third round pick. The new staff in Las Vegas brings a nastiness to the team, and Haynes will help establish that brand of bully ball.

2.13 New Orleans Saints (via DEN)

Selection: Chris Braswell ED, Alabama

Last year, the Saints had a bottom ten pass rushing unit, and Chris Braswell is a great fit for what they need to do going forward. Braswell is a skilled pass rusher that racked up 13 sacks in 2023 in the SEC.

2.14 Indianapolis Colts

Selection: Edgerrin Cooper LB, Texas A & M

This team can benefit from taking Edgerrin Cooper in a multitude of ways. Cooper is great athlete that has shown the ability to cover as well as get after the quarterback. He will bring speed and a viciousness to the defense.

2.15 New York Giants (via SEA)

Selection: Patrick Paul OT, Houston

It’s the third time to the podium, and the Giants finally select an offensive lineman.

The unit that gave up the most sacks in the NFL gets a player that can help stabilize the edges and hopefully push Evan Neal to inside. Patrick Paul is quick for his 6-7 and 315-pound frame and is a positive in the pass and run games.

2.16 Jacksonville Jaguars

Selection: Adonai Mitchell WR, Texas 

The reason why the Jaguars are making this pick is because they let Calvin Ridley go, so the pivot to a player like Adonai Mitchell is a smooth move. Mitchell has a WR 1 frame and the skills to score touchdowns. He had 11 touchdowns last year at Texas and would fit a role that works great with Evan Engram and Christian Kirk.

2.17 Cincinnati Bengals

Selection: Ja’Tavion Sanders TE, Texas 

Some picks seem too obvious that you KNOW it won’t happen. This is the pick because Cincinnati adding a player with the skills of Ja’Tavion Sanders would be a home run in Round 2. Sanders has the prospect pedigree and can rack up the yards after catch in the NFL. With basically every tight end that was on the 2023 roster being free agents, prioritizing the position makes sense…a little too much sense.

2.18 Philadelphia Eagles (via NO)

Selection: Jeremiah Trotter LB, Clemson

Linebackers are a target for the Eagles and adding Jeremiah Trotter Jr. would be fantastic. Trotter is good in coverage and is not afraid to lay a big hit. These are the exact qualities that Philadelphia needs.

2.19 Los Angeles Rams

Selection: Kiran Amegadje OT, Yale

The Rams offensive line is getting older. Even though they played better to end the season, they need to infuse some youth. Despite missing most of the 2023 season, Kiran Amagadje is a fast riser throughout the draft process.

2.20 Pittsburgh Steelers

Selection: Jarvis Brownlee Jr. CB, Louisville

Mike Tomlin continues to make picks that he saw in person down in Mobile at the Senior Bowl. Jarvis Brownlee Jr. was super impressive down there and continuously looked like a CB 1 throughout the week. Pittsburgh goes cornerback in back to back second rounds, and they are happy with the decisions.

2.21 Miami Dolphins

Selection: Payton Wilson LB, NC State

Payton Wilson is so good in coverage and provides an upgrade to the middle of the Dolphins’ defense. Wilson can go sideline to sideline and posted almost 100 total tackles last year at NC State.

2.22 Philadelphia Eagles

Selection: Jaylen Wright RB, Tennessee

The Eagles have a luxury pick here in Round 2, and they use it on a position that needs attention, especially if D’Andre Swift leaves via free agency.

Jaylen Wright being the first running back off the board seems crazy right now. However, there is no clear RB 1, and Wright has bell cow upside. Wright is an early declare with the size, speed, production, and hands to be the pick for the Eagles.

2.23 Cleveland Browns

Selection: Kris Jenkins DI, Michigan

Cleveland has a number of interior defensive linemen facing free agency, and they can’t bring them all back. Kris Jenkins has the professional football pedigree and would help one of the best defensive lines maintain their dominance.

2.24 Dallas Cowboys

Selection: Braelon Allen RB, Wisconsin

Here we have it. The pick the fantasy community has been clambering for. Braelon Allen had been producing since he was a true freshman and has the requisite size for the NFL. Paying Tony Pollard wouldn’t be such a big deal if they bring in their next bell cow running back.

2.25 Green Bay Packers

Selection: Tyler Nubin S, Minnesota

The Packers have a luxury pick here in the second round, and they are smart to use it on the most complete safety in the class. Tyler Nubin can make plays in center field as well as in the box. Green Bay sends an upgrade to join their secondary.

2.26 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

Selection: Marshawn Kneeland ED, Wyoming

Marshawn Kneeland can settle inside the top 50 as we get closer to the NFL Draft, but the Buccaneers getting him in Round 2 would be welcomed with open arms. Kneeland is effective against the pass as well as the run and had some of his best games against the tougher teams on the schedule. 

2.27 Houston Texans

Selection: Mike Sainristil CB, Michigan 

This may be high for a cornerback that played mostly out of the slot, but he is such a strong fit to the Texans’ secondary especially if they re-sign Steven Nelson. Mike Sainristil is the best slot corner in the class and will immediately make the Texans secondary one of the best in the league.

2.28 Buffalo Bills

Selection: Jonah Ellis ED, Utah 

At this point in the second round, it would be considered by many to be a slide for Jonah Ellis, so Buffalo is thrilled to have the chance to select the skilled pass rusher. Ellis brings his explosiveness and horsepower to a Bills defensive line that has a lot of snaps leaving in free agency.

2.29 Detroit Lions

Selection: Tez Walker WR, UNC

Josh Reynolds has been solid for the Lions, but his services are no longer needed.

Tez Walker may have seen his stock fall a bit after a really underwhelming Senior Bowl. This may end up being a good thing for him because getting selected by Detroit would be a great fit.

2.30 Baltimore Ravens 

Selection: Xavier Legette WR, South Carolina

Baltimore is known for being really confident in players even if their stock falls in the public eye. Xavier Legette was once thought to be a lock for the end of Round 1, but here he is late Round 2. Legette is big and explosive on the field. Pairing him with Zay Flowers has the potential to make for a really strong wide receiver duo.

2.31 San Francisco 49ers

Selection: Brenden Rice WR, USC

Legacy pick! San Francisco needs to continue to add young talent to keep this juggernaut going, and Brenden Rice provides the offense with another weapon that has a ceiling to be a difference maker. Jujuan Jennings is a RFA, and Rice’s size and speed would take that role to another level.

2.32 Kansas City Chiefs 

Selection: Roman Wilson WR, Michigan 

The MVP of the Senior Bowl week (not game but the entire week), Roman Wilson going to the Chiefs would only continue to catapult his stock. Wilson brings speed, crips route running, consistency, and toughness, and that is exactly what Kansas City would like to add.
