The NFL Draft is less than a week away, meaning we’re almost finished with a pre-draft process that sometimes seems interminable. Or maybe that’s just me, seeing as this is the sixth mock draft I’ve written leading up to it.

There are only so many directions you can take when putting together a mock, but while I’ve experimented with different ideas recently, this mock is more straightforward.

I approached this one as a prediction. I combined all the information I’ve gathered from talking and reading with my own feelings on players to come up with my best guess. Let’s call it “slightly informed speculation.”

For more draft coverage, you can hear in-depth analysis twice a week on “With the First Pick” — our year-round NFL Draft podcast with NFL Draft analyst Ryan Wilson and former Vikings general manager Rick Spielman. You can find “With the First Pick” wherever you get your podcasts: Apple PodcastsSpotifyYouTube, etc.

The 2024 NFL Draft will take place from April 25-27 in Detroit. More draft coverage can be found at, including the weekly updated draft order and a regularly available look at the eligible prospects
