2024 NFL Mock Draft: Brinson’s Worst Mock Ever designed to anger every single NFL fan base

Will Brinson trolls his boat once again

Last year I finally did something I’d been meaning to do for years, putting together the WORST MOCK DRAFT EVER. The purpose? To troll every single NFL fan base (or at least as many as possible) with the worst possible pick for their team. 

A funny thing happened along the way, though … I kind of got a few things right. By accident naturally, of course. But by giving the Panthers Will Levis with the No. 1 overall pick, I trolled Texans fans by passing on Bryce Young for C.J. Stroud. Which looks genius now … or stupid. 

One or the other. Maybe both. 

Regardless, we’re back this year to make terrible picks for every single team. But the point of the mock is they have to be realistic picks as well. 

Lest you think this is an outrageous exercise, let’s remember the Raiders once took JaMarcus Russell with the first overall pick in a draft that featured Calvin Johnson and Joe Thomas, two can’t-miss prospects who are now Hall of Famers. Jake Locker and Blaine Gabbert were drafted right in front of JJ Watt (and Locker was taken in front of Tyron Smith too). 

The Eagles drafted Jalen Reagor over Justin Jefferson … and still went to a Super Bowl in spite of themselves. Even Bill Belichick took N’Keal Harry instead of Deebo Samuel, A.J. Brown or DK Metcalf

Stop pretending your favorite NFL team makes the right decisions on draft night. NFL teams do stupid things all the time. Come join me on a voyage of bad decisions!
