The 2024 NFL Draft is less than two weeks away and there are plenty of storylines heading into it. Let’s take a look at some of the most intruiging headlines.

Skill Position Galore

The top 12 picks in the draft could have 5 quarterbacks taken, 3 wide receivers, and a tight end. It would be one of the heaviest drafts on skill position players at the top of the draft ever. These players are supposed to make immediate impacts on the teams anticipated to draft them. With so many teams needing a quarterback, these top 8 picks could see 5 quarterbacks taken.

Teams Looking to Trade Up

The top candidates to trade up in the draft are teams looking to get in the top 10 to get their new potential franchise quarterback. Look for the Las Vegas Raiders to be a strong contender to do so. At 13 the Raiders or another team like the Denver Broncos at No. 12 or the Minnesota Vikings at No. 11 would be top candidates to trade up. To get one of the top four quarterbacks they would likely have to trade up to four.

How Will these Quarterbacks Fall?

The top four picks are projected to be quarterbacks with all teams desperately needing one and with other teams trying to trade up like we mentioned above. It seems that Caleb Williams is safe to go No. 1 but then it is anyone’s guess how it goes from there. Jayden Daniels is heavily favorited to go No. 2 and then at No. 3 it looks like either Drake Maye or JJ McCarthy. The 5th QB off the board will be interesting as well with Bo Nix or Michael Penix being the likely pick.
