At this point, it’s still unclear which prospects will even declare for the 2024 NFL Draft. There are some guarantees due to their class or their pro stock, but stars seemingly emerge every year out of nowhere. Before his senior season at LSU, Joe Burrow was an afterthought within NFL circles.

Who are the top quarterback prospects in 2024?

It all starts with Caleb Williams.

The 2022 Heisman Trophy winner was dominant in his first season at USC, throwing for 42 touchdowns and rushing for 10 more. He will be draft-eligible in 2024 after his junior season, and he’s already being penciled in as the No. 1 overall pick.

Beyond Williams, there are several other intriguing signal-callers who could enter the 2024 draft. North Carolina’s Drake Maye could challenge Williams for the top spot after totaling 45 touchdowns in 2022, his first season as a starter.

Washington’s Michael Penix Jr., Jackson State’s Shedeur Sanders, LSU’s Jayden Daniels and Texas’ Quinn Ewers are among the other quarterbacks to watch.

Who has the most first-round picks in 2024?

Thirty of the 32 NFL teams are currently scheduled to pick in the first round in 2024.

The Cleveland Browns and Carolina Panthers have already traded their 2024 first-round picks. The Browns’ pick is owned by the Houston Texans after the Deshaun Watson trade, while the Panthers’ pick goes to the Chicago Bears after they moved up for the No. 1 overall pick in 2023.

So, Chicago and Houston have two first-round picks in 2024. Cleveland and Carolina don’t have any first-round picks in 2024. Every other team, as of now, owns its 2024 first-rounder.
