Projected Pick: 2nd to 8th (Top 10)

Another dynamic dual-threat quarterback who has all the physical tools to be the next great quarterback of the NFL is the former LSU Tigers Heisman Trophy Award winner Jayden Daniels.

Daniels, who is coming off throwing for 3,812 yards showcased his ability to stand in the pocket to make nearly any throw possible while also completing 72.2 percent of his passes. In addition, his ability to make plays with his feet will make it difficult for opposing teams to build a true game plan each week.

Position: Quarterback

Projected Pick: #1

In at number one on the Top 10 NFL Draft Prospects 2024 Rankings list, everyone’s NFL Mock Draft, is the former USC Trojans quarterback and potential first overall pick during the 2024 NFL Draft.

Williams should remain as the number one overall draft prospect leading up to the draft barring an injury or other issue that presents itself.

In each of his previous two seasons, Williams has completed at least 66 percent of his pass attempts while throwing for at least 30 touchdowns and running for at least 10 rushing touchdowns in both seasons.
