2024 NFL Draft Results

The 2024 NFL draft results for the first round are complete. There were no surprises with the first pick. As expected, USC quarterback Caleb Williams was selected by the Chicago Bears.  LSU QB1 Jayden Daniels went #2 to the Washington Commanders, and TarHeel QB Drake May went third to the New England Patriots. We did take a break for a few picks on taking quarterbacks until the first surprise occurred. The Falcons took Michael Penix, Jr. with the eighth pick of the draft over Michigan QB JJ McCarthy

When Does the Rest of the 2024 NFL Draft Take Place? 

The 2024 NFL Draft takes three days to complete all seven rounds of the draft. The second and third rounds are on Friday. These rounds are shown on ABC, ESPN2, NFL Network, and NFL+ at 7PM Eastern Time. The fourth through the seventh rounds are on Saturday, April 27th, 2024. These rounds kick off at 12 PM ET. 

As the draft proceeds, teams progressively get less time to make their picks. The first round allotted up to 10 minutes per team. The second round 7, rounds three through six you get five minutes per pick, and the 7th round is four minutes. Once the draft wraps up, we’ll all be waiting for the finalized NFL regular season schedules to come out in a few weeks. 

2024 NFL Draft Results – First Round

The Minnesota Vikings pulled off the first trade of the 2024 NFL Draft. They swapped picks with the New York Jets to go #10. They did this so they could pick quarterback JJ McCarthy. The draft was crazy heavy with quarterbacks early. Six going by the 12th pick. This was the first time ever that we had 14 offensive players picked in a row in the first round. Craziness! The Falcons taking Michael Penix, Jr. with the eighth pick was the biggest surprise of the 2024 NFL Draft results.
