2024 NFL draft: Updated 2-round mock draft after Week 3

We are headed into Week Four of the NFL season, so it is time for a huge update to our 2024 NFL mock draft. We went with two rounds this time around and thanks to every team having three games in the books, the draft order is completely different than anything we had been using to this point. This means lots of new names in the places this time around.

A few spoilers about this latest update. Five quarterbacks go off the board in the first round and sorry but no running backs this time around.

1 - Chicago Bears - WR Marvin Harrison Jr., Ohio State

Justin Fields get the most electrifying offensive player in the country.

2 - Denver Broncos - QB Caleb Williams, USC

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The rebuild in Denver starts at quarterback with Caleb Williams.

3 - Minnesota Vikings - QB Michael Penix Jr., Washington

The Vikings get their future franchise quarterback in Michael Penix Jr.

4 - Chicago Bears - CB Kool-Aid McKinstry, Alabama

Andrew Wevers-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago goes back on the clock and lands the top cornerback in the draft.

5 - Los Angeles Chargrers - TE Brock Bowers, Georgia

Bowers is a generational type of talent at tight end and a perfect fit for the Chargers.

6 - Las Vegas Raiders - QB Drake Maye, North Carolina

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Drake Maye is too good for the Raiders to pass up at No. 6.

7 - Arizona Cardinals - DL Jer'Zhan Newton, Illinois

Ron Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

With a run on quarterbacks, the Cardinals opt for the top interior defensive lineman in the draft instead.

8 - Tennessee Titans - WR Malik Nabers, LSU

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Nabers has quickly worked his way to the top of the first round with his all-around game.

9 - Cincinnati Bengals - OT Olumuyiwa Fashanu, Penn State

It’s hard to imagine Olumuyiwa Fashanu lasts this long but if so, the Bengals run to the podium.

10 - Jacksonville Jaguars - CB Kalen King, Penn State

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Kalen King is a lockdown cornerback with elite speed to bolter the Jaguars secondary.

11 - New York Jets - QB Bo Nix, Oregon

The future starts now for the Jets with Bo Nix.

12 - New England Patriots - Joe Alt, Notre Dame

Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Not a sexy pick but Alt is an elite run blocker and pass protector for the Patriots.

13 - Arizona Cardinals - WR Emeka Egbuka, Ohio State

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Egbuka hasn’t had a fast starter but his traits are still elite.

14 - New York Giants - EDGE Jared Verse, Florida State

Rich Storry-USA TODAY Sports

Another case of teams selecting need first and letting an elite prospect fall too far.

15 - Los Angeles Rams - DT Leonard Taylor III, Miami

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Leonard Taylor is a massive interior defender with an amazing first step and impressive power.

16 - New Orleans Saints - CB Cooper DeJean, Iowa

Cooper DeJean is a perfect hybrid cornerback/safety for the Saints with his elite speed.

The Bucs roll the dice on the biggest wildcard in the draft.

18 - Dallas Cowboys - DL Laiatu Latu, UCLA

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys love explosive defenders who can move around the formation and Latu fits the bill.

19 - Green Bay Packers - DL Kris Jenkins, Michigan

The Packers need more muscle up front and Jenkins gives it to them.

20 - Houston Texans - WR Keon Coleman, Florida State

Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans are building a great young offense and Coleman is a serious weapon for CJ Stroud.

21 - Buffalo Bills - OT Graham Barton, Duke

Jaylynn Nash-USA TODAY Sports

Barton is the hard-nosed blocker the Bills need to help out Josh Allen and the Bills run game.

22 - Washington Commanders - EDGE Chop Robinson, Penn State

With Chase Young’s future up in the air, the Commanders add Chop Robinson to rush the passer.

23 - Seattle Seahawks - DT Maason Smith, LSU

Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

Smith is an athletic big man who can really get after the quarterback.

24 - Baltimore Ravens - DB Kamren Kinchens, Miami

The Ravens love to draft defense and draft great athletes so Kinchens makes perfect sense.

25 - Detroit Lions - CB Josh Newton, TCU

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Long, fluid mover with excellent ball skills.

26 - Kansas City Chiefs - WR Adonai Mitchell, Texas


The Chiefs cannot ignore the need for a wide receiver and Mitchell brings the deep speed they miss.

Gary Cosby Jr.-USA TODAY Sports

Another excellent edge defender who slips a little and could be a bargain.

28 - Indianapolis Colts - OT JC Latham, Alabama

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Powerful run blocker with a ton of experience against top defenders.

29 - Pittsburgh Steelers - DB Tyler Nubin, Minnesota
