2024 NFL Draft Top 50 Big Board: Drake Maye or Jayden Daniels? 5 QBs, 11 OL and a new CB1 post-Senior Bowl

With the conclusion of the Senior Bowl, college all-star game season is in the rearview, the NFL combine is just a few weeks away, and in fact, as I write this, we’re 81 days from the 2024 NFL Draft. Which means we’re no more than 81 days from learning, for the second straight year, what the Bears will do with the first-overall pick, and exactly how many quarterbacks end up going in the top 10 — and in the first-round altogether. 

Put another way, there’s a long way to go and much to be sorted. For now, though, it’s my latest top-50 Big Board, post-Senior Bowl edition.

Let’s get to it.

1. Caleb Williams, QB, Southern California
2. Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State
3. Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State
4. Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame
5. Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Caleb Williams remains QB1 because he’s a truly special talent. His 2023 season had its ebbs and flows, but he consistently elevated that USC offense, despite a suspect offensive line and a defense that struggled to stop anyone. As I’ve said for months, the biggest issue with Williams has little to do with his football-playing ability, but how involved his father might be in his professional future. Because on the field, he’s the best quarterback in this class and, as we sit here, it’s not particularly close. (That’s not to say we could all be having a different conversation in a few years; 12 months ago, had Williams been eligible, he would’ve been QB1 despite C.J. Stroud also being in the draft class.)

I’m higher on Olu Fashanu and Joe Alt than others, but the thinking is that a) Fashanu just turned 21 and he’s one of the best athletes in the entire class. He had an uneven season at times for Penn State, but he possesses special physical gifts. Alt, meanwhile, isn’t the athlete that Fashanu is, but he’s a better technician at this point in his journey, and his 2023 tape proved that he’s more than capable of playing left tackle in the…
