2024 NFL Mock Draft: Five QBs selected in Colin Cowherd’s 12-pick mock


The 2024 NFL Draft is less than a month away, and Colin Cowherd has entered the mock draft fray by predicting the first 12 picks of April’s draft. Cowherd said his mock draft comes not only based on his own opinions but also based on talking to NFL sources — and that he expects several trades as the draft is loaded with quarterbacks, wide receivers and “the best offensive tackle [class] ever.”

Here are Cowherd’s picks with his full thoughts, starting with the Chicago Bears at No. 1.

1. Chicago Bears (from Carolina Panthers) — QB Caleb Williams, USC

Cowherd’s thoughts: “[General manager] Ryan Poles has shifted this last year to offense. They bring in Keenan Allen, D’Andre Swift, Gerald Everett, last year D.J. Moore. Poles, a former offensive lineman, started building up this offensive line three years ago with draft capital.

2. Washington Commanders — QB Drake Maye, UNC

Cowherd’s thoughts: “Big, strong and sturdy. The Commanders had a bad offensive line — Sam Howell got sacked more than any quarterback [last season] — you’re not going to for a spindly quarterback in cold weather. They need a Justin Herbert clone.”

3. New England Patriots — QB Jayden Daniels, LSU

Cowherd’s thoughts: “I don’t if it’s going to work, but the Patriots need playmakers. They don’t have those on the outside, and Jayden Daniels is a playmaker. He’s got some Lamar Jackson. He’ll run around and throw it around. They’re nine games under .500 since Tom Brady left. And [Daniels] actually fits — I just don’t know if Jerod Mayo,…
