Ray’s 2-Round NFL Mock Draft


  1. Chicago Bears: Caleb Williams, QB, USC

This is pretty cut and dry at this point, as it was even a month ago. Williams is an elite quarterback prospect and has a tremendously high ceiling. 

  1. Washington Commanders: Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

It’s obvious that Washington will select a quarterback but which one is a good argument. After signing Marcus Mariota, signs are pointing to Daniels who is an exceptional athlete with a strong arm and a ton of upside.

  1. New England Patriots: Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

The Patriots could look to trade out of this spot but I’m not sure that would be the best option. Marvin Harrison Jr. is an exceptional prospect but passing a potential franchise quarterback could be even more hurtful. 

  1. Arizona Cardinals: Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio St.

I definitely believe this pick is in play to possibly get traded but the Cardinals have the opportunity to get one of the elite wide receiving prospects we have seen. The Cardinals might be enticed by additional picks but this could be too good to pass up. 

  1. TRADE! Minnesota Vikings (from LAC): J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Vikings get: 5th overall, 2025 fourth round selection

Chargers get: 11th overall, 23rd overall, 2025 first round selection

The Vikings move up to get their quarterback. The Chargers will not move on from Justin Herbert so they can auction this pick off to the highest bidder which will see a very high cost for the Vikings to move up. 

  1. New York Giants: Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Nabers is a very special talent who will end up being an All Pro wide receiver and while the Giants are talking about taking a quarterback they may just be drumming up interest in hopes of trading the pick. 

  1. Tennessee Titans: Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

The Titans made a couple of big offseason addition by adding Calvin Ridley, Tony Pollard and Lloyd Cushenberry to assist Will Levis but will need to still improve the offensive line. Alt is the best tackle in the class and will start from day 1. 

  1. Atlanta Falcons: Dallas Turner, Edge, Alabama

The Falcons have had a pass rushing issue for awhile and in a draft that isn’t particularly deep with edge rushers the Falcons can take the top one on the board. 

  1. TRADE: Pittsburgh Steelers: Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

Steelers get: 9th overall

Bears get: 20th overall, 84th overall, 2025 2nd round pick

The Steelers have been aggressive in trying to find another solid receiver and have been linked to Odunze for a while. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them be aggressive and go get a player they love in the draft. 

  1. New York Jets: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

The Jets are surround Aaron Rodgers with weapons and Brock Bowers is an elite tight end prospect that give them another very good player in the passing game.

  1. Los Angeles Chargers (from MIN): Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

Mitchell has been a high riser throughout the season and skyrocketed over the past two months and with good reason. Mitchell is a fast, long cornerback who has very good ball skills. 

  1. TRADE Dallas Cowboys: Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn St.

Cowboys receive: 12th overall, 203rd overall

Broncos receiver: 24th overall, 56th overall, 174th overall, 2025 third round pick

The Broncos are going to look to move down if the top quarterbacks are not within their reach and they can recoup a second round pick that they had to give up for Sean Payton. Fashanu is a very good left tackle prospect who can help protect Dak Prescott’s blindside. 

  1. Las Vegas Raiders: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

Arnold could easily be the top cornerback off the board in this draft. The Raiders could use another starting cornerback and Arnold has great length and athleticism. 

  1. New Orleans Saints: Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon St.

Trevor Penning has been a disappointment and the Saints could use a new offensive tackle. While he started last year at right tackle there’s no doubt that he can start at left tackle in the NFL. 

  1. Indianapolis Colts: Brian Thomas, WR, LSU

While wide receiver isn’t the Colts biggest need after locking up Michael Pittman, adding a tall, fast receiver like Brian Thomas can help create a lot of mismatch problems on the outside. Pittman and Thomas can form a difficult tandem for opposing defenses.

  1. Seattle Seahawks: Troy Fautanu, iOL, Washington

The Seahawks get an instant upgrade inside and a guy who can really help anchor their interior offensive line. 

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

The Jaguars have been rumored to be going after top tier receivers via trade as well as they tried to bring back Calvin Ridley. With that being said getting a young wide receiver who is under control without a huge contract could be even more appealing. Mitchell has a ton of talent and will be a great fit in the Jags offense. 

  1. Cincinnati Bengals: JC Latham, OT, Alabama

The Bengals just brought in Trent Brown but it was on a 1 year deal and they will be looking for an upgrade maybe even at midseason. Latham can play both left and right tackle and could be the second tackle off the board in April. 

  1. Los Angeles Rams: Byron Murphy, DL, Texas

When Aaron Donald decided to retire it left a significant hole in the middle of the Rams defense. While it’s impossible to replace the future Hall of Famer, Byron Murphy can be a disruptive force and will work nicely into the Rams rotation. 

  1. Chicago Bears (from PIT): Jared Verse, Edge, Florida St. 

The Bears move down and get the pass rusher the may have taken at 9 anyways. Verse has a great skillet and can be a double digit sack guy in the NFL. 

  1. Miami Dolphins: Jackson Powers-Johnson, iOL, Oregon

The Dolphins brought in Aaron Brewer to play center but Powers-Johnson can play guard as well, he won’t be a center only in the NFL. He has position flexibility in the interior offensive line and should start immediately.

  1. Philadelphia Eagles: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

The Eagles could use some depth and youth at cornerback and Nate Wiggins biggest knock is he is a little light but that didn’t stop the Eagles from taking Devonta Smith.

  1. Los Angeles Chargers (from MIN): Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

The Chargers need some help at wide receiver and Jim Harbaugh gets a guy who committed to Michigan and then decommitted and ended up at Texas. 

  1. Denver Broncos (from DAL): Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

You will see a lot of mock drafts having the Broncos take Bo Nix, which is certainly plausible but Michael Penix is a better prospect but he has question marks regarding his health. Sean Payton also may see some of Drew Brees in Bo Nix (he would be wrong).

  1. Green Bay Packers: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

David Bakhitari was a staple on the Packers offensive line but spent a lot of the time injured the past 4 years and his time has come to an end with Green Bay. The Packers need a true franchise tackle and Mims shouldn’t go this late but questions about his medicals could push him into this range. 

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Laitu Latu, Edge, UCLA

This is an ideal scenario for the Bucs as they get a high end pass rushing prospect in Latu. He will be an impact player during his rookie season. 

  1. Arizona Cardinals (from HOU): Kool Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

The Cardinals could look at the defensive line with this selection but they brought in 3 new players to compete so adding to the secondary they get a top tier cornerback at the backend of the first round. 

  1. Buffalo Bills: Chop Robinson, Edge, Penn St.

This is another outstanding value of a very good pass rusher falling into the Bills lap. Von Miller’s has some legal issues to deal with but his best years are behind him. Robinson could be a great value here.

  1. Detroit Lions: Cooper DeJean, DB, Iowa

DeJean can certainly stick at cornerback and this is a great spot for him. The Lions may have a hole at cornerback as Cameron Sutton may have some legal issues to deal with.

  1. Baltimore Ravens: Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

It feels like we are mocking a wide receiver to the Ravens every single year….it feels like they are taking a wide receiver every year. McConkey would compliment Zay Flowers very well. 

  1. San Francisco 49ers: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

The 49ers could look to take a wide receiver if they deal Aiyuk or Samuel but adding some offensive line help would be key.

  1. Kansas City Chiefs: Jer’Zhan Newton, DL, Illinois

The popular thing is to mock a wide receiver to the Chiefs, which can certainly happen, however Newton playing next to Chris Jones would be a serious problem for opposing offenses.
