TRADE DEADLINE: – Georgia Bulldogs QB Stetson Bennett rejected $94.4 million offer from the …see more-NFL.….

We’re one month away from the 2024 NFL draft. The 2023 season is long over, and we’ve seen top prospects make their cases at all-star events, the combine and pro days. There is still time for change as we learn more and more about how all 32 teams plan to approach the draft, but we’re certainly getting a clearer picture of how this class stacks up — and who could get drafted.

So it seems like a good time to predict all 257 names that will be called — and when they will be called over the course of seven rounds. I found landing spots for 11 quarterbacks, including five in Round 1. And two of those first-round passers were picked here after projected trades up the board.

Here are my predictions for Rounds 1-7. I provided complete breakdowns for the first three rounds then picked my favorite fit in each Day 3 round. Let’s get to it, starting with the Bears’ easy call at No. 1 and wrapping up with Mr. Irrelevant for the Jets at No. 257. (Compensatory picks are denoted with an asterisk.)

The Bears trading Justin Fields to Pittsburgh cements their selection of a quarterback at No. 1 overall. Williams is not only the best one in this class, but also the best of the past decade. A talented creator under center, he accounted for 120 touchdowns in his three-year college career (93 passing, 27 rushing) to just 14 interceptions. The Bears have built a fantastic supporting cast, allowing Williams the chance to see instant success. He’ll be a Week 1 starter and could have a C.J. Stroud-like impact here.
