NFL Draft Lottery Picks Prediction

NFL Draft Lottery Picks Prediction

The NFL draft is always one of the most watched professional drafts in the world, and for good reason. There is always so much hype around players, and you can never know who will be good and who won’t. But if you want the perfect draft predictions, come to me. Here are my 2024 NFL lottery picks predictions.

#1- Chicago Bears- QB-Caleb Williams- USC

Williams is easily the best prospect in this draft. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s already in Chicago. Will be the day-one starter for the Bears.

#2- Washington Commanders- QB- Jayden Daniels- LSU

I hope that the Commanders pass on Daniels. As a Patriots fan, I think Daniels will be one of the best QB’s in the league. With his mix of speed and his ability to throw, Daniels is already getting comparisons to Lamar Jackson.

#3- New England Patriots- QB- Drake Maye- North Carolina

personally don’t like Maye as much as Daniels or Williams, but he’s still a decent starter. Maye played in a weak ACC conference and put up crazy numbers, but his 6’4 height should help him. His ceiling as a player is Justin Herbert, and I wouldn’t be mad if the Patriots took him.

#4- Arizona Cardinals- WR- Marvin Harrison Jr- Ohio State

Harrison Jr is the son of NFL Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison. The Ohio State phenom is one of the best WR prospects we’ve seen in a whileHarrison Jr will easily be the WR 1 for the Cardinalsand he is a very safe pick. This is someone who might be in the Hall of Fame in 20 years.

#5- Los Angeles Chargers- OT- Joe Alt- Notre Dame

Alt should be perfect in the Chargers offense. Alt will be one of those players that you just can’t pass on if your Los Angeles, should be a great young Offensive Lineman.

#6- New York Giants- WR- Malik Nabers- LSU

After almost all of the Giants’ offense leaving in the off-season, New York needs some offense now. The guy for the Giants will most likely be Malik Nabers, who is a very athletic player who has shown his elite ability to catch difficult passes and be able to run after the catch. 

#7- Tennessee Titans- OT- Taliese Fuaga- Oregon State

Fuaga is a 6’6/335 lbs monster. He’s been bullying people his entire career, and I don’t expect that to stop. The Titans won’t pass on Joe Alt if he drops to #7, but if he’s off the board, Fuaga is the easy pick for the Titans.

#8- Atlanta Falcons- Edge- Dallas Turner- Alabama

The Falcons have been in desperate need of an Edge for a few years now, and Turner fits that position perfectly. If the Falcons get Turner at #8, then their draft will be a success. Alabama always produces great NFL players, and Turner looks like he will fit that mold.

#9- Chicago Bears- OT- Olumuyiwa Fashanu- Penn State

Some people want the Bears to take a WR with the 9th pick, but if their front office is smart they will take Fashanu. Caleb Williams (the projected #1 pick) played on the same high school team as Fashanu and has gone on record to say that “he would put his life on the line for me” hinting that Fashanu would be the smarter pick for the Bears.

#10- New York Jets- WR- Rome Odunze- Washington

The Jets are fine on defense, and with Aaron Rodgers needing some help on offense, Odunze looks like the perfect pick. The Jets already have WRs Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams, but if the top two Offensive Tackles are both off the board, expect the Jets to go after explosive WR Rome Odunze.

#11- Minnesota Vikings- QB- JJ McCarthy- Michigan

The Vikings are 100% taking a QB with their first selection, and there is a chance that they could trade up, but if McCarthy falls to #11 the Vikings will not miss the opportunity. McCarthy is coming off a National Championship at Michigan, so he knows how to win, and with the lack of QBs on Minnesota’s roster, McCarthy is the best prospect for the Vikings.

#12- Denver Broncos- DT- Byron Murphy II- Texas

Murphy is an explosive interior defender who will add immediate production to the weak Broncos’ defense. The Broncos will either trade this pick with the Eagles or just select Murphy. Some people like him and some not as much, but I think he fits perfectly in the 11-15 pick range

#13- Las Vegas Raiders- QB- Michael Penix Jr- Washington

The Raiders will either go for a defender or a QB and if the Raiders can’t find a way to trade for Jayden Daniels, they might have to settle for Penix. The former Washington star Michael Penix has the speed and arm strength to be an NFL starter, but it will be a risky pick for the Raiders.

#14- New Orleans Saints- OT- JC Latham- Alabama

The Saints need some help on the Offensive Line, and JC Latham will be a perfect fit for the Saints. Latham has played under Nick Saban at Alabama for three years and has progressed into one of the top OT prospects in the draft. He might be more of a long-term prospect, but Latham will impact the game when he’s on the field.

#15- Indianapolis Colts- TE- Brock Bowers- Georgia

A lot of people have Bowers going in the top 10, and I don’t disagree with them, but not many teams are looking to take a Tight End in the lottery. If the Colts trade up, either expect them to select a WR like Rome Odunze, or make sure they can safely select Brock Bowers. If the Colts hold onto the 15th pick, expect them to select either TE Brock Bowers or CB Quinyon Mitchell out of Toledo. 

The chances that all of these picks are correct are slim to none. With the unpredictability of trades or potential injuries, you’ll never know what will happen. With so much talent, it’s impossible to fit them all in the top 15. Here are 5 bonus players who I think will be great in the NFL but won’t go in the lottery.

  1. CB- Quinyon Mitchell- Toledo
  2. CB- Terrion Arnold- Alabama
  3. WR- Xavier Worthy- Texas
  4. WR- Malik Washington- Virginia
  5. WR- Brian Thomas Jr- LSU


The NFL draft starts on Thursday, April 25th at 8:00 p.m. EST. Anything can happen.
