2024 NFL draft: 6 QBs selected in trade-heavy March Madness mock

With the waves of free agency finally receding, NFL teams now look toward the 2024 NFL draft.

While free agency was the place to shore up serious needs, the draft is where teams can find their next foundational piece and build their team from the ground-up. Many different positions will be taken in the first round, but the quarterbacks will be under the biggest microscope in the month leading up to the draft.

Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels and even J.J. McCarthy could all be first-round selections. The allure of a new franchise quarterback could force some teams to trade up. Our two previous mock drafts didn’t include trades that weren’t original - but this one does. A lot of ’em.

They don’t call this time of year March Madness for nothing.

The Houston Texans don’t currently have a first-round pick, though, after the team traded the No. 23 selection to the Minnesota Vikings for two second-round picks. We’ll see if general manager Nick Caserio and company remain there when all is said and done on draft night.

Here’s Texans Wire’s post-post free agency mock draft, featuring a bevy of trades and quarterbacks.
