Everything You Need to Know about the 2024 NFL Draft

It’s draft time again in the NFL!

The first round of this year’s NFL Draft begins on April 26th. Over three days, the 32 teams will select hundreds of talents for the NFL. So that you are perfectly prepared, you will find all the answers to the 2024 draft here.

It’s that special time of year. For weeks people are puzzling and discussing which teams the future stars could end up with. The tension remains at its peak until the final names are read out. After the two mega shows in Las Vegas and Kansas City, the NFL Draft is setting up its tents in Detroit this year.

The 89th draft in NFL history will take place in the Autostadt in April. The 32 teams are allowed to select the sport’s greatest young talents one after the other for three days. The special thing: To keep the NFL exciting, the worst teams from last season are allowed to draft first.

This is how the draft works

  • Since 1994, the NFL Draft has consisted of seven rounds
  • The NFL teams select their new talents one by one
  • As soon as the first round of the draft has started, the so-called “draft clock” starts.
  • In the first round, each team has ten minutes to select a player
  • The teams only have seven minutes left in the second round
  • In all other draft rounds (3 to 7), teams must make their selection within five minutes.
  • The last pick of the draft (last player in the seventh round) is also affectionately known as “Mr. Irrelevant”.

NFL Draft 2024: The schedule

In total, the 2024 draft consists of 256 draft picks. The picks are divided into seven rounds, which are in turn spread over different “draft days”.

Draft roundDay1Friday (April 26)2 to 3 Saturday (April 27)4 to 7Saturday (April 28)

Of course, the greatest talents will be drafted in the first round on Friday. The most talented and successful players from recent college years will then look for their new home in the NFL.

Days 2 and 3 of the draft take place on Saturday morning and Saturday evening. In the later rounds, teams will look for the famous needle in a haystack. A good example of this is the LA Rams. Los Angeles selected wide receiver Puka Nacua in the fifth round of the draft last year. Nacua, who had an outstanding first NFL season, ultimately even became an “Offensive Rookie of the Year” candidate.

    The top players in the 2024 NFL Draft

    Probably the biggest name in this year’s draft is USC quarterback Caleb Williams (22). The American has been considered a top talent for several years; at college, the playmaker was often compared to Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (28). And in fact: The strength of his throwing and his strikingly creative playing style are actually somewhat reminiscent of Mahomes.

    In addition to Caleb Williams, there are a few other strong college quarterbacks in the draft. Drake Maye (21/North Carolina) or Heisman Trophy winner Jayden Daniels (23/LSU) could both also be in the conversation for a top-3 draft pick.

    The most prominent non-quarterback in the 2024 draft is undoubtedly Marvin Harrison Jr. (21/Ohio State). The young wide receiver is perhaps the greatest wide receiver talent in recent years. His college highlights are sure to make any football fan ecstatic and are perfect to get you in the draft mood!
