2024 NFL Mock Draft 1.0: The Way-Too-Early-Version

1. Arizona Cardinals: QB Caleb Williams (USC)

Assuming Arizona finishes with the worst record in football, the Kyler Murray era will end one way or another. Caleb Williams is simply too talented of a player to pass up here. Among the QBs coming out of the draft over the last decade, Williams looks like one of the best bets to be a franchise signal-caller.

Aside from the clear charisma he plays with, the skill-set is supremely gifted. Williams gets terrific velocity on his throws — both from inside and outside the pocket. His improvisational skills are special yet calculated. Williams won’t be reckless with the football. A strong, bulky frame enables him to break tackles — and the feel inside the pocket Williams possesses is insanely good for a player his age. Arizona would be doing cartwheels to have the chance in selecting him.
