The 2024 NFL Draft is disproportionately loaded on the offensive side of the ball with quarterbacks, wide receivers and offensive tackles set to dominate Day 1 at a historic rate. The projection below includes only one defender among the top 10 selections and just two in the first half of the first round — numbers more lopsided than in any NFL Draft since the league expanded to 32 teams in 2002. Many have speculated that such a disparity could spark a virtual feeding frenzy of trades. This class might be loaded with top-end talent, but it lacks the depth of most years, with dozens of draft-worthy prospects opting to return to college football, due to the NIL and transfer policies. I think that could stifle trades, with only the boldest willing to peddle extra picks to move up this year.
