April is a significant month not just for Major League Baseball's return and the kickoff of the NBA and NHL playoffs but also for the NFL, which takes center stage with its annual draft.

During this event, teams choose players from college, aiming to find individuals who can elevate them into Super Bowl contenders (we're looking at you, Chicago Bears) or maintain their status as title contenders (hello, Kansas City Chiefs).

The 2024 NFL draft is scheduled to take place from April 25 to April 27. Keep reading for further insights into this event.

What should we expect from this year's draft?

USC quarterback Caleb Williams, who earned the Heisman Trophy as the top college player in the 2022 season, is anticipated to be the first overall pick, heading to the Chicago Bears.

It's not uncommon for quarterbacks to be chosen with the top pick. Last year, Bryce Young from the University of Alabama was selected first by the Carolina Panthers. Since the 2000 draft, quarterbacks have been taken with the No. 1 pick 17 times.

Another standout quarterback expected to be drafted high is LSU's Jayden Daniels, the recent Heisman Trophy winner. Additionally, quarterbacks like North Carolina's Drake Maye, Michigan's J.J. McCarthy, Oregon's Bo Nix, and Washington's Michael Penix Jr. are among the high-profile prospects likely to be drafted early this year.
