Who has the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft? 

The Chicago Bears, who finished the 2023 season with a 7-10 record, own the first overall pick for this year's NFL Draft after acquiring it from the Carolina Panthers last year, along with three draft picks in last year's draft and wide receiver D.J. Moore, in exchange for the first overall selection last year's draft. The Panthers used that selection to draft quarter

Chicago previously had the first overall pick in 1941 and 1947. They drafted halfback Tom Harmon in 1941 after he won the 1941 Heisman Trophy and was a two-time All-American with Michigan. However, Harmon decided to pursue a career in radio and the movies instead of playing football for the Bears.

The Bears selected halfback Bob Fenimore with the first pick in the 1947 draft and went on to play only one season, rushing for 189 yards with one touchdown in 10 games before retiring after the season due to injury.


Who is expected to be selected first overall in the 2024 NFL Draft? 

Nothing is confirmed until commissioner Roger Goodell steps up to the podium for the official announcement, but there's a good chance the Bears will select a quarterback with the No. 1 pick. 

Possibilities include USC's Caleb Williams, North Carolina's Drake Maye, LSU's Jayden Daniels and Michigan's J.J. McCarthy.

Other big names that are expected to drafted in the top 10 include Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers, Washington wide receiver Rome Odunze, Georgia tight end Brock Bowers, and Alabama edge rusher Dallas Turner, among others.

Since the first NFL Draft in 1936, 35 quarterbacks have been selected first overall, the most in any position, followed by running backs with 23 and defensive linemen with 16.
