(USA Today Images)[/caption] With the initial wave of NFL free agency in the books, it's officially NFL Draft season. As of Monday, it's 38 days until the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft begins on April 25. Now that the draft is the next major even on the NFL calendar, every Monday from today through draft week will be Mock Draft Monday here on, powered by U.S. Pavement. We'll have some sort of mock draft content to start the week, each week.

For those who missed its debut last year, this is like the Patriots Mailbag we do during the regular season but instead of sending questions, people submit mock drafts for me to react to. I see you guys replying to my tweets with mock drafts all year an unfortunately can't respond to them all, so this is my attempt to get to as many as I can. As we go through, there may be picks or trades that overlap from mock to mock. I’ll comment on a player, pick, trade, etc. the first time it comes up, but know that comment carries over to other mocks that present the same situation even if I don't highlight it again. The goal is to try to highlight as many players and scenarios as possible, using part of as many possible mock drafts as you guys sent in. If you missed submitting a mock this week, don't worry! There will be at least two more Mock Draft Mailbags later this spring. For now though, let's get started with 2024 Mock Draft Mailbag 1.0! Note: The way these tweets are displayed, some of the mocks are cropped. You’ll have to open them in Twitter to see the full draft.
