Five Quarterbacks Taken in Top 15, Bills Acquire Wide Receiver after Diggs Trade

Following the trade of Stefon Diggs, the Buffalo Bills selected a wide receiver with their first-round pick. Meanwhile, five quarterbacks were selected in the top 15 of the 2024 NFL Draft, a testament to the depth of talent at the position.

Michael Penix Jr., despite his divisive reputation, showcased his first-round potential at his Pro Day, demonstrating his arm strength and athleticism. Other notable prospects, such as Jayden Daniels, Malik Nabers, Brian Thomas Jr., and Drake Maye, all impressed scouts and earned first-round consideration.

The Carolina Panthers, with their top-five pick, opted for Maye, a local product who has drawn comparisons to Justin Fields. The Chicago Bears and New York Jets also used their top-ten picks on quarterbacks, with E.J. Warner and Cade Klubnik, respectively.

The San Francisco 49ers, with the No. 12 pick, made a surprising move by trading up to secure Anthony Richardson. The former Florida Gator is a raw talent with immense physical tools, and the 49ers hope to develop him into their future franchise quarterback.

Rounding out the top 15 quarterback selections were Quinn Ewers to the Las Vegas Raiders and Evan Stewart to the Indianapolis Colts. Stewart, a dynamic playmaker from Texas A&M, is expected to complement Michael Pittman Jr. and give the Colts a potent passing attack.
