NFL Draft Number 4 Overall Pick Odds: Marvin Harrison Jr. favored to be picked at -250

With the 2024 NFL Draft nearing, let's take a look at the favorites to be selected with the No. 4 overall pick.

The Arizona Cardinals hold the fourth pick after a 4-13 season, and with Kyler Murray at quarterback, it's thought that they will be the first team to not select a signal-caller in Thursday's first round. That said, Cardinals general manager Monti Ossenfort has said the team is fielding calls about trades for the pick.

Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is the favorite to be picked at No. 4 heading into the draft, and he's followed in the market by three quarterbacks, indicating the possibility of a trade.

2024 NFL Draft: Number 4 Overall Pick Odds

Marvin Harrison Jr.


J.J. McCarthy


Drake Maye


Jayden Daniels


Marvin Harrison Jr.

Former Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is regarded by experts as the best talent in this draft, and since plenty of teams picking early in the draft need a quarterback, he is likely to fall to the fourth pick at least.

Whoever selects Harrison will count themselves lucky as the wideout posted 1,211 yards and 14 touchdown receptions on 67 catches in 2023, averaging 18.1 yards per catch in his third collegiate season.

At 6-foot-3 and with great hands and route-running ability, the son of NFL Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison Sr. will be a coveted prospect.

J.J. McCarthy

Quarterback J.J. McCarthy led Michigan to the National Championship during the 2023 college football season, but his draft stock did not rise until the pre-draft process was firmly underway.

He didn't get to show his full capabilities in Michigan's system that emphasized ball control, posting a 72.3 completion percentage with 2,991 passing yards and 22 touchdowns to 4 interceptions in his title-winning campaign.

Clearly, he impressed teams at the NFL Combine, his pro day and in interviews with teams.

Drake Maye

North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye was viewed as the second-best quarterback in the 2024 draft - behind consensus top pick Caleb Williams - for much of the 2023 college football season, but his status as the projected No. 2 pick has been put into question with the rise of McCarthy and reigning Heisman winner Jayden Daniels.

Maye won ACC Player of the Year in his first season as a starter with a 38-7 TD-INT ratio, plus 4,321 passing yards on a 66.2 completion percentage.

He regressed in his second season with 3,608 passing yards, 24-9 TD-INT, and a 63.3 completion percentage, but his strong arm, height and mobility make him a top prospect.

Jayden Daniels

Jayden Daniels won the Heisman Trophy in 2023 thanks to proving himself as a true dual-threat quarterback for LSU.

He threw for 3,812 yards on a 72.2 completion percentage, tossing 40 touchdowns and only four interceptions. On the ground, he picked up 1,134 yards - averaging 8.4 yards per carry - and 10 scores.

Daniels only had one season of truly elite play in college, but he showed plenty of promise in 2022. Where he gets drafted will likely depend on the systems teams plan to implement and whether he fits.
