Here is the first-round draft order following the full NFL schedule. The Chicago Bears are guaranteed the first overall  pick from the Carolina Panthers as a result of the trade last spring.  They also hold their own #1 pick, the 9th overall selection.

The NFL Draft selection order is based on the 2024 NFL standings plus the NFL Draft tiebreaking procedures. Picks 1-18 are the non-playoff teams, with the order decided by the draft tiebreakers. Tied positions rotate up in the succeeding rounds. Positions 19 through 32 are based on playoff game results and tiebreakers are used if necessary.

Currently Carolina & Cleveland do not have 2024 1st round picks
