The 2024 NFL Draft is still three months away and for fans of teams that won’t be participating in the postseason, April can’t get here soon enough.

Here is the current draft order with Week 18 winding down, according to Tankathon.

Note: Team needs are built out based on the projected free agents and are not necessarily a reflection of the current situation. Some team needs are more for depth rather than an immediate starter.
