If you're wanting to go ahead and get your calendar settled as far out as possible, we can't blame you. After all, the level of anticipation we have for the annual first-year player draft in the National Football League has us looking forward to it every year from the moment the last event is completed.

The 2024 NFL Draft is scheduled to happen from Thursday, April 25, 2024, to Saturday, April 27, 2024, in Detroit, Michigan. The Motor City was awarded the NFL Draft following the successful weekend of festivities in Kansas City last spring. The 2025 edition, by the way, will stay in the NFC North with a visit to Green Bay.

The 2024 NFL Draft is set to take place in Detroit, Michigan during the last weekend in April.

As for the draft itself, this year's draft should be noted as the Caleb Williams draft when all is said and done. While it feels early to claim the top overall pick before the college season even begins, NFL teams have been salivating over the chance to potentially have the USC product as their starting quarterback for quite some time.

As for the rest of the draft, the drama involved is why we look forward to it so much. Prospective players will gather in the green room or at home, waiting for their chance to be chosen by teams, getting the call that makes their lifelong dreams come true. Meanwhile, general managers and coacheswill be making strategic decisions in the hopes that they are laying a solid foundation for years to come.

While we wait for the draft, bide your time by following your favorite team, stay tuned in for college prospects and use the NFL Draft simulators that are out there early and often to make your own mock drafts.
