USC’s Caleb Williams, LSU’s Jayden Daniels, North Carolina’s Drake Maye and Michigan’s JJ McCarthy are regarded as the “big four” quarterback prospects in the 2024 NFL Draft that begins on Thursday.

While Caleb Williams is a shoo-in to go first overall to the Chicago Bears, it’s anybody’s guess which order the other three will go in. For a while, Maye was the giant favorite to go second overall in the NFL Draft to the Washington Commanders, but Jayden Daniels has since overtaken the Tar Heels standout.

Citing a source, Antonio Brown’s CTESPN Network reports that Drake Maye is actually falling down the draft board of several clubs. According to CTESPN, teams have become “concerned about his poise and ability to play in stressful situations.”

Though you should take anything Brown says with a grain of salt, it’s worth noting that CTESPN Network reported the Russell Wilson-Pittsburgh Steelers news before other prominent NFL insiders announced it.

Though Drake Maye is still likely to be a top-10 pick, you just never know when a highly-touted QB prospect will fall in the draft. It happened with Aaron Rodgers in 2005, Brady Quinn in 2007 and Will Levis just last year.

Which Teams Could Target Drake Maye In NFL Draft?

Assuming Drake Maye isn’t a top-two pick, the New England Patriots are certainly a strong candidate to take him at No. 3. If not, keep an eye on the New York Giants (No. 6), Minnesota Vikings (No .11), and Denver Broncos (No. 12).

Both the Vikings and Broncos have been widely reported as strong candidates to trade up in the draft. Minnesota obtained a second first-round pick this year (23rd overall) in a trade with the Houston Texans, leading many to believe that they’ll package their two day one picks to move up for a QB.

Drake Maye has a high skill set and could very well be a franchise-changing quarterback. If none of the teams in the top-10 want him, look for a QB-needy club to trade up and take a chance on the big-armed signal-caller.
