Jayden Daniels NFL Draft Projection: Where Will The LSU QB Land?

Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

The 2023 Heisman Trophy winner is looking towards the next chapter of his journey when the 2024 NFL Draft will be held on April 25-27 in Detroit, Michigan (ESPN). Former LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels completed his senior season converting 236-of-327 passes (72.2% completion) for 3,812 yards (11.7 yards average) with a whopping 40 touchdowns to four interceptions and a quarterback rating of 208, fast becoming a darling across Louisiana sports betting.

The five-year starter (three with Arizona State, two with LSU) and 2023 consensus All-American should be a first round pick, but where is the question. LouisianaBets.com sorted out the possibilities and provided probable odds on where the 6-foot-4, 210-pound San Bernardino, California native might land. Below is where we think he could geaux.

Jayden Daniels NFL Draft Landing Spot Odds

Team Percentage Chance Odds
NE Patriots 40% +150
Washington Commanders 20.0% +400
Atlanta Falcons 12.5% +700

Will Jayden Daniels Be A Top 10 Pick?

The strongest favorite to land Daniels are the New England Patriots (4-13, No. 3 pick) at +150 (40% chance). The pick would immediately give new head coach Jerod Mayo a dual threat at the position and would provide competition to their other quarterback Mac Jones (should they want to go that route). Keep in mind that you can use Louisiana sportsbook promos when betting on where players will go in the NFL draft, just like Jayden Daniels. 

New Washington Commanders (4-13, No. 2) head coach Dan Quinn would love to start anew with a new quarterback, but he already has former North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell, who was chosen in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft. He has a year of experience and has untapped potential. A competition could be beneficial for both. 

Yet another new head coach Raheem Morris of the Atlanta Falcons (7-10, picking No. 8) has the chance of keeping the dual-threat quarterback still in the Southern region. The pick of Daniels would boost the Falcons fanbase with enthusiasm and energy. 

The remaining teams include: New York Giants (6-11, No. 6) at +1200 (7.7%), Minnesota Vikings (7-10, No. 11) at +1500 (6.2%) and the Las Vegas Raiders (8-9, No. 13) at +1500 (6.2%). 

Other teams not on the list also come in at +1500 (6.2%).
