The first round of the 2024 NFL Draft is in the books, and it was an eventful one. Quarterbacks were selected with each of the first three picks led by Caleb Williams, who was selected by the Chicago Bears with the first overall pick. Jayden Daniels went second to the Washington Commanders, and the New England Patriots snagged Drake Maye with the third pick.

The Arizona Cardinals broke the QB-selecting streak by selecting wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. fourth overall. Clearly an early emphasis was placed on offense, as the first defensive player didn't come off the board until the Indianapolis Colts selected edge rusher Laiatu Latu with the 15th pick.

After all that early action, fans are eager for more. Here's everything you need to know about the second day of the draft, including start time and what rounds will take place.
