1. Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

The wide receiver class could be the best in years, but Ohio State's Marvin Harrison Jr. is miles ahead of the rest and is arguably the top prospect at any position in 2024. Harrison can become the No. 1 wide receiver in the NFL.

His father? Pro Football Hall of Famer, eight-time Pro Bowler, and eight-time All-Pro wide receiver Marvin Harrison Sr.

Harrison Jr. is 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, and is impossible to stop. He runs great routes and catches everything. Any contested catch is his. Harrison has the talent to dominate in the NFL. He has played 21 games for Ohio State since the start of 2022, catching 125 passes for 2,152 yards and 22 touchdowns.

"The best comparison is seven-time Pro Bowler A.J. Green. They both have that blend of size, fluidity and hands," writes NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah.

The Packers may need a top-three pick to have a chance of drafting Harrison. They are currently at No. 6 but don't look like winning a game anytime soon. Green Bay has needed an elite WR1 since trading Davante Adams. Harrison can become that player. He would upgrade the Packers' offense from Day 1 and could quickly become one of the league's best receivers.
