The 2024 NFL Draft is officially upon us and take it from someone who lives in the suburbs of Detroit, the city is absolutely buzzing.

This is one of the coolest events to come to Detroit in some time and the city is ready. The action kicks off on Thursday night with the first round and then continues into Friday and Saturday and each day will see a packed crowd as fans from around the world are headed to Detroit.

Fans of the Chicago Bears, Washington Commanders, and New England Patriots are especially invested in Thursday's festivities because, as of hours before the draft, they have the top three picks. Sure, we'll likely see plenty of trades on Thursday night, but the Bears are going to hold on to that top pick and likely select a quarterback (could this be a freezing cold take soon?).

If you're anything like me, you're ecstatic about the draft process and as a Lions fan, I'm excited to see who Detroit selects to bolster an already Super Bowl-caliber roster.

If you're not around a TV and just want to see who your favorite team has picked in the first round, we've got you covered as well as some grades for the top picks.

So without further ado, let's see who is selected where in round one and check out some of the top picks' grades.
