No matter where he lands, Harrison will be one of the most captivating prospects to track throughout the draft process. The team that ultimately makes him their prized pick could be getting a cornerstone player and game-changing talent.

But which teams could find the absolute best value in trading up in the draft to try to snag Harrison, who is projected in most drafts to be selected at No. 4 overall.

  • Los Angeles Chargers (No. 5 Pick)

I’m more than positive that the 2024 LA Chargers bandwagon wheels are already being put into place, and seats are already being filled by people waiting for Jim Harbaugh’s team to hit the field next season.

Just for kicks, why not toy around with the idea of LA making a pick-for-pick swap with the Arizona Cardinals, owners of the No. 4 overall pick in the 2024 draft, to go after Harrison?

Before you start coming up with however many arguments against this move, hear me out.

So, the Chargers need a wideout. Good news: this year’s draft is stacked to the brim with them. After releasing Mike Williams due to salary cap issues and trading Keenan Allen to Chicago, Justin Herbert needs a new top-caliber pass catcher downfield, so why not go for the best one in the 2024 draft class?

Harrison is the crop’s cream, considered one of the best prospects in the last decade.

Now, in any other scenario, a player like Harrison shouldn’t be available at pick No. 5, but the Chargers might get lucky in 2024. The Chicago Bears, Washington Commanders and New England Patriots are all expected to take quarterbacks with the top three picks.

After that, it’s up to the Cardinals, who have the No. 4 pick, to decide. They could draft a quarterback (unlikely) or find a new No. 1 receiver.

With this in mind, two scenarios come to mind.

One, either another team wants to move up and take the fourth quarterback of the draft at No. 4, which would automatically make Harrison fall right into the Chargers’ hands.

Or two, the Chargers make the most significant draft trade in the team’s recent memory and select the Ohio State superstar wideout.

If you still have any doubts, imagine Harrison and Herbert’s NFL prop betting stocks skyrocketing week in and week out because of their playing together. It’s a picture almost too good to pass up.

  • Indianapolis Colts (No. 15 Pick)

NFL football news today are continuously buzzing about Harrison as the draft’s best prospect outside of Caleb Williams. This dude was an absolute terror the past few seasons, racking up over 2,600 yards and 31 TDs in college. Winning the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver only confirms what the tape shows — Harrison is a special talent.

Regarding the NFL draft betting odds, you can bet teams are frothing at the mouth thinking about adding this athletic freak to their offense. The film on Harrison is even better than the numbers.

He glides so smoothly for a big dude, eating up the cushion with his easy speed and elite change-of-direction skills. It reminds me of watching prime A.J. Green out there — that’s a massive compliment for the young buck.

So, with all this said, imagine the Indianapolis Colts, the team in which his father, Marvin Harrison, churned out a Hall Of Fame-worthy career, moving heaven and earth to move up in the draft and selecting Harrison to pair him with the likes of quarterback Anthony Richardson Jr. and Michael Pittman Jr.?

Some Colts players are already campaigning for Indy to trade up and nab Harrison. Linebacker Zaire Franklin went complete fanboy on his podcast, saying the team should trade everything not “nailed down” to move up and get this stud receiver. I can’t say I blame him after watching the highlights.

Whether Harrison goes in the top five or slides a bit, one thing is clear: He could be an instant gamebreaker at the next level. So why not have him become Indy’s next generational receiver, just like his old man did back in the day?

Take A Look At These Other 2 NFL Special Articles

Yes, yes, YES! I know the Chicago Bears are more than set on making a move for USC generational talent QB Caleb Williams with the first overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. I’m not here to sell anybody on the idea of the Bears trading away that pick.

I dabbled in psychedelics back in the day, but I’m not on a perennial high that makes me come up with genuinely outlandish draft ideas.

But how about the Bears, led by GM Ryan Poles, strike up a deal so good and worth buying into that they can trade their second first-round pick in the draft – the No. 9 overall spot – to a team within the top five?

Yes, Arizona, it’s you I’m talking to, allowing Chicago to take Harrison to pair with Williams.

Just picture it: The best generational talent at quarterback playing alongside the best generational talent at receiver. How does that not spell future NFL betting odds favoritism all over?

For being so bad at receiving this past season, finishing last in the league with only 3,421 yards, the Bears already have a solid group of receivers, with D.J. Moore, Keenan Allen, Equanimeous St. Brown and tight ends Cole Kmet and Gerald Everett.

However, adding Harrison to the mix would make their receiving corps even better and give Williams a better chance of succeeding.

Harrison is an incredibly talented player, and with how this season went for Chicago, it is the perfect opportunity for the Ohio State product to become the team’s second pick in the 2024 draft by moving up and going all out for him.

At the end of the day, two things are more than certain here. Harrison would definitely be a good fit for the Bears. He’s a Heisman Trophy finalist who can catch anything thrown his way.

Two, these are the Bears we’re talking about. They have enough draft capital, experience trading up for premier draft picks, cap space, and whatever else anybody may need to make this deal happen.
