Which Team Will Take Bo Nix in the 2024 NFL Draft?

With Super Bowl LVIII officially over and out, the football community will now focus on the 2024 NFL Draft.

As with most seasons, there are several teams in need of a new quarterback for the approaching year. That should translate well for the upcoming draft class as there are many signal-callers with high-potential.

Of that crop, Bo Nix -- formerly of the Oregon Ducks -- has both the size and skills to thrive on Sundays. Over his most recent campaign, Nix guided the Fighting Ducks to 44.2 points per game behind a sizzling completion clip of 77.4%.

On FanDuel Sportsbook, you can find odds to draft Bo Nix via their 2024 NFL Draft odds. With April's event in Detroit just over two months away, let's dive into the numbers and see which teams are mostly likely to take Nix.

Also, you can take a look at Jim Sannes' breakdown of this draft's QB class in addition to early analysis of the first round of the draft.

Denver Broncos (+300)

Currently holding the No. 12 overall pick in the upcoming draft, the Denver Broncos have the shortest odds to draft Bo Nix.

Denver will be in its second season under head coach Sean Payton. Notably, Payton was verbally non-committal to Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, who is slated to be owed $39 million next season if on the active roster. Barring a trade up from Denver, signal-callers Caleb Williams and Jayden Daniels will likely be long gone by the time Broncos Country is on the clock, which could make Nix a natural fit in the Mile High.

Day 1 of the draft (April 25th) in Motor City is fast approaching, so you can assume Denver is doing their due diligence on Nix (among others). Of course, Payton is a former quarterback himself, and that could lead to a harmonious on-field relationship with Nix. Keep in mind: the Oregon alum has five years of college experience under his belt, as Nix previously spent significant time with the Auburn Tigers, as well.

The Broncos proved in the latter half of 2023 that they are a team to be respected. From Week 7 through Week 14, Denver posted six total victories. In totality, the Broncos could be a favorable spot for a young quarterback like Nix.

Las Vegas Raiders (+550)

As the other AFC West franchise with no definitive answer at signal-caller right now, the Las Vegas Raiders are once again looking to turn over a new leaf. With Josh McDaniels giving way to current Vegas head coach Antonio Pierce, the highly paid Jimmy Garoppolo will likely be released.

It is not a hot take to claim that quarterback Aidan O'Connell is far from established, so Raider Nation would do well to address the game's most important position when April's draft rolls around.

Following a recent fake-out by Kliff Kingsbury, Luke Getsy was hired as the offensive coordinator in Sin City. Coming over from the Chicago Bears, perhaps Getsy lobbies the Raiders to strike a deal for Justin Fields, or maybe they go a new direction altogether via the draft.

In 2023, Nix dazzled with his arm, yielding the second-best QBR (91.0) in all of FBS. At this point, Vegas could certainly benefit from efficient play such as that; the Raiders were seventh-worst in terms of yards per pass attempt (6.6) last year.

Unless there are some pre-draft dealings, Las Vegas will pick 13th overall in Detroit. Similarly to Denver, that spot is a little too low to be in the running for the Heisman Trophy winners from 2022 (Williams) and 2023 (Daniels). If the Raiders stand pat and the Broncos pass on Nix, perhaps the former Duck winds up playing home games at Allegiant Stadium -- a venue where he has unfinished business.

Minnesota Vikings (+550)

Currently, the Raiders and Minnesota Vikings both show the second-shortest odds to draft Bo Nix. Between Vegas and Minnesota, the Vikings are in the driver's seat, as they are left with the 11th pick on April 25th, which is higher than Denver or Vegas.

Unless the New England Patriots take Nix with the third overall selection (which is distantly plausible at +650 odds), Minnesota seems like a likely candidate to roll the dice on Nix. Still, the Vikes have not made a definitive move on last year's quarterback Kirk Cousins. Prior to an Achilles injury in Week 8, Cousins -- who is now a free agent -- was playing good ball for the Twin Cities.

With uncertainty around "Captain Kirk," the Vikings could be incentivized to find a new signal-caller via the draft; 2024 obviously has its share of options. Once you throw Drake Maye into the mix, Nix is arguably the fourth-best player at his position for this draft class.

As a bit of a back-door cover in this market, NFL.com draft analyst Chad Reuter has Nix being selected by Minnesota with the first pick of the second round (33rd overall). Hey, these odds at FanDuel Sportsbook are built around which team will draft Nix -- they are not at all dependent on what spot in the draft that might occur.
