The 2024 NFL Draft is not until Apr. 25, but the Arizona Cardinals have the No. 4 pick and could select a potential star.

The chances of that happening are speculative, but a highly-touted wide receiver can be yet another option that Cardinals general manager Monti Ossenfort and the front office consider once the draft arrives.

Ohio State WR Marvin Harrison Jr. has officially declared for the NFL Draft via social media to clear any rumors of him staying in college for another year.

In a message to the Buckeyes’ team, fans and his support system, he thanked everybody for helping him get to a point where he can say that he is ready to go to the next level, calling it a “dream come true.”

Harrison Jr. is regarded by many NFL insiders and experts as a consensus top-five pick in the draft, and could even be as high as the first overall.

In three years at Ohio State, Harrison Jr. had the sixth most receptions with 155 and receiving yards (2,613) in the school’s history. He also collected 31 touchdown catches, the third highest total of any Buckeye ever.

With this prestigious resume, he also won the Biletnikoff Award and the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year award, was named an All-American twice and a Heisman Trophy finalist.

The Chicago Bears have the first selection in the draft and could very well pick Harrison Jr. if they believe Justin Fields is still their quarterback of the future or not.

With the Washington Commanders and New England Patriots, there are multiple directions they can go towards with who they choose since star college quarterbacks Drake Maye (UNC) and Caleb Williams (USC) will be readily available in the top-three.

As for Arizona, it all depends on if Kyler Murray will, without a doubt, remain the quarterback come next season.

Will they keep Murray and go with someone else in a different position or not?

The Cardinals will have tough decisions to make sooner rather than later.
