2024 NFL Draft: Bo Nix discusses potentially going in the first round, which QB he compares himself to in NFL

The 2024 NFL Draft is now less than a week away, and opening night could make draft history. Sportsbooks are anticipating 21-22 offensive players to be selected in the first round, which would break the record of 19, and we also could see the first defensive player come off the board historically late. Additionally, we could see a record matched if six quarterbacks hear their names called on Thursday night. One of those quarterbacks who is seemingly on the line of being a first-round pick is Oregon’s Bo Nix.
After three seasons at Auburn, Nix took his talents to Oregon in 2022 — where his production absolutely exploded. He threw for 3,593 yards, 29 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2022, then upped the ante in 2023 with 4,508 passing yards, a whopping 45 touchdowns and just three interceptions. Nix also set the FBS record for single-season completion percentage (77.4%), while the Ducks went 11-1 and earned a Pac-12 Championship berth.
His two years in Eugene were historic, as Nix became one of just four quarterbacks since 2000 to record 8,000 passing yards, 70 passing touchdowns and 20 rushing touchdowns in a two-season span, joining probable No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams, Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson.
Nix leaves the college ranks having recorded the second-most total yards in FBS history (16,965), and the most starts in FBS history (61). He’s accurate, he’s athletic and he’s ready for the next step, which is the NFL Draft.
This week, Nix spoke with CBS Sports about the upcoming draft and himself as a prospect in a new Q&A.
