2024 NFL Draft Big Board - Hayden Winks' Top 100

Apr 21st 2024

Hayden Winks

This is a very fun year to cover the NFL Draft. There should be four QBs in the top-10 with Bo Nix and Michael Penix on the Round 1 fringe. There are four WRs in my top-15 with Brock Bowers also checking in. There's plenty of depth at WR on Day 2 after a potential record-setting amount of offensive linemen go in Round 1. If your team needs offense, you're in good shape here. Defense? Well, who cares???

More importantly than having fun is competing. This is why I'm dusting off the ol' Top 100 Big Board this year. I recently learned that my lone Top 100 Big Board ever was the very best big board on the internet back in 2020. It actually was more predictive than draft capital itself, which is something I'm incredibly proud of if I'm being honest. Back then, I didn't have access to endless all 22 tape like I do now, nor did I have any contacts with NFL scouts or decision makers. Instead I used the following principles to construct my draft board:

  • Use wisdom of the crowds. 100 opinions are going to beat one opinion most of the time, so the foundation will always be to look at consensus rankings first. From there, I love to compare some expert opinions from analysts I trust to actually do their homework. In no particular order, I'll take an average from Daniel Jeremiah, Field Yates, Dane Brugler, Danny Kelly, Nate Tice, Grinding The Mocks, and some new analysts that ranked really well in Arif Hasan's research of big boards. I find it interesting when these group of experts differ from consensus, so I'll investigate those prospects even further.

  • Adjust for positional value. The NFL literally tells us how much they value each position every single year in free agency. QBs obviously do more than a TE, so I'm going to push QBs way up my rankings. On average, it's smart because when the QB hits, he'll really hit. When the TE hits, he only kinda matters. Back in 2020 when I won the competition, I had Justin Herbert and Jalen Hurts way above consensus. Those were the two best picks in the entire draft in terms of value added, even though they had warts on tape. Every QB does.

  • Value people with skin in the game. If there's credible news that a prospect is going higher or lower based on NFL feedback, I value that opinion. There is a lot more to lose for NFL teams than there is for us on the outside. They also have access to valuable information (like medicals and character) that sometimes doesn't get fully leaked. Late in the process, information can leak and some analysts are too stubborn to adjust. ... The other way this "skin in the game" applies is by aggressively ranking early declares. The NFL told these prospects to come out early because they value them, even if they aren't complete players yet. There's no reason for the NFL to lie to these prospects, so I take declaration status very seriously. Ditto for prospects coming from the elite universities, as they also had the most to lose when signing these recruits out of high school.

  • Use analytics (sometimes). Not everything is about numbers, but there are predictive trends that many don't pay enough attention to. For example, age is key, though it varies by position. Production and athleticism are also weighted differently based on the position. I use the last two decades of drafts to dictate what those weights are, then plug the upcoming draft class in to spit out a historical percentile. Over time, it'll show some prospects who are over or under valued by consensus rankings. I'll spend extra time on those prospects during my research time.

  • Watch the damn games. Figuring out what each prospect's strengths and weaknesses are is valuable because each trait is valued differently and each weakness has different odds of being fixed. There's a lot of context missed by models simply based on the type of scheme or level of competition faced, so getting eyeballs on each prospect is worth my time. I want to have some hubris in my opinions, but I sometimes get the sense many consensus opinions are built on narrative, rather than what's happened on the field... At the very least, it's a fun process for me and makes for fun discussion on our YouTube channel:

Here are the prospects I'm higher on: Wake Forest S Malik Mustapha (+62 spots), Kentucky CB Andru Phillips (+48), Florida State WR Johnny Wilson (+39), LSU DT Mekhi Wingo (+38), Kentucky LB Trevin Wallace (+30), Ohio State DT Michael Hall Jr. (+29), Houston LT Patrick Paul (+30), Kansas EDGE Austin Booker (+26), LSU DT Maason Smith (+26), Colorado State EDGE Mohamed Kamara (+24), Western Kentucky EDGE Marshawn Kneeland (+23), Kansas G Dominick Puni (+23), Alabama WR Jermaine Burton (+23), Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy (+19), Oregon QB Bo Nix (+18), Rutgers CB Max Melton (+18), and Notre Dame RB Audric Estime (+18).... For those counting at home, 8 of the 9 prospects I'm highest on are early declares from Power 5 schools.

... And lower on: Texas DT T'Vondre Sweat (unranked), Minnesota S Tyler Nubin (-31), North Carolina WR Devontez Walker (-29), Florida State DT Braden Fiske (-28), NC State LB Payton Wilson (-25), Western Kentucky WR Malachi Corley (-23), and Clemson LB Jeremiah Trotter Jr. (unranked).... 5 of these 7 were not early declares.

1. QB1 Caleb Williams - USC

2. QB2 Drake Maye - North Carolina

3. QB3 J.J. McCarthy - Michigan

I'm far higher on McCarthy than almost everyone. He's 21st in consensus rankings, largely because many still don't adjust for positional value enough. Watch the video to see why I like McCarthy's long-term potential so much.

4. QB4 Jayden Daniels - LSU

5. OT1 Joe Alt - Notre Dame

Alt is one of the tallest linemen of the 2000s (6'8"/321) and is still young enough (21 years old) to completely fill out after playing tight end in high school. He lit up the NFL Combine with 83rd percentile speed and 95th percentile agility, in addition to posting 27 bench press reps with 34.25-inch arms. Alt's pass protection reps often look completely effortless. He's too big to work the outside lane and has the feet to prevent inside moves. Despite being tall, Alt can anchor against bull rushes. He has Hall of Fame traits.

6. WR1 Marvin Harrison - Ohio State

7. WR2 Malik Nabers - LSU

8. WR3 Rome Odunze - Washington

9. OT2 JC Latham - Alabama

Latham is a giant (6'5"/342) with a mean streak in both phases. He led the draft class in "average length of engagement" in both run and pass blocking sets, meaning once Latham had his hands on a defender it was Joever. He's extremely strong and dense with an All Pro potential at guard in the circumstance he needs to kick inside. At Alabama, Latham gave up just 3 QB hits in two years at right tackle, all on inside moves. While not as fleet of foot as other top-10 tackles, he's certainly quick enough to work counter moves off the edge, is used to playing with QBs who want to scramble around the pocket, and was put on an island on most passing reps. Those 35.2-inch arms (97th percentile) are fully maximized. The 21-year-old has elite potential with just a little more development. I'm not concerned that he didn't test. The tape was that good.

10. OT3 Olu Fashanu - Penn State

Caleb Williams' left tackle in high school, Fashanu somehow was just a 3-star recruit but now has 5-star traits. He finished 9th and 4th in PFF's pass blocking grades in his two years as the Nittany Lions' left tackle because he has nice body control and a big lower half. Fashanu has 34-inch arms and stands at 6-foot-6, so he's hard to work around from the outside. He holds his own against bull rushes, as long as he uses his hands properly which is a work in progress. In the ground game, Fashanu had the best blown block rate among the left tackles (0.6%) per SIS, had the best success rate per Sumer Sports, and the 2nd best average length of engagement per StatsBomb. He had 71st percentile speed but opted out of the agilities at the NFL Combine.

11. EDGE1 Laiatu Latu - UCLA

Because of a neck surgery that led to a temporary medical retirement in 2021, Latu is one of the most boom-bust prospects of the draft. He was cleared to play at UCLA, and man was he productive for his final two seasons. Latu had a 23% pressure rate per to PFF (the best in college football), leading to 13.0 sacks and 96th percentile tackles for loss per game. There is a method to his pass rush plan, and it comes with a motor. He single-handedly ruined one of my Saturdays after what he did to my Trojans. Latu tested like a 72nd percentile athlete with average size (6'4"/249) and a 73rd percentile three cone. He doesn't have the elite traits of the top-10 pass rusher, but the production speaks for itself.

12. EDGE2 Dallas Turner - Alabama

Turner is a 5-star recruit through and through. He has incredible length for his size (6'2"/246) to keep tackles off his chest, but more importantly has 98th percentile speed (4.46 forty) and burst (96th percentile vert) to win on the perimeter. There's room for a little more weight on his frame and his age (21 years old) suggests a sky-high ceiling with more development. The Crimson Tide team captain posted a high-end 20% pressure rate, leading to 10.0 sacks. His tackles for loss numbers only check in at the 48th percentile, but those stuffs are harder to come by next to other studs.

13. WR4 Brian Thomas - LSU

My video is here. In summary, there aren't many 6'3"/209 X receivers who have 4.3s speed. When they also scored 17 TDs against SEC competition, then it's time to go all in. I'm bullish on his athletic traits translating into more breaking routes with some development. He just moved too well in his yards after the catch opportunities to think he's just a go ball and hitch receiver.

14. QB5 Bo Nix - Oregon

I wrote about Nix's profile here, but in summary, he's not the same player he was at Auburn. He's far more mature, yet still showcases some athleticism whenever asked to make a play. A Power 5 QB with a 97th percentile EPA per play is always going to peak my interest. Most can't comprehend how important a QB is to a team and how much risk teams should have in drafting them. He's only 38th overall in consensus rankings.

15. OT4 Amarius Mims - Georgia

Take a good, long look at the picture below and guess how much this man weighs...

While tall (6'7"), it's hard to believe this dude carries 340 pounds. It appears to be almost all muscle and arms, which are in the 98th percentile in terms of length. He floated at the NFL Combine, too, posting 86th percentile speed and 87th percentile in the broad jump. In terms of raw physical tools, Mims is as good as it gets. The issue is he was a backup as a freshman and sophomore, then only started 6 games before an ankle sprain ended his breakout season. Despite the inexperience, Mims' 0.7% blown block rate was the best among all tackles. A prospect of his pedigree can only be so "raw", even with just 401 career run blocks and 402 career pass blocks under his belt.

16. TE1 Brock Bowers - Georgia

Bowers is very good. In fact, he'll most likely be a borderline top-5 NFL TE very early in his career. That position is just paid like a RB, so the relative value isn't there. I just can't draft a TE that doesn't have elite size where consensus rankings have him (7th overall).

17. DT1 Byron Murphy - Texas

There are some limitations to his game based on his frame (6'0" with 26th percentile weight), but Murphy can shoot gaps with his athleticism, particularly as a pass rusher. He had an elite 12.5% career pressure rate and faced double teams often because he almost exclusively played in the a gap (36% snaps) and b gap (62%). The undersized three-tech is strong enough to fight as a run defender and navigate through double teams, but his ceiling will be determined by finishing off pass rushes. The pressures were fantastic. It just would've been nicer to walk away with more than 9 QB hits, 5 sacks, and 8.5 tackles for loss (38th percentile). He'll be 21 years old as a rookie, so we can project development.

18. CB1 Quinyon Mitchell - Toledo

It's almost impossible to be a six-year player from a Group of 5 school, yet have top-20 consensus grades. Mitchell pulled it off by parlaying elite ball production as a junior and senior (18+ passes deflected each year), with being the best player at the Senior Bowl, and with 98th percentile athleticism at the NFL Combine. He ran the forty in 4.33 seconds, had a 38-inch vertical, and bench pressed 20 times at 6'0"/195. Special. Mitchell only played man coverage on 30% of his snaps, saw 9 press man targets in his last two seasons, and basically avoided top-100 WRs throughout his collegiate career, so there's some uncertainty here. He can close in a hurry while on off coverage and plays the ball very well at the catch point. There's a calmness to his game despite being really quick. That's a good sign.

19. CB2 Terrion Arnold - Alabama

This is not the typical profile of a Round 1 Bama corner. Arnold only played man coverage on 26% of his snaps and has 34th percentile speed at 189 pounds. Where he wins is with his quiet feet, above-average length, and ability to play the ball on time (17 pass deflections). There are many reps of him quickly changing direction (91st percentile three cone) and bursting to close gaps. Alabama put him in the slot on 24% of his snaps partially because he's a willing tackler, so there's a versatility to his game beyond playing in both man and zone throughout his career. The 21-year-old early declare is ready to go from Day 1, even if he's not the special athlete of the typical top-10 pick.

20. CB3 Nate Wiggins - Clemson

After two years of starting at outside corner, Wiggins declared early and won't turn 21 years old until training camp. He's remarkably thin but at least went from 173 to 182 pounds during his Pro Day. Wiggins' 4.28 forty at the NFL Combine is the headliner for his prospect profile, and he can close ground and prevent himself from getting stacked on tape because he's so fast. For someone as skinny as he is, Wiggins does have some dawg in him at the catch point. He had 11 pass deflections in 10 games last year, while playing man coverage on a very high 59% of his snaps. He'll have to be used wisely in the NFL or else he'll be hunted as a tackler. Wiggins exclusively played on the outside.

21. G1 Taliese Fuaga - Oregon State

Only a 3-star prospect, Fuaga waited until his redshirt sophomore season to start for the Beavers. He's started 25 games, all at right tackle, but he has the frame (6'5"/324) of a typical guard. If he stays at tackle, then Fuaga would have bottom 15th percentile length, and he likely doesn't have the rare side-to-side movement ability to survive out there long term. Evidence of that would be his below-average length of engagement (see 9th overall JC Latham chart). That said, Fuaga is a total menace with elite density and drive, giving him a Pro Bowl ceiling on the interior if things click. Oregon State was very outside zone heavy.

22. G2 Troy Fautanu - Washington

His tape is chaos. Fautanu has some of the most unorthodox approaches to difficult situations, yet has the length (34.5-inch arms) and feet to bail him out. He's vicious in the ground game because it's hard to get to his chest, and his 90th percentile speed shows up whenever he's asked to be on the move. The 23.5-year-old has 29 starts at left tackle and the length to stay there if needed, but his inconsistent technique out on an island makes him a candidate to play inside where he has more help around him. Sports Info Solutions credited him with a 3.1% blow block rate on his pass snaps, the worst of the consensus first round prospects. It's fair to say he has pros and cons, but his probable versatility will be helpful early on. Some even think he can play center.

23. EDGE3 Jared Verse - Florida State

Originally a tight end, Verse took three years of development at Albany before transferring to be a Seminole. Those transition years make him a total outlier and 23.6-year-old prospect, but Verse has NFL size (6'4/254) and 86th percentile athleticism. He typically wins with speed-to-power, thanks to an 80th percentile 10-yard split. He's just not as bendy as the elite pass rushers. A 16% pressure rate is strong, yet a tier below Turner and Latu. He cleaned up 9.0 sacks with 40th percentile tackles for loss per game during his redshirt senior season. Verse's physicality will be appreciated by certain teams.

24. CB4 Kool-Aid McKinstry - Alabama

The former 5-star recruit started all three seasons for Nick Saban, exclusively playing on the perimeter. McKinstry has long arms and 75th-percentile weight (199 pounds), and he uses it on tape. Alabama didn't play as much many coverage in 2023 (27%) as they usually do, but McKinstry was put on islands against SEC talent. Dane Brugler noted Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas Jr. called Kool-Aid the toughest corner they've faced. The 21-year-old completed his pro day testing on a broken foot, yet still posted a 4.47 forty with a 99th percentile 10-yard split (1.44 seconds). That closing speed gives him CB1 upside as long as his foot cooperates. The difference between Arnold and McKinstry is the smoothness when changing speeds.

25. CB5 Cooper DeJean - Iowa

Some view him as a safety, but DeJean played outside corner on 89% of his junior snaps before declaring early as a 21-year-old. The Hawkeyes only played man coverage 17% of their snaps, however, so DeJean was often put in situations where he'd read the field. That's where he's at his best because he has instincts, toughness, and closing speed. He posted a 4.44 forty and 38.5-inch vert after recovering from a broken ankle. DeJean was late to get his hands on receivers in press man coverage, allowing more separation than expected given his athleticism. He needs more reps (two years of starts) to get more comfortable being on an island. DeJean would be a classically-build nickel with the size (6'0"/203) to occasionally match with tight ends and the speed to chase backs to the sideline. That could be selling him short, however. He held his own as an outside corner and deserves a shot out wide.

26. DT2 Jer'Zhan Newton - Illinois

A foot injury prevented Jer'Zhan from athletic testing, but it's obvious that he has freaky movements on tape. He plays with violence despite being only 6'1" and 305 pounds (45th percentile), and Newton has the juice to rush the quarterback. He had 7.5 sacks on an 11% pressure rate as a senior, while primarily lining up on the b gap (45%) and over a tackle (54%). He'll close in a hurry when his pass rush move works, but Newton also contributed 2.2 solo tackles per game, putting him in the 70th percentile among draft defensive tackles. That production is partially because he's a snap eater. There are times were he can get lost in the shuffle against the run, so Newton likely can't kick all the way inside and will be best paired with a physical nose tackle.

27. C1 Jackson Powers-Johnson - Oregon

Initially a guard for the Ducks, JPJ broke out as a center in 2023 when he won the Remington Award. He has a fiesty play style in the ground game at 328 pounds but can move out in space. He'll work to the second level as a run blocker after aggressively chipping defensive tackles on duo runs. He can also move in zone. Powers-Johnson can get a bit too tall at times, but he has impressive strength when in a powerful stance. There's room for technique improvement because he is so inexperienced, and his starting point is already really high (see chart below). The Ducks threw a lot of screens where he made multiple highlight blocks, but more importantly, Bo Nix finished with a 99th percentile sack rate while JPJ led all centers in PFF pass blocking grade with 0 QB hits allowed.

28. G3 Graham Barton - Duke

His versatility is a plus, but more importantly, Barton is a total freak athlete. His forty and three cone are both in the 96th percentile among drafted interior linemen, and he has average weight there (6'5"/313). Barton's 33-inch arms aren't ideal for left tackle, so he's likely to play somewhere inside for a team that's ready to use his movement skills in the ground game. He doesn't have experience at guard and his 5 starts at center were back in 2020 (and they generally weren't good snaps), so this would generally be an unprecedented move to directly pivot to center. You can read about that here. That said, Barton was an ass kicker at left tackle, particularly as a run blocker where his tenacity shines more.

29. G4 Jordan Morgan - Arizona

Morgan has made 37 starts at left tackle, but 32.8-inch arms are below some team's thresholds, so a kick inside is likely. He has all of the tools to make a seamless transition. Morgan is very athletic (87th percentile forty, 99th percentile 10-yard split, and 90th percentile broad jump) and already has a lot of zone experience. He has the feet to pull in the run game and to pick up stunts in the pass game. Morgan has allowed just 4 QB hits in his last 22 starts per PFF, despite coming back from a torn ACL. The uncertainty here is if he has enough power to be a road grader in some downhill rushing schemes. Having humungous 10.8-inch hands helps.

30. EDGE4 Chop Robinson - Penn State

A 21-year-old early declare, Robinson is in project mode as a pass rusher but comes with 97th percentile athleticism. His 1.53 10-yard split is ridiculous, and his 83rd percentile three cone time is proof that he can turn the corner, too. If he reaches his potential, Robinson can be a double-digit sack artist. That just wasn't the case in college. He managed just 4.0 sacks, 15 tackles, and 19th percentile tackles for loss per game. Even his pressure rate sat at a mediocre 13% despite playing in a rotation. Robinson can't be trusted in rushing situations and will need to translate his traits into production before becoming an ace. It's possible that his 20th percentile height (6'2") and 30th percentile weight (254 lbs) keep him in a limited role.

31. WR5 Ladd McConkey - Georgia

32. WR6 Adonai Mitchell - Texas

33. WR7 Xavier Worthy - Texas

34. OT5 Patrick Paul - Houston

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#60).

Paul is highly experienced (44 starts at left tackle) for a 22.4-year-old, and he has ideal body size (6'7"/331 and 36.25-inch arms) to stay there. His athletic traits are also above average. His forty is in the 69th percentile. His three cone, 67th. And 30 bench press reps with those arms is arguably more impressive. Paul was the top tackle in PFF's pass blocking grade last year and has only allowed 4 QB hits in the last two years. His feet are so light in pass protection and he's hard to beat around the outside with his length. If he can improve his timing, hand placement, and drive as a run-blocker, then Paul has quality left tackle upside, which is obviously hard to find. His ability to get off the line quickly stood out as a run blocker, even if he can get a little too tall in his stance and flare his arms out a bit too much.

35. OT6 Tyler Guyton - Oklahoma

Guyton didn't start playing football until his senior year in high school, then played tight end at TCU before finally starting 14 games at right tackle for the Sooners. He's probably the rawest player inside the top-50, so much so that he easily could not start as a rookie. Guyton has the ideal frame that's worth developing. He's nearly 6'8" with over 34-inch arms, over 10-inch hands, and weighs 322 pounds. At the NFL Combine, Guyton showcased 65th percentile speed and an 80th percentile three cone. When his technique is good, he's tough to get around and he's strong enough to anchor against bull rushes. His timing in every way is a tick off and will need to be groomed by a good offensive line coach. Guyton's ideal fit would be as ex-Sooner Lane Johnson's long-term replacement with the Eagles, who have the best OL coach in the game.

36. QB6 Michael Penix - Washington

37. C2 Zach Frazier - West Virginia

Compared to the other top center prospects, Frazier's 47 starts stand out. 8 of them were at left guard, too, so there's some positional versatility across the interior. He suffered a broken leg at the end of his senior season, forcing him to rush his testing at the Mountaineers' Pro Day. Frazer has mere average athleticism out in space, but he makes up for it with strength (30 bench reps), experience, and just ball playing. Dane Brugler noted he had a 4.5 GPA in high school and was 159-2 as a wrestler. Dawg.

38. DT3 Michael Hall - Ohio State

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#68).

Hall is a high-upside three tech, a position that's getting paid more than ever right now. A career 13% pressure rate puts him elite company, and he managed to pull it off as a 20-year-old redshirt sophomore. Hall's 99th percentile forty and 84th percentile vertical jump at the NFL Combine are further signs that his non-existent box score production will turn the corner in the pros, as long as he can play more than 34 snaps per game like he did in 2023. 84% of them came in the b gap.

39. EDGE5 Darius Robinson - Missouri

Robinson is caught between EDGE and DT, making his projection difficult. He played in the b gap as a three technique on 70% of his redshirt junior snaps before truly breaking out as a edge rusher (97% snaps) last year. Robinson set career highs in sacks (8.5) and tackles for loss (14.0), putting him in the 60th percentile in production. Compared to edge rushers, his 13% pressure rate is solid yet unspectacular. His 9% pressure rate as a defensive tackle falls into the same category, solid yet unspectacular. If he stays at edge rusher, Robinson will have 92nd percentile weight, 9th percentile speed, and 1st percentile agility. Those are 5th percentile, 78th percentile, and 26th percentile scores at defensive tackle. In an ideal situation, Robinson would hold up as at edge in rushing situations and would kick inside in obvious passing situations. Either way, his drafted team needs a strict plan.

40. EDGE6 Marshawn Kneeland - Western Michigan

5th-year seniors from non-Power 5 schools aren't my cup of tea, but Kneeland checks almost all other boxes. He is thickly built (6'3"/267) with 54th percentile weight-adjusted speed (4.67 forty) and a 82nd percentile three cone. That's serious bend for a physical edge rusher. His 15% pressure rate is above average, and his 5.7 tackles per game is by far the most among the top-100 edge rushing prospects. Kneeland can hold his own on the edge against the run and be a full-time player, even if there's nothing about his profile that screams upside.

41. LB1 Junior Colson - Michigan

After leading an elite Wolverines defense to an undefeated National Championship, Colson declared as a 21-year-old. He played with two clubbed hands while battling through injuries, but he remained a sure tackler in the open field. The middle linebacker didn't get to chase the quarterback often and only had 2 tackles for loss, so his production profile is just average. Instead, Colson can fall back on his leadership, awareness, and coverage skills. Though a hamstring injury prevented him from athletic testing, Colson has the skills to cover receivers and backs. In the era of tiny linebackers, Colson at least weighs 238 pounds.

42. WR8 Ricky Pearsall - Florida

43. EDGE7 Chris Braswell - Alabama

The 5-star recruit waited patiently to be a Crimson Tide starter, but Braswell immediately provided results as a redshirt junior. He had a strong 19% pressure rate and 8.0 sacks, primarily because of his explosiveness. His 10-yard split and 40 time were both in the 83rd percentile, but he declined the agility drills at the NFL Combine. Braswell wasn't a force against the run (19th percentile tackles for loss per game) and likely won't be because of his 21st percentile size (6'3"/251). Expect him to stick outside the tackle like he did on 91% of his Bama snaps. His calling card will be rotational pass rusher, even if he doesn't have a single elite trait to latch onto. That pressure rate does suggest there's a starting level player here.

44. DT4 Kris Jenkins - Michigan

After winning the National Championship, Jenkins declared early. He has a versatile background with NFL size (6'3"/299) and athleticism (81st percentile forty). He played in the b gap on 52% of his snaps as a classic three tech, then rotated towards the edge on 45% of his redshirt junior snaps. Jenkins only had 2.5 sacks and 7th percentile tackles for loss per game, however. He's more of a gap eater right now than a high-end penetrator, but his experience in DC Jesse Minter's scheme will be valued as the NFL adapts to that system. It wouldn't be a surprise if he needed another year of grooming his pass rush moves before his athletic flashes turn into real production.

45. G5 Cooper Beebe - Kansas State

With 48 starts under his belt, Beebe is Day 1 ready. He started as a left tackle before settling in as a left guard, which matches his body way better (6'3"/322 and 31.5-inch arms). He's a total meatball. He led all Power 5 left guards in PFF pass blocking grade and was 3rd in run blocking. He can hold up in one-on-one situations with physical defensive tackles and is a very functional athlete as a puller. His 5.03 forty (88th percentile) and 7.44 three cone (85th percentile) at the NFL Combine suggest there is some upside here. On tape, Beebe lunged too often out in space but otherwise played under control. His downside risk comes with his short arms and oddly low 20 bench press reps, potentially leading him to center long term. Beebe was a 2-time team captain and 4-time academic first teamer.

46. G6 Christian Haynes - UConn

Already 24 years old because of a redshirt and wasted COVID season, Haynes needed a big day at the NFL Combine to solidify his Day 2 status. He finished with 88th percentile speed and 95th percentile vert, which can be seen in his movement skills in the Huskies' zone rushing scheme. Haynes flies out of his stance immediately and can beat defensive tackles to the spot, before locking them down with his 33.5-inch arms. All of his collegiate snaps came at right tackle. He's allowed just 3 QB hits in his last two seasons. Off the field, Haynes has already completed his masters.

47. WR9 Keon Coleman - Florida State

48. WR10 Troy Franklin - Oregon

49. OT7 Kingsley Suamataia - BYU

Suamataia's immediate and extended family has had "double digit" college and pro football players, including the Penei Sewell, per Dane Brugler. It's not an exaggeration to say Suamatia was destined for NFL stardom. He was a 260 pounds in 8th grade, immediately earning scholarships from everywhere. The 5-star recruit spent his first year at Oregon before returning home to BYU where this generational family lives. Suamatia has equal starts at left and right tackle but is generally raw. Of the top tackle prospects, his 2.8% blown block rate was the worst and he faced the easiest competition. His feet are light, just out of position. His hands can be violent, just late to the punch. Suamataia, only 21.2 years old, deserves patience because the traits are so hard to find. He is 6'5"/326 with 34.25-inch arms and 84th percentile speed.

50. CB6 Mike Sainristil - Michigan

His college career was chaotic, which makes him a 23.6-year-old rookie. Sainristil tried playing receiver for his first three years before becoming the slot corner (72% snaps) and a team captain during the Wolverines' title run. He's limited by his size (5'9"/182) and average athleticism, but Sainristil just finds a way to make it work. He plays fast, makes good decisions, is a fighter through traffic, and can hit. Michigan put him in man coverage on just 22% of his snaps, but they run a lot of coverages and require a versatile skillset to run their unit. He wound up with 6 interceptions.

51. CB7 Max Melton - Rutgers

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#70).

He just turned 22 years old and already has 40 starts under his belt, largely playing on the outside while rotating into the slot on 20% of snaps. Melton was used in man coverage 44% of the time where his impressive athleticism shows out. He ran the forty 4.39 seconds, hit 40.5 inches on the vert, and ended the day with a 99th percentile broad jump. Melton's explosiveness is his strength, and it helped him deflect 9 passes. His length helps him there, too. Melton can play out of control and can get caught overcommitting, so he needs all of those athletic traits to make up for his inconsistent technique. If he can play less chaotic, Melton has a high ceiling. We'll see if his size (5'11"/187) makes him a nickel corner. I wouldn't hate him chasing slot defenders in man coverage.

52. CB8 Kamari Lassiter - Georgia

He literally is a Dawg, but Lassiter likely can't survive outside at 187 pounds with a 4.64 forty (3rd percentile). He'll have to transition into the slot more and likely will be viewed more favorably by zone teams. Lassiter did have a 96th percentile three cone time, so there are some positives on his athletic profile. On tape, he doesn't get beat deep because he can throw receivers off their routes with a physical style that's paired with a great knowledge of scheme.

53. CB9 Ennis Rakestraw - Missouri

This is a prospect I'm way lower on than consensus (#40).

Rakestraw started as a freshman but has dealt with a torn ACL and nagging groin injury since then. He's a fireball, aggressive corner with experience all over the field. 20% of his snaps have been in the slot, and Missouri played man coverage on an even 40% snaps last year. PFF graded him as a star defender in zone coverage, which is where the NFL is trending. Rakestraw lacks size (5'11"/183 with 8.5-inch hands) and only has 4.51 speed (28th percentile), a combination that is probably best in zone defenses or in press man situations in tighter spaces. With more space to operate, Ricky Pearsall got the best of him repeatedly in man coverage. His 0.67 pass deflections per game are below average.

54. WR11 Ja'Lynn Polk - Washington

55. G7 Dominick Puni - Kansas

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#79).

After four seasons at Central Missouri, Puni finally transferred to Kansas where he played left guard in 2022 and left tackle in 2023. He is 6-foot-5 and 313 pounds with 33.4-inch arms, and he's allowed just 2 QB hits in the last two years despite switching positions, so he has real versatility in a pinch. Puni earned a Josh Norris' Short Shuttle Club membership at the NFL Combine, even though his forty time was just in the 35th percentile. He's fluid while working duo runs to the second level and has the strength to drive in one-on-one situations. He has long arms for a guard, but Puni needs to sink lower to more consistently win the leverage war. There's a chance he'll improve his technique with better coaching, and Lance Zierlein reports teams view Puni as a center.

56. RB1 Jonathon Brooks - Texas

57. DT5 Ruke Orhorhoro - Clemson

He didn't start playing football until his junior year in high school and still needs development time heading into the pros. Orhorhoro didn't fill the box score up (43rd percentile tackles for loss and 17th percentile solo tackles), but he has the athleticism and length (6'4"/294) to rush the passer. He posted 84th percentile athleticism at the NFL Combine with an 86th percentile forty, 76th percentile vert, and 85th percentile three cone. Those traits led to a solid 12% pressure rate as a redshirt senior despite playin in the b gap on 66% of his snaps.

58. DT6 Maason Smith - LSU

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#85).

It's historically profitable to draft redshirt sophomores out of the SEC. Smith is just that. He's wildly inexperienced because a torn ACL derailed his entire 2022 season, but Smith picked up 4.0 sacks as a true freshman. His 2.5 sacks and 16th percentile tackles for loss per game in his final season are underwhelming and prove the point that the former 5-star recruit is a work in progress. Standing at 6'5" and 306 pounds with remarkable 35-inch arms, Smith showcased 65th percentile weight-adjusted speed and a 57th percentile three cone at the NFL Combine. He'll rotate in at three tech (78% snaps in the b gap) early on, while trying to improve upon his solid 9% pressure rate.

59. EDGE8 Austin Booker - Kansas

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#86).

After doing nothing at Minnesota, Booker transferred to become a Jayhawk and immediately shined. The 21-year-old early declare posted a strong 18% pressure rate, leading to 8.0 sacks and a class-best 40 solo tackles. Booker's production when adjusted for age and team strength is in the 87th percentile. That's quite the accomplishment for his first and only collegiate season. Booker has 33rd percentile athleticism with 12th percentile weight-adjusted speed at only 240 pounds. There's physical development potential given his youth and inexperience (254 career pass rush snaps), but part of his success was winning in awkward ways with his unusual, wirey frame. He lined up outside the tackle on 94% of his snaps so his weight was less of an issue. Booker feels like a long-term lotto ticket.

60. S1 Calen Bullock - USC

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#74).

Drafting Bullock is a bet against ex-Trojans DC Alex Grinch, who never had a good grasp on utilizing unique players. Bullock is caught between corner and safety because played safety but has corner size (6'2"/188) and speed (4.48 forty). He's also turns 21 years old on draft night, so there is room for physical growth or a position change. He was a deep safety on 37% snaps, in the box on 32% snaps, and in the slot on 29% snaps. Bullock's tackling ability is so poor that he could be viewed as a strict outside corner. Ultimately, he has similar height/weight/speed as Daxton Hill, Jessie Bates, Jalen Mills, Jordan Poyer, and L'Jarius Sneed. That's a good group.

61. S2 Javon Bullard - Georgia

Only 198 pounds (17th percentile) with 30-inch arms, Bullard occupies the deep part of the field on most snaps (67%) and rarely flies down hill to defend the run. In fact, he had only 5 run stops per PFF, though Georgia's front seven doesn't allow many RBs to get to the safety. Bullard has the physicality and want to, however. His instincts are nice, he has 72nd percentile speed (4.47 forty), and he has elite change of direction. If Kirby Smart likes him, I like him.

62. CB10 Andru Phillips - Kentucky

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#111). It's the 2nd biggest difference.

He's only started 16 games, but Phillips has already shown some versatility. He played on the perimeter on 60% of his snaps, showing the ability to stay in the pocket of receivers moving downfield (see rep vs. Ricky Pearsall). Phillips doesn't have a standout trait. He is just always right on top of his receiver in his minimal man coverage reps (11% man). In zone, he can fly to the ball and make open field tackles, something he'll particularly have to do if he is a slot corner in the pros. His size (5'11/190 with 31.25 inch arms) did work against him at times outside, particularly on lofted passes where he loses the height battle, but a move to the slot would reduce that weakness quickly. His 42-inch vert at the NFL Combine stands out more than a 4.48 forty. There's a trust the (Senior Bowl) tape energy here.

63. CB11 T.J. Tampa - Iowa State

This is a prospect I'm lower on than consensus (#53).

The 22-year-old prospect played on the perimeter on 82% of his snaps during his senior season, but Tampa played man coverage just 22% of the time. He can clog some throwing windows in zone coverage and can work through receivers at the catch point because of his length. He had 9 pass deflections last year. His Pro Day numbers did him no favors, however. Tampa's 4.58 forty puts him in the bottom 8th percentile, his three cone was in the 39th percentile, and he opted out of the jumps.

64. OT8 Roger Rosengarten - Washington

This is a prospect I'm way higher on than consensus (#83).

The 4-star recruit practiced at left tackle before starting 28 games at right tackle during the Huskies' CFB playoff run. Rosengarten is only 308 pounds with 33.5-inch arms, so he won't be for everyone. He will be valued by pass-first teams and by teams who ask their linemen to pull and work to the second level because he's light on his toes (94th percentile forty and 78th percentile short shuttle). PFF hasn't credited him with a sack and with only 5 QB hits over the last two years despite having the most pass reps of any Power 5 OL over that span. His lack of power and anchor could become a bigger problem at the next level, but Rosengarten is sound enough to start as a rookie, especially in a more finesse offense.

65. WR12 Johnny Wilson - Florida State

66. WR13 Jermaine Burton - Alabama

To be clear, Burton is a top-8 WR and a top-40 overall prospect purely based on his tape. There are reports that he could fall for character issues that we likely aren't privy to from the outside. I took some of that into account here, but be prepared to get excited or completely rug pulled.

67. WR14 Xavier Legette - South Carolina

68. WR15 Roman Wilson - Michigan

69. RB2 Trey Benson - Florida State

70. LB2 Edgerrin Cooper - Texas A&M

The 22-year-old started two seasons, compiling 7.0 tackles per game (45th percentile). Because of his 4.51 speed (90th percentile), Cooper met ballcarriers in the backfield often. His 1.4 tackles for loss per game are firmly above average and point to the range he plays with. Cooper can be used as a blitzer (8.0 sacks), too. He won't be mistaken for a throwback middle linebacker at just 230 pounds, but this is the new NFL, which prioritizes covering ground in the pass game. Cooper seems like a rangy LB2 next to a veteran.

71. TE2 Ja'Tavion Sanders - Texas

Playing next to AD Mitchell and Xavier Worthy in the Longhorns' high-powered offense, Sanders held his own in the box score. His 48 career yards per game slide into the 83rd percentile and his team share of yards are in the 58th percentile. When team and age (barely 21 years old) adjusted, that's real nice stuff. Sanders works well over the middle and can sit in zone coverage reliably with a 0% drop rate, but there's a lack of burst to his game. He was schemed up big plays, yet never ran away from defenders or created a ton of separation. Only 4 forced missed tackles on 45 receptions is tough. His NFL Combine results back that up. Sanders (6'4"/245) has 40th percentile weight-adjusted speed, 8th percentile vertical, and opted out of the three cone. His ceiling is capped for that reason, but he was productive (1.9 YPRR) for a tight end who did stay inline on 64% of his snaps.

72. DT7 Mekhi Wingo - LSU

Give me all the 21-year-old early declares from the SEC at premium positions. Wingo also happens to have 85th percentile weight-adjusted speed (4.85 forty at 6'0"/286) and a 91st percentile three cone. Despite his youth, he was an LSU team captain and had an elite 13% pressure rate, largely because of a freaky get off. That led to 4.5 sacks in just 8 games. Wingo primarily played in the b gap (68% snaps) as a pass-rushing three tech but did kick out to the perimeter for 22% snaps to take advantage of his quickness. I'm surprised he's not getting more buzz. It's likely because of his bottom 5th percentile size. Hopefully he can add another 10 pounds of muscle during his rookie contract and land in a system that's willing to give him stunts. On the downside, he could fall into a pass-rush-only rotation.

73. LB3 Payton Wilson - NC State

He enrolled in college back in 2018. 2018!!! That means he's a 24-year-old on draft night and comes with an injury history. As dangerous of a combination that is, Wilson makes up for it in a lot of ways. His 11.5 tackles per game are in the 96th percentile among drafted linebackers since 2005. 17.5 of them were tackles for loss, too. Wilson has range in pass coverage, leading 6 pass deflections and 3 interceptions. That's a lot of positive tape. He lit up the NFL Combine with an elite 4.43 forty (97th percentile) and 6.85 three cone, but NFL teams will have to live with his 230-pound frame and 30 inch arms. Those could become bigger issues in the pros. The injuries could be, too. Boom-bust.

74. EDGE10 Bralen Trice - Washington

Already 23.5 years old, Trice is a low-ceiling prospect in a very defined role. 98% of his redshirt senior snaps came outside the tackle where he'd switch from having a hand in the dirt or standing up off the edge. Trice's 14% pressure rate and 7.0 sacks are decent, but his tackles for loss numbers are in the 21st percentile. The Husky is thin for the position (6'3"/245) and likely won't be a contributor against the run despite his competitiveness. At the NFL Combine, Trice checked in as a 34th percentile athlete with a 27th percentile vert and 59th percentile three cone.

75. S3 Malik Mustapha - Wake Forest

His tape is a lot of fun. Mustapha flies around the field, laying the boom despite being just 5'10". His 209-pound frame is built for the box, where he played on 53% of his snaps. Mustapha is constantly around the ball and has high-end tackling ability. His 21 run stops are near the top of the class, and his tackles per game are in the 74th percentile. Despite this physical profile, he still runs well. He had 54th percentile speed at the NFL Combine with a monster 41-inch vertical and 126-inch broad jump. There's a lot to like with the 21-year-old early declare.

76. S4 Jaden Hicks - Washington State

After starting for two seasons, Hicks declared as a 21-year-old redshirt sophomore. He has a nice frame (6'1"/211) and plays like a classic strong safety. The Cougar only played deep safety on 25% of his snaps, more often sliding into the box or into the slot. He made 24 run stops (top-10 in the Power 5) with an aggressive play style that mostly works but can get him into trouble on occasion. His 6.6 tackles per game fall into the 72nd percentile among drafted safeties, which is very good for a young player. His forty time fell into the 60th percentile, so there's a relative cap to his success, particularly as a range safety against the pass.

77. S5 Cole Bishop - Utah

The 21-year-old early declare showed off at the NFL Combine. Bishop ran a 4.45 forty (78th percentile) and had 39-inch hops at average weight (206 pounds). His athleticism translated to the field, where the Utes put him all over the place. He was a deep safety on 42% snaps, in the box or on the line of scrimmage on 37% snaps, and lined up at corner or in the slot on the remaining 21% snaps. For a safety who played everywhere, his production behind the line of scrimmage is impressive. He had 13 run stops, 6.5 tackles for loss, and 3.0 sacks.

78. S6 Tyler Nubin - Minnesota

Nubin is a classic deep safety (61% snaps) with instincts and experience. He's started 43 games, giving him a better understanding of scheme and play development than the rest of the class. He's undersized (6'1"/199) with minimal tackle production, however. Nubin's 4.4 tackles per game are in the 19th percentile and he made just 10 run stops as a redshirt senior. The NFL Combine was very underwhelming and maybe the reason why he didn't declare earlier in his career. He has 25th percentile speed (4.59), a 31.5-inch vert, and 6th percentile agilities. To overcome his lack of production and athleticism, Nubin has to have rare instincts. This is a position where those do matter a ton.

79. DT8 Braden Fiske - Florida State

After four seasons at Western Michigan peaking at 6.0 sacks, Fiske transferred to be a Seminole as a redshirt senior. He picked up another 6.0 sacks with 45th percentile tackles for loss per game among drafted defensive tackles. Already 24 years old, Fiske wouldn't be a top-100 player without his NFL Combine results. The 4.78 forty is in the 96th percentile for example. That said, it's uncertain if his 31-inch arm and 12th percentile weight will hold up against pro-level guards. He played in the b gap on 83% of his snaps. Fiske may have to settle into a pass-rush only role.

80. RB3 Blake Corum - Michigan

81. EDGE10 Adisa Isaac - Penn State

Despite having far less buzz than Chop Robinson, Isaac was the Nittany Lions' top pass rusher in 2023. He had a 15% pressure rate, 7.5 sacks, and 67th percentile tackles for loss per game as a redshirt senior, all fine numbers for an achilles tear recoveree. Isaac lined up outside the tackle on almost all of his snaps because he doesn't have ideal size (6'4"/247) to handle potential double teams. He only has 54th percentile speed and burst according to his NFL Combine measurables, but Isaac can turn the corner and bend a bit.

82. EDGE11 Brandon Dorlus - Oregon

The redshirt senior shuffled across the defensive line for the Ducks. He was a true outside rusher in 2022 (86% snaps off tackle) before playing in the b gap on 61% snaps last year. Dorlus has tweener size (6'3"/283) with 22nd percentile athleticism as an edge rusher. His value will be with his physicality as an end on passing downs with the pass rush chops to work from the interior on obvious passing downs. Dorlus' 10% pressure rate and bottom 3rd percentile tackles for loss numbers work against him being a difference maker as a regular outside rusher, but he is more effective than standard defensive tackles at chasing the QBs on 3rd downs.

83. EDGE12 Jonah Elliss - Utah

There are a lot of sleeper characteristics to Elliss' profile. He's a 21-year-old early declare with a ton of production in a defense known for NFL talent. Elliss led the class in sacks per game (1.2) and had 90th percentile tackles for loss numbers compared to drafted edge rushers since 2005. Because he's undersized (6'2"/248), the Utes lined him outside tackles on 86% of his snaps to let his pass rush instincts and motor take over. There are some transition issues to work through because he only had a 12% pressure rate and many of sacks were in the effort variety, but Elliss has time to physically mature and comes equipped with very nice bend around the corner. In fact, his 6.69 three cone drill is in the 100th percentile, essentially tied with Von Miller.

84. EDGE13 Mohamed Kamara - Colorado State

Nobody in the FBS had a better pressure rate (24%) than Kamara did last year, and his redshirt junior season was at 17%. The 23-year-old beat up on younger players in a below-average conference, but it wasn't just pass rushing. His tackles for loss numbers are in the 81st percentile, too. There's a relentlessness to his game on tape, and he posted 74th percentile athleticism at the NFL Combine with an 87th percentile 10-yard split. Kamara can't fix his size (6'1"/248 with below average length), but that hasn't stopped him yet and he has the first step burst to stress tackles from the perimeter. 96% of his snaps came from outside the tackle. Smart.

85. OT9 Kiran Amegadjie - Yale

Nobody should feel confident in their projection here. Amegadjie has 919 snaps at left tackle and 669 snaps at left guard, all against Ivy League type of opponents. He also suffered a torn quad after playing just 4 games as a true junior, which lingered throughout the draft process (no testing). On tape, Amegadjie is a total alpha in the run game with NFL size (6'5"/323 with 36-inch arms) and athleticism. He can bend and move his feet in pass protection, then anchor against bull rushes his powerful legs. His inexperience against elite talent and a plethora of pass-rush moves likely makes him a backup as a rookie.

86. LB4 Cedric Gray - North Carolina

Still only 21.5 years old, Gray has had three seasons with over 100 tackles. He's averaged 10.1 tackles per game (87th percentile) in back-to-back seasons, adding 0.9 tackles for loss over the same span. Gray is a ball magnet with great feel for the game. He bats down passes in coverage, wound up with a few interceptions, and even contributed on special teams as a Tar Heel. Gray's 96th percentile age and team adjusted production is worth a Day 2 dart throw, even if he has average speed (58th percentile forty) and below average size (24th percentile weight). Power 5 linebackers don't stumble upon 369 tackles by accident.

87. LB5 Trevin Wallace - Kentucky

Only 21 years old after declaring as a true junior, Wallace is a projection with an intriguing profile. He has 88th percentile weight-adjusted speed (4.51 forty at 237) and a 37.5-inch vertical. Wallace has sideline-to-sideline range and can be sent on some blitzes (5.5 sacks). His production doesn't quite match his traits, however. His 6.7 tackles per game fall in the 39th percentile. The tackles for loss are in the below-average range, too. If he's not ready for a full-time role immediately, Wallace can contribute on special teams as a rookie. Early declares out of the SEC deserve some patience and grooming. The upside is real.

88. RB4 Marshawn Lloyd - USC

89. G8 Christian Mahogany - Boston College

Opting out of the bench press as an offensive guard? I'm not sure about that one!!! The 5th-year senior played very well coming off a 2022 torn ACL, but medicals will be key here. Mahogany (6'3"/313) is an above-average athlete (77th percentile forty and 85th percentile short shuttle) for someone who played in a heavy gap scheme. The Eagles had more power, duo, counter, and inside zone attempts than they did outside zone (39 snaps), so grades are likely all over the place based on scheme and drop-back rate.

90. WR16 Malik Washington - Virginia

My writeup on the WR class is here.

91. WR17 Jalen McMillan - Washington

My writeup on the WR class is here.

92. WR18 Javon Baker - UCF

93. WR19 Malachi Corley - Western Kentucky

94. RB5 Audric Estime - Notre Dame

95. RB6 Jaylen Wright - Tennessee

96. TE3 Theo Johnson - Penn State

At some point being 6'6"/259 with 86th percentile speed, a 92nd percentile 10-yard split, 96th percentile vert, 89th percentile broad, 89th percentile short shuttle, and a 44th percentile three cone has to translate. Right? At the very least, Johnson projects as a quality blocking tight end with the ability to leak out on play action. He doesn't play as gracefully as his NFL Combine results, especially after the catch, but Johnson can be an issue on more straight-line routes. He's a predictable, stiff as a route runner right now (1.3 YPRR), which explains why he has 39th percentile team and age adjusted production. Johnson will be 23 years old as a rookie.

97. TE4 Ben Sinnott - Kansas State

He only trailed Brock Bowers in forced missed tackles (14) at the position, while operating in the slot (40%) at times. Sinnott is in the 79th percentile in team share of yards and 75th percentile in career yards per game, so there's a receiving upside here. At the NFL Combine, he posted 84th percentile weight-adjusted athleticism with a 97th percentile vert and 95th percentile three cone. He doesn't play that gracefully, yet does have nice ball tracking with the ability to run the seams and get upfield on wheel routes. After the catch, Sinnott is a pain to bring down. His #34 jersey gives off some fancy fullback vibes, but he is 6'4"/250.

98. QB7 Spencer Rattler - South Carolina

Rattler plays the game on All Madden, but he doesn't have the physical tools to make good on his style. He's a gamer who is willing to live in chaos inside the pocket, and the Gamecocks' offensive line definitely put him in some risky situations. Rattler has some highlight throws because he's willing to throw the ball in tight windows and take a huge hit at the release, but there is no consistency, even with his arm talent. Despite being a 23-year-old redshirt senior, he didn't produce statistically (18th percentile EPA per play and 48th percentile total EPA) and still took too many sacks (bottom 2nd percentile in EPA lost to sacks). Some of that was OL related. Some of that was sup-bar decision-making. Some of that is being a 6-foot-0, 211-pound quarterback with 4.95 speed. There are clear limitations to his game, even if he's capable of getting hot as a passer in a better environment.

99. OT10 Blake Fisher - Notre Dame

A knee injury during his freshman season meant Joe Alt would take over at left tackle, pushing Fisher to right tackle for his sophomore and junior seasons (25 starts). He's only 21 years old with room to develop. He's allowed 6 QB hits in the last two years but a too high pressure rate. Fisher flies out of his stance right at the snap, but he's a little too out of control from there and doesn't quite have the athletic traits to make up for it. He has average size (6'5"/310 with 34.4-inch arms), a 56th percentile forty, and a 52nd percentile three cone. There were too many failed reps against stunts, and he was bull rushed into the QB at times. He's a backup with the potential to be an average right tackle starter.

100. S7 Kamren Kinchens - Miami

No safety in the class has more highlight plays in the pass game. Kinchens has 11 interceptions and 22 pass deflections in his last two seasons. He is aggressive, fast decision-maker who can surprise QBs by getting to the sideline or down hill in the seam before the ball gets to the target. His tackles per game also fall into the 59th percentile because that mindset applies to the ground game, too. Unfortunately, Kinchens ran the forty in 4.65 seconds (9th percentile) and opted out of the agilities. It's unclear if his play style can continue at the next level where the margins are tighter. The 21-year-old early declare has special teams experience.
