2024 NFL Draft: Top 100 Prospect Rankings (Final Update)

Adonai Mitchell - Fantasy Football Rankings, Draft Sleepers, NFL Injury News

With the NFL Draft just a day away, it’s time to submit my final rankings for this class.

Below, you will find the top-100 prospects on my board for 2024. There will be some changes from last month, as well as some surprises. Feel free to criticize my choices and views on the platform formerly known as “Twitter.”

For these rankings, positional value does play a small role. However, it will not force clearly inept or inferior prospects over better ones. Positional value only matters in terms of very close tiebreaking scenarios, such as comparing Caleb Williams and

Top-100 NFL Draft Prospects

1. Caleb Williams, QB, USC

Williams remains my top prospect. While there is an argument that the receivers in this group are "better pure prospects," none are quarterbacks. Further, Williams' upside at his position is just about as good as any player in this class. He is a playmaker with a strong arm, mobility, and instincts. The All-Pro potential for Williams is higher than almost any other QB prospect in the past decade.

2. Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, Ohio State

Think of Harrison Jr. as the next Larry Fitzgerald. The former Cardinals legend was rarely named the top receiver in the NFL when he played, always deferring to superstars like Randy Moss or Calvin Johnson. However, Fitzgerald’s quiet determination, size, and intelligence helped him produce a Hall of Fame career that is arguably more impressive than those other guys.

3. Malik Nabers, WR, LSU

Nabers is an elite playmaker. He'd have been the top receiver in the last two draft classes and would be in this one if not for Harrison Jr. The LSU product can do almost anything well. Separating him from Harrison is almost splitting hairs.

4. Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

There is a little disrespect coming Odunze’s way this year. People mention him as a distant third to Harrison Jr. and Nabers, but the gap isn’t that wide. In fact, one could argue that Odunze might be the best receiver fit for teams who value a polished big body who thrives on sideline and over-the-shoulder throws. His hands are tremendous.

5. Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Bowers won’t be anything but an average blocker, but blocking isn’t why people love him. The Georgia product has produced as a receiver since his freshman year. He has a better combination of size, length, and speed than any other tight end prospect of the past decade not named Kyle Pitts. Bowers plays like a star big-bodied wide receiver.

6. Drake Maye, QB, North Carolina

Maye had some struggles this year, predominantly with his footwork and consistent accuracy. However, he throws with the most velocity in this class and is the best over-the-middle passer in the group as well. Maye’s athleticism is underrated, too. The North Carolina product is my second-rated quarterback prospect of the past three draft classes, behind only Caleb Williams.

7. Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

Joe Alt is arguably the safest prospect in this class. He will play this entire season at 21 and has played both sides of the line at Notre Dame, sometimes in the same game. Alt is an NFL legacy who plays with polish, consistency, and intelligence. There isn’t much he can’t do well.

8. Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

As I've said before, Daniels has a very high ceiling. His touch on deep balls is artistic and his ability to break long runs is amongst the best to come out of college in the past 20 years. However, I still have questions about his velocity, slight frame, and tendency to run every time he scrambles.

9. Troy Fautanu, OL, Washington

Troy Fautanu is the cleanest tackle in this class, largely thanks to impeccable footwork, strong blitz recognition, and good angles. I have been higher on him than consensus since November. He stands out for his demeanor and consistency in both pass protection and run support.

10. Quinyon Mitchell, CB, Toledo

Mitchell is my favorite off-coverage corner in this class. He has also shown the ability to thrive in press and man coverage. He is a smart, long, and athletic player with the fewest blemishes of any corner in this class.

11. Cooper DeJean, CB/S, Iowa

DeJean might have been my top corner if he hadn't suffered a serious leg injury late last season. He's a phenomenal kick returner, consistently secures the boundary, is a reliable tackler, and has positional flexibility. DeJean's superb recognition and breaking ability means he is best suited for zone coverage, though.

12. Jared Verse, DE, Florida State

Verse is my personal favorite in this pass-rush group. He's tenacious, strong, and continuously disruptive. While players like Dallas Turner are better fits for a 3-4 scheme or a defense that wants an athlete for an edge, Verse brings almost guaranteed production as a mauler who pushes the pocket and dominates against the run.

13. Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama

Turner and Chop Robinson are fighting to be the most "twitched-up" athlete among this year's pass-rushers. Between those two, Turner's film and production are far more impressive. His best fit is likely in a 3-4 scheme, with Turner playing off the line in a stand-up role. He is familiar with that role and should thrive in it.

14. Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State

Fashanu’s stock was falling before he disappointed in multiple drills at the Combine. That stock is slowly ticking up, though. The Penn State product remains the highest-upside pass-blocker in this class thanks to his length, strong grip, and movement skills. This is the most boom-or-bust lineman in the class, but his upside is worth the risk.

15. Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama

Arnold ran a disappointing 40-yard dash at the Combine, but he plays faster than his 4.50 time suggests. His press and man coverage skills are still good enough to consider him the top man-to-man cover corner in this class. I simply don’t see the athletic or big-play upside with him that I do with DeJean or Mitchell.

16. Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

Latu simply gets the job done. However, he's an average athlete with significant injury concerns, which could drive him down draft boards. That said, there are no doubts about his production or polish. Latu's handwork and pass-rush plan are otherworldly.

17. BrIan Thomas Jr., WR, LSU

Several receivers in this class can match Thomas Jr.'s deep speed, but none have his mutant-like length. Even better, Thomas tracks the deep ball well and is underrated when working the corner of the end zone and the middle of the field.

18. Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

Fuaga is a mauling right tackle who has fallen behind JC Latham on many boards, but he remains the top run-blocking tackle in my rankings. The Oregon State alum knocks people on their butts, and I have fewer questions about his ability to secure the inside edge than I do Latham.

19. Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia

Mims is reportedly climbing up boards late in this process, and it's easy to see why. He has tremendous size and moves incredibly well for that size. The Bulldog moves to secure both gaps well while playing with power and finesse. He's raw and injuries are a major concern, but he has more upside than most blockers in this class.

20. J.J. McCarthy, QB, Michigan

Call me a skeptic, but I remain in the group that thinks McCarthy is a good quarterback prospect who shouldn't be saddled with the expectations of a top-10 pick. He throws with velocity, is quick on his feet, and has good mechanics. McCarthy is also a proven winner and team-first guy. He just hasn't done enough to merit a lofty investment and burdensome expectations.

21. Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

Guyton remains one of my favorite prospects in this class. He plays hard, has a huge frame that moves well on agile feet, loves football, and punishes in run support. Guyton is inexperienced and carries risk, but like Mims, he has the potential to be a Pro Bowl-caliber tackle in time.

22. Adonai Mitchell, WR, Texas

Mitchell has slowly climbed up my board this month, partly because I anticipate he will be drafted by a team that knows how to maximize his skill set, such as the Bills or Chiefs. In the right setting and scheme, Mitchell could be special. He has great size, is a polished route runner, doesn't drop passes, and tested off the charts at the Combine. His motor is my biggest question.

23. Byron Murphy II, DT, Texas

After watching all his film, Murphy is comfortably atop the DT rankings in this draft class. The Texas product pushes the pocket and disrupts the pass with vigor and intensity, utilizing his size and length to overcome quality interior blockers like Cooper Beebe. He is inconsistent and isn’t an elite prospect, but he shows enough to expect he will become an above-average interior defender in the NFL.

24. Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

McConkey is one player I consistently rate higher than most. His suddenness out of breaks and change of direction speed are scary. He also shows the deep speed that some pretend he doesn't have, burning Terrion Arnold for a big play this year. McConkey can be a high-end receiver in the NFL. He isn't just a slot weapon.

25. JC Latham, OT, Alabama

Another pure right tackle with a massive frame, Latham plays with a lot of power and a good anchor in run support. However, he isn’t a premium athlete; his feet are a bit slow and he's often late cutting off inside moves. Rumors have Latham being one of the first tackles off the board on draft night, if not the first. That would be too high, even if he is a good run-blocking prospect.

26. Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson

Wiggins remains a polarizing cover corner with blazing speed and concerning size. He's a willing tackler, never quits on a play, and has solid ball skills. He will make an impact in today's NFL, even if bigger receivers can run him through.

27. Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

Powers-Johnson has a thick, powerful upper body that catches defenders and holds them in a net. His excellent balance and core strength allow him to bend but not break in the face of powerful interior rushers. He also does a good job twisting defenders out of running lanes.

28. Graham Barton, OL, Duke

A player with experience at both center and tackle, Barton is one of the more popular prospects in this class. His arms are a bit short for an NFL tackle, and that can show up on film when he must grab or hug defenders to hold the edge. As an interior prospect, though, he has a very high ceiling. His clean movement and powerful hands would make him a tremendous starting center.

29. Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

There is no getting around the fact Coleman disappointed at the Combine, particularly by finishing second to last at his position with a 4.61 40-yard dash. That statistic seems to have forced me into a leadership position for Coleman's fan club.

While many are now out on Coleman due to his testing, he doesn't play as slow as his 40-time suggests. Many factors indicate he is a faster player than a sprinter, such as his Combine-leading gauntlet time. The FSU product leaps over tacklers and hauls in errant passes with grace and glue. He isn't for everyone, but Coleman can be a WR1 for someone.

30. Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

Worthy's record-breaking 40-yard dash has rocketed him up many draft boards, just not mine. The Texas speedster remains a late-first-round prospect in my book. He's still very fast, good with the ball in his hands, and elusive. Worthy is also small, has an injury history, and his production in college never showed he could be a true WR1. His success depends on his location.

31. Michael Penix Jr., QB, Washington

Penix Jr. is an older prospect with a lengthy injury history. He also has a wonky delivery, and his ball placement isn't always great. However, the Indiana transfer has tremendous arm strength, is faster than advertised, and wins games. Penix isn't an elite prospect due to several concerns, but he has enough talent to become an above-average starter.

32. T.J. Tampa, CB, Iowa State

Tampa has tremendous length and the best size of any corner at the top of this class. He’s also aggressive in all phases. He throws himself into tackles, commits in run support, lays out receivers coming across the middle, and fights for the ball…. That aggression will also lead to penalties if he isn’t careful. Tampa hits high and reaches early at times.

33. Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

McKinstry has tested better than expected, but his film still shows limitations. He's an intelligent player, good in press and man coverage, and has plenty of experience. Kool-Aid also reads receivers well and keeps them off balance after the snap.

34. Chop Robinson, DE, Penn State

Sack artists who do not get sacks in college do not typically grade well for me, no matter how well they test. We have seen too many athletic but undersized edges come in with no production and… continue not producing in the NFL. Meanwhile, the superstar sack artists in the NFL typically have plenty of sack success in college. This goes for Nick Bosa, Myles Garrett, and T.J. Watt.

Robinson does have an elite first step, though. He is lightning-quick off the snap and even my mother can see he is faster off the ball than is normal. That will get him drafted highly.

35. Xavier Legette, WR, South Carolina

It has taken me some time to come around on Legette because aspects of his film feel… lumbering. The Gamecock has a massive frame that he can contort to reel in stray throws, and he has the straight-line speed to get behind a secondary and lose everyone. He just doesn't play smooth or move well laterally, which are things I look for when evaluating receivers.

36. Darius Robinson, DL, Missouri

Robinson is a versatile player who has played defensive tackle with more weight and defensive end with less. He did the latter this year, shedding pounds to secure the edge. He isn't quick off the snap and doesn't have much bend or finesse, but he does set the edge and get results with a powerful bull rush.

37. Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson

This is a thin defensive tackle class, with just one player earning a first-round grade from me. Orhorhoro has the best length of the top interior defenders in this class, though. He also shows good lateral movement, can play with leverage, and is instinctive in run support. The Clemson product can play 3-tech in a 4-3 scheme or 5-tech in a 3-4.

38. Ennis Rakestraw Jr., CB, Missouri

Rakestraw Jr. is a feisty and aggressive corner who is good in press coverage and is an active tackler. He had just one interception in 35 games with Missouri, though. His ability to stick opponents in man is great, but serious questions exist about his ball skills. That is why he will be drafted on Day 2.

39. Jer’Zhan, Newton, DT, Illinois

Newton's arms are on the short side. He also loses himself too often against the run and can play a bit stiff. However, he is an effective pass-rusher who knows how to manipulate opponents and shoot free gaps.

40. Edgerrin Cooper, LB, Texas A&M

Cooper is an aggressive playmaker. While he isn't a traditional interior linebacker, he brings a versatile skill set thanks to elite athleticism. There is not a better pure athlete at linebacker in this class. Cooper is a quality spy, an above-average blitzer, and should become a quality cover man in time.

41. Jordan Morgan, OL, Arizona

Morgan is a decent athlete on film, but he struggles with blitz recognition and knowing when to hand off double-teams to grab the free rusher. He also whiffs too often on pulls and second-level blocks. That said, he should be a quality starting guard in the NFL if he can’t stay at offensive tackle.

42. Zach Frazier, C, West Virginia

Frazier has a thick build and a ton of upper body strength, which allows him to pop defenders back with strong hands and throw them to the ground on down blocks. He can be a bit of a hugger and misses on hand placement at times, but he’s a consistent veteran who surrendered just seven total quarterback pressures in 2023.

43. Payton Wilson, LB, North Carolina State

Wilson is another interior linebacker in this class whose game may translate better to the outside in the NFL. He's a top-tier athlete, finishing as the fastest linebacker at the Combine in the 40-yard dash and 10-yard split. Wilson also has good length and excellent lateral agility. He can cover, rush the passer, and collect tackles. His injury history is the only question.

44. Kamari Lassiter, CB, Georgia

Opponents targeted Lassiter just 36 times in 2023. He reciprocated by allowing a mere 14 catches in 12 games. Lassiter isn't a premium athlete, but he plays with instincts and positions himself so his opponent never appears open to the quarterback.

45. Braden Fiske, DT, Florida State

Fiske was productive as an interior pass-rusher at two different colleges. He has also aced the predraft process, impressing at the Senior Bowl before turning in some of the best numbers of any defensive tackle at the Combine.

46. Ricky Pearsall, WR, Florida

Pearsall is underweight, so many write him off as a slot-only option. In that way, he is much like Ladd McConkey. Both Pearsall and McConkey have proven they are more than just slot possession receivers, though. Pearsall makes highlight-reel catches, secures the ball through contact, has deep speed, and runs through tackles.

47. Malachi Corley, WR, Western Kentucky

Baby Deebo has a nose for the end zone and is tremendously productive on screens and crossers. His hands don’t have to be elite because his primary skill is breaking tackles and making plays. Consider him an all-around weapon who can thrive in the right scheme. The only concern would be whether his coach will ask him to be a pure wide receiver instead of a weapon.

48. Javon Baker, WR, UCF

Baker has great body control, above-average size, plenty of length, and is always a big-play threat. He has more than enough speed on film and shakes tacklers in open space. He is a wildly underrated prospect in this class.

49. Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU

Perhaps the rawest prospect amongst the likely Day 2 picks, Suamataia has tremendous length and movement skills. He also has strong NFL bloodlines as the cousin of Penei Sewell. His hand placement is a mess, though.

The BYU product needs a lot of coaching and sideline time to perfect his technique. Suamataia could be a very good starting tackle for a decade if he can do that.

50. Adisa Isaac, DE, Penn State

Isaac isn't the athlete teammate Chop Robinson is, but he is more productive and polished than Robinson at this stage of their careers. Unlike Robinson, Isaac produces with preparation, pre-snap awareness, hustle, and a quality slide-step.

51. T’Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas

Sweat is one of the best run defenders in this entire class. He is a massive man who is incredibly hard to move. Sweat also lacks endurance and isn't a consistently effective pass-rusher, largely due to his overwhelming size. This Longhorn could be a steal in a defense that only asks him to play 20-25 snaps and focus on run support.

52. Troy Franklin, WR, Oregon

Franklin is a tall and fast receiver who knows how to make defenders miss. His frame is thin, but he has the size to add muscle and become sturdier. He gets good separation at the tops of his routes and on go-routes. However, his hands are some of the most inconsistent in the class. He dropped nine balls in 2023 and PFF rated him the 695th-best WR in their DROP grade.

53. Bo Nix, QB, Oregon

Nix is an extremely accurate thrower, especially on screens and intermediate throws. He’s also deceptively mobile, though he isn’t fast enough to be considered a “running” quarterback in the NFL. Perhaps the best quality of the Auburn transfer is his processing. Nix knows where to go with the football and when, giving him Brock Purdy-like upside in the right system.

54. Jaylen Wright, RB, Tennessee

Wright easily outpaces the rest of this running back class in breakaway ability. His straight-line speed is great, which fits his one-cut-and-go style. He also shows adequate hands on checkdowns and is a committed pass-blocker. The Vol has the size to hold as an every-down back, though his ability to handle a heavy workload hasn't yet been tested.

55. Andru Phillips, CB, Kentucky

Phillips is one of many cornerbacks in this class who are willing and capable tacklers. He is aggressive on blitzes and has zero hesitation in dropping down to tackle when a ball carrier comes into his zone. Phillips is also comfortable playing with his back to the receiver and reading the quarterback, containing the pass-catcher on the boundary with instinctive leverage.

56. Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas

Brooks is the only back who could compete with Jaylen Wright at the top of my running back rankings, but his ACL injury drops him a notch below. The Texas product paid his dues behind some elite backs in Austin, only to flash every-down ability for the few weeks he was healthy in 2023. Brooks still has the highest floor of any back in this class if healthy.

57. Mike Sainristil, CB, Michigan

The top nickel corner in this draft, Sainristil, has good hands and an understanding of how opponents will run routes. This is because he is a former receiver. He is a quick-twitch athlete with great reactions and reads in zone. This Wolverine is raw since he's only played corner for two years and he lacks the size to play outside, yet he’s still the best slot prospect in years.

58. Brandon Dorlus, DT, Oregon

Dorlus is a bit of a 'tweener. He's a little heavy to be a typical 4-3 defensive end but light for a defensive tackle. However, the Duck is explosive out of his stance and can anticipate the snap. He also plays with shock in his hands and good length. His technique can improve, but Dorlus would be a promising 5-tech project for a team like the Steelers.

59. Marshawn Kneeland, DE, Western Michigan

It was a mild shock when Kneeland ran 4.75 on the 40 at the Combine. He doesn't play with that kind of speed or burst, but he does show plenty of power on tape. Kneeland also displays solid change of direction and powerful hands, and he's surprisingly comfortable dropping into a shallow patrol or playing on his feet.

60. Roger Rosengarten, OT, Washington

Rosengarten is a projectable right tackle. He is a good athlete who plays with quick feet and limber legs and has the agility to cut off interior rushers or secure the outside corner. He also gets bowled over too often, lunges, and generally plays with inconsistent anchor and balance. He is a project that could turn into a quality right tackle in time.

61. Kris Jenkins, DT, Michigan

Jenkins defends the interior like a guard or center might hold the inside on offense. He sets anchor and refuses to be moved out of the way, disrupting nearly every run in his vicinity. The NFL legacy also moves well up and down the line when he wants. While his arms are short and he tends to let linemen into his pads, Jenkins disengages well and has a hot motor.

62. Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, Washington

Polk isn't a burner, but he has enough speed to get past your average corner. He also tracks the deep ball well, has above-average size, and utilizes good body control. While Rome Odunze's sidekick isn't sudden or quick off the line, he has some Chris Godwin qualities in his tape.

63. Roman Wilson, WR, Michigan

Wilson is lower on my board than many others, but he's a quality slot receiver who could play outside in the right situation. His speed is above average, running in a straight line or laterally. The undersized Wolverine also makes more leaping grabs than you would expect for his height. However, he also gets outmuscled and lacks consistent polish in his routes.

64. Chris Braswell, EDGE, Alabama

The Senior Bowl was not an ideal showing for Braswell, who was an afterthought against some of the better blockers in the class. However, he plays with above-average speed and good balance. Braswell also shows solid change-of-direction speed, plays with a high motor, and creates spacing with long arms and power. His bend isn't great, but he won nearly 20% of his pass- rush reps.

65. Tyler Nubin, S, Minnesota

Nubin collected 13 interceptions over the past four years, displaying the instinct to jump in-breaking routes regularly. He also allowed a meager 30% completion rate as the closest man in coverage last year. The Golden Gopher is a quality patrol man in the secondary, though his film doesn’t stand out as special like former Gopher Antoine Winfield Jr.’s did.

66. Christian Haynes, G, Connecticut

Haynes held his own at the Senior Bowl against two of the best defenders in Mobile, namely Darius Robinson and Braden Fiske. He plays with an edge, makes the proper handoff on stunts, engages well at the second level, has a thick but athletic build, and mirrors interior rushers when tasked with one-on-one duty.

67. Cooper Beebe, OG, Kansas State

Beebe is a big-boy guard who handles power and big bodies well. He is a strong and thick blocker who protects the inside shoulder and can move smaller defenders off the ball when met head-on. He did well against T'Vondre Sweat and had good reps against Byron Murphy II. Beebe does struggle finding targets on pulls and can be beaten with outside moves.

68. Kamren Kinchens, S, Miami

Kinchens had an abysmal Combine, running a pedestrian 4.65-second 40-yard dash. However, he doesn't look that slow on film. On film, Kinchens shows enough speed to secure the top and make plays on either sideline. He is a turnover machine, has experience in the slot, and can be a punishing tackler.

69. Patrick Paul, OT, Houston

Paul has good length and size with naturally light feet. He consumes bull rushers who hit him head-on and has enough agility to pick up blitzing corners deep off the edge. Paul had several quality snaps against Byron Murphy II this year, who is a potential first-round pick. However, Paul will lunge on occasion and he struggles with hand placement and recognition. He's also a bit slow off the snap.

70. Ben Sinnott, TE/FB, Kansas State

Sinnott has leaped over Ja'Tavion Sanders to become the second tight end on my board. On film, he makes contested catches, shows burst off the line, and has above-average lateral mobility for his size. The Kansas State product is also a willing blocker, with potential to become a good one. Sinnott could be a quality old-school tight end, or he could become the best fullback in the NFL.

71. Javon Bullard, CB/S, Georgia

Although undersized, Bullard is stout in run support and a heavy tackler. He is arguably at his best when playing nickel corner, an increasingly valuable position in today's NFL. He is a tenacious defender, and the type of personality others will follow into battle.

72. Jaden Hicks, S, Washington State

Hicks has good size that he uses to drop the hammer on crossing routes, which could get him in trouble in the NFL. He has plenty of length, good instincts, and is experienced playing all over the field. Most teams will likely utilize him as a strong safety who pulls double-time in the box and brings the blitz regularly.

73. Brandon Coleman, OG, TCU

Coleman was a big left tackle at TCU, but he should be a guard in the NFL. He played that position at the Senior Bowl and was effective against some quality interior rushers. He has a stiff upper body but plays with punch and good grip strength. His lower body is also surprisingly nimble, given his hip and upper-body stiffness. He should be one of the better guards in this class.

74. Javon Solomon, EDGE, Troy

Solomon was used a lot as a natural defensive end at Troy, but his lack of size means he will likely need to play a standing 3-4 linebacker role in the NFL. He plays with a surprisingly good anchor, though, considering his size. He also uses several moves to get pressure from outside and inside. He does get engulfed by bigger and longer blockers, so playing with space will be key.

75. Mohamed Kamara, EDGE, Colorado State

Kamara ends up on the ground far too often for a pass-rusher who plays with power. However, he doesn't stay there. He plays with tenacity and leverage and makes tackles from his knees. With 28.5 sacks over the past three years, Kamara is one of the more accomplished pass-rushers to come out in some time.

76. Jarvis Brownlee Jr., CB, Louisville

Brownlee caught my attention at the Senior Bowl, where he had impressive reps against quality opponents. His film at Louisville is much better than when he was at Florida State, too. The FSU transfer is persistent and aggressive with his hands in press coverage while showing good instincts in zone. He breaks on the ball before the quarterback has released.

77. Max Melton, CB, Rutgers

Melton has adequate size, above-average speed, and fluid hips. His ball skills are also above average, as he attacks the ball and always looks to secure interceptions where there is an opportunity.

78. MarShawn Lloyd, RB, USC

Putting Lloyd ahead of Trey Benson is a risky move, given Benson's floor is significantly higher. In my estimation, Lloyd is a more instinctive and elusive runner on film, though. He puts the ball on the ground too often and his vision needs improvement, but he always pushes the pile forward and he regularly makes tacklers miss in space.

79. Trey Benson, RB, Florida State

Benson may be the safest running back in this class. He has very good straight-line speed, contact balance, soft hands, and can play every down. Unfortunately, his elite track speed doesn't always show up on tape, and he leaves yards on the field too often. Whether it's indecisiveness, an incorrect read, or stutter steps, Benson can miss opportunities to be special.

80. Ja'Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas

Sanders is a very good route runner and has solid hands. His testing numbers were a disappointment, though. That is concerning when you consider he didn't block often or particularly well at Texas. Sanders needs to either improve as a blocker to become an all-around asset, or he needs to be special as a receiving weapon. Otherwise, he will be a part-time player.

81. Michael Hall Jr., DT, Ohio State

Hall is undersized, but he’s a polished pass-rusher who creates pressure by slipping and bending through gaps. His best fit is likely a 3-tech who plays predominantly on passing downs. Hall doesn't have the size or power to consistently hold up against the run unless he adds weight that could sap his quickness and bend.

82. Cole Bishop, S, Utah

Bishop is a tall, long safety who excels in the box and as a blitzer. He is a sure tackler who thrives in run support. The Utah alum has enough range to manage the back end and he shows solid ball skills, but he is at his best playing closer to the line of scrimmage.

83. Mason McCormick, G, South Dakota State

McCormick was second amongst all guards in athletic score at the Combine. He is a durable and consistent blocker who gets his hat on people on pulls and picks up stunts very well. His testing numbers don't show up on film, but it helps knowing he has that kind of athletic potential when watching his clean and consistent film.

84. Junior Colson, LB, Michigan

Colson is an old-school linebacker. He's famous for his toughness and leadership on a championship-winning defense. The Wolverine plants and holds his ground in run support while playing with range to both ends. He occasionally misdiagnoses plays and guesses the wrong gaps, plus he isn't the all-around playmaker some defenses will want from their defensive leader.

85. DeWayne Carter, DT, Duke

Carter is an intelligent and safe prospect. He has experience playing all over the line, though his size necessitates him to play inside or on the end of a 3-4 defensive line in the NFL. He’s a thick figurehead who could have a career similar to Grover Stewart, meaning he isn’t likely to be a superstar, but NFL teams will value what he offers.

86. Calen Bullock, S/CB, USC

Bullock is one of the worst tacklers of all draft-eligible players I evaluated this year. He also has some of the best ball skills and instincts. A number of people think Bullock could play corner in the NFL instead of safety, where his coverage skills would be maximized while his tackling would be… slightly less of a liability.

87. Maason Smith, DT, LSU

Smith has struggled with injuries throughout his college career. He plays with good power, and his long arms allow him space when he gets his hands right. If Smith can improve his reaction time and hand work, he could become a quality starting defensive tackle in the NFL.

88. Jamari Thrash, WR, Louisville

Thrash struggled with drops more than Troy Franklin did, and Franklin dipped in my rankings for that very flaw. However, the Louisville receiver isn’t a first- or second-round prospect. He is a third-round prospect with superior route running, adequate size/speed combination, and an aggressiveness in the red zone.

89. Brenden Rice, WR, USC

To no one’s surprise, the son of Jerry Rice is a knowledgeable and polished route runner. He also has a thick and chiseled frame with good height and length. He isn’t the most explosive or dynamic receiver, but there is potential for him to be a good No. 2 pass-catcher in time.

90. Jonah Elliss, EDGE, Utah

A long and nuanced pass-rusher, Elliss isn’t an overly powerful or quick athlete. He does play through the whistle and regularly wins with good hand work. If he can land with a 3-4 defensive scheme that utilizes him as a rotational pass-rusher, Elliss could thrive.

91. Kiran Amegadjie, OT, Yale

Amegadjie has limber legs and an effective kick-slide in pass protection. He also has the frame to play in the NFL, which he utilizes well. Amegadjie rarely lost balance or lacked pop on contact at Yale, although that could be partially due to his inferior competition. The Yale tackle needs to work on his bend, leverage, and footspeed, but he could become a starting tackle someday.

92. Devontez Walker, WR, North Carolina

A long-striding deep-ball threat, Walker tracks long throws very well. He also has the size and build to be a lead receiver in the NFL. The Tar Heel did deal with drops this year, though. His predraft process was also a disappointment. He was not one of the more impressive receivers at the Senior Bowl, and things didn't get much better from there.

93. Spencer Rattler, QB, South Carolina

Rattler has reportedly dealt with the maturity issues that plagued him in high school and at Oklahoma. He can’t make himself taller, though. Rattler has above-average arm strength for the NFL, good mobility within the pocket, and he typically throws with timing. The former Sooner does get rattled by pressure and lacks ideal size, though.

94. Jalen McMillan, WR, Washington

Like his teammate Ja'Lynn Polk, McMillan has the potential to be a quality big slot in the NFL. He has a long gate, reliable hands, and is a nuanced route runner. However, injuries have been a problem for McMillan, and he doesn't show the deep speed or strength to play through press coverage on the edge. McMillan should become a starter on the inside.

95. Austin Booker, EDGE, Kansas

Booker is a premium but undersized athlete. He has a massive wingspan, understands how to read blocking schemes, and sets the edge against the run. Booker doesn't have a ton of experience and it shows, but his physical upside is significant.

96. Malik Washington, WR, Virginia

Washington is a short but stalky slot receiver who can handle a heavy workload across the middle. He makes sharp cuts, has controlled feet, and has consistent hands.

97. Xavier Thomas, DE, Clemson

Thomas is an undersized edge who is quick off the snap and utilizes a quality spin move. He struggles with power and doesn't yet have an advanced pass-rush move or a sophisticated set of counter moves. He largely relies on snap anticipation and speed around the corner. A good coach could help Thomas earn a double-digit sack season someday.

98. Dominick Puni, G, Kansas

Puni should become a quality swing tackle or a good starting guard in the NFL. The Kansas product isn’t a mauler, but he does move well and should be a quality fit in a zone-heavy offensive scheme.

99. Khyree Jackson, CB, Oregon

A well-built and long corner, Jackson reminds me of Jamel Dean when he came out of Auburn. He isn't overly quick or fluid and struggles with penalty-worthy plays, but he has the ideal size for the position and is a sufficient athlete for his build.

  1. Jeremiah Trotter Jr., LB, Clemson

As the son of a former NFL star, it should surprise no one that Trotter's primary skill is his football intelligence. He knows when to shoot the gap, when to stay in coverage, and when to take good angles. While his athleticism and size are average or worse, he is a natural-born football player who should be a good leader and defensive play-caller.
