SNS 2024 NFL Draft - Fourth Round Observations & Notes

After six of the first 12 selections were QBs (an NFL record), no QBs were selected until the fifth round (#150)  - also an NFL record for longest span of picks between QBs selected (138 picks). No QBs were picked in round four, which is unusual considering that given a night to sleep on it, trades are common at the top of the fourth round.

Tennessee grabbed the best LB in this draft at #105, Cedric Gray, a fast, instinctive, and quick tackling machine. Gray works well inside and outside and holds up well against the run with the coverage chops to handle TEs and RBs in coverage. He breaks down well in the open field and is durable and reliable. Outstanding selection.

RBs became a hot commodity in the fourth round. Starting with pick #125 and ending with pick #134, 5.5 RBs were selected (5.5? More on that in a second). Irving is quicker than fast and fits a need in Tampa. Shipley has three years of solid production in the ACC and gives Houston a challenger to Dameon Price as RB #1. Davis provides a high quality #3 RB in Buffalo. Guerendo gives the Niners a great change of pace back behind Christian McCaffrey. Allen is a horse with power and drive and gives the Jets another good RB. Finally, the Lions drafted human utility knife, Sione Vaki of Utah. Vaki played primarily as a safety in college but looked dynamic as a change of pace RB for the Utes. He should excel as a special teams player and give the Lions a versatile piece to play with. Vaki has a Dan Campbell like personality and fits the team culture well.

Speaking of the Lions, Detroit took a flyer on a player that most had never heard of - Giovanni Muni from British Columbia, Canada. But the Lions had Muni in for an official visit and worked him out, so due diligence was conducted. The fact the Lions traded up to acquire him indicates that interest around the league was high. And for good reason. A multi-year starter at OLT, he has extremely long arms, light feet, and natural athleticism. He will need significant development as his level of football played is quite low. But he has talent and upside to be developed.
