SNS 2024 NFL Draft - Seventh Round Observations & Notes

The seventh round started with an international twist. Travis Clayton, a rugby and soccer player from Great Britain, was drafted by the Bills out of the International Pathways Program. Clayton is a project but one with huge upside. Clayton is tall, big, and long with dancer's feet acquired from years of playing two sports that require physical coordination, body control, and hand-eye coordination. Expect Clayton to start the year on the practice squad and he will probably not contribute for at least a couple of seasons. But his upside is immeasurable.

In total, thirteen Michigan players were drafted this past weekend, the most in the 2024 draft. Only Georgia with 14 players drafted in 2022 exceeded Michigan's number. Texas had eleven players drafted while Florida State and Washington had ten players drafted from each school. These four schools lost four combined games and occupied three of the four playoff spots last season. 

Only one service academy prospect was drafted this year, but one helluva player that prospect was this last season. Trey Taylor (Air Force) was a consensus All-American and the first ever service academy member to win the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's best defensive back. The Raiders need to add more depth to the secondary and Taylor has the range to play as a free safety and excellent ball skills to take advantage of opportunities. Taylor will need to prove his worth on special teams, but he has a very good chance of making Vegas' roster.

In total, eleven QBs were selected in Detroit this past weekend, which is right around the normal number drafted in any given year. Several quality QB prospects went undrafted, most notably Sam Hartman (Notre Dame), who set the career ACC passing record at Wake Forest before transferring to South Bend. He'll be a heavily sought after UDFA. Austin Reed (Western Kentucky), Carter Bradley (South Alabama), Taulia Tagovailoa (Maryland), Jack Plummer (Louisville), Kedon Slovis (BYU), and John Rhys Plumlee (UCF), all have good chances to make a practice squad for the 2024 season.

The NFL Draft may be over but at SNS, we are just getting started! Over the next couple of weeks, SNS will do a deep and thorough review and analysis of the entire NFL Draft, including an assessment of all 32 NFL teams' drafts and UDFA acquisitions, and keep track of the hundreds of prospects who could make NFL rosters as free agents.
