Xavier Weaver / WR / Colorado

Myles Murphy / IDL / North Carolina

Joe Shimko / LS / North Carolina State


The Cardinals were considered likely to trade with a QB-needy team, acquire more picks, and be very active in the trade market during the draft. None of that panned out. Arizona stayed at pick #4 and took a true generational talent in Harrison. The son of Hall of Famer, Marvin, Sr., is a complete WR without an obvious hole in his game. He is like a faster Larry Fitzgerald - a truly scary thought. He gives Murray a true stud on the outside. Robinson has the versatility to line up ad a DE or 3T. He has a quick first step, shoots low through the gap, and has an effective closing burst on the QB. Melton is quick with adequate size to line up outside or in the slot. Benson has great measurables and looks the part - he has very good burst and long speed but has never played up to his hype and he has an extensive injury history. Adams has experience at guard and OT, and has the strength and movement skills to become a starting guard in the NFL. Reiman is a huge TE who displayed athleticism at the Senior Bowl and combine to become more than the blocking TE he was at Illinois. Jones has the desired size and length to line up with big WRs with enough athleticism to handle quickness in space. DTD is fast and explosive and brings his pads on contact. Thomas, a former 5-star recruit, has battled injuries but has flashed the explosiveness and burst to become a quality pass rusher. Jones played ORT at Texas but has the length and athleticism to play either OT spot. He projects as a high-end swing tackle early in his career. Palmer is quick and uncovers easily against most CBs. His size most likely limits him to slot duties only. He will fight for a roster or practice squad spot this summer. Davis, a transfer from Oklahoma, is a gambling slot corner who likes to go for the big play - and often gets burned.

The Cardinals drafted 12 players during the seven round NFL Draft and were limited participants in signing UDFAs. But three UDFAs have excellent chances of earning a regular season or practice squad spot. Weaver is thin and injury prone but extremely quick and explosive with great deep speed. He will likely compete with Palmer for a regular season roster slot with the loser likely ending up on the practice squad. Murphy, is an experienced and often dominate run stuffing DT with limited burst or pass rushing upside. Shimko is a highly experienced long snapper who should battle for Arizona's long snapper job.

Los Angeles Rams


Total Picks - 10


1 (19) Jared Verse / EDGE / Florida State

2 (39) Braden Fiske / IDL / Florida State

3 (83) Blake Corum / RB / Michigan

3 (99) Kamren Kinchens / S / Miami, Fl

5 (154) Brennan Jackson / EDGE / Washington State

6 (196) Tyler Davis / IDL / Clemson

6 (209) Joshua Karty / K / Stanford

6 (213) Jordan Whittington / WR / Texas

Drake Stoops / WR / Oklahoma

Sam Wiglusz / WR / Ohio

Justin Dedich / IOL / USC

Anthony Goodlow / DL / Oklahoma State

Tuli Letuligasenoa / IDL / Washington

Josh Wallace / CB / Michigan


The Rams were a beneficiary of the first 14 picks being used on offense in the 2024 NFL Draft. At #19, the Rams were able to select SNS' #1 Edge defender, Jared Verse. Verse is a complete Edge with the power and leverage to seal the edge and the power and burst to close on the QB. He fills a big need in LA. His teammate, Fiske is an undersized DT with the quickness and tenacity and gives the Rams an inside pass rusher to help fill the void of the retired Aaron Donald. Corum has great ankle flexion and runs with very good power. He'll serve as a valuable backup to Pro Bowl RB Kyren Williams. Kinchens has excellent instincts and is an excellent ball athlete who is a turnover machine. Jackson, like Verse, is a power rusher who establishes containment well and has an effective bull rush. Davis plays with excellent leverage and holds the point well in the run attack. He is limited as a pass rusher but he gives maximum effort. Karty has an NFL-caliber leg with good accuracy. He could win the kicking competition this summer. Whittington has a good combination of size, speed, and leaping ability. He would have been a third or fourth round pick in a less talented draft and should contribute in LA as a rookie. Limmer has very good size for a center, is highly experienced, and a natural leader. Leveston played OLT at Kansas State but was listed as a guard by the Rams when drafted. Leveston has good mobility but lacks some strength. If he doesn't earn a roster spot, he will likely find himself on the practice squad.

Stoops will be difficult to cut. He's quick, willing to work the middle of the field, has reliable hands, and is a football nerd. Don't be surprised when he makes the roster this summer. Wiglusz is a similar player to Stoops, although he lined up out wide in college. He has trouble with physicality during his route but he is disciplined and has good hands. Dedich has experience at guard and center and will likely have to beat out Limmer to earn a roster spot. Goodlow is a solid, all-around DE without any outstanding characteristics  but also without any major flaws. He should earn a practice squad spot this summer. Letuligasenoa is a big, sturdy two-gap DT with surprising quickness. He'll push for a roster spot. Wallace, a transfer from UMASS, has good size and athleticism. he lacks any special qualities but he is assignment sound and always in the right position.

San Francisco 49ers


Total Picks - 8


1 (31) Ricky Pearsall / WR / Florida

2 (64) Renardo Green / CB / Florida State

3 (86) Dominick Puni / IOL / Kansas

4 (124) Malik Mustapha / S / Wake Forest

4 (129) Isaac Guerendo / RB / Louisville

4 (135) Jacob Cowing / WR / Arizona

6 (215) Jarrett Kingston / IOL / USC

7 (251) Tatum Bethune / LB / Florida State


Cody Schrader / RB / Missouri

Drake Nugent / IOL / Michigan

Evan Anderson / IDL / FAU


Pearsall was a surprise first round selection but he has great body control, good speed, and very good leaping ability. He can line up in the slot or out wide and may make Brandon Aiyuk expendable. Green lacks desired size but has sticky coverage skills and can handle both size and speed well. He will contribute as a rookie. Puni is an experienced OLT with the athleticism and mindset to be a long term NFL starter at guard. Mustapha gives the Niners an enforcer in the back end with very good run support ability. Guerendo is a big RB with soft hands and fine route running ability. He has an excellent chance of making the roster as RB3 this summer. Cowing is an undersized, and extremely durable, slot receiver who has good hands, toughness, and good route running skill. Kingston has very good size and the versatility to backup both guard and OT spots. Bethune has very good length, agility, and tackling ability. He does not shed blocks well but otherwise looks like he could become a starter a season or two down the line.

The Niners did not make much of a mark in free agency after addressing their needs during the draft. Schrader is a tough, gritty, and productive RB who lacks desired speed and size but runs with urgency. He should secure a practice squad spot this fall. Nugent surprisingly went undrafted despite multiple years of quality play at Stanford and Michigan. He doesn't possess desired measurables but is smart, savvy, disciplined, and effective as both a run and a pass blocker. He'll push for a roster spot. Anderson has a good combination of size and athleticism and fits the mold of what the Niners want in their interior defensive linemen.

Seattle Seahawks


Total Picks - 8


1 (16) Byron Murphy / IDL / Texas

3 (81) Christian Haynes / IOL / UCONN

4 (118) Tyrice Knight / LB / UTEP

4 (121) AJ Barner / TE / Michigan

5 (136) Nehemiah Pritchett / CB / Auburn

6 (179) Sataoa Laumea / OL / Utah

6 (192) DJ James / CB / Auburn

6 (207) Mike Jerrell / OT / Findlay


Taulia Tagovailoa / QB / Maryland

George Holani / RB / Boise State

Hayden Hatten / WR / Idaho

Jack Westover / TE / Washington

Garret Greenfield / OT / South Dakota State

Mike Novitsky / IOL / Kansas

Nelson Ceaser / EDGE / Houston

Carlton Johnson / CB / Fresno State


Murphy, most analyst's #1 ranked IDL, was the second defender off the board and gives the Seahawks a quick and fast interior defender who shoots through gaps and disrupt plays through sheer quickness and athleticism. Haynes, a two-time All-American right guard, is pro-ready and should start before the midpoint of the coming season. Knight is quick, has light feet, and matches up well with TEs in coverage. Barner is a quality all-around TE who is effective as an in-line blocker and has soft hands for the outlet pass. Pritchett is thin but has excellent length and reaction skills and works well in man coverage. Laumea played OT at Utah and has the size, strength, and movement skills to man either guard or OT. He should earn a roster spot this summer. James, like Pritchett, handles man coverage well and is willing in run support. He'll compete with his Auburn teammate for a roster spot with the loser likely making the practice squad. Jerrell is a Division 2 prospect with excellent size. He will need developmental time on the practice squad.

Tagovailoa has a very good arm, is accurate, and has good mobility. He lacks size and he has never elevated the performance of the Terrapins against better competition. However, he offers good upside worth developing. Holani started the 2023 season as the Broncos featured back but injuries and the superb performance of Ashton Jeanty made him a backup. Seattle has a stacked RB room. Holani will attempt to earn a practice squad spot this season. Hatten has very good size, hands, and body control. He is a similar player to Jake Bobo. Hatten should earn a practice squad spot this summer. Westover worked his way into a prominent role in Washington's offense despite lacking both size and athleticism. He is a heady, hard working, and smart player who runs quality routes and has strong hands. He should earn a practice squad spot this summer. Greenfield, SNS' top ranked UDFA available, profiles as a starting OLT with the length and movement skills to be developed. He should push for a roster spot. Novitsky, a transfer from Buffalo, has four years of starting experience and is a smart and aware center who plays with a nasty edge. He should secure a practice squad spot. Ceaser has the desired build for a 4-3 DE. His production has been minimal but he has rare tools to be developed. Johnson is thin but has light feet, loose hips, and quality ball skills to be developed as an eventual starter.
