SNS 2024 NFL Draft Top 100 Rankings - Prospects #26-50


(Jayden Daniels / QB / LSU)


SNS releases our initial 2024 NFL Draft prospect Top 100 rankings, taking a deep dive into prospects earning borderline first round / early second round draft grades in April. It should be noted that these rankings are separate from the positional rankings previously released in the SNS Weekly Scouting Reports since scouting is a continual process throughout the fall, winter, and spring and scouting reports are regularly updated throughout the process. Furthermore, players have yet to declare their draft intentions, postseason all-star bowl invitations have yet to be issued or accepted, and the NFL Scouting Combine have not identified which prospects to invite to Indianapolis (February 26 – March 4). So, with qualifications aside, let’s take look at prospects ranked #26-50!

POSITIONAL BREAKDOWN –

QB (2) – Travis (#31) & Daniels (#35). Travis has steadily improved throughout his time in Tallahassee and offers mobility, toughness, and leadership skills. Daniels has had success at Arizona State and LSU and offers great arm talent and athleticism. NOTE: These rankings were completed prior to Travis’ season-ending leg injury.


RB (3) – Estime (#26), Shipley (#38), & Allen (#46). Estime looks like Marshawn Lynch in his physicality and running style. Shipley has a well-rounded set of skills. Allen is the next in line of quality RBs to be produced by Wisconsin.


WR (2) – Egbuka (#37) & Wilson (#44). Egbuka excels as the #2 WR in Columbus and looks like a long-term NFL starter. Wilson is extremely tall, fast and has a huge catch radius but his hands are questionable.


TE (0) – The TEs in the 2024 NFL Draft will pale in comparison to last year’s class and be more in line with a traditional draft – outside the possible inclusion of the potential generational talent Brock Bowers – regarding the paucity of top end talent available in April.


OT (2) – Paul (#47) & Suamatala (#50). Paul looks like the prototypical NFL OLT. Suamatala is big and powerful and beginning to develop into a quality OT prospect.


IOL (3) – Zinter (#28), Van Pran (#33), & Frazier (#39). Three quality IOL prospects earn grades as second round prospects in April. Zinter is experienced, durable, and reliable. Van Pran & Frazier are the top two centers available in April and both look like long-term NFL starters.


EDGE (2) – Turner (#34) & Trice (#48). Turner has a fantastic closing burst and flashes elite playmaking skill. Trice looks the part and flashes at times but too often disappears and he needs to be more consistent.


IDL (2) – Jenkins (#29) & Orhorhoro (#40). Jenkins, whose father was an All-Pro, has just started to scratch his immense potential. Orhorhoro is a freak athlete who may be a better pro than college player.


LB (2) – Dumas-Johnson (#42) & Eichenberg (#49). JDJ has missed significant time this year but has the frame and athleticism desired for an NFL off the ball LB. Eichenberg is a classic ILB with great instincts and range.


CB (5) – McKinstry (#27), Cypress (#30), King (#41), Sanistril (#43), Washington (#45). There is good depth in the late first to second round in April’s draft at CB. McKinstry has ideal length and playmaking skill. Cypress offers length and versatility to play in any coverage scheme. King has the size and length desired by pressing teams. Sanistril, a former WR, is one of the best slot CBs available in April. Washington has smooth movement skills and plays the ball in the air like a WR.


S (2) – Moore (#32) & Bowman (#36). Moore has the size to match up with TEs and the agility to handle WRs out of the slot. Bowman is both a ball hawk and a big hitter who relishes contact and the physical aspects of the game.

 

Declared for the 2024 NFL Draft

It’s that time of year where players are beginning to announce their intentions for 2024 and the first two potential Top 75 prospects have made their intentions clear. Illinois IDL prospects Jer’Zhan “Johnny” Newton and Keith Randolph have declared for next April’s draft. Both prospects should be expected to play in either the Shrine All-Star game or the Senior Bowl in January and should be invited to participate at the NFL Scouting Combine at the end of February.
