(Olumuyiwa Fashanu / OT / Penn State)

This week, SNS continues the roll out the 2024 NFL Draft Prospect Rankings. The 2024 NFL Draft could have several potential franchise QBs, quite a few stud WRs, a deep group of OTs, and a quality group of DTs. SNS is rolling out the first set of rankings that will be updated on a regular basis through the draft in April. So, let’s take a look at the Top 10 Offensive Prospect Position Rankings – Offensive Tackles & IOL!

Offensive Tackles

Ideal size, height, and length for a starting OLT. Moves and kick slides easily to neutralize speed. Very strong – difficult to bull rush. Plays with great natural knee bend. Smooth and athletic. Uses length well to extend and control the defender. Powerful punch but needs to be more consistent in placement.

2. Joe Alt / Notre Dame

Father is former NFL Pro Bowl OT Jon Alt. Very good size with long arms and a strong upper body. Smart and aware. Seals the outside run with size, positioning, and strength. Athletic to switch off blocks, engage, and open run lanes via his adjustments. Good arm extension – locks out and the defender is typically neutralized. Plays with great leverage. Very difficult to bull rush. Athletic enough to get to the second level. Pulls and can be very effective in that role. Lined up almost exclusively across from OSU’s Edge JT Tuimoloau and effectively neutralized him throughout the game.

3. Kelvin Banks / Texas

Excellent size and length with grapevines for arms. Moves fluidly and can mirror speed on the edge. Plays with a wide base and natural knee bend. Strong – when he latches on, it is typically over. Strong hands and control the defender with power and arm extension.

4. Jordan Morgan / Arizona

Excellent size, height, and length with prototypical measureables for OLT. Natural knee bender who plays with outstanding leverage. Easy kick slide and handles speed well. Excellent mirror and reaction skills.

5. Kingsley Suamatala / BYU

Extremely big with a huge frame. Huge wingspan. Great athlete who covers ground long pulling in the run game. Impressive movement skills. Very easy kick slide. When he extends arms and places his hands on the defender, the defender is typically neutralized. Very good grip strength. Balanced and adjusts to movement well.

6. Patrick Paul / Houston

Very good size, frame, girth, and wingspan – has grapevines for arms. Excellent bend and plays with outstanding leverage and base. Effective pulling and gets good fits at the second level. Mirror and slides and adjusts to speed and movement well.

7. Walter Rouse / Oklahoma

Ideal size and length for a blindside OT. Naturally athletic and moves with fluidity. Easy kick slide and mirrors extremely well. Displays quick twitch at the snap and often wins because of it. Long arms used well in punching, resetting, and striking again. Could improve shock in his hands. Doesn’t get much movement in the run game and needs to improve his power and strength.

Very good size with good length. Natural knee bender. Very good balance. Athletic and has a smooth kick slide. Quick enough to lead on screens and sweeps on the second level. Effectively throws punches then replaces them and fires again. Good arm extension.

9. Graham Barton / Duke

Prototypical size and build for an OT with decent arm length. Athletic. Mirror and slides well – smooth and easy. May lack some desired strength but is technically solid and his positioning and adjustments are text book.

10. Joshua Gray / Oregon State

Prototypical size and length – looks the part. Plays on the balls of his feet and has a smooth kick slide. Natural knee bender which helps him negate bull rushes. Athletic enough to project to OLT in the NFL. Needs to work on arm extension and not allow the edge to get into his body. Punch lacks pop and he needs work on grip strength and placement.
