Top 10 prospects in 2024 NFL Draft

With the 2024 NFL Draft just weeks away, attention is turning to the top players available.

The 2024 class has a promising group of quarterbacks and even more high-end prospects at wide receiver and tackle, making it one of the best collections of offensive talent we’ve seen in a long time.

Let’s take a look at the top ten players on offer this year:

10. Dallas Turner

A freaky athlete, Turner led the SEC in sacks in 2023 and is the premier edge rusher available in this year’s draft. He may lack in ideal size measurements, but the Alabama standout is so physical at the point of attack and is a strong run defender.

A pivotal tool on the stellar Alabama defense for the last three years, Turner is ready to make an immediate impact at the next level.

9. Olu Fashanu

Fashanu has ideal size, length and strength for the left tackle position, and has plenty of time to develop and perfect his craft. Strong hands to stab and steer defenders, the former Penn State player is an incredibly effective pass protector – he needs to improve his consistency in the run game, but is very effective in shielding and staying attached, which he can build upon as a pro.

Fashanu can very easily be a top-10 selection in the 2024 NFL Draft.

8. Joe Alt

Alt is an elite tackle prospect, having impressed in starting 33 games for Notre Dame. At 6-foot-8, he’s the ideal size for an offensive tackle, and at just 21, has plenty of time to develop.

In his career so far at left tackle, he has allowed just 16 total pressures in more than 1,000 pass-block snaps. He’ll be any quarterback’s dream for protection for years to come.

7. Rome Odunze

The elite wide receiver group is that good, it pains me to put Odunze as the third best wideout in this class. But, as a big, athletic wideout with exceptional hands and development traits, Odunze could end being the pick of the bunch in a few years time.

An energetic wideout, Odunze will make an immediate impact for the team who drafts him in April.

6. Malik Nabers

Nabers would have been the WR1 in 2023, and the gap between him and Marvin Harrison Jr. isn’t as big as it has been suggested. He can win win underneath, has electric pace and will continue to ascend as he develops his finishing skills and route discipline.

A dynamic and high IQ player, Nabers will be making NFL defenders look silly when he enters the league.

5. Brock Bowers

A difference maker across the park, Brock Bowers is coming into the NFL as one of the best tight end prospects in history.

He’s not huge, and blocking certainly isn’t his strongest point, but he will be a nightmare matchup for opposition defenses. Bowers is a special, special player. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him line up as a wide receiver at some point!

4. Jayden Daniels

A name on rise after a Heisman Trophy winning year in 2023, Jayden Daniels is going to be such an explosive quarterback in the NFL. He was consistent enough with big plays a plenty for the majority months of the last college regular season that quarterback-needy teams will have him high on their boards.

He’ll need to bulk and protect himself at the next level, but Daniels can go an awful long way in this league.

3. Drake Maye

Drake Maye has already proved that he can make any throw that’s asked of him. A cannon of an arm and good feet, Maye has all the talent tools you want to bet on as a franchise QB.

The North Carolina quarterback will need time to adjust and develop in the NFL, particularly to help his decision-making, but make no mistake, Maye will end up being a top-tier starter as a pro.

2. Marvin Harrison Jr.

A name many of us will be familiar with, Marvin Harrison Jr. will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of his dad, with commentators even tipping him to emulate that success.

Harrison Snr was a destructive receiver for the Colts in his day, but imagine if he was four inches taller and 20 pounds heavier. That’s exactly the prospect we’re dealing with in his son, a genuine WR1 player already, with some of the best athletic ability around, reliable hands, great speed and elite body control.

1. Caleb Williams

Williams has been the face of college football for the past few years, and is has easily been one of the top playmakers during his time at USC. He is always a threat, with exceptional skills through his arms and legs, and that translates incredibly well into today’s NFL.

Considered the best prospect out of college since Trevor Lawrence, it’s almost a banker that Williams will be drafted first overall by the Chicago Bears in a few weeks time.
