NFL Team Logo for Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars: Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama Image for ALA

The Jaguars have a big weakness at cornerback. They were terrible versus the pass last year, so an upgrade at the position would obviously go a long way in fixing the problem.

Terrion Arnold is a quick and athletic cornerback with average height.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Brian Thomas Jr., WR – Receiver is in play for the Jaguars, who lost Calvin Ridley this offseason.

2. Quinyon Mitchell – Another cornerback possibility for Jacksonville.

If you haven’t visited the site in a while, you may have noticed the new look. Yes, after nearly two decades, we’ve finally re-designed our site to be more modern. This was not done on a whim, but rather out of necessity because of what occurred during the 2023 NFL Draft. Our site crashed during the entire first day of the draft, which was disastrous for our revenue stream because we make more money during the draft than any other time. The site crashed because a line of code conflicted with the old format of the site, so we had to transition to this new look.

Because we lost so much money during the draft, I want to point out that you can really help support the site by paying for the ad-free version of it at the top. It’s $7.99 per month, but you’ll get a super-fast site with no ads. If you don’t want to pay, please spread the word about the site through word of mouth. That would also be a big help!

Also, if you’d like to support the site, check out my book! It’s available on Amazon, and it’s called A Safety and a Field Goal.

You can buy it here. It has some NFL Draft-related topics, so like I said, if you want to support the site, this is a great way to do it!

NFL Team Logo for Bengals Cincinnati Bengals: Amarius Mims, OT, Georgia Image for UGA

The Bengals continue to have offensive line issues. Jonah Williams has left for the Cardinals and will need to be replaced.

Amarius Mims has gotten lots of positive feedback from the scouting community. He has a tremendous skill set and lots of upside.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. J.C. Latham, OT – The No. 1 tackle option for the Bengals.

2. Byron Murphy or Johnny Newton, DT – If all the tackle options are off the board, Cincinnati will be looking at a defensive tackle.

Pick change; previously J.C. Latham, OT

NFL Team Logo for Rams Los Angeles Rams: Byron Murphy II, DT, Texas Image for Tex

Aaron Donald has retired, which is a bummer because the Rams had a great chance to make a Super Bowl run. Donald will obviously need to be replaced.

Byron Murphy has been impressive as both a run defender and a pass rusher. The only negative is that he lacks length.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Dallas Turner or Jared Verse, DE – The Rams could use an edge rusher, and one of these two players could be available.

2. Brian Thomas Jr., WR – This may seem odd, given that the Rams have Cooper Kupp and Pucua Nacua. However, Kupp doesn’t seem like he has much time remaining.

NFL Team Logo for Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers: Graham Barton, G/OT, Duke Image for Duke

The Steelers signed Mason Cole recently, but he turned out to be a bust. Cole was recently cut. Pittsburgh will be looking for a new center this offseason.

Graham Barton is a very nasty run blocker. He may move to guard in the NFL, but he can also play center.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Jackson Powers-Johnson or Talies Fuaga, OT/G – Other offensive line options for a team that can’t block very well.

2. Brian Thomas Jr., WR – There are rumors circulating that the Steelers love Thomas, though they didn’t host him for a top-30 visit. Check out the 2024 NFL Draft Prospect Visits Tracker here.

NFL Team Logo for Dolphins Miami Dolphins: Dallas Turner, OLB, Alabama Image for ALA

The Dolphins lost plenty of edge-rushing talent this offseason. Meanwhile, Christian Wilkins departed for Las Vegas. They’ll need to find someone else who can hound Josh Allen and Aaron Rodgers.

Dallas Turner is a dynamic pass-rushing threat with immense upside who has drawn comparisons to Brian Burns. However, some teams have flagged him medically, so he could be in for a draft-day slide.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Byron Murphy or Johnny Newton, DT – The Dolphins lost Wilkins, so they need to find a new defensive tackle.

2. Jared Verse, DE – Miami also lost edge rushers to free agency. Anyone on the offensive or defensive line makes sense for the Dolphins.

Pick change; previously Johnny Newton, DT

NFL Team Logo for Eagles Philadelphia Eagles: Talies Fuaga, OT/G, Oregon State

The Eagles always draft with long-term plans in mind, rather than focusing more on just the season ahead. With that in mind, a tackle makes sense at this pick because Lane Johnson turns 34 soon. He could regress or declare for retirement any year, so the Eagles may want to be prepared. I could see Philadelphia moving up for this prospect, perhaps all the way up to No. 12.

Talies Fuaga may have to move to guard in the NFL, but he projects as someone who can play right tackle and guard.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Quinyon Mitchell, Kool-Aid McKinstry or Nate Wiggins, CB – The Eagles had a huge problem stopping the pass last year. They desperately need cornerback help.

2. Amarius Mims, Troy Fautanu or Tyler Guyton, OT – Other offensive linemen who make sense for the Eagles. Both of these players took top-30 visits in Philadelphia.

NFL Team Logo for Cardinals Arizona Cardinals: Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona Image for Ari

Arizona has some offensive line issues that must be addressed. Kyler Murray has never played an entire season.

Jordan Morgan has superb length, size, strength, and quickness.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Johnny Newton or Darius Robinson, DT – The Cardinals could opt for a defensive tackle with this pick. So could the Vikings if they still own this selection.

2. Quinyon Mitchell, Kool-Aid McKinstry or Nate Wiggins, CB – Arizona hasn’t been able to stop the pass in recent years because of poor cornerback play.

NFL Team Logo for Cowboys Dallas Cowboys: Troy Fautanu, G/OT, Washington Image for Wash

Dak Prescott needs more help. The Cowboys could stand to add a better No. 2 receiver to pair with CeeDee Lamb. They also need a new left tackle in the wake of Tyron Smith’s departure.

Troy Fautanu may have to move to guard because of length limitations.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Tyler Guyton or Graham Barton, OL – Other offensive line options for a team that has multiple holes up front.

2. Brian Thomas Jr., WR – The Cowboys don’t have a No. 2 receiver at the moment.

NFL Team Logo for Packers Green Bay Packers: Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma Image for OU

The Packers must protect “No Cookie” Jordan Love. With David Bakhtiari gone, Green Bay will need to obtain a talented blocker.

Tyler Guyton is a massive tackle with great athelticism for someone his size.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Cooper DeJean, S/CB – DeJean was the pick here for a while, as the Packers could opt to find their replacement for Rasul Douglas.

2. Byron Murphy, DT – I could see the Packers trading up for a stud defensive lineman.

NFL Team Logo for Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama Image for ALA

Cornerback was a big problem for the Buccaneers last year, and now it’ll be even worse with Carlton Davis gone.

Kool-Aid McKinstry was a rare freshman starter for Nick Saban. He has the size and athleticism to be an elite cornerback.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Jackson Powers-Johnson, C – The Buccaneers have a weak interior offensive line that must be upgraded.

2. Chop Robinson, DE – The Buccaneers will need to replace Shaq Barrett, who was released recently.

Pick change; previously Jackson Powers-Johnson, C/G

NFL Team Logo for Cardinals Arizona Cardinals: Darius Robinson, DT, Missouri Image for Mizz

The Cardinals need multiple defensive linemen to replenish all the talent they’ve lost recently.

Darius Robinson is versatile enough to play in the 3-4 or 4-3. He was an effective pass rusher at Missouri.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Jordan Morgan or Graham Barton, OL – This could be where the Cardinals find their offensive line help for Kyler Murray.

2. Brian Thomas Jr., WR – If the Cardinals whiff on the top three receivers, they may consider the position with this pick.

NFL Team Logo for Bills Buffalo Bills: Brian Thomas Jr., WR, LSU Image for LSU

Buffalo sorely needed a second receiver because Gabe Davis just wasn’t cutting it most weeks. Davis is now gone, and so is Stefon Diggs.

Brian Thomas Jr. is a huge receiver with great athleticism and upside.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Trade Up – Charlie Campbell reported that the Bills are attempting to trade up for a receiver.

2. Chop Robinson or Jared Verse, DE – The Bills may deem one of these defensive ends too good to pass up if they’re available at No. 28.

NFL Team Logo for Lions Detroit Lions: Johnny Newton, DT, Illinois Image for ILL

The Lions probably don’t believe that Johnny Newton could fall to them, but it’s possible. If so, they’ll be willing to add a talented defensive lineman to their front seven.

Johnny Newton lacks size and length, but he’s a great disruptor in the interior.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB – Cam Sutton’s arrest means that the Lions must address cornerback early in the draft.

2. Jackson Powers-Johnson, C/G – Frank Ragnow has dealt with too many injuries.

Pick change; previously Jackson Powers-Johnson, C/G

NFL Team Logo for Ravens Baltimore Ravens: Nate Wiggins, CB, Clemson Image for Clem

After mocking a tackle to the Ravens for quite some time, I’ve changed my mind and now believe that Baltimore will take a cornerback, given the huge need at the position.

Nate Wiggins is a tall cornerback with plus athleticism and quickness.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Tyler Guyton or Jordan Morgan, OT – A talented tackle could fall to the Ravens.

2. Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB – The other cornerback option.

Pick change; previously Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB

NFL Team Logo for 49ers San Francisco 49ers: Chop Robinson, OLB/DE, Penn State Image for PSU

The 49ers love adding talent to the defensive line. They lost Arik Armstead and Chase Young, so they may feel the need to continue to address this part of their roster.

Chop Robinson is a productive player, but has some size limitations.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Dallas Turner or Jared Verse, DE – John Lynch loves addressing the defensive line with first-round picks.

2. Jordan Morgan or Kingsley Suamataia, OT – Lynch could also bolster the trenches on the other side of the ball with there being a weakness up front.

Pick change; previously Johnny Newton, DT

NFL Team Logo for Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs: Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU Image for BYU

The Chiefs need receiving help, but they also have a huge hole at left tackle. Patrick Mahomes’ blind-side protection must improve.

Kingsley Suamataia has amazing athleticism for a tackle of his size.

*** OTHER 2024 NFL DRAFT POSSIBILITIES: ***

1. Jordan Morgan or Patrick Paul, OT – Other offensive line options for a team that can’t block very well on the edge.

2. Brian Thomas Jr., Keon Coleman or Xavier Legette, WR – The Chiefs could trade up for Thomas or use this pick on one of the other receivers.
