Last update: Friday, April 26, 2024.

This is a 2024 NFL Mock Re-Draft of Rounds 2 and 3 for Friday evening’s NFL Draft coverage. With all of the trades that will go down, I don’t expect to get many of these right, but it’s still fun to speculate where the top prospects will go on Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Draft.

team img Carolina Panthers: Ja’Tavion Sanders, TE, Texas

The Panthers could use more talent at tight end.

Sanders notched 45 receptions in 2023 for 682 yards and two touchdowns. He emerged as a dangerous receiving weapon in 2022, showing mismatch speed and athleticism. In 2022, Sanders totaled 613 yards and five touchdowns over 54 receptions. Sanders (6-4, 243) is a smooth receiver in the middle of the field with dangerous run-after-the-catch skills. He needs to improve as a blocker for the NFL, but he would be a good F – movement – tight end.

team img Arizona Cardinals: Jarvis Brownlee Jr., CB, Louisville

The Cardinals could use additional cornerback options.

A number of team sources like Brownlee as a third-round sleeper who could turn into a nice value pick. Brownlee (5-10, 194) is a physical cornerback and plays with a nasty demeanor. Teams view him as a potential outside or nickel corner with the upside to develop into a starter. In 2023, Brownlee totaled 28 tackles, an interception and five passes broken up. In 2022, he recorded 66 tackles, two interceptions and 12 passes defended. Brownlee looks likely to go in Round 3 of the 2024 NFL Draft and should not slip out of the fourth round.

team img Washington Commanders: Johnny Dixon, CB, Penn State

The Commanders could use more cornerback competition and depth.

Back in 2022, Joey Porter Jr. had an underwhelming season that caused him to slide from being a consensus first-rounder to a second-day pick in the draft. Across from Porter, Kalen King had a tremendous 2022 season to establish himself as a top corner prospect for the 2024 NFL Draft. However, King really struggled in 2023, giving up a lot of plays, while his teammate Dixon (6-0, 191) has impressed NFL evaluators. Dixon is gritty, quick, instinctive, and can run the route to prevent separation. In 2023, he put up 26 tackles, 4.5 sacks, an interception and three passes broken up. In 2022, he recorded 23 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and eight passes defended.

team img New England Patriots: Blake Fisher, OT, Notre Dame

The Patriots grab more offensive line talent.

The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Fisher was the starting right tackle at Notre Dame and turned in a strong 2023 season. He is a quick and athletic right tackle who probably would have started at left tackle at other schools. Fisher had a solid workout at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine. He could start out as a swing tackle who develops into a starting role.

team img Los Angeles Chargers: Blake Corum, RB, Michigan

The Chargers could use a young back to replace Austin Ekeler.

Corum averaged 4.8 yards per carry in 2023 on his way to 1,245 yards and 27 touchdowns. He had 16 receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown as well. The 5-foot-8, 210-pounder was a tough back and point producer for the Wolverines in 2022 before a knee injury knocked him out late in the season. That year, he averaged 5.9 yards per carry for 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns. He also recorded five receptions for 73 yards. As a downhill runner, Corum shows good strength to break tackles alongside contact balance and an ability to pick up yards after contact. He could be a physical starting running back in the NFL.

team img New York Giants: Isaiah Adams, OT, Illinois

The Giants add an offensive lineman who can compete immediately at guard, but also offers depth to kick outside to tackle.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Adams was a starter at left guard and right tackle over the past few seasons for the Illini. During his senior campaign, Adams primarily played at right tackle. For the NFL, he could be a valuable game-day backup at guard and tackle while possessing the upside to possibly develop into being a starter at either position.

team img Arizona Cardinals: Tommy Eichenberg, LB, Ohio State

The Cardinals could use more young talent at linebacker.

In 2023, Eichenberg totaled 80 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. He broke out in 2022, recording 120 tackles, 2.5 sacks, one interception and three passes broken up. Eichenberg is a solid run defender with a strong build. The 6-foot-2, 239-pounder has enough pass-coverage skills to develop into a possible starter in the NFL.

team img New York Jets: Tez Walker, WR, North Carolina

The Jets add some wide receiver talent for Aaron Rodgers.

Walker had an absurd suspension to start the 2023 season, but once he returned to the field, he was a playmaker for the Tar Heels. Over eight games, Walker recorded 41 catches for 699 yards and seven touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 197-pounder is extremely fast and has good size alongside serious big-play ability. However, some sources said Walker graded out as a backup. He is a bit of a love/hate prospect with scouts because he has a lot of dropped passes. That issue was evident during the Senior Bowl practices, where he dropped a number of balls.

team img Dallas Cowboys: Nehemiah Pritchett, CB, Auburn

The Cowboys add more cornerback depth.

A number of team sources like Pritchett as a third- or fourth-round sleeper who could turn into a nice value pick. In 2023, he had 22 tackles, an interception and three breakups. During 2022, he recorded 37 tackles and eight passes broken up. The 6-foot, 190-pounder has good size and quickness. He can play zone or man coverage while being a nice corner for taking on taller, longer receivers. Fast receivers give Pritchett some issues, and he will need to be coached on that for that for the NFL. Pritchett could begim his career as a backup who helps on special teams with the potential to develop into being a starter.

team img Atlanta Falcons: Ruke Orhorhoro, DT, Clemson

The Falcons add some interior defensive line depth.

The 6-foot-4, 295-pound Orhorhoro has the ability to contribute in both phases, as he is a tough run defender who shows some ability to get after the quarterback. Orhorhoro possesses the strength to get off blocks, and he displays the speed to make plays out of his gap. In 2023, Orhorhoro recorded 25 tackles, five sacks and a pass batted. He totaled 23 tackles, five passes batted and four sacks in 2022. Orhorhoro has the potential to become a three-down starter in the NFL and has upside to develop.

team img Chicago Bears: Bralen Trice, DE, Washington

Chicago grabs an edge rusher to go across from Montez Sweat.

Trice recorded 49 tackles and seven sacks in 2023. Following a few years of development, he broke out in 2022 with nine sacks, 12 tackles for a loss and 38 tackles. The 6-foot-4, 267-pounder has speed off the edge alongside active hands and a nose for the quarterback. After gaining some additional playing experience, Trice could be even better because he has a good skill set and upside to develop.

team img Denver Broncos: Max Melton, CB, Rutgers

The Broncos could consider adding more cornerback talent go with Patrick Surtain.

In 2023, Melton recorded 32 tackles, three interceptions and six passes broken up. He went under the radar in 2022 due to playing on a bad Rutgers team that failed to qualify for a bowl game. He totaled 33 tackles, two interceptions and nine passes broken up on the year. While Max Melton had not received a lot of media attention, he caught fire in the scouting community for the 2023 NFL Draft. Some evaluators said they thought Melton could have been one of the top cornerback prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft and had a shot at being the first one off the board. However, Melton went back to school.

Melton was listed at 6-foot, 190 pounds, but pro sources said he might be more like 5-foot-11, 188 pounds. He then measured in at the combine at 5-foot-11, 187 pounds. Those sources stated Melton has excellent speed and is super fast at shutting down the deep part of the field. Receivers can’t outrun him, and he is a superb athlete who can run the routes to prevent separation. Melton is a tough competitor who has a lot of upside.

team img Las Vegas Raiders: Kiran Amegadjie, OT, Yale

The Raiders grab more offensive tackle talent and competition.

Amegadjie (6-5, 323) impressed area scouts with his play at Yale. Along with doing well on the field, Amegadjie has an NFL body with height, weight, and long arms – 36.13 inches. Amegadjie has a good skill set to work with, but he is a developmental project who needs work on his technique, footwork and instincts.

team img Washington Commanders: Jermaine Burton, WR, Alabama

Washington lost Curtis Samuel in free agency. Here’s a third receiver for Jayden Daniels.

The 6-foot, 200-pound Burton has a superb skill set, as he is extremely fast and a tremendous separator. To go along with quality size and having great speed, Burton is a terrific route-runner, which leads to him consistently torching coverage. In 2023, Burton recorded 39 catches for 798 yards and eight touchdowns. In 2022, he totaled 40 receptions for 677 yards and seven touchdowns. While Burton has first-round ability, his character issues are massive and are going to be a death blow for some teams. His character problems were part of his background at Georgia, and sources say Burton was in the dog house at both Georgia and Alabama. That led to loss of playing time, and the character issues played a part in him not executing on the field with frequent missed assignments.

team img Atlanta Falcons: DeWayne Carter, DT, Duke

The Falcons could use more defensive tackle talent.

Carter (6-3, 305) was tough player for the Blue Devils in 2023. He was a solid run defender, making 39 tackles while recording one sack. Carter showed more pass-rush production in previous seasons. In 2022, he picked up 5.5 sacks. He recorded 4.5 sacks in 2021. Carter also totaled seven forced fumbles over that timespan. He is a sleeper who could be a nice value pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

team img Cincinnati Bengals: Xavier Thomas, DE, Clemson

The Bengals grab some edge-rush depth.

Thomas is an enigma who is fast and athletic off the edge. In 2023, he notched 25 tackles and three sacks. Thomas recorded 3.5 sacks per year in both 2021 and 2020. With his speed and athleticism, it doesn’t make sense as to why Thomas did not produce more at the college level. The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder is undersized and could be a designated pass rusher as a pro, but he has talent and upside to develop. Off-the-field concerns have hurt Thomas with NFL teams.

team img Seattle Seahawks: Layden Robinson, G, Texas A&M

The Seahawks add more offensive line talent with a power run blocker.

Team sources said they were impressed with the play of Robinson in 2023. They stated they feel Robinson (6-4, 315) looks like a potential starting right guard for the NFL. They noted that while he has some athletic limitations, he is strong and a people mover at the point of attack. Robinson is a tough, nasty, and powerful right guard for the next level. He could be limited on some of the wide zone-run plays in the NFL because he lacks foot quickness and overall athletic ability. Even though he was improved in 2023, Robinson is hurt by his 2022 tape being ugly in pass protection at times. Still, he has a violent play style and demeanor. Robinson could be a sleeper value pick as a second-day or mid-round prospect for the 2024 NFL Draft.

team img Indianapolis Colts: Jaheim Bell, TE, Florida State

The Colts grab more receiving tight end talent for Anthony Richardson.

The South Carolina transfer played well for Florida State in 2023 with 39 receptions for 503 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a rushing touchdown. In 2022 (25-231-2) and 2021 (30-497-5), Bell was a solid contributor for the Gamecocks. Bell is a physical player who is dangerous with the ball in his hands. He runs well after the catch, and has the quickness, route-running and athleticism to get open as a movement tight end in the NFL.

team img Los Angeles Rams: Chau Smith-Wade, CB, Washington State

Tre’Davious White is just a veteran stop-gap who also has dealt with a lot of injuries. The Rams could use more cornerback youth.

Smith-Wade impressed NFL team sources with his coverage ability in 2023. While being a little undersized could push Smith-Wade (5-10, 184) down somewhat, he can really cover, and some evaluators think he could be a really good value pick from the 2024 NFL Draft. In 2023, Smith-Wade totaled 43 tackles, two interceptions and six passes defended. He recorded 43 tackles, two interception, 10 passes batted away and three forced fumbles in 2022.

team img Pittsburgh Steelers: Cole Bishop, S, Utah

The Steelers could use a starting strong safety, and Bishop is a great scheme for them.

Bishop totaled 60 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and three passes defended in 2023. He ran well at the combine and had a strong week of practice at the Senior Bowl. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound Bishop is a well-rounded player who can help in coverage and defend the run. In 2022, he collected 83 tackles, 1.5 sacks, an interception and three pass breakups. Bishop could be a safe pick on Day 2 to turn into a quality starter.

team img Cleveland Browns: Jonah Eliss, DE, Utah

The Browns grab some edge-rush depth.

Elliss was one of the most dangerous pass rushers in college football in 2023, making a big impact for the Utes. He recorded 12 sacks, 37 tackles and a forced fumble on the year, plus produced steady pressure on the quarterback. Elliss (6-2, 246) is undersized for edge rusher in the NFL given his lack of height and length. However, Elliss plays low to dip under blockers while also having some functional strength. He will have to play some linebacker in the base defense and move to edge rusher in the sub package as a pro.

team img Houston Texans: Roger Rosengarten, OT, Washington

The Texans pick up another offensive line option.

Rosengarten was a solid blind-side protector for Michael Penix Jr. over the past two seasons. While Rosengarten (6-5, 308) has decent athleticism and quickness, he has a serious lack of play strength and a weak anchor. Rosengarten is going to need to improve his strength, power and anchor to become an effective starter in the NFL. His best fit would come in a zone-blocking scheme.

team img Dallas Cowboys: Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas

The Cowboys need more running back talent.

In 2023, Brooks was a tough runner for the Longhorns, averaging 6.1 yards per carry for 1,139 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also notched 25 receptions for 286 yards and one touchdown. The 6-foot, 207-pounder is a strong back who has quickness and some athleticism.

team img Green Bay Packers: Trevin Wallace, OLB, Kentucky

The Packers go after another linebacker.

Wallace totaled 80 tackles, 5.5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 2023. He was a solid defender for Kentucky, showing a good skill set with size, speed and athleticism. Wallace (6-1, 237) has upside to develop for the NFL because he has been known to be an athletic freak with size and speed. In 2022, Wallace recorded 54 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two interceptions.

team img Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike Sainristil, CB, Michigan

The Bucs take some slot corner depth.

Sainristil came up with a lot of clutch plays during the 2023 season to help Michigan win a National Championship. On the year, Sainristil totaled 44 tackles, six interceptions, two forced fumbles, two sacks and six passes batted. It was a huge season with a lot of clutch plays. In 2022, he totaled 58 tackles, an interception, seven passes broken up and an interception. Sainristil has good instincts and is a willing tackler. At the next level, he would fit best as a slot corner.

team img Arizona Cardinals: Spencer Rattler, QB, South Carolina

The Cardinals could use more backup quarterback talent.

Rattler completed 69 percent of his passes in 2023 for 3,186 yards, 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He recorded four rushing touchdowns as well. Despite both games being losses, Rattler played well against North Carolina and Georgia. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder flashed some big-time ability in 2022 while completing 66 percent of his passes for 3,026 yards, 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also rushed for three touchdowns.

Team sources have said they see Rattler as a high-upside pick. They shared they like his big-time arm talent, instincts, athleticism, and irrational confidence. They also said they loved Rattler’s ability to ad lib and make plays off script. The big knock on Rattler is his erratic decision-making, but he made huge improvements in that regard while at South Carolina. As a redshirt freshman starter in 2020 at Oklahoma, Rattler completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,031 yards, 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions. In 2021, he did not play as well for the Sooners and was replaced by Caleb Williams.

team img Green Bay Packers: Zak Zinter, G, Michigan

The Packers take more offensive line competition.

Zinter (6-6, 322) was a very good starting right guard for Michigan in 2023. He was a steady pass protector and a key contributor as a run blocker. In the regular-season finale against Ohio State, Zinter suffered a broken tibia and a broken fibula. He then had surgery to repair the breaks. Zinter broke into the starting lineup at right guard and locked down the position over his remaining time with the Wolverines. He has starting potential for the NFL.

team img Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Trey Benson, RB, Florida State

The Bucs add a runner to pair with Rachaad White.

Benson (6-1, 223) is a big back who is a strong downhill runner with the strength to end his rushes well. He averaged 5.8 yards per carry in 2023 for 905 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also had 20 catches for 227 yards and a touchdown. In 2022, Benson became the starting running back and had a quality debut, averaging 6.4 yards per carry for 990 yards and nine touchdowns. He notched 13 receptions for 144 yards as well. Benson boosted his draft stock with an excellent combine performance.

team img Baltimore Ravens: Jordan Jefferson, DT, LSU

Baltimore could use more young defensive line talent.

The big and strong nose tackle Jefferson (6-4, 317) impressed team evaluators with his play in 2023. The senior from Navarre, Florida was a tough run defender in the middle of the defensive line for the Tigers. He totaled 36 tackles, 2.5 sacks and pass defended in 2023. As junior, he recorded three sacks and 31 tackles. Jefferson has good size for the NFL and could be a physical interior defender as a pro.

team img San Francisco 49ers: Malachi Corley, WR, Western Kentucky

The 49ers could be moving on from Brandon Aiyuk and/or Deebo Samuel before long. Thus, they could use multiple receivers from the loaded wide receiver class of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Over the past three seasons, Corley was a dangerous playmaker for Western Kentucky. He broke out in 2021 when he had 73 receptions for 691 yards and seven touchdowns. In 2022 as a junior, he had his best season with 101 catches for 1,293 yards with 11 touchdowns. In his senior year, Corley had 79 catches for 984 yards with 11 scores. The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Corley has a burst in the open field and is a dangerous run-after-the-catch receiver with a thick build that allows him to plow through tackles. He has a running back-like build and would be a good fit in a West Coast offense.

team img Buffalo Bills: Calen Bullock, S, USC

The Bills take a defensive back who could play safety or be moved to corner.

Bullock totaled 61 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes broken up in 2023. He broke out for the Trojans in 2022, recording 48 tackles, five interceptions and six passes defended. The sophomore showed instincts and a knack for making some splash plays in the clutch. As a freshman, he totaled 39 tackles, two interceptions and three passes defended while playing cornerback. Bullock (6-3, 180) is a tall, long, skinny defender with ball skills. For the NFL, he should maybe move to corner, similar to the transition L’Jarius Sneed made. Sneed was a skinny college safety with coverage skills who transitioned well to cornerback. Bullock could be a candidate to do that as well because he is fast, long and athletic but could get beat up at the safety position.

team img Jacksonville Jaguars: Johnny Wilson, WR, Florida State

The Jaguars add another big receiver for Trevor Lawrence.

Wilson displayed mismatch size and big-play ability in 2022, hauling in 897 yards and five touchdowns on only 43 receptions – a 20.9-yard average. In 2023, he recorded 41 receptions for 617 yards and two touchdowns. The 6-foot-7, 235-pounder presents an obvious size disparity, but he runs and moves well for a receiver that big. Wilson is able to sink his weight and get in and out of breaks extremely well for his size. However, Wilson has a problem with dropped passes, and that is especially problematic for the role that big receivers are expected to play.

team img Cincinnati Bengals: T’Vondre Sweat, DT, Texas

The Bengals grab a replacement for D.J. Reader.

Sweat is a massive nose tackle who is a beast at the point of attack in the ground game. The 6-foot-4, 340-pounder flashed in 2022 while registering 29 tackles, four passes broken up. He recorded 22 stops total in each of the two seasons before. In 2023, he totaled 45 tackles, two sacks and five passes broken up. Sweat is a big, powerful, strong prospect who can cause disruption at the point of attack and also generate a push in the pass rush. Off the field, team sources say Sweat is a good kid who also has some issues with lethargy and likes to party. He has a big-time skill set and potential to develop.

team img Pittsburgh Steelers: Jacob Cowing, WR, Arizona

The Steelers could use more wide receiver talent.

Cowing totaled 90 catches for 848 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2023. He is a quick, shifty slot receiver who is a dangerous route-runner and capable of producing yards after the catch. Cowing (5-8, 168) is undersized for the NFL, but he made a lot of big plays in college. In 2022, Cowing hauled in 85 catches for 1,034 yards and seven touchdowns. He had 69 receptions in 2021 for 1,354 yards with seven touchdowns.

team img Los Angeles Rams: Marist Liufau, LB, Notre Dame

The Rams take some linebacker and edge-rush talent.

The 6-foot-2, 239-pound Liufau impressed team sources in 2023, recording 44 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. As a first-year starter in 2022, he collected 51 tackles, an interception, .5 sacks and a pass defended. Liufau missed the 2021 season with an injury. Pro evaluators said they love how Liufau is extremely fast and athletic. They labelled his instincts as just okay, and noted he is very violent and can play stacked or rush the quarterback.

team img Washington Commanders: Justin Eboigbe, DT, Alabama

Washington adds some more defensive line competition.

Eboigbe totaled 63 tackles, pass batted and seven sacks in 2023. Team sources say Eboigbe (6-5, 292) has power, but is limited athletically. He is a strong, and his power can be seen in the ground game, but he lacks explosion and feel as a rusher. Eboigbe shows decent speed and isn’t a bad athlete. Sources said they feel he could be a backup defensive end who takes snaps as a three-technique.
