2024 NFL Draft Stock Up
Isaiah Adams, OT, Illinois
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, Adams could be a valuable game-day backup at guard and tackle who possesses the upside to possibly develop into being a starter.
Brandon Coleman, OT, TCU
Coleman was the starting left tackle for the Horned Frogs over the past two seasons. As an underclassman, Coleman started at guard. He could start out as a backup at guard and tackle in the NFL and may have the potential to grow into a starting role.
Christian Jones, OT, Texas
Jones was a mainstay on the Longhorns offensive line over the past four seasons. He broke into the starting lineup in 2020 at right tackle. In 2021, he moved to left tackle and had a strong year opening holes for Bijan Robinson. Jones went back to right tackle for 2022 and remained there in 2023. He could be a versatile swing-tackle backup to start out his pro career.
Kitan Oladapo, S, Oregon State
In 2023, Oladapo was a solid defender for the Beavers, collecting 73 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, seven passes broken up and two interceptions. He recorded 80 tackles and six breakups as a junior. Oladapo is a backup strong safety and special teams candidate for the mid-rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft.
Malik Mustapha, S, Wake Forest
Mustapha could be a backup safety and special teams contributor for the next level. In 2023, he totaled 80 tackles, an interception and two passes defended. He had 58 tackles and three breakups in 2022. Mustapha received an invitation to the Senior Bowl, and he could rise with a strong week in Mobile.
Beau Brade, S, Maryland
Brade was solid for Maryland in 2023, totaling 75 tackles, an interception and six passes broken up. He notched 85 stops, two interceptions and five breakups in 2022. Brade is a big strong safety candidate. Off of his solid two seasons with the Terrapins, Bade earned a Senior Bowl invitation, and he could be a riser if he does well in the practices there.
2024 NFL Draft Stock Down
Kingsley Suamataia, OT, BYU
Suamataia is known to be a freak athlete with a shocking combination of size, speed and athleticism. He had an excellent start to the 2023 season, but he did not play as well in the back half of the year. As a result, team sources have said they are projecting Suamataia to be a late first- or second-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. It would not be surprising if Suamataia helps to rehab his stock with strong workouts at the combine, his pro day, and during pre-draft visits. Still, Suamataia is being projected lower in the 2024 NFL Draft than where teams thought he might go three months ago.
