17. NFL Team Logo for Browns Cleveland Browns: Danny Stutsman, LB, Oklahoma

The Browns could use a long-term starter at middle linebacker.

Stutsman (6-4, 241) is a tough linebacker for the Sooners, making a lot of tackles and some splash plays for his defense. In 2023, he totaled 104 tackles, three sacks, an interception, two forced fumbles and three passes defended. In 2022, he recorded 124 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and five passes broken up. Team sources said Stutsman is very athletic, very fast and very instinctive. They stated they felt he has good size and length, but lacks ideal strength and physicality. They called Stutsman a less strong, more finesse version of Pete Werner.

18. NFL Team Logo for Cowboys Dallas Cowboys: T.J. Sanders, DT, South Carolina

The Cowboys could consider adding more talent for the inside of their defensive line.

Sanders broke out in 2023 with 43 tackles, 4.5 sacks and four passes batted. The 6-foot-5, 295-pounder has excellent size with upside to develop. Team sources said Sanders jumped out to them as a player to watch for the 2024 season.


19. NFL Team Logo for Falcons Atlanta Falcons: Princely Umanmielen, DE, Ole Miss

The Falcons passed on edge-rush talent in Round 1 of the 2024 NFL Draft to take Michael Penix Jr. Perhaps Zach Harrison or Bralen Trice will break out in 2023, but if not, Atlanta will need an edge rusher to go with Arnold Ebiketie.

Umanmielen played well for Florida in 2023, recording seven sacks and 39 tackles. He transferred to Ole Miss after the season. In 2022, he totaled 39 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. Umanmielen totaled 3.5 sacks over the 2021 and 2020 seasons. The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder has quality size with some speed and athleticism off the edge. He has shown improvement and growth as he has gained experience. Umanmielen still possesses upside to develop, so he could make another jump in 2024.

20. NFL Team Logo for Rams Los Angeles Rams: Jordan Hancock, CB, Ohio State

The Rams could look to add a true No. 1 corner for their defense from the 2025 NFL Draft.

Hancock totaled 41 tackles, two forced fumbles, two sacks, two interceptions and four passes defended in 2023. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder possesses good size and upside.


21. NFL Team Logo for Jets New York Jets: Tetairoa McMillan, WR, Arizona

The Jets grab a long-term receiver to pair with Garrett Wilson.

Arizona had an impressive 2023 season while featuring a dangerous passing attack. Wide receiver Jacob Cowing was a known factor for 2023, but McMillan emerged as a playmaker that season. The sophomore caught 90 passes on the year for 1,402 yards and 10 touchdowns. McMillan notched 39 catches for 702 yards and eight scores as a freshman. The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder McMillan has mismatch size for the NFL.


22. NFL Team Logo for Packers Green Bay Packers: Daylen Everette, CB, Georgia

Green Bay could consider adding more cornerback talent to go with Jaire Alexander.

Everette has a good skill set and a ton of upside to develop as he gains experience. In 2023, the sophomore corner played well for the Bulldogs, registering 29 tackles and five passes broken up. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder could take over as Georgia’s No. 1 corner in 2024.

23. NFL Team Logo for Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nic Anderson, WR, Oklahoma

Chris Godwin is a free agent after this season, and Tampa Bay could opt to get younger and cheaper across from Mike Evans.

The 6-foot-4, 209-pound Anderson showed that he was scratching the surface of his potential in 2023. As a redshirt freshman, Anderson caught 38 passes for 798 yards and 10 touchdowns. That made for a superb average of 21 yards per catch.


24. NFL Team Logo for Texans Houston Texans: Abdul Carter, OLB, Penn State

The Texans could use some youth at linebacker.

Carter notched 49 tackles, 4.5 sacks, five passes defended and one interception in 2023. In 2022, he made his presence felt as a freshman with 56 tackles, 6.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and four passes defended. The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder has quickness and upside to develop.

25. NFL Team Logo for Ravens Baltimore Ravens: Kelvin Banks, OT/G, Texas

Baltimore could use more young talent for the offensive line.

Banks played well as the starting left tackle for the Longhorns in 2023 and as a freshman in 2022. At 6-foot-4, 324 pounds, Banks has adequate size, but some might view him as having more of a guard-type body – depending on how long his arms are.


26. NFL Team Logo for 49ers San Francisco 49ers: Landon Jackson, DE, Arkansas

Depending on how some young players play this season, the 49ers might need to draft a true replacement for Arik Armstead.

The 6-foot-7, 280-pound Jackson is strong at the point of attack and has good length to keep blockers from getting into his chest. In 2023, Jackson recorded 44 tackles, 6.5 sacks and a pass broken up. He has upside and could be a nice prospect for the 2025 NFL Draft.


27. NFL Team Logo for Dolphins Miami Dolphins: Colston Loveland, TE, Michigan

The Dolphins could use a tight end upgrade.

Michigan had more experienced tight ends, but Loveland was so good that he forced his way onto the field. In 2023, he caught 45 passes for 649 yards and four touchdowns. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder would be capable of producing more if he played in a passing offense. Loveland has the potential to be a riser.

28. NFL Team Logo for Bills Buffalo Bills: Earnest Greene III, OT, Georgia

The Bills could consider more offensive line help.

Greene was Georgia’s starter at left tackle in 2023 and played well. The 6-foot-4, 320-pounder fits with some other Bulldogs left tackles who have not been typical edge protectors in terms of size, but he is strong and athletic.


29. NFL Team Logo for Lions Detroit Lions: Kenneth Grant, DT, Michigan

The Lions will probably sign Alim McNeil to an extension, and D.J. Reader will be in the last year of his contract come 2025. Here’s a long-term tackle to go with McNeil.

It took time for Grant to work his way onto the field behind Kris Jenkins. However, Grant really flashed as a sophomore. In 2023, Grant put up 29 tackles, four passes batted, 3.5 sacks, and an interception in backup duty. The 6-foot-3, 339-pounder has a good skill set with big-time upside.


30. NFL Team Logo for Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs: Malachi Starks, S, Georgia

The Chiefs could be looking for a safety upgrade next April in the 2025 NFL Draft.

In 2023, Starks racked up 52 tackles, three interceptions and seven passes defended. He recorded 69 tackles, two picks and seven breakups in 2022. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder’s size gives him versatility.

31. NFL Team Logo for Eagles Philadelphia Eagles: Sonny Styles, S, Ohio State

Philadelphia grabs an upgrade at safety.

Styles has flashed real ability and a special skill set that could lead to him being a difference-making pro player. In 2023, he recorded 53 tackles, two sacks and one pass batted, plus he was very good in pass coverage. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder is a big safety who moves like a smaller player. He could turn into a coveted prospect prior to the 2025 NFL Draft.

32. NFL Team Logo for Bengals Cincinnati Bengals: Tyleik Williams, DT, Ohio State

The Bengals add a defensive tackle to go with Kris Jenkins.

Williams flashed interior rush ability in 2021, putting up five sacks and 16 tackles. In 2023, he played solid football, recording 54 tackles, three sacks and five passes defended. Williams (6-2, 290) made a number of impressive plays against Notre Dame, getting the better of left tackle Joe Alt.
