The 2024 NFL Draft is this week, which means the scouting process is starting to wind down. We've been hard at work compiling as many scouting reports for the coming class as possible.

This class features future franchise quarterbacks, stud pass catchers and plenty of quality defenders. This article will house every report from the 2024 cycle. Each player's name will link out to their full report, where you can see their combine results, strengths, weaknesses and NFL outlook.

Players are listed in alphabetical order and are not ranked.

2024 NFL Draft Scouting Reports


Player Spotlight: Caleb Williams

Williams is a high-level prospect, and you could make the case he is one of the best quarterback prospects we have seen in recent years.

Greg Cosell

Running Backs

Player Spotlight: Braelon Allen

Wisconsin running back Braelon Allen (0) runs for a first down during the second quarter of their game at Huntington Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

He needs to become a much better and more physical confined space runner to develop into a primary back at the next level.

Wide Receivers

Player Spotlight: Malik Nabers

Malik Nabers dives for a ball as the LSU Tigers take on Texas A&M in Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

There were times he made me think of Deebo Samuel

Tight Ends

Player Spotlight: Brock Bowers

he has the high-level athletic traits and elite ball skills to develop into one of the NFL's best receiving weapons.

Offensive Tackles

Player Spotlight: Joe Alt

Alt is a technician in the run game with an excellent feel for defensive movement and gap fluidity.

Interior Offensive Linemen

Player Spotlight: Jackson Powers-Johnson

Powers-Johnson played with an attitude and swagger that are tone-setting for an offense.

Defensive Linemen

Player Spotlight: Byron Murphy

Murphy is the most dominant DT prospect in the 2024 draft class. He will be an immediate contributor and maybe even an impact player in his rookie season.

Edge Defenders

Player Spotlight: Dallas Turner

Turner’s college tape is tantalizing and frustrating given the physical and athletic traits he clearly possesses.

Player Spotlight: Payton Wilson

One player who came to mind as I kept watching Wilson was Pete Werner when he came out of Ohio State.

Player Spotlight: Quinyon Mitchell

Mitchell has all the needed traits to develop into a high-level NFL outside corner, and I expect he will come off the board in the first round.

Player Spotlight: Tyler Nubin

His reaction time and quick trigger allowed Nubin to play fast. His game speed is much faster than his timed speed (4.56).
