Christian Mahogany 2024 NFL DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT


  • An athletic lineman with good movement skills to make blocks on the edge and in space, especially good in zone run schemes
  • A physical, attacking lineman who aggressively takes on defenders as a run blocker and in pass protection.
  • A movement player who excels on the edge and in space when pulling on edge runs/screens; shows good speed/quickness
  • Good contact power shown in the run game to generate movement once engaged; strong at the point of contact
  • A stout, strong guard who anchors well to limit push vs. power rush and controls defenders when engaged properly
  • Solid vision and recognition to see stunts and blitzes to trade off defenders, showing good reaction and quickness.
  • Excels in interior combo blocks to double up to the second level because of his strength, size and speed
  • Power to generate movement in the run game – keeps feet moving after initial contact and plays with leverage


  • Poor weight distribution at the point of attack as a run blocker, causing him to lean into blocks and play off balance
  • Drops head and lunges (waist bender) in pass protection, limiting his ability to change direction and redirect
  • Needs to improve hand usage as a pass blocker when engaging defenders and keep his head back and out of blocks
  • Stops his feet at times after initial contact, causing him to struggle to move to stay attached to defenders
  • An over-aggressive player who takes poor angles and plays out of position, which affects his ability to sustain blocks
  • Slow, heavy feet at times in pass pro, causing him to be slow to react to secondary rush and allowing penetration

Mahogany was a three-year starter at guard for Boston College, playing both left and right guard. That shows good position versatility to provide depth in the NFL.

He has the athleticism to get out in space and make blocks in the run and screen games and the quickness to react to stunts. He excels in zone run schemes.

Mahogany plays with poor technique at the point of attack, leaning and lunging into blocks, which causes him to play off balance due to poor weight distribution. He's also an overaggressive lineman who plays out of control, affecting his ability to sustain blocks once engaged because of his poor technique.

Overall, Mahogany is a good athlete who needs to refine his technique to play with better weight distribution and under control to more consistently sustain blocks in the run game and pass protection. He displays good strength to hold his ground vs. power rushes and generates movement in the run game with initial punch/pop.

Mahogany has mid-round value because of his size and strength as well as his movement skills and could provide initial interior offensive line depth. The hope is he can improve his technique, balance and core strength to develop into a starter a few years down the road.


Mahogany came out of Paramus, N.J., as a three-star recruit and was ranked only the 104th guard in the National and third-ranked guard in New Jersey. He played three seasons at Boston College and earned First-Team All-ACC in 2023 and Second-Team All-ACC in 2021. Mohagany started his career as a left guard in 2020 and then moved to right guard for his last two seasons — 2021 and 2023. He missed 2022 due to injury.

Mahogany from 2020-23 had 2,206 total offensive snaps with 732 at left guard and 1,446 at right guard. The remaining 27 snaps came at tackle. 

In 2020 while primarily at left guard, he had 432 pass plays and allowed only two pressures (0.5 percent pressure rate). Mahogany had 301 running plays with seven snaps of blown assignments (a 2.3 percent bad run block rate). In 2021 and '23 while primarily at right guard, he had 682 pass plays and allowed allowing only three pressures (a 0.4 percent pressure rate). Mahogany had 791 running plays with only seven snaps of blown assignments (a 0.9 percent bad run block rate). He totaled only a 0.7 percent blown block rate on all plays, run or pass, when aligned at right guard.
