Who Are the Best Athletes in the 2024 NFL Draft

athletes

Every year hundreds of prospects enter the NFL Draft. The majority will go through testing at either the Combine or their Pro Day. These tests stack the players against each other to determine who are the best athletes in their class. Sometimes that makes a difference in how a prospect stacks. Sometimes it doesn’t matter.

Kent Lee Platte created RAS as a simple tool to take all of the athletic testing data and compare them against other prospects at their respective positions dating back to 1987.

So, today we are going to use and determine who are the best athletes at each position per RAS in the 2024 NFL Draft class.
