2024 Senior Bowl Roster Preview: Offense

Senior Bowl

The 2024  Senior Bowl begins a week from today with the first practice. The game will take place at Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile, AL on Saturday, February 3rd.

The Senior Bowl is the undisputed top All-Star Game for most of the best prospects available for the 2024 NFL Draft. Close to (or more than) 100 players who play or practice will be selected in the draft. Nearly 100% will be on an NFL roster in August.

For the first time ever, underclassmen will be eligible to play in the Senior Bowl (also the Shrine and HBCU Legacy Bowl) without having graduated from college first or exhausted their eligibility. This presented a unique twist on the roster building that the staff had to deal with.

Once again, Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy and his staff have put together a tremendous roster of talent. As of the time I am writing this, what would be a record roster size of 149 players have accepted invites to participate in the practices and the game this year.

The roster is so large that I have to split up my preview into both Offense and Defense. So today we will focus on the prospects on the offensive side.

2024 Senior Bowl Roster Preview: Offense

* = third-year player

QUARTERBACKS (7)

Sam Hartman, Notre Dame

Bo Nix, Oregon

Carter Bradley, South Alabama

Spencer Rattler, South Carolina

Joe Milton, Tennessee

Michael Pratt, Tulane

Michael Penix Jr., Washington

The quarterback roster in this year’s Senior Bowl is quite intriguing. You have two battling to potentially go in round one (Nix and Penix). Another three (Rattler, Milton, and Pratt) could go anywhere from the 3rd to 5th round. Bradley and Hartman are in the late day three range. 

Bo Nix is not the same passer he was at Auburn. Far from it. He can make tight-window throws and make plays off-script. However, he faced little to no pressure this season. Penix has an extensive injury history and struggles when the pocket isn’t clean. But his accuracy, especially downfield, is phenomenal.

There aren’t many passers that were pressured more this season than Rattler. He has a huge arm and the ability to make plays with his feet. Rattler tends to make decisions against his own better judgments. Milton has a humongous arm that he doesn’t always seem to know where it will go. The most consistent is Michael Pratt.

The QB room currently sits at seven. A spot is being held open for LSU’s Jayden Daniels. If he passes they will likely stay at seven.

HOW I STACK THEM: Nix, Penix, Rattler, Pratt, Hartman, Milton, Bradley

RUNNING BACKS (10)

Ray Davis, Kentucky

Jawhar Jordan, Louisville

Rasheen Ali, Marshall

Cody Schrader, Missouri

Dylan Laube, New Hampshire

Isaiah Davis, South Dakota State

MarShawn Lloyd, Southern Cal

Emani Bailey, TCU

Jaylen Wright, Tennessee*

Kimani Vidal, Troy

The running back class in 2024 is a deep one but doesn’t have anyone that wows you. The Senior Bowl group is no exception. There are fun players here for sure. 

For the first time that I can remember, there are ten players in this group. During practices, it is hard for most RBs to stand out. That will especially be the case this year.

HOW I STACK THEM: Lloyd, Ray Davis, Jordan, Laube, Wright, Schrader, Iasaih Davis, Vidal, Ali, Bailey

WIDE RECEIVERS (16)

Jacob Cowing, Arizona

Ricky Pearsall, Florida

Johnny Wilson, Florida State

Ladd McConkey, Georgia

Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint, Georgia

Jamari Thrash, Louisville

Roman Wilson, Michigan

Tez Walker, North Carolina

Luke McCaffrey, Rice

Xavier Legette, South Carolina

Brenden Rice, Southern Cal

Jordan Whittington, Texas

Ainias Smith, Texas A&M

Jha’Quan Jackson, Tulane

Javon Baker, UCF

Malachi Corley, Western Kentucky

Several wide receivers should be selected in the first 100 picks of the 2024 NFL Draft. I see a wide range of skill sets. Players who can create their own separation or beat you with straight speed. Who will be this year’s Tank Dell? 

HOW I STACK THEM: Legette, McConkey, Corley, Walker, Cowing, Johnny Wilson, Smith, Thrash, Pearsall, Roman Wilson, Rice, Whittington, Jackson, McCaffrey, Baker, Rosemy-Jacksaint

TIGHT ENDS (7)

Jaheim Bell, Florida State

Ben Sinnott, Kansas State

AJ Barner, Michigan

Brevyn Spann-Ford, Minnesota

Theo Johnson, Penn State

Jared Wiley, TCU

The 2024 tight end class is not strong or deep and the 2024 Senior Bowl group isn’t any different. It will be a mild upset if one goes in the first three rounds. If they do, it will be either Jaheim Bell or Ben Sinnott

HOW I STACK THEM: Bell, Sinnott, Spann-Ford, Wiley, Johnson, Barner

OFFENSIVE LINE (31)

TACKLES

Jordan Morgan, Arizona

Kingsley Suamataia, BYU*

Patrick Paul, Houston

Jeremy Flax, Kentucky

Ethan Driskell, Marshall

Delmar Glaze, Maryland

Javon Foster, Missouri

Tyler Guyton, Oklahoma

Taliese Fuaga, Oregon State

Christian Jones, Texas

Troy Fautanu, Washington

Roger Rosengarten, Washington

This is where the money will be made amongst all of the 2024 Senior Bowl position groups. Several of the players here will be (or could be) taken in round one. I believe Troy Fautanu and Taliese Fuaga are borderline locks. While Tyler Guyton, Graham Barton, Patrick Paul, Jordan Morgan, and Kingsley Suamataia, all could play their way in.

HOW I STACK THEM: Fuaga, Fautanu, Guyton, Paul, Morgan, Suamataia, Jones, Rosengarten, Foster, Driskell, Glaze, Flax

INTERIOR

Beaux Limmer, Arkansas

Kingsley Eguakun, Florida

Sedrick Van Pran, Georgia

Isaiah Adams, Illinois

Dominick Puni, Kansas

Cooper Beebe, Kansas State

Charles Turner III, LSU

Javion Cohen, Miami (FL)

LaDarius Henderson, Michigan

Trevor Keegan, Michigan

Andrew Raym, Oklahoma

Jackson Powers-Johnson, Oregon*

Brandon Coleman, TCU

Layden Robinson, Texas A&M

Christian Haynes, UConn

Sataoa Laumea, Utah

Zach Frazier, West Virginia

Tanor Bortolini, Wisconsin

The versatility of the interior OL in the Senior Bowl will be shown during the 1-on-1s in practice. The depth of this class is nice. Several prospects in the game will be selected in the top 100, with one or two (Beebe and Powers-Johnson) maybe sneaking into the backend of round one.

HOW I STACK THEM: Beebe, Powers-Johnson, Van Pran, Haynes, Cohen, Frazier, Adams, Puni, Coleman, Laumea, Raym, Bortolini, Turner III, Limmer, Keegan, Henderson, Robinson, Eguakun

WRAP IT UP

Draft Countdown will be there at every practice and the game itself. Both myself and Pigskin Paul will break down each practice daily and I will cover the game.
