A look at the pre-draft meetings for the New England Patriots ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft with the Patriots pre-draft meeting tracker. (Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports)

Throughout the pre-draft process, NFL teams meet with prospects sometimes on multiple occasions. These meets can occur at showcase games like the Senior Bowl and Shrine Bowl, the NFL Combine, can be organized officially (top-30 visits), or be arranged in a number of other ways.

While these meetings aren’t always a perfect indication of who a team will draft, they often provide a general guide of the kinds of players a team is considering drafting. Tracking meetings can also come to fruition later on when a draft class hits free agency.

Last year the Patriots only had an official pre-draft meeting with one of their draft picks (Christian Gonzalez) and signed another as a UDFA (Malik Cunningham). In 2022 they met with two draft picks (Jack Jones and Marcus Jones) and another UDFA (D’Eriq King). Make of that what you will – the more pessimistic fans can use meetings as a guide to players the Patriots won’t be drafting.

Who have the Patriots met with in 2024? Here’s a running list. Be sure to check back throughout the offseason as the list is updated…

  • S Mark Perry, TCU

    Meeting: Shrine Bowl | Zoom

    Height: 6-foot

    Weight: 213 pounds

    2023 production: 12 games, 58 tackles, 3 TFLs, 4 PBUs, forced fumble

    Scouting report: “A two-year starter at TCU, Perry was the strong safety in defensive coordinator Joe Gillespie’s 3-3-5 base scheme, playing primarily in off coverage. After three seasons at Colorado (football and track), he transferred to the Horned Frogs for his final two seasons and combined for 142 tackles — although his ball production wasn’t nearly as impressive (six passes defended and zero interceptions in 27 games). In coverage, Perry reacts with natural twitch and field range to cover a lot of ground, but he needs improved route recognition to better put himself in position to make plays on the ball. He plays gap sound in the alley and can finish one-on-one when he uses proper technique and timing. Overall, Perry will occasionally lose his man when left on an island, but his explosive athleticism allows for quick recoveries and shows in the run game, as well. He projects as an NFL reserve with upside to see the field in subpackages and on special teams.” (Source)

    Projected pick: Day 3

  • QB Michael Penix, Washington

    Meeting: Top 30

    Height: 6-foot-2

    Weight: 216 pounds

    2023 production: 15 games, 65.4% completions, 4,903 yards, 36 TDs, 11 INTs

    Career accolades: Maxwell Award (2023), AP Comeback Player of the Year (2022), First-team All-American (2023), Second-team All-Pac-12 (2022, 2023), Second-team All-Big Ten (2020)

    Scouting report: “Penix will be a 24-year-old rookie with a history of season-ending injuries at Indiana and impressive production while at Washington. The Huskies’ offensive design helped declutter coverages for Penix, allowing him to throw a higher number of intermediate and deep passes. He plays with smart pocket mobility and a willingness to get rid of the football, which makes it difficult to sack him. His delivery is bundled and his release point is very low, but his monster game against Texas showed flashes of impeccable touch. Penix has plenty of arm but needs to work with more consistent timing between the numbers to eliminate unnecessary contested throws. He’s a pocket passer who was ineffective in 2023 when defenses were able to crank up the heat and make him move his feet. Playing in a shotgun-based spread attack might give him his best chance to succeed, but he needs to prove he can thrive outside of the Washington offense and stay free from injury.” (Source)

  • CB Decamerion Richardson, Mississippi State

    Meeting: Top 30

    Height: 6-foot-2

    Weight: 188 pounds

    2023 production: 12 games, 69 tackles, 7 PBUs

    Scouting report: “Two-year starting cornerback with outstanding physical features but below-average coverage features. He’s leggy with below-average lateral transitions and change of direction in space. Richardson doesn’t play with enough anticipation or short-area burst to make plays on the ball but does have a big make-up gear in a straight line. He’s OK as a tackler but should get better with a greater focus in that department. Richardson’s size and top-end speed will immediately garner attention, but he doesn’t appear to have the skill set to play safety and will be limited by a narrow scheme fit.” (Source)

    Projected pick: Day 3

  • WR Tejhaun Palmer, UAB

    Meeting: Top 30

    Height: 6-foot-1

    Weight: 210 pounds

    2023 production: 12 games, 47 catches, 858 yards, 7 TDs

    Career accolades: Third-team All-AAC (2023)

    Scouting report: “Tejhaun Palmer started playing football at age 6 and was a standout in both basketball and football (receiver and cornerback) at Brown Deer High. He went the juco route and enrolled at Snow (Utah) College, where he earned All-America status in spring of 2021. Palmer received a full-ride offer from UAB, and his production steadily increased over the last three seasons, including career bests as a senior in 2023 (led the AAC in with 18 .3 yards per reception). Palmer was always a “freak” according to his coaches — and being part of an FBS program helped develop that talent (earned a spot on Bruce Feldman’s “Freaks List”). He has explosive stride acceleration entering his routes and will run away from pursuit once he gains a step. He has strong ball skills and maintains his catch focus in a crowd or open space. Overall, Palmer lacks precision in his routes and overall consistency, but he is a dynamic height/weight/speed athlete with more talent than meets the eye.” (Source)

    Projected pick: UDFA

  • DL Brandon Dorlus, Oregon

    Meeting: Top 30

    Height: 6-foot-3

    Weight: 283 pounds

    2023 production: 14 games, 25 tackles, 6.5 TFLs, 5 sacks, 9 PBUs

    Career accolades: First-team All-Pac-12 (2021, 2023), Second-team All-Pac-12 (2022)

    Scouting report: “Physical, heavy-handed defender whose pedestrian production could see an increase at the pro level. Dorlus is a fairly natural edge defender who can play standing or with a hand down. He doesn’t play with desired instincts or awareness in the run game but has the upper-body power to become a more forceful edge-setter or interior penetrator in the future. He shows an impressive ability to slide and slap his way around blockers for quick wins, even though the sack total fails to show it. Dorlus is a natural fit as a power end in a 4-3 or 3-4, but teams might want him to add weight and take on a role as a full-time 3-technique.” (Source)

    Projected pick: Day 2

  • WR Troy Franklin, Oregon

    Meeting: Top 30

    Height: 6-foot-2

    Weight: 176 pounds

    2023 production: 13 games, 81 catches, 1,383 yards, 14 TDs

    Career accolades: Second-team All-American (2023), First-team All-Pac-12 (2023), Second-team All-Pac-12 (2022)

    Scouting report: “The puzzle pieces are fairly easy to put together when assessing who Franklin is and who he could be in the NFL. He’s a tall, linear receiver with good speed. He’s sudden enough to beat press but lacks the play strength to win combat catches and fight for operating space underneath. He has an innate talent for avoiding traffic and maintaining his distance from pursuit after the catch on crossing routes on all three levels. Franklin might not get WR1 target volume, but he should be productive with a high yards-per-catch average and the ability to open things up underneath for his teammates. Franklin could become a coveted complementary piece for an established WR1 or a productive vertical target for a team looking for instant help in the passing game.” (Source)

    Projected pick: Day 2

    Meeting: Top 30

    Height: 6-foot-4

    Weight: 323 pounds

    Experience: 55 games, 47 starts (45 at LT, 2 at RG)

    Scouting report: “A three-star recruit, he signed with South Florida, where he saw immediate reps at left tackle. Despite missing some time with injuries, he set a school record with 55 games played over his six seasons. Jennings is quick out of his stance and looks comfortable on the move to reach/cut in zone. In the run game, he has only average power and grit. With his lack of length, he is a strong candidate to move inside (96.2 percent of his college snaps came at left tackle, but he looked solid at guard during Shrine Bowl practices). Overall, Jennings displays enough foot quickness and hip flexibility in pass protection, but he must refine his hand placement to establish leverage and strengthen his anchor to match up in the NFL” (Source)

    Projected pick: UDFA

    Meeting: Local visit

    Height: 5-foot-9

    Weight: 182 pounds

    2023 production: 15 games, 44 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 6 INTs, 6 PBUs, 2 forced fumbles, 2 TDs

    Career accolades: First-team All-American (2023), First-team All-Big Ten(2023)

    Scouting report: “Reliable and tough with the athleticism and upside to keep getting better as a nickel corner. Sainristil is a former receiver who plays with surprising field awareness and attention to detail as a zone defender. He has the twitch and footwork to stay connected with routes in man coverage but needs more experience at the position to operate with better recognition and feel for the routes. He showed off top-notch ball skills with six interceptions (two for scores) in 2023 and has no problem stepping up and doing his part as a run defender. Sainristil isn’t there yet but should keep improving and has a chance to become a starting nickel in time.” (Source)

    Meeting: Visit

    Height: 6-foot-8

    Weight: 352 pounds

    Experience: 38 games, starts at LT and LG

    Career accolades: All-Canadian (2022, 2023)

    Scouting report: “His size combined with his strength, speed and quick feet makes him a very enticing prospect.He is lacking a lot of refinement. At times his hand placement can be off-target and badly timed. Given his size, this makes technically savvy pass rushers able to counter him quickly and lead him to hold onto defenders. Speed-to-power rushers also use his size against him to manipulate his movement. He’s exclusively a left tackle with no real tape showing how he would be at right tackle. This means he’s limited as a swing tackle and more a backup left tackle. That’s unless he can quickly learn the nuances of playing on the right.” (Source)

    Projected pick: UDFA

    Meeting: Top 30 visit

    Height: 6-foot-8

    Weight: 322 pounds

    Experience: 29 games, 15 starts (13 at RT in a lefty-quarterback offense, 1 at LT, one at TE)

    Scouting report: “Ascending tackle prospect with the traits and tape to project a bright future as a high-level pass protector in the league. Guyton has battled injuries and had limited reps coming over from TCU after the 2021 season, but his flashes have been complemented by increasing consistency. He plays with a high center of gravity and needs to get stronger, but leveraged hand strikes can help overcome those concerns. He should continue to get better as a run blocker but might never shine in that department. Guyton’s value comes with his pass protection, as he has the length, feet and body control to become a human roadblock. He should become a talented starter at either tackle position.” (Source)

    Weight: 252 pounds

    2023 production: 10 games, 46 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 9 TFLs, 2 forced fumbles, 3 PBUs, INT

    Career accolades: First-team All-Big 12 (2023)

    Scouting report: “Tall, long-armed tight end who flashes the potential to line up in-line or as a move tight end. Wiley would benefit from better strength in his lower half to help sustain blocks, but his technique is generally good. He has the stride length to pick up speed in the seam and across the hashes on intermediate throws. The short-area foot quickness is very average and he’s an average separator underneath. Wiley’s catch talent and ability to fight through contact are big check marks in his favor. He has the versatility and potential to compete for a role as a TE3.” (Source)

    Meeting: Top 30 visit

    Height: 6-foot-6

    Weight: 310 pounds

    Experience: 27 games, 27 starts (26 at RT, 1 at LT)

    Scouting report: “Athletic tackle with the talent to gain some traction in a draft that is deep at his position. Fisher can be late off the ball, creating early disadvantages, and his contact balance and hand usage can be spotty at times. He’s a capable climber and puller as a move blocker and he does a nice job of drive blocking with plus technique to create leverage. He establishes his anchor against a bull rush but will occasionally struggle to open his hips and keep edge rushers from flattening into the pocket. In general, he’s going to mirror up against counters. Fisher needs to do a better job with consistency and finishing blocks, but he has the tape and tools to become a starter at either tackle spot.” (Source)

    Meeting: Top 30 visit

    Height: 6-foot-5

    Weight: 314 pounds

    Experience: 47 games, 40 starts (all at RT)

    Scouting report: “Wallace played tackle in college but could be considered as a tackle or guard by NFL evaluators. He’s broad across his upper and lower body and has decent length and big hands. He’s a clock-puncher who plays with better fundamentals and technique than his highly regarded teammate, Olumuyiwa Fashanu. Wallace won’t flash as often as a run blocker and he might be somewhat capped out in terms of what he’s going to be as a tackle. Wallace has NFL size and good body control and should find work as a backup with the potential to start as a guard or tackle.” (Source)

    Meeting: Top 30

    Height: 6-foot-4

    Weight: 240 pounds

    2023 production: 12 games, 56 tackles, 8 sacks, 12 TFLs, 2 forced fumbles

    Career accolades: First-team All-Big 12 (2023), Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year

    Scouting report: “Truly unique prospect combining tremendous upside with an extremely limited sample size. A more conservative approach on Booker’s grade might be prudent, but it becomes a difficult route to take when observing his length, explosive athleticism and rush talent. Booker needs to get bigger and stronger, but that will come. The diversity of his rush approach is unheard of for a player with so little playing time. He can stride and dip at the top of the rush or beat tackles back inside with a Euro step or spin counter. He can stab and long-arm tackles into the pocket or stay separated from them at the point of attack. He chases quarterbacks and running backs with agility and burst but can be inconsistent dealing with a downhill running game. His reps against talented Texas left tackle Kelvin Banks Jr. could be the springboard to push this gifted edge defender with monster traits up the draft board toward an exciting NFL career.” (Source)

    2023 production: 12 games, 53 catches, 795 yards, 2 TDs

    Career accolades: First-team All-SEC (2023)

    Scouting report: “Slot receiver with a somewhat unusual blend of elusiveness and power when the ball is in his hands. Smith is fine as a possession slot who can run more complicated routes underneath while also offering the courage to work successfully into the middle of the field. The route running is good but has room to get even better with more polish. However, his true calling might be as a gadget guy. He expands play-calling options with his ability as an occasional ball-carrier and open-field explorer, where the quick game and West Coast routes would allow him to get the ball in his hands and do his thing.” (Source)

    Height: 6-foot-2

    Weight: 247 pounds

    2023 production: 13 games, 38 tackles, 16 TFLs, 8 sacks

    Scouting report: “What Murphy lacks in size and length he makes up for with skill and production. He’s short-armed, which will worry teams on the pro level, but his hands are so sudden and polished that it tends to ease concerns. He works his hands and feet in perfect harmony to elude blockers like a shifty runner eluding tacklers. Murphy could struggle to survive against run blockers who square him up, but he typically finds a way to slither out of sustain attempts on the collegiate level. He failed to dominate one-on-one opportunities at East-West Shrine Bowl practices, but his ability to maneuver into the backfield as a run defender and pass rusher has merit and should give him a shot to become a solid 3-4 edge rusher.” (Source)

    Height: 6-foot-0

    Weight: 288 pounds

    2023 production: 13 games, 24 tackles, 7.5 TFLs, 4 sacks

    Scouting report: “Pollard quietly had a strong career at Virginia Tech. He played in every game over five years (61), starting in 48 of them. His numbers varied over his time at Tech, but he also had to play for three different defensive coordinators (four if Brent Pry and Chris Marve are considered separately). He is a good leader, serving as a captain for the past two seasons, but it is unlikely that the Apopka, Florida native is drafted this April.” (Source)

    Height: 6-foot-2

    Weight: 233 pounds

    2023 production: 12 games, 137 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 2 PBUs, INT

    Career accolades: SEC Defensive Player of the Year (2023), First-team All-SEC (2023), Second-team All-SEC (2022)

    Scouting report: “Watson is a throwback linebacker with the size, length and demeanor to handle the physical nature of life between the tackles. He plays with good diagnostic quickness and will punch and separate from most climbing blocks. Tight hips and a lack of pursuit speed seem to limit his ability to eat with solo tackles once plays flow wide or enter open space. There are too many bumpy moments on tape to expect him to hold up in coverage, but he’s better than average at disrupting when used as a blitzer. Watson’s size and production in impact categories are impressive, but athletic limitations could put a cap on his NFL production.” (Source)

    Career accolades: Unanimous All-American (2023), First-team All-SEC (2023)

    Scouting report: “Nabers is the next big thing coming out of LSU’s receiver room, with the pure explosiveness and talent to be mentioned in the same breath as former LSU stars starring in the league today. Despite a lack of polish and precision as a route-runner, Nabers’ gliding movements and speed alterations seem to disguise the top-end speed and separation potential that await opposing coverages. He’s a bouncy leaper with the athletic ability to make the impossible catches possible. He tucks away accurate throws and displays the toughness and play strength to fight for tight-window victories over the middle. Nabers will need to address his tendency to track and play deep throws with finesse, or his early advantages will turn into 50/50 battles. He can play all three receiver spots and has the profile to become a productive, high-volume target over all three levels as a potential WR1.” (Source)

    Career accolades: Second-team All-Big 12 (2023)

    Scouting report: “A five-star recruit coming out of high school, Suamataia spent time at Oregon before transferring to BYU and finding two years of starting experience. He has good size and adequate play strength, but sloppy hand placement limits control and consistency as both a run and pass blocker. Suamataia could struggle to handle NFL edge speed in pass protection, but he’s quick enough for move-blocking duties in outside zone and in space. He can redirect and mirror counters when he’s postured up and appears capable of dealing with bull rushers. The tape is more solid than spectacular, but Suamataia has the ability to become an average starting tackle on the right side.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Former Alabama signee with good size and skill level who finally saw his production spike once he transferred to UCF. Baker looks the part, and his tape will keep growing on you the longer it runs. His play was very natural and instinctive in 2023; he made quality plays on the ball in game after game. He uses speed changes and route leverage to create separation, and he’s at his best working the second and third levels from either inside or outside. The ball skills are NFL-caliber, but the hands will lose focus at times. Baker has the traits and skill level of an NFL receiver and should fight for an eventual shot as a WR3/4.” (Source)

    Career accolades: Second-team All-ACC (2023)

    Scouting report: “Undersized as a tight end and lacking instincts as a lead blocker out of the backfield, Bell is a player without a clean positional fit after playing all over the field at South Carolina and Florida State. When Bell centers in and locks up, he can be an effective blocker, but he is wildly inconsistent when asked to make blocks on the move in space. He’s tight-hipped, but he does have the speed to run the seams and is a talented runner after the catch. He might need to find a modified gadget role and really show out on special teams to make a squad.” (Source)

    Career accolades: CFL Most Outstanding Rookie (2023), CFL East All-Star (2023)

    Scouting report: “Stiggers gave up his football dream after his father died due to injuries suffered in a car crash. He never played a down of college ball. Instead, he wanted to help his family. A year later, his mother signed him up for a local tryout with an arena-based football team. His performance and ball skills led to CFL tryout with the Toronto Argonauts, with whom he signed a contract. During his first season as a CFL cornerback, the now-22-year-old tied for second with five interceptions on his way to being named the league’s Most Outstanding Rookie. Since Stiggers never actually played at the collegiate level and he’s three years removed from his final high school season, he remains eligible to be drafted into the NFL.” (Source)

    Career accolades: First-team All-SEC (2023)

    Scouting report: “Abrams-Draine is a talented prospect with good football intelligence and the versatility to fit in with teams desiring to mix up coverages. He’s on the slender side and will need to prove he can handle both man coverage and run-support duties against an upgrade in size. His confidence and cover skills improved last year, but his ball skills and instincts have always been good. He’s very poised in one-on-ones down the field and has the range and field vision teams look for. Abrams-Draine’s on-ball production and general consistency help mitigate concerns over size, and he could come off the board as a Day 2 selection, with the ability to compete for a role as a CB3.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Worthy’s draft slotting could come down to draft-room debates weighing his elite speed versus his thin frame. Worthy will find separation if allowed to explore vertically or across the hashes against man coverage, but he lacks play strength and release quickness to defeat a quality NFL press. His quick-strike potential adds an element of danger over the top and should open wider windows for teammates to work into. He lacks the physical tools to catch when contested and needs to prove he can hold up to a more physical brand of football. Worthy is a niche prospect for teams looking to add a legit field-stretcher, but areas of concern could create a wider gap between ceiling and floor.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Talented pass-catching tight end with an exciting floor if he can handle the rigors of the pro game. Sanders possesses an average build, but he has room for more muscle. He flashes as a run blocker, but he isn’t consistent at the point of attack. He can get up the field from in-line or from the slot, beating man coverage at his route stems or separating quickly from turns. He is able to dig in and win combat catches underneath and has proven to be highly effective running the seam or catching intermediate throws into zone pockets. Teams looking for a tight end with a more complete game might pass on him, but his potential to open up the passing game and become a highly productive pass-catcher should be hard to pass on.” (Source)

    Career accolades: Consensus All-American (2023), First-team All-Pac-12 (2022, 2023)

    Scouting report: “A team captain with good size and elite ball skills, Odunze consistently dominated his competition. While most receivers look to open separation windows with speed or route running, Odunze seems to relish jump balls and contested catches. He shines in all aspects of ball skills, including positioning, body control, hand strength, timing and mid-air adjustments. He has a tendency to cruise through routes rather than working with attention to detail and pacing. He was a decorated high school sprinter, so speed should not be an issue in the pros. He’s a high-volume target on the next level that play-callers can utilize to mismatch finesse cornerbacks. Elite ball skills are often the secret sauce for top NFL receivers, so it should not surprise if Odunze is a Day 1 starter who becomes a top-flight WR1.” (Source)

    Experience: 24 games, 21 starts (all at LT)

    Career accolades: Consensus All-American (2023), First-team All-Big Ten (2023), Second-team All-Big Ten (2022)

    Scouting report: “A toolsy two-year starter with loads of potential, Fashanu is still learning to be less mechanical and more instinctive with his play. At this point, he could impose his traits upon most collegiate opponents and stack the deck in his favor. As a pro, he will need to play with better control and more consistent technique to prevent being countered and beaten by NFL talent. There is still room to get bigger and stronger, but he’s already playing with good focus and drive as a run blocker. Issues with footwork and landmarks can be corrected with more coaching. He’s long and has really effective recovery agility to help keep his quarterback clean, but inconsistent pass slides and excessive leaning could make things harder than they need to be early on. Overall, the work ethic, traits and tape make it easier to project Fashanu’s continued improvement into a very good left tackle.” (Source)

    Experience: 38 games, 33 starts (all at LT)

    Career accolades: Unanimous All-American (2023), First-team All-American (2022)

    Scouting report: “Long-limbed team captain with NFL-quality tackle play coursing through his veins. Alt plays a disciplined brand of football, avoiding penalties and working with fluid transitions from entry to sustain to finish as a run blocker. Alt is a capable drive blocker with the foot quickness to play onto the second level. He struggles to bend enough to compensate for his height and ends up playing with waist-bending and forward lean that can hamper his anchor against bull-rushers. Alt has quick hands and outstanding arm extension, promoting his ability to sustain blocks and redirect pass-rushers. He’s a good technician who carries himself with confidence from snap to snap. Alt clearly has the talent to become a Day 1 starter on the left side, but he’ll need to clean up his habit of leaning forward, or he could be in for some bumpy action early on.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Presents an appealing combination of size, length and speed with experience working inside and outside. Thomas will occasionally go through the motions as a route-runner, but the bend, athleticism and speed needed to get better are all in the toolbox. He’s elusive against press and can uncover quickly underneath, but he still needs to improve intermediate routes and play a little more physically when crowded to become well-rounded. Thomas rarely has issues generating separation deep and could be counted on as an NFL team’s designated deep guy early in his career. Thomas is unpolished but has projectable talent to become a WR1/2 in time.” (Source)

    2023 production: 11  games, 37 catches, 644 yards, 11 TDs

    Career accolades: Second-team All-Pac-12 (2023)

    Scouting report: “The bloodlines don’t get much better than Jerry Rice, so Brenden Rice might have a head start on the rest of the field. He’s big and plays a physical brand of football when cornerbacks want to fight over space. He lacks sudden feet, so beating press cleanly and separating on short routes could be challenging as a pro. Rice possesses good build-up speed to create deep-ball opportunities once his ball skills are added to the equation. Rice catches with quick, strong hands and good extension to help with frequent contested catches. There are some limitations at play, but he has enough checkmarks to project as an early backup with some upward mobility.” (Source)

    2023 production: 12 games, 71 catches, 1,255 yards, 7 TDs

    Career accolades: Second-team All-SEC (2023)

    Scouting report: “Legette is tight-hipped with a linear release that makes him susceptible to press. He uses his route running simply as a means of getting to the rendezvous point rather than a chance to con coverage out of position. His star shines brightest once the ball goes up and he’s able to use his body control, play strength and ball skills to impose his will on the coverage. He’s unlikely to become a smooth route runner, but he can handle tough catches and he has stealth acceleration that makes him a credible deep-ball threat. Add toughness as a runner and run blocker to his profile of competitiveness and he becomes a Day 2 talent with the potential to develop into a starter.” (Source)

Watson was just that for the Tigers in 2023, recording 53 receptions for 485 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

    Watson doubled as an effective runner, totaling 1,152 yards and 14 touchdowns as a ball carrier. Watson averaged six yards per carry and 125.9 total yards from scrimmage per game. Watson proved he could handle a step up in competition after transferring from Old Dominion to Memphis.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Harrison comes from impressive NFL bloodlines and possesses similarities that made his father, Pro Football Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison, special. Harrison can run but isn’t a burner. What makes him tough to handle is his consistent play speed paired with quality salesmanship in his routes. He’s able to uncover no matter where he’s aligned or which part of the field his assignment takes him to, and he is capable of finishing catches in a crowd. Harrison can be sudden while working possession routes, and he’s well qualified to beat any opponent with his ball skills if the battle heads deep. Harrison is a touchdown champ with a variety of ways to excel, and that characteristic figures to follow him into the pros. He has the traits and tools to win in all three phases of the route and on all three levels of the field. He’s a pedigree prospect and a Day 1 starter with high-end production expected.” (Source)

    Career accolades: Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year (2023), First-team All-Mountain West (2023), Second-team All-Mountain West (2022)

    Scouting report: “Broadly built edge defender with substandard traits but lights-out production over the last couple of seasons. Kamara won’t be everyone’s cup of tea due to his lack of length and tendency to rely heavily upon his power. He gets into the pocket with violent hands, lower-body drive power and a relentless desire to meet the quarterback. He’ll have to prove he can circumvent long-limbed technicians on the next level, which could be a challenge. He’s not a classic edge-setter against the run but does a nice job of playing under blockers and sneaking into the gaps. He might drop some on draft day due to the measurables, but the kind of will to conquer he’s shown typically translates in the NFL.” (Source)

    Weight: 202 pounds

    2023 production: 15 games, 72.3% completions, 2,991 yards, 22 TDs, 4 INTs

    Career accolades: First-team All-Big Ten (2023), Second-team All-Big Ten (2022)

    Scouting report: “Enigmatic quarterback lacking the measurables and splash throws associated with early round quarterbacks but possessing elements that require more study and consideration. McCarthy lacks frame thickness and a plus arm. He’s fairly poised in the pocket but is average as a pocket passer. His ball placement and timing need to improve to help mitigate an average operation time due to a windup release. McCarthy doesn’t seek to play out of structure but is fairly consistent at making positive plays when it happens and ramps up his focus late in games and on third downs. He is confident and seems to have the ability to take slights and digest it as competitive fuel. McCarthy should continue to improve as a passer, but he fails to stand out in many of the areas that tend to be predictive of top-level success in the NFL.” (Source)

    Career accolades: Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year (2023), First-team All-Pac-12 (2023), SEC Freshman of the Year (2019)

    Scouting report: “Rare five-year starting quarterback whose play has matured in front of our eyes. Nix displays the accuracy, arm talent and athleticism consistent with today’s brand of pro quarterback. He can be punctual in getting the ball out at the top of his drop or he can work through progressions and beat defenses with second-reaction plays. He throws with good velocity and puts the ball on the money when throwing on the move. Nix has shown great improvement with his pocket poise. He’s capable of moving the sticks as a scrambler or as part of the running game. Some of his gaudy production has been driven by the Oregon offense’s design, but his talent clearly stands out. I’ve harbored bias from watching the overwhelmed version of Nix during his Auburn days, but as the saying goes, “tape don’t lie.” Nix appears more than ready to attack the league with an NFL-caliber skill set.” (Source)

    Career accolades: First-team All-American FCS (2023) First-team All-Patriot League (2022-2023)

    Scouting report: “The evaluation for Coker boils down to balancing his pro-caliber size and ball skills against his level of competition and potential lack of NFL quickness and speed. His focus, ball-tracking and timing give him distinct advantages that other receivers lack, and his catch radius and hand strength helped him make mincemeat of Ivy League coverages near the goal line. Coker’s deep speed appears to be average, so he will need to refine his route running to become better equipped to beat NFL defenders in space and open up workable windows for his quarterback. Coker is talented and productive, but the testing numbers will be huge for his draft slotting and chances in the league.” (Source)

    Experience: 43 games, 37 starts (all starts at RG)

    Career accolades: First-team All-Patriot League (2022, 2023)

    Scouting report: “Durable three-year starting guard with a captain’s “C” added to his jersey in 2023. Hanson plays with terrific technique and gets into Phase 1 of his pass and run blocks with good balance and positioning. His hand placement as a run blocker is above average, while his pass punch is well-timed and accurate. Hanson does the right things, but he simply lacks the play strength needed to match up with NFL defensive tackles. Hanson could be a potential late-round or free-agent target for a team looking to add muscle and mass during a year on the practice squad.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “With five seasons of starting experience under his belt, Daniels possesses a rare blend of playmaking talent and command from the pocket. He’s tall but slender, so there will be concerns about durability, considering how often he ran in college. However, teams must also recognize that he has no issues sitting in the pocket and working through progressions as a platform thrower with good mechanics and footwork. Daniels possesses the football intelligence to get himself protected and take care of the football with quality decision-making. He’s an accurate passer over the first two levels and throws with anticipation to slice and dice zone coverages. He had noticeable issues putting deep throws on faster receivers in stride, though. He lacks ideal size and arm talent, but he’s much more capable as a runner and passer than most of the quarterbacks who have moved on to the next level lately. Daniels is positioned to become a very good NFL starter in a spread-based passing attack.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Challenging evaluation with top-flight measurables and tools but inconsistencies that create a lower floor. Maye’s size and arm talent jump off the tape immediately. He can make every throw, but he will try to make throws that he shouldn’t have attempted. The gunslinger mentality creates a fearlessness that can turn into interceptions, but it will also allow him to win in tight windows and make splash throws that get crowds (and evaluators) on their feet. He leaves too many throws on the back shoulder or hip and needs to learn when to take some sauce off the throw to make it more catchable. There is an undeniable energy to Maye’s game that can create momentum or turn chaotic when plays come off-schedule for him. The combination of traits and tape make him a boom/bust prospect who might need patient management and coaching to help shepherd him toward his potential.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Williams’ play is highlighted by rare escapability paired with the talent to exploit defenses once the play breaks down. He’s not tall, but he is well-built, with an arm to challenge defenses across the field. He can be a high-impact playmaker on the go or an effective pocket passer when he allows himself to trust his eyes on second and third reads. He can improve his accuracy and placement on intermediate and deep throws, but he’s unlikely to be known for pinpoint accuracy. It is admirable that he looks to keep his eyes up and make throws outside the pocket, but he’ll make things easier on himself early in his pro career by becoming a more decisive scrambler to move the sticks and carry on to the next set of downs. Williams is tremendously talented but often bites off too much responsibility and plays off-schedule. He has a good chance to hit new heights with a surrounding cast he trusts, but greater self-discipline and a well-structured offense might be needed to help him become a quarterback who can elevate a franchise to championship contention.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Cam Hart is a man/zone versatile corner whose athletic intangibles showcase an explosive and fluid perimeter defender…Concerns remain about his confidence with his back turned to the quarterback. He will sometimes grab and pull to keep wideouts within his frame if stacked. His length needs to be utilized more often vs. the run to limit perimeter gains. He can play high at times, but his explosive trigger and speed make up for any potential false steps. Overall, Hart is an athletic, refined defender who showcases outstanding footwork and maturity in man coverage.” (Source)

    2023 production: 12 games, 17 tackles, 3.5 TFLs, 2 sacks, PBU

    Scouting report: “Gabe Hall has had a unique trajectory in his career. He was very productive early in his career and then enjoyed a breakout season as a redshirt junior, firmly putting himself on NFL teams’ radars. He then came back as a redshirt senior but lost playing time, was used as a rotational player, and struggled to make an impact on the game. Hall has very good length and is a versatile player…He lacks explosiveness off the ball and is essentially a one-dimensional player who offers little to nothing in the passing game. He lacks rush moves, doesn’t showcase a quick first step, and is just an average bull rusher. Furthermore, he doesn’t have a firm anchor when faced with double teams in the run game. NFL teams might value him because of his length and motor.” (Source)

    Career accolades: Orange Bowl MVP (2022)

    Scouting report: “Joe Milton III’s A-trait is his arm strength. He can send passes 60+ yards without a crow hop and with the flick of his wrist. He has easy velocity to drive throws in the middle of the field and into tight windows. Milton can make every single throw in the book and make it look effortlessly. He excels in targeting the short to intermediate areas of the defense. 2023 was his most efficient season as a passer…Milton is a “fastball pitcher”. He can throw the 100 mph heat seeker but lacks a change-up, curve, sliders, etc. He tried to alter the tempo and pacing of his throws especially deep down the field but missed the mark more times than not. He struggles with finding the right amount of air, and touch to put on passes down the field. His accuracy and ball placement remain inconsistent. Milton’s mechanics are a big part of the issue. He tends to over-stride when stepping into throws leading to poor ball placement and high passes. When pressured, if Milton doesn’t use his legs, he will stand flat-footed to throw from his upper body…Milton projects as a day 2/3 developmental prospect. The physical tools teams want are there but reining is needed to see how consistent he can be as an accurate passer.” (Source)

    Career accolades: First-team All-ACC (2023), First-team All-MAC (2022)

    Scouting report: “Walker is a tall, long wideout with outstanding speed and hands. He missed the start of the 2023 season because the NCAA did not initially grant him eligibility to play following his transfer from Kent State. Even so, in the eight games he did play in (after the NCAA cleared him), he managed to put up strong numbers: 41 receptions for 699 yards (17.0 per catch) and seven touchdowns. He is very sudden in his release, and he gains ground quickly with a long, gliding stride. He is at his best working on vertical routes and crossers. He uses his speed to separate, and he can high-point the ball with ease. He tracks the ball naturally over his shoulder. He flashes the ability to drop his weight quickly and work back to the quarterback. However, that really wasn’t his role in the North Carolina offense. He is very explosive after the catch. Overall, Walker is a gifted, field-stretching target and should be ready to impact his NFL team immediately.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Also visible on Rattler’s tape are glimpses of promise as a processor. He has the capacity to progress from read to read, as well as react quickly to stimulus after landing on successive reads. He can also place throws to WR leverage, leading receivers for RAC…Ultimately, the only thing keeping Rattler from locking in early-round capital is a lack of elite operational consistency. His situational precision can improve at times. His pocket habits can be unpredictable, and he’ll sometimes force poor decisions under pressure.” (Source)

He combines vision and patience to find his way into the open field. He does a good finding and hitting cutback lanes. Laube displays shifty, elusive abilities to force missed tackles in space. He has a good burst and acceleration through open running lanes. Laube is a fantastic receiving threat out of the backfield…Laube projects as a change of pace, passing down RB.

    Scouting report: “Melton projects as a starting CB with slot/nickel flexibility. With his toughness and run support, playing him in the nickel in three-cornerback sets is best for the defense. Melton seems to be his best in man when he can dictate the action with bump-and-run coverage. That said, he can be a strong zone cornerback as well. Versatility is key for Melton’s draft stock.” (Source)

    Career accolades: Unanimous All-American (2023), First-team All-Pac-12 (2022-2023), Lombardi Award (2023), Ted Hendricks Award (2023)

    Scouting report: “Latu has ideal size, quickness and instincts for the position. As a pass rusher, he can win with his quick get-off or a variety of hand moves. He has an excellent feel for when offensive tackles overset or underset and adjusts accordingly. He doesn’t have elite speed or power, but he wins with technique, bend and savvy. He can corner well at the top of his rush and is an outstanding finisher. Against the run, he’s been inconsistent when it comes to setting the edge. He’s shown the ability to shoot his hands, leverage blockers and hold the point of attack. However, there are other times his pad level is too high and he gets controlled. His effort is outstanding to chase, against both run and pass. Latu did have serious medical issues while at the University of Washington. Overall, Latu is the most skilled pass rusher in this class and should have an immediate impact at the next level.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “Davis can step into any offense right away and be a contributor. He has experience with all types of run-game concepts, and he has the size and efficient rushing skills to be a quality runner sooner than later. Davis’ lack of explosive traits may limit his ceiling, but he checks all of the boxes to be a solid three-down back.” (Source)

    2023 production: 9 games, 30 catches, 478 yards, 2 TDs

    Career accolades: Second-team All-SEC (2022)

    Scouting report: “McConkey is a slightly undersized receiver with excellent speed, quickness and polish. He lines up both outside and in the slot. He is quick off the line, and he understands how to attack the leverage of his man. He changes speed throughout the route and is efficient getting into and out of breaks. He will utilize head nods to sell routes and create separation. He has an excellent feel to settle in space versus zone coverage. He has strong hands to pluck balls thrown away from his frame, and he is quick to transition up the field. After the catch, he relies on his quickness to make defenders miss. Overall, McConkey isn’t quite as physical as former Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin, but I see a lot of similarities in their route running and instincts. I could see McConkey having a similar career.” (Source)

    Scouting report: “McCaffrey, the younger brother of San Francisco 49ers star RB Christian McCaffrey, started his career as a QB at Nebraska, but he’s wasted little time becoming a top-flight receiver. Two years into his WR transition, the younger McCaffrey logged 68 catches for 963 yards and 12 touchdowns and added 13 carries for 101 yards in 2023. At 6’2″, 200 pounds, McCaffrey has smooth athleticism and body control, and his usage versatility could make him a discount Puka Nacua.” (Source)
