2024 NFL Combine results: 6 standout offensive line draft prospects

The 2024 NFL Combine concluded its televised protection on Sunday, and while there are a couple of small screening notes to watch on for Monday, the occasion is nearing its conclusion. After each position group finished its screening, we evaluated the potential customers’ efficiencies and recognized the standouts who would harmonize the Detroit Lions.

If you’ve missed out on any of our previous Combine evaluation series posts, you can get captured up here:

Next up: let’s have a look at the offending tackles who stuck out on Sunday.

Taliese Fuaga, Oregon State (6-foot-6, 324 pounds)

NFL predicted position: Any beginning take on or safeguard position

Fuaga is most likely a top-half of the first-round choice, however his capability to play guard must make him a gamer the Lions must think about trading up for. With instant concerns at guard and prospective long-lasting issues at take on, Fuaga has the variety and prospective effect to instantly fill both functions. His unofficial 9.44 RAS (at tackle) is elite.

In drills, he revealed that he is a tidy mover with dexterity and power for days, his switch is elite which is specifically obvious on pulls and kick-outs. Everything looks simple when he’s on the relocation, yet he’s a stud in pass defense and can anchor from both take on areas.

Kingsley Suamataia, BYU (6-foot-4 12, 326 pounds)

NFL predicted position: Any take on or safeguard position

As the cousin of Lions All-Pro take on Penei Sewell, Suamataia was anticipated to reveal out athletically at the Combine and he did not dissatisfy, scoring an unofficial 9.14 RAS. Another tackle/guard hybrid, Suamataia is not as refined as Fuaga however the Lions likewise aren’t going to need to pay a cost to go up and get him.

In drills, Suamataia showed that he is a smooth and nimble mover (In my notes, I composed “smooth” a minimum of 5 times), has uncommon velocity when pulling, and can merely go out and pursue protectors. His balance appears when kick moving in pass defense and when moving laterally. His video game movie revealed prospective however his Combine efficiency highlighted a lot more upside.

Blake Fisher, Notre Dame (6-foot-6, 310 pounds)

NFL predicted position: Swing take on

Fisher is young and unpolished, yet knowledgeable right tackle who is still establishing his video game. He might be a year far from beginning, and will likely cost a Day 2 choice to get, however if the Lions are certainly in the market for a pure offensive tackle who can contribute, he’s a severe choice to think about. In on-field drills, I was impressed with his frame (he’s huge and long) and his fast feet, specifically in drops. That left me with the impression he might be a swing OT3 choice throughout his novice season and a possible beginning right take on in year 2.

Roger Rosengarten, Washington (6-foot-5 12, 308 pounds)

NFL predicted position: Swing take on

Another college right take on with swing capacity, Rosengarten might likewise supply groups with situational guard have fun with time to establish—which was obvious in the “long slide” drill where he revealed power in his motions and got ground in a rush. His unofficial 9.59 RAS indicate his athletic ceiling, however he requires more developmental development on the field before he will be thought about a starter-level possibility.

Brandon Coleman, TCU (6-foot-4 12, 313 pounds)

NFL predicted position: Tackle or guard

Coleman didn’t take part in on-field drills at the Combine however he has a near-perfect RAS and tackle/guard variety, making him somebody to watch on progressing.

Garrett Greenfield, South Dakota State (6-foot-6, 311 pounds)

NFL predicted position: Swing take on

The sleeper of the offensive take on group, Greenfield turned heads with a Combine record 38.5-inch vertical dive. That surge ability likewise appeared in his 1.77-second 10-yard-split, showing his capacity to leave his set rapidly. In on-field drills, he searched in control of his big frame, revealed great capability to kick slide, and was smoother in his pulls than his screening ratings would suggest. With experience at both right and left take on, Greenfield has the prospective to be a swing choice early in his profession, however his variety to play guard is difficult to assess at this phase.
