2024 NFL Draft Under the Radar Picks

2024 NFL Draft Under the Radar Picks

The 2024 NFL Draft  is just a couple of weeks away. This is an incredibly deep class with a lot of potential steals coming in later rounds. You know the big names like Caleb Williams, Marvin Harrison Jr., and Jayden Daniels. But this is a stacked class and there are lots of under the radar prospects you should keep an eye out for and hope that your team will draft.

Michael Pratt – QB – Tulane

I really like Pratt and while a lot of the QB talk is around the guys at the very top like Williams and Daniels, sometimes there is a guy taken in the 3rd or 4th round that ends up being the best pick in that draft. Pratt isn’t a Power 5 guy, so he didn’t get all the love in the world, but let’s not forget the win over USC in the Cotton Bowl. He has played for four seasons and was the AAC Offensive Player of the Year this final season, throwing for 2,406 yards, 22 touchdowns, and five picks. Best Fit: Seattle Seahawks

Frank Gore Jr. – RB – Southern Miss

What isn’t to like about that name? Gore Jr. is in fact the son of Frank Gore, one of the all-time great running backs in the game of football. Gore Jr. has flown under the radar a little bit thanks to attending a smaller school, but he certainly posted big numbers that will give him a shot to get drafted. He has consistently been an all-conference guy throughout college and this past season, he ran for 1,131 yards and 10 touchdowns while catching 27 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns. Gore Sr. has plenty of goodwill with the many teams he played for and I’m sure one of them will be eager to give his son a shot. Best Fit: Buffalo Bills

Jaden Hicks – S – Washington State

If you happened to watch a Washington State football game this season (you likely didn’t) you’d have heard Hicks’ name mentioned nonstop when the Cougars were on defense. He is the definition of a playmaker which is why I enjoyed watching him so much and why he sticks out in the draft. Hicks had 79 total tackles, six tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions and four defended passes. He will need a year or so to sit and learn but could make an immediate impact on special teams and could grow into a successful starter. Best Fit: Atlanta Falcons

Trevin Wallace – LB – Kentucky

Wallace pops when you watch the film of any Kentucky game. He is the kind of guy that defensive coordinators crave when they think about the linebacker position. He has ridiculous strength and was a weightlifting champion in high school who has converted to burst and speed on the football field. It was evident his past season when he put up 80 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. Wallace is a guy that no running back wants to see when he’s in the hole. Best Fit: Indianapolis Colts
