2024 NFL Draft offensive guard rankings

ACC: Christian Mahogany, Boston College: One stat that shows just how valuable Christian Mahogany is that in 2022 when he missed the year due to a torn ACL Boston College finished dead last in the ACC averaging just 63 rushing yards a game. When he was back in the lineup this year the team finished 2nd in the ACC averaging 200 yards a game.

Big 10: Zak Zinter, Michigan: A player who would have gone higher in the draft if not for a season ending injury is Michigan’s Zak Zinter. Zinter who suffered a broken fibula and tibia in the Ohio State game is still recovering from the injury which prevented him from working out for teams.

Big 12: Cooper Beebe, Kansas State: It is hard to find a more decorated offensive lineman in the 2024 NFL Draft than Kansas State’s Cooper Beebe. He was named the Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year in both 2023 and 2021, and is the first offensive lineman in school history to be named a consensus All-American.

Pac 12: Troy Fautanu, Washington: While Washington offensive lineman Troy Fautanu played tackle in college his best position in the NFL is likely guard. The main reason for this is his lack of length. No matter where he plays look for him to be a high-quality starter in the NFL.

SEC: Layden Robinson, Texas A&M: A player who had a much better season this year than in 2022 is Texas A&M’s Layden Robinson. As a junior, he allowed 36 pressures on the year and had just a 56.6 grade from Pro Football Focus. This year he only allowed 16 pressuers, only gave up one sack, and received a much better PFF grade of 69.4.

Non-Power Five: Mason McCormick, South Dakota State: My highest rated small school prospect is South Dakota State offensive guard Mason McCormick. What sticks out with him is his rugged playing style that consistently sees him blocking through the whistle. He is also an impressive athlete who posted some of the best numbers in NFL Combine history.
