2024 NFL Draft offensive tackle class ranking No. 15-19

15. Matt Goncalves, Pittsburgh: Pittsburgh offensive tackle Matt Goncalves suffered a season-ending toe injury of the fourth game of the season this year. However, it looks like he will be taking part in the East-West Shrine game so this injury shouldn’t be a major issue with him going into the 2024 NFL Draft. When healthy Goncalves is a physical tackle who is a strong pass blocker having not allowed a sack in 2022. He also shows the strength to open up running lanes and if he learns to play with better pad level he could be even better in this area. Along with playing with better pad level he also needs to do a better job of running his feet on contact, as he currently falls off blocks to often. Draft Grade: Fifth Round

16. Andrew Coker, TCU: Teams that love long offensive tackles will be happy with what they see in TCU offensive tackle Andrew Coker. Coker who comes in 6-foot-7 and has 34 ⅜-inch arms has the raw tools to develop into a quality NFL offensive tackle. In addition to his impressive measurables, he also has the versatility the NFL is looking for having played both left and right tackle during his time in Fort Worth. One concern scouts will have with him though is that he gets off balance too often. Draft Grade: Fifth Round

17. Walter Rouse, Oklahoma: While Oklahoma’s Tyler Guyton is the higher graded NFL Draft prospect Walter Rouse actually had the better season. According to Pro Football Focus, Rouse had a 83.8 pass blocking grade and 66.2 grade as a run blocker both of which was the top numbers for Sooners offensive linemen. These numbers also show that Rouse was a better pass blocker than run blocker, which is the same opinion NFL scouts will have after watching his film. As a pass blocker he uses his strength to control the defender once he has his hands on him, and is a player that is very hard to bullrush. When it comes to run blocking he is not as aggressive as he should be and tends to catch his defender more than fire off the ball and knock him backwards. Draft Grade: Fifth Round

18. Garret Greenfield, South Dakota State: The top small school offensive tackle in the 2024 NFL Draft is South Dakota State’s Garret Greenfield. The reason I have him rated so high is the tenacity he plays with. He consistently plays through the whistle and sets the intense tone you want on your offensive line. He also has ideal size coming in at 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds and carries very little fat on this frame. One other positive with him is his versatility having been named an FCS All-American at both right and left tackle. An area he can improve on is quickly getting out of his stance since he can be beaten off the ball at times. Draft Grade: Sixth Round

19. Kiran Amegadjie, Yale: The other FCS offensive tackle to make this list is Yale’s Kiran Amegadjie. While I am not as high on Amegadjie as others are there is no doubt he should get drafted in the 2024 NFL Draft. Like Greenfield, his top trait is his run blocking. He shows elite strength routinely driving his man three of four yards off the ball. This power should allow him to be a good fit in a gap-blocking scheme as either an offensive tackle or offensive guard which he played in 2021. One reason I only have a sixth-round grade on him is he is a limited athlete who possesses only average feet. He is also coming off a season-ending quad injury. Draft Grade: Sixth Round
