Cp6. Dallas Turner. Dallas Turner. player. 523. . EDGE. Walter Camp All-American. 6.

Dallas Turner, the edge rusher from Alabama, has had an outstanding season. Known for his agility and speed, Turner has been a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. His knack for forcing turnovers and disrupting plays increases his prospects for the NFL draft.

Season Statistics:

  • Total Tackles: 49
  • Total Sacks: 9
  • Forced Fumbles: 2

Ideal Draft Position: 

Turner is the Will Anderson Jr. of 2024. We could see a team move up with the Bears and grab him, but he will likely go fourth to the Commanders or drop to the Saints or Falcons at 11 or 12. 

. T’Vondre Sweat. player. . DT. 2023 Outland Trophy Award winner. 7. 467. Cp7. T’Vondre Sweat

T'Vondre Sweat, the defensive tackle from Texas, has been a revelation this season. His strength and ability to disrupt the opponent's offensive line make him a desired prospect for the NFL draft.

Season Statistics:

  • Total Tackles: 42
  • Total Sacks: 2
  • Pass Deflections: 5

Ideal Draft Position

Sweat will have to impress in the Playoffs, or he could slip to the mid-second round. He is the third-ranked DT in the Draft behind Jer'Zhan Newton and Ohio State's Tyleik Williams. The Jaguars on the 26th or the Cowboys with the 28th would be a win for Sweat.
