2024 NFL Draft Position Rankings: Top 5 Interior Offensive Lineman | Pre NFL Combine

We are entering the next stage of the NFL Draft player rankings process. As always, I start with the top 5 quarterbacks (QB), top 5 running backs (RB), top 10 wide receivers (WR), and the top 5 tight ends (TE) before diving into the updated offensive line and top defender grades.

We evaluate every player using a proprietary grading process that involves film evaluation combined with advanced data. On the back end, our scouting process mirrors the same process deployed by current NFL front-office personnel so that we can deliver the most in-depth player scouting reports available. All of this is currently free (subject to change).
