This Week's 2024 NFL Draft Watch Prospects Of The Week

Washington QB Michael Penix Jr. vs. Michigan State

Wk Grade: Elite

Summary: Penix was elite on the road vs. Michigan State on Saturday, completing 77% of his throws for almost 500 yards and 4 TD's. He did not have a single turnover-worthy play, according to PFF.

UNC QB Drake Maye vs. Minnesota

Wk Grade: Near Elite

Summary: Maye was not elite overall because of two INT's, but he was efficient overall, completing 73% of his throws for more than 400 yards and 2TD's in the win vs. Minnesota.

UNC QB Shedeur Sanders vs. Colorado State

Wk Grade: Elite

Summary: Another week, another elite performance. Sanders led the Buffaloes to a come-from-behind 4th QTR win vs. rival Colorado State. He completed 81% of his 47 total pass attempts for 347 passing yards and 4 TD's. Sanders turned on "Brady Mode" this week. What will he do next?

Notre Dame RB Audric Estime vs. Central Michigan

Wk Grade: Elite

Summary: Estime is a wrecking ball. Against CMU, he rushed for 176 yards on 20 rush attempts with 108 yards after contact.

Alabama RB Roydell Williams vs. USF

Wk Grade: Elite

Summary: Alabama had to find someone to lean on vs. USF, as their QB situation is a disaster. Williams accumulated 128 yards on 16 attempts, averaging 8 yds per rush. We expect he will continue to get a heavier workload while Bama tries to figure out their QB situation.

Michigan WR Roman Wilson vs. Bowling Green

Wk Grade: Elite

Summary: Wilson has been Michigan's top receiver on the year through three weeks. He has 6 total TD's, and he hit pay dirt once again vs. Bowling Green.

Florida State TE Jaheim Bell vs. Boston College

Wk Grade: Elite

Summary: Bell was targeted 5 times, caught them all, and scored a TD against the Eagles on Saturday.

Ohio State Edge Jack Sawyer vs. WKU

Wk Grade: Elite

Summary: Sawyer finished the day vs. WKU with 7 total pressures on the QB and an elite PFF grade.
