2024 NFL Rookies Updates After Minicamp! Place a bet on NFL football with the best and latest odds at YouWager.lv now.

Minicamps have been required for the past two weeks for all 32 NFL teams. Examined closely were a few notable omissions, movement on position battles, and veterans donning new jerseys from June’s camps.

It’s always exciting to watch the next generation of players in the league go through their early-season workouts at this time of year. Examining the record six quarterbacks chosen among the top 12 picks in the 2024 NFL draft in detail will become more important as summer draws near. We have provided our preliminary thoughts on each of the 32 first-rounders, grouping the entries according to how Round 1 transpired:

1. 2024 NFL Rookies, Chicago Bears: Caleb Williams

1st on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Caleb Williams, for the Chicago Bears.

The Bears did not keep anything back from the rookie quarterback as he began to understand the offense, and head coach Matt Eberflus was impressed with his ability to “chunk information, put it into buckets, and operate” in the spring. During OTAs and minicamp, coaches encouraged Williams to experiment with different passes to see what windows he could hit and to ensure his footwork matched when he threw the ball. Against an experienced defense that taxed the rookie quarterback with movement and disguises, the 22-year-old quarterback was bound to struggle in practice, yet Williams would occasionally outperform his peers. Linebacker T.J. Edwards said, “He moved us a few times with his eyes.”Tremaine Edmunds and I were extremely excited on the first day, but he’s incredibly impressive.

2. 2024 NFL Rookies, Washington Commanders: Jayden Daniels

2nd on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Jayden Daniels, for the Washington Commanders.

Daniels never seemed overwhelmed or bewildered during spring exercises, which is one of the main reasons the Commanders assigned him to lead the first group for the necessary minicamp. Daniels arrived at 5:45 a.m. every day for his own walk-through session and video work, displaying to coaches and teammates his level of preparation. But he seemed to be competent at anticipating the ball’s path and carrying out his progressions. He is exactly the player they believed they had drafted up until this moment. Coach Dan Quinn said, “He just radiates confidence.” “He plays with the humility of a young player, aware that he still has a lot to learn, yet having a strong comprehension of what we’re doing.

3. 2024 NFL Rookies, New England Patriots: Drake Maye

3rd, on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies, we have Drake Maye, for the New England Patriots.

After beginning spring practice as the third option behind Bailey Zappe and Jacoby Brissett, Maye finished second in the mandated minicamp. He became more calm with each session, and to cap off his spring, he threw a touchdown pass to fellow rookie Ja’Lynn Polk with only a few seconds left, the ball on the 5-yard line, and bragging rights at stake until training camp began. “Every day he’s gotten better,” Brissett added. He’s always looking for new methods to improve, and it shows in his incredible throws.

4. 2024 NFL Rookies, Arizona Cardinals: Marvin Harrison Jr.

4th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies, we have Marvin Harrison Jr, for the Arizona Cardinals.

Harrison demonstrated how fast he established himself as the Cardinals’ top receiver by leading the way through open minicamp drills. He has made the difficult appear simple, even as he has simplified traditional plays. Harrison’s transition to the NFL has been “pretty seamless,” according to coach Jonathan Gannon, and teammates have praised the fourth-round choice on both sides of the ball. A fellow receiver, Michael Wilson, praised Harrison as “special,” while cornerback Garrett Williams said Harrison matches all of his standards.

5. 2024 NFL Rookies, Los Angeles Chargers: Joe Alt

5th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Joe Alt, for the Los Angeles Chargers.

Line play is difficult to evaluate during minicamp and OTAs since there are no pads and players move at half pace. However, head coach Jim Harbaugh has already designated Alt a starter on the offensive line, signaling that he has made an impression on the club before actual football games begin. Although Alt has primarily lined up at right tackle and would most likely play there this season, Harbaugh did not specify positions. At training camp the following month, OLB Joey Bosa showed enthusiasm for “laying a helmet” on Alt to ensure he is ready.

6. 2024 NFL Rookies, New York Giants: Malik Nabers

6th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies, we have Malik Nabers, for the New York Giants.

The Giants’ number one choice had an instant impact. “He can do everything, really,” quarterback Daniel Jones said. With the first team offense, Nabers spent the spring demonstrating his unique talent and making plays all over the field, which the Giants hope is a sign of things to come.

7. 2024 NFL Rookies, Tennessee Titans: JC Latham

7th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have JC Latham, for the Tennessee Titans.

Latham took over as the starting left tackle early on and was present for all first-team workouts and OTAs. When not playing, Latham is regularly seen cheering his teammates and even offering advise to some of the other rookies. His willingness to put in extra time outside of practice, as well as his work ethic, have greatly impressed the coaching staff. According to offensive coordinator Nick Holz, “JC has maybe the best energy of anyone on this team.”His enthusiasm spreads quickly. He did an excellent job of executing his footwork. He has improved and is now in control of his game. He is quite powerful.

8. 2024 NFL Rookies, Atlanta Falcons: Michael Penix Jr.

8th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Michael Penix Jr, for the Atlanta Falcons.

Penix, taken at No. 8 after the Falcons had already signed Kirk Cousins, quickly became the topic of the draft. This spring, Penix has had glimpses of brilliance, especially on the deep ball. However, he has battled with consistency, failing to complete several touch passes. Not surprising for a rookie quarterback. Penix has mostly employed the team’s substitutes, and veteran Taylor Heinicke appears to be Cousins’ backup. The Falcons are fine with it and hope Penix is learning a lot. Coach Raheem Morris praised Penix as having “a humility that shows every time he speaks with you guys, every time he walks into the building, every time he sits in the meeting room.”

9. 2024 NFL Rookies, Chicago Bears: Rome Odunze

9th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Rome Odunze, for the Chicago Bears.

Odunze missed three weeks of play in May due to a minor hamstring injury, but he continued to improve as he learned from experienced wide outs DJ Moore and Keenan Allen. To capitalize on the No. 9 pick’s versatility and create mismatches that will benefit the offense, the Bears have lined him up at all three receiving positions (X, Z, and slot). They’ve even tried Odunze on punt returns, where he had three returns for 87 yards and one touchdown in limited action against Washington. Odunze has impressed coaches with his ability to pick up the Chicago offense; he can run a play on his own and recite the playcall when he enters the field for a specific play. “I think that’s a really good way for him, and I think that was really mature on his part to be able to actually discern and understand how he learns best,” the head coach, Matt Eberflus, said.

10. 2024 NFL Rookies, Minnesota Vikings: J.J. McCarthy

10th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have JJ McCarthy, for the Minnesota Vikings.

McCarthy appeared to be a quarterback with the talent of a top-10 pick but the maturity of a 21-year-old. Put differently: Exactly what one would have expected. Against aggressive coverage, he was occasionally able to slip darts into tight windows. On other occasions during the workout, he bounced throws to receivers with no defenders in sight. McCarthy always maintained the correct stance. “Failure is unavoidable in sports,” he declared. Simply said, you must learn from them and those temporary setbacks without being emotionally attached to them.

11. 2024 NFL Rookies, New York Jets: Olu Fashanu

11th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Olu Fashanu, for the New York Jets.

The Jets have chosen Fashanu to be their long-term left tackle replacement, and he is backing up former Cowboys standout Tyron Smith. “For now,” that is the strategy, according to coach Robert Saleh. To put it another way, if they believe he would benefit another position, a temporary switch is not out of the question. During a minicamp team meeting, the coaches picked out Fashanu for his improvement in a specific area. “A great mover,” according to Saleh. Fashanu’s mobility allows him to flourish in a zone-based scheme. When the pads are on, people will have a better sense of his physicality.

12. 2024 NFL Rookies, Denver Broncos: Bo Nix

Twelfth on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies, we have Bo Nix, for the Denver Broncos.

Nix, Zach Wilson, and Jarrett Stidham are battling for the starting spot. Coach Sean Payton balanced the workload evenly among the three guys during the offseason program, which ended on Wednesday with the second minicamp practice. Nix has exhibited precision and familiarity with the playbook, particularly on the short and intermediate routes. So far, Payton has consistently commended Nix’s maturity. There was a lot of installation in a short period of time. We gave [the quarterbacks] a lot, including all three of these players. All things considered, it’s what we saw and evaluated about him prior to the draft, which is positive.” Nix and the other three quarterbacks will most likely work one-on-one with the majority of the team’s pass catchers in early July to build experience before training camp.

13. Las Vegas Raiders: Brock Bowers

13th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Brock Bowers, for the Las Vegas Raiders.

Bowers’ running style resembles that of a fluid wideout rather than the classic ponderous tight end. Davante Adams, a three-time All-Pro receiver, has also expressed an interest in Bowers when he is not catching passes during practice. Adams was so pleased by Bowers’ no-nonsense manner off the field that he gave him a nickname. That’s “BM,” dude,” Adams said. That person is the ‘Business Man.’ He is only interested with football. Speaking to the newcomers, I tried to make him laugh by sharing a joke. He just sat there, indifferent and not laughing. This is exactly who BM is. I understand his point of view.

14. New Orleans Saints: Taliese Fuaga

14th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Taliese Fuaga, for the New Orleans Saints.

Fuaga immediately joined the first team as a left tackle. According to Saints offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak, Fuaga has worked tirelessly to boost his prospects of playing time, and his skill set has already shown in the early stages of the summer. “It all changes when the pads go on, but he’s made of the right stuff so I’m not worried about him,” Kubiak told me. Trevor Penning, a 2022 first-round pick, was a left tackle before switching to the right side this season, thus Fuaga and Penning, who played right tackle in college, have leaned on one another.

15. Indianapolis Colts: Laiatu Latu

15th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Laiatu Latu, for the Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts are optimistic about Latu’s chances of success because they have already seen some of the characteristics he exhibited while at UCLA transfer to the NFL. According to defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, “He’s pretty polished, which is something we noticed during the draft process.” Latu has showed his versatility as a pass-rusher, but he still needs to improve his countermoves, which are critical when facing skilled pass-protectors during the regular season. Latu should be playing in obvious pass-rush situations, which will prepare him for future high sack totals.

16. Seattle Seahawks: Byron Murphy II

16th on our list of the 2024 NFL Rookies updates, we have Byron Murphy II, for the Seattle Seahawks.

How he has fared thus far: When Murphy remarked at the end of rookie minicamp that he needed to improve his physical condition, coach Mike Macdonald raised his eyebrows. Although the true test of a lineman will not be known until training camp when the pads are on, Murphy has already received positive feedback, including this one from Leonard Williams: “It’s great to see that he already understands the game.” Many rookies and first-round picks have all of the physical traits but lack football expertise. In comparison, he appeared to have it under control already. Thus, they did an excellent job teaching him football over in Texas. He just works extremely hard, too. The biggest compliment I can give someone is that they put forth a lot of effort.

17. Minnesota Vikings: Dallas Turner

Turner has, as much as anyone can before pads come on, looked like the edge rusher and all-field player that pre-draft projections predicted. The most notable incident happened during a press-only practice, as left tackle Christian Darrisaw reported. Danielle Hunter, a four-time Pro Bowl pass-rusher who had 87.5 sacks in eight seasons with the Vikings before signing a free agent contract with the Texans this spring, was another offensive lineman who Turner tested with a spin move faster than any of them had seen, according to Darrisaw.

18. Cincinnati Bengals: Amarius Mims

Mims took advantage of RT Trent Brown’s first-team reps, who was absent from all save the mandatory minicamp. As a projected backup, Mims will have time to establish himself in the league. However, he has met all of Coach Zac Taylor’s requirements thus far. “Consistently doing it over training camp and blocking people and being able to react very quickly,” Taylor recalled. That’s the part I’m interested in watching to see how he handles things.

19. Los Angeles Rams: Jared Verse

The Rams saw Verse’s work ethic and excitement for football on tape during the pre-draft process, and defensive coordinator Chris Shula remarked that Verse has “been as advertised” in spring. Even though it can be difficult to evaluate a player without pads, head coach Sean McVay had “great admiration” for the first-round pick. “He’s done a great job of really imposing his will [and] continuing to learn,” McVay told me.

20. Pittsburgh Steelers: Troy Fautanu

Fautanu spent the majority of his career at Washington playing left tackle, but he spent a significant amount of time in the offseason program practicing at right tackle. When the team returns to training camp in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, next month, he expects to compete at right tackle. Troy has taken up a lot of the different techniques quickly, according to offensive line coach Pat Meyer. Because the game plays at a different pace and we haven’t put pads on yet, it’ll be tough to rate him until we are at camp. However, his timing has really improved in terms of get-off and run game, sets, aggressive hand gestures, and other areas of the game. He has progressed significantly since rookie minicamp.

21. Miami Dolphins: Chop Robinson

How he has fared thus far: With Bradley Chubb and Jaylan Phillips ahead of him, Robinson is unlikely to start if the Dolphins remain healthy. Nonetheless, Miami will need its first-round choice to be able to contribute to its pass-rush rotation as soon as possible, given that Phillips and Chubb are still recovering from season-ending injuries. As Chubb and Phillips return, he has learned a lot throughout spring practice, but he is still developing. After working out throughout the winter, Robinson indicated that he had “100%” improved and now has the necessary muscle memory. Robinson admitted on draft night that he has to improve his hand placement during pass rushes.

22. Philadelphia Eagles: Quinyon Mitchell

He has primarily played outside cornerback for the second team, however he has occasionally ran dime packages for the first team. Despite coming up from the Mid-American Conference, he looked like he belonged and received extensive press throughout the spring. Mitchell, who is normally reserved, surprised A.J. Brown during a rare rep by calling the route he ran “trash.” Brown said, “It was funny to hear from him.” “Okay, I would like to see that,” I told him. You need to step up because he won’t be playing against me, but against other players, and I want to see him compete. I said, “All right, you made the initial move; now you need to support it.” You will need to walk the walk.

23. Jacksonville Jaguars: Brian Thomas Jr.

Offensive coordinator Press Taylor agreed with quarterback Trevor Lawrence that he was pleased with Thomas’ quick adjustment to the offense, but he also expressed a want to hear more from the former LSU standout. “He doesn’t speak much. As a result, you’re looking for feedback because you’re not always sure,” Taylor explained. Do you know what we’re saying? So far, it has always translated really well on the field. In other words, he is grasping it in some way. To gain a deeper understanding of his opinions, we’d like to hear from him more frequently. Do you believe this makes sense? How do you explain this? He usually nods and stares at you before going out on the field and doing his job well. That is hopeful.

24. Detroit Lions: Terrion Arnold

Arnold is competing for a starting spot and has begun his first NFL offseason cycle with the confidence of a seasoned veteran, which he has reinforced with his early performance. During team workouts at mandatory minicamp, Arnold demonstrated his great sense of direction by matching up with Lions All-Pro receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown. On day two, he even broke up a pass. In OTAs, Arnold intercepted Jared Goff in a late-game situation. His teammate Derrick Barnes of the Lions has already given him a nickname that refers to both his jersey number and his ability to freeze receivers. Barnes commented on Arnold, “You see it now, call him ‘Sub Zero,’ out there doing what he do.”

25. Green Bay Packers: Jordan Morgan

Morgan’s desire to play left tackle is no secret. The Packers haven’t decided on a position for him yet. He filled in for every offensive line position this summer except center. The Packers would prefer to train all of their offensive linemen as specialists. “We’ve done that with most of our players, and once we get closer to settling in on who those five guys will be, I think you’ll see him at that position more and more often,” Matt LaFleur, the head coach for the Packers, said.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Graham Barton

Barton last played center in 2020, while a freshman at Duke University. He spent the previous three seasons playing left tackle. Given his proximity to defensive tackles and the fact that he touches the ball on every snap, there will be a learning curve when he enters the NFL and advances inside. In reference to Barton’s “heavy load,” head coach Todd Bowles noted that “this will be a good baptism, as far as getting ready for the season.” He appears to have learned a lot, and he is eager to put on pads and demonstrate his athletic abilities. “He is an intelligent man.” Barton, along with the previous season’s starting quarterback Robert Hainsey, has been working with the first team. Quarterback Baker Mayfield responded, “I guess Duke’s academic program is pretty good,” after Barton stated that he has worked hard to gain his trust.

27. Arizona Cardinals: Darius Robinson

Robinson’s football instincts made an early impression on teammates and coaches. Robinson is “doing a pretty good job of where he needs to get aligned, what’s he doing with each call, and then moving around a couple different positions,” according to coach Jonathan Gannon. He does a good job of handling that.” Veteran defensive lineman Justin Jones agreed with Gannon, saying he feels Robinson’s strength and intellect will allow him to stay in the NFL for as long as he wants.

28. Kansas City Chiefs: Xavier Worthy

Because of a strained hamstring, Worthy missed a substantial amount of the offseason training, preventing the Chiefs from getting a detailed look at him. Barring a setback, the Chiefs said they were being cautious and that he should be ready for training camp. Worthy had a mediocre performance during the team’s rookie camp, which came shortly after his draft pick. On the first practice day, he made some terrible passes, but the following day, he made some incredible plays. According to backup quarterback Chris Oladokun, “People were dogging him for the first day.” That only serves as a league greeting. However, Xavier will excel in this offensive approach. He has us all giddy with anticipation. You saw his explosiveness, his ability to spin [defenders] at the top of routes, and his ability to spread the field and get yards after the catch.

29. Dallas Cowboys: Tyler Guyton

It is nearly impossible to evaluate an offensive lineman during an offseason program. Despite not participating in any one-on-one or 11-on-11 drills other than a walk-through pace, the Cowboys have received positive feedback on Guyton’s commitment to work hard and learn new abilities. Right guard Zack Martin commented, “He can really move,” and that Guyton questions the veterans wisely. Guyton did not play a single snap with the starting group this spring, but it’s possible that the coaches wanted him to spend more time with the backups. whether the pads come on during training camp and the coaches determine whether to start him in the starting lineup, the true evaluation of Guyton begins.

30. Baltimore Ravens: Nate Wiggins

Wiggins is an extremely talented runner. In addition to being the quickest defensive player in the NFL combine, he demonstrated a burst of direction-changing skills throughout spring training as the Ravens’ fastest defensive player. Nate Wiggins is too strong for anyone to pass up, according to Ravens defender Trenton Simpson. “I know that for a fact.” Wiggins’ age has been the subject of jokes among teammates. His 21st birthday is not until August. According to safety Kyle Hamilton, “He can’t even drink yet.” “Keep in mind that if he makes a bad play, he won’t be able to drink Mike’s Hard Lemonade.”

31. San Francisco 49ers: Ricky Pearsall

Pearsall has met expectations. He has played punt returner with the Niners, who have used him in a variety of receiving positions across the scheme. This is perhaps his best chance to touch the ball early in his first season. Coach Kyle Shanahan says the team wants Pearsall to be able to step in anywhere in case of an injury, and he has proven to be fairly adaptable thus far. “We’re getting him a lot of reps, getting a lot of different routes, trying all the positions and we’ve been really impressed with how he’s started off.” says Shanahan.

32. Carolina Panthers: Xavier Legette

The 6-foot-3 Legette reminded the Panthers of the large receivers (DK Metcalf, Mike Evans) who were major players in former head coach Dave Canales’ systems, thus Carolina traded into the first round to obtain him. They were also hoping for a receiver who could open deep and create separation. Legette has been everything and will begin immediately, despite a hamstring injury that has limited him. Bryce Young, the quarterback, said: “That combination of size, speed, how explosive he is, the way he comes out of routes, it’s definitely something that I gotta get used to.” We are still fine-tuning the timing, but I am quite excited.
