‘The Beast’ Guide to the 2024 NFL Draft: Scouting Reports and Player Rankings by Dane Brugler

Finally! It’s here. I’m excited to share this year’s draft guide with everyone. I don’t remember who first called him “The Beast,” but I use that nickname as motivation to make sure this first annual edition lives up to the nickname – and I don’t think I’ve let you down this year.

Every NFL prospect is a puzzle. And it’s the scout’s job to find the pieces of the puzzle to create as clear a picture of each player as possible. Those puzzle pieces include everything from the player’s physical traits to his mental makeup to the details of his upbringing—and everything in between.

This is exactly how I attack this draft guide. Over the past 18 months, I’ve gathered as many pieces of the puzzle as I can, through countless hours of studying tapes and conversations with prospects, scouts and other sources.

With NFL-verified testing information for over 1,900 prospects and tons of background information and analysis on hundreds of those players, I hope everyone views “The Beast” as the most comprehensive resource guide available for the 2024 NFL Draft.

Special thanks to Chris Burke and our team of editors, as well as our design team, who helped make this year’s draft guide a reality.
