2024 NFL Draft: First Offensive Lineman Selected Odds, Picks, Predictions

NFL Logo on the Field, 2024 NFL Schedule

The 2024 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday, April 25th. Last season, we saw the first offensive lineman come off the board with the 6th overall pick. With all the QBs this year, the odds are that will not be the case this year, but when will the first offensive lineman go in the 2024 NFL Draft?

2024 NFL Draft: Favorites to be the First Offensive Lineman Selected

Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame, -400

Joe Alt is the highest-rated offensive tackle prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft, so it’s not surprising that he is the favorite to be the first offensive lineman off the board. Alt is 6’9″, weighs 321 pounds, and is forgoing his senior season.

Alt ran a 5.05 40-yard dash, had a 1.73 10-yard split, a 7.31 cone drill, and a 4.51 20-yard shuttle. Alt was given an 85 production score from NFL Next Gen Stats. The Titans have the No. 7 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, and they certainly can use a stalwart tackle.

Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State, +400

Fuaga, a senior at Oregon State, is one of the most highly coveted offensive linemen in the draft. Fuanga is 6’6”, weighs 324 pounds, and was a second-team All-American. He started 12 games at right tackle last season.

Fuanga posted a 5.13 40-yard dash, a 1.77 10-yard split, a 32” vertical jump, and a 9’3” broad jump. Fuanga was given a production score of 83 by NFL Next Gen stats, which ranked 4th of all offensive linemen this past season.

Olumuyiwa Fashanu, OT, Penn State +700

Fashanu was a highly coveted prospect entering this season, and his play did not disappoint. Although he slightly fell down draft boards, his 6’6″, 312-pound frame is built for the NFL. Fashanu recorded a 5.11 40-yard dash, a 1.77 10-yard split, a 32” vertical jump, and a 9’1” broad jump. Fashanu left the combine early due to a thigh injury.

2024 NFL Draft: Best Bets to Make

Joe Alt -400

Laying juice like this is never appealing, but Alt is the pick. The Titans have a glaring hole at both tackle spots, and Alt is the best player available for this team. Regardless of whether Tennessee drafts at seven or not, Alt is still viewed as the No. 1 OL prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft, so he should be the first pick off the board.
