Group of Five Top NFL Draft Prospects 2024

The curiosity is always there: Which of these college football players I'm watching on TV tonight could play in the NFL soon?

It's true: Many times, a diehard college or NFL fan may stop on a game they have no tie to but are curious to see who the stars might be. And with the Group of Five level having games on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays — as well as the usual Saturday slate — there's a platform where G5 pro prospects can be seen by the whole football-hungry nation. Hey, can you usually watch a Day Two draft pick on a Tuesday night college football game? Then again, how long have you even had college football on Tuesday nights? That's a great opportunity when it comes to the G5 level.

FanBuzz has partnered with DraftScout and DraftScout's creator, Brian Hitterman, for its NFL Draft-related content for Group of Five. The company went public with its work in 2003 and has become one of the most respected scouting services in the nation. More than 3,000 potential prospects are evaluated by hundreds of scouts who provide data to professional teams. Already, the site has its Top 350 out for the 2024 senior class and will update the list with fresh scouting reports as the season goes along, as well as when underclassmen declare after the season. It continues to update right up to the date of the 2024 draft.

Here's a look at the batch of Group of Five prospects who made the most recent July 2023 DraftScout list, along with their projected round, school, and position.
