2. Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

An offensive lineman expected to go near the end of Round 1 that might slide is Jordan Morgan from Arizona.

In a typical draft, Morgan could be seen as a top-15 pick. He boasts the ideal size for the position at 6-foot-6 and 320 pounds and has plenty of experience at left tackle. He’s also well-rounded as a blocker but excels in pass coverage thanks to his swift feet and smooth mobility. 

While all that’s true, Morgan doesn’t stand out as a powerhouse blocker with elite traits. Again, that’s fine in normal years but the 2024 draft class has a lot of talent on the offensive line. And some of these players who have less experience than Morgan, Amarius Mims for example, have such high ceilings that they could leap past him. 

With such a loaded class, it’s easy to see the OL-needy teams making their picks early while other teams grab skill-position players who should have gone earlier. If that happens, Dallas could very well see a starting caliber left tackle on the board at No. 56. It won’t be enough to forgive the way they treated the position this offseason but it could still salvage their chances of keeping Dak Prescott from being sacked more than any other quarterback in the league.
