The 2024 NFL Draft is expected to feature many great offensive linemen. For many teams, this is just in time, as the offensive line play across the league worsens, resulting in key injuries and overall bad football. Offensive tackle in particular is deep in the 2024 NFL Draft, and JC Latham is included in this great pool of talent.

We know he is going to hear his name announced early, but who is going to draft Latham? There seem to be several teams interested and in the mix. Below, we will give a JC Latham draft projection from many industry experts, as well as look at a JC Latham draft profile and scouting report.

JC Latham Combine Results

While JC Latham was measured at the NFL Combine, he didn’t participate in any of the drills. He has, however, lost 20 pounds since the season in training for the NFL Draft. Latham credited at least some of the weight loss to cutting down on Five Guys, his favorite meal.

JC Latham Scouting Report


JC Latham is an offensive line coach’s wet dream. At just 21 years old, he has a lot of improving yet to do, but he is already damn good. He is a human bulldozer, but his footwork and technique also show up in his protection. And since we last saw him play, Latham dropped 20 pounds. Not only does this show a positive work ethic, but he should be able to move even better in space now.

Latham has little wasted movement, playing with great balance. He has the length to play tackle, and he has the power to be a Day 1 starter as well. JC Latham is a well-coached player who has the potential to develop into a very bright star at right tackle, and he has a bit of experience at guard if need be.

From my personal perspective as an OL coach and scout, I believe JC Latham could be the best offensive lineman of this draft class.


While Latham does have the power to start right away, he needs to add a little more strength to his lower body, and hopefully his recent weight loss didn’t lead to a strength loss. He needs to show a bit more patience when engaging on run plays, and he also has shown the tendency to open his outside shoulder too quickly in pass sets. Again, these are coachable weaknesses.
