2024 NFL draft grades: Every pick in fourth round

Carolina continues to surround quarterback Bryce Young with talent in this draft. Sanders offers a big body with 4.6 speed to upgrade the pass catchers. He’ll need to improve his blocking but offers great value as an F tight end at the top of the fourth round.

Franklin reunites with college teammate Bo Nix in Denver. He’s a vertical threat with 4.4 speed and reliable hands that he showed off with the Ducks. He’ll be a field-stretcher but there are concerns about his size at 6 feet, 1 inch and just 176 pounds, making him one of the leanest wide receivers in the class.

New England bolsters its offensive line again in the fourth round with one of the longer guards in the draft. Robinson has some of the longest arms and biggest hands in the class. His aggressive play style will be a boost in the running game but he’s more of a project in pass protection. He’s at least a good depth piece for the Patriots to start his career.

Nicknamed “Rabbit,” Taylor-Demerson was one of the more productive safeties in college football during his time with the Red Raiders. He led Texas Tech in interceptions for the last three years and had 33 career passes defended. His speed and instincts make him another good addition to the Cardinals’ defensive backfield.

Eboigbe has the size (6-foot-4, 290 pounds) to greatly improve the Chargers’ run defense early in Los Angeles. His length and motor make him a potential option rushing the passer. There are medical concerns, though, as Eboigbe missed most of 2022 with a season-ending neck injury. So long as his medical tests check out, he offers plenty of upside.
