Quarterback: Brock Purdy, San Francisco 49ers

Lost amid the Brock Pudry talk show discourse is that he is a 24-year-old quarterback with less than two years of starting experience in the NFL. He is still in the formative years of his career and should get better with every passing year, which puts him on pace to make an All-Pro team sooner than later.

The 2022 Mr. Irrelevant finished first in QBR (72.8), third in touchdowns (31), and fifth in passing yards (4,280) last year as the San Francisco 49ers stormed all the way to an overtime loss in the Super Bowl. The scariest part is that Purdy’s numbers would have been even better had he not played the worst game of his career against the Baltimore Ravens on Christmas Day.

There’s no questioning that Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the world, but the best player does not always make First-Team All-Pro—Tom Brady famously only had three such selections. Purdy’s trajectory, supporting cast, and raw production make him an excellent pick to get his name on the list (and fight for the NFL MVP at +1600 odds).

Running Back: Derrick Henry, Baltimore Ravens

For the first time in his professional career as the full-time back, Henry is not going to be the obvious “must-stop” player. Teaming up with reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson will ensure that defenders can’t sell out to stop him and will thereby give him the most favorable defensive fronts he’s faced maybe since he was in middle school.

Henry is coming off of a “down year,” but that year still resulted in him tallying 1,167 rushing yards (second) and 12 touchdowns (tied-seventh). He also recorded his seventh of eight possible seasons in which he played either all or all-but-one of the available games.

Henry only made one First-Team All-Pro in 2020 but is a four-time Pro Bowler, two of those coming in the last two seasons. He may lose some carries to Jackson but also has a golden opportunity to lead the league in touchdowns for an offense that led the league in rushing yards in 2023.

Fullback: Kyle Juszczyk, San Francisco 49ers

The Juice is loose! Despite being an eight-time Pro-Bowler, the 33-year-old only just made his first First-Team All-Pro last season—however, that gives us reason to believe his contributions are finally being appreciated, and we believe he can perform at an elite level again in 2024.

The Niners are going to have one of the most prolific offenses in the league simply because of the talent they possess and coach Kyle Shanahan’s scheme. Juszczyk plays a starring role in that system and as a blocker, receiver, and even a runner when the time comes.

Very few offenses in the league regularly incorporate a fullback in their game plan, with Patrick Ricard of the Ravens being one of the only backs at “Juice’s” level of capability and usage.

Wide Receiver: Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals

Chase was kept out of the national headlines and considered to have had a bad year in 2023, yet he grabbed 100 receptions, 1,216 yards, and seven touchdowns. That was while playing with an injured Burrow, Jake Browning, and AJ McCarron as his quarterbacks.

Still only 24 years old, Chase went over 1,000 yards in all three of his professional seasons and is poised for potentially his best year ever following the loss of Tyler Boyd during the offseason. He made the Second-Team All-Pro as a rookie in 2021 and will be in the forefront of voters’ minds as many are waiting for his elite into true superstardom (+1000 in Offensive Player of the Year odds).

The bottom line is this: the receiver is a dependent position, and Chase has the benefit of playing with one of the undisputed three best quarterbacks in the NFL. He’s an elite talent with the production to match and should be hungry after his team underachieved a year ago.

Wide Receiver: Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins

There have only been three players age 30 or older that led the NFL in receiving yards—Jerry Rice in 1995, Jimmy Smith in 1999, and Marvin Harrison in 2002. Hill, who led the NFL in receiving yards (1,799) and touchdowns (13) in 2023, is trying to become the fourth now that he’s at the ripe age of 30.

Hill grabbed 119 receptions and eclipsed 1,700 yards in both seasons with the Dolphins. He also snatched 13 touchdowns, the second-most of his career, and is still capable of blowing a game open with what is clearly the fastest pair of legs in the entire sport.

Tua Tagovailoa will push the ball down the field, and Mike McDaniel will ensure Hill (+700 to win Offensive Player of the Year) will get the ball in different spots and ways. His production is simply off the charts, and father time hasn’t come close to sniffing him just yet.

Wide Receiver: Michael Pittman Jr., Indianapolis Colts

The most controversial inclusion in our list, Pittman is coming off a year in which he caught 109 passes for 1,152 yards and four touchdowns. 22-year-old quarterback Anthony Richardson only played parts of four games before he was ruled out for the year with a shoulder injury, but Pittman still managed career-highs in receptions and receiving yards.

With Richardson back under center, the Colts have the chance to field an impressive offense. Shane Steichen has proven himself to be an outstanding play-caller during his time with the Los Angeles Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, and last year, the Colts, and should have the offense humming. Opposing defenses also can’t send too many bodies at Pittman Jr. since they have to honor Jonathan Taylor in the backfield and other speedy wideouts.

Pittman Jr.’s potential First-Team campaign depends heavily on Richardson’s (+4000 MVP odds) development, but he showed enough in those four games for us to believe in him.

Tight End: Sam LaPorta, Detroit Lions

LaPorta did everything that was asked of him and more in his rookie campaign in the NFL last season, amassing 86 receptions, 889 yards, and 10 touchdowns. Those numbers ranked fourth, fifth, and first amongst all tight ends, which is quite a scary prospect for opposing defenses for the next decade.

LaPorta’s safe hands, big body, and ability to navigate the open field make him a perfect cog in the Lions’ offensive system. He’s an ever-present danger alongside the speedy Amon-Ra St. Brown and the powerful backfield of David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs and already has the full trust of QB Jared Goff.

LaPorta caught nine passes for 97 yards, the second-highest total in a game in his young career, in the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers. The takeaway from that is that he’s a huge part of Detroit’s offense, and he’s poised for a leap in 2024.

Left Tackle: Christian Darrisaw, Minnesota Vikings

Darrisaw is entering his fourth year in the league and has already carved out a role as one of the best at his position. He finished 2023 ranked ninth in overall rating and fifth in pass-blocking amongst all tackles, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Vikings have immense talent at skill positions with the likes of Justin Jefferson, Jordan Addison, T.J. Hockenson, and Aaron Jones, yet they lack guaranteed quarterback production. That’s why Darrisaw’s level of success protecting either Sam Darnold or rookie J.J. McCarthy could become a national storyline if the Vikings overachieve.

Trent Williams is regarded as the best left tackle in the league but is now 35 years old. Tyron Smith, another all-league player, is also 33, and Darrisaw is one of the elite members of the next generation.

Left Guard: Quenton Nelson, Indianapolis Colts

Nelson was a First-Team All-Pro player in each of the first three years of his career before he took a step back the next three. That’s not to say that he lost his dominance, however, as PFF graded him as the fourth-best pass-blocking guard in the league a year ago.

Nelson only ranked 17th overall amongst guards because of his struggles on the ground. However, the rotation of quarterbacks and needing to learn a new system under coach Steichen can both be blamed for some of his struggles in that department.

We mentioned earlier that we expect the Colts to have a powerful offense in 2024, a year after they ranked 11th with 23.3 points per game. Nelson is the best member of their offensive line and will be a driving force (literally) in their effort.

Center: Creed Humphrey, Kansas City Chiefs 

Humphrey is now the no-doubt best center in football following the retirement of future Hall of Famer and reigning First-Team All-Pro member Jason Kelce. Though he only finished third in PFF’s rankings amongst players who featured in at least 10 games, he made Second-Team All-Pro in 2022 and is a back-to-back Pro Bowler.

The 24-year-old is a mauler at the point of attack and has done a great job protecting Patrick Mahomes ever since he was selected in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The Chiefs also figure to have a more potent offense than they did last year following the additions of Marquise Brown and Xavier Worthy, which could shift the narrative back into Humphrey’s favor.

It’s usually not a bad idea to bet on members of the Chiefs offense to find success. There will be competition at the position from players such as Frank Ragnow of the Lions and Tyler Linderbaum of the Ravens, but we trust Humphrey to deliver.

Right Guard: Chris Lindstrom, Atlanta Falcons

Lindstrom made the Pro Bowl and Second-Team All-Pro for the second straight season last year as the Dallas Cowboys’ Zack Martin found his way onto his astonishing seventh First-Team All-Pro list. But while Martin had a nice year, the numbers suggest that he was not the best guard in the league. 

PFF graded Martin as just the 20th-best player in the league based on last year’s performances. The Buffalo Bills’ David Edwards took the top spot, while Lindstrom was second (and first amongst right guards). He did this with a balanced effort, ranking third in run-blocking and eighth in pass-blocking.

The Falcons spent a lot of money to acquire Kirk Cousins (+4000 MVP odds) and will drop him into an offense that is ready-made for success with the likes of Bijan Robinson (+3000 Offensive Player of the Year odds), Kyle Pitts, and Drake London. The Falcons have a reasonable chance to finish the year as a top-10 offense, and that would go a long way toward getting Lindstrom his first First-Team All-Pro nomination.

Right Tackle: Lane Johnson, Philadelphia Eagles

Johnson might be 34, but he made either the first or second-team All-Pro list each of the last three years. He’s also about to take on a new role as the out-and-out leader of the Eagles’ line following the retirement of his longtime teammate, Kelce.

Johnson ranked 13th amongst tackles but shot up to fifth amongst right tackles with at least 10 games played, per PFF. He’s great in both the passing and running game and has a chance to lead one of the best running units in the league thanks to Saquon Barkley’s arrival in the backfield.

The Eagles suffered a typical Super Bowl hangover last year and lost six of their final seven games. A resurgent year and great individual performances would almost assuredly be enough to get Johnson to the Pro Bowl, and if we’re correct, the First-Team All-Pro list.
