Missouri football has been up and down for years, many seasons Tiger fans are let down in hopes of becoming the great program they once were. In 2023, Tiger fans had something to celebrate. Mizzou went 11-2 and capped off the season with a Cotton Bowl win over Ohio State.
Eliah Drinkwitz is creating a good culture and program in Columbia, MO, and this is just the start. Eleven players declared for the draft after the 2023 season most notably cornerbacks Ennis Rakestraw Jr. and Kris Abrams-Draine. Running back Cody Schrader and Darius Robinson helped their draft stock after their Reese's Senior Bowl performances.
Mock drafts are everywhere right now with everyone guessing where certain players will be going in the NFL.
Here is when and where I believe these eleven players will be taken in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Darius Robinson did everything he needed to do in the Reese's Senior Bowl to help raise his draft stock. Robinson was a borderline first-round pick before he started practices in Mobile, Alabama. On day two of practice, Robinson was unblockable in numerous drills. He dominated both inside and outside on the defensive line.
The Dolphins could use good young players on the defensive line. In the playoffs, their defensive line was decimated by injuries, and now in the offseason, they have Christian Wilkins and Deshon Elliott becoming free agents.
Robinson could be the perfect young talent to jump-start the defensive line under new defensive coordinator Joe Barry. His strength and speed off the line will help bring firepower to a Dolphins defense that looks like it will need it going forward.
