Now that the college football and NFL seasons are officially in the rearview mirror, ESPN Football analyst Mel Kiper Jr. updated his Top-25 prospects overall for the Class of 2024.

In his list, Kiper included LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels and wide receiver Malik Nabers in his Top-10. Per On3:

3. Jayden Daniels, QB – LSU
Daniels might have the argument to pass Drake Maye in this year’s draft after his Heisman campaign. The LSU quarterback always had dual threat abilities, but they were on a different level this past season. Kiper now has him in the driver’s seat as QB2.

Since the trend of a lot of these rookie quarterbacks to start right away, that might be the case for Daniels as well. It’ll remain to be seen how high he goes in the first round, but he might not last long.

6. Malik Nabers, WR – LSU
Don’t forget about Nabers, who had just as good, if not a better season catching passes. He was the main target for Daniels all year long, helping his quarterback win the Heisman.

Like Odunze, he can run the entire route tree and can really stretch the field. Depending upon your evaluation, it might be a toss up between Nabers and the others.
Daniels was the 2nd-highest-ranked quarterback on the list, and Nabers was the 3rd-highest-ranked receiver.

LSU wide receiver Brian Thomas Jr. landed just outside the Top 10 at No. 11 and was the 4th highest-ranked wideout in the Top 25.

He is not evaluating Daniel's. He said live on ESPN recently that as he talks to GMs Daniel's is the name he is hearing a lot about.

Keep him out of the NFC South unless it is with the Saints of course.

I wish Daniels all the success in the world, which is why I hope he goes as late as possible. The later he goes the better the team will be.

Still unbelievable that Caleb Williams is ahead of JD.
