Notre Dame OT Joe Alt a Consensus Top 10 Draft Pick Among NFL Executives

After the 2024 NFL Combine, six NFL executives were asked for their top-10 prospects in the draft. Notre Dame offensive tackle Joe Alt was one of only four players to be included on all six lists, along with Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, and Drake Maye.

If the Tennessee Titans are looking to get a sure-fire prospect with the No. 7 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, Notre Dame offensive tackle Joe Alt would be the guy. A group of six random NFL executives all believe the All-American lineman is a top-10 talent.

Mike Sando of The Athletic polled six NFL executives about top-10 draft picks in this year's draft class. Alt was one of just four players that were included on each of the six ballots.

The other three were quarterback Caleb Williams (USC), quarterback Jayden Daniels (LSU), and quarterback Drake Maye (North Carolina). That's not bad company.

Because of the Titans' needs at left tackle, Alt has been a popular pick in mock drafts at the No. 7 spot. He's a player who can immediately fit in with Tennessee and be a Day 1 starter in Nashville.

Alt was considered the top offensive tackle prospect in this year's draft class by many outlets. He solidified that status at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last week.

Alt measured at 6-feet-9 and 321 pounds. He clocked a 5.05-second time in the 40-yard dash, recorded a broad jump of 9 feet, 4 inches, and finished with 27 reps on the bench press (225 pounds).

Per, Alt graded out with the second-best production score among offensive tackles and the fourth-highest athleticism score at the position. His total score was listed at 85 — the best of any prospect at the offensive tackle position.

Coming into the combine, Penn State's Olu Fashanu was in the conversation as the top offensive tackle prospect in the draft class. After Alt's showing in Indianapolis, he seems to be the consensus No. 1 player at the position this year.
