Mel Kiper Jr’s updated big board has three LSU players in the top 12

Mel Kiper Jr. has released his latest big board profiling who he believes are the top players in the 2024 NFL draft. On his new board, he has three LSU players among his top 12.

Jayden Daniels, Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas Jr. made the top 12 on Kiper’s new big board. Daniels comes in at No. 3. Nabers is No. 5, and Thomas is No. 12.

Daniels is coming off a Heisman-winning season for the Tigers, and, according to Kiper, he has jumped Drake Maye to become the second-best quarterback in the draft behind Caleb Williams.

Nabers is the third-highest wide receiver on the board. Kiper has him behind Marvin Harrison Jr. and Rome Odunze. I believe there should be a conversation on whether Nabers is better than both of them.

Thomas is the fourth-highest wide receiver on the board. He had a great year with LSU last season and his combine numbers were insane. Those numbers shot him up the board for a number of teams.
