2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Christian Mahogany (OG – Boston College)

2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Christian Mahogany (OG – Boston College)

With being more than halfway through the College Football season, FantasyPros will be taking a look at early NFL Draft scouting reports before the Combine in March. Here’s a look at Christian Mahogany.

2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Christian Mahogany

Christian Mahogany (OG – Boston College)

6’3″ – 322 lbs.

Background:

Redshirted, then started 11 games in each of the following two seasons, first at left guard in 2020 (three sacks allowed), then at right guard in 2021 (one sack allowed). Missed the 2022 season after tearing his ACL during the offseason, but has returned this year to reprise his role at right guard.

Positives:

Very thickly-built offensive lineman with three years of productive starting experience. The definition of a gap scheme phone-booth mauler. Physical player with a tough and nasty temperament; can really hear the pads clicking. Has a lot of explosive power in his hands to overwhelm defenders on contact. Takes advantage of chances to finish opponents off when he gets a chance. Able to pull to the left or ride the side and blow up opponents. He presents as a big obstacle to work around in pass protection. Actively fires out his punch and generally gets good extension. Easily anchors against power in the passing game; an “immovable object” approach to protecting the quarterback. The team asked him to get out in space in the screen game and has adequate range and solid effort for a player of his size. Came back this season and performed well after ACL surgery.

Negatives:

A bit top-heavy. Range/length may be relatively limited and can look a bit lumbering and uncoordinated when operating in space. Gives effort, but stamina constrains his range. Some tendency to lower his head into contact, leading to balance issues. More of a repeated shover than someone who gets his hands locked on inside and sustains through the whistle. Lower-body flexibility appears average at best. Doesn’t have a lot of lateral quickness and can struggle to recover against quicker opponents on passing downs when his initial punch is unsuccessful. His knee will require further medical investigation during the pre-draft process.

Summary:

A huge three-year starter who’s certainly one of the nastiest and most physically overwhelming interior linemen in this year’s draft class. Would fit best in a gap scheme that allows him to do most of his work in a phone booth without requiring him to cover too much ground, or at least without requiring him to regularly get out in space. Seemed to look a bit more fluid and coordinated in 2021 before tearing his ACL, but has shown that he’s still capable of overpowering and bullying opponents this season. Would be a good fit for a team trying to establish a physical culture in the offensive line room.

Projection: Round 4
