Consensus 2024 NFL Free Agency Rankings

We are a few weeks away from the start of NFL free agency. Teams can officially sign free agents starting on Wednesday, March 13th at 4 PM ET, when the next league year begins, but they can begin negotiating with agents during the legal tampering window that begins on Monday, March 11th.

Using free-agent rankings from a variety of sources, we have ranked the available free-agent pool using their consensus ranking score.

Here are some notes on how to interpret the table below:

  • Five sources were used and the "total" column is the sum of those rankings.
  • The lower the score, the better. For example, Chris Jones was the consensus top-ranked free agent and his score was 5 (five rankings of 1).
  • Free agents unranked by an individual source get their next ("+1") ranking.
    • Example: CBS Sports ranked 50 free agents and every free agent not included in their rankings (e.g., Jadeveon Clowney) received a score of 51.

Players that get designated with the franchise tag (deadline: March 5th) will be excluded. Only unrestricted free agents are included; restricted free agents are excluded.
