Christian Mahogany Will Soon Add To Boston College’s NFL Pipeline

The Boston College pipeline—folks, it’s a thing. 

While years ago saw the likes of Matt Ryan, Luke Kuechly, Anthony Castonzo, and B.J. Raji serve as the Eagles’ NFL headliners; there’s a newer crop of talent in the form of Justin Simmons, Matt Milano, Harold Landry, Chris Lindstrom, AJ Dillon, Zion Johnson, and, most recently, first-rounder Zay Flowers. The 2024 NFL Draft has another athlete to become familiar with in guard Christian Mahogany.

Seemingly every year we find ourselves boasting over a man-mover that calls Chestnut Hill home and Mahogany is a bully along the front five. While his success remains distant in memories as he missed the entirety of the 2022 campaign, as you flip on the tape of 2021, a full picture begins to paint itself toward the potentially dominant interior force he could be at the game’s highest level.

An outstanding blend of size, power, and technique, Mahogany can overwhelm interior defenders with his hands and power to drive players away from the line of scrimmage. In the run, he explodes off the line of scrimmage, immediately establishing his hands to win the leverage battle. 

Powerful and athletic enough to relocate 3-techs, disengage, and work up to linebackers, Mahogany also has a nastiness to his game in space and can move a pile on short down and distances. In pass pro, he’s as smooth as any interior stalwart in the country, showcasing a quick kick-step and a sturdy anchor against all types of skill sets. He’s also versatile for any scheme, so whether you’re a team that wants to pound it up the gut for 60 minutes or ask your guards to pull in space, Mahogany can mold his game to any assignment he’s tasked with. 

It was just last June when Mahogany was looked upon as a highly touted name for the 2023 class. A torn ACL put a halt in his immediate path to the NFL, but working back up to where he was in the minds of league-wide evaluators just a year ago at this point remains priority No. 1. Without any hiccups, setbacks, or a grace period to adjust from being away from the game for a year, with the knee back to 100% and all eyes centered on his immediate response post-surgery, expect him to—once again—become the premier guard among all draft-eligible linemen come next April.
