Written by: Joseph Yun


The offensive line gets their star turn this week as we progress through the offseason of turbulence and topsy-turvy ongoings. Who are the best of the best at each of the three positions in the trenches? Where could they land as the men who lead the way? How many first-round tackles go there?


If you missed any of the previous big board articles, they can be found below:

OT


1. Evan Neal 6’7 334 Junior Alabama


- Neal is the top-ranked tackle on the board but it’s a tight contest that will go down to the wire in a white knuckle finish. The versatility that he showed in moving to left tackle from the right side will only aid him. His size belies a man of above-average athleticism, both laterally and going forward. Powerful punch allows him to hold off the strongest rushers at bay. A mountain of a man with an equally wide wingspan. The former Tide junior has only one year of being a left tackle so teams might not be particularly apt to put him there immediately. He might be used as a right tackle first before making the switch to left tackle eventually. A likely top ten selection and the top 15 is his floor. His profile compares to former Georgia tackle George Foster.


Round Grade: Top 15


RAS: N/A


Player Comp: George Foster


2. Ikem Ekonwu 6’4 310 Junior North Carolina State


- Ickey was a solid starter for the Wolfpack prior to the 2021 season when he came on like gangbusters and cemented himself as a top-three tackle prospect. Power is the name of his game. Brute force that uses an Ivan Drago-level punch to make opponents wary. To put it in hockey terms, he’s the enforcer. Length and wingspan are also assets of his. Hands are a major plus. Technical ability and IQ may be the best in class for his position. Just a notch below the elite-level athletes, he showed out at the Combine in everything he did. The RAS matches up with the film. He’s a lock for the top ten, a stone’s throw away from being locked into the top five like Fort Knox. Profiles athletically like new Saint via Chargers Forrest Lamp. Playstyle is that of fellow top ten selection, Lions right tackle Penei Sewell.


Round Grade: Top 10


RAS: 8.31


Player Comp: Forrest Lamp / Penei Sewell


3. Trevor Penning 6’7 325 Redshirt Senior Northern Iowa


- Another big dude from Northern Iowa looking to make an impact in the pros, you ask? Penning is that dude and then some. He’s been flying up the boards and locks himself in as a top-three tackle, top five at worst. Bully-ball mentality with starting experience in both tackle spots so he’s not limited to just one. Athleticism isn’t as highly praised by RAS but he is indeed athletic laterally so he’s not walking with cement shoes. Straight-line athleticism is way above average as the testing numbers indicate. He has shown that he can play both tackle spots with very little dropoff from moving back and forth. I think he settles in as a high-level right tackle but can be successful at left given the development time. He’s a surefire first-round selection at this point. Profile comparison is Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan both athletically and stylistically.


Round Grade: First Round


RAS: 9.96


Player Comp: Taylor Lewan


4. Charles Cross 6’4 306 Redshirt Sophomore Mississippi State


- Cross was a two-year starter for the Bulldogs at left tackle so versatility is limited and a projection. He's coming into the league with experience in the Air Raid offense so there could be some transition questions. Athletic body profile and he plays like it as well. A terrific athlete that the RAS definitely matches with. There's some power and meanness in his game if encouraged. Moves well laterally and in pull situations. Like his erstwhile counterpart in Raleigh, Cross is somewhat undersized and could project as a guard later down the road. His hype was well warranted for the past year or so. A definite top 20 selection with a puncher's chance of going in the top ten. Stylistic and athletic profile leans towards Kyle Long.


Round Grade: Top 15


RAS: 7.58


Player Comp: Kyle Long


5. Abraham Lucas 6’6 315 Redshirt Senior Washington State


- Lucas was the primary starter at right tackle for the Cougs much like Tristan Wirfs was for Iowa before moving to left tackle. He’s a big dude with some limited athleticism going forward and pulling. Lateral agility is solid given his size. Length isn’t an issue for him nor are his hands as they are ideally sized and powerful. The RAS did show more about his athleticism than the film did in this situation. While not the most impactful road grading lineman out there, he does show elements of a nasty workmanlike attitude in flashes. Technically proficient as well. He’ll likely be placed at right tackle in the pros since that’s where the vast amount of his reps were at. The profile indicates that he’s similar to another Pac-12 tackle standout Jake Fisher but stylistically, he reminds me of Jack Conklin. Could project to go higher than most anticipate on Day 2.


Round Grade: Second


RAS: 9.72


Player Comp: Jake Fisher / Jack Conklin


6. Nicholas Petit-Frère 6’5 316 Redshirt Junior Ohio State


- Nicholas the younger brother finally got his shot at the left tackle gig for the vaunted Buckeyes offensive line in 2021 and ran with it. He initially started off as a right tackle in the shortened 2020 campaign. All that to say, it's a good bet that he’ll start off as a left tackle with the option to move to right tackle if the blindside doesn’t work out. He’s an underrated athlete with prototypical tackle size. Fundamentally a bit less than ideal but it can be coached. Lateral mobility is above average. Ultimately, he probably needs to settle on a spot and master it at the big league level. There’s enough athletic potential for a team to take a chance on him on Day 2 at the latest given the program’s pedigree. Athletic and stylistic profile is similar to that of current Saints right tackle Ryan Ramcyzk.


Round Grade: Second


RAS: 6.28


Player Comp: Ryan Ramcyzk


7. Rasheed Walker 6’5 313 Redshirt Junior Penn State


- Walker was a three-year starter at left tackle who faced the best of the best in terms of EDGE rushers and handled them all. He’s a big-framed dude with mean intentions any time Penn State ran a play in his general direction. A wide base like an old-school Charles Barkley lining up for a rebound. Above-average athleticism to get to the second level and when he does, watch out for the freight train wearing 53. Lateral quickness isn’t that much of an issue either. Teams will love his on-field demeanor and vast quantities of experience against highly talented pass rushers. Arm length could be an issue at just over 33.5” however if he sticks at tackle. The size and play style could be better suited for a transition to the right side or even a kick inside to guard. He has enough of a resume to merit consideration in the third round. The former Penn State product is almost an exact match to Cardinals right tackle D.J. Humphries.


Round Grade: Third


RAS: N/A


Player Comp: D.J. Humphries


8. Bernhard Raimann 6’6 303 Senior Central Michigan


- Nine years after a highly touted tackle from Central Michigan graced the pro stage as a former number one overall selection comes yet another. While Raimann certainly won’t see his name called up to those lofty standards, he could see himself on Day 2. He took a route familiar to many CMU fans, the very same path Eric Fisher took. He converted from tight end, essentially splitting his career into two positions. The RAS indicates that he retained some of the tight-end athleticism in the move to tackle. In fact, he is an almost exact physical match to his much-ballyhooed predecessor. Another close athletic and physical match is that of former Indiana tackle Jason Spriggs.


Round Grade: Third


RAS: 9.87


Player Comp: Eric Fisher / Jason Spriggs


9. Kellen Diesch 6’7 301 Redshirt Senior Arizona State


- Diesch has rather limited starting experience for the Sun Devils, getting only 16 over a two-year span. He's all about projection at this stage in his career. Athletic as heck as indicative of the RAS. The ASU tackle blew the testing out of the water, running a 4.89 40 and testing well in the other counting drills. He's a slim 301 so the frame needs to add a few more pounds. All about finesse at this point with a rather limited skill base. An impressive offseason has catapulted him into the early Day 3 range. He compares athletically to former Washington Husky and current Atlanta Falcons tackle Kaleb McGary.


Round Grade: Fourth to Fifth


RAS: 9.74


Player Comp: Kaleb McGary


10. Max Mitchell 6’6 307 Senior Louisiana-Lafayette


- The former Ragin Cajun was a well-deserved Senior Bowl invitee where he performed admirably. He’s a better athlete than the RAS gives him credit for. He could stand to add a few more pounds to his 6’6 frame as 307 is a bit light. Position versatile as he played both tackle spots with aplomb. Left tackle is probably his future home for now where his athleticism can be better utilized. Strength is underrated but still needs work given his weight. Projects as an early Day 3 selection but could slip a bit further due to the depth of the class. Physical profile resembles that of former West Virginia lineman Colton McKivitz.


Round Grade: Fourth


RAS: 5.87


Player Comp: Colton McKivitz


11. Matt Waletzko 6’7 312 Senior North Dakota


- No, not that school in North Dakota. The actual state university that’s much less heralded than its Bison colleagues. Waletzko was a Senior Bowl invitee where he stood out as a small school prospect. The RAS is oh so real. Dude is an ATHLETE with long arms. He’s built like a small-ball stretch four in NBA parlance. Every bit of 6’7 and the frame could add at least ten pounds or so to compete with the bigger edge rushers that we see in the league. Obviously, the competition level wasn’t the greatest so teams will have to project forward a bit. Left tackle by trade and will likely start there to begin his pro career. He has a chance to go early on Day 3. Physical profile matches up to former UNI big man Spencer Brown who went right about that range the last cycle.


Round Grade: Fourth to Fifth


RAS: 9.92


Player Comp: Spencer Brown


12. Dare Rosenthal 6’6 290 Redshirt Junior Kentucky


- Rosenthal transferred in from LSU where he had some issues. He's only been a starter at tackle for one year so this ranking is about potential. Athletic for days and has great H/W/L. Yeah, he's a bit fundamentally raw after converting from the defensive side just three years ago. Still, there are enough good traits to get him drafted on Day 3 pretty early. Some team will have to be patient in his development process but could be worth his weight in gold. He profiles close to former USC tackle and league veteran Matt Kalil.


Round Grade: Fourth to Fifth


RAS: N/A


Player Comp: Matt Kalil


13. Zach Tom 6’4 304 Redshirt Senior Wake Forest


- Tom is the second-best tackle prospect in the ACC. He's an exceptionally quick athlete with excellent lateral agility. The RAS definitely matches the film. Not the most powerful nor lengthy but is great technically with his hands. Footwork is quick and smooth like a cat. Yeah, the size is less than what you want in a tackle but he's so quick and technically proficient that it hardly matters. The former Demon Deacon also has experience at center so the versatility bodes well for his future. He could definitely go higher than his current fourth-round projection. The physical traits are similar to that of Joel Bitonio, who has had a serviceable career to date.


Round Grade: Fourth


RAS: 9.72


Player Comp: Joel Bitonio


14. Myron Cunningham 6’5 320 Redshirt Senior Arkansas


- A better athlete than his RAS gives him credit for. He’s very refined laterally given his size. Cunningham has powerful hands that end defenders’ careers once they lock on. A power-packed run blocker who gets to the second level quickly and searches for targets. While he isn’t exactly slow on foot, speed rushers give him something to think about. Arm length is above average. He started at left tackle for three years in Fayetteville, facing down some of the nation’s best EDGE players so the experience will help him transition to the league. H/W/L is on the good side. Really blossomed under the tutelage of offensive line savant head coach Sam Pittman the last two seasons. Right now, he grades out as a middle Day 3 prospect. Compares physically to former Florida State tackle Menelik Watson.


Round Grade: Fifth to Sixth


RAS: 2.12


Player Comp: Menelik Watson


15. Daniel Faalele 6’8 384 Senior Minnesota


- Faalele is on the short list of guys you want zero part of trying to tackle in the red zone, that’s for sure. He’s not just a curiosity, either but a legitimately draftable long-term project. Underrated athlete given his size but the RAS is quite indicative of his ability as of right now. He’s relatively new to the game with just six seasons of experience. Due to his height, he can be easily out-leveraged if a rusher gets into him quick enough. A massive mountain of a man. Once he gets his hands on a defender, it’s overdue to his power and frame. Tackles of his size are rare so thus the comparisons are as such. He compares physically to another former rugby player and newly enriched Eagles tackle Jordan Mailata. Play style reminds me of another giant, former Miami Hurricanes legend and long-time pro Bryant McKinnie. He’s a long-term development idea for sure. Likely a Day 3 selection with Day 2 upside.


Round Grade: Sixth


RAS: 2.41


Player Comp: Jordan Mailata / Bryant McKinnie


16. Tyler Vrabel 6’5 316 Redshirt Junior Boston College


- He’s the son of Patriots legend and current Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel. The son, unlike the father, is an offensive line prospect. Vrabel is quite limited in terms of power and reach. He has sufficient athleticism to get by at tackle but could be ideally suited for guard where arm length disadvantages are negated. An aggressive and physical mentality is pervasive in his game, much to his father’s credit. Versatility is a plus as he has starting experience at both tackle spots. He has the pedigree and athleticism to get by in order to likely get drafted in the middle to late portions of Day 3. The former Boston College product’s profile is similar to Houston Cougars tackle Josh Jones.


Round Grade: Fifth to Sixth


RAS: 7.61


Player Comp: Josh Jones

OG


1. Zion Johnson 6’2 314 Redshirt Senior Boston College


- Johnson has been a rising star through the process after a great career for BC’s talent-laden line. The versatile athlete played both left guard and tackle in college but his real pro position could be center a la Rodney Hudson. He took some center reps at the Senior Bowl and was successful at it given that it was his first time ever. Guard seems like his most preternatural position as he was a starter for two seasons there. Athletic testing was off the charts good across the board for all three line positions with a RAS no lower than 9.48 on the scale. He’s athletic enough to play tackle if necessary but could be a star at guard. Football IQ is great as well. The former BC product doesn’t have the ideal measurements for tackle but the footwork is a huge plus. He’s very composed in almost every situation, rarely beaten nor panicking. A smooth athlete in every facet of the game. Physical and stylistic profile is remarkably similar to that of star left guard Rodger Saffold, who recently signed with Buffalo after a successful stint in Nashville. Johnson should be a first-round selection due to his versatility and he is iOL1 on my board.


Round Grade: First


RAS: 9.74


Player Comp: Rodger Saffold


2. Cole Strange 6’4 307 Redshirt Senior UT-Chattanooga


- Arguably the hottest stock in the lineman class belongs to Strange. He has played the majority of his career as a left guard but has started a few games at tackle and center. A run blocking expert with athleticism for days as the RAS indicates. With the pads on, he’s an above-average athlete for a guard. Moves well laterally and the footwork isn’t clunky. Smooth operator with his hands in both the run and pass game. A tough hombre against anyone and everyone even if he’s a paper physical mismatch. The former UTC star had an outstanding Senior Bowl and Combine performance to launch himself into the Day 2 conversation. He compares both physically and stylistically to recently retired Super Bowl champion guard Ali Marpet, who himself was a second-round selection.


Round Grade: Second to Third


RAS: 9.95


Player Comp: Ali Marpet


3. Kenyon Green 6’3 323 Junior Texas A&M


- Speaking of versatile athletes, Green was that and then some. He played every position but center throughout his time in College Station. There are some who have him as the top overall iOL in the class and it is well justified. He’s the top prospect at guard in terms of overall package. The size, athleticism, and versatility is too much to ignore at this point. He can get to the second level and move laterally well for a guy his size despite the slightly above average RAS score. IQ is very good and it had to be in order to play in Jimbo Fisher’s methodical offense. Teams will love his versatility as it saves a roster spot or two when it comes to cutdown day. Well schooled in fundamentals. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he went on Day 1 but is for sure a lock for Day 2. Green is better than former teammate Dan Moore, Jr and could be argued as the best A&M lineman since Jake Matthews. He has a physical profile that resembles former Oklahoma G/T Cody Ford and the play style of veteran Connor McGovern.


Round Grade: First to Second


RAS: 5.88


Player Comp: Cody Ford / Connor McGovern


4. Dylan Parham 6’2 311 Redshirt Senior Memphis


- Look up the word versatile in the dictionary and Parham’s picture is likely next to it. He has started at both guard spots and at right tackle for the Tigers. Undersized even by guard standards, so a possible move to the center spot where the size might fit better. Athleticism is effortlessly smooth at all levels so teams that run RPO-heavy stuff might best suit him. Technical aspects like hands need few adjustments. Like many of his athletic brethren, he was a multisport athlete in high school and was a tight end before transitioning to the line. The RAS and film match up. He’ll likely slip into Day 3 but some team will get a steal that late. Athletic profile leans towards veteran Trai Turner.


Round Grade: Third to Fourth


RAS: 8.72


Player Comp: Trai Turner


5. Darian Kinnard 6’5 322 Senior Kentucky


- Kinnard is a monster blocker in the run game. He fits the definition of a road grading mauler at right tackle. The former Wildcat had vast amounts of reps against some of the best edge players the SEC has to offer and won a majority of them. Athlete who can move at an above-average clip laterally and forwards when the opportunity presents itself. He really blossomed under the tutelage of OC Liam Coen who has moved onto the NFL with the Rams. Although DK was a tackle at the college level, his size, length, and athleticism would fit better as a guard. He had a good Senior Bowl and better Combine performance. It wouldn’t be too far out of bounds to say that he would be a top ten guard in about three seasons. A rock-solid bet to go in the third round due to his attitude, experience, and depth of the line class. Physical profile resembles that of former Florida State tackle Zebrie Sanders.


Round Grade: Third


RAS: 5.80


Player Comp: Zebrie Sanders


6. Tyler Smith 6’4 325 Redshirt Junior Tulsa


- Smith is an athlete who moves very well laterally and has slotted in as the left tackle for Tulsa since his freshman campaign. The arms are a bit on the shorter side than what you would normally ask for and are evident on tape. He has some issues with connecting his hands to his arms against the speed rushers. A kick inside to guard may be in his future. He’s serviceable as an athlete to survive at tackle but can thrive inside. Definitely has the aggression for the move. Runs like a chicken with its head cut off i.e. not in full coordination. Possesses enough balance and recovery to avoid getting bullied onto the ground oftentimes. Size and athletics-wise, he has a profile similar to veteran tackle Duane Brown and his play style is reminiscent of Carolina’s highly paid lineman, Taylor Moton.


Round Grade: Fourth


RAS: 8.76


Player Comp: Duane Brown / Taylor Moton


7. Jamaree Salyer 6’3 321 Senior Georgia


- Salyer was the franchise left tackle for the reigning national champion Bulldogs but is best suited inside due to a lack of distinct athleticism and frame. He’s not overly quick but when he gets his hands on you, it's game, set, match most times. The RAS fleshes out the tape by stating that he scores better as a guard than tackle. Below average on the perimeter, slightly above it kicking inside. He’ll likely land in the early stages of Day 3 but has a chance to go in the latter portion of Day 2 due to versatility and pedigree. Physical comparison turns out to be a top-notch veteran of New Orleans and Auburn repute, Ben Grubbs. I’d venture to say that he wouldn’t be a top ten tackle but has the potential to be a top-five guard in the class.


Round Grade: Third to Fourth


RAS: 4.15


Player Comp: Ben Grubbs


8. Ed Ingram 6’3 307 Redshirt Senior Louisiana State


- Ingram was a brick wall for the Tigers throughout his career in Baton Rouge. He’s a fluid athlete with very little wasted motion. A bull in a china shop that just wrecks stuff. Great athlete who searches for targets at the second level and excellent puller when asked. The former Tiger was versatile enough to play both guard spots at the collegiate level. However, teams will ask questions as to why he had to sit out a year due to misconduct. Athletic enough to play tackle in a pinch for a game or three. He’s had an outstanding offseason process as well. Ingram profiles similarly to former Arkansas lineman Alvin Bailey. He has a chance to sneak into Day 2 but will more than likely to go early on Day 3.


Round Grade: Fourth


RAS: 7.32


Player Comp: Alvin Bailey


9. Spencer Burford 6’4 304 Senior UT-San Antonio


- Burford has been a fast riser up the boards this offseason with a solid Senior Bowl and Combine performance. Versatile athlete who can play both guard and tackle as he started at guard before transitioning to tackle to finish. He has above-average arm length and should stick at tackle with the athleticism he has. While the height and weight aren’t as ideal outside, it’s perfect on the interior. Some team will take a chance on his versatility as a swing type and develop him as such. He seems like a fit in the fifth round due to the depth of this guard class. Physical and stylistic profile matches former USC and current Jets lineman Chuma Edoga.


Round Grade: Fifth


RAS: 6.71


Player Comp: Chuma Edoga


10. Lecitus Smith 6’3 314 Redshirt Senior Virginia Tech


- Smith played guard exclusively for the Hokies after converting from tight end to start his college career. He doesn’t have the positional versatility as a result but he’s a dang good guard. Much better athlete than he’s given credit for. RAS reflects that. Finesse technician. Due to his lack of versatility and good athleticism, he’ll likely settle into the middle of Day 3. The former Hokie compares physically to standout Titans guard Nate Davis.


Round Grade: Fifth to Sixth


RAS: 6.41


Player Comp: Nate Davis


11. Sean Rhyan 6’4 321 Junior UCLA


- Rhyan is a tackle by trade but his athleticism is above average at the position and remarkably impressive at guard. He can play tackle in a pinch but kicking inside is better suited for his pro prospects. The biggest question is his length on the perimeter but it isn't as big a question inside. In fact, the RAS as a guard jumps up to a 9.3 flat over the 8.15 as a tackle. Lateral agility is a big plus plus. Football IQ is great as well. He can quickly diagnose the rusher’s moves and counter immediately. He should be drafted a lot higher than this ranking and probably gets in on Day 2 but will likely settle early on Day 3. Physically and stylistically, profiles trend toward longtime Washington turned Jaguar stud, Brandon Scherff.


Round Grade: Fourth


RAS: 8.15


Player Comp: Brandon Scherff

C


1. Tyler Linderbaum 6’2 296 Redshirt Junior Iowa


- Linderbaum is the clear-cut best center and it isn’t particularly close. He’s in the running for the overall iOL1 as well. Yeah, he’s a touch undersized but he plays with a fantastic road grading mean streak against equal to superior opponents. IHOP should give him a sponsorship deal once he hits the NFL because he loves pancakes. An equally adept run and pass blocker. He didn’t test at the Combine so there's a lack of RAS but did partake in the other drills. What’s remarkable is that center wasn’t even his first position in college! He converted from defensive tackle just two years ago. The physical traits aren’t exactly ideal in terms of wingspan but he’s that dominant to overlook those things. NFL teams should be wise to stick him at center and forget about the position for the next half-decade-plus. Physically, he profiles in a similar vein to former all-world Jets center Nick Mangold. Playstyle is similar to Ben Jones, who has been an underrated stalwart for both the Texans and Titans for a number of years. He should be a first-round selection.


Round Grade: First


RAS: N/A


Player Comp: Nick Mangold / Ben Jones


2. Alec Lindstrom 6’3 296 Redshirt Senior Boston College


- The former Boston College product has impressive bloodlines as older brother Chris is currently starting for the Falcons as a former first-round selection. Lindstrom was a three-year starter at center so his versatility is limited in scope. As the RAS indicates, he’s an above-average athlete with great lateral agility. Explosion scores are great for the position as well. Undersized and could stand to add about five to ten pounds to his frame to better hold up in the league. While it’s certainly possible that he matches his brother as a first-round choice, it’s more likely that he goes on Day 2 earlier than expected due to his athleticism and much appreciated technical abilities. Possibly the most technically efficient with hands in the lineman class. Physically and stylistically, he compares to former Chargers standout center Nick Hardwick.


Round Grade: Second


RAS: 8.40


Player Comp: Nick Hardwick


3. Luke Wattenberg 6’4 299 Redshirt Senior Washington


- If you’re sensing a theme here, it's undersized athleticism. Wattenberg is a solid level athlete with the pads on but he blew the testing out of the water with an absurd 9.57 RAS, which places him in Ryan Kelly and Connor McGovern territory. Versatility is the name of his game as he has transitioned to center from guard after the departure of Nick Harris. With a few more pounds, he can be a swing interior lineman for a team looking for depth along the line. Long term, he can be a starter at center if he's developed right but won’t be that guy on Day 1. The former Washington product reminds me of another Pac-12 prospect long ago in former USC lineman Ryan Kalil in terms of physicality and playability. Wattenberg should be in the fourth to the fifth-round range.


Round Grade: Fourth to Fifth


RAS: 9.57


Player Comp: Ryan Kalil


4. Dohnovan West 6’3 296 Junior Arizona State


- The Sun Devil is versatility personified as he has played all interior positions throughout his college career. He was the starting center in 2021 so is labeled as such for this exercise. The RAS matches the film as he graded out to be an above-average athlete but not overtly so. Hand usage was good for either guard or center so that’s a plus. Undersized for guard but ideal for center. Good athlete who can get to the second level in a hurry. Strength is above average when size is factored in. Physically, he matches up with Oregon’s Hroniss Grasu aka Marcus Mariota’s center, while his playstyle + versatility is that of veteran Cam Erving of Florida State fame. West is trending upwards but will likely settle in the middle of Day 3 as an ultra-versatile developmental swing type who can steal a spot.


Round Grade: Fifth to Sixth


RAS: 6.92


Player Comp: Hroniss Grasu / Cam Erving


5. Cameron Jurgens 6’2 303 Junior Nebraska


- This dude is an ATHLETE and author of the most preeminent frog jumps by offensive lineman ever seen to date. Rumor has it that noted frog stanced (in college) Titans lineman Nate Davis was green with envy upon receiving word of this. He accelerates to the second level like a running back it seems. Excellent puller and has enough quickness to flank defenders on the perimeter routinely. The RAS definitely matches the film. He ran an absolutely flying 4.91 40 at the Combine. He has functional strength and is a typical Big Ten lineman with a sheer will to dominate his opponent. Plus plus run blocker and above average pass blocker. Undersized as usual for the position but is very experienced, notching 31 starts at center. He converted from tight end three years ago so that’s where the athleticism emanates. This Huskers lineman should go a little higher and could possibly sneak into the latter stages of Day 2. Early Day 3 is right in his wheelhouse more than likely. Physically, he similarly profiles to former NC State lineman Garrett Bradbury who was a first-round selection of the Vikings.


Round Grade: Fourth to Fifth


RAS: 9.92


Player Comp: Garrett Bradbury
