Pos.RankPlayerSchoolHt.Wt.40
OT1Eugene MonroeVirginia6-53095.2
Notes:[Andy Hart] Decent lateral movment. Good punch. Passes off games well. Good feet and base.[Erik Scalavino]Great balance allows him not to be overpowered. Proven versatility while at Virginia makes him the most attractive O-line prospect of this draft class.[Paul Perillo] A notch above the rest; Great feet/extension; Shows great strength.
OT2Andre SmithAlabama6-43325.28
Notes:[Andy Hart] Major maturity issues cloud impressive physical talent. Great size and power.[Erik Scalavino] Has all the physical tools. It's the mental ones that allowed his draft stock to slip, but, of late, he appears to have allayed those concerns somewhat and is rising once again.[Paul Perillo] Good mobility/extension; Uses arms well; Good pop in pass protection.
OT3Jason SmithBaylor6-53095.2
Notes:[Andy Hart] Better run blocker than pass pro. Overrated. May end up a right tackle. Big drop from Monroe.[Erik Scalavino]Powerful blocker with great footwork. Very athletic for his size, too. Very little difference between him and Monroe.[Paul Perillo] Good feet; Doesn't get beat wide; Seals edge; Solid prospect but I liked the first two more.
OT4Michael OherMississippi6-53095.3
Notes:[Andy Hart] Good feet and quickness. Issues with speed rushers at times. Decent power.[Erik Scalavino]Plays with aggression and a bit of a mean streak, belying his soft-spoken off-the-field demeanor.[Paul Perillo] Good feet/mobility; Very athletic; Locks on well; Can block in space; Intriguing skills.
OT5Eben BrittonArizona6-63095.15
Notes: [Andy Hart] Fluid in pass pro but needs to get stronger. Catches rushers at times. OK hands. Versatile.[Erik Scalavino]Moves a bit slower than the other top prospects, and plays relatively stiff, but is extremely powerful and fundamentally sound.[Paul Perillo] Plays RT and LT; Pretty athletic for size; Moves and seals well.

THE REST:

Pos.RankPlayerSchoolHt.Wt.40
OTJamon MeredithSouth Carolina6-53045.0
Notes: [Andy Hart] Experience at G and T. Good strength and athlete. Little slow off ball and gets too wide at times.[Erik Scalavino]Rare athleticism for a guy this size, which allows him to move around well. Very versatile.[Paul Perillo] Excellent mobility; Good in pass protection; Gets out front as lead blocker as well.
OTWilliam BeattyConnecticut6-63075.1
Notes: [Andy Hart] Very overrated. Plays too high. Not great feet. Catches rushers. Not elite hands, feet or technique.[Erik Scalavino]Another player with good athleticism and sound fundamentals.[Paul Perillo] Doesn't always use hands well; Showed strength; Decent mobility; Not bad.
OTPhil LoadholtOklahoma6-83325.55
Notes: [Andy Hart] Slow feet and gets overextended b/c of it. Finishes blocks. Lot of two-point stance. Trouble off edge but can move peope. RT.[Erik Scalavino] Enormous, but perhaps a step slow. Worth developing as a mid-to-late-round pick.[Paul Perillo] Needs to improve footwork; Good strength; Not real athletic; Possible late-round pick.
OTFenuki TupouOregon6-53145.4
Notes: [Andy Hart] Another two-point stance guy. Gets flat footed at times. But pretty good technique and solid football player. [Erik Scalavino] Moves well for his size. Good developmental prospect. [Paul Perillo] Excellent feet/mobility; Keeps the rusher wide; Good pop on initial charge; Good athlete.
OTTroy KropogTulane6-53095.3
Notes: [Andy Hart] Needs more bulk and strength. Slow off the ball and catches rushers. Can be beat with either speed or power at various times.[Erik Scalavino] Great size but still a bit raw.[Paul Perillo] Good power/a real mauler; Needs better arm extension; Let's defender into his body too often.
OTAlex BooneOhio State6-73285.2
Notes: [Andy Hart] Bit of a bully blocker. Slow with a good build. Lets rushers get to his body.[Erik Scalavino]Massive frame. Downside is he's not very quick. Very experienced, however, as a four-year starter in Columbus.[Paul Perillo] Lacks quickness/athleticism; Real strong and locks onto his blocks well.

No footage available.
OTAugustus ParrishKent State6-43025.35
Notes: [Andy Hart] Gets off the ball and takes good angles. OK athlete. Little high in pass pro. OK in space. Good pulls. Guard?. [Erik Scalavino] At his size, he might be better suited as a guard in the NFL.[Paul Perillo] Good power and drive; Locks on real well; Good athlete who looked good in PP and run blocking; Interesting prospect.
OTJason WatkinsFlorida6-63185.47
Notes: [Andy Hart] Slow feet but good size and base. Gets beat to edge. RT? Not great angles.[Erik Scalavino]Versatile and surprisingly athletic for his size. Still needs a lot of work, but could be a nice developmental pick in later rounds.[Paul Perillo] Plays both LT and RT; Not quick enough for the left side though; Slow feet; Got help often on his tape.

OG2Herman JohnsonLSU6-73645.5
Notes: [Andy Hart] Weak for his size. Not quick and slow to react at times. Not the road grader should be.[Erik Scalavino]An absolute monster. Amazing agility for someone his size.

C3Eric WoodLouisville6-43105.17
