Offensive tackle

1 | Laremy Tunsil*, Mississippi

HEIGHT: 6-5 | WEIGHT: 310 | 40: 5.23

Andy Hart: Looks the part. 3yr starter, but suspension and off-field questions. Latches on and keeps his feet. Could show more power but very good athlete. Good hands and punch. Lunges and gets off balance at times. Very good prospect, but not 'revolutionary" as some have described him.

Paul Perillo: Powerful; Good feet; Locks on; Chases wide PR at times; Solid but not as dominant as a potential No. 1 overall pick should be.

2 | Taylor Decker, Ohio State

HEIGHT: 6-7 | WEIGHT: 310 | 40: 5.23

Andy Hart: My favorite first-round tackle. Captain. Reportedly great character and work ethic. Good power. Can run block. Slow off ball at times and quickness could be a question. Still, lot to like.

Paul Perillo:Prototypical size; Plays with good leverage; Solid.

3 | Ronnie Stanley*, Notre Dame

HEIGHT: 6-6 | WEIGHT: 312 | 40: 5.2

Andy Hart: RT and LT experience. 40 starts. Has all the tools. Light on his feet. Not everly powerful. Gets too high and off balance at times. Needs some coaching and technique work but has great potential.

Paul Perillo: Solid base; Good power; Locks on well; Nice leverage.

4 | Jack Conklin*, Michigan State

HEIGHT: 6-6 | WEIGHT: 308 | 40: 5

Andy Hart: Former walk-on with 40 starts. Not an elite athlete or everly light on his feet. Right tackle? Good base and power. Will struggled with speed and athleticism of pass rushers at LT in NFL.

5 | Shon Coleman, Auburn

HEIGHT: 6-6 | WEIGHT: 313 | 40: 5.18

Andy Hart: 25yo rookie after dealing with luekemia. Big and powerful. Good not great athlete but can get downfield. Moves people. Probably NFL RT. Feet need work. Big upside.

Jason Spriggs, Indiana

HEIGHT: 6-6 | WEIGHT: 301 | 40: 4.94
