4 Frank Ragnow OL35 x Arkansas Sr 6050 312 1-2

USA Today -Versatile blocker with a massive frame & the Razorbacks’ anchor until his streak of 33 consecutive starts was ended by an ankle injury midseason 2017. Even with the missed action, Ragnow still earned all-conference honors. Track record of success speaks for itself, with plenty of starts at both guard and center. That versatility will be of great value at the next level, where injuries force teams to carry depth players who can plug in at multiple spots. Ragnow’s experience and polish could make him that rare mid-round pick who can start from Day 1....

Lindy's - Ranks 3 - Powerfully built...rare size for a center but can remain there due to knee-bend...schematic and positional versatiilty a hallmark...good snap-to-step quickness...Strong-handed (jolts and ragdolls opponents)...May not test well (less than ideal straight-line speed)...Undersized DT's may give him trouble. Medical (ankle)...

PFW - Very good length for a center...Team and group leader..Makes all the line calls...Hard-worker who keeps improving...needs to get a bit stronger.. (Why)? Played season at 315 lbs but showed up at Senior Bowl weighing 307...Can play tall at times/can lose some anchor...Medical (ankle)...Versatile....eventual starter.

Combine: Forty: DNR

BP: 26

6 Bradley Bozeman x Alabama Sr 6050E 314E x

Lindy's - Ranks 6 - Rare size for position...classic pancake drive blocker...average knee bendand lateral agility ...Product of Ala pro-style attack...will always striggle with quick DT's...

PFW - Strong points are his size and natural strength...Knows how to use his hands...alert blocker...makes all the line calls...tough and competitive...Short-arms...not very athletic to get to the 2nd level...not explosive...lacks a natural anchor & can give ground to bull-rushers...good college player with smarts and alertness but lacks the physical traits needed to be anything more than a backup...makes the line calls.

Combine: Forty: DNR ...

7 Coleman Shelton OL39 34 Washington Sr 6030 292 x

Lindy's - Not the biggest or strongest center but is among the quickness...Short, stubby frame/best attribute may be his light feet and balance...Looks maxed out at 300...Hands could be more explosive...Very competive & highly respected...

PFW -

Combine: Forty: DNR

BP: NA...VJ: 26.5...BJ: 110...SS: 4.59...3C: 7.62 ... ...

8+ Brian Allen OL01 x Michigan St. Sr 6010 298 x

Lindy's - Ranks #9 - Tough but lacks ideal height. Worth a late-round shot...

PFW - Snaps with left hand...good run blocker...not the most athletic guy - quickness and COD just average..Started every game at center...Biggest problem is that he doesn't get his hands on his opponent quickly enough....Needs to become stronger and quicker and use his hands better.

Combine: Forty: 5.34

BP: 27...VJ: 26.5...BJ: 99...SS: 4.71...3C: 7.81 ......

5 Will Clapp OL06 x LSU x 6040 311 x

Lindy's -Forest Gump type player...Long, lean & narrow-hipped....Not the most athletic prospect but has the size,height, snap-to-step quicks, punch and hand strength to project as an early competitor in a power-based scheme...Top heavy frame creating balance issues at POA...Nasty finisher with the length to play OG in the pros...

PFW - as a guard- Three yard starter (2 at OG; one at OC)...Consistently looks to finish blocks....aggressive with a strong, competitive attitude...Alert and aware...makes the line calls...Good punch, good mirror skills...good punch in pass pro...not a top athlete...has quicks but lacks speed...knows how to play, use his hands and keep good positioning on his opponent...Equally effective as a run or pass blocker...May never be an All Pro, but some club will be happy he's on their team.

Combine: Forty: 5.39

BP: 25...VJ: 29.0...BJ: 97...SS: 4.92...3C: 8.04 ......

Mason Cole OL07

x Michigan x 6040 307 x

USA Today - Versatile prospect with starting experience at multiple spots...Cole has been the anchor for the Wolverines up front throughout his career, regardless of where he’s lined up. His 51 consecutive starts are the most by any offensive lineman in Michigan history...Though the majority of Cole’s experience has been at left tackle, a deeper look at the film shows he might project better as a center at the next level. His frame and arm length are rare for the position, and he looked more effective and consistent as a blocker when lined up inside. Intelligence and awareness make him a strong center prospect, but his versatility will certainly be a bonus for NFL teams...

Lindy's - Jack of all trades/master of none...Versatility and nasty playing-temperment are his calling cards...Squarish frame....With the exception of length/leverage issues has the frame, lower body and thick legs and wide hips suitable for the position...Looks to bury his man/not just block him...High pad level a concern...

PFW - as a tackle - Alert, tough and smart...Plays with good strength...Consistent run and pass blocker...not a top athlete...on the ground too often...short arms...has experience at center and should be also able to play OG.

Combine: Forty: 5.23

BP: 23...VJ: 23.5...BJ: 104...SS: 4.78...3C: 7.77 ......

1 Billy Price OL33 xx Ohio St x 6040 305 x

USA Today - Last year, Pat Elflein turned out to be a huge steal for the Vikings in the third round. The NFL will likely learn from that mistake this time around by not letting Price fall that far. (Price is) a smart, physical player with experience at both guard and center...has anchored an Ohio State unit that has been dominant at times throughout the 2017 season.....a plug-and-play starter at either position at the next level.. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him sneak into the first round.

Lindy's - Ranks #1 - Built like he was born to play center...Powerful lower-body with fire hydrants for limbs...Terrific power....Technically sound in pass pro...Some errant shotgun snaps...Smart, athletic and powerful enough to play all three interior positions...Checks off a lot of boxes for a first round possibility...

PFW - Ranks #1 at Center - Four year starter (at OG or OC)...Very physical style...Quick off the ball...Consistent pass blocker...Tape is excellent...rugged, strong and physical player...short arms...can start right away at OC or OG for most teams....Better prospect than his OSU predecessor (Elflein). He's stronger and more physical...Can see him as a future Pro Bowl player.

Combine: Forty: DNR* ...

2 James Daniels OL10 x Iowa x 6030 306 x

USA Today - One of this year’s hottest names among interior blockers & an intriguing prospect with all the physical and mental tools to be an immediate starter at the next level. A two-year starter at center for the Hawkeyes, Daniels missed a few games due to injury over those two campaigns, but nothing major that should impact his draft stock. Anchored a physical, effective unit that paved the way for Akrum Wadley and company. Don’t be surprised if he comes off the board earlier than many currently expect....

Lindy's - Ranks #2 - Rare blend of body-style and athleticism...Has easy athleticism and rare body control...Highest upside of this position-group...One more Iowa "Junkyard Dog."...Won't turn 21 till Sept..Not yet the sum of his parts...pad level rises as he tires....

PFW - Good size...very long arms...can get bigger...good pass blocker...not a power player - more finesse than physical...Good natural size and frame to grow in ...Extremely consistent player (both run and pass)...Heady player...will come right away and start at center...Young - still growing.

Combine: Forty: DNR

BP: 21...VJ: 30.5...BJ: 108...SS: 4.40...3C: 7.29... ...

10 Sean Welsh OL46 x x x 6030 306 x

PFW -

Combine: Forty: 5.43

BP: 20...VJ: 25.0...BJ: 103...SS: 4.81...3C: 7.90 ....

9 Scott Quessenberry x UCLA x 6037 314 x

PFW - Good athlete with quick feet...Plays with some bend...good hand placement...Medical (Surgery on both shoulders)...Adequate as a run and pass blocker...lacks a consistent anchor......
