Offensive Linemen DataBase

BPA Rnk Name Po Rnk School   Ht Wt Rd
4 Penel Sewell OT 1 Oregon   6-6 330 1

Forty: NA

330 pounds, yet can mirror defensive backs in space. Special movement skills. High cut, but can still sink his hips and drive. Led nation in big-time blocks in 2019 (13). Punch deadens on contact. Power throughout entire frame. Won't turn 21 until the fall. Was dominating juniors and seniors as a 19-year-old. But Screen-heavy offense at Oregon limited his true one-on-ones. Faced very few top-tier pass rushers in the Pac-12. Didn't get to see him in 2020, as he opted out of the season. Agility is good, not great. Others in the class adjust better in space.

 

13
Chiristian Darrisaw OT
2 Virginia Tech   6-5 314 1

Forty: NA

Ox of an OT. Defenders move when he hits them. 13 big-time blocks tied for second among OTs. Punch stops rushers in their tracks. Upper-body strength is tremendous. Never gets out of control or overextended. Confident with his plan. Faced a slate of talented edge players in the ACC who will be playing in the NFL. But too quick to open up outside hip and let defenders run the loop on him. Patient to a fault at times. No urgency when loses control of blocks. Run-heavy Virginia Tech offense rarely left him on an island. Only one year of elite grading. Massive leap from 2019 to 2020

 

14 Rashawn Slater OT 3 Northwestern   6-4 315 1

Forty: 4.88

Feet are as impressive as you'll see from a tackle. Could be a world-class tap dancer. Flies out of his stance. Makes up ground on defenders in a hurry in run and pass games. Processing speed is incredible. Adjusts to stunts/slants/blitzes in blink of an eye. Such a natural athlete. Can play anywhere on the offensive line. But anchor not ideal yet. Flatbacked too easily on tape and walked into pocket. Size and arm length will scare teams at tackle, although I still think he can get it done. Rarely imposes will at the line of scrimmage. Not a people mover. Didn't get to see him on the field in 2020, as he opted out of the season.

19 Alijah Vera-Tucker IOL 4 USC   6-4 315 1

Forty: NA

Looked as if he could easily kick out to tackle with his play there in 2020. Exceptional awareness. Reacts to the unexpected like it was expected. Extremely steady on a down-to-down basis. Doesn't get in bad positions. Feet never stop churning in the run game. Will take linebackers for a ride. But nothing special athletically. Showed up when he was pulling to the edge. Quicks and length mean he's likely a guard — not a tackle, where he played in 2020. Got dominated by only legit NFL talent he faced in Oregon's Kayvon Thibodeaux.

 

23 Teven Jenkins OT 5 Oklahoma St   6-6 320 1

Forty: NA

Grown-man strength. Tosses around smaller edges. Impressive strength in hands and upper body. Imposes will when he gets hold of guys. Terrific balance in pass sets. Rare to see him out over his toes. Crafty with his hands. Doesn't let defenders into his body. But not particularly fleet of foot. Mirror ability is average. Redshirt senior who will be 23 on draft day. Makes it easier to look stronger in college. Untested against top edge talent in the Big 12. Faced a lot of three-man rushes because of how teams defended OK State's offense.

 

35 Jalen Mayfield OT 6 Michigan   6-5 320 2

Forty: NA

Does not move like a 320-pounder. Very nimble big man who holds the weight easily. No fear of the bull rush. Very strong core. Ridiculously powerful for being only 20 years old. So many reps ended on the turf. Saw marked improvement from 2019 to 2020. But hands are a mess in pass protection. Holds them high, begging for defenders to swat them away. Constantly out over his toes. Finds himself off- balance a lot. Impatient out of stance. Overextends to win leverage battle. Only one season as full-time starter then two games in 2020.

37 Alex Leatherwood OT 7 Alabama   6-6 320 2

Forty: NA

Tree trunks for arms. When he locks them out, defenders are doomed. Very stout lower half. Can be a true line-of- scrimmage mover. 14 big-time blocks last year. Knows how to use length to his advantage. Like a Venus flytrap closing on defenders. Pro-ready depth in his pass sets. Nice, balanced kick slide. But plays with ridiculously wide base. Limits agility and recovery ability. Gets cornered far too easily. A little stiff-hipped. Struggles to locate at the second level. Quick linebackers gave him problems. Tendency to lurch into contact rather than drive feet. Leads to too many whiffs.

 

47 Carman Jackson 8 Clemson   6-5 335 2

Forty: NA

52 Creed Humphrey IOL 9 Oklahoma   6-5 320 2

Forty: NA

Some of the best hands in the class. If he's in your pads, he's staying there. Upper-body strength is a plus. Can take a nose tackle out of the hole. Versatile body type and skill set to play any position on the interior. Three years of starting experience. Has 2,488 career snaps to his name. But had a whale of a time gaining leverage on squatty nose tackles. Unchallenged often in Oklahoma's offense with the three-man rushes they face. Got dominated by the few NFL DTs he faced in the past (Quinnen Williams/Bravvion Roy). Middling athlete. Playing out in space is not his strong suit.

 

54 Wyatt Davis IOL 10 Ohio St   6-4 315 2

Forty: NA

His balance is elite. He only goes to the ground when he's pancaking someone. Already uses hands independently. Keeps defensive linemen guessing. No panic. There are losses on tape, but he fights to the end to recover them. Ideal physical tools for a guard in the NFL. But grading took a bit of a step back in 2020 from what we saw in 2019. Eyes can be late to recognize linebackers coming downhill or to pick up stunts. Was involved in a notable amount of miscommunications this season. Had some issues locating at the second level. A little impatient climbing.

 

67 Dillon Radunz OT 11 No Dakota St   6-6 299 3

Forty: NA

Glides in space. Can do anything you'd ask a tackle to do athletically. Explodes off the line of scrimmage. Can take guys for a ride at snap. Hand placement is tremendous in run game. Consistently gains leverage with inside placement. Mentality that line coaches will love. Mauls like a wrestler. But waist bender in pass protection. Anxious to get first contact because weak anchor. Run-heavy offense. Not a ton of pass sets on tape. Thin base. Will come into play far more against NFL-caliber strength. Average grades considering FCS competition. 77.3 mark in 2019.

 

68 Samuel Cosmi OT 12 Texas   6-7 309 3

Forty: 4.84

Terrific overall athlete. Looked like a tight end when he scored a TD against WVU in 2019. Can sink low and drive when he wants to at 6- foot-7. Six big-time blocks this past season. Great at opening hips and riding rushers past the top of the pocket. Three years of starting in pass-heavy offense between both tackle positions. But shuffle out in pass protection leaves him off balance and unable to adjust quickly. Dreaded waist bender. Slips off blocks too easily because of it. Late out of his stance a noticeable number of times on tape. Tendency to play high in pass protection. Leaves himself very susceptible to bull rush.

 

73 Trey Smith IOL 13 Tennesee   6-6 330 3

Forty: NA

The type of offensive lineman who dives to block a guy already on the ground. Uncoachable pop in his hands. he stops defenders in their tracks. Experience across multiple positions over his career. Started at left tackle in 2018. Legitimate reasons for limited development. Hasn't had many offseasons. But like a power-hitter swinging for the fences. Goes for the home-run block too much. Awareness on stunts, blitzes, etc., has been an issue. Too many missed assignments. Heavy feet which leads to an inability to recover blocks. Medical history of blood clots in his lungs.

 

80 Deonte Brown IOL 14 Alabama   6-4 350 3

Forty: NA

Elite drive blocker. Doubt he's lost many Oklahoma drills. Stays square off line of scrimmage in the run game. Some bone-crushing double teams. Starting experience at both guard positions: 500- plus snaps at each Locating is an issue, but still plays with balance on the move. Can clear a hole pulling on power But quicks are seriously lacking. Won't make NFL- level cutoffs of LBs. Gets in trouble overreacting in pass pro and opening up hips. Gives his hands to defenders too easily. Punch isn't as deadening as you'd expect. Little to no recover ability. Struggles to "win ugly."

 

83 Walker Little OT 15 Stanford   6-7 320 3

Forty: NA

Looks like a rocked-up tight end. Impressive muscle distribution throughout frame. Anchor that could keep a cruise ship in place. Powerful core. Showed marked improvement in pass sets from sophomore year to junior year despite one game. Feet you don't usually see for a 6-foot-7 tackle. Stellar mirror ability. But no clue what kind of development he's undergone. One game in past two years. Sets square to LOS instead of square to defender. Hips end up flying open against speed rush. Knee injury suffered Week 1 in 2019 ended season. High cut and can get outleveraged in run game. Not consistent generating movement.

 

90 James Hudson III OT 16 Cincinnati   6-5 310 3

Forty: NA

Smooth mover. Easy location ability at the second level. Can see how gifted his feet are reacting to inside moves and reacting to stunts. Enforcer mentality. Rare to see him finish a play without at least a shove. Defensive line background shows with his flexibility. Easy for him to fire off low. But discombobulated kick slides. Gets in poor positions. Lunges often. Anxious and jumpy in pass protection. Head down diving into blocks without using hands. Almost like he's trying to tackle guys. One year as a starter at tackle. 760 career snaps.

 

100 Josh Myers IOL 17 Ohio St   6-5 312 4

Forty: NA

Wants to go for the killshot. Can pancake a linebacker on contact. Explosive off line of scrimmage. Can get movement one-on-one. Has the size and agility to even play guard in the NFL. Can get to the second level in a hurry. Quicks aren't a problem. But a little tight. Rarely see him able to flip hips and ride guys past QB when he loses. Bent out over toes consistently. Leads to balance issues. When he loses, it's oftentimes on contact. Gave up six sacks past two seasons. Hands are average. Rare to see him engage cleanly and lock in on the move.

 

102 Landon Dickerson IOL 18 Alabama   6-6 325 4

Forty: NA

Built like a fridge. Not a dorm mini-fridge, either. Industrial size. More pancakes on his 2020 tape than anyone in the country — 14 big-time blocks. The way he approaches every snap is an offensive line coach's dream. Will be a fan favorite, too. Executed pro-style scheme at Alabama. Not limited despite massive size. But tape didn't turn dominant until fifth-year of college when he was a man among boys. Tore ACL in the SEC title game in December. Not as athletic as some in class, but that's not really a big deal at center.

 

109 Liam Eichenberg OT 19 Notre DAme   6-6 302 4

Forty: NA

Has the look and feel of an OL who could be around for 10+ years - Gollin.

Outstanding at establishing leverage with hands. Quick to reset to low positioning. Scheme independent. Could do whatever asked in varied Notre Dame rushing attack. Textbook pass sets in NFL-esque dropback passing-heavy offense. Barely tipping scales at 300 pounds, but play strength was never an issue. Well proportioned. But length gave him fits. Needs to be better getting defenders off his pads. Utilizes two-handed punch. Kiss of death in the NFL. Has to use hands independently. Too often puts all he has into his punch. When it doesn't land, he's completely off balance. Average athlete. Not going to "wow" with movement skills.

 

114 Bryce Hargrove 20 Pitt   6-4 320 4

Forty: NA
