2019 NFL Draft: Offensive Tackle Rankings





Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: February 3, 2019.



  1. Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama Projected Round Top 10 Pick

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 301 lb Jonah Williams improved his ability to maintain blocks at the left tackle position maintaining blocks from 3-5 seconds to 5-7 seconds. Williams looked like a sure-fire top 5 pick for most of the season until an awful game against Clemson where he was exposed on tape. I also posted a film session of Jonah Williams versus Louisville on our Youtube channel.




    Jonah Williams SWOT Report

    Strengths: Jonah Williams is a natural pass blocker. He did not have a single sack allowed in 2018 and only 3 quarterback hurries allowed all season. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. Has the run blocking footwork that you want. High football IQ. Starts at multiple positions on the offensive line with a full season at both left tackle and right tackle. Maintains blocks for 5-7 seconds which is what you want in an offensive lineman. Keeps his back straight. Shows proper knee bend.


    Extremely durable. Durability is not an issue. Displays excellent leadership. Was a team captain in High School. Gets to the second level.


    Weaknesses: Unlike McGlinchey, the top offensive tackle in the 2018 NFL Draft, who struggled with speed rushers, Williams struggles versus strength rushers. Clelin Ferrell showed why this is the case. He tends to place his arms to low on blocks at times. His pass blocking strength, run blocking strength, and pass blocking footwork needs to improve in the NFL. Struggles with double teams. Jonah Williams only has one year of consistent play when it comes to maintaining blocks for 5-7 seconds.


    Opportunities: 5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 6. New York Giants, 7. Jacksonville Jaguars, 9. Buffalo Bills, and 10. Denver Broncos.


    Threats: Jonah Williams has really short arms for an offensive tackle. He also has a limited frame. That is the biggest reason he has the ceiling of a Pro Bowler rather then the ceiling of a blue chip left tackle such as Mike Mcglinchey.


    Potential Grade: 93/99



    Before 2018

    Jonah Williams was a five star recruit in High School just like Mike McGlinchey. He chose Alabama over in-state USC ranked the second best player in the state of California coming out of High School.


    Jonah Williams began his career as a right tackle next to Cam Robinson in 2016. He moved over to left tackle in 2017 and helped Alabama win a College Football Playoff as a sophomore in 2017. Williams showed he could transition to left tackle, but he only maintained blocks for 3-5 seconds. He needs to take that next step and maintain blocks for 5-7 seconds at left tackle in 2018.




  2. Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State Projected Round 1st Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-4 308 lb Dalton Risner is a lot more complete than scouts are making him out to be. He can play left guard, center, right guard, or right tackle with his versatility.


    Risner did well on tape versus Montez Sweat in both Kansas State's game against Mississippi State as well as the 2019 Senior Bowl.


    Dalton Risner SWOT Report

    Strengths: Dalton Risner is a natural pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. Pass blocking strength, run blocking strength, pass blocking footwork, and run blocking footwork checks out. High football IQ. Extremely durable. Durability is not an issue. One of five Kansas State Wildcats to be a three time team captain.


    Maintains blocks for 5-7 seconds which is what you want in an offensive lineman. Keeps his back straight. Shows proper knee bend. Gets to the second level and can take on double teams.


    Has long arms and ideal arm length to translate to offensive tackle in the NFL. Risner is one of the most complete right tackles that I have seen on tape in years.


    Weaknesses: He's not a left tackle and that is one position you cannot plug Risner into if you expect him to succeed. His ceiling isn't as big as Jonah Williams, but you could argue he is a safer player with fewer weaknesses.


    Opportunities: 7. Jacksonville Jaguars, 9. Buffalo Bills, 10. Denver Broncos, 11. Cincinnati Bengals, and 13. Miami Dolphins.


    Threats: I don't see any threats with Dalton Risner. In fact, I think he's a safer prospect than Jonah Williams with less upside. Both offensive tackles look like Pro Bowlers heading into 2018.


    Potential Grade: 92/99



    Before 2018

    Dalton Risner redshirted in 2014. He played center in 2015 at Kansas State. Made the move to right tackle in 2016 and became a team captain as a sophomore redshirt. Maintained his stellar play and grew as a pass blocker in 2017. Majored in Communication Studies.




  3. Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State Projected Round 1st Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-4 310 lb left tackle is a three year starter at Washington State. He won All PAC 12 honors each of the last three seasons.


    Andre Dillard only gave up 1 sack in 2018 once Luke Falk moved on. Andre Dillard's brilliant pass protection really showed on tape allowing Gardner Minshew II and his mustache to thrive. Montez Sweat was the only player who got the best of Dillard in the 2019 Senior Bowl practices while pass rushers Charles Omenihu and Anthony Nelson both got by Dillard to sack him in the 2019 Senior Bowl game.


    Andre Dillard SWOT Report

    Strengths: Andre Dillard is an effective pass blocker. His pass blocking strength was there in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Maintains blocks for 5-7 seconds. Extremely durable. Durability is not an issue. Gets to the second level. Has extremely long arms. Great wingspan. Love his stance and pass blocking footwork. His run blocking, run blocking strength, run blocking footwork, and zone blocking check out too.


    Weaknesses: Andre Dillard struggled against pass rushers who knew how to use rip and swim moves. Struggles with double teams. He did well enough to warrant a first round grade, however he did not do well enough against Sweat, Omenihu, or Nelson to warrant a top 15 grade. Unlike Jonah Williams who can play both offensive tackle roles, Dillard is a pure left tackle.


    Opportunities: 16. Carolina Panthers, 17. Cleveland Browns, 18. Minnesota Vikings, 21. Seattle Seahawks, and 23. Houston Texans.


    Threats: I didn't see any threats with Andre Dillard. He's a pretty safe prospect. You could make an argument that his floor is better then Jonah Williams despite the fact that his ceiling isn't as high as Williams.


    Potential Grade: 91/99



    Before 2018

    Andre Dillard became Washington State's left tackle in 2015 as a freshman redshirt. He retained that role in 2016 and 2017. With a big season in 2018, Dillard could surge up boards.




  4. Max Scharping, OT, Northern Illinois Projected Round 1st Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-6 320 lb Max Scharping got the best of Khalil Hodge in the MAC Championship game. The four year starter has an exceptional football IQ along with versatility to play both left tackle and right tackle. He only allowed one sack in the past three seasons versus Iowa in 2018. Scharping held his own versus teams like Boston College, Florida State, Ball State, Buffalo, and Central Michigan.


    Max Scharping SWOT Report

    Strengths: Max Scharping is an outstanding pass blocker. He only allowed 1 sack in the past three seasons at left tackle to Iowa right end Anthony Nelson. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. Pass blocking strength, run blocking strength, pass blocking footwork, and run blocking footwork checks out. High football IQ. Extremely durable. Durability is not an issue.


    Capable of playing left tackle or right tackle with his versatility. Keeps his back straight. Shows proper knee bend. Gets to the second level and can take on double teams. Did well against NFL talent like Brian Burns and Khalil Hodge.


    Weaknesses: Only maintains blocks for 3-5 seconds. He's a lingering blocker rather then a constant blocker who maintains blocks for 5-7 seconds. His cut blocking, pull blocking, and reach blocking needs improvement. Has an inconsistent leg drive.


    Opportunities: 17. Cleveland Browns, 18. Minnesota Vikings, 21. Seattle Seahawks, 23. Houston Texans, and 25. Philadelphia Eagles.


    Threats: I do not see any threats with Max Scharping. He has experience playing both offensive tackle roles. He seems like someone with the ceiling to be a Pro Bowl caliber offensive tackle down the road.


    Potential Grade: 90/99



    Before 2018

    Max Scharping redshirted in 2014. Scharping took the right tackle job as a freshman redshirt in 2015. He'd go on to protect for three different quarterbacks that year before moving to left tackle in 2016. Once Scharping won the left tackle job, he never looked back.




  5. Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss Projected Round 1st Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-6 325 lb Greg Little did well in his second full season as the starting left tackle for Ole Miss. He struggled versus Alabama once again, but did well versus everyone else who did not have a blue chip pass rusher.


    Greg Little SWOT Report

    Strengths: His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. He has the run blocking strength and run blocking footwork. Played right tackle in High School before moving to left tackle at Ole Miss.


    Extremely durable. Durability is not an issue. Gets to the second level.


    Arguably the best offensive tackle in this draft when it comes to cut blocks, pull blocks, and reach blocks. Also has the biggest wingspan of any offensive tackle in the 2019 NFL Draft.


    Weaknesses: Only can maintain blocks for 1-3 seconds in pass protection. His pass blocking, pass blocking strength, and pass blocking footwork all need to improve.


    Opportunities: 18. Minnesota Vikings, 21. Seattle Seahawks, 23. Houston Texans, 25. Philadelphia Eagles, and 28. Los Angeles Chargers.


    Threats: Greg Little has no threats. If he could correct his pass blocking, you could argue he's the top offensive tackle in the 2019 NFL Draft.


    Potential Grade: 90/99



    Before 2018

    Greg Little was a right tackle at Allen High School in Texas where he led Allen High School to a State Championship in Texas. Like Jonah Williams, Greg Little was a five star recruit in High School.


    He got five starts as a freshman in 2016. Little started every game at left tackle in 2017 and was voted the thirty first best player in College Football after his sophomore season via NFL.com.




  6. Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia Projected Round 2nd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 321 lb Yodny Cajuste is a pure left tackle like Andre Dillard. Yodny Cajuste dominated with his pass blocking, run blocking, and zone blocking in 2018.


    Yondy Cajuste SWOT Report

    Strengths: Yodny Cajuste is a natural pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. Displays outstanding pass blocking strength and run blocking strength. His pass blocking footwork and run blocking footwork is effective as well. Did football and track in High School. Maintains blocks for 5-7 seconds on tape. He's a bull coming off the line. Has the leg extension and hand technique to make it as a left tackle in the NFL.


    Weaknesses: His biggest issue is flexibility. He's a pure left tackle so putting him anywhere else besides left tackle is gonna backfire. He also struggles with lateral redirections.


    Opportunities: 39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 47. Carolina Panthers, 49. Cleveland Browns, 50. Minnesota Vikings, and 53. Philadelphia Eagles.


    Threats: Yodny Cajuste has small arms like Jonah Williams that appear to be guard arms rather then left tackle arms. Also, Cajuste is injury prone. He was placed on injured reserve in 2015 and 2016 despite staying healthy at West Virginia the past two seasons. He also did not play in any of the three All Star Games whether it be the Senior Bowl, East West Shrine Game, or the NFLPA Bowl.


    Potential Grade: 89/99



    Before 2018

    Yodny Cajuste dealt with injuries early in his career. If he can stay healthy in 2018 like he did in 2017, then it may be enough for teams to look past his injuries.




  7. Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida Projected Round 2nd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 328 lb right tackle looked a lot better in 2018 after dropping 22 lbs going from 350 lbs to 328 lbs. His pass blocking, run blocking, and zone blocking is there as far as play at the right tackle position goes.


    Jawaan Taylor actually tested Kentucky pass rusher Josh Allen. That is one reason why many pundits have a first round grade on Jawaan Taylor.


    Jawaan Taylor SWOT Report

    Strengths: Jawwan Taylor is an effective pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. The pass blocking and run blocking strength that Taylor displays checks out as he can maintain blocks for 5-7 seconds. His pass blocking footwork and run blocking footwork is good. Extremely durable. High football IQ. Gets to the second level. His heavy hands and powerful leg drive are amazing traits with his tape as well. Plays with leverage when blocking. May possess the most violent hands of any offensive tackle in this draft. Has cleaned up issues with his kick slide. Has long arms. Versatile enough to play left tackle or right tackle, but is a better fit at right tackle.


    Weaknesses: Doesn't always get his hands on a defender. Jawaan Taylor packs a punch when he gets his hands on a defender. He doesn't always get his hands on a defender due to reacting too quickly or taking the wrong angle when blocking. Taylor needs to clean this part of his game up as a right tackle, but he checks all the other boxes when it comes to playing the right tackle position in the NFL. Sometimes places his arms too low on his blocks like Jonah Williams.


    Opportunities: 39. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 40. Buffalo Bills, 41. Denver Broncos, 42. Cincinnati Bengals, and 48. Miami Dolphins.


    Threats: There are no threats with Jawaan Taylor. While he doesn't have the ceiling of a Pro Bowl offensive tackle, he probably has one of the five best floors and is one of the safest offensive tackles you can draft.


    Potential Grade: 88/99



    Before 2018

    Jawaan Taylor started at right tackle right away as a freshman in 2016. Taylor continued to play at right tackle in 2017 and even started 2 games at left tackle last season. Taylor will remain at right tackle in 2018 with left tackle Martez Ivey coming back.




  8. David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin Projected Round 2nd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-7 315 lb right tackle started the first ten games of the 2018 season. David Edwards missed the final three games of the season due to an injury.


    David Edwards SWOT Report

    Strengths: David Edwards is an effective pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is good as well. Extremely durable. High football IQ. Gets to the second level.


    Weaknesses: His pass blocking strength and run blocking strength needs to improve. So does his pass blocking footwork and run blocking footwork. Gets pushed around way too much on tape. A pure right tackle only.


    Opportunities: 40. Buffalo Bills, 41. Denver Broncos, 48. Miami Dolphins, 50. Minnesota Vikings, and 54. Houston Texans.


    Threats: David Edwards missed the final three games of the season due to an injury. Durability could be a concern if he does not show up at the 2019 NFL Combine.


    Potential Grade: 88/99



    Before 2018

    David Edwards played quarterback, tight end, defensive end, outside linebacker, and long snapper in High School. He redshirted and converted to right tackle in 2016 as a freshman redshirt. Edwards had his best season as a sophomore redshirt in 2017. David Edwards could be a first round pick wiht a huge junior redshirt campaign.




  9. Bobby Evans, OT, Oklahoma Projected Round 2nd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 301 lb Bobby Evans was a bookend right tackle to Orlando Brown. He finally took over at left tackle in 2018.


    Bobby Evans SWOT Report

    Strengths: Bobby Evans is a natural pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. Displays outstanding pass blocking strength and run blocking strength. His pass blocking footwork is incredible for someone that is over 330 lbs. Opened things up for the running back Rodney Anderson. Also protected Baker Mayfield in 2017 as well as Kyler Murray in 2018. Is versatile enough to play right tackle, left guard, or right guard. High football IQ. Served as Orlando Brown's bookend before becoming Oklahoma's left tackle in 2018. Very agile for an offensive lineman and he learned how to be that agile by watching Orlando Brown.


    Weaknesses: Struggles with speed rushers. Only maintained blocks for 1-3 seconds versus Alabama.


    Opportunities: 41. Denver Broncos, 48. Miami Dolphins, 50. Minnesota Vikings, 54. Houston Texans, and 60. Los Angeles Chargers.


    Threats: Bobby Evans has 40 career starts and the versatility to play offensive tackle on either side. He has no threats as far as I'm concerned.


    Potential Grade: 88/99



    Before 2018

    Bobby Evans beat out Greg Little for the left tackle job at Allen High School in Texas. Little was a right tackle before going to Ole Miss and making the transition to left tackle. Evans doesn't have the upside Little has, but I'd argue Evans has a much better floor then Little. After being redshirted he became Orlando Brown's bookend for two seasons at Oklahoma. After Brown left, he made the transition from right tackle to left tackle.




  10. Cody Ford, OT, Oklahoma Projected Round 3rd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-4 335 lb Cody Ford started all 14 games at right tackle in 2018. Cody Ford really showed up and gave it his all in every game except the loss to Alabama in the College Football Playoff.


    Cody Ford SWOT Report

    Strengths: Cody Ford is a natural pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. Displays outstanding pass blocking strength and run blocking strength. His pass blocking footwork is incredible for someone that is over 330 lbs. Opened things up for the running back Rodney Anderson. Also protected Baker Mayfield in 2017 as well as Kyler Murray in 2018. Is versatile enough to play right tackle, left guard, or right guard. High football IQ. Has arguably the biggest kick slide of any offensive tackle in this years draft and learned how to kick slide by watching Orlando Brown in 2017. Knows how to punch at the point of attack. Dominates his opponents with tenacity. Very agile for an offensive lineman and he learned how to be that agile by watching Orlando Brown.


    Weaknesses: Cody Ford has inconsistent footwork. That's one issue with Ford. He arms are too low on some of his blocks. Struggles with speed rushers. Only maintained blocks for 1-3 seconds versus Alabama.


    Opportunities: I have a third round grade on Cody Ford. Other scouts are willing to look past the fact that he could only maintain blocks for 1-3 seconds versus his toughest opponent of the year in Alabama. I can't do that which is why I have a third round grade on him.


    Threats: Cody Ford has guard arms. If he struggles at the 2019 NFL Combine, he could end up kicking inside to guard.


    Potential Grade: 87/99



    Before 2018

    Cody Ford redshrited in 2015. He came in and started 3 games at left guard in 2016 and 4 games at left guard in 2017. Cody Ford is making the transition from left guard to right tackle so we'll see how he does in 2018.




  11. Andre James, OT, UCLA Projected Round 2nd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 305 lb Andre James became UCLA's blindside in 2018 after Kolton Miller left. Andre James did a fantastic job on tape and only a bad 2019 NFL Combine can hurt his stock.


    Andre James SWOT Report

    Strengths: Has the pass blocking, run blocking, and zone blocking you look for. Displayed superb pass blocking strength and run blocking strength at the left tackle position. Dominated as a pass blocker and run blocker. Has the pass blocking footwork that you want in an offensive tackle. Has experience at right tackle. Maintains blocks for 5-7 seconds.


    Weaknesses: Andre James has hardly any weaknesses. He doesn't have the ceiling of a blue chip left tackle that Kolton Miller had despite the fact that Miller was a project, but he has fewer weaknesses then Miller did on tape.


    Opportunities: 41. Denver Broncos, 48. Miami Dolphins, 50. Minnesota Vikings, 54. Houston Texans, and 60. Los Angeles Chargers.


    Threats: There are no threats with Andre James. He appears to be a safe prospect on paper.


    Potential Grade: 87/99



    Before 2018

    Andre James was a bookend right tackle next to Kolton Miller in 2017. He helped Kolton Miller protect Josh Rosen. Andre James has a chance to surge up draft boards with a huge season in 2018.




  12. Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson Projected Round 3rd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 310 lb Mitch Hyatt is a four year starter at left tackle for Clemson. Hyatt has excellent footwork. Hyatt put on 15 lbs of muscle to go from 295 lbs to 310 lbs. Hyatt had his best season in 2018 since his freshman season protecting the blindside of Trevor Lawrence.


    I hated Hyatt heading into this season cause he gave up so many quarterback hurries on tape in the 7 games I watched on him in 2016. He's been worse without Watson. Bradley Chubb was someone Hyatt had success with in 2016. Chubb exposed Hyatt though and got his revenge in 2017. Hyatt did so bad versus Florida State that Dabo Sweeney took him out at left tackle. Safe to say Hyatt is a backup left tackle unless he returns to school and improves his game.


    Mitch Hyatt SWOT Report

    Strengths: Mitch Hyatt is a natural pass blocker. He only allowed 0 sacks and 1 quarterback hurries all season in 2016. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. His pass blocking footwork and run blocking footwork is off the charts. You can argue Adams has better footwork and foot speed than any offensive tackle in this class outside of Trey Adams.


    Extremely durable. Durability is not an issue. Opened things up for running back Wayne Gallman and protected Deshaun Watson in 2016. Had hardly any penalties in 2016. Did well versus Bradley Chubb who is a first round prospect.


    Mitch Hyatt was able to go from maintaining blocks fro 1-3 seconds to 3-5 seconds in 2018 once he added more muscle and once Trevor Lawrence took over. He improved from being a temporary blocker to a lingering blocker. He's not a constant blocker.


    Weaknesses: Pass blocking strength and run blocking strength are a huge issue with Mitch Hyatt. Hyatt is a pure left tackle and there is no versatility for him to move to another position if he does terrible at left tackle in the NFL. I watched 7 games of Mitch Hyatt on tape. He struggled against Alabama, Boston College, Florida State, Louisville, and Ohio State. He may have only allowed 1 quarterback hurry statistically, but he got beat by opposing defensive ends and outside linebackers off the edge quite a bit in 2016 even if the statistics don't indicate that. Struggles with double teams and getting to the second level. May never develop into a cnstant blocker.


    NFL teams may value foot speed over anything else when it comes to offensive tackles, but I value a player that maintains blocks for a long period of time. I don't see that with Hyatt since he can only maintain blocks for 1-3 seconds. Watson wasn't the best decision maker and had questions with accuracy, but his quick release kept Hyatt from giving up a lot of sacks. NFL scouts confirmed this with Hyatt's horrible play without Deshaun Watson in 2017.


    Opportunities: Mitch Hyatt is a pure left tackle. I had a fifth round grade on him heading into the season, but he played well enough to move up to a third round grade. Hyatt looked a lot better in 2018.


    Threats: Gets penalized a lot. Got called for multiple false start penalties in the 2016 ACC Championship game. Mitch Hyatt got injured during the Boston College game in 2018.


    Potential Grade: 87/99



    Before 2018

    Mitch Hyatt was the number one ranked offensive tackle in the class of 2015. He dominated in 2015 with only 1 sack allowed and 1 quarterback hurry. He did even better in 2016 with 0 sacks allowed and 1 quarterback hurry. He got beat by opposing defenders in a lot of games and had trouble maintaining blocks.


    I hated Hyatt heading into this season cause he gave up so many quarterback hurries on tape in the 7 games I watched on him in 2016 despite what the stats said. He's been worse without Watson in 2017. Bradley Chubb was someone Hyatt had success with in 2016. Chubb exposed Hyatt though and got his revenge in 2017. Hyatt did so bad versus Florida State that Dabo Sweeney took him out at left tackle. Safe to say Hyatt is a backup left tackle unless he returns to school and improves his game.




  13. Aaron Montiero, OT, Boston College Projected Round 3rd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-7 320 lb Aaron Montiero looked like a first round pick heading into the preseason after dominating on tape in 2017. He now looks liek a third round pick.


    Aaron Montiero SWOT Report

    Strengths: Aaron Montiero has the pass blocking, pass blocking strength, run blocking, run blocking strength, pass blocking footwork, run blocking footwork, and zone blocking. He's a four year starter at left tackle. May possess more stamina then any offensive tackle in this draft since he took 100 snaps in one game versus Temple.


    Weaknesses: Doesn't always get his hands on defenders in passing situations. Gets lost in open space. Has a tendency to take wrong angle on blocks. Clelin Ferrell, Joe Jackson, and Brian Burns all got by Aaron Montiero in 2018.


    Opportunities: I have a third round grade on Aaron Montiero. I had a first round grade on him in the preseason. Aaron Montiero is a pure left tackle.


    Threats: I do not see any threats with Aaron Montiero. He looks like a future starting left tackle. Aaron Montiero did not play in the Senior Bowl, East West Shrine Game, or the NFLPA Bowl. If anything is a threat its his lack of exposure in these Senior All Star games.


    Potential Grade: 87/99



    Before 2018

    Aaron Montiero is a four year starter at left tackle. The Boston College left tackle dominated in 2017 and looks like a potential first round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft if he can match what he did in 2018.




  14. Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington Projected Round 3rd Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-6 321 lb Kaleb McGary has great size. Kaleb McGary is one of the most consistent right tackles in this draft and looks like a potential day 2 pick after doing well at the 2019 Senior Bowl.


    Kaleb McGary SWOT Report

    Strengths: Extremely durable with excellent size. Kaleb McGary has the pass blocking, run blocking, and zone blocking. His pass blocking strength and run blocking strength showed in Mobile as he maintained blocks for 5-7 seconds. He also showed the pass blocking footwork and run blocking footwork. Extremely durable.


    Weaknesses: Struggled versus tough opponents. McGary could only maintain a block for 1-3 seconds in Washington's opener versus Auburn. Also the fact that McGary is a pure right tackle sort of makes him one-dimensional.


    Opportunities: I have a third round grade on Kaleb McGary. Some NFL team will be getting a future right tackle that could start right away in 2019.


    Threats: Kaleb McGary has no threats. He's a safer offensive tackle prospect then teammate Trey Adams.


    Potential Grade: 87/99



    Before 2018

    Kaleb McGary never took the left tackle job from the injury prone Trey Adams. He's effective enough to start at right tackle, but that's his ceiling. He's mainly a right tackle who can use pass protection to buy Jake Browning time and run blocking to open up lanes for Myles Gaskin.




  15. Martez Ivey, OT, Florida Projected Round 4th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 315 lb left tackle played left guard the last two seasons after being a highly recruited five star recruit at left tackle in High School. He actually played left tackle, left guard, center, right guard, and right tackle in High School.


    Martez Ivey did better at left tackle as a senior. I still see him playing either right tackle, guard, or center in the NFL though.


    Martez Ivey SWOT Report

    Strengths: Martez Ivey is an effective pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. Extremely durable. High football IQ. Gets to the second level. Is a natural at stopping bull rushes with his pass blocking strength and run blocking strength. His strength for a right tackle is good and strength for a guard is great. Has the versatility to play all five spots on the offensive line.


    Weaknesses: Was a natural left tackle in High School. The thing with Ivey is he lacks the strength and footwork to be an NFL left tackle despite having the versatility to play all five spots on the offensive line. Has trouble getting hands on defenders at the left tackle position. Pass blocking strength, run blocking strength, pass blocking footwork, and run blocking footwork needs to improve. Gets beaten frequently on inside moves. Needs to improve his reaction timing and coordination with his hands.


    Opportunities: I had a second round grade on Martez Ivey last year. This year I have a fourth round grade on Ivey. I still think Ivey has the ability to be a decent starter despite being a day 3 pick.


    Threats: Ivey moved to left tackle the position he played in High School. His arms are short. He's probably a guard in the NFL with a right tackle ceiling at best. If you want Ivey as a left tackle you need to be prepared to coach and develop him without expecting an immediate impact, otherwise moving him to guard is your best bet.


    Potential Grade: 86/99



    Before 2018

    Martez Ivey was a five star recruit in the class of 2015 just like Mitch Hyatt. Ivey played left guard for two years at Florida. He's finally making the move to left tackle in 2017 after doing well at left guard in 2015 and 2016.


    Martez Ivey struggled at left tackle versus Michigan. He's gotten better at left tackle as the season progressed. He's versatile enough to play all five positions on the offensive line. He doesn't look like a left tackle on tape, but he kept Jawaan Taylor from taking the left tackle job from him and heads into the 2018 season as Florida's left tackle.




  16. Isaiah Prince, OT, Ohio State Projected Round 4th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-7 310 lb Isaiah Prince has three years of starting experience at right tackle. A lot of scouts have him graded higher then this, but I liked Jamarco Jones more then Prince last year. Prince didn't do anything to change my perception of him in 2018.


    Isaiah Prince SWOT Report

    Strengths: Isaiah Prince is an effective pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. High football IQ. Extremely durable.


    Weaknesses: Isaiah Prince misses assignments at times. He showed this on tape versus Michigan. Prince also lacks the pass blocking strength or run blocking strength. His pass blocking footwork and run blocking footwork is inconsistent. A lingering blocker who can hold a block for 4 seconds tops rather then a constant blocker.


    Opportunities: I have a fifth round grade on Isaiah Prince. Some people have a day 2 grade on Prince so he could go earlier than this.


    Threats: There are no threats with Isaiah Prince. He's a safe prospect, but there is limited upside. He's solid enough to start though.


    Potential Grade: 86/99



    Before 2018

    Isaiah Prince has started every game at right tackle since his sophomore season in 2016. Prince has been one of Ohio State's best starters over the past two seasons at Ohio State. Prince could have been a day 2 pick, but chose to return to Ohio State for his senior season.




  17. Dennis Daley, OT, South Carolina Projected Round 5th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 304 lb Dennis Daley enters his second year as a starter. He managed to beat out Zack Bailey for the left tackle job in 2017 and maintained that job. Also unlike Bailey, he got an invite to the 2019 Senior Bowl.


    Dennis Daley SWOT Report

    Strengths: Dennis Daley is a two year starter at left tackle. He has the run blocking, run blocking strength, zone blocking, pass blocking footwork, and run blocking footwork to be a borderline starter in the NFL.


    Weaknesses: The pass blocking and pass blocking strength needs to improve. This was evident with Dennis Daley on tape and during the 2019 Senior Bowl practices. Only maintains blocks for 1-3 seconds. A pure left tackle.


    Opportunities: I have a fifth round grade on Dennis Daley. I think he could be a borderline starter.


    Threats: He's a left tackle with arm length of a guard. There are no other threats with Dennis Daley. That's what makes Dennis Daley a borderline starter.


    Potential Grade: 85/99



    Before 2018

    Dennis Daley played left tackle and 4-3 right end for the Ridgeview Blazers in High School. Then Daley went to Georgia Military College where he was the left tackle for two seasons before accepting a football scholarship to South Carolina. Dennis Daley beat out Zack Bailey for the left tackle job on South Carolina in 2017.




  18. Zack Bailey, OT, South Carolina Projected Round 5th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-6 314 lb Zack Bailey can play right tackle, left guard, center, or right guard with his versatility. The only position he won't translate to in the NFL is left tackle.


    Zack Bailey SWOT Report

    Strengths: Zack Bailey has the pass blocking, pass blocking strength, pass blocking footwork you wish your right tackle would have. Good zone blocker. He will thrive in a short passing attack west coast offense. That's the only type of team he would succeed on.


    Weaknesses: Run blocking, run blocking strength, and run blocking footwork are things you'd like to see Bailey correct. Zack Bailey also needs to maintain blocks for more then 3-5 seconds.


    Opportunities: I had a fifth round grade on Zack Bailey. I like his pass protection more then Dennis Daley..


    Threats: Zack Bailey is a borderline starter. He has guard arms rather then tackle arms. Unlike Dennis Daley who relies on his run blocking, Zack Bailey relies on his pass protection.


    Potential Grade: 85/99



    Before 2018

    Zack Bailey has experience at right tackle, left guard, center, and right guard. He could rise up boards with a huge senior season in 2018.




  19. Chuma Edoga, OT, USC Projected Round 5th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-3 303 lb Chuma Edoga played right tackle at USC. Edoga also showed the versatility to play left tackle in the 2019 Senior Bowl. That's one reason why Edoga could be a potential starter.


    Chuma Edoga SWOT Report

    Strengths: Chuma Edoga is an effective pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. The pass blocking and run blocking strength that Edoga displays checks out as he can maintain blocks for 5-7 seconds. Edoga has the pass blocking footwork and run blocking footwork too. High football IQ. Gets to the second level and can take on double teams.


    Weaknesses: Chuma Edoga gets pushed back on blocks too often. Sometimes places his hands too low. Doesn't get enough punch in on some of his blocks.


    Opportunities: I had a fifth round grade on Chuma Edoga. I will not be suprised if he goes in the third or fourth round though.


    Threats: Edoga only has one good year of tape in 2018. He struggled in 2017 as a right tackle who could buy Sam Darnold time in the pocket.


    Potential Grade: 85/99



    Before 2018

    Chuma Edoga didn't become a starter until 2017. He had to fight for the right tackle job at USC. He looked great as a run blocker for Ronald Jones. He could be a decent right tackle if his pass protection improves without Sam Darnold in 2018.




  20. Trevon Tate, OT, Memphis Projected Round 5th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-4 295 lb Trevon Tate has experience at both left tackle and right tackle. He needs to add more muscle, but he has the technique to be a future starter in the NFL.


    Trevon Tate SWOT Report

    Strengths: Trevon Tate is an effective pass blocker. He also does well with both run blocking and zone blocking. Maintains blocks for 5-7 seconds. Extremely durable. Durability is not an issue. Gets to the second level. Good, but not great run blocking strength and run blocking footwork. Did a fantastic job opening up lanes for Darrell Henderson. Has experience at left tackle and right tackle showing he is extremely versatile on tape.


    Weaknesses: Horrendous pass blocking footwork. His pass blocking stength is okay, but not good. Accidentally, powerbombed his own quarterback on one play versus Central Florida. Needs to be more aleert on plays.


    Opportunities: I have a fifth round grade on Trevon Tate. He could be a borderline starter at best.


    Threats: Trevon Tate has guard arms. He's also only 295 lbs. Tate could be a better fit at guard if things don't work out at offensive tackle.


    Potential Grade: 85/99



    Before 2018

    Trevon Tate was a right tackle for Paxton Lynch at Memphis early in his career. Then he moved to left tackle in 2017. Tate is a potential late round pick to keep an eye on in 2018.




  21. Alex Bookser, OT, Pittsburgh Projected Round 5th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-6 315 lb Alex Bookser has the versatility to play right tackle, right guard, or center on the offensive line. Alex Bookser did well as a right tackle for Pittsburgh in 2018 and was easily the best offensive lineman on the Pittsburgh Panthers after Brian O'Neill left.


    Alex Bookser SWOT Report

    Strengths: Excellent run blocker. Has the run blocking, run blocking strength, and run blocking footwork to thrive in a run blocking scheme at the next level. Elevated the play of Qadree Ollison and Darrin Hall at Pittsburgh.


    He cut blocks and pull blocks effectively as well. Great knee bend. Knows how to shuffle his feet effectively. Can maintain blocks for 5-7 seconds. Great pass blocking footwork. Has the upside to be excellent in pass protection at the right tackle position. Versatile enough to play left tackle, left guard, center, right guard, or right tackle. he also played defensive tackle in High School so he knows how to mirror the body language of an edge rusher or a defensive lineman. Also Alex Bookser is the only offensive tackle that I've seen with any experience on special teams whatsoever. He even blocked a field goal during his senior year at Mt. Lebanon High School. So Bookser can be used on special teams as well as the offensive line and you really cannot say that about any other offensive tackle in this years draft class.


    Weaknesses: He lacks the pass blocking strength to be a Pro Bowl right tackle at this time. His ability to maintain blocks in pass protection is also an issue. On some plays versus Penn State he could barely maintain a block for 1 second and on other plays he maintained blocks for up to 7 seconds. That inconsistency can be corrected, but it is a weakness at this point. Zone blocking is terrible.


    Opportunities: I am not sure where Alex Bookser goes. I have a fifth round grade on him. He'd do best if he was drafted by a team that operates a run blocking scheme.


    Threats: There are no threats with Alex Bookser. The only concern with Bookser is that he may not get picked by a team that operates a run blocking scheme. Bookser is a top 5 run blocker in this class so a team that operates a run blocking scheme will get the most out of him.


    Potential Grade: 85/99



    Before 2018

    Alex Bookser played left tackle, defensive tackle, and special teams in High School at Mt. Lebanon. He was also a track and field standout.




  22. Ethan Greenidge, OT, Villanova Projected Round 5th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 335 lb Ethan Greenidge is is a four year starter at left tackle. Greenidge helped Villanova defeat Temple at Lincoln Financial Field. He also had a really dominant week at the 2019 East West Shrine Game.


    Ethan Greenidge SWOT Report

    Strengths: Ethan Greenidge has the pass blocking, run blocking, and zone blocking at left tackle. His pass blocking strength and run blocking strength is there. He had plays against Temple where he was buying his quarterback ten seconds in the pocket like Orlando Brown last year and he also had plays where he was pushing edge rushers on Temple 20 yards past the line of scrimmage in Villanova's 19-17 win over Temple. Has the run blocking footwork to succeed. Massive frame and biggest wingspan of any FCS offensive tackle in this years draft. Led the FCS with 126 pancake blocks in 2018. Dominated the 2019 East West Shrine Game. A four year starter at left tackle.


    Weaknesses: His pass blocking footwork is good, but it also needs to be refined as it is not consistent. Has trouble getting his hands on defenders. When he gets his hands on defenders he's money. Sometimes takes the wrong angle when blocking. Displays a tendency to miss assignments. Football IQ needs to improve.


    Opportunities: Ethan Greenidge is a fifth round prospect on my board. I feel like he's the last offensive tackle in this draft that could be a starting left tackle.


    Threats: He's a left tackle only. He's never played any position on the offensive line outside of left tackle.


    Potential Grade: 85/99



    Before 2018

    Ethan Greenidge's hometown is Flanders, New York. He was a four year starter at left tackle. That's one reason why I like his tape.




  23. Wyatt Miller, OT, Central Florida Projected Round 6th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-4 306 lb Wyatt Miller has great size. Outside of his pass protection and his versatility, he really does not bring much to the table. Wyatt Miller could be one of the better swing tackles that you could obtain in the late rounds.


    Wyatt Miller SWOT Report

    Strengths: Extremely durable with excellent size. His pass blocking, pass blocking strength, and pass blocking footwork checks out. Also an excellent zone blocker. Versatile enough to play left tackle or right tackle.


    Weaknesses: Struggles with run blocking, run blocking strength, and run blocking footwork. Needs to improve his cut blocks and pull blocks. Sometimes he misses assignments in pass protection.


    Opportunities: I have a sixth round grade on Wyatt Miller. I like him as a swing tackle that you can develop for the future.


    Threats: Wyatt Miller has no threats. He's a safe prospect with a very limited floor.


    Potential Grade: 84/99



    Before 2018

    Wyatt Miller was a three sport athlete at Coffee High School in Georgia. He played left tackle on the football team, first base on the baseball team where he batted .300, played power forward on the basketball team, was in Student Council, and still graduated in the top 5 percent of his graduation class. Wyatt Miller got recruited to Central Florida after their big Fiesta Bowl win back in 2014 when Blake Bortles was draft eligible.


    Wyatt Miller began his career as a right tackle. In 2017, he moved to the left tackle position. Miller did well there in 2017 helping Central Florida to a perfect season while protecting McKenzie Milton's blindside.




  24. Tytus Howard, OT, Alabama State Projected Round 6th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-5 322 lb Tytus Howard was a right tackle at Alabama State. It's worth noting he had the biggest hands in the 2019 Senior Bowl.


    Tytus Howard SWOT Report

    Strengths: Tytus Howard has the run blocking, run blocking strength, and run blocking footwork. He also had the biggest hands of any offensive tackle at the 2019 Senior Bowl. Howard lined up at left tackle and right tackle in Mobile despite being a right tackle at Alabama State.


    Weaknesses: Tytus Howard is probably the worst pass blocker I've seen so far. Thyat's one reason why I have a sixth round grade on him.


    Opportunities: I had a sixth round grade on Tytus Howard. He's gonna have to have a strong 2019 NFL Combine in order to change that.


    Threats: Tytus Howard has no threats. He's a nice swing tackle, but that's his ceiling.


    Potential Grade: 83/99



    Before 2018

    Tytus Howard was mainly a right tackle at Alabama State. He's on the radar as a late round prospect.




  25. Paul Adams, OT, Missouri Projected Round 6th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-6 315 lb Paul Adams was a right tackle at Missouri. He also enters his second season as a team captain on Missouri.


    Paul Adams SWOT Report

    Strengths: Paul Adams has the run blocking, run blocking strength, and run blocking footwork for a right tackle. The rest of his game needs work. He did well versus Carl Granderson, but struggled versus Alabama. Outside of the Alabama tape, his pass protection was beastly versus everyone else.


    Weaknesses: Pass blocking, pass blocking footwork, pass blocking strength, and zone blocking are his weaknesses. He struggled versus Alabama on tape like many of the offensive tackles in this class.


    Opportunities: I had a sixth round grade on Paul Adams. He could get pushed up earlier.


    Threats: Paul Adams has no threats. He was the best right tackle at the 2019 East West Shrine Game despite not getting an invite to the 2019 Senior Bowl.


    Potential Grade: 82/99



    Before 2018

    Paul Adams has been a right tackle his entire career. He played right tackle in High School before assuming the same position at Missouri. He's a three year starter at right tackle and got voted team captain of Missouri in 2017.




  26. Trey Pipkins, OT, Sioux Falls Projected Round 7th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-7 307 lb Trey Pipkins is a four year starter at left tackle in the Division 2 College known as Sioux Falls. He's known for his run blocking more then his pass blocking.


    Trey Pipkins SWOT Report

    Strengths: Trey Pipkins was the left tackle for a Sioux Falls team that led the FCS in rushing yards. His run blocking, run blocking strength,and run blocking footwork is off the charts. He can maintain blocks for 5-7 seconds. Pass blocking, pass blocking strength, and pass blocking footwork is also there. Pancaked FCS players at will. One of my staff members likes Pipkins so much they got a second round grade on him. Led Division 2 with 115 pancake blocks.


    Weaknesses: Trey Pipkins is not a good zone blocker. He also got a Shrine Game invite, but not a Senior bowl invite. That tells me he's more likely to be a backup then a potential starter.


    Opportunities: Trey Pipkins is a pure left tackle. I have a seventh round grade on him. By that point he may be a steal in terms of value.


    Threats: Trey Pipkins has no threats. You can argue he's a safer prospect then Ethan Greenidge out of Villanova.


    Potential Grade: 81/99



    Before 2018

    Trey Pipkins has 38 consecutive starts at left tackle if you count what he did in 2018. Not bad for a Division 2 left tackle.




  27. Patrick Mekari, OT, California Projected Round 7th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-4 310 lb Patrick Mekari is one of the better pass blockers in this draft. His run blocking is questionable though.


    Patrick Mekari SWOT Report

    Strengths: Extremely durable. Has ideal size. Pancakes defenders at times. Patrick Mekari has the pass blocking, pass blocking strength, and pass blocking footwork. He's versatile enough to play left tackle, left guard, right guard, and right tackle. Quality zone blocker.


    Weaknesses: Terrible run blocker, run blocking strength, and run blocking footwork. Patrick Mekari will fail if he goes to a run blocking team.


    Opportunities: I have a seventh round grade on Patrick Mekari. His versatility to play offensive tackle and guard intrigues me.


    Threats: There are no threats with Patrick Mekari. At the same time you are looking at a backup offensive lineman until he fixes his run blocking.


    Potential Grade: 80/99



    Before 2018

    Patrick Mekari is a three year starter. He lined up at left tackle, left guard, right guard, and right tackle.




  28. Jackson Barton, OT, Utah Projected Round 7th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-7 310 lb left tackle has the versatility to play offensive tackle on either side.


    Jackson Barton SWOT Report

    Strengths: Jackson Barton is versatile enough to play left tackle or right tackle. He's a good zone blocker.


    Weaknesses: Pass blocking, pass blocking strength, pass blocking footwork, run blocking, and run blocking footwork are all glaring weaknesses in Jackson Barton's game. Jackson Barton gets abused by speed rushers like Sutton Smith.


    Opportunities: I have a seventh round grade on Jackson Barton. Barton could be a decent swing tackle on the right team.


    Threats: Jackson Barton has no threats. Barton is a nice offensive tackle.


    Potential Grade: 77/99



    Before 2018

    Jackson Barton began his career as a bookend left tackle to Garrett Bolles. Once Bolles left, Barton became Utah's blindside in 2018.




  29. Ryan Bates, OT, Penn State Projected Round 7th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-4 302 lb Ryan Bates has the versatility to play left tackle, left guard, right guard, or right tackle. Ryan Bates is extremely versatile and he's also an underrated run blocker in this class.


    Ryan Bates SWOT Report

    Strengths: Ryan Bates is an effective pass blocker. His run blocking and zone blocking is superb as well. The pass blocking and run blocking strength that Malone displays checks out as he can maintain blocks for 5-7 seconds. His pass blocking footwork and run blocking footwork was good throughout his career at Penn State. High football IQ. Gets to the second level and can take on double teams. Bates played a vital role in aiding Trace McSorely at quarterback while also aiding running back Saquon Barkley.


    Weaknesses: Ryan Bates seems pretty complete on tape. I feel like his ceiling is limited though.


    Opportunities: I have a seventh round grade on Ryan Bates. He's flexibile, but I see a career backup.


    Threats: There are no threats with Ryan Bates. Safe prospect, but a career backup.


    Potential Grade: 77/99



    Before 2018

    Ryan Bates started a majority of his games at left tackle when Saquon Barkley was on the roster. Him and Connor McGovern made things easy for Saquon Barkley when he was at Penn State.




  30. Ului Lapuaho, OT, BYU Projected Round 7th Round

    2018 Season Recap The 6-7 330 lb Ului Lapuaho is an offensive tackle with the versatility to play left tackle or right tackle. BYU's best offensive lineman finally stayed healthy in 2018.


    Ului Lapuaho SWOT Report

    Strengths: Ului Lapuaho has more passion and intensity in terms of playing with a chip on his shoulder then any offensive tackle in this class. That being said, that is his only strength. He's also versatile enough to play left tackle or right tackle in a swing tackle role. Has ideal size for an offensive tackle.


    Weaknesses: His film is awful. However, he had the audacity to punch an edge rusher in the nads. I love how he has 11 siblings and wants to represent his family.


    Opportunities: I have a seventh round grade on him just based on his personality alone. His favorite book is the Book of Mormon. Odds are he goes undrafted.


    Threats: He tore both of his ACL's in 2016 and 2017. He was fully healthy in 2018 though and started every game at left tackle for BYU in 2018. His comeback story is inspirational to a point.


    Potential Grade: 71/99



    Before 2018

    Ului Lapuaho punched a Boise State player in the nads during his freshman season. He missed the 2016 and 2017 season on injured reserve. He has to show he can stay healthy in 2018 just to have a fighting chance of hearing his name called on a card.
