1. Russell Okung, Oklahoma State.
The Cowboys led the Big 12 in rushing in each of Okung’s four seasons as a starter, and he possesses ideal athleticism, arm length, and strength to be a mainstay on the blind side.
Draft Prediction: Redskins, No. 4 overall.
2. Bryan Bulaga, Iowa.
The Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year has quick feet, resembles Joe Thomas in terms of build (6’6/315) and athleticism, and is NFL-ready coming from Kirk Ferentz’s pro-style offense.
Draft Prediction: Chiefs, No. 5 overall.
3. Anthony Davis, Rutgers.
Davis has battled weight problems throughout his career and hasn’t had a stellar offseason, but the 20-year-old offers as much upside as any offensive tackle in the draft.
Draft Prediction: Seahawks, No. 6 overall.
4. Trent Williams, Oklahoma.
Williams started 40 games as a Sooner and projects as a Pro Bowl-caliber right tackle if he doesn’t pan out as a long-term solution on the left side.
Draft Prediction: Raiders, No. 8 overall.
5. Mike Iupati, Idaho.
Iupati struggled when asked to play tackle at the Senior Bowl, but plays with the necessary mean streak and size (6’5/325) to be a difference-making left guard.
Draft Prediction: Giants, No. 15 overall.
6. Charles Brown, USC.
A converted tight end, Brown started only two years for Pete Carroll but would be the perfect fit at left tackle in a zone-blocking scheme thanks to elite athleticism.
Draft Prediction: Packers, No. 23 overall.
7. Vladimir Ducasse, UMass.
The Haiti native didn’t learn football until he moved to the U.S. in 2002, but Ducasse has drawn comparisons to Jeff Otah at 6-foot-5, 326 pounds with long arms and a powerful base.
Draft Prediction: Rams, No. 33 overall.
8. Maurkice Pouncey, Florida.
The 2009 Rimington Award winner made starts at both guard and center during his UF career, and projects as a long-term starter at either position regardless of scheme.
Draft Prediction: Eagles, No. 55 overall.
9. Bruce Campbell, Maryland.
Campbell started only 17 games in college and never made All-ACC, but may be the most physically impressive offensive lineman in this year’s draft.
Draft Prediction: 49ers, No. 49 overall.
10. Rodger Saffold, Indiana.
Opinions differ on whether Saffold will land at guard or tackle, but he manned the blind side for 41 career starts as a Hoosier and has enjoyed a big offseason.
Draft Prediction: Cardinals, No. 58 overall.
11. Tony Washington, Abilene Christian.
Washington is the prototype left tackle at 6-foot-6 and 311 pounds with 35.5-inch arms, but being a registered sex offender will hurt him on draft weekend.
Draft Prediction: Steelers, No. 116 overall.
12. Jon Asamoah, Illinois.
A nasty interior run blocker, Asamoah made 37 straight starts to close out his Fighting Illini career before unfortunately fracturing his shoulder blade in pre-draft workouts.
Draft Prediction: Broncos, No. 80 overall.
13. Jason Fox, Miami.
A 48-game starter for the Hurricanes, mostly at left tackle, Fox allowed just one sack as a senior and has impressive measurables, but has been injury prone of late.
Draft Prediction: Bills, No. 72 overall.
14. Zane Beadles, Utah.
Beadles’ short arms will likely force a position switch, but the longtime Utes left tackle is heady (3.54 GPA), athletic, and made 50 career starts.
Draft Prediction: Colts, No. 94 overall.
15. J.D. Walton, Baylor.
In a draft class that’s fairly thin on true interior offensive linemen, Walton stands out as a powerful technician who started every game of his college career.
Draft Prediction: Vikings, No. 93 overall.
