Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel, a junior and potential first overall pick, has decided to enter the 2013 NFL draft, according to multiple reports.
The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Joeckel won the Outland Trophy, the award that goes to the best lineman in college football, in 2012.
Joeckel has been the Aggies’ starter at left tackle since he was a true freshman in 2010, and he was widely expected to turn pro this year. He’s widely regarded as the best offensive tackle in this year’s draft, and some view him as the best player at any position. A lot can change between now and April, but at the moment he’s in the conversation to be the first overall pick.
