OT Greg Robinson, Auburn 6-5.0 332 4.92 Lacks some experience in pass pro but has everything else to excel at OLT for the next decade.

OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M 6-5.4 308 5.10 Excellent physical tools and mentality. NFL ready from Day One. Father, Bruce, is a HOF OL.

OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan 6-7.1 309 4.87 Late riser could join top 2 OTs as top-10 pick. Started 48 games at OLT. Strength could be improved.

OG Xavier Su'a-Filo, UCLA 6-4.1 307 5.04 Ideal size and movement skills for OG. Has started at OLT but much better fit at OG in NFL.

OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama 6-6.6 322 5.59 Ideal size and dominates at times but comes with serious concerns about past knee injuries.

OT Joel Bitonio, Nevada 6-4.2 302 4.97 Exceptional mentality, work ethic, tenacity and leadership outweigh marginal size.

C Weston Richburg, Colo. St. 6-3.3 298 5.10 Started every game (49) for 4 years. Football smart with versatility (started games at OG and OT).

C Marcus Martin, USC 6-3.3 320 5.29 Great size for C and has versatility (started 20 games at OG). Physically and mentally tough.
