Other Positions:
QB|RB|FB|WR|TE|OT|OG|C|DE|DT|OLB|ILB|CB|S|K|P

  1. Branden Albert, Virginia
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.19.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.17.
    Benchx225: .
    Projected Round: 1.

    Branden Albert was clearly the elite guard at the combine. He could go toward the end of the first round.

  2. Chilo Rachal, USC
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 322.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.10.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.23.
    Benchx225: 28.
    Projected Round: 2.

    Probably second fiddle to Branden Albert in this guard class.

  3. Roy Schuening, Oregon State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 306.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.34.
    Arm: 32 7/8. Benchx225: 26.
    Projected Round: 2-3.

    As Mike Mayock pointed out about a dozen times, Roy Schuening isn't even close to being the most athletic guy in the world, but he'll be able to hold his own on Sundays.

  4. Drew Radovich, USC
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 301.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.09.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.21.
    Arm: 33 1/2. Benchx225: 33.
    Projected Round: 3.

    Started every game for USC at left guard.

  5. Mike McGlynn, Pittsburgh
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.36.
    Arm: 32 7/8. Benchx225: 29.
    Projected Round: 3-4.

    Extremely durable. Can play both offensive tackle and guard positions.

  6. Eric Young, Tennessee
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 310.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.08.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.03.
    Benchx225: .
    Projected Round: 3-4.

    Plays tackle at Tennessee, but will likely move to guard for the NFL. Coming off shoulder surgery.

  7. Donald Thomas, Connecticut
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 303.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.88.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.00.
    Benchx225: 28.
    Projected Round: 4-5.

    A sub-4.9 in the 40 will catch some looks from scouts for teams using the zone-blocking scheme. Donald Thomas is a workout warrior and could put up big Combine numbers.

  8. Chad Rinehart, Northern Iowa
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 317.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.08.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.41.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.26.
    Arm: 33 1/8. Benchx225: 26.
    Projected Round: 4-5.

    The best offensive lineman you haven't heard of in this draft class. Chad Rinehart, an incredible run-blocker, can play tackle and guard. Runs a nice 40.

  9. Robert Felton, Arkansas
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.38.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.46.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.28.
    Arm: 34. Benchx225: 22.
    Projected Round: 5.

    Wasn't impressive on the bench press, but then again his long arms make up for it.

    I said that if Darren McFadden and Felix Jones both had another great year, Robert Felton's stock would rise again. Well...

  10. Adam Kraus, Michigan
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 296.
    40 Time: 5.15.
    Projected Round: 5-6.

    Along with Jake Long, next in the line of great Michigan linemen. Can play guard or center in a zone-blocking system.



  11. Kirk Elder, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 305.
    40 Time: 5.15.
    Projected Round: 6.

    A player perfect for any zone-blocking scheme. One of the top guards available who fits that system.

  12. Mike Fladell, Rutgers
    Height: 6-8. Weight: 325.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.35.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.46.
    Benchx225: 23.
    Projected Round: 6.

    Blocking for Ray Rice and Brian Leonard would look good on any resume. Started every game for Rutgers in 2006.

  13. Andrew Crummey, Maryland
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 299.
    40 Time: 5.28.
    Benchx225: 28.
    Projected Round: 6.

    Andrew Crummey is coming off a broken leg.

  14. Shannon Tevaga, UCLA
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.19.
    Benchx225: 28.
    Projected Round: 6.

    Shannon Tevaga is one of the most dependable linemen in this draft; he has started 31 consecutive games.

  15. Jordan Grimes, Purdue
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 325.
    40 Time: 5.38.
    Projected Round: 6.

    An ankle injury Jordan Grimes suffered toward the end of the season will hurt his draft stock.

  16. Will Arnold, LSU
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 322.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.36.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.63.
    Benchx225: 34.
    Projected Round: 6.

    Will Arnold didn't start against Mississippi State, which isn't a surprise, given that he's been practicing with the second team.

    Arnold is apparently having problems recovering from his injuries. In fact, he's running with the second team in practice.

    Rarely surrenders sacks or yardage for penalties. The top lineman on LSU's prolific front. We'll have to see how well he comes off his ankle and knee injuries.



  17. Chris McDuffie, Clemson
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 330.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.21.
    Combine 40 Time: Did not run.
    Benchx225: 29.
    Projected Round: 6-7.

    Chris McDuffie didn't run at the combine. A versatile lineman who can play guard and center.

  18. Brandon Rodd, Arizona State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 303.
    40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round: 6-7.

    Another candidate for a team utilizing zone blocking. Brandon Rodd can play tackle and guard.

  19. Andrew Bain, Miami
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 325.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.25.
    Benchx225: 32.
    Projected Round: 6-7.

    A massive guard who can help any team's running game. Started every game in 2006.

  20. Brandyn Dombrowski, San Diego State
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 335.
    40 Time: 5.28.
    Projected Round: 7.

    Played both sides of the line, starting every game for San Diego State in 2006.

  21. John Booker, San Jose State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 313.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.14.

    Height: 6-4. Weight: 310.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.23.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.21.
    Projected Round: 7.

    Didn't play in 2007, but Mike Gibson is a decent lineman who could get drafted. He can play right tackle as well.

  23. Leon Hart, Auburn
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 301.
    40 Time: 5.00.
    Projected Round: 7.

    Needs to improve fundamentally, but the versatility is there; Hart can play almost any position on the offensive front, including center.

  24. Kerry Brown, Appalachian State
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 310.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.16.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.16.
    Benchx225: 32.
    Projected Round: 7.

    Kerry Brown has played against low competition, but he was named to the All-Southern first team in 2006 for his services at left guard.



  25. Shawn Murphy, Utah State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 305.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.99.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.32.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.14.

    Tad Miller, once a fifth- or sixth-round prospect, suffered a potentially career-ending knee injury against Hawaii. He may get a look in camp. One of the linemen who helped Ian Johnson rumble for 1,700 rushing yards.

  31. Eric Tunney, Central Michigan
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 296.
