2016 NFL Draft Position Rankings:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C |

  1. Jason Smith, Baylor
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.10.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.14.
    Benchx225: 33. Arm: 33 3/4.
    Projected Round (2009): Top 6 Pick.

    2/22/09: One of the reasons I had Michael Crabtree going to the Rams was because I believed there was no left tackle worthy of No. 1 overall (or No. 2) consideration. Well, that changed after the 2009 NFL Combine. Jason Smith established himself as the top tackle in this class, and has even emerged as a candidate for the Lions, though I still believe the pick will be Matt Stafford.

    2/21/09: Aside from Alex Boone, Jason Smith put up more reps at the 2009 NFL Combine than any other tackle (33). His stock continues to rise.

    2/19/09: Jason Smith weighed in at 6-5, 309. It's difficult to imagine him falling past Jacksonville.

    1/6/09: Considering the value of offensive tackles and Jason Smith's hot draft stock, it'll be a shock if he eludes the top 15. An All-America third-teamer.

    11/1/08: The ultra-athletic Jason Smith has been a consistent force on Baylor's front. There's a possibility he goes toward the first round.

    5/24/08: Earned an All-Big XII honorable mention last year. A former tight end, so you know the athletic ability is there.

  2. Eugene Monroe, Virginia
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.19.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.16.
    Benchx225: 23. Arm: 33 7/8.
    Projected Round (2009): Top 6 Pick.

    1/6/09: It'll take a small mircale to move Eugene Monroe, an All-America second-teamer, out of the top 10.

    11/1/08: Eugene Monroe has been instrumental in Virginia's unexpected success this season. He'll be the second pure left tackle off the board, in all likelihood.

    5/24/08: Eugene Monroe played a lot better than he did in 2006. He didn't allow any sacks last season, earning himself an honorable mention on the All-ACC team.

    2007: Eugene Monroe had big shoes to fill, as he stepped in for D'Brickashaw Ferguson last year. He didn't fare too well, although reports are he looked solid in the spring.

  3. Andre Smith, Alabama
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 325.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.26.
    Combine 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: . Arm: 35 3/8.
    Projected Round (2009): Top 6-16 Pick.

    3/11/09: Andre Smith "trimmed down" to 325, but observers seemed to think that he looked sluggish at his Pro Day. Smith will need a miracle to make it into the top 10, and his first-round status is in serious doubt. 2/21/09: Andre Smith will not work out at the Combine, citing that he's out of shape. Out of shape? Why is Smith out of shape? Isn't it his job to stay in shape?

    2/19/09: Andre Smith weighed in at 332 pounds at the Combine. He'll have to play right tackle or guard in the NFL, so his draft range looks to be No. 6 (Bengals need tackle help) to No. 13 (the Redskins will not pass on an elite right tackle.

    1/4/08: Andre Smith was suspended for the game against national champion Utah, but only because he talked to an agent. A few days later, Smith declared. This will not affect his draft stock.

    11/1/08: Less athletic than Michael Oher and Eugene Monroe, but still very talented.

    5/24/08: A unanimous All-SEC first-teamer, Andre Smith has started every game in his career at Alabama.

    2007: Andre Smith is an extremely hard-worker; at the request of new head coach Nick Saban, Smith lost about 30 pounds this offseason. Even despite the fact that Smith was overweight last year, he still was the starting left tackle as a true freshman in the SEC. If Smith keeps losing weight and getting quicker, he'll shoot up this list.

  4. Michael Oher, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.19.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.32.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.16.
    Benchx225: 23. Arm: 33 1/2.
    Projected Round (2009): Top 6-16 Pick.

    3/29/09: Michael Oher promised us a great 40 time, and he finally came through at his Pro Day, running a 5.16. It's hard to imagine him falling into the bottom half of Round 1.

    2/22/09: Michael Oher has slipped a bit, thanks to concerns about his intelligence and consistency in pass protection. I can't see the Chargers passing on him if he falls to No. 16.

  5. William Beatty, Connecticut
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 307.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.02.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.12.
    Benchx225: 27. Arm: 34 3/4.
    Projected Round (2009): Top 20 Pick.

    2/19/09: William Beatty put on 16 pounds since the end of the season. He seems to have solidified his first-round status... for now.

    1/6/09: William Beatty's stock has shot through the roof along with running back Donald Brown's. The anchor of Connecticut's offensive front, Beatty was an All-Big East first-teamer.

  6. Eben Britton, Arizona
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.05.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.15.
    Benchx225: 24. Arm: 32 3/4.
    Projected Round (2009): Top 22 Pick.

    2/22/09: Had the second-shortest arms at the 2009 NFL Combine.

    1/6/09: Eben Britton, who recently declared for the 2009 NFL Draft, has seen his stock soar ever since Arizona moved him over to left tackle.

    7/27/08: An athletic tackle who earned a spot on the All-Pac-10 second team as a sophomore.

  7. Phil Loadholt, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-8. Weight: 332.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.36.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.54.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.45.
    Benchx225: 26. Arm: 36.5.
    Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

    1/6/09: A member of the All-Big XII First Team and AP All-America Third Team, Phil Loadholt is a second-round prospect, but could be appealing to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh at the bottom of Round 1.

    11/1/08: Phil Loadholt was beaten easily by Brian Orakpo a few weeks ago. Orakpo has abused everyone this year, but Loadholt's lacking athleticism was glaring on that play. Still, he should make for an outstanding right tackle on the next level.

    7/22/08: Phil Loadholt was arrested for suspicion of DUI in June.

    5/24/08: A mammoth of an offensive tackle and a tremendous run-blocker. I have a feeling Phil Loadholt is going to be blocking for tons of 1,000-yard backs throughout his NFL career as a right tackle.

    2007: I'm going out on a limb by saying this guy likes cheeseburgers.

  8. Jamon Meredith, South Carolina
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 304.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.04.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.03.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: 31. Arm: 34 1/2.
    Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

    11/1/08: Jason Meredith was having a solid season before getting dinged up with an ankle injury in a home loss to LSU.

    5/24/08: An athletic lineman who started every game as a junior and four contests as a sophomore in the tough SEC.

  9. Gerald Cadogan, Penn State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.12.
    Benchx225: 26. Arm: 35.
    Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

    2/22/09: Gerald Cadogan may have moved himself into mid-to-late round consideration; he ran a 5.12, benched 26 reps and his arms measured 35 inches - the third-longest of all the offensive tackles at the 2009 NFL Combine.

    11/1/08: Gerald Cadogan struggled at Ohio State, but is otherwise having a solid season.

  10. Troy Kropog, Tulane
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.02.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.32.
    Benchx225: 21. Arm: 33 1/2.
    Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

    1/6/09: A three-year starter and a member of the All-Conference USA First Team, Troy Kropog is finally getting the recognition he deserves after opening up massive running lanes for two of the nation's leading rushers.

    5/24/08: A very athletic zone-blocking lineman who had a long streak of consecutive snaps going into the 2007 season.

  11. Fenuki Tupou, Oregon
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 314.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.41.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.20.
    Benchx225: 24. Arm: 34.
    Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

    1/6/09: Like Andre Smith, Fenuki Tupou had problems with having contact with an agent. Just another example of how out of control the NCAA is.

    5/24/08: A monstrous right tackle who will also be able to play some guard at the next level. Fenuki Tupou started 12 games in 2007 after red-shirting the 2006 season.



  12. Xavier Fulton, Illinois
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 302.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.95.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.04.
    Benchx225: 27. Arm: 33 1/2.
    Projected Round (2009): 3-4.

    1/6/09: Xavier Fulton had shoulder problems in 2008. Bad timing for this All-Big Ten Second Team member.

    5/24/08: For a guy coming off a season-ending knee injury, Xavier Fulton played pretty well in 2007. A former defensive lineman, Fulton's athleticism will make him a good fit in a zone-blocking scheme.

  13. T.J. Lang, Eastern Michigan
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.08.
    Projected Round (2009): 3-4.

    3/18/09: Started 36 consecutive games at Eastern Michigan. Can play almost every position up front, including center.

  14. Sebastian Vollmer, Houston
    Height: 6-8. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.29.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.13.
    Benchx225: 32.
    Projected Round (2009): 4-5.



  15. Cornelius Lewis, Tennessee State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 336.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.21.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: 31. Arm: 33 1/2.
    Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

    1/6/09: A transfer from Florida State, Cornelius Lewis qualified for the All-OVC First Team.

  16. Jason Watkins, Florida
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 318.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.21.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.47.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: 19. Arm: 34 3/8.
    Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

    1/6/09: Thanks to rough competition, Jason Watkins was just an All-SEC honorable mention.

    11/1/08: Jason Watkins may be the best lineman Florida has, but the offensive front has really struggled this year.

    5/24/08: Florida's starting left tackle for every game in 2007. Another former tight end on this list.



  17. Joel Bell, Furman
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.13.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.15.
    Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
    Benchx225: 29. Arm: 34.
    Projected Round (2009): 5.

    1/6/09: An All-SoCon first-teamer, Joel Bell started 36 games at left tackle for Furman.

    5/24/08: Despite missing a start, Joel Bell was a member of the All-SoCon first team.

  18. Augustus Parrish, Kent State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 302.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.13.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.34.
    Benchx225: 21. Arm: 35.
    Projected Round (2009): 5.

    11/1/08: One of the more athletic linemen in the country, Augustus Parrish has vastly improved every year.

    5/24/08: A quick offensive tackle and an effective run-blocker, Augustus Parrish is a two-year starter and a member of the All-MAC second team.

  19. Andrew Gardner, Georgia Tech
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 304.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.18.
    Combine 40 Time: DNP.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.96.
    Benchx225: DNP. Arm: 34 1/2.
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

    1/6/09: Despite suffering a torn labrum in early November, Andrew Gardner was voted to the All-ACC First Team.

    5/24/08: Andrew Gardner is a very solid run-blocker who sparked Tashard Choice the past few years. He has 39 collegiate starts entering 2008.

    2007: Andrew Gardner has started every game for the Yellow Jackets the past two years. A bit light for a tackle, but his skills make up for that.

  20. Garrett Reynolds, North Carolina
    Height: 6-8. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.23.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.39.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.32.
    Benchx225: 19. Arm: 34 1/2.
    Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

    1/6/09: Qualified for the All-ACC Second Team. He hasn't missed a start in 26 games.

    5/24/08: Garrett Reynolds was a first-year starter in 2007 (he started half the year in 2006). A right tackle.

  21. Lydon Murtha, Nebraska
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 306.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.31.
    Combine 40 Time: 4.89.
    Benchx225: 25. Arm: 33 7/8.
    Projected Round (2009): 6-7.

    2/22/09: Worth noting that Lydon Murtha ran the only sub-5.0 40 at the 2009 NFL Combine.

  22. Robert Brewster, Ball State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 325.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.05.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.31.

    1/6/09: Another member of the All-MAC First Team, Robert Brewster has started 47 consecutive games.

    5/24/08: Robert Brewster started 13 games and anchored an offensive line that helped Nate Davis throw for 3,667 yards and 30 touchdowns.

  23. Alex Boone, Ohio State
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 328.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.23.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.17.
    Benchx225: 33. Arm: 34 3/8.
    Projected Round (2009): 6-FA.

    1/6/09: Despite a down year, Alex Boone was voted to the All-Big Ten First Team. I'd say that's more of an indictment on the conference than anything.

    11/1/08: Not a very good season for Alex Boone, though problems on the rest of Ohio State's front can attribute to that.

    5/24/08: Versatile enough to play both tackle positions. I was happy to see Alex Boone, a member of the All-Big Ten second team, come back for his senior campaign.

    2007: Stricken with knee injuries last year. Another junior who should wait until 2009.

  24. Ryan Stanchek, West Virginia
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 301.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    1/6/09: An All-Big East first-teamer, Ryan Stanchek finished his West Virginia career with 48 consecutive starts.

    11/1/08: Ryan Stanchek has started 41 consecutive games - a very impressive feat.

    5/24/08: A two-year starter who has all the fundamentals to be successful in the NFL.

  25. Phil Trautwein, Florida
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 308.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.36.
    Benchx225: 23.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    1/6/09: A tough run-blocker who qualified for the All-SEC First Team.

  26. Andrew Hartline, Central Michigan
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 294.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.08.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    1/6/09: Owner of the nation's longest active starts streak, Andrew Hartline has been in Central Michigan's lineup 51 games in a row. He's an All-MAC first-teamer.

    11/1/08: The dependable Andrew Hartline has started 47 straight games.

    5/24/08: Andrew Hartline had big shoes to fill with Joe Staley heading to the NFL. It's safe to say that he performed well, earning a spot on the All-MAC second team. Hartline, an athletic lineman, anchored a front that yielded just 16 sacks.

    2007: Andrew Hartline, who was in the starting lineup every week in 2006, will be a perfect second- or third-round pick for any team using zone blocking.

  27. Lance Louis, San Diego State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 303.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.05.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.76.
    Benchx225: 30. Arm: .
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    3/29/09: I know 40 times mean nothing for offensive linemen, but a 4.76 for a 300-pound guy is really impressive.



  28. Scott Burley, Maryland
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 335.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.37.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.45.
    Benchx225: 19.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    1/6/09: Able to play both guard and right tackle, Scott Burley was an All-ACC honorable mention.

    5/24/08: Despite being hampered by ankle injuries throughout the season, people thought enough of Scott Burley to vote him on the All-ACC second team. Burley should be able to play right tackle and guard at the next level.

  29. Ryan Delrosal, Dixie State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 313.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.94.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    5/24/08: I'm not going to bash the name of Ryan Delrosal's school. Mentioning 40s for linemen is useless, but a 4.94 at 313 pounds is just really impressive.

  30. Dace Richardson, Iowa
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 307.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.14.
    Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

    11/1/08: The knee injury won't go away. Out for 2008.

    5/24/08: Dace Richardson is a very talented offensive tackle coming from a program with a history of sending talented linemen to the NFL. Unfortunately, Richardson suffered a nasty knee injury in October, so some GMs may have reservations about drafting him.

    2007: Missed some playing time in 2006 because of an ankle injury. Dace Richardson will have to be the man now that Marshal Yanda is in the NFL.

  31. Ryan McKee, Southern Miss
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 296.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.94.
    Combine 40 Time: DNP.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.03.
    Benchx225: DNP. Arm: 33 1/2.
    Projected Round (2009): FA.

    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Combine 40 Time: 5.57.

    Benchx225: 16. Arm: 34.
    Projected Round (2009): FA.



  36. Jon Brost, Northern Illinois
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 304.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2009): FA.

    1/6/09: Spent another year on the All-MAC Third Team. Jon Brost was a member of a unit that didn't allow a sack in half of its games.

    5/24/08: A member of the All-MAC Third Team, Jon Brost played really well in 2007, surrendering his first sack in Week 7.

    2007: Jon Brost needs to somehow get quicker if he wants to avoid the sixth or seventh round of the NFL Draft.

  37. Sean Sester, Purdue
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 323.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Projected Round (2009): FA.

    11/1/08: In and out of the lineup with injuries.

    5/24/08: Curtis Painter was seldom sacked last year considering how many times he had to throw, and Sean Sester was a major reason for that.

    2007: An underrated tackle who hasn't missed a start while playing at Purdue.

  38. Chris Kemme, Akron
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 306.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.18.

    5/24/08: Chris Kemme, a member of the All-MAC second team, played right tackle for a front that helped their runners gain 4.5 yards per carry. Kemme was also a full-time starter in 2006.

  39. Garry Williams, Kentucky
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 300.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.26.
    Projected Round (2009): FA.

    1/6/09: Once again qualified for the All-SEC Second Team.

    5/24/08: A two-year starter and a member of the All-SEC Second Team, Garry Williams was part of a front that helped the Wildcats average more than 33 points per game in 2007.

  40. Rylan Reed, Texas Tech -
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 310. Projected 40 Time: 5.25. Projected Round (2009): FA.
