  1. Laremy Tunsil*, OT, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 310. Arm: 34.5.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Projected Round (2016): Top-10 Pick.

    4/26/16: Sources say that Tunsil graded out as a top-five pick and has a great skill set for the NFL, plus upside to develop. In speaking to contacts with the Titans, Tunsil was in the running to be the No. 1-overall pick before they traded down with Los Angeles.

    Because of the trades at the top of the 2016 NFL Draft, Tunsil could slide in the middle of the top 10 just because of team fit. However, with his balance, feet, quickness, and athleticism, he looks like a future franchise left tackle. Tunsil had superb workouts at the combine and his pro day.

    Tunsil put his impressive skill set on display during the 2015 season. He has natural knee bend with amazing quickness and agility. While Tunsil has room to add more power for the NFL, he has some natural strength and plays with great leverage. Tunsil gets movement in the ground game and has the quick feet to be a franchise left tackle. The only thing he could use is a little more power to get movement on NFL defensive linemen. Tunsil is a tap dancer on the edge who is superb at neutralizing speed rushers.

    In his 2015 debut, which was quite delayed, Tunsil played well against Texas A&M and dynamic edge rusher Myles Garrett. Garrett gave him a difficult time on a few plays with pressure, but Tunsil wasn't beaten for any sacks. Auburn's Carl Lawson did better and gave Tunsil some issues.

    Tunsil was suspended for seven games to start the season because he allegedly took benefits from an agent according to statements made by his step-father. They had an altercation last summer in which Tunsil said he was defending his mother, a charge the stepfather denies. The domestic disturbance and allegations were the instigation for the NCAA's investigation of Tunsil and the suspension.

    8/15/15: Tunsil has a ton of natural talent to be a blind-side protector. He was very good in 2014 and was arguably the best left tackle in the nation on occasion. Tunsil is very athletic with natural bending. He could use some hand-placement development, but he has a skill set for the NFL with size, speed, length and athleticism. During his junior year, Tunsil has the potential to emerge as a franchise left tackle prospect for the NFL.

    Not only does Tunsil match up well with speed rushers, but he gets movement in the ground game. Tunsil was one of the top recruits in the nation coming out of high school. As a freshman, he validated the hype when he broke into the starting lineup and became an All-SEC Second-Team selection by the AP. The conference's coaches had him as an All-Freshman performer, and he was also named a Freshman All-American according to many media outlets.






  2. Ronnie Stanley*, OT, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 312. Arm: 35.63.
    40 Time: 5.20.
    Projected Round (2016): Top-20 Pick.

    4/26/16: At the combine, Stanley had a strong performance to solidify his standing as a top-20 pick. He showed good athleticism, quickness and length. Stanley has the potential to be a Pro-Bowl caliber left tackle in the NFL. In speaking with sources, they feel that Stanley will be a very good pass protector in the NFL. They do question his passion for football though.

    Stanley was good in 2015, but not completely dominant. He did a nice job in pass protection, but didn't steadily blast defenders off the line in the ground game. Stanley is a good athlete with length and quickness, but lacks power and a mean streak. He could use more strength for the NFL. Stanley had some problems with Clemson edge rusher Shaq Lawson.

    8/15/15: Stanley took over at left tackle with Zack Martin in the NFL and did a great job for the Fighting Irish. Stanley is strong and quick. He has good length to him and finishes his blocks extremely well. Stanley's speed and agility let him mirror speed rushers, yet he is strong enough to create movement in the ground game. Stanley surprisingly decided to go back to school for his senior year rather than enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

    Stanley generated a ton of late-season buzz in 2014, and he put an exclamation point on it by getting the better of the top 2015 NFL Draft-eligible defensive lineman, USC's Leonard Williams, in limited plays against each other. It was only a few reps, but impressive none the less that Stanley was able to handle one of the best defensive linemen in college football.

    Stanley started at right tackle in 2013 and was part of a line that allowed only eight sacks on the season. He has some strength and athleticism.


  3. Jack Conklin*, OT, Michigan State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 308. Arm: 35.
    40 Time: 5.00.
    Projected Round (2016): Top-25 Pick.

    4/26/16: Conklin was solid at left tackle for the Spartans, but in speaking with NFL sources, they think he would be a better fit on the right side as a pro. They say you could get away with him at left tackle, but will ultimately want someone more athletic on the blind side. Some teams like Conklin, but there are sources at other teams who are really down on Conklin and think he's very overrated.

    Conklin played well in 2015. He was generally reliable at protecting Connor Cook and opened holes in the ground game. Conklin had some problems with Maryland edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue for the second straight year. Conklin did well against Ohio State, but didn't go against Joey Bosa on many plays.

    8/15/15: Conklin is a well-balanced blocker who is effective in protecting the passer and opening holes in the ground game. He turned in an impressive 2014 season as the blind-side protector for Connor Cook. Conklin had some problems with Baylor defensive end Shawn Oakman in the bowl game though.

    Conklin could use a little more power for the NFL, but the redshirt sophomore should add that in an NFL strength and conditioning program. He has early-round ability.


  4. Taylor Decker, OT, Ohio State
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 310. Arm: 33.75.
    40 Time: 5.23.
    Projected Round (2016): 1-2.

    4/26/16: Decker played well for the Buckeyes in 2015, but is better as a run blocker than in pass protection. He had some problems with speed rushers, and that was evident in the game against Minnesota. Like Michigan State's Jack Conklin, sources feel that Decker would be a better right tackle in the NFL. He could be a strong run blocker on the right side. Teams feel that Decker is a solid player and a safe pick, but isn't special or elite.

    8/15/15: Decker enters his senior year with two seasons of starting experience. His run blocking is ahead of his pass blocking. To finish 2014, he played well, protecting Cardale Jones and opening holes for Ezekiel Elliott. Decker has to work on his feet as some times he can be caught lunging. Decker also has a tendency to stand up too high at times and needs to work on his knee bend and pad level. Depending on if the senior can show improvement in 2015, for the NFL, he could be better off playing right tackle.


  5. Germain Ifedi*, OT, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 324. Arm: 36.
    40 Time: 5.27.
    Projected Round (2016): 1-2.

    4/26/16: Ifedi played well for the Aggies in 2015. He opened holes in the ground game and was reliable in pass protection. Ifedi has physical upside with athleticism and strength. He could turn into a Pro Bowl-caliber right tackle in the NFL. Some sources have said they have Ifedi in their top-50 prospects. He is on the bubble between the first and second round.

    Ifedi has more strength and nastiness to him than some other recent Aggie offensive line prospects like Luke Joeckel, Jake Matthews and Cedric Ogbuehi. However, Ifedi isn't as quick or athletic to be a left tackle like that trio. Sources say they see him more as a guard for the NFL, and that was given further proof by Louisville's edge rushers in bowl season.

    8/15/15: The Aggies have produced three first-round offensive tackles over the past three years, and Ifedi has the physical skill set to make a run at four in a row. He didn't always play up to his skill set in 2014, but the Aggies' offensive line had to be jockeyed in the mid-season with a few players slumping after a strong start. Ifedi has athleticism to go with size.


  6. Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 301. Arm: 34.13. Hand: 9.5.
    40 Time: 4.94.
    Projected Round (2016): 1-3.

    4/26/16: Grades on Spriggs vary, and some teams in the market for offensive line help have told WalterFootball.com they have a third-round grade on Spriggs. Others have him higher. At the combine, Spriggs had a very good workout as he ran fast in the 40 while showing athleticism in the field work. Spriggs also had a quality showing on the bench press with 31 reps, a very good number for a left tackle with longer arms.

    Spriggs played well for Indiana in 2015 and held his own against Joey Bosa of Ohio State. To start out his NFL career, Spriggs could be a better fit as a right tackle, but before too long, he could prove to be a starting left tackle. He has good feet, length, and enough athleticism to block on the edge.

    At the Senior Bowl, Spriggs had a quality week and was voted the best offensive lineman in Mobile. He was effective in the ground game and showed potential to develop as a pass protector.

    8/15/15: Spriggs was Indiana's top offensive lineman in 2014, and the Hoosiers' offense had a huge season running the ball with Tevin Coleman. Spriggs was a reliable pass-protector as he only allowed two sacks as a junior. He was the starting left tackle as a sophomore and started as a freshman as well.




  7. Le'Raven Clark, OT, Texas Tech
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 316. Arm: 36.25. Hand: 10.88.
    40 Time: 5.16.
    Projected Round (2016): 2-3.

    4/26/16: At the Senior Bowl, Clark showed that he has a ton of potential, but needs a lot of work. He has quick feet with speed and athleticism, but his technique needs a lot of coaching as he was beaten routinely in the one-on-ones. On some plays, Clark looked excellent; other plays, he looked clueless. At the combine, he put his athleticism on display, but clearly needs NFL coaching. Grades on Clark vary, and some teams in the market for offensive line help have told WalterFootball.com they have a third-round grade on Clark.

    Clark is all potential, but he has the athletic tools of rare size, length and quickness to be a left tackle in the NFL. He should not play right away as a pro.

    Clark has some bending ability to him with length. He also has light feet with surprising quickness and athleticism for a big blocker. Clark looks solidly placed as a Friday night selection.

    Clark had a strong regular season for the Red Raiders that improved his draft stock. He was a reliable pass protector against weak opponents and a quality run blocker. Clark had some issues against Oklahoma State and LSU as each team featured fast edge rushers.

    8/15/15: Clark has natural abilities as a pass-protector and moves well for his size. He also has the size to open holes in the ground game. Clark has a lot of upside to develop, but his NFL fit could come at guard.

    Clark played well for Texas Tech in 2014. He had a solid showing against Arkansas and edge rusher Trey Flowers in limited reps against each other as Flowers more often went against the right tackle. Clark was wise to return for his senior year.

    Texas Tech toyed with moving Clark to right guard for 2014, but he spent the season as the team's starting left tackle. Clark was a freshman sensation in 2012 as he started all 13 games at right guard and played at a high level for the Red Raiders. He was on numerous all-freshman teams nationally. In 2013, Clark took over at left tackle and once again was selected by the media as an all-conference standout.


  8. Willie Beavers, OT, Western Michigan
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 324. Arm: 33.5. Hand: 9.5.
    40 Time: 5.28.
    Projected Round (2016): 2-4.

    4/26/16: Beavers was the Broncos' starting left tackle for the past few seasons, and his quality play earned him an invitation to the Senior Bowl. He has some size, quickness and length to him. In Mobile, Beavers wasn't overly impressive, but he has some tools to work with. Beavers had a better showing at the combine.

    This is how Beavers was summarized by a scout in one of our Scuttlebutt articles, "Lacks strength, doesn't finish. Athletic with good size and gets some movement. Gets some movement, but projects to guard for us."


  9. Shon Coleman*, OT, Auburn
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 307. Arm: 35.13.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
    Projected Round (2016): 2-4.

    4/26/16: Coleman was Auburn's starting left tackle the past two seasons and a quality run blocker for the Tigers. He should've returned to Auburn for 2016 in order to improve before going pro. Coleman didn't run while at the combine.

    In speaking with sources, one team said they have Coleman as a late second- or early third-round pick. They feel that Coleman can play tackle or guard in the NFL. However, they think he should not start immediately and needs a year of coaching to get better before he sees the field.

    A few other teams said they had Coleman in the fourth round. They feel that he is limited as a player. Coleman has great size and while decent, is not quite a good athlete. He gets movement in the ground game, and his run blocking is much better than his pass protection. They don't feel he can play left tackle in the NFL and project him as a right tackle.

    Coleman has good size and strength. He could use work on speed rushers for the next level. In 2011, Coleman underwent treatment for leukemia, and after beating cancer, he returned to the field without any issues over the past two seasons.




  10. Spencer Drango, OT, Baylor
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 315. Arm: 32.75. Hand: 9.5.
    40 Time: 5.27.
    Projected Round (2016): 3-5.

    4/26/16: Drango had a fine 2015 season for Baylor, but doesn't look like he has the feet or agility to play left tackle in the NFL. Drango would be better off moving to right tackle or guard as a pro. At the Senior Bowl, Drango blocked well in the ground game, but had struggles in pass protection with speed rushers. Moving to guard could be his best fit.

    8/15/15: Drango played well for Baylor, but he wasn't tested by a lot of quality opponents. Late in 2014, he had some struggles with Michigan State. Drango was probably smart to return for his senior year.

    Drango is a strong run-blocker and has steadily improved his pass protection. Before getting injured in 2013, Drango was reaching dominant form as a pass-protector for Bryce Petty. Baylor really missed him when he went out for the season with a ruptured disc in his back in mid-November. The medical history is a concern, but Drango has upside with a nice combination of strength and athleticism.


  11. Joe Dahl, OT/G, Washington State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 299. Arm: 32.75. Hand: 8.75.
    40 Time: 5.18.
    Projected Round (2016): 3-5.

    4/26/16: Here's how one scout summarized Dahl in one of our Scuttlebutt articles, "He has starting potential. Nice player. Athletic, but lacks strength. He could be a poor man's [David] Bakhtiari."

    That summary was put on display at the Senior Bowl as Dahl was overpowered by a lot of defensive linemen. He struggled all week with the talented all-star defensive lineman. Dahl looked like he should move inside to guard in the NFL. He also has short arms to be an edge blocker as a pro. Dahl had a decent showing at the combine, but he still should move to guard in the NFL.

    Dahl broke into the lineup as a sophomore starter at guard, but he played left tackle for Washington State for the past two seasons. In the Cougars' offense, Dahl got a lot of preparation for blocking in pass protection on the edge.


  12. Caleb Benenoch*, OT, UCLA
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 311. Arm: 34.13.
    40 Time: 4.98.
    Projected Round (2016): 3-5.

    4/26/16: Benenoch played well for the Bruins in 2015. Still, he should have returned for his senior year to continue to improve his pass protection before going pro. His run blocking is definitely ahead of his pass protection, but Benenoch has some athletic upside. That could be seen in Indianapolis. Benenoch had a strong combine performance where he ran faster than expected. The former Bruin could be a sleeper pick who turns into a good NFL right tackle.

    8/15/15: Benemoch broke into the starting lineup as a freshman in 2013 and was impressive. He blocked well in the ground game and showed a lot of potential. As a sophomore, Benenoch was a honorable mention all-conference selection, but wasn't consistent and had some issues in pass protection. His run blocking for back Paul Perkins is further developed.




  13. Alex Lewis, OT, Nebraska
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 312. Arm: 34.
    40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2016): 3-5.

    4/26/16: Lewis had some struggles with some good edge rushers in 2015. At the East-West Shrine, he had a mixed week. Lewis allowed too much pass pressure, yet also looked good on some plays. He had a solid performance at the combine. Lewis is a strong run blocker who will need to improve his pass protection for the NFL.

    8/15/15: Lewis started out his college career at Colorado and played well there before transferring to Nebraska. He sat out the 2013 season before winning the left tackle position for Nebraska in 2014. Lewis was a good run-blocker for Ameer Abdullah last season. Before joining Nebraska, Lewis had an off the field issue with a fight outside of a bar with an Air Force cadet. He served 28 days in jail for third-degree assault.


  14. Vadal Alexander, OT/G, LSU
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 326. Arm: 34.5 Hand: 10.5.
    40 Time: 5.57.
    Projected Round (2016): 3-5.

    4/26/16: Alexander was a tough run blocker as a right tackle in 2015, but he lumbers and looks slow-footed in pass protection for that position in the NFL. Moving back inside to guard could be his pro future. NFL evaluators say they see Alexander as a guard, and he's going to have to watch his weight at the next level.

    At the Senior Bowl, sources said that Alexander had trimmed down from when they saw him at LSU during the season. In practice, he had some struggles in the pass-blocking one-on-ones, reinforcing the view of him as a better fit at guard. By the combine, Alexander had lost 10 pounds from his Senior Bowl weight, but he didn't impress in the field drills in Indianapolis.

    8/15/15: Alexander had a quality 2014 season. He was a powerful run-blocker with quickness and athleticism. He was wise to return for his senior year though. Alexander needs to continue to improve his pass protection and his abilities to play in space and mirror speed rushers. Following La'el Collins' departure for the NFL, LSU is reportedly planning on moving Alexander to right tackle for 2015. It wouldn't be surprising though if NFL teams view him more as a guard.

    Alexander has been an asset as a run-blocker for LSU over the past three seasons. As a freshman in 2012, he started nine games at right tackle before spending his sophomore year at left guard. Alexander was a road-grading guard for the Tigers in 2013. He paved the way for Jeremy Hill and also did a good job of protecting quarterback Zach Mettenberger.


  15. Kyle Murphy, OT, Stanford
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 305. Arm: 32.75. Hand: 9.75.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.33.
    Projected Round (2016): 4-6.

    4/26/16: Murphy was solid for Stanford, but looks more like a right tackle or guard competitor in the NFL. He struggled in pass protection at the Senior Bowl, but looked better as a run blocker. Murphy went to the combine, but an injury kept him from participating in the workout.

    8/15/15: Murphy became a starter in 2014 and turned in a quality year at right tackle for the Cardinal. His run blocking is ahead of his pass protection, and he will need to improve on that as a senior. It will be interesting to see if Murphy moves to left tackle to replace Andrus Peat.


  16. Avery Young*, OT, Auburn
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 328. Arm: 33.75.
    40 Time: 5.39.
    Projected Round (2016): 4-6.

    4/26/16: Young was Auburn's starting right tackle and a solid run blocker. As a sophomore, he had starts at left guard and right guard. It would have been good to see Young return to school and compete at left tackle with Shon Coleman entering the 2016 NFL Draft. However, a few teams have told WalterFootball.com that they like Young and are targeting him on Day 3.


  17. Jerald Hawkins*, OT, LSU
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 305. Arm: 34.25.
    40 Time: 5.23.
    Projected Round (2016): 4-6.

    4/26/16: Sources from multiple teams have said that they graded Hawkins on Day 3. They say he lacks strength and doesn't have power in his base. He plays with poor leverage, gets fooled, gets bulled around, and they think he's a backup quality player for the NFL. Hawkins has good feet and length, but he will need some development after starting on the blind side in college for only one season.

    Against Alabama, Hawkins was pushed around by the Crimson Tide's big, physical offensive linemen. He would have been better off returning for his senior year and getting better before heading to the next level, but decided to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

    8/15/15: Hawkins is a sleeper tackle who hasn't received a lot of attention despite being an effective blocker for the Tigers. He has done a nice job of opening holes in the ground game. Entering the 2015 season, the plan is for the junior to move to left tackle with the Tigers needing a replacement for La'el Collins.


  18. Brandon Shell, OT, South Carolina
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 324. Arm: 34.75.
    40 Time: 5.322.
    Projected Round (2016): 4-6.

    4/26/16: Shell was a right tackle before moving to the left side in 2015 as the replacement for Corey Robinson. Shell was decent over the season and showed some movement in the ground game. However, he doesn't look like he has the feet for left tackle in the NFL.

    Shell should be a right tackle or guard, and probably is more of a third-day pick. He had a quality week at the East-West Shrine and worked out pretty well at the combine. Shell's a sleeper pick who could start out as a quality backup.

    8/15/15: Shell had a mixed junior year. His run blocking for Mike Davis was solid, but Shell has to improve his pass blocking for the NFL. He struggles in space and with speed rushers. It will be interesting to see if Shell improves as a senior and if the Gamecocks move him to left tackle to replace Corey Robinson.




  19. Tyler Marz, OT, Wisconsin
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 316. Arm: 33.5.
    40 Time: 5.54.
    Projected Round (2016): 5-7.

    4/26/16: Marz played well for Wisconsin in 2015. He didn't get dominated by Alabama in the season opener, but he didn't impress either. That set the tone for the year. At the East-West Shrine, Marz did pretty well as a run blocker, but he struggled in the pass-protection one-on-ones.

    8/8/14: Marz played well for Wisconsin in 2014, but is a much stronger run-blocker than pass-protector. Right tackle or guard looks like a better fit for him as a pro. Marz was wise to return for 2015. If he improves his pass blocking, his stock should rise.

    Marz redshirted in 2011 and was a backup in 2012 before earning the starting left tackle position in 2013. Marz did a good job of run blocking - as one can expect for a Wisconsin offensive lineman. Fulfilling other expectations, he was overwhelmed by Jadeveon Clowney in that season's bowl game.


  20. Tyler Johnstone, OT, Oregon
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 301. Arm: 34.
    40 Time: 5.21.
    Projected Round (2016): 5-7.

    4/26/16: Johnstone was respectable in 2015 after missing all of 2014. He is a quick, athletic and nimble blocker who fit Oregon's system well. For the NFL, Johnstone needs more power as he can get pushed around. That was evident against Michigan State and in other contests. He had a decent performance at the combine.

    8/15/15: Johnstone was Oregon's left tackle in 2014 before going go out for the season with a torn ACL. Johnstone was a honorable-mention All-Pac-12 performer in 2013. He helped the Ducks with their potent ground attack. Generally, Johnstone was a good pass-protector for Marcus Mariota. Johnstone should add weight before turning pro.


  21. Fahn Cooper, OT, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 304. Arm: 34.75.
    40 Time: 5.17.
    Projected Round (2016): 5-7.

    4/26/16: The Bowling Green-transfer had a quality performance at the East-West Shrine. Cooper has versatile size and skills to be a backup guard or right tackle in the NFL. At Ole Miss, he was the right tackle on the other side from Laremy Tunsil. Cooper also played some left tackle when Tunsil was out. Cooper could be a competitor as a backup swing right or left tackle along with guard. Moving inside could be his best fit.


  22. Stephane Nembot, OT, Colorado
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 322. Arm: 5.39.
    40 Time: 5.39.
    Projected Round (2016): 5-7.

    4/26/16: Nembot is a right tackle prospect who was the Buffs' starting right tackle from 2013 on. As a junior, he was beaten for three sacks and 14 pressures, per Colorado. Nembot did not impress at the East-West Shrine.


  23. John Theus, OT, Georgia
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 313. Arm: 34.13. Hand: 10.5.
    40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2016): 5-7.

    4/26/16: Theus doesn't have a NFL skill set. He isn't quick or athletic enough for left tackle in the NFL. Theus doesn't have pro strength; he's just big. Sources say they are giving Theus late-round grades. At the Senior Bowl and combine, he didn't impress.

    8/15/15: Theus was a quality run-blocker in 2014. He opened holes for Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb. However, Theus isn't consistent enough in pass protection and looks like he has some heavy feet for a left tackle. Theus might be better moving to right tackle or guard in the NFL. Theus turned in quality seasons as an underclassman as he quickly earned a starting spot for Georgia.


  24. Joe Haeg, OT, North Dakota State
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 304. Arm: 33.5. Hand: 9.75.
    40 Time: 5.16.
    Projected Round (2016): 5-7.

    4/26/16: Haeg was the starting left tackle for North Dakota State over the past few seasons. He needed a good week at the Senior Bowl to rise up the rankings, but it didn't happen as he struggled in pass protection against the all-star defensive linemen. Haeg should move inside to guard for the NFL.


  25. Cole Toner, OT, Harvard
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 303. Arm: 32.75. Hand: 9.63.
    40 Time: 5.32.
    Projected Round (2016): 6-FA.

    4/26/16: The Senior Bowl likes to mix in some Ivy League and small-school players to give them an opportunity to show they can compete at a higher level. Sometimes it works out, like Ali Marpet in 2015, but most of the time, those players don't turn into highly rated prospects. Toner is part of the latter group as he was overwhelmed for the most part in Mobile. He needs to add strength for the NFL. Sources say they've given Toner late-round grades.


  26. Lene Maiava, OT/G, Arizona
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 290.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
    Projected Round (2016): 7-FA.

    4/26/16: Maiava moved around the offensive line for the Wildcats. For the NFL, his best fit would come at guard. He could also use more bulk and strength for the next level. At the East-West Shrine, Maiava was up and down. On some plays, he looked good, while on others, he struggled. Maiava could be a late-round or priority undrafted free agent worth developing. He didn't work out at the combine.


  27. Jordan Swindle, OT, Kentucky
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
    Projected Round (2016): 7-FA.

    4/26/16: Swindle was banged up in 2015, but played decently when in the lineup. He missed time with a groin injury. Swindle was the Wildcats' right tackle in 2014, and that would be his future NFL home. He didn't participate in the combine.


  28. Clint Van Horn, OT, Marshall
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 314.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.55.
    Projected Round (2016): FA.

    4/26/16: In 2015, Van Horn was a good run blocker, but he was banged up and missed a few games with injuries. He didn't work out at the combine.


  29. Jonah Austin, OT/G, Nicholls State
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 330.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.30.
    Projected Round (2016): FA.

    4/26/16: In mid-August, Austin started playing with Nicholls State after transferring from LSU. He didn't work out at the combine.

    8/15/15: Austin could take on a starting role at tackle with La'el Collins moving to the NFL. Austin's best fit for the next level could be at guard.
