  1. Martez Ivey, G/OT, Florida
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 305.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.15.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    8/9/17: Ivey blocked well as a sophomore, showing improvements in pass protection and run blocking. The key for him is to stay healthy and gain experience, as he has a ton of potential. Ivey was a five-star recruit coming out of high school and validated the ranking with an impressive freshman season. He was an effective starter at guard for Florida with natural athleticism.

    Ivey (6-5, 312) could use more power for the NFL, but he was only 18-19 during his first two seasons. He has plenty of time to get stronger despite having shoulder surgery after the 2015 season. Ivey is moving to left tackle for 2017 because David Sharpe skipped his senior year to move on to the NFL.






  2. Scott Quessenberry, G/C, UCLA
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 314.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.29.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    8/9/17: Quessenberry was UCLA's starting center in 2016 and did a nice job. He saw game action as a sophomore and freshman before missing the 2015 season. Quessenberry has the size to play guard or center in the NFL.


  3. Will Clapp, G/C, LSU
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 309.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    8/9/17: One could argue that Clapp was LSU's best interior lineman over Ethan Pocic in 2016. Clapp has dealt with a shoulder injury, but the plan is for him to be the starting center for the Tigers in 2017. He is a tough run blocker at the point of attack and reliable in pass protection.


  4. Michael Dieter, G/OT/C, Wisconsin
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 329.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.30.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    8/9/17: Entering fall camp, the plan was to move Dieter to left tackle to replace Ryan Ramczyk. Dieter enters the 2017 season having started as a freshman and sophomore. He had 11 starts at left guard and 16 starts at center before the planned move to left tackle. Dieter's size thoguh translates well to guard for the NFL. It will be interesting to see if he has the feet, arm length, quickness, and athleticism to excel at left tackle.


  5. Maea Teuhema, G, LSU
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.29.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    8/9/17: At the start of August camp for the 2017 season, Teuhema was suspended from the LSU football team, and he is looking to transfer. Thus, there's a good chance that he is forced to sit out the 2017 season and return to the field in 2018. That would make him a prospect for the 2019 NFL Draft. He also could go to another school, but decide to enter the 2018 NFL Draft. Thus, his status is very much a fluid situation.

    Early on in 2016, Teuhema started at left guard for LSU and had an excellent season opening holes for Leonard Fournette. Teuhema showed real power at the point of attack. LSU had to move Teuhema to right tackle at times, but he should be at his natural position of left guard in 2017. He is a big, strong blocker who has a mean streak.




  6. Ross Pierschbacher, G/C, Alabama
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 303.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    8/9/17: Pierschbacher is a tough run blocker who opened a lot of holes for Bo Scarbrough, Damien Harris, Josh Jacobs and Jalen Hurts in 2016. Pierschbacher has has played left guard and center for the Crimson Tide. He is a plus run blocker and should continue to improve as a pass protector. With Bradley Bozeman at center, Pierschbacher is likely to be a guard for Alabama, although he could get center consideration by the NFL.


  7. Beau Benzschawel, G, Wisconsin
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 321.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.





  8. Garrett McGhin, G, East Carolina
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 319.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.50.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.



  9. Sean Krepsz, G/C, Nevada
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 320.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.50.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.



  10. Colton Prater, G/C, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 300.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.15.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.





  11. Lester Cotton, G, Alabama
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 319.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.27.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.



  12. Asotui Eli, G/C, Hawaii
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.40.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.



  13. Jared Weyler, G/C, Minnesota
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 296.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.



  14. Nick Allegretti, G/C, Illinois
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 325.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.30.
    Projected Round (2019): 5-7.



  15. Dallas Warmack*, G, Alabama
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 299.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2019): 5-7.



  16. Levi Brown*, G/C, Marshall
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 290.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.18.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.
