Trey Adams, OT, Washington
Height: 6-7. Weight: 302. Projected 40 Time: 5.32. Projected Round (2019): 1. 8/9/17: Sources say they think that Adams could emerge as one of the top talents for the 2018 NFL Draft. They compared Adams' size and athleticism to Taylor Lewan coming out of Michigan, and also said that Adams has good technique to go with his impressive skill set. Adams impressed scouts last season with how he shut down the Crimson Tide defenders anytime he was isolated on them. That Alabama defense featured three dangerous pass-rushers in the form of Jonathan Allen, Tim Williams and Ryan Anderson, who all were early round talents in the 2017 NFL Draft. The 2017 season will probably be Adams' last, as sources see him as a potential high first-rounder for the 2018 NFL Draft.
Connor Williams, OT, Texas
Height: 6-6. Weight: 290. Projected 40 Time: 5.10. Projected Round (2019): 1-2. 8/9/17: Williams broke into the starting lineup at left tackle as a freshman for the Longhorns in 2015 and locked down the position. He improved as a sophomore as he was a steady pass protector and consistent run blocker. Williams has good length, quickness and athleticism. It would be good to see him become stronger and show more heavy hands as a junior.
Martez Ivey, OT/G, 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.
Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson
Height: 6-5. Weight: 295. Projected 40 Time: 5.12. Projected Round (2019): 2-3. 8/9/17: Hyatt played well in 2016 and did his job to keep Deshaun Watson healthy. Hyatt had an impressive freshman season as the blind-side protector for Watson in 2015 as well. Not only did he help protect Watson, Hyatt did a nice job of opening holes for Wayne Gallman.
Hyatt could use more strength for the NFL, but he is still a young player with time to develop. Hyatt also could be a candidate to move inside as a pro.
Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma
Height: 6-8. Weight: 360. Projected 40 Time: 5.45. Projected Round (2019): 2-3. 8/9/17: Brown has been a starting left tackle for Oklahoma, but for the NFL, he is more of a right tackle competitor. Brown was a tough run blocker for the Sooners in 2016, opening a lot of holes for their talented tandem of running backs. He spent 2015 and 2016 at left tackle, but he's too tall for that spot in the NFL. Brown could be a good right tackle candidate in his draft class.
Greg Little*, OT, Ole Miss
Height: 6-6. Weight: 325. Projected 40 Time: 5.10. Projected Round (2019): 2-3.
Michael Dieter, OT/C/G, 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.
