  1. Tre Smith*, OT/G, Tennessee
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 320.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.32.
    Projected Round (2020): 1.

    8/14/18: Quenton Nelson was the top offensive lineman in college football in 2017, but the second-best guard in the nation could have been Smith. Considering there were other good guards like Will Hernandez and Braden Smith who were second-round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, that is really saying something for how Smith played as a freshman.

    Smith dominated at the point of attack and was extremely impressive when taking on Alabama. He looks like he is just scratching the surface the upside to be even better with more experience. Smith played guard and left tackle for the Volunteers as a freshman. It will be interesting to see where the Volunteers line him up in the years to come, but Smith is extremely talented with a ton of upside. If he doesn't succeed at tackle, he should be a safe pick to be a good guard.






  2. Andrew Thomas*, OT, Georgia
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 320.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.10.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-2.

    8/14/18: Thomas was very impressive at right tackle as a true freshman, starting there all season and helping the Bulldogs to produce a dominant rushing attack. He also flashed impressive athleticism and length in pass protection. With Isaiah Wynn moving on to the NFL, Thomas is being projected to move to left tackle for Georgia. Some NFL advance scouts told me that Thomas jumped out at them when watching practice and tape. They think he has the potential to be an early-rounder in his draft class.


  3. Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 325.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.10.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-2.

    8/14/18: Little showed a ton of potential as a freshman starter. He was up and down as a sophomore in 2017, but has plenty of upside. The 6-foot-6, 325-pounder has improved as he gains experience and could become elite as a junior. Little could end up being a good left tackle prospect. He has size, length and mobility.

    "I'm holding my breath on Little. He could soar or topple but, no question, he has the talent," said one NFC scout. "He's not Laremy Tunsil as a player even though Little is two inches taller and 20 pounds bigger with great length. Little is a typical five-star kid who needs to develop the tenacity that Tunsil had. Little would be a top-five pick if he showed that."


  4. Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 290.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.10.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-3.

    8/14/18: Williams was a freshman starter at right tackle for Alabama in 2016 and did a nice job of opening holes in the ground game. The 6-foot-5, 296-pounder took over as the starting left tackle with Cam Robinson moving on to the NFL, and Williams played well on the blind side in 2017. He is an intelligent blocker who has the versatility to be effective in the run game and in pass protection. He has size, flexibility and mobility.

    One AFC scout for National said he had Williams graded on the second day entering the 2018 season. They thought he may have to play at right tackle or guard in the NFL, but they said that Williams is very smart and reliable. With a good year, he could be a late first-round candidate given the need at the position across the league.


  5. Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 340.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.35.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

    8/14/18: Taylor played right tackle for the Gators last year and has impressed some team evaluators. "Taylor at Florida is very talented with size, movement skills, and strength," said one scout. "His stock could boom with a strong season. He needs to be more consistent though." In the final two games of the 2017 season, Taylor started at left tackle for Florida. If he can't play on the blind side, he could be a guard or right tackle in the NFL.




  6. Walker Little*, OT, Stanford
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 304.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.40.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

  7. David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.44.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-4.

  8. Isaiah Wilson*, OT, Georgia
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 345.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.60.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-4.

  9. Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 308.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.29.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-4.

  10. Mekhi Becton*, OT, Louisville
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 340.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.60.
