  2. Cade Mays, G/OT, Tennessee
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 318.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.1.
    Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    7/6/20: Mays was a good starter on Georgia's all-star offensive line in 2019 and could have been the replacement for Andrew Thomas at left tackle for 2020, but Mays decided to transfer to Tennessee.

    Mays started seven games as a freshman in 2018 while also dealing with injuries. With his versatile size, Mays could fit at guard or tackle, and it will be interesting to see where he settles in at Tennessee. Mays is a strong run blocker with good size to create a push at the point of attack.

  3. Luke Matthews*, G/C, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
    Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    7/6/20: Matthews is the latest in the family line stemming from Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews. Luke Matthews followed brother Jake to Texas A&M, but unlikes his brother, Luke Matthews could be more of a candidate to play on the inside of the offensive line. Matthews broke into the starting lineup in 2019 after redshirting in 2018. He had a solid debut with the skill set to be a guard or center. Over his junior and senior years, Matthews could develop into an early-round prospect.

  4. Trey Smith, G, Tennessee
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 320.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.32.
    Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
    View Ranking History


    7/6/20: Smith returned to the field 2019 and was a solid left guard for Tennessee. It was a wise decision to return for his senior year and show that the blood-clot issue is behind him so NFL teams will have less of a concern there after two healthy seasons.

    Smith had a strong sophomore season for Tennessee prior to missing the final five games of 2018 with blood clots in his lungs. The issue first impacted Smith during workouts after his freshman season. After being held out for some time, Smith returned to practice in training camp and played the first seven games of the 2018 season while showing his impressive skill set for the Volunteers.

    In 2017, Quenton Nelson was the top offensive lineman in college football, 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 looked like he was just scratching the surface with the upside to be even better with more experience. Smith played guard and left tackle for the Volunteers as a freshman.

    Height: 6-5. Weight: 345.

    View Ranking History


    7/6/20: Carman is a big interior blocker who was very good for Clemson in 2019. It was his first season as a starter after he served as a backup at left tackle during his freshman season. Carman could be even better now that he has some experience. He could stand to drop some weight for the NFL.
