Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Tristan Wirfs, Iowa
1. Alabama image Evan Neal, G, Alabama
Height: 6-7. Weight: 360.
Projected 40 Time: 5.5.
Projected Round (2023): 1-3.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Neal is a massive blocker who started at left guard as a freshman and then right tackle as a sophomore. He is a powerful run blocker who has excellent length and girth. As a sophomore, Neal showed enough athleticism and good enough feet to probably stay as a right tackle in the NFL. Neal would also be a good fit at right guard as a pro. It will be interesting to see if the Crimson Tide use him as a replacement for Alex Leatherwood at left tackle in 2021.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Cesar Ruiz, Michigan
2. Texas A&M image Kenyon Green, G, Texas A&M
Height: 6-4. Weight: 325.
Projected 40 Time: 5.4.
Projected Round (2023): 1-3.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Assuming Green stays healthy over his senior year, he will enter the NFL having started three straight seasons for the Aggies. If his play stays consistent, he will provide evaluators three years of impressive tape. Texas A&M has had a lot of success running behind Green, who has also been steady in pass protection. He has a good skill set and will enter the next level with a lot of experience.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Robert Hunt, La.-Lafayette
3. Ole Miss image Nick Broeker*, G/OT, Ole Miss
Height: 6-4. Weight: 305.
Projected 40 Time: 5.
Projected Round (2023): 1-2.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Broeker had an impressive debut as a freshman in 2019, starting 12 games at left tackle. He remained at left tackle in 2020 and did a solid job of protecting Matt Corral. Broeker's size and length might make him a better fit at guard as a pro, but he is a tough blocker who should enter the NFL with good development and experience as a likely 4-year starter unless he gets injured or leaves school early.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Solomon Kindley, Georgia
4. Ohio State image Harry Miller, G/C, Ohio State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 315.
Projected 40 Time: 5.3.
Projected Round (2023): 1-3.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Miller broke into the starting lineup for the Buckeyes in 2020 and had a solid debut. He was a dependable run blocker and pass protector for Justin Fields. With Josh Myers moving on to the NFL, it will be interesting to see if Ohio State moves Miller to center. He has good size and strength for the position, and if he can play both interior spots, that will increase his value for the next level.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Logan Stenberg, Kentucky
5. Georgia image Jamaree Salyer, G, Georgia
Height: 6-3. Weight: 340.
Projected 40 Time: 5.5.
Projected Round (2023): 2-4.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Before 2020, Salyer was buried on the depth chart. Following Andrew Thomas, Isaiah Wilson, and Solomon Kindley moving on to the NFL, Salyer was able to break into the starting lineup. He played left tackle for nine games in 2020 before moving to left guard at the end of the year.

For the NFL, Salyer projects to the inside of the line because of his lack of length. He is a strong and thick blocker who can get after defenders in the ground game. Conditioning has been a problem for some recent Georgia offensive linemen like Kindley and Trey Hill, so Salyer will need to avoid falling into that trap as a senior.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Shane Lemieux, Oregon
6. Alabama image Javion Cohen*, G/OT, Alabama
Height: 6-4. Weight: 325.
Projected 40 Time: 5.35.
Projected Round (2023): 2-4.

Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Netane Muti, Fresno State
8. Texas A&M image Luke Matthews, G/C, Texas A&M
Height: 6-4. Weight: 315.
Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
Projected Round (2023): 3-5.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: 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 unlike his brother, Luke Matthews could be more of a candidate to play on the inside of the offensive line at the next level.

Luke Matthews broke into the starting lineup in 2019 after redshirting in 2018. He had a solid debut and showed the skill set to play at guard or center. An injury knocked him out of the 2020 season, but Matthews is receiving a lot of praise about his potential from Jimbo Fisher and other teammates as he takes over as the starting center.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Cameron Clark, Charlotte
9. Michigan image Zak Zinter, G/OT, Michigan
Height: 6-6. Weight: 334.
Projected 40 Time: 5.2.
Projected Round (2023): 3-5.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Zinter is a massive interior blocker who could play center for Michigan, but he may compete beter at guard in the NFL. Zinter could rise as he gains experience. With his size, he is a load as a run blocker, but improving his ability to handle speed rushers will be important for the NFL.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Ben Bartch, St. John's
10. Florida image Ethan White*, G, Florida
Height: 6-5. Weight: 335.

  • '20 - Calvin Throckmorton, Oregon
12. Michigan image Trevor Keegan, G, Michigan
Height: 6-6. Weight: 327.
Projected 40 Time: 5.28.
Projected Round (2023): 4-6.

Previous Seasons

  • '20 - John Simpson, Clemson
13. USC image Justin Dedich, G/C, USC
Height: 6-2. Weight: 300.
Projected 40 Time: 5.3.
Projected Round (2023): 4-6.
View Ranking History

7/24/21: Dedich has played guard and center for the Trojans and should take on a bigger role as an upperclassman. He has size and length limitations, so center could be his best position to compete at in the NFL.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Ben Bredeson, Michigan
14. Penn State image Mike Miranda, G/C, Penn State
