Which Offensive Linemen Interviewed Well at the Combine

NFL teams conducted their formal interviews with the offensive line prospects Tuesday night at the NFL Scouting Combine. There were some stars in the team interviews, while a few of the top prospects illustrated they are a work in progress on the mental side of the game. Here is a rundown on some of the top prospects and how they interviewed: 

- Alabama offensive tackle Jonah Williams was phenomenal, according to team sources. They were very impressed with his development and his football I.Q. His character and work ethic also came through. One source said, "Williams was one of the best OL interviews I've ever had. He definitely helped himself."   

Williams is viewed as being a safe pick by teams even though he may not stay at left tackle. As a result, he could rise higher in the first round just because teams think there is little bust potential with him. They think he is a safe pick to turn into a quality starter and have a good, long NFL career.   

- Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom was the other star of the interviews . Sources say that Lindstrom was tremendous. His football I.Q., knowledge of technique, and personal character were off the charts. Lindstrom's interviews help his standing, and some teams think he could be a plug-and-play starter. 

- Texas A&M center/guard Erik McCoy was another player who interviewed well. McCoy is quietly rising with teams, as they have really liked the tape that McCoy has produced. His 2018 season was impressive, and he is one of the few players who has a quality tape going against both Clemson and Alabama. McCoy's good interviews here in Indianapolis could improve his chances of a team selecting him in the second round.  

- Sources say that Ole Miss left tackle Greg Little did OK in the interview. Teams feel that it could take some time for Little to learn things he will need to know for the NFL, but they feel that he is capable of learning and they don't think he lacks the capacity to learn. They said Little "doesn't know what he doesn't know," and he could use some developmental time.   

- Ditto for Florida offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor. They said that Taylor can learn as well, but he will need some time to be taught things he needs to know for the NFL.  

- Penn State's Connor McGovern earned compliments for his interviews. There are many teams that need offensive line help, and McGovern is creating a buzz with teams that should help him to rise.
