2016 NFL Draft: Complete Offensive Tackle Rankings

The premium position on the offensive line; top tier tackles are always in high demand.  It’s also not always easy to continue in the role at the NFL level that sees a lot of college tackles requiring to shift inside to guard or even center to continue their careers.  This year is no different, with the like of Kansas State’s Cody Whitehair, Baylor’s Spencer Drango and LSU’s Vadal Alexander among many who will be listed elsewhere.  Arguably there are a number still part of these rankings that could also end up doing the same in the end, but we shall see! The 2016 NFL draft offensive tackle rankings have 30 given draftable grades of the 72 prospects scouted, graded and ranked. Sr = Senior, Jr = Junior, So = Sophomore.  An “r” prefix indicates a redshirt year (sat out for a year without playing, usually their first year of college). 1. Laremy Tunsil, Ole Miss, Jr – 1st Round. The Rebels left tackle will be a coveted prospect at the top of the draft despite his final year in college not going anywhere close to plan.  Just prior to the start of the 2015 season, an NCAA investigation looked into claims by his step-father that he had accepted improper benefits.  After initially being held out of the opening games of the season for precautionary reasons, Tunsil was indeed suspended for the first seven games of the season, cutting his final college year in half.  While very unfortunate, there was little chance of the incident having much of an effect on his draft stock, as he is just too talented.  Tunsil returned to the starting line-up against Texas A&M and was thrown straight into the fire up against a future high first round pick himself in Aggies pass rusher Myles Garrett.  If anyone had forgotten, Tunsil quickly reminded exactly why he’s such an exciting talent.  It was as if he’d never been gone.  While he had to sit out on the sidelines periodically due to being a little short on conditioning, when he was on the field, he was flawless. Garrett made plays during the game, but not when faced with Tunsil, who shut him down when they matched up one on one, despite it normally taking double teams to quiet the Aggies pass rusher.  Conversely, Auburn’s Carl Lawson gave Tunsil problems during their individual battle, beating the tackle on a couple occasions with quick rush moves and subsequently forcing him into a couple false start penalties in what was a difficult outing.  Overall though, Tunsil’s shortened 2015 season cemented his place as a true long term franchise tackle prospect.  He brings all the desired measurables with size, length, power and outstandingly quick and fluid movement.  His technique and coordination are polished to accompany his physical presence in both pass protection and as a run blocker, and his control and balance are consistent.  Tunsil is a special talent, one worthy of the top overall pick in the draft. 2. Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame, rJr – 1st Round. Stanley arguably failed to meet expectations this year.  Several pass rushers gave him plenty of trouble in pass protection as he looked much more vulnerable this year than last.  In addition, he’s having to contend with multiple reports and rumours appearing that question his work ethic both in practice and in games, that he doesn’t put in the effort required to improve his game.  There’s no question though that in terms purely of traits and measurables looked for in a starting offensive tackle in the NFL, Stanley has it all.  Stanley’s athleticism is great, and immediately stands out from his film.  That speed and athletic ability are matched by his long, rangy frame.  His long arms and legs are coordinated within a smooth, fluid kick slide that easily keeps up with speed off the edge and to mirror.  His ability to work in space both off the edge of the O-line, and as a blocker on the second level are very impressive.  However, as mentioned before, he still has his struggles as a pass protector.  Smart and versatile rushers can find ways through him too often, leaving him scrambling and holding.  If his opponent can get into his chest, Stanley sometimes fails to set his anchor properly, instead going backwards far too easily into the lap of his QB.  He is solid looking when he wins early off the snap, but doesn’t show much in the way of being able to recover and reset should he not.  After starting all 13 games at right tackle in 2013, Stanley took over from Zach Martin as Notre Dame’s left tackle each of the past two seasons.  He strongly considered leaving after his redshirt sophomore season to enter the 2015 draft, but wisely chose to stay at least another year to gain more experience, a good thing given that there is still work to be done to get the most out of his natural physical gifts.  Another who could go in the top 10, should the team that grabs him feel confident that he’s going to put in the necessary work required. 3. Jack Conklin, Michigan State, rJr – 1st Round. How Conklin ended up so poorly recruited is a mystery that plenty of coaches are hugely regretting. Rather than go to the one school who made him an offer (Div.2 Wayne State), Conklin instead chose to walk on at Michigan State.  After initially redshirting, he became a full time starter his redshirt freshman season including 10 at left tackle, where he has remained ever since.  In 38 career games, Conklin has allowed just 4 sacks, a hugely impressive statistic, and speaks to his superb ability in pass protection, and given the number of quality defenders that have lined up against him over the last three years in both the Big 10 conference and beyond becomes an even more impressive feat.  The Spartans’ left tackle has superb size and strength with an excellent short set anchor; once he establishes contact with his opposing rusher, that generally equals game over right there.  Given his big build and strength, it’s no surprise that he is a hugely effective run blocker, backing up the use of his size with aggression to always finish.  Conklin is about as steady as they come, consistent with every snap.  Although he proved he was a better athlete than given credit for at the combine, Conklin still lacks ideal quick movements and overall playing athleticism that make him a little more vulnerable to speed rushes than the top two listed here.  Some did, and may still, consider his best fit at guard, but he’s got the ability to play left or right tackle in the pros.  Either way, Conklin is sure to be a relatively safe selection.  Coaches will love his hard working attitude that is evident in his play each and every snap, a blue collar attitude and mentality, to use the cliché. 4. Shon Coleman, Auburn, rJr – 1st Round. It’s unfortunate that injury has kept Coleman from taking part in all the pre-draft events building up to the draft, as it’s prevented him proving that he deserves to be discussed among the other potential early picks at the position as he ought to be.  A big-time recruit out of high school, Coleman has had to come through a lot to get to this stage in his life as a soon-to-be professional football player.  Shortly after joining the Tigers, Coleman was diagnosed with leukaemia, and took a couple years out from the game to recover from the illness which he thankfully succeeded in beating.  He took another year out from actually playing in games in 2012 to work himself back in to football shape before finally returning to the field in 2013 as Greg Robinson’s backup.  Coleman took over the starting left tackle job the following season, where he has now been a full time starter on the blindside for two years.  With the time off, and due to turn 25 years old next November, Coleman made the decision to skip his senior year and head to the NFL now, and he’s certainly earned it.  The seriousness of the disease he overcame will surely mean extra attention with his pre-draft medicals, but hopefully that won’t need to be a factor to concern the team who picks him going forward.  On the field, Coleman has excelled in his two seasons as a starter, even though he’s a bit less polished at this stage than those above him, which is no surprise given his 3 years out of the game.  The occasional lapse in pass protection does see him give up a few sacks, and his body position and balance are inconsistent, at times looking immovable, and other times being a bit too easily brushed aside when he gets a little sloppy in his form.  Coleman does tend to lunge a bit, bending at the waist and not bending his knees, which is particularly noticeable in his run blocking.  There’s certainly some coaching required, but the upside is tremendous.  Despite the technical flaws, Coleman makes up for it with his ideal size including long arms, and natural strength.  He is a powerful drive blocker in the run game which negates or at least minimises some of the technical issues.  His long limbs allow him to mirror well and keep in touch with speed rushers, and he anchors well to maintain pocket integrity at the point of attack.  Coleman offers all the traits looked for in a long-term left tackle at the next level. 5. Jason Spriggs, Inidana, Sr – 1st Round. Spriggs played as a tight end early on before shifting to the offensive line during high school.  Over his 46 starts with Indiana, including immediately taking on the left tackle spot as a true freshman where he has practically been a fixture ever since, he has added strength and experience at the position while keeping the speed and athleticism from his tight end days.  Though he’s added weight, he’s still fairly lean for his long frame and really needs to continue to work hard in an NFL strength and conditioning program to build up his core strength to compliment his movement abilities.  The payoff could be huge with some patience though as the upside with Spriggs is very high.  He has been playing at a superb level in a talented Big 10 conference, only giving up a total of 4 sacks in the past two seasons.  In addition, he has been a key part of a hugely successful run game for the Hoosiers with Tevin Coleman topping 2,000 yards a couple seasons ago, and Jordan Howard continuing right where Coleman left off.  Spriggs was huge in Indiana’s bowl game versus Duke this post-season, despite it ultimately ending in a crushing overtime defeat.  Spriggs kept his QB clean all game, allowing no sacks, and was a huge factor in stand-in running back Devine Redding putting up 227 yards on the ground, who frequently found success behind the left side of the line.  With a bit of time, plus some added power and muscle, Spriggs could end up being looked back on as one of the better value picks from the early parts of the 2016 draft class, even if it ends up taking a year or two for him to emerge. 6. Taylor Decker, Ohio State, Sr – 2nd Round. After starting as a sophomore at right tackle in 2013, Decker has played at the left tackle spot the past two seasons, giving him 3 years of starting experience at a top program, including playing a role in the run to the National Championship in 2014.  He has an imposing and well-proportioned tall frame that the league is looking for.  The parts of Decker’s game that really stands out are his excellent agility for such a rangy guy, and how comfortable and composed he looks, never getting flustered.  Despite that, he is prone to being beaten too often and too easily by tricky quick-twitch pass rushers.  He doesn’t often give up sacks, but it could be argued that part of that is that he has always played with mobile quarterbacks such as Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett whose ability to escape and avoid those pressures has somewhat disguised this flaw to a certain extent.  It’s quite possible that Decker will end up getting exposed as an NFL player in this area.  His height can also work against him a bit at times by playing a bit too high, losing the leverage battle.  In addition, as a run blocker, Decker doesn’t tend to get very physical and aggressive in his block attempts.  Decker’s game just seems a bit lacking all round, not really excelling in any area with too many questions to warrant a first round grade.  His NFL size, agility, and big game experience are certainly big positives though. 7. Germain Ifedi, Texas A&M, rJr – 3rd Round. Entering the 2015 season as one of the bigger names in this group and a potential high pick, Ifedi’s game regressed this year and his stock has arguably dropped quite significantly over the course of the season.  Considering entering the last draft, Ifedi received a second round projection by the draft advisory committee but chose to stay.  His play this year though has been more that of a mid-round prospect.  Ifedi showed plenty of promise early on as a redshirt freshman guard, before moving to right tackle the next year and continuing to progress.  It was presumed that he would take the next step that the likes of Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews took before him, and move over to the left tackle spot this season, but ultimately ended up staying put.  In studying his game a bit closer, I came away unimpressed with his technique, in particularly with a very poor looking and awkward lack of co-ordination between upper and lower body, with a stiff, jerky motion, and footwork that frequently lets him down.  His excellent physical gifts with his size and strength has allowed him to get away with the technique problems at this level but it’s a bit of a question mark when projecting him to the next level that could even see him requiring to move back inside to guard again if he finds himself exposed on the edge in the pros.  Given his size and natural strength, it’s quite a surprise to see him not really come across as a mauler in the run game, instead often looking quite tame in his block attempts.  Another big question that has arisen that scouts have reportedly brought up has been his effort level at times this year, which has been inconsistent and lacking at times.  He has played better before 2015 so a belief that he can return to earlier form might mean a team decides to still pick him early. 8. Le’Raven Clark, Texas Tech, rSr – 3rd Round. If you were to build the prototypical offensive tackle, they would both look and move like Le’Raven Clark.  In addition to his 6ft 5, 316 lb muscular and toned frame, he has exceptionally long arms of over 36 inches and a fraction short of 12” hands.  He has arguably the fastest feet in this class that can match up with the quickest of edge rushers.  The raw tools are there for Clark to become a very talented starting left tackle in the league with as much upside as anyone.  The issue is that right now he isn’t using all those physical abilities well.  His film at times is downright bad.  Despite his quick footwork, he has so much trouble handling speed off the edge; athletic rushers continually found success past Clark over the past couple seasons.  His technique is inconsistent and frequently his lower body regresses into panicky choppy steps when under pressure that sees him give up far too many easy pressures and sacks.  As high a potential ceiling as Clark has, his possible floor to bust is equally low.  His cause is further not helped by the offensive system he enters the league from that is run by the Red Raiders, who has been drilled with a variety of techniques which are not suitable for the pro game, and he’ll have to unlearn a lot and rebuilt; a lot of those old habits won’t be easy to shake. 9. Joe Haeg, North Dakota State, Sr – 3rd-4th Round. Quarterback Carson Wentz isn’t the only future NFL player that will be drafted from the Bison this year.  When you win 5 straight national titles, no matter what the level, you likely have a number of big time players at key spots, and North Dakota State have relied on a superb left tackle throughout their incredible run.  Quite frankly, the FCS level has been far too easy for Haeg over his college career, dominating year in and year out.  He’s helped himself at both the Senior Bowl and the combine that he can match up with better quality opponents and equal them physically in testing, and those performances could result in a late day two selection.  There’s no doubt that Haeg has the size desired in an NFL level tackle.  He shows good movement, both in his kick slide, and in space on the second level.  While not overly aggressive in his style, Haeg is calm and comfortable with strong use of his hands.  All the success and winning he has been a part of will have built a confidence and mentality that will be very desirable to add to a roster, as will his huge amount of playing experience with 29 starts at right tackle his first two years, then another 31 straight starts at left tackle the next two years after taking over the blindside vacated by Miami Dolphins’ lineman Billy Turner.  Not bad from a former walk on. 10. Kyle Murphy, Stanford, Sr – 4th Round. It’s personal preference, but Christian McCaffrey really ought to have won the Heisman in this writer’s opinion!  Much of the success of the uniquely talented runner came through running behind the left side of his offensive line, who were fantastic all year in opening up so many of the holes McCaffrey flew through.  Left guard Joshua Garrett was rewarded for that by winning the Outland Trophy this year awarded to the top interior lineman in the country.  His teammate outside at left tackle though deserves plenty of credit himself for all that success.  Murphy was hugely successful at creating running lanes and clearly took a lot of pride in being physical, driving, and finishing every block he made.  He isn’t the most naturally strongly built offensive lineman, but that aggressive style and passion in his run blocking helps makes up at least partially for any questions in that respect.  While not quite as impressive in pass protection as he is blocking in the run game, Murphy is still solid at keeping his QB clean as well.  Having said that, his footwork does have a tendency to let him down at times, and consequently his balance too.  Murphy joined the Cardinal as a highly touted prospect out of high school, but took a while to emerge as a starter and deliver on that potential.  After a couple starts during his first couple years and seeing minor action in certain packages, Murphy became a full time starter at right tackle in 2014, and followed that up this year with the move to left tackle, replacing the departed Andrus Peat. 11. Willie Beavers, Western Michigan, rSr – 4th Round. The former Bronco lineman has the smooth fluid movement and athletic ability, combined with his 6ft 5, 324 lb build that is ideal to continue playing the left tackle position in the NFL.  He’s unsurprisingly a little bit under the radar coming from a MAC school that when he first broke into the lineup was one of the worst teams in the nation, finishing just 1-11 in 2013.  Head coach P.J. Fleck has turned the program around though, and for three years Beavers has been a key part of that improvement.  He looked a complete natural straight away in that redshirt sophomore year, playing with a quiet and understated confidence against strong opposition that included the likes of the Michigan State Spartans on the schedule.  His film is a little below his usual standard at times in his senior season, but reportedly has been carrying knocks over the course of 2015, and just getting on with it without complaints as expected from him.  His junior 2014 film is probably his most consistent and best of his college career therefore.  There’s work to do in his game for sure.  As accomplished as his footwork is, it’s not always matched by the upper body where he can over-reach and lose some balance, leading to him ending up on the turf a little too often.  Some of that is technique, some is over-aggression; the latter in a more controlled way should overall be a positive in his game though.  Beavers has the physical tools looked for at the NFL level, and offers plenty of upside value to potentially come from a mid-round selection down the road a bit. 12. Pearce Slater, San Diego State, Sr – 5th Round. An absolutely massive looking lineman at 6ft 7, 329 lbs, who looks like he might even have played at a heavier weight than that this year too.  Slater has been a two-year starter at right tackle for the Aztecs after transferring in from a junior college, and immediately stood out with his play that continued over 27 straight starts.  While not overly athletic he is more so than expected, and at his size and playing style based around using his imposing size and strength, he doesn’t really need to be regardless.  Slater is also helped by being surprisingly smooth in his movement, being technically sound and comfortable looking in both pass protection and run blocking most of the time.  There are occasions where he gets inconsistent with his hand placement or by over-reaching, which can be an issue, as at his size it’s not a good idea to become unbalanced.  Provided he keeps his weight in check, and his concentration up, he can continue as a starter on the right side in the pros too, and perhaps a bit of a day 3 bargain. 13. Jerald Hawkins, LSU, Jr – 5th-6th Round. After making 26 starts at right tackle for the Tigers the previous two years, Hawkins took over on the left side for his final year in 2015.  Though he has impressive length and natural quick movement and athleticism, Hawkins has a very skinny frame for a tackle, looking more like an inline blocking tight end almost, than an actual offensive lineman.  His game also lacks the power and punch ideally looked for, which is further not helped by some poor body position and anchoring technique.  Though there’s some developmental potential, Hawkins just doesn’t look the part either physically or technically to take more than a mid to late day 3 flier on him and try to develop. 14. Brandon Shell, South Carolina, rSr – 6th Round. The nephew of Hall of Famer Art Shell, he certainly has good bloodlines.  Shell’s best assets are his big build, long arms and easy strength, along with a huge amount of experience that comes from 37 straight starts in the SEC on both the right and left sides.  He’s very likely a right tackle prospect only for the pros, and though he is solid with his kick slide, hand placement and anchor, isn’t really the best athlete to cope with speed off the edge.  He could also benefit from playing with more aggression than he does.  It was notable when he played on the right side, that South Carolina didn’t actually choose to run to his side of the line very often, as he wasn’t exactly a stand out in creating lanes as a run blocker.  There’s a lot of limitations that would see him as a fairly low-end starter at best, and doesn’t offer a great deal of versatility or depth to cover other spots along the line which is preferred from backups that make him not a great choice as a reserve to suit up on game days either. 15. John Theus, Georgia, Sr – 6th Round. Theus is another who should get drafted, in part due to having good size and four years starting experience in the SEC.  His stock is similarly kept in check by lacking athleticism that sees him exposed on the edge of the line, and his build overall is untoned, carrying a lot of poor weight on his frame.  Theus unsurprisingly struggled at the Senior Bowl, being taken advantage of regularly during both drills during practice, and during the game itself.  All that said, his co-ordination is very reliable and holds up very well against the bull rush.  Over 52 starts he has manned both the left and right sides, proving very durable over the course of his college career. 16. Alex Lewis, Nebraska, rSr – 6th-7th Round. There’s a lot to like about the potential of Lewis physically, with good length, a well-proportioned frame, and impressive fluidity and flexibility looked for to play on the edge.  The mental game is a different question all together.  Originally starting out with the Colorado Buffaloes, Lewis transferred after an assault on an Air Force cadet that led to a short jail term being served.  In another albeit very different incident, he took criticism from Husker fans very poorly in wake of a defeat caused in part by his personal foul error, ranting at the team’s fans afterwards in a badly chosen loss of cool.  That question on his ability to handle pressure, along with turning 24 already this month, most likely keep him in the later rounds. 17. Jordan Swindle, Kentucky, Sr – 7th Round. Swindle flashed a lot of upside playing at right tackle in 2014, but also looked highly inconsistent and vulnerable at the same time, giving up easy routes to the QB with frustrating regularity.  His consistency greatly improved this season though, that came along with a shift to the blindside.  Whether it was based on more comfort playing that spot, or just through another year of experience and development, it was a far better overall performance as a senior from Swindle, looking much more stout while making the most out of his 6ft 7 frame.  It was a surprise that he was snubbed for the combine after such a good year, but he should still earn a draft selection despite that disappointment.  He offers good depth on the roster at multiple spots, with starting potential in his future as well. 18. Ryker Mathews, Brigham Young, rSr – 7th Round. At 6ft 5, 320 lbs, Mathews has NFL size, as well as very sound and reliable ability as a pass protector.  In addition to knowing how to use his size and strength to his advantage, he sets a strong anchor with a wide base that makes him tough to move or to counter against once he’s established contact with his hands.  With experience at both tackle and at guard, he offers plenty of cover across the line as a backup on the depth chart at the least.  Durability is definitely a concern though, having torn his labrum back as a freshman, followed by several hip injuries since that required double hip surgery in 2013 before returning as a starter in 2014. 19. Stephane Nembot, Colorado, rSr – 7th Round. Nembot looks the part at 6ft 7, 322 lbs, but is very raw.  While there’s potential to mould the natural physical traits, his rawness comes despite a great deal of experience with over 40 starts under his belt.  Better progress over that time would have been more encouraging, and he continued to struggle while being coached up at the East-West Shrine event earlier this year.  He’s a high character prospect though with a lot of rare abilities for someone who can move as well as he can at his size. 20. Cole Toner, Harvard, Sr – 7th Round. The two-year starter has impressed at the Ivy League school since breaking into the first team lineup in 2014, earning him both a Senior Bowl and combine invite.  He had some struggles making the step up in competition though in Mobile, and isn’t a particularly notable athlete either despite offering good size for the position.  He makes up for that somewhat in his film though with excellent aggression and physicality in both his pass pro and run blocking.  The latter is a strength to his game where he also shows intelligence in his blocking to turn his man or direct the defender inside to set the edge and open up running lanes.  In the pass game, Toner handles attacks into his body well, but rushers can find success in disengaging and working around him both inside and outside.  There’s developmental potential, but Toner could be a bit of a project before being able to contribute regularly. 21. Clay DeBord, Eastern Washington, rSr – 7th Round. There’s a lot to like about DeBord’s future, with size, athleticism and technique, where he shows excellent lower body skills in his kick slide and wide base that looks smooth, comfortable and always in control.  His 51 starts give him a lot of playing experience, and while that came at the FCS level, he looked the part when facing quality opposition in Oregon to open the 2015 season this year, despite only recently making the move over to the left tackle position. 22. Halapoulivaati Vaitai, TCU, Sr – 7th Round. Vaitai has size, in particularly with arm length, and moves surprisingly well.  However, he is vulnerable to both strength and speed.  His hands don’t have the necessary power to win regularly enough, and he was left chasing too often by speedy undersized edge rushers.  As a run blocker, there’s also inconsistencies, including getting off balance too often, that leads to ending up on the ground a bit too much.  He’s been a solid starter for the Horned Frogs for a while, but may struggle with the transition to the next level.  There’s also the possibility of converting inside to guard perhaps. 23. Avery Young, Auburn, rJr – 7th-PFA (Priority Free Agent). Young offers a good, broad frame but isn’t very agile and plays with underwhelming physicality.  He’s fairly efficient and reliable however, and has experience at multiple spots across the line both inside and outside that ought to see him earn a role as a solid backup at the very least. 24. Caleb Benenoch, UCLA, Jr – 7th-PFA. He’s athletic and quick, moving well to the second level to play in space, but is extremely thin-hipped and slight.  The biggest issue is that he has played better at guard than at tackle, but lacks the build to hold up inside, often being out-muscled wherever he’s played over the past couple years.
