promoting my books for sale primarily on this site. As a result, I
have sold almost 500 books in the past year. Thank you for your
support and patronage, both are greatly appreciated. I cannot tell
you how happy it made me when I read that report. So thank you Draft
fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of
my books and website worldwide.
OLs Group One.
Allen- Michigan State, 6-1, 300, (U
5.33-5.3), (S-1.88, 1.), 27, 32 3/8" Arms – He needs to be
a great athlete because he is small even for a Zone blocking Center. He is
not as good or consistent as his brother. Not bad pulling outside. Nice
speed on pull drill. He looked like Sprout next to the Jolly Green Giant
when he was doing drills next to Orlando Brown. Quick feet in slide. He
had some suddenness in mirror drill.

Bright- Stanford, 6-5, 299, (U 5.33-),
(S-1., 1.), 33 1/4" Arms- I liked Bright at Stanford. He played OLT. He looks more like a big OG sometimes. Moves like an OG inside to seal the DE. Moves backwards nicely, low and with good feet. Moves better backwards in second half. Keeps his hands up
with great technique, but will let them get wide sometimes.
Sporting News All-America second team. All-Pac-12 second team. Pac-12 All-Academic honorable mention. Pop Warner College Football Award finalist.
Campbell Trophy semifinalist. 14 games played. Played every position on offensive line (except center) throughout career.

#3 Orlando Brown- Oklahoma, 6-7.7 345, (U
5.86-5.77)! (S-2.0!.), 35" Arms– He just ran himself out
of the 1st, and Day Two as well. The Combine was a disaster for him. Very
slow feet turning upfield. Too high in pass pro drill. Way too high. He
did not look like an NFL OT in mirror drill. He was just too high. He had
the worst Combine I have ever seen. No. He is now undraftable.
Cappa- Humboldt State, 6-6, 305, (U
5.36-5.33), (S-1.87), 24. 32 5/8" Arms – He made some money
at the Senior Bowl, but he lost some at the Combine. He looked like an OG
at the Combine. His 32.5" arms are not going to let him play OT. Nice
feet moving laterally. I like how he moves backwards. He has some quicks
in his feet. He has some power in his hands. Nice feet on bail drill.
Sooth but not twitchy in mirror drill.

Christian- Louisville, 6-5, 298, (U
5.34-5.31), (S-1.83), 19-reps, 35"A" Arms – His feet
are a little slow. Nice job pulling outside. Nice feet mover. A little
slow off the snap. Great form moving backwards. He showed some nice quick
in slide drill. I thought he did a good job in rabbit drill. He got a
little too wide, but he held up.

himself out of the Draft. Great feet moving laterally. Looks smooth and
natural pulling outside. He can get a good hit pulling outside. A little
slow to the outside. Smooth and light in mirror drill. He looked like an
NFL OG in mirror drill.
Three-year starter on the offensive line for the Tigers ... Opted to forgo final year of eligibility and enter into the 2018 NFL Draft ... Earned first team All-SEC at two positions ...

5.23-5.3), (S-1.78, 1.), 23-reps, 32 1/8" A" Arms – He
had a spectacular off season. He is an NFL OC waiting to happen. Needs
some work on his core. Smooth feet moving backwards. He is consistent at
everything. Plug and play Day Three OC. Lowers his head when he pulls
outside to lead the hit with his head. He looked like an OC in slide
drill. Smooth and replaced in mirror drill. He looked like an interior NFL
OL in mirror drills.

ate (Aug. 30, 2014). Accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Corbett- Nevada, 6-4, 306, (U
5.15-5.18), (S-1.76, 1.), 19 reps, 33 1/8" Arms – He
played all over the line at the Senior Bowl. He needs to get stronger, but
he can play all three interior OL positions. He looks like a plug and play
OG. he might even be able to start at OC as a rookie. Nice quick feet
moving backwards. He is going to be a instant starter in the NFL. He gets
nice He did a good job getting back in slide drill. Showed nice aggression
pulling outside. Great form and technique moving outside in pass pro from
OC. Smooth and controlled. He stopped moving when the rabbit slipped. He moved
smoothly and natural when the rabbit went nuts in mirror drill. One of the
best I've seen inside.

Crosby- Oregon, 6-5, 309, (U
5.24-5.2), (S-1.86), 17 reps, 35 1/4" Arms– He had a
good but not great off season so far. A little slow for OLT.
He looked more like an ORT at the Combine. Looked natural in pass
pro drills. Not quick enough in slide drill. He had great feet in mirror
drill. Smooth and in control. He looked like an ORT. At best he could be a
swing tackle. He could slip into the 3rd Round, if a team thinks he could
be a Swing Tackle. I am not sure he can consistently play OLT in the NFL.
But having a ORT, who can be the backup at OLT is valuable enough to take
in the 3rd. Plus, as we move more and more into passing League, ORT become
more valuable every year.
Started all 13 games his senior season ... Named third-team All-America by College Sports Madness and honorable mention All-America by both SB Nation and CollegeFootballNews ... Seventh linemen in UO history to be awarded the Morris Trophy as the Pac-12 Offensive Lineman of the Year, voted on by opposing defensive linemen ...

Daniels- Iowa, 6-3, 306, 21 reps, 33
3/4" Arms – His feet did not look good at the Combine with
all that added weight at first. He did not hold the extra weight well, at first.
But he got better the more drills he did. He was on of may favorite OLs by
the end of the day. After he loosened up a little, He did look like a Zone pulling
guard at the Combine. He lost
his feet a little in one drill. He is not as balanced as he was when he was playing at
He gets real low turning the corner when he pulls outside. He has
some nice quicks moving outside in pass pro drills. Moved back as smooth
as anyone in the Slide drill. He was as good as it gets in mirror drill.
He looked like he was coached by Ferentz. Phenomenal with hands up,
staying with the rabbit with his feet moving like a rabbit, and his body
was smooth and easy. If he can hold that weight he can be the second or third
got better and better as the Combine moved on. In a year of great OCs, he
his top 2 or 3. He is a zone blocking Center who fits Atlanta's Zone
blocking scheme perfectly. It is going to be very hard for them to pass on
Daniels at pick 26. His floor might be pick 26. Atlanta has to get a zone blocking
OG to help their offense.
Demby- Maine, 6-4, 335, (U
5.69-5.55), (S-1.94), 17 reps, 33 3/4" Arms- His Forty was a
disaster. That is an OGs time at best. He is a Day Three guy, at best. A little light in the hands sometimes. He can slide like an OLT.
Hips are a little tight. Struggle a little flipping his hips. He looked
much better at the Senor Bowl. He looked more like an OG at the Combine. I
thought he could play OT after the Senior Bowl. He is probably a Day Three
project, who has a chance to slip into the end of the 3rd, maybe on a Comp
has nice feet, and they showed up well in drills. He really looks the
part. He looked like he had a chance at OLT at the Senior Bowl. He also
played ORT at the Senior bowl. He moves backwards nicely with his hands
and feet in balance. He showed some power in his punches and hands. He
struggled against good speed, which he didn't see in college. So teams
have to decide if he is behind, or just can't reach that burst moving
backwards in Pass Pro that you need in the NFL.

Gates- Nebraska, 6-5, 295, (U
5.47-5.47), (S-1.87), 20 reps, 32" Arms– Needs work on his
core. Not the best feet moving sideways. Leads with his face when he
pulled outside. Thinking about his feet too much. Tight hips. He is not an
NFL OLT. He might have to move inside, as a Day Three OG.
Outlook: Nick Gates was a mainstay on the Husker offensive line for three seasons from 2015 to 2017, before electing to forego his senior season and move on to the National Football League. Gates began his career as the Huskers' starter at right tackle as a redshirt freshman, before setting in at left
Gossett- Appalachian State, 6-4.7,
311, (U 5.21-5.27), 6-5, 315, 32 reps, 33 7/8" Arms – Nice
quick feet moving laterally. Gets a little high moving backwards. He has
some quick feet out on the edge. He might be an ORT in emergencies. He got some great sound from his hands
when he hit the bags. Nice tight slide. Very tight hips. Nice job in
mirror drill. He is a heavy handed Day Three OG. He moved better and
faster than expected. 32 Reps was a nice number for him.
Started all 13 games at right guard, allowing him to end his career with 46 consecutive starts. App State went 36-10 in those games … Earned his second straight selection to the All-Sun Belt Conference first team as App State became the first Sun Belt program with three offensive linemen honored as first-team choices … Ranked in the preseason as the No. 2 draft-eligible prospect in the Sun Belt by SouthernPigskin.com, Gossett led the Mountaineers with 76 knockdown blocks, including 21 pancakes. During the regular season, earned a grade of 82 percent (plus plays vs. minus plays) from App State’s coaches while posting only six missed assignments in 802 snaps. Allowed no sacks, committed only three penalties, had 68 knockdown blocks and recorded 17 pancake blocks in those 12
Harrison- West Georgia, 6-6,
4.9-4.75), (S-1.79), 292,
34" Arms– He is a phenomenal athlete. A zone blocking team
is going to try and pick this kid up late. Great feet moving laterally.
Best feet in Group One. Very light on his feet. He was the best athletes in
Group One. Amazing feet and balance, and bouncy ankles and calf.
great outside. He would be a deadly pulling OG. But he is such a great
athlete that he has to be outside at OT. Very light hands. Great initial
burst off snap in pass pro. Amazing quicks moving backwards. He was the
quickest in slide drill. He has some twitch moving sideways in mirror
drill. He is an NFL player. He has some Character Concerns.
Outstanding offensive lineman joining the Wolves for the 2017 season ... transferred to UWG from the University of Texas. ... transferred to Texas from Contra Costa Community College (Calif.) who enrolled at UT in the summer of 2013 ... one of the top-rated junior college offensive linemen in the nation in
#15 Taylor Hearn- Clemson, 6-4, 330,
(U 5.45-5.54), (S-1.89), 18 reps, 32 1/2" Arms, -
Average feet. Clumsy hands sometimes. Nice feet and hips drills. But his
hips were a little tight. He got a little behind. He really looks the
part. He is a wide bodies OG. He plays and stays low and mean. Nice
finisher. He plays to the whistle. Nice job riding the big inside rusher
past the QB. His forty time is a little worrisome, but other wise he is a
plug and play OG. He has the nasty demeanor that teams want.
Valuable member of Clemson’s offensive line who was a mainstay as the starting left guard in 2016 and 2017 ... had 69.5 knockdowns in 1,979 snaps over 43 games (29 starts) in his
career. 2017: Third-Team All-ACC selection ... permanent team co-captain ... had 29 knockdowns in 777 snaps over 14 games (14 starts) ... had two knockdowns in 37 snaps against Kent State on Sept. 2 ... had a team-high four knockdowns in playing all 69 snaps against No. 13 Auburn.
#15 Will Hernandez- UTEP, 6-2, 327, (U
5.14-5.2), (S-1.76), 37 reps, 32" Arms– Bouncy feet moving
backwards. Elite feet for an OG. Pure power player. He had to bail in
space in pass pro sometimes. He has some snap in his hips. Very quick and in control
in rabbit drill. He showed some twitch, while somehow also looking in
control. He might go in the 1st after all. He is not a guaranteed prospect.
He has a lot of similarities to Jonathan Cooper at the Combine, including
height (6-2.1), arm length (33"), and Bench reps (35).
(SENIOR): Started all 12 games played at the left guard position … named to AP All-America second team for second year in a row, while also being named to the CBS Sports All-America second team ... earned All-Conference USA first team honors ... named to AP Midseason All-America team ... named to offensive line allowed zero sacks against WKU and UTSA … O-line allowed 1.0 sack at no. 7 Oklahoma and at C-USA West Division Champions North Texas … running game hit 100 yards or more in seven contests while rushing touchdowns were scored in the first six games of the season … Miners rushed for season-high two touchdowns against UTSA … Miners gained a season-high 410 yards of total offense and rushed for a season-most 164 yards with a score against LA Tech in which Joshua Fields hit a career-high 137 yards … Miners rushed for 163 yards and a score against
Jones- Ohio State, 6-4, 299, (U 5.33-5.38), 35 1/8" Arms–
Needs work on his core. Nice feet moving laterally. Grabs shirt very well
when he pulls outside. He can move when in slide drill. I love his
kickslide. That is why I thought he was an OLT prospect. Smooth and natural in
slide drill. He beat the OL rushing to the spot. High hipped. His hips are
tighter than I thought they'd be. Smooth moving sideways. Anticipates
sometimes. Kept hands up in mirror drill. His Forty is a big problem.
Jones is the next in line at a marquee position for the Buckeyes as the last three fulltime offensive left tackles – Mike Adams, Jack Mewhort and Taylor Decker – were drafted into the NFL and a fourth – Alex Boone – just completed his eighth year in the league. Jones spent two seasons as Decker’s back-up before Decker was taken in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, No. 16 overall, by the Detroit
Jones- Arizona State, 6-5, 290, (U
5.32-5.), (S-1.9, 1.), 28 reps, 31" Arms– Nice initial
bust, Very tight hips. Heavy feet. He looked better pulling outside. He
can move backward maybe better than forward. Not the best feet. He is an
ORG. He looked better in the football drills than the track drills. He
looked like he belonged when he was moving backwards.
Has great frame and build for his position. Can play multiple positions on the offensive line.
Good athleticism and feet make him a good run blocker. REDSHIRT SOPHOMORE
(2016): Started the first seven games but his impressive start to the season was derailed by an injury midway through the year.
