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.

2018 OLs Group One.



#1 Brian 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.

CAREER NOTES: Four-year letterwinner played in 51 career games, including 38 starts (17 at center, 16 at left guard, five at right guard) . . . was voted a 2017 team captain . . . earned second-team All-Big Ten accolades three straight years (2015-17) . . . extremely durable lineman finished his career starting in 28 consecutive games, including all 13 games at center in 2017.

#2 Dave 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. 

2017: 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. Led Stanford to 656 total yards vs. Rice, seventh-most in school history. Led Stanford to 405 rushing yards vs. UCLA, fourth-most in school history. Started at right guard as Bryce Love set single-game school rushing record (301 yards) vs. Arizona State.

#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. 

#4 Alex 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.

HUMBOLDT STATE: (2017): Played in all 10 games ... Earned his GNAC record fourth Offensive Lineman of the Year Award ... A unanimous All-GNAC First Team selection ...

#5 Geron 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.

2016 SOPHOMORE SEASON: Talented junior offensive tackle who earned all-ACC honors in each of his first two seasons... has started 26-straight games since joining the program as a true freshman ... a starter in all 13 games in 2016 ... guided an offense that was one of the best in the country in 2016 ... team averaged over 40 points per game and over 500 yards of total offense.

#6 Will Clapp- LSU, 6-4, 314, 25 reps, (U 5.4-5.43), (S-1.88, 1.), 31 1/4"A" Arms – He just ran 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.

First team All-SEC at center in 2017 after earning the honor at guard in 2016 ... First LSU offensive lineman to be named first team All-SEC twice since Herman Johnson in 2007 and 2008 ... Started all 36 games that he appeared in during his LSU career (13 at center, 12 at left guard, 11 at right guard).

#7 Mason Cole- Michigan, 6-4, 305, (U 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. 

At Michigan: Four-year letterman. Three-time All-Big Ten honoree (second team, coaches and media - 2016-17; honorable mention - 2015). All-Big Ten selection by the Associated Press (second team offense). Has made 51 consecutive starts along the offensive line, started all 13 games at center in 2016 before moving back to left tackle in 2017, where he has started all 14 games. Made 25 straight games at left tackle prior to position switch to center in 2016. Became first true freshman in Michigan history to start a season opener on the offensive line vs. Appalachian. ate (Aug. 30, 2014). Accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

#8 Austin 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.

SENIOR (2017): Named to the Outland Trophy and Wuerffel Trophy preseason watch lists and received a nomination to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team … Earned preseason All-Mountain West first team honors from the conference, Athlon Sports, Phil Steele and College Sports Madness ... One of the top left tackles in the Mountain West and the leader of ‘The Union’ as a two-time all-conference performer ... Has started in 36 consecutive games.

#9 Tyrell 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.

2017: 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 ...

Oregon finished the year ranked 12th in FBS averaging 251.0 yards rushing per game ... Invited to play in 2018 Reese’s Senior Bowl.

#10 James 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 280. 

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 OC taken. 

He 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. 

#11 Jamil 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 Pick. 

He 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.

2017: Preseason CAA All-Conference team; STATS FCS Preseason All-American third team.
2016: All-CAA Third Team selection; Team Captain; Maine Offensive Lineman of the Year. started all 10 games he appeared in; helped lead an offensive line which tied for fourth in the CAA in sacks allowed (14). 2015: Started 10 games; helped lead an offensive line which ranked tied for fourth in sacks allowed (18), down 23 from a year ago; named to CAA All-Academic team; Maine Scholar-Athlete bronze medalist.

#12 Nick 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.

2017 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 tackle.

#13 Colby 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. 

2017: 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, 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 games.

#14 Des Harrison- West Georgia, 6-6, 290, (U 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. 

Moves 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.

Overview: 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 2012.

#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.

Overview: 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). 

2017 (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 WKU.

#16  Jamarco 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.

Notable: 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 Lions.

#17 Sam 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. 

OVERVIEW: 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.
