They might not all show up and workout, but these are the five best offensive tackle prospects going into the 2018 NFL Combine.
Daily Five: Offensive Tackle Rankings Before The NFL Combine
From the college perspective, how good are these guys? Go ahead and breakdown and analyze every block, every quirk, and every positive and negative on all of the top prospects going into the 2018 NFL Combine – this isn’t that hard.
Just simplify it – who can play football well enough to make an impact at the next level? At least at the moment, here are your five best offensive tackles.
5. Kolton Miller, UCLA
Why Kolton Miller Is Here On The List: The 6-8, 310-pounder has the ideal left tackle size – even if he’s a tad bit light – with decent quickness and great pass protection skills. He might not be the greatest athlete, but he manages to fight and battle to get the job done.
Josh Rosen’s left tackle, he’s consistent and cagey – he seems to know all the little tricks to overcome his deficiencies.
Is he an NFL left tackle? He’s likely going to be right tackle early on – and stay there. He’s missing the elite athleticism, and he won’t blast away for the ground game, but he’ll be a longtime starter.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Quickness, quickness, quickness. How fluid is he? How smooth is he? The height, length and frame will work, but he needs to prove he’s not an RTO (Right Tackle Only).
Bottom Line: No, he’ll never be anyone’s anchor for a line, but he’ll be good enough to start and be solid. He’ll need more power around him, but he’ll be functional enough to snap up after the top 50.
