1. OG Jonah Williams, Alabama (OT)
6-4, 302: Fiiiiiiiiiine, he really is going to end up at guard, even though he might just be the best tackle in this draft.
He’s a technician of a blocker with the feet to be tried out at left tackle, but he’s missing the raw bulk to be a franchise guy on the outside. Of course it’s nice to have the road graders in the interior, but strength isn’t a problem for him, and the athleticism makes up for the shortcomings.
While he’s versatile enough to play anywhere, give him a little time at one spot and he’ll master the position.
No, he’s never going to be a blaster of a blocker, and there’s a chance that he’s really good at almost every position on the line, and not amazing at any one of them, but you don’t work at left tackle on Nick Saban’s line for a few years without being able to handle the job.
Wherever he ends up playing he’ll be fantastic for the next decade.
