2. Andrew Thomas, Georgia 6-5, 320 (Top ten overall)
Why He’s Here On The List: A terrific part of a great Georgia line for the last few seasons, he has the right body type, the right skills, and the right mentality as a lead blocker for an NFL line. He’ll fight for a block, is used to dealing with high-end SEC-caliber pass rushers – and was fine – and there’s an outside shot that he’s the top tackle off the board.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Just how much will the scouts care about his body type? He doesn’t look like a bulked up tight end, but that’s okay – he moves well enough for his size. Watch him in the mirror drills. As long as those are flawless, all will be fine.
Bottom Line: He’s not the perfect pro tackle prospect, but he’s a good, tough player who should grow into a star after taking his lumps for a year. Live through the potential pass protection issues out of the box until he gets used to his role as an anchor of a left tackle, but there isn’t anything that can’t be fixed.
