2020 NFL Draft Offensive Tackle Rankings Top Five

5. Mekhi Becton, Louisville

Size: 6-7, 364

The Good: HUGE. He’s a gigantic human being who ran a 5.1 40. When he’s able to keep his weight in check, he carries it all well on his frame. A blaster of a blocker, forget about it when he’s able to lock on and drive. Get him on the move at all, and he’ll bury his man.

The pass protection skills are just okay, but half the battle is simply getting around him. With his length and bulk, he’s just one punch and pop away from owning the play – it’s going to take a blazer to get by and get to the quarterback.

The Not-So-Good: He moves okay for a guy his size, but he’s not going to bring the feet or the quickness to be a superstar in pass protection against the elite blazers around the edge. There’s the other big question mark about keeping his weight from ballooning up. At 364 he’s fine, but if that moves up at all – he was at 390ish not all that long ago – there’s a problem.

NFL Draft College Perspective Thought: Everyone will love him thanks to his size and upside, but he was the best player on the Louisville line that was absolutely awful. He’ll likely live on the right side of the line for the bulk of his career, but his skill set is good enough to hope for good run on the left side in a power attack.
