NFL Draft Offensive Tackle Rankings 2020: From The College Perspective

By

4. Tristan Wirfs, Iowa (OG)

Size: 6-5, 320

The Good: Another great Iowa offensive line tackle, he has the power, and he showed off the rest of the tools at the combine with a fantastic 4.85 40 with a 37″ vertical while looking terrific in the short drills. All of a sudden, he went from being a possible swing tackle or even a guard – and he still might be – to looking more the part of an NFL left tackle.

One of the best run blockers in the draft, he doesn’t need any work when it comes to shoving a guy out of the way for the ground game, and he’s been able to show off good enough feet in workouts to be fine in all phases.

The Not-So-Good: He’s not really a top-shelf pass protector and he might labor a bit on the left side. While his overall technique isn’t bad – he’s an Iowa offensive linemen – he could still use a little refinement. Even with his great showing at the combine, he’s still going to be seen as a right tackle right out of the gate.

NFL Draft College Perspective Thought: It’s going to be an interesting call to see what type of team takes him and to see what the overall plan is. Considering he’s got first round ability, do you take him over other tackles who’ll likely be a better fit on the left side? He’ll be a rock-solid starter for someone’s line, but where?
