2014 NFL Draft: OL Big Boards

Al Messerschmidt

With the Rams experience O-line troubles, it's a good time to take stock of what the college level has shaping up for the 2014 NFL Draft after five weeks of their play.

ICYMI, I rolled out my first four offensive position big boards for the 2014 NFL Draft in the preseason:

As I get more stuff together for next April, you'll want to bookmark the TST 2014 NFL Draft Hub for all the content throughout the year relating to the draft. And of course, make sure you've CTRL+D'd Mocking the Draft in your sports links.

Today, we're heading to the offensive line. Let's go through the three positional big boards and then put up a composite O-line big board.

For reference, here's Mocking the Draft's top 100 big board. From there, you can get to their updated position boards.

First up, the tackles.

26 Austin Wentworth Fresno St. RS Sr. LT
27 Austin Shepherd Alabama RS Jr. RT
28 Ryker Mathews BYU RS Soph. LT
29 Brandon Scherff Iowa RS Jr. LT
30 Jake Fisher Oregon Jr. RT

- I'm turning a fan of Erving to this point. He's a DT turned offensive tackle, and the aggression shows.

- On the other hand, Cyrus Kouandjio is falling for me. Technique's lacking. Size and aggressiveness is there...but he's slow. Might have to bulk up to RT for this level.

- I still love Morgan Moses. I think he's a starting NFL RT.

- Watch out for Spencer Drango. Great hands, really clean.

- My sleeper? Rob Havenstein.

28 Sedrick Flowers Texas RS Soph. LG
29 Will Simmons East Carolina RS Sr. RG
30 Brey Cook Arkansas Jr. RG

- Art Briles is putting together a serious program at Baylor. He's shown that it wasn't just RGIII, who he brought in and developed. I guarantee every NFL scouting crew is paying attention to what's happening in Waco.

- Arie Kouandjio could have a longer NFL career than his brother. Just saying.

- I like Junior Salt. He's still learning the position as a converted DT, but from the Utah State game to last night's Utah-UCLA contest, I saw a noticeable improvement. (note: I gave in to the loving arms of my bed after the Eric Kendricks INT at the end of the 3rd).

- Landon Turner is a young talented offensive lineman at UNC, a program that has a way of wasting its talents.

- Depending on who replaces Mack Brown and how the staff shakes out, Sedrick Flowers could be legit.

# Name School Year
1 Hroniss Grasu Oregon RS Jr.
2 Travis Swanson Arkansas RS Sr.
3 Tyler Larsen Utah St. Sr.
4 Jake Brendel UCLA RS Soph.
5 Russell Bodine UNC RS Jr.
6 Brandon Vitabile Northwestern RS Jr.
7 James Stone Tennessee Sr.
8 Gabe Ikard Oklahoma RS Sr.
9 Reese Dismukes Auburn Jr.
10 Zac Kerin Toledo RS Sr.

- Out of the three boards, this one has the biggest drop after the top prospect. It's Grasu and a crew for me.

- I put this board together before last night's UCLA-Utah game. If I had done it after, I might move Brendel up to the three spot.

- Sell on Gabe Ikard all day. His size hasn't been a huge issue in the past. It is this year. I'm looking forward to the Red River Shootout to see him face up against Malcom Browm (the DT, not the RB).

- Centers are hard prospects to evaluate, bruh...

25 Spencer Drango
Baylor RS Soph. LT

- I could see Grasu higher than this, only because the drop off is so high. If you want a center and he's gone, you wait to round 3. Period.

- I think Yankey might be the guy who benefits from another year in school more than any junior on this list. But who knows. Maybe the coaching staff at Stanford cleans up his feet over the season and he's a top 16 pick. But if not, he could be with another year in Palo Alto.

- Just stick to some combo of Alabama-Tennessee-Wisconsin-Baylor and you'll be fine.

Bookmark it, and keep it hot. You can use this to help organize your Saturdays for the college threads throughout the year. And you know I'll take a late call for Turf Show Radio on college ball...

Holler.
