Draft Preview: Offensive Tackles



Laremy Tunsil
6-5, 310, Ole Miss

Most believe Tunsil has what it takes to be drafted No.1 overall. Proved his worth after serving seven-game suspension during 2015 season. A three-year starter for the Rebels at left tackle, Tunsil has all the tools to be an elite left tackle in the NFL.

Ronnie Stanley
6-6, 312, Notre Dame

Made a surprising decision to return to Notre Dame for his senior season, but cemented his place as a first-round prospect in 2015. Three-year starter ranks right behind Tunsil in the eyes of most evaluators.

Jack Conklin
6-6, 308, Michigan State

The Spartans' dependable three-year starter at left tackle began his college career as a walk-on and entered the NFL Draft with a first-round projection. Widely respected for his toughness and physicality.

Taylor Decker
6-7, 310, Ohio State

Another powerful three-year starter, Decker opted to return for his senior year and lead the Buckeyes' line. Earned consensus All-American honors in 2015 and likely will be a first-round pick. Played left tackle in college, but some see him as a right tackle at the next level.

Germain Ifedi
6-6, 324, Texas A&M

A three-year starter who moved from guard to right tackle, Ifedi has the makeup of an NFL offensive lineman. Some consider him a guard prospect with the flexibility to play tackle.

Jason Spriggs
6-6, 301, Indiana

Mayock lists Spriggs and Ifedi as tied for his fifth spot. A rarely seen four-year starter, Spriggs is an impressive athlete – and former tight end – who could come off the board late in Round One. Must prove he can handle the powerful defensive linemen he'll see at the next level.
