Included in measurables are height, weight, age they turn this year and 40-yard-dash time.
1. LAREMY TUNSIL, Mississippi
Measurables: 6-5, 310, 21, DNR*
Bio: Three-year starter who played in 29 career games. Fractured his fibula in the 2014 Peach Bowl. Was suspended for seven games in 2015 for receiving impermissible benefits. Declared after his true junior season.
Consensus: Natural left tackle with plus feet and athleticism, which shows in pass protection and in the running game. Has a smooth, quick kick slide and covers lots of ground in pass protection. Patient blocker who can handle pass rushers one on one — did a nice job against Texas A&M star Myles Garrett during Oct. 24 showdown. Knee bender who is tough to turn the corner on because of his size and athleticism. Good technician who shows some potential as a run blocker; can jar defenders back and has some pop in his hands. Has more than enough athleticism to work to the second level as a run defender. Shows some nastiness. Has the tools to be a very good NFL left tackle.
*Did not run 40 before the draft.
2. RONNIE STANLEY, Notre Dame
Measurables: 6-6, 312, 22, 5.20
Bio: Two-year starter who played in 28 career games. Started all 13 games at left tackle in 2015, when he recorded 16 knockdown blocks and yielded a team-low one sack. Started 13 games at right tackle in 2014. Declared after true junior season.
Consensus: Super athletic left tackle prospect with really good feet and a natural feel for pass protection. Outstanding length (35 5/8 -inch arms) and big hands (10 5/8 inches). Anchors and mirrors well in pass protection. Is a tough guy to turn the corner on because of his superb combination of size, athleticism and pass-pro technique. Does a nice job using his hands in pass protection. Handled Clemson’s Shaq Lawson very well when they met on Oct. 3. Athletic enough to get to be effective on screens and wall off linebackers at the second level on running plays. Isn’t a dominating run blocker — needs to add strength — but generates movement at the point of attack and generally plays to the whistle and gets the job done. Has the look of a potential Pro Bowl left tackle at the NFL level.
3. JACK CONKLIN, Michigan State
Measurables: 6-6, 308, 22, 5.00
Bio: Three-year starter at left tackle who played in 39 career games. Started at Michigan State as a preferred walk-on and quickly won a scholarship. Declared after his redshirt junior season.
Consensus: Has plenty of experience; made 38 career starts. Answered some questions about his athleticism by testing out as one of the draft’s fastest linemen. Has very good arm length (35 inches). Is a classic Big Ten lineman; a competitive tough guy who plays to the whistle and generates movement on down blocks. Enjoys putting guys in the dirt. Flashes solid initial burst and foot quickness off the snap as a run blocker but sometimes plays too high and lets defenders into his body. Has only decent feet and gets in trouble when he oversets in pass pro. Could struggle with speed rushers but probably has the footwork, balance and body control to hold up at right tackle, at worst. Durable.
4. TAYLOR DECKER, Ohio State
Measurables: 6-7, 310, 22, 5.23
Bio: Three-year starter at left tackle who played in 54 career games. Had offers from multiple midmajors as a college basketball prospect.
Consensus: Started 42 career games. Has some athleticism, because of his basketball background, but is only a decent athlete overall. Has a lean, strong frame. Plays with some nastiness. Has strong hands to lock on and finish defenders. Has the anchor strength to handle the bull rush. Gets in trouble when he doesn’t play low enough. Doesn’t always fire out of his stance as a run blocker to create movement at the point of attack — does more catching as a run blocker than he should. Average foot quickness; might not have the feet to stay at tackle and might require a move to guard. Occasionally has trouble working to the second level against quick linebackers.
5. JASON SPRIGGS, Indiana
Measurables: 6-6, 301, 22, 4.94
Bio: Four-year starter who played in 48 career games. Recorded 79 knockdowns in a team-high 1,074 snaps in 2015. Started as a true freshman.
Consensus: Combine warrior who killed it while showing off his athleticism; posted great marks in the 40, bench press (31 reps), broad jump (115 inches) and 20-yard shuttle (4.44). Experienced player who is fairly light on his feet in pass protection; has a good pass set when he doesn’t play too high. Also is effective at getting out in the open field and leading the way. Doesn’t dominate on down blocks or double teams. Does some catching as a run blocker; doesn’t consistently drive defenders off the ball. Needs to gain strength, but his nice combination of athleticism and size should get him drafted fairly early in a pass-first league.
Others to watch: Le’Raven Clark, Texas Tech; Shon Coleman, Auburn; Jerald Hawkins, Louisiana State; Germain Idefi, Texas A&M; Alex Lewis, Nebraska.
