Offensive Guards

The were 19 OGs selected in the 2021 draft, as follows:

 

Round 1 - 3

Round 2 - 1

Round 3 - 2

Round 4 - 1

Round 5 - 2

Round 6 - 6

Round 7 - 4

 

The 2022 OG draft class did have a lot of selections compared to the average draw at the position, but it certainly wasn't deep with talent. It was a weird draft overall, as we saw some reaches early, with other guys somehow falling rounds below their worth. As of right now, I don't see more than half a dozen of these guys doing anything meaningful early on. 

The 2023 OG draft class could be better as a whole, but may not be overly impressive either. There are a few returning starters that should shine once again, but it'll have to be new names and faces that emerge in order for the offering to be good, even respectable.
