1) Troy Fautanu | 6'4 | 317 | OG/OT | Washington

10/14 - Oregon - Really impressed in this game. While he may have to move inside due to a lack of ideal length, he was very good to excellent at LT. He drew both Brandon Dorlus and Jordan Burch, NFL-caliber players. Outside of a couple times, Fautanu clearly won the match matchup. He displayed fluidity in his kick slide with the anchor to handle bull rushes. He was a mauler in the run game, able to move guys and turn them away from the ball.

11/11 - Utah - Had a great game, consistently hemmed his man up, displayed plus power and nastiness throughout the contest. 

 

2) Cooper Beebe | 6'4 | 330 | OG/OT | Kansas State

9/16 - Missouri - Beebe showed great versatility, lining up at LG and RT. He played with a wide, sturdy base, showed power. He was a reliable wall in pass pro, standing defenders up or riding them wide of the pocket. In the run game, he down-blocked very well, washed guys out. 

3) Christian Haynes | 6'3 | 310 | OG | Connecticut

4) Dominick Puni | 6'5 | 320 | OG/OT | Kansas

5) Brandon Coleman | 6'5 | 310 | OG | TCU

6) Layden Robinson | 6'4 | 320 | OG | Texas A&M

10/7 - Alabama - Drew some very tough matchups, but showed his chops aa number of times. He couldn't get much of a push in the run game, but was reliable to good in pass pro. 

7) Isaiah Adams | 6'5 | 315 | OG/RT | Illinois

9/8 - Kansas - Adams was impressive in this one. He showed off very good functional strength in the run game, moved his man off the ball with frequency. He lined up at LT for a few series, also looked the part there. While his run blocking stood out, he was more than dependable in pass pro. He played with a good degree of nastiness throughout. 

11/11 - Indiana - Adams lined up at RT, and he played very well there. He was a wall in pass pro, and really asserted himself in the run game with some powerful down blocks. 

8) Christian Mahogany | 6'3 | 318 | OG | Boston College

9) Zak Zinter | 6'6 | 320 | OG | Michigan

10/7 - Minnesota - Zinter had a strong game. He was a wall in pass pro, stout in head up run blocking, and was very good pulling out into space and finding his target.  

10) Sataoa Laumea | 6'4 | 312 | OG/OT | Utah

8/31 - Florida - Laumea lined up at RT and simply didn't look comfortable there. He wasn't fluid with a kick slide, nor did he display an adequate punch. He showed decent grappling strength at times, but wasn't dominant.  

11) LaDarius Henderson | 6'4 | 310 | OG/OT | Michigan

10/7 - Minnesota - Henderson was adequate to good from his LT spot. While he didn't always look real fluid in his play, he locked down his side in both pass pro and in the run game. His play showed a guy that can play at OT in a pinch, but would be very strong if moving back to OG.

12) Javion Cohen | 6'4 | 305 | OG | Miami

10/7 - Georgia Tech - Had a very solid outing, showing good play in the run game and pass pro. He displayed strength, kept his shoulders square, battled well in reliable fashion.

10/21 - Clemson - Had a very good game, considering the front he faced. He provided a good push in the run game at times, able to handle DTs 1:1. He was also reliable in pass pro. He looked like one of the nations top OGs. 

11/11 - Florida State - Miami ran behind Cohen many times with success. He played with very good functional strength, controlled his man well. 

13) Mason McCormick | 6'5 | 315 | OG | South Dakota State

14) Dylan McMahon | 6'3 | 295 | OG | North Carolina State

15) Trevor Keegan | 6'6 | 305 | OG | Michigan

11/7 - Minnesota - Keegan played with good functional strength, stood out mostly as a run blocker. He pulled well, showed he can be adequate to good once locking on to his man.
