Round 7 - Jovaughn Gwyn, Cooper Hodges, Andrew Vorhees, Nick Broeker, Spencer Anderson

1) 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. 

2) Donovan Jackson | 6'4 | 300 | OG | Ohio State

9/2 - Indiana - Looked very solid with his pass protection, hemmed up his man well. He wasn't dominant in the run game, but was able to occupy his man long enough for some lanes to be found. 

9/23 - Notre Dame - Was taken to the task a couple times, but had far more good blocks than not. He showed off some good anchor strength and laterally mobility in both the run game and pass pro. 

3) LaDarius Henderson | 6'5 | 310 | OG/OT | Michigan

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

5) Isaiah Adams | 6'5 | 315 | OG | 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. 

6) Tanor Bortolini | 6'4 | 310 | OG/C | Wisconsin

9/9 - Washington State - Bortolini manned the pivot in this one, and he looked very adept if not good doing so. He displayed plus strength in pass pro and in the run game. As a run blockier, he routinely turned bodies off the ball, creating some nice lanes for interior runs.

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

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

9) Tate Ratledge | 6'6 | 310 | OG | Georgia

9/16 - South Carolina - Ratledge looked very good today. He played with a wide base with plenty of strength to match. He was a wall in pass pro, moved bodies in the run game. 

10) Troy Fautanu | 6'4 | 305 | OG/OT | Washington

11) Christian Mahogany | 6'3 | 335 | OG | Boston College

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

13) Sataoa Laumea | 6'4 | 312 | OG | 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.  

14) Clark Barrington | 6'6 | 302 | OG/C | Baylor

15) Matthew Jones | 6'4 | 310 | OG | Ohio State

9/2 - Indiana - Looked very meh today, only had a couple good blocks worth noting. He looks as if he'll struggle against quick-twitch defenders who'll be able to cross his face. 

9/23 - Notre Dame - Was neither good or bad. He generally hemmed his man up initially, but did nothing on the side of dominance. His RBs did have some success running the ball, so credit must be given on a few of those runs. 

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

17) Walter Parks | 6'5 | 315 | OG | Clemson

9/2 - Duke - Parks had a decent game. While he did get beat on some snaps, he looked the part on others, created some run lanes at times. 

18) Connor Colby | 6'6 | 311 | OG | Iowa

9/9 - Iowa State - Colby held down his responsibilities well for the most part. While he didn't flash in any one regard, he seldom looked like a liability.
