2019 NFL Draft Position Rankings:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | NT | 3-4 OLB | 3-4 DE | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K | P

  1. Beau Benzschawel, G, Wisconsin
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 321.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    2/15/18: Benzschawel blocked well for the Badgers in 2017 while also dealing with a leg injury that cost him some time. He is a forceful run blocker who was reliable in pass protection. In 2016, Benzschawel turned in an impressive sophomore season, earning Second-Team All-Big Ten honors. He is a tough run blocker at the point of attack with size. Improving his pass protection for the NFL would help his draft stock. As a freshman in 2015, Benzschawel started half the games at right tackle and started a few at right guard.






  2. Alex Bars, G/OT, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 312.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.29.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

    2/15/18: Bars has experience starting at right tackle for the Fighting Irish, but he is a better fit on the inside at guard in the NFL. It will be interesting to see if Bars takes over at left guard or left tackle as a replacement for Quenton Nelson or Mike McGlinchey. Bars played well as the starting right guard for Notre Dame in 2017, opening a lot of holes for the team's potent rushing offense. Bars has some size and strength at the point of attack.


  3. Ross Pierschbacher*, G/C, Alabama
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 303.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

    2/15/18: Pierschbacher started at left guard and blocked well for Alabama in 2017. He is a tough run blocker who opened a lot of holes for Bo Scarbrough, Damien Harris, Josh Jacobs and Jalen Hurts in 2016. Pierschbacher has played left guard and center for the Crimson Tide. He is a plus run blocker and should continue to improve as a pass protector. With Bradley Bozeman moving on to the NFL, Pierschbacher will probably move to center as a senior.


  4. Lester Cotton, G, Alabama
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 319.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.27.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

    2/15/18: Cotton has blocked well for Alabama. He is tough in the ground game, and his run blocking is ahead of his pass protection. If he can improve his pass protection, he could rise. Cotton was in and out of the starting lineup as a sophomore. He also spent time at left guard and right guard for the Crimson Tide. In the games he didn't start, Cotton rotated into the game. As a freshman, he was a backup at tackle. Cotton needs to improve his pass protection, but he has athletic upside to develop if he can lock down a starting spot.




  5. Michael Jordan*, G, Ohio State
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 310.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.15.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

  6. Nate Herbig*, G, Stanford
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 350.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.45.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

  7. Ben Powers, G, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 310.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

  8. Garrett McGhin, G, East Carolina
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 319.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.50.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.



  9. Sean Krepsz, G/C, Nevada

    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    Height: 6-4. Weight: 300.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.15.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.
