2023 NFL Draft: Top Offensive Linemen Prospects

6.73 (OT) - PETER SKORONSKI, Northwestern

Height: 6’4”. Weight: 313 lbs.
Arm: 32 1/4”. Hand: 10”.

Prospect Grade: 6.73
Next Gen Stats: 89

Production Score: 89
Athleticism Score: 84
Total Score: 89 

40-Yd Dash: 5.16 sec || 10-Yd Split: 1.75 sec || Vert. Jump: 34.5” || Broad Jump: 9’7” || 3-Cone Drill: 7.8 || 20-Yd Shuttle: || Bench Press: 30 reps

Player Bio: Skoronski received high grades as a four-star and top-five center prospect nationally while attending Maine South High School in Illinois. In 2020, when Rashawn Slater, the star left tackle for the Wildcats, opted out of the season, Skoronski, a true freshman, stepped up to fill the position for all nine games and was recognized with second-team All-Big Ten Conference honors. With a family legacy in football, as his grandfather was former Green Bay Packers team captain Bob Skoronski, he continued to excel and was also named a second-team pick in 2021, starting all 12 games as a left tackle. Skoronski continued his impressive performance in 2022, earning the title of the league’s top offensive lineman and being named a first-team all-conference selection, while starting in all 12 games as the left tackle.

Overview: Although Skoronski excelled as a left tackle in college, his body type and skill set suggest that his best position in the pros would be at guard. He possesses a broad upper and lower body, but his short arms may limit his effectiveness against stab-and-charge bull rushers and edge speed. However, Skoronski’s run-blocking skills are exceptional, and he can thrive in any run-blocking scheme. A move inside to guard would mitigate his issues with length and allow him to fully showcase his technique, feel, and power as a run blocker. With some improvement in his pass protection, Skoronski has the potential to become an instant starter and a top-flight guard in the NFL.


  • Demonstrates an explosive kick-slide into diagonal sets and uses proactive hands to attack first.
  • Possesses excellent footwork and hand usage to counter and collect twists.
  • Arches his back and unlocks his hips to access his rush anchor when necessary.
  • Comes off the snap with low pads and explosive lift into contact, ensuring his base stays wide and balanced throughout the rep.
  • Has a clear understanding of positioning and angles at the point of attack and excels at textbook leg drive on double teams and kick-out blocks.
  • Skilled at washing down run defenders looking to shoot gaps and races out of stance to get into position for reach-block success.


  • Tends to throw his punch a bit late and from outside angles, which can leave him vulnerable to pass-rush moves.
  • Needs to work on altering his pass sets and hand attacks to become less predictable.
  • When facing long-arm rush moves, he can struggle and get driven into the pocket.
  • Adjustments to second-level movements are average.
  • Can be beaten by a side-stepping defender at the point of attack.

6.44 (OT) - BRODERICK JONES, Georgia

Height: 6’5”. Weight: 311 lbs.
Arm: 34 3/4”. Hand: 10 5/8”.

Prospect Grade: 6.44
Next Gen Stats: 85

Production Score: 83
Athleticism Score: 85
Total Score: 85 

40-Yd Dash: 4.97 sec || 10-Yd Split: 1.74 sec || Vert. Jump: 30” || Broad Jump: 9′ 0” || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: || Bench Press:

Player Bio: After redshirting his first year with the Bulldogs and playing only two games as a reserve, Jones spent the 2021 season behind Jamaree Salyer as left tackle for the first 11 games. However, he rose to the occasion and started at left tackle for the final four games, contributing to Georgia’s national championship victory and earning recognition on the SEC All-Freshman Team. In 2022, he demonstrated his consistency and talent by starting all 15 games at left tackle and playing an instrumental role in securing back-to-back titles for Georgia.

Overview: Jones is an incredibly athletic tackle prospect who possesses both the size and length to become a successful starter on the left side of the line. However, both his frame and technique are still in the developmental phase, and he can appear disjointed when entering into block fits. To fully utilize his length in pass protection, Jones needs to work on improving his punch accuracy and timing. That being said, he excels in working into space and landing crucial blocks to bolster the running game. His nimble feet allow him to mirror or recover against incoming rushes. While Jones is not yet a finished product, his physical and athletic abilities suggest that he has the potential to become a dependable, long-term starter.

Strengths: This prospect brings premium athletic qualities to the table, having previously played high school basketball. He drives his hands into defenders using an upward strike and can effectively rip through the opponent’s pads with his outside hand to move them. He is capable of making all the necessary blocks for both zone and power plays. With impressive body control, he can adjust to moving targets on the field. While his punch timing could use some improvement, he has the length required to work on it. Additionally, he quickly recognizes twist attempts by the defense. His loose hips and quick feet enable him to recover quickly and efficiently.

Weaknesses: Despite being a left tackle starter for less than two full seasons, this prospect shows potential for growth. However, there are some areas for improvement, including keeping his chin tucked and back flat during pass protection. His punch comes from outside angles, and he struggles to stick the rusher quickly. When challenged by a power rush, he gives up early ground. He also needs to work on fitting up run blocks in one fluid motion. As a professional player, he will need to improve his play strength. Finally, he tends to duck his head, which causes him to lose sight of his first contact.

6.41 (C) - JOHN MICHAEL SCHMITZ, Minnesota

Height: 6′ 3 1/2”. Weight: 301 lbs.
Arm: 32 5/8”. Hand: 9 1/2”.

Prospect Grade: 6.41
Next Gen Stats: 84

Production Score: 80
Athleticism Score: 73
Total Score: 84 

40-Yd Dash: 5.35 sec || 10-Yd Split: 1.85 sec || Vert. Jump: 29.5” || Broad Jump: 8′ 8” || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: 4.56 sec || Bench Press: 26 reps

Player Bio: Schmitz, originally a three-star recruit and one of the top-10 center prospects in the nation, was recruited by Minnesota from Homewood-Flossmoor High School in Illinois. During his redshirt freshman year, he played in 13 games as a reserve. The following year, he started four of the 13 games he played at center. In 2020, Schmitz started six games, and his performance earned him honorable mention All-Big Ten honors from league coaches. He continued to excel in 2021, starting all 13 games and earning second-team All-Big Ten Conference recognition. Schmitz returned for his sixth season in 2022, starting in 12 games and receiving first-team Associated Press All-American and all-conference honors. Although he opted out of the team’s bowl game, he was named a second-team Academic All-American that same year.

Overview: Schmitz, a center known for his consistency in zone schemes and decent size, is well-versed in all aspects of the running game. He consistently employs proper footwork and positioning to gain early leverage and finishes blocks at a high rate. Schmitz’s football intelligence is a major asset as he is responsible for making the calls for his team’s offense. While his drive power is average, he can sometimes struggle to reach second-level targets. Schmitz’s lack of length can lead to occasional issues in pass protection, but his overall technique and teamwork in the running game make him a strong candidate for plug-and-play opportunities at the professional level.

Strengths: Schmitz is responsible for making all the calls at the line of scrimmage, showcasing his leadership and football IQ. He possesses lateral quickness that allows him to make reach blocks in outside zone schemes. Schmitz demonstrates patience in finding lateral positioning before engaging with defenders, enabling him to make successful blocks. He uses a firm outside hand to capture defenders’ edges, displaying excellent technique. Schmitz plays with exceptional teamwork, consistently executing his role within the offensive scheme. He finishes blocks with consistency and maintains proper balance to handle pass and receive twists. Schmitz is also able to quickly drop anchor by unlocking his hips and ankles when necessary.

Weaknesses: Schmitz struggles with adjusting to moving targets and needs improvement in timing when working up to his second block. His arm length is below average, which can be a disadvantage in certain situations. Schmitz can become overextended with aggressive pass-setting slides, leaving him vulnerable to counter-moves from defenders. When his edge is attacked, Schmitz has a tendency to become leaky, which can lead to difficulty in pass protection.

6.40 (OT) - DARNELL WRIGHT, Tennessee

Height: 6′ 5”. Weight: 333 lbs.
Arm: 33 3/4”. Hand: 9”.

Prospect Grade: 6.40
Next Gen Stats: 84

Production Score: 78
Athleticism Score: 86
Total Score: 84 

40-Yd Dash: 5.01 sec || 10-Yd Split: 1.81 sec || Vert. Jump: 29” || Broad Jump: 9‘ 6” || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle:  || Bench Press:

Player Bio: In 2019, Wright stood out as a top-10 overall recruit and received the first-team USA Today All-American honor during his senior year at Huntington High school in West Virginia. He began his collegiate career by making it to the SEC All-Freshman Team in 2019, featuring in 11 games and starting in seven of them. During his sophomore year, he was a regular starter in nine out of ten games, mainly playing at right tackle. In 2021, Wright transitioned to the left tackle position and started all 13 games. However, he returned to the right side for his senior year, where he had an outstanding season, starting in all 13 games and earning the first-team All-SEC honors.

Overview: Wright is a right tackle prospect whose size and strength helped him overcome his limited athleticism and inconsistent technique during his time in college. His performance on tape can be a bit unpredictable, with occasional poor block finishes followed by impressive pancakes. However, in 2022, he demonstrated much better body control and footwork. With some protection help, Wright could remain at right tackle at the next level. While he often played as a positional blocker during his time at Tennessee, he excels as a drive blocker when allowed to fire out. While he may have some inconsistent outings, Wright has the potential to develop into a reliable starting tackle and could even transition to an interior position if necessary.

Strengths: This prospect is a big-bodied tackle who carries his weight well, making him a formidable force in the trenches. He displays bulldozer-like qualities when executing double teams and combo blocks, effectively moving defenders out of the way. Even when matched up one-on-one, he is able to hold his ground through power swaps. His powerful push has the ability to jolt linebackers out of position. Additionally, he demonstrates adequate footwork to slide and catch inside movement, while also utilizing his length for forceful redirection in protection. In 2022, his footwork appeared much calmer, improving his overall technique. He consistently stops speed-to-power attempts by opposing defenders.

Weaknesses: This prospect struggles to get much bend in his two-point stance, making it difficult for him to gain leverage at the point of attack. He tends to rely more on bear-hugging than utilizing technique when engaging defenders. He displays below-average hand resets and finishing ability as a run blocker. In pass protection, he may require a shallow pocket to hold up against opposing rushers. He tends to be more of a catcher than a puncher, lacking the aggressiveness to initiate contact. Additionally, he appears confused when faced with twist stunts from the defense.

6.39 (OT) - PARIS JOHNSON JR., Ohio State

Height: 6’6”. Weight: 313 lbs.
Arm: 36 1/8”. Hand: 9 1/2”.

Prospect Grade: 6.39
Next Gen Stats: 82

Production Score: 84
Athleticism Score: 76
Total Score: 82 

40-Yd Dash:  || 10-Yd Split:  || Vert. Jump: || Broad Jump: 9′ 2” || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: || Bench Press: 29 reps

Player Bio: After being named the Anthony Munoz Offensive Lineman of the Year at Princeton High School in Cincinnati, this top-10 overall recruit received interest from multiple schools, but Ohio State successfully retained him. He began his college career as a reserve, appearing in five games during his true freshman season, including the national championship game against Alabama. During his sophomore year, he started all 13 games at right guard and was recognized with second-team All-Big Ten honors. In 2022, he moved to left tackle and performed well in his 13 starts, earning second-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-Big Ten honors.

Overview: This long and athletic tackle has the potential to become a long-term starter on the left side but still requires additional technique work. Johnson is still in the process of filling out his frame and should work on getting stronger. He excels more as a move blocker than a man blocker, but with further coaching, he can improve in that area. He displays loose and quick movements in pass protection, but he will need to add core strength and improve his inside hand placement to prevent edge defenders from bypassing his anchor. Despite his advantageous athletic tools and position versatility, Johnson may face some challenges early on before he fully settles in.


  • Has the versatility to play both guard and tackle positions.
  • Displays rhythmic diagonal slides, and they shuffle their feet to ride rushers around the arc.
  • Uses his inside hand to thump and gather counter moves effectively.
  • Athletic talent allows him to make recoveries at various angles.
  • When seeking back side cut-off angles, opens his hips and accelerates to achieve the necessary position.
  • Fluid and possesses an accurate radar when executing pull blocks.
  • Has decent timing and consistency when working to a linebacker on combo blocks, there is room for improvement.


  • Lacks pop on contact.
  • Ability to secure the first block on combo blocks is below average.
  • When executing run blocks, bends at the waist and lacks ideal leverage.
  • Has a wide-hand hitch in his pass punch, which is not ideal.
  • Possesses average body control, but struggles to maintain it through rush contact.
  • Struggles with power displacing his anchor.
  • Forward lean leaves him vulnerable to spin moves.

6.39 (OT) - MATTHEW BERGERON, Syracuse

Height: 6′ 5”. Weight: 318 lbs.
Arm: 33 3/4”. Hand: 9 1/2”.

Prospect Grade: 6.39
Next Gen Stats: 77

Production Score: 74
Athleticism Score: 76
Total Score: 77 

40-Yd Dash:  || 10-Yd Split:  || Vert. Jump: 30.5” || Broad Jump: 8′ 7” || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: || Bench Press:

Player Bio: Bergeron, originally from Quebec, joined Syracuse in 2019 and quickly made an impact by starting five of 12 appearances at right tackle. He achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first freshman in nearly two decades to start outside for the Orange. In 2020, he started all 11 games, starting at both right and left tackle positions. In the following year, Bergeron started all 12 games at left tackle, earning an honorable mention All-ACC notice. He continued to excel in his senior year, starting in 11 games at left tackle, which earned him a second-team all-conference recognition voted by league coaches. Although he chose to opt out of the team’s bowl game, Bergeron’s performance throughout his college career speaks for itself.

Overview: Bergeron, a college tackle, has the potential to excel as an inside guard due to his evenly proportioned and compact frame, which allows him to wear his weight well. He has a dynamic run-blocking ability, showing excellence in all three aspects of positioning, sustaining, and finishing. Bergeron is capable of climbing and tagging second-level linebackers as well as creating run lanes at the point of attack with his strong leg drive. Although he possesses the athleticism required to play tackle, his inconsistent anchor and hand placement may raise concerns among evaluators. However, while these protection issues are potentially correctable, Bergeron’s Pro Bowl-caliber run-blocking skills, which are scheme-versatile, may prompt a team to move him inside sooner rather than later.

Strengths: Having starting experience at both tackle positions, this player shows a strong will to dominate his opponents. His run-blocking technique is exceptional in all aspects. He positions himself with his head up and hips unlocked to fit into his target, while using rapid-fire foot chop to kick or cave his block from a leveraged position. Additionally, he has improved his positioning through the sustain phase of the block. The player’s body control and ability to locate and block second-level linebackers are remarkable. He has quick initial slide steps to handle speed rushers, and his hips can open quickly to ride the rusher up the arc. Furthermore, he maintains a quality hand latch to stay connected with rushers.

Weaknesses: The player’s hand placement during pass protection is a concern, and his footwork to get into pass sets is inconsistent. Furthermore, his punch can swing wide, causing his chest to open up, and he often gives too much ground to bull-rushers. His punch tends to land high and wide, which limits his natural core and anchor strength. As a run blocker, he needs to be mindful of overshooting lateral landmarks.

6.38 (G) - O' CYRUS TORRENCE, Florida

Height: 6′ 5”. Weight: 330 lbs.
Arm: 33 7/8”. Hand: 11 1/4”.

Prospect Grade: 6.38
Next Gen Stats: 80

Production Score: 82
Athleticism Score: 63
Total Score: 80 

40-Yd Dash: 5.31 seconds || 10-Yd Split: 1.84 seconds || Vert. Jump: 23.5” || Broad Jump: 8′ 5” || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: 4.81 seconds || Bench Press: 23 reps

Player Bio: Torrence, a towering figure, received recognition for his impressive performances at St. Helena Central High School in Louisiana, earning all-district and all-state honors before joining the University of Louisiana to play for the Ragin’ Cajuns. He made an immediate impact, starting 13 out of 14 games at left guard in his freshman year. As a sophomore, Torrence transitioned to right guard and started all 11 games, earning second-team All-Sun Belt Conference accolades. He continued his ascent, earning first-team All-SBC honors during his junior year despite missing two games due to injury. In 2022, Torrence followed his former coach Billy Napier to Florida, where he shone as a right guard, earning first-team Associated Press All-American honors and first-team All-SEC recognition after starting in 11 games. Remarkably, he never gave up a single sack throughout his entire college career, even opting out of the Las Vegas Bowl to maintain his unblemished record.

Overview: Torrence is a guard prospect with a wide frame, and while he may have some physical limitations, his strong instincts and ability to use his size to his advantage help to balance these out. He doesn’t have the most natural bend and tends to rely on engulfing and pushing rather than leveraging and driving when run blocking, but he is effective at neutralizing his opponents. Torrence uses his hands effectively to jab and maintain a feel for the rush, but he may struggle with quick interior rushers who have well-developed counters, as his limited foot quickness could leave him vulnerable without support. He is best suited for downhill offenses that prioritize size over athleticism, and projects as a future starter at the position.

Strengths: With a very broad chest and waist, this player’s wide build creates an obstacle for interior pass rushers to navigate. He employs independent hand usage to maintain balance during pass protection, and is quick to identify twists and adjust his assignments accordingly. This player did not receive any penalties throughout the 2022 season, according to PFF. He has adequate contact strength and the ability to neutralize an opponent’s power, and his size helps to generate movement as a drive blocker. This player was able to hold his own in matchups against a strong opponent, such as Georgia’s Jalen Carter. Furthermore, he has above-average endurance and is able to sustain his blocks.

Weaknesses: This player may be somewhat indecisive when faced with pressure looks, and has difficulty effectively mirroring athletic rushers. Overextension in pass sets may leave him vulnerable to counters, and he is unable to bend and create proper leverage into contact. On the second level, this player tends to be heavy-legged and may lunge. Additionally, his production on double-team blocks is very average.

6.36 (G) - CODY MAUCH, North Dakota State

Height: 6′ 5”. Weight: 302 lbs.
Arm: 32 3/8”. Hand: 9 3/4”.

Prospect Grade: 6.36
Next Gen Stats: 83

Production Score: 77
Athleticism Score: 83
Total Score: 83 

40-Yd Dash: 5.08 seconds || 10-Yd Split: 1.79 seconds || Vert. Jump: 29” || Broad Jump: 9′ 0” || 3-Cone Drill: 7.33 seconds || 20-Yd Shuttle: 4.55 seconds || Bench Press: 29 reps

Player Bio: Mauch had a modest start playing nine-man football in high school, but he quickly made a name for himself by setting the record for career touchdowns and sacks at Hankinson High School in North Dakota. He began his college football career as a walk-on tight end at North Dakota State University (NDSU) but eventually moved to the offensive line, putting on 40 pounds in the process. In 2018, he saw action in six games as a backup and played in all 16 games the following year as a reserve, helping NDSU secure their third consecutive FCS title. During the team’s NCAA semifinal win over Montana State, Mauch caught a two-point conversion. In the fall of 2020, he played as a reserve in the team’s only game but worked his way into the starting lineup for the spring season. He started two games at right tackle and seven at left tackle, earning second-team All-Missouri Valley Football Conference honors. In 2021, Mauch started all 15 games at left tackle and was named a second-team Associated Press All-American and a first-team all-conference selection as NDSU once again captured the FCS title. In 2022, he was recognized as a first-team All-American by the AP and MVFC coaches after starting all 15 games at left tackle.

Overview: Despite his missing front teeth and shoulder-length red hair, Mauch is a rugged and attacking player who excels as a drive blocker in the run game. However, he struggles with inconsistent footwork in pass protection and has below-average arm length, which could result in him being moved inside to guard. Nonetheless, Mauch’s versatility and toughness make him a strong contender for a starting role in various schemes as an interior offensive lineman. When watching Mauch play, he gives off the impression of a hockey player on turf, with his aggressive playing style and unique appearance.

Strengths: Displays an impressive level of physicality and tenacity that is well-suited for his position. Possesses a strong drive to execute his assignments and consistently delivers forceful down blocks. Demonstrates the ability to maintain blocks effectively on both the first and second levels, showcasing above-average finishing skills as a run blocker. Capable of generating a solid punch in his double underhook technique. Exhibits effective communication skills with his teammates in blitz pickup. Has a smooth and agile hip movement that enables him to redirect his momentum and recover well in open spaces.

Weaknesses: The player’s short arms appear disproportionate to his long torso. He struggles with footwork during pass protection, which can lead to vulnerabilities. He opens up his base to bull-rush challenges by performing heel-clicking pass slides. Due to his short arms, he needs to be cautious about throwing hands prematurely. When engaging in double teams, his strike point is elevated. Additionally, he tends to get grabby with his hands when losing in the early stages of a play.

6.35 (C) - JOE TIPPMANN, Wisconsin

Height: 6′ 6”. Weight: 313 lbs.
Arm: 32 3/4”. Hand: 10 3/4”.

Prospect Grade: 6.35
Next Gen Stats: 87

Production Score: 78

40-Yd Dash:  || 10-Yd Split:  || Vert. Jump: || Broad Jump:  || 3-Cone Drill:  || 20-Yd Shuttle:  || Bench Press:

Player Bio: After being recruited from Bishop Dwenger High School as Indiana’s Mr. Football Offensive Lineman, this player joined Wisconsin’s team. He spent his redshirt freshman year playing in just two games, but in 2021, he took charge of the offense and started in 11 out of 12 games as center. This performance earned him an honorable mention for the All-Big Ten Conference recognition. He continued to impress in 2022, starting in all 12 games and once again receiving honorable mention from Big Ten coaches. Despite being offered a spot in the team’s bowl game, he opted out.

Overview: Tippmann is a two-year starter who possesses exceptional weight room strength and athleticism, making him capable of executing various run schemes. While he is taller than most centers, he is able to bend sufficiently to neutralize his opponents at the point of attack. Additionally, he has impressive fluidity in his movements, enabling him to execute wide pulls, climbing cut-offs, and make adjustments to moving targets in space. Tippmann is known for his intelligence on the field and is an effective communicator with his teammates. However, he needs to improve his posture and hand placement to improve his body control during engagement and stay on pace with his opponents while in protection. With his combination of size, strength, intelligence, and athleticism, Tippmann has the potential to become a starter in the NFL.

Strengths: This player boasts proportional thickness combined with strength, making it possible for him to neutralize opponents on the field. His high football IQ allows him to make calls and adjustments as necessary. Furthermore, he unlocks his hips and rolls them into his blocks, demonstrating his agility and flexibility. He is a plus athlete who can execute zone blocks, pulls, and climbs with ease. His fluidity, combined with his reactive athleticism, allows him to adjust to targets in space seamlessly. Additionally, his lower body flexibility enables him to cast a solid protection anchor. He keeps his head on a swivel, which allows him to spy and protect both A-gaps. Finally, his upper body power allows him to dump blitzers to the ground.

Weaknesses: This player tends to become off-balance when playing too far forward off the snap. In order to improve, they must make a concerted effort to keep their pad level low. While they possess average balance and body control through the sustain phase, they have a tendency to lead with their helmet/pads, leaving their frame open to defenders’ hands. They also lack the leverage needed to generate drive movement at the point. Additionally, they need to play with a flatter back and inside hands to improve their performance. Finally, when leaning, their lateral transitions tend to slow down when mirroring incoming twists.

6.32 (OT) - DAWAND JONES, Ohio State

40-Yd Dash: 5.35 sec || 10-Yd Split: 1.92 sec || Vert. Jump: || Broad Jump:  || 3-Cone Drill:  || 20-Yd Shuttle:  || Bench Press:

Overview: Jones is a massive right tackle who possesses rare length, but his limited athleticism affects his consistency on the field. Defenders who rely on power to win will need to adjust their strategy when facing him. Jones’s physical attributes help compensate for his athletic limitations, and his power can be maximized through precise hand strikes and a run scheme tailored to his strengths. Despite his decent slide quickness when protecting the quarterback, he struggles to maintain his balance when trying to counter inside moves or disrupt gaming fronts. Although Jones is a work in progress and requires scheme assistance to cover up his weaknesses, he has the potential to become a starting right tackle as long as he maintains his desired playing weight.

Strengths: This human mountain requires long hikes to navigate but plays with surprising agility for his size. His massive wingspan is a formidable weapon that can overpower rushers if his hand timing is on point. Additionally, he displays the ability to move up the edge with the rusher and is difficult to bull-rush due to his size and strength. He also features impressive knockback power in his hands and runs his feet through contact on play-side runs. With his massive hands, he can lock onto his opponent’s pads and control the line of scrimmage.

Weaknesses: Over the last two seasons, penalties have been a recurring issue for him. He has a tendency to overset with his heels too close together and mistime his hand strikes, which undermines his length advantage. Due to his top-heavy build, he struggles to redirect his weight quickly and can have trouble handling twisting defensive fronts. Additionally, his below-average foot quickness limits his ability to sustain blocks for an extended period. To improve, he must learn to create leverage with upward hand strikes and execute move blocks with greater consistency.

Player Bio: Avila, a highly recruited four-star player from South Grand Prairie High School in Arlington, Texas, made an immediate impact on TCU’s football team. He played in 11 games as a redshirt freshman in 2019 and followed it up with an impressive sophomore year, earning honorable mention All-Big 12 honors. He started six games at center, two at right tackle, and one at right guard. In 2021, Avila was recognized as a second-team all-conference player after starting 11 games at center. The following year, he moved to left guard and started all 15 games, earning second-team Associated Press All-American and first-team all-Big 12 honors. His exceptional pass-blocking skills were evidenced by the fact that he didn’t allow a single sack in 515 pass-blocking snaps during his final season at TCU. These accomplishments helped lead his team to a playoff berth.

Overview: Avila, a three-year starter, possesses a versatile skill set that combines power and athleticism. Despite playing at a lighter weight, he has demonstrated resistance to opposing power and is nimble enough to perform pass protection duties and run blocks that extend beyond the box. However, he lacks consistent aggression in finishing blocks and his below average hand work limits his ability to sustain blocks. Overall, Avila is projected to be a Day 2 draft pick and should have a successful NFL career as a guard or center.

Strengths: As a team captain, this prospect has a full season of starting experience at both center and left guard. His frame is dense and able to handle contact well. Despite his size, he exhibits good body control and flexibility. He is able to snap his hips into initial block fits and create sturdy wall seal blocks for A-gap run tunnels. When it comes to pass protection, his sets are balanced and firm throughout the rep, and he demonstrates good lateral slides to mirror and defend his edges.

Weaknesses: Based on the given evaluation, the player is strong in terms of initial block fits, creating sturdy walls for A-gap run tunnels and lateral slides to mirror and defend his edges. However, there are also areas that need improvement such as recognizing twist setups, punch accuracy, settle steps, playing too tall at the point of attack, and inconsistent hand usage. The player may need to work on rhythm and control, playing lower and improving his hand usage for steering and cinching up blocks to become a more consistent performer.

6.27 (OT) - ANTON HARRISON, Oklahoma

Height: 6′ 4”. Weight: 315 lbs.
Arm: 34 1/8”. Hand: 9 1/4”.

Prospect Grade: 6.27
Next Gen Stats: 81

Production Score: 77

40-Yd Dash: 4.98 seconds || 10-Yd Split: 1.77 seconds || Vert. Jump: 28.5” || Broad Jump: 8′ 9” || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: || Bench Press: reps

Player Bio: Harrison, who played for Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C., was a highly-regarded prospect and received four stars, securing a spot in the top 200 nationally. He committed to playing for Oklahoma for the 2020 season, where he served as a reserve lineman and played in nine games during his true freshman year. In his sophomore year, Harrison excelled as a left tackle, starting in 12 out of 13 games played. In 2022, he started 12 more games, one at right tackle and the rest on the left side, earning him a place as a first-team All-Big 12 Conference selection. Although invited to participate in the Cheez-It Bowl, Harrison declined in order to focus on preparing for the upcoming draft.

Overview: Despite having average athletic traits, Harrison, a left tackle with good size and length, compensates for his weaknesses by capitalizing on his strengths, demonstrating self-awareness in his approach. He possesses an intuitive understanding of pocket depth and uses his length effectively with an inside-out method, although his NFL speed may require additional support to keep him from being overpowered. While Harrison’s run blocking abilities lack the explosive power and drive of a top-tier performer, he compensates by using proper positioning to neutralize opponents. Though there may be some athletic limitations and his movements may not always appear seamless, Harrison has the temperament and football intelligence to develop into a reliable starter over time.

Strengths: Harrison’s hands are always poised for action during pass protection, remaining ready to deliver a forceful punch when needed. He demonstrates a patient approach and is careful not to overset or overextend himself at the top of the rush. When he does strike, he puts some power behind his blows. Harrison is able to fully extend his arms to maintain contact with the rusher and keep him at bay. Even when not engaged with an opposing player, Harrison is quick to seek out work and contribute to his team’s efforts. He exhibits a natural sense of timing and positioning when executing run blocking assignments. While his fluidity when climbing to linebackers is adequate, he compensates with his ability to activate his hands and discard an opponent’s punch.

Weaknesses: Harrison encounters difficulty finding his initial hand placement during run plays. As a drive blocker, he exhibits average foot chop with elevated pads and lacks the ability to forcefully move opponents upon initial contact. He may not possess the quickness necessary for diagonal sets that are common in certain offensive schemes. The coordination between his feet and hands can be disjointed at times, leading to inconsistencies in his technique. Harrison can also be susceptible to being overpowered by a speed-to-power rush and may struggle with recovering after being beaten due to below-average agility.

Player Bio: Vorhees, who was an All-American offensive and defensive tackle at Kingsburg High School in California, joined the Trojans in January 2017. He began his college career playing in 13 games as a true freshman and starting the final nine games at right guard. Despite having knee surgery after spring practices, Vorhees started in 11 out of 12 games played in 2018. The following year, he suffered an ankle injury and redshirted after playing in just two games as a reserve. In 2020, Vorhees returned to the starting lineup, playing in five games and moving to the left guard position as Alijah Vera-Tucker was shifted to tackle. He earned third-team Associated Press All-American and honorable mention All-Pac-12 Conference honors in 2021, starting in all 12 games played. During this time, he played at left guard for the first eight games and left tackle for the last four. In 2022, Vorhees was a first-team AP All-American and all-conference performer, starting in 11 games at left guard (missing three games due to injury). However, during his NFL Scouting Combine workout, he is reported to have suffered an ACL tear, as reported by NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero.

Overview: Vorhees is a guard prospect with an impressive five years of starting experience, demonstrating a high level of consistency and football IQ. He excels as a technically sound run blocker, using a repeatable process to effectively drive the ball forward. While he may have some limitations in terms of lateral range and ability to get to the second level, he compensates for this with an even-paced drive and excellent positioning, leveraged hands, and churning legs. Vorhees could benefit from improving his quickness with inside hands in pass protection and avoiding the tendency to use his hands instead of a proper foot slide to protect his edges. Unfortunately, the injury he sustained during the NFL Scouting Combine could cause his draft stock to fall. However, if fully healthy, he has the potential to become a starter at the next level.

Strengths: With five seasons of starting experience, Vorhees is a seasoned player who shows strong abilities in several areas. He has a talent for stepping into run fits at high-quality angles, allowing him to effectively engage with the defense. Vorhees is particularly impressive as a drive blocker, consistently positioning his hands well and relying on his leg churn to bolster block engagement and seal. He demonstrates a quick reaction time to moving fronts post-snap and has a solid feel for A-gap pressure when pass setting. Additionally, Vorhees is skilled at passing off twisters cleanly to his teammates. Finally, his firmness in his outside hand allows him to effectively corral any incoming rushers. Overall, Vorhees possesses a well-rounded set of skills that make him a valuable asset to any team.

Weaknesses: Vorhees is more of a catcher than a puncher, allowing some pocket push as he engages with the defense. However, he needs to improve his footwork to better constrict gaps, as opponents can sometimes out-reach him with inside hands and get into his frame. Additionally, he demonstrates only average climb quickness when making second-level cutoffs, and can be inconsistent in securing the first block on back side combos. Finally, at times his blocks can deteriorate into grappling matches rather than maintaining clean engagement. Overall, while Vorhees has a solid foundation of skills, there are areas where he could improve his technique to become an even more effective player.

40-Yd Dash:  || 10-Yd Split:  || Vert. Jump: || Broad Jump: –‘ || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: || Bench Press:

Player Bio: After graduating from Forest Park High School in Virginia, Zavala committed to playing football at Fairmont State in Division II. Although he missed some time during his freshman year due to a knee injury, he managed to play three games before redshirting. Despite weighing only 260 pounds when he first arrived on campus, he was able to gain 60 pounds over the next year, which helped him earn first-team All-Mountain East Conference honors in his sophomore and junior seasons. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented his team from playing in 2020. However, Zavala took advantage of the transfer portal and signed with North Carolina State, where he became the starting left guard for the first five games of the 2021 season. Although he was sidelined with a back injury, he was eventually granted an additional year of eligibility by the NCAA due to a knee injury he had suffered during his freshman year. This allowed him to start in 12 games at left guard and earn first-team All-ACC honors.

Overview: Zavala is a guard prospect with a solid foundation, although his athleticism is somewhat limited. However, he has a notable talent for pushing opponents out of the running lane. Although he may be a bit slow to get into position as a move blocker, he has experience with various run blocking schemes. As a drive blocker, he possesses pure power that is capable of matching up with NFL interior defenders. He utilizes heavy hands and a wide base as both a run and pass blocker. However, due to his limited reactive agility, he may struggle in protection and against downhill linebackers. Despite this, his size and potential make him a strong candidate to become a starter in the future.

Strengths: Zavala has a burly frame with broad hips and good length. His footwork is highly effective on combo blocks, particularly when working to linebackers. As a drive blocker, he is particularly impressive, and he can create sizable gaps with booming hand strikes that can stop gap-shooting linebackers in their tracks. In addition, he demonstrates a keen understanding of protection schemes and plays intelligently. Against power rushers, he is able to stay wide and mirror their movements effectively.

Weaknesses: Zavala’s ability to get off the snap can sometimes be hindered by a slight delay. His reactive agility to moving targets is limited, which can make it difficult for him to adjust to sudden changes in direction. When attempting to secure move blocks, he can struggle to get his feet in the correct position, which can lead to inconsistency in block centering and create contact imbalances at times. Additionally, he may occasionally lunge after rushers who manage to slip past his edge.

6.19 (C) - OLUSEGUN OLUWATIMI, Michigan

Height: 6′ 2 1/2”. Weight: 309 lbs.

40-Yd Dash: 5.38 seconds || 10-Yd Split: 1.86 seconds || Vert. Jump: 29” || Broad Jump: 9′ 2” || 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: || Bench Press: 29 reps

Player Bio: After an impressive stint at DeMatha Catholic in Maryland, Oluwatimi enrolled in the Air Force Academy in 2017. However, he had to sit out the 2018 season due to NCAA transfer rules after moving to Virginia. In his first year as a starting center, Oluwatimi garnered honorable mention All-ACC accolades, starting in 13 of the 14 games he played, and playing at guard in the game he couldn’t start at center due to a hand injury. He played in all 10 games at center in 2020, and in 2021, he earned the title of Rimington Trophy finalist and second-team All-ACC selection, starting in all 12 games. In his final collegiate season, Oluwatimi transferred to Michigan, where he won the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the nation’s top center, and the Outland Trophy, presented to the top offensive or defensive lineman, for his outstanding performance in 14 starts.

Overview: As a four-year starter and highly decorated player, Oluwatimi was an integral part of the offensive line unit that won the Joe Moore Award (best offensive line in college football) for two consecutive years. He excelled in a scheme that utilized tight splits and exploited double teams up front. While he tends to bend a little at the waist, he displays good technique on double teams and generates decent drive on base blocks. However, Oluwatimi lacks the necessary lateral quickness required for range as a run blocker and needs to improve his ability to identify and respond to twists in pass protection. He has the potential to become a future starter, but he may struggle in a scheme that requires him to play in open space.

Strengths: Oluwatimi demonstrates his ability to settle-steps into the target and roll his hips into the block, using his adequate drive strength in his lower body as a single blocker. He possesses above-average core strength, allowing him to consistently center a double team block and make contact as the first offensive lineman. He secures the first block before peeking up to the second level. In pass protection, Oluwatimi employs independent hands and is capable of disengaging and resetting his hands against counters.

Weaknesses: Oluwatimi’s lateral range as a run blocker is limited, and he does not generate enough knockback pop into his first contact. He sometimes allows the nose tackle to separate and play off him, and his sustain and finish are very average. Oluwatimi struggles to slide quickly enough to recover his edge and can be pulled forward over his toes by the rusher. Additionally, he sometimes chases and loses gap responsibility against twists.

6.13 (OT) - TYLER STEEN, Alabama

Player Bio: After redshirting in 2018, Steen initially played on the defensive line for Vanderbilt before transitioning to right tackle and starting all 12 games in his first year at the position. He continued as the starting left tackle for the next two seasons, starting all nine games in 2020 and all 12 games in 2021. Steen then transferred to Alabama as a graduate student before the 2022 season and received second-team All-SEC honors for his play at left tackle in 13 starts. His father, Daris, played football at LSU and served in the military, and his late grandfather, Rodney M. Davis, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions in the Vietnam War.

Overview: Steen is a versatile offensive lineman who started his career as a defensive tackle before transitioning to left tackle at Alabama. He has good awareness of twists and blitzes and uses his length and hand resets to extend his mirroring in pass protection. However, he needs to work on his catch-and-clamp hands to limit secondary rush opportunities. In the run game, he shows hustle and back-side positioning on zone blocks, but his forward lean needs to be eliminated to improve timing and adjustments at the second level. Steen has good size and average athleticism, but needs to continue fine-tuning his technique. He has the potential to compete as a swing backup early on and could become a starter in the future.


  • Exhibits strong lateral quickness when getting off the snap.
  • Strains to maintain his position against move blocks.
  • Uses choppy footwork to secure angle blocks.
  • Able to protect the B-gap against twists by stepping and squeezing.
  • Makes effective use of his length by timing their punch well.
  • Inside hand is forceful and compact.
  • Able to reset his hands as necessary.


  • Tends to come out of his stance with a high pad level.
  • Excessive forward lean affects body control.
  • Second-level blocking adjustments are below average.
  • Position and hand placement as a run blocker is inconsistent.

  • Can display a sense of hurry and lunging at the top of the rush.

6.00 (OT) - JAELYN DUNCAN, Maryland

Next Gen Stats: 73

40-Yd Dash: 5.1 seconds || 10-Yd Split: 1.78 seconds || Vert. Jump: 31.5” || Broad Jump: 9′ 5” 3-Cone Drill: || 20-Yd Shuttle: || Bench Press: reps

Player Bio: Despite not starting to play football until the age of 14, Duncan rapidly emerged as a highly touted prospect at St. Frances Academy in Maryland, earning a four-star rating. He committed to the Terrapins in 2018 and spent his first year redshirting before taking over as the starting left tackle for the final 11 games of the 2019 season. Duncan’s strong play earned him an honorable mention for the All-Big Ten Conference in 2020, as he started all five games at left tackle. He continued to excel in the position, starting 11 out of 13 games in the 2021 season, and starting all 12 games in 2022, earning him recognition as a starter for three consecutive seasons.

Overview: As a highly athletic four-year starter at left tackle, Duncan’s skills may be best suited for the zone-scheme guard position in the league. While his athletic ability is impressive, his overall game tape reveals a lack of consistent effort and finish. His opponents often remain involved in the play due to his failure to fully engage. Although he possesses the foot speed to handle the left tackle position, his ability to anchor against strong defenders is a major concern. Duncan’s lateral quickness could prove advantageous as a move blocker, but he will need to demonstrate the necessary toughness to hold his own against powerful NFL defenders at the point of attack to thrive in the league.

Strengths: This player boasts an impressive four-year tenure as a starting left tackle. Their natural athleticism is evident in their loose hips and fluidity when operating in open space. They also display smooth acceleration when executing pull plays. Their stance is strong and they demonstrate adequate pad level and bend when coming off the ball. When making kickout blocks, their feet are quick and effective at redirecting edge defenders. Their pass sets feature quality slide quickness, allowing them to hold their ground against opposing pass rushers. In the event that they are beaten, their athleticism allows them to recover quickly and maintain their positioning.

Weaknesses: Despite being able to move effortlessly in open space, this player struggles to capitalize on these opportunities. Their tendency to finish plays passively often allows their opponents to escape their grasp. When executing combination blocks, they tend to only deliver glancing blows that do little to secure their initial block. Their lack of length can be a liability in pass protection, as it leaves them vulnerable to being beaten by longer defenders. Opponents who rely on speed to penetrate the line of scrimmage can easily exploit this player’s outside edge. Additionally, their anchor is not strong enough to withstand sustained pressure from opposing pass rushers.

5.95 (G) - NICK BROEKER, Ole Miss

Player Bio: Broeker, whose name is pronounced BRO-kurr, was a highly touted four-star recruit from Sacred Heart-Griffin High School in Springfield, Illinois, before he joined the Oxford team. As a true freshman, he impressed with his skills and earned playing time in all 12 games as a key reserve, often logging more than 30 snaps in a game. Broeker went on to start all 10 games in the Rebels’ 2020 season and all 13 games in 2021. In 2022, he transitioned to play left guard and received second-team All-SEC honors after a remarkable performance of not allowing a single sack in 435 pass-blocking snaps across 13 starts, according to PFF.

Overview: Broeker is a guard prospect with an average build who possesses impressive run-blocking skills that allow him to perform beyond his size. He may not excel as a move blocker, but he thrives in opening lanes by using powerful hand strikes and maintaining a strong base to push through contact. Broeker is consistent in finishing his blocks and employs excellent hand usage, though his inconsistent body control detracts from his pass protection. As a result, his pass protection skills require some improvement. Despite being an athlete of below-average ability, he compensates with above-average play strength, which makes him a strong candidate for becoming a starting guard in a downhill run scheme.

Strengths: Once he’s centered up, this player treats opponents like a blocking sled, relentlessly attacking and sustaining the block with vice-like grip. He is an all-day worker who never gives up on finishing the block. He exhibits excellent efficiency with his hands and hips, allowing him to swivel and seal cross-face blocks with ease. Additionally, he takes appropriate angles when targeting opponents in the second level, showcasing his keen spatial awareness. He impresses with his quick recovery against sudden movement at the line and can quickly sink an anchor with his flexible lower half. Even when left uncovered in protection, he actively looks for work to do.

Weaknesses: Despite being an effective blocker, this player’s below-average length limits his potential. As a move blocker, he lacks the desired athleticism, which can be a disadvantage when it comes to executing plays. He sometimes enters his down blocks too tall, which affects his leverage and effectiveness. In order to improve his game, he must learn to play with tighter, inside hands. Unfortunately, his below-average win rate when landing his first hands is a persistent issue. Moreover, he needs to play with better poise and control in his pass sets. Lastly, he tends to chase and void his gap too easily, a problem that can be addressed with improved discipline and awareness.

Player Bio: Forsyth, a highly-touted recruit from West Linn High School in Oregon, ventured to Eugene for college. After redshirting in 2017, he played as a reserve guard and tackle in five games during the 2018 and 2019 seasons. During his junior year in 2020, Forsyth started all seven games for the Ducks at center and earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors. Despite missing five games in 2021 due to a back injury, he still received second-team all-conference recognition. In 2022, he was named a first-team all-conference selection and was a finalist for the Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year award, which recognizes a college football player who demonstrates exceptional leadership, courage, integrity, and sportsmanship.

Overview: Forsyth possesses good size and length, making him a reliable option for center or guard positions. His consistent technique is highly valued by offensive line coaches. While his range from the home base is limited, he makes up for it with a powerful block and consistent effort to sustain and finish assignments. However, he struggles with protecting the A-gaps and has a tendency to commit pre-snap penalties, which is a cause for concern. Moreover, his subpar explosiveness test results at the NFL Scouting Combine may make teams hesitant to draft him in the later rounds on Day 3.

Strengths: Forsyth efficiently fits into blocks with a burst of energy. He has received excellent training and is skilled at using his inside hands. When making a block, he rolls his hips and drives his feet into the contact point. He is also capable of using the defender’s momentum to create wash-down blocks. Forsyth excels at sustaining and finishing his blocks at the desired rate. In terms of pass protection, he utilizes a stiff left jab and displays excellent body control. Additionally, he opens his hips and swiftly moves laterally to catch incoming twists.

Weaknesses: Forsyth struggles with pre-snap jitters, which have resulted in penalties. His snap-to-step quickness when protecting the A-gap is below average. He may require additional core strength to hold his own against the physical demands of the NFL. Forsyth’s range when defending against edge attacks is average at best. To capture leverage against rushers, he needs to work on improving his hand resets.

Overview: Patterson is a center/guard prospect who excels in run-blocking but has limitations in pass protection due to his athletic abilities. Although he has short arms, his effective and accurate hand strikes compensate for this. He is also skilled at staying connected to his run blocks and working well with teammates on double teams. Patterson maintains good contact balance and rarely gets outdone with the firmness of his initial contact. However, his feet are not as quick as his eyes, which becomes evident when he has to redirect against athletic rushers. His success is dependent on the scheme and he needs to demonstrate his functional athleticism to win more battles than he loses.

Strengths: As a team captain, this player has a strong work ethic and makes no wasted movements when engaging in blocks. He consistently strives to improve his positioning and finishing abilities. Once connected to a block, he becomes difficult to disengage from. Additionally, he demonstrates the ability to sift through the second level while keeping a watchful eye on blitzers. His punch timing is well-timed to achieve proper extension during the block.

Weaknesses: This player falls short of the standard arm length requirement. While his hand speed is impressive, his footwork is slower by comparison. He also lacks the necessary bend and leg drive, which results in below average impact when leaving the phone booth. Additionally, he struggles to effectively mirror an edge-to-edge rush attack and exhibits below average recovery skills when facing twists.
