1. Peter Skoronski, Northwestern

BIG BOARD RANK: 5

With sub-33-inch arms, Skoronski very well may end up a guard for some teams. At tackle, though, he was lights out this past fall. He allowed only six pressures on 474 pass-blocking snaps in his third season as Northwestern’s starting left tackle.

2. Paris Johnson Jr., Ohio State

BIG BOARD RANK: 16

Johnson showed out in his first season at left tackle — he yielded all of 14 pressures on 449 pass-blocking snaps. At 6-foot-6 and 310 pounds, he ticks all the physical boxes you could want at the position.

3. Broderick Jones, Georgia

BIG BOARD RANK: 20

Jones is a bully of an offensive tackle. You’re not going through him, you’ll have to go around. He earned an 84.1 pass-blocking grade in his first full season starting at left tackle for the Bulldogs.

4. Darnell Wright, Tennessee

BIG BOARD RANK: 22

Wright is a four-year starter who finally saw the proverbial light flip on this past fall. His tape against Alabama’s Will Anderson Jr. was outstanding, as he allowed only one pressure in that game and eight for the season.

5. Anton Harrison, Oklahoma

BIG BOARD RANK: 24

Harrison is a nimble 6-foot-5, 315-pound tackle who saw time on the left side for the Sooners ever since he was a true freshman. This past season, he allowed only nine pressures on 447 pass-blocking snaps.

6. Dawand Jones, Ohio State

BIG BOARD RANK: 31

Jones is as big a tackle as you’ll ever see at 6-foot-8 and 374 pounds with 36 3/8-inch arms. At that size, he is one of the more refined pass protectors in the class. Jones allowed only five pressures on 419 pass-blocking snaps last season.

7. Cody Mauch, North Dakota State

BIG BOARD RANK: 51

Mauch is one of the most athletic tackles in the class. He flies across the field in the run game, where he earned a 90.1 grade this past fall. His pass protection technique is still a work in progress, however, and a move inside could be in his future. 

8. Matthew Bergeron, Syracuse

BIG BOARD RANK: 65

Bergeron has deadening hands in pass protection that should translate to the next level. He earned pass-blocking grades of 80.8 and 85.4 in the past two seasons.

9. Nick Saldiveri, Old Dominion

BIG BOARD RANK: 91

Saldiveri is a likely tackle-to-guard convert who could excel in pass protection after such a move. He earned an 85.1 pass-blocking grade this past season.

10. Tyler Steen, Alabama

BIG BOARD RANK: 107

Steen has four years of starting experience but figures to be a guard convert at the next level. He's one of the more powerful linemen in this class and has the traits to be a plus pass-protecting guard.
