Draft Preview: Notable Offensive Tackle Highlights


Andrus Peat**

At nearly 6-7 and 313 pounds, he has the size and frame desired from offensive tackles in the NFL. The junior and two-year starter at left tackle won the Pac 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year Award as a junior, excelling in the run and pass game. His next step is refining some of his technique to reach his true potential as an NFL left or right tackle.

La'el Collins

A four-year senior from LSU, Collins started at left tackle his last two years – and some project him at both tackle and guard at the Pro Level. At 6-4 and 305 pounds, he is powerful and has a mean streak that allowed him to dominate opposing linemen. It might not always look pretty due to poor technique, but Collins often got the job done.

T.J. Clemmings

A five-year senior out of Pittsburgh – Clemmings checks in at 6-4 and 309 pounds – a converted DE his first two years in the program – Clemmings started at right tackle his junior and senior seasons. He has the body and athleticism to play tackle but is still learning proper technique as a late convert to the offensive line.

Ereck Flowers

A junior out of Miami, this 6-6, 329-pound monster started 25 games at left tackle during his career, and four on the right side a freshman. He has the size, wingspan and athleticism that will give him a chance to be successful long-term in the National Football League. He has blocked in man and zone schemes but lacks polish on his technique.

D.J. Humphries

A junior out of Florida, he started 19 games at left tackle for the Gators. At 6-5 and 307 pounds, he has great feet and natural athleticism, perfect for the left tackle spot. Independent scouts say he needs to get a little stronger and improve his awareness if he wants to be a dominant player on the pro level – he has a very high ceiling.
