NFL Draft: Offensive Tackle Rankings, Part One

16) Reid Fragel (6-7/308)
Ohio State
Amazingly, Fragel played tight end in Columbus his first three seasons before moving to right tackle. It was an easy transition for Fragel because he was more or less a blocking tight end. He added 30 pounds and is still learning the craft of a right tackle. Fragel is a kid with a lot of natural ability, great feet, long arms and plenty of upside. He needs to find an NFL club where he can take time to develop and work on his technique.

17) Vinston Painter (6-4/306)
Virginia Tech
Painter came to Blacksburg and spent time at the tackle position on both sides of the ball before settling in on offense. He doesn't have ideal height for OT but has good arm length, strength and very good feet. In terms of run blocking he's solid just needs to continue to work on his hands and technique. Shows versatility as he also played guard for the Hokies.

18) Emmett Cleary (6-6.5/316)
Boston College
This is a big framed tackle with long arms. He shows good feet and balance when pass protecting. He's also a solid run blocker. Cleary, like a few others in this draft, must get stronger to contend with the NFL defensive linemen. He has a chance to be a steal for someone late in the draft.

19) Rogers Gaines (6-6/334)
Tennessee State
Gaines is a massive prospect with a very long arm length of 36 1/4". That combination makes him a huge OT. Solid blocker in both run and pass game but needs to play with better pad level and leverage, which is sometime harder to do with a player of his size.

20) Tanner Hawkinson (6-5/298)
Kansas
Hawkinson, like Eric Fisher, came out of high school as a tight end before converting to defensive end then to offensive tackle. This is a four-year starter with a lot of experience. He's a solid player when it comes to run blocking but at times in pass pro can be overpowered by stronger defensive linemen. He definitely needs to work on his overall strength.

21) Dann O'Neill (6-7/317)
Western Michigan
O'Neill is another massive OT with very long arms (close to 36"). He projects as a likely right tackle. He has good strength and decent but not great feet. At this stage a better run blocker than pass protector. O'Neill plays hard and could be a nice late round find.

22) Braden Brown (6-6/310)
BYU
Brown looks like your prototypical offensive tackle. He's 6-foot-6 with a long reach (34"). Brown has very good feet and can sink his hips and bend. He comes off the ball pretty well and looks equally adept in the run game and in pass protection. Brown can be overpowered and need to work on strength.

23) Luke Marquardt (6-8/315)
Azusa Pacific
This is a very big and athletic offensive tackle prospect that sustained a broken foot this past season. He possesses good feet, balance and has those long arms you covet in pass pro. Sometime being 6-foot-8 can be a hindrance, as he can lose the leverage battle, especially in the run game. He could be the first player taken from his school in the NFL Draft since Christian Okoye.

24) Mark Jackson (6-5/328)
Glenville State College
Jackson is a three-year starter and former captain. Don't let being from a small school scare you away. He could be a good late round find for some NFL club. At this point Jackson is a better run blocker than pass protector. He has upside but still a ways to go developmental wise.

25) Manase Foketi (6-5/333)
West Texas A&M
Foketi spent his initial college days at a junior college and then missed the 2011 season with an Achilles injury. Left K-State and went to West Texas A&M this past season. This is a strong player, especially in the run game. Foketi has good athleticism for a big man. He could be a steal for someone.

26) Jason Weaver (6-5/313)
Southern Miss
Weaver can move very well for a guy with his size and frame. He projects as a right tackle or guard in the NFL. He started his last 24 games for the Eagles. He played two seasons at Arizona Western. This is an OL that's pretty light on his feet and solid in the run game and in pass pro.

27) John Wetzel (6-7/315)
Boston College
Wetzel is a pure power player at the tackle position that will have to play right tackle or move inside to guard. He's got size and is physical and very strong. Wetzel needs to work on footwork and agility in his pass sets, as he struggles against players with athleticism and quickness. Wetzel is much better in the run game than in pass pro.

28) Nick Becton (6-5/323)
Virginia Tech
Becton is a developmental prospect not a plug and play guy at this time. He only has about a season's worth of starts. He has ideal size, long arms and pretty good feet. Becton needs to learn to play with more consistency.

29) Jamal Johnson-Webb (6-5/313)
Alabama A&M
Johnson-Webb has ideal size for the tackle position and more suited for the right side. He was a four-year starter at Alabama A&M, which says something about his abilities. He has quickness and pretty good feet. He just needs to work on his strength to compete against the NFL defensive linemen.

30) LaAdrian Waddle (6-6/321)
Texas Tech
Waddle is an enormous OT with an arm length of 36 inches. He has the frame and decent footwork. At this point looks like a late round guy or perhaps a free agent player post-draft.
