One man’s view of how you stack the draft’s top three O-Linemen

In what order would you put the top three offensive linemen in the draft?

Former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah, now with the NFL Network, has this view on the pecking order of North Carolina State’s Ickey Ekwonu, Alabama’s Evan Neal and Mississippi State’s Charles Cross.

“I would go Ekwonu first and then Evan Neal, and then I would go Cross,” Jeremiah said.

Jeremiah feels Ekwonu might have the highest upside.

“I know teams around the league are a little split around [Ekwonu] because he’s kind of raw in pass pro,” Jeremiah said. “But it’s all there. It’s all in his body. He’s a dominant, dominant run blocker who I think has some inside-outside ability. The interesting thing with [Ekwonu] and with Evan Neal — and teams are split in terms of who the best guy is – they’ve both played inside and they’ve both played tackle. They allow you to get your best five on the field. For me [Cross] is the third guy. I know in terms of pass protection he’s pretty polished.”
