Top 10 Offensive Linemen In The 2021 NFL Draft

Sam Cosmi

OT, Texas, 6-6, 314 lbs.
Number 10 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Sam Cosmi Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Scouts say he moves like a big tight end (he scored a catch-and-run touchdown) in open space. Critics say he is penalized too often and is too reliant on technique to physically dominate.

 

Liam Eichenberg

Left Tackle, Notre Dame 6-6, 302 lbs.
Number 9 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Liam Eichenberg Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
A three-year starter at left tackle, following in the footsteps of Mike McGlinchey, Ronnie Stanley, and Zack Martin since 2010. While not having much of a ceiling, Eichenberg is considered a safe late first, or second-round pick who will be a steady longtime starter.

 

Landon Dickerson

Center, Alabama, 6-6, 333 lbs.
Number 8 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Landon Dickerson Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Rimington Trophy winner as the best center in the nation in his one season after transferring from Florida State. Would be a no doubt 1st rounder if not for his worrisome medical history. Dickerson’s coming off an ACL injury in the SEC title game.

 

Dillon Radunz

OT, North Dakota State, 6-4, 301 lbs
Number 7 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Dillon Radunz Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Played under an increased spotlight because of quarterback Trey Lance. Better run-blocker than pass-protector but earned Practice Player of the Week honors at the Senior Bowl.

 

Jalen Mayfield

OT/OG, Michigan, 6-5, 326 lbs.
Number 6 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Jalen Mayfield Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Played in just 18 games, so if you’re picking Mayfield it’s because of his potential. You can’t teach his toughness, but he’ll need to sit behind a vet for his first year in order to be taught fundamentals.

 

Teven Jenkins

Left Tackle, Oklahoma State, 6-6, 317 lbs.
Number 5 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Teven Jenkins Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Don’t let his looks fool you, this boy has got a mean streak when it comes to playing the O-LPrototypical NFL frame at the four non-center positions (mostly right tackle), but most likely will take a year and sit behind a vet in order to learn left tackle. Has short arms, but quick hands/feet which allows him to handle a bull rush.

 

Christian Darrisaw

OT, Virginia Tech, 6-5, 322 lbs
Number 4 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Christian Darrisaw Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Smooth technique throughout his career at left tackle (35 starts) and answered some questions about his inconsistent effort in 2020.

 

Alijah Vera-Tucker

OG, USC, 6-5, 308 lbs.
Number 3 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Alijah Vera-Tucker Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Played left tackle last season but is considered a future All-Pro guard, maybe closer to Pro Bowler Brandon Scherff than Hall of Fame-track Quenton Nelson. Wins with his hands.

 

Rashawn Slater

OT/OG Northwestern, 6-4, 304 lbs.
Number 2 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Rashawn Slater Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Some say he should move to guard because he has short arms and the athleticism to pull. He says he’s the best tackle in the draft. That perceived slight should only add to his nastiness.

 

Penei Sewell

Left Tackle, Oregon, 6-5, 331 lbs.
Number 1 The Top 10 Best List, top 10 list Penei Sewell Top 10 Offensive Linemen 2021 NFL Draft
Whichever team picks Penei Sewell they’ll be getting a day one starter, who’ll be playing left tackle for that team for the next decade. Powerful upper body and nimble feet. One sack allowed on 1,376 career snaps.

 

Close But No Cigar

  • 11. Wyatt Davis, OG, Ohio State, 6-4, 315 lbs.
  • 12. Quinn Meinerz, C, Wisconsin-Whitewater, 6-3, 320 lbs.
  • 13. James Hudson, OT, Cincinnati, 6-5, 310 lbs.

2021 NFL Draft

The 2021 NFL Draft is scheduled to be held in Cleveland from April 29 to May 1, 2021.

The Jacksonville Jaguars, who finished with the worst record in 2020, hold the draft’s first overall selection. The Jags WILL be selecting Clemson QB, Trevor Lawrence.
