Broad: 105.0″

Extremely powerful. An absolute mauler in the running game. Doesn’t let defenders out of his grasp when he engages. Can easily wipe out a defensive lineman before moving up to take out a linebacker. Strong hands and punch. Knows how to finish. Enjoys punishing defenders. Superb technique as both a run- and pass-blocker. Works in tandem with teammates. Excellent field awareness in pass protection. Great size and fitness for a guard. Ideal base and always prepared to flatten blitzing defenders. Throws and pushes people around like a WWE superstar.



Doesn’t have elite athleticism or explosiveness. Could struggle against speed rushers on the interior. Might not be extremely effective as a lead blocker out in space with an eager runner behind him.

Kelechi Osemele – Mike Iupati – Brandon Brooks



Easily the top offensive lineman in this year’s class, Quenton Nelson is well worth a premium selection in April. He should be a dominant presence on the line for many years with his combination of power, technique, and awareness.

This guy really just clotheslines any defenders that get close to him. Hopefully my Giants take him if Barkley is gone.




Hahahhaha throws people around like a WWE guy


Football player. Whoever gets him is getting a player.
