DEEP FRIED DRAFT
1 Yodny Cajuste West Virginia Sr 6'5 321
Cajuste is a mauler at left tackle. Athletic and a fighter best describe him. Cajuste has a minor injury that kept him out of their bowl game.
2 Max Scharping Northern Illinois Sr 6'6 320
Scharping has started 49 consecutive games, every game of his career. He played every offensive snap in 2018.
3 Andre Dillard Washington State Sr 6'5 306
Dillard is a tremendous pass blocker. He has the arm length and athletic ability needed to handle the elite edge rushers. Can he run block? That is the question he will need to answer.
4 Kaleb McGary Washington Sr 6'6 318
McGary is a three-year starter at right tackle. He was named first-team All-Pac 12 the last two seasons.
5 Dennis Daley South Carolina Sr 6'6 324
Daley was a JUCO product at Georgia Military College. He quickly emerged as the starting left tackle for the Gamecocks. He has gotten better, seemingly on a weekly basis. Daley has the measurables that NFL teams crave. A good week at the Senior Bowl could make his stock soar.
6 Chuma Edoga Southern Cal Sr 6'4 295
Edoga has made 16 career starts with the Trojans. Most of the starts came on the right side.
IC Tytus Howard Alabama State Sr 6'6 280
Howard is a multi-year starter at left tackle for the Hornets. He had a phenomenal against Auburn this season. His athleticism and length will be huge from him. The weigh-in at the Senior Bowl will also be key.
2019 Senior Bowl: Ranking the OTs
The 2019 Reese’s Senior Bowl is upon us. Beginning January 22nd, 110 senior football prospects will interview with and practice in front of hundreds of NFL coaches and scouts. Tuesday morning, the players will weigh-in and then both teams will lightly practice in the afternoon. Wednesday and Thursday are the two biggest practice days when both squads practice in full pads. This culminates in the game at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama on Saturday at 1:30 pm. The game can also be seen live on NFL Network.
Deep Fried Draft will have it covered all week. Look for daily write-ups about the practices each day.
Below I rank the offensive tackles playing in this year's game. I go from best to worst.
**Please note that these rankings are based on what I have seen up to this point. What I see upon further tape study, Senior Bowl performance, and the rest of the draft process will likely change these rankings.**
***This also reflects the roster that was announced in early January***
