 Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M

If you haven’t heard this guy’s name yet, then get ready. Ogbuehi is an absolute stud. In 2012, with Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews taking up both tackle spots, Cedric started every game at guard, blocking for Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. When Joeckel left for the draft in 2013, Ogbuehi moved to the right tackle spot with Matthews going to the left tackle position. That’s when people, especially draft twitter, began to realize how good he really is. His versatility is a bonus, but he can do anything he wants to do, and with relative ease. At 6-5, 300, he has the size to be a legit right tackle. In fact, he might be better suited for left tackle, though he just hasn’t had the chance to show it.

With David Stewart more than likely on the way out, this would be a wise draft decision both for the short-term and long-term. Steady left tackle Michael Roos may be gone after next year, and drafting Ogbuehi would allow him to fill that blindside spot, after commanding the right tackle spot in 2014, should that situation play out like that.

    How can you not include Kalil Mack? DE/OLB. High motor pass rusher. Solid tackler. Can cover. Would fit 4-3 or 3-4, depending on new DC’s scheme. He’s at the top of my list. The question is, will he be there @ 11?

    • Matias Wodner

      I was only giving a couple of different options and since I had already given a pass rusher in Ealy, I figured I would move to other positions. My thinking was that Jerry Gray is still technically the DC, so Ealy would be a better pass rush fit than Mack would be in Gray’s defense. Don’t get me wrong, Mack is a top 5 talent in this draft, but I’m not sure how this defense will look come next year. And I don’t know if he’ll be available either. He’s looking like a top 10 pick, and I think he’s better than Anthony Barr too.
