This year’s offensive tackle group features some strong talent and a few of those prospects are attending the Senior Bowl.

Most of the big name offensive tackles likely  heading to the 2018 NFL Draft are not attending this year’s Senior Bowl. That group includes Texas’ Connor Williams, Oklahoma State’s Orlando Brown Jr. and Notre Dames Mike McGlinchey.

However, there are a few intriguing prospects who do play to attend. My top rated attendee is Western Michigan’s Chukwuma Okorfor. He’s a good athlete with the size needed to hold up on the edge.

Okorfor slides in right behind McGlinchey on my Big Board as a mid 1st round prospect. I wound’t be shocked if he used the Senior Bowl as a spring board to move up some rankings.

Mississippi State’s Martinas Rankin has some love in the draft community, but seems more of a guard prospect based on my evaluations. However, it makes sense for him to give tackle a shot at the Senior Bowl.

Oregon’s Tyrell Crosby is in a similar boat as Rankin in that he may be a better fit inside. However, he does show a little more movement skills which could keep him on the outside.

There are four small school prospects who have a chance to really help themselves. Humbolt State’s Alex Cappa, North Carolina A&T’s Brandon Parker, Stony Brook’s Timon Parris and West Georgia’s Desmond Harrison have shown potential during their career.

They now face the challenge of a rise in competition. It’s interesting to see a Senior Bowl roster feature so many small school prospects at the offensive tackle spot.
