This year’s Senior Bowl features several intriguing interior offensive line prospects who could hear their name called early in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The interior of the offensive lines at the Senior Bowl will be a fun group to watch. There are some real physical guards and centers who plan on attending the game. It should make for some nice battles in the trenches.

More from With the First Pick

My highest rated guard/center attending this year’s Senior Bowl is Michigan’s Mason Cole. He is a versatile player who has seen time at center, guard and offensive tackle. This past year, Cole solely lined up at left tackle.

His best position at the next level is at center, but the fact that he can move around the offensive line will help his draft stock.

Arkansas’ Frank Ragnow is another talented center prospect who should hear his named called on the second day of the draft. He is a physical player who can open up running lanes. However, Ragnow is also an underrated athlete capable of making blocks on the move.

The guard spot is headlined by UTEP’s Will Hernandez and Iowa’s Sean Welsh. Both players bring a nastiness to the field. These are big and powerful prospects who can drive defenders off the line of scrimmage.

Hernandez has a real opportunity to help himself at the Senior Bowl. He can show everyone that he can handle the bump in competition. Playing at UTEP didn’t offer Hernandez a ton of opportunities to play against elite opponents.

Some other names to watch include Georgia’s Isaiah Wynn, Virginia Tech’s Wyatt Teller, Nevada’s Austin Corbett and Idaho State’s Skyler Phillips.
