[UPDATE] 2018 NFL Draft OG Rankings — Top 25

This is one of the richest guard draft classes we’ve seen in quite some time, with Notre Dame stud Quenton Nelson projected by many draftniks to be selected amongst the top five overall selections. Players such as Isaiah Wynn of Georgia and Will Hernandez of UTEP, both of whom had strong performances during Senior Bowl week, are also in the mix for round one consideration. Remember the names, Tony Adams of North Carolina State and Dejon Allen of Hawaii, likely day three values with tremendous upside. Selecting guards has become extremely popular this decade. From 2000-2009, just nine guards were selected in the first round. There have already been 15 guards chosen in the first round since 2010, which rivals the 1980s, when 19 guards were drafted in the first round during that decade.
