[UPDATE] 2018 NFL Draft OT Rankings — Top 35

One position that truly has no consensus ‘top’ player in the 2018 NFL Draft is at offensive tackle. While several prospects are considered first round talents, such as Mike McGlinchey of Notre Dame and Connor Williams of Texas, neither is viewed as a franchise left tackle type. Some under the radar picks who possess next level starting traits include, Jamarco Jones of Ohio State, Brandon Parker of North Carolina A&T and D-II talent Alex Cappa of Humboldt State. The premium placed on offensive tackles has fallen drastically over the past three drafts, down from 26 selected in 2015, to 20 picked during 2016 and just 16 offensive tackles drafted a year ago. The way this class shapes up, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a run at the position during the early-to-mid part of round two.
