He might be a long shot, but the athletic ability is off the charts and could be a dominant LT under Tice.
2. OT Anthony Costanzo [Boston College]
He is a technician who does everything to make up for not having elite athletic ability. Has some bad tape, but could start and will work for the team.
3. OG Mike Pouncey [Florida]
Pouncey might be the ideal situation as he gives the Bears versatility inside and could start at OG or C.
4. DT Cory Liuget [Illinios]
Outside of Fairley and Dareus, Liuget is the most disruptive player at the 3 technique positon. Liuget would probably make it easier not to pick an OLmen in the 1st round.
5. OT Gabe Carimi [Wisconsin]
Carimi may never be a LT and like Costanzo he has some bad tape, but a great work ethic. The best run blocker in the class by a lot and could be dominant at RT or even LG.
6. DT Muhammed Wilkerson [Temple]
Wilkerson is rising for me as he has the size to play at NT, but also has the pass rush ability to play the 3 technique. Was really disruptive against Penn State.
7. OT Nate Solder [Colorado]
Nate Solder could be #1, but there is to much bad tape against good competition. I would be okay with the pick as I trust Tice to develop him, but there are HUGE technique issues and strength issues.
8. OT Derek Sherrod [Mississippi State]
Sherrod is not flashy and he is not dominant, but he is a gifted athlete and pass blocker that Martz needs. Sherrod is a risk and people will compare him to Chris Williams, but he is a better prospect.
9. DT Stephen Paea [Oregon St]
A stout disruptive player that has great strength, but knee issues and a lack of dominant games move him down the list for me.
10. OG Marcus Cannon [TCU]
You cannot teach someone to move like this at 6'5"350lbs and he could be a Pro Bowl LG, but he needs to be coached up and to use his size and strength.
11. C Stefen Wisniewski [Penn State]
A technician and a leader that may be a reach at 29 and may not be there at 63. He has everything you want except physical ability and power.
12. DT Drake Nevis [LSU]
A stout penetrating force that was disruptive in the SEC. He has the first step and power to get into the backfield, but he has a narrow base in the run game.
13. OT Orlando Franklin [Miami]
At 6'5" 316lbs and with a nasty disposition you know Mike Tice will take a look at him. Franklin may be best at LG.
14. OG Clint Boling [Georgia]
Boling is never going to wow you, but he is going to start for a long time at LG with his combination of size, technique and nastiness.
15. DT Marvin Austin [UNC]
There are red flags and he may not have interviewed well at the combine but he is a physical talent and would be worth a late 2nd round risk.
