12.) Seantrel Henderson, Miami (6’7, 331): Henderson has all the tools to be a beast at tackle. Of course he couldn’t do it consistently in college which is why a guy with his size and agility is projected to be a mid-round pick. Henderson has a ton of potential, but off-field issues and on field focus problems have kept him from reaching it so far. If he ever matures and focuses on football the sky is the limit and he’s worth a gamble as early as the 3rd round. Draft Projection: 3rd-4th round

13.) Billy Turner, North Dakota St (6’5, 315): Turner dominated for 4 years at ND St, but that is a long ways from the NFL. Even the Senior Bowl was a huge step up in competition for Turner, but he more than held his own. He had a little trouble with speed rushers, but was never overpowered. Turner’s best chance to play early is at RT or even guard, but Turner has enough potential to eventually become a starting LT. Draft Projection: 3rd-4th round

14.) James Hurst, North Carolina (6’5, 296): Hurst is recovering from a gruesome broken leg he suffered in the Belk Bowl and may not be at full strength in 2014. Before the leg injury, Hurst had started 49 straight games at LT. He’s a powerful run blocker, but struggles in pass pro and needs to improve his technique if he is going to stay on the left side. Hurst won’t be able to play right away, but after some time to heal Hurst has potential to be a dominant RT and at worst should be a solid swing tackle with upside. Draft Projection: 4th-5th round

15.) Cameron Fleming, Stanford (6’6, 318): Powerful run blocker who struggles in pass protection.  Fleming projects as an interesting right tackle prospect who will probably take a year or two of development before he is ready for the starting lineup, but has long-term starter potential. Draft Projection: 4th-5th round

16.) Michael Schofield, Michigan (6’4, 303): Schofield stood out in Senior Bowl practices as a guy who can hold his own at either tackle or guard. He didn’t look dominant at either, but versatility like that has plenty of value. If you can fill two back-up spots with one guy that opens up another roster spot for more depth or a developmental player. Schofield should develop into at least a competent swing tackle if not a starting RT. Draft Projection: 4th-5th round
