2015 NFL Draft Rankings: Offensive Tackle

5 of 5

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

25.) Mickey Baucus, Arizona (6’7 | 305 | 5.33)

Scouting report – 4-year starter at left tackle who has ideal size and arm length. Baucus has performed well in pass pro with quick feet for his size. He struggled at times with counter moves and doesn’t provide much push in the run game, but he’s an underrated prospect who could develop into a solid swing lineman with increased strength.

Draft grade: 6th-7th round

26.) Andrew Donnal, Iowa (6’6 | 305 | 5.22)

Scouting report – Lacks NFL athleticism and strength but succeeds with a sound technique and understanding of blocking angles and leverage. Like most Iowa prospects, his footwork and hand placement are solid and make up for a lack of physical tools. Donnal doesn’t get much push in the run game but he is solid in pass pro. He has experience playing both guard and tackle and that versatility combined with his pass blocking skills should get Donnal drafted at some point on day 3.

Draft grade: 7th round

27.) Rob Crisp, North Carolina St (6’7 | 300 | 5.27) 

Scouting report – Has the size, athleticism, and footwork to be an NFL tackle, but Crisp has had trouble staying healthy for the Wolfpack. He has suffered a different injury every season, which will make it difficult for teams to risk a draft pick on Crisp but he has the talent to be an NFL swing tackle so some team may roll the dice late on day 3.

Draft grade: 7th round

28.) Terry Poole, San Diego St (6’5 | 310 | 5.24)

Scouting report – Has played both right and left tackle over the last two seasons and was productive at both. That versatility will be key for Poole to stick at the next level. He’s not exceptionally strong or athletic, but has good technique and is a smart player. Poole could end up as a back-up swing tackle who can start in a pinch on the right side at least.

Draft grade: 7th round – UFA

29.) Blaine Clausell, Mississippi St (6’7 | 315 | 5.37)

Scouting report – Good length, very long arms, and decent strength and athleticism, but lacks the foot speed to deal with speed rushers on the left side. Clausell has some balance issues and doesn’t offer much upside as either a run or pass blocker but could develop into a solid backup.

Draft grade: 7th round – UFA

30.) Jermaine Barton, Illinois St (6’7 | 315 | 5.38)

Scouting report – Former Miami Hurricane who improved his play and conditioning at ISU. Barton has started at right tackle the last two seasons and has been dominant against weaker competition in the Missouri Valley Conference. Barton’s technique is sloppy and he has balance issues, but moves very well for his size and has the strength and athleticism to play in the NFL. Barton is a development prospect who might need a few years of seasoning before he sees the field, but has the potential to be useful.

Draft grade: 7th round – UFA
