Offensive Guard Rankings 2023 NFL Draft

GUARD PROSPECT RANKING 2023 NFL DRAFT

We considered lumping all interior line prospects into a single group but ultimately thought it would be useful separating the guards and centers out.
Guard is probably the least glamorous position on the team and so even a particularly special crop escapes the attention they deserve, however, this group looks pretty pedestrian and at least for now, and contains no obvious standout elite prospects.

It's difficult to pick out the best from this bunch, but we currently view South Carolina’s Andrew Vorhees, Cooper Beebe from Kansas State, Layden Robinson from Texas A&M, and Florida’s D’Cyrus Torrence as the prospects with the greatest chance of success at the pro level.

Beebe is a versatile player who has played tackle and guard, but at just 6-3 he’ll be looked at as an interior player in the pros. He has exceptional quickness for his size and possesses a similar level of power to his game.
Robinson hoping to follow in the footsteps of teammate Kenyon Green maybe the most explosive and athletic in this class although we don’t view him as quite the prospect as Green although still has the potential to be considered a first-round pick.

YOUR NFL GM VS. AUTODRAFT

Ever wondered what would happen if your favorite team just went into the draft without doing any independent research, without studying hours of tape, or even listening to team scouts? Well, after many years of watching NFL teams making numerous questionable ‘reaches’ in the draft, and totally ignoring the prevailing wisdom - we decided to re-examine all your team’s drafts over the last ten years.
The results are (sometimes) interesting – but what it really does show, is that on the whole - NFL teams would have done better by putting their feet up and just switching on autodraft.
Take a look, we have every team's draft since 2011 rated.
