Offensive Tackle Rankings 2023 NFL Draft

OFFENSIVE TACKLE RANKINGS 2023 NFL DRAFT

As it currently sits in August of 2022 the 2023 NFL Draft offensive tackle class looks somewhat underwhelming, especially when compared to the bumper crop we've seen over the last couple of years.

The group is led by Paris Johnson from Ohio State and Northwestern’s Peter Skoronski.
Five-star recruit Johnson is the more athletic of the two possessing massive upside - he’s also got all the measurables you could ever wish for at the position. He however is far from the finished product and will likely need time to develop. Skoronski is the opposite, he is the perfect technician who does everything well – and quite likely would be ready to start in the pros - even now. His measurables limit his upside though as they are only average for an outside offensive line player – he stands at 6-4 and weighs in at just 294 pounds.

After the top two, there is a bit of a drop-off - although what it lacks in elite talent it more than makes up for in quantity. We currently have a first or second grade on another eight prospects in this year's class, with the best being Miami’s Zion Nelson and Georgia’s Broderick Jones, with the most intriguing player being Ohio State’s man mountain and number two tackle Dawand Jones (6-8 and 360lbs).

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.
