Offensive Tackle Rankings 2023 NFL Draft

OFFENSIVE TACKLE RANKINGS 2023 NFL DRAFT

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 Northwestern’s Peter Skoronski and Paris Johnson from Ohio State.
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 315 pounds. He has proved himself as the 2022 season has progressed and has become the best pass blocker in the nation

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).
