Ranking the Top Offensive Tackle Prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft

Ikem Ekwonu – North Carolina State

What do NFL scouts and GM’s love most about prospects these days? Versatility. Ikem Ekwonu’s position flexibility of being able to line up at either left tackle or left guard plays a big part in why he is mocked to potentially go in the first five picks. He has a really good understanding of pad level and is very quick off the ball, which is why many like him as a guard. Regardless of how the Panthers see him, if he’s still on the board, he’s got to be the pick in my opinion.

Evan Neal – Alabama

For as big as Neal is, you would think mobility and lateral movement would be an issue for him. That’s not the case. He moves around extremely well for his size and probably much better than he should. In fact, he has elite athleticism and that is why he will stick at tackle in the NFL instead of kicking inside to guard.
