Previewing The Combine: Offensive and Defensive Line

David Molk is parted of a loaded center class in Indy

Here is the full list of OG participants;
OG Mark Asper-Oregon
OG David DeCastro-Stanford*
OG Adam Gettis-Iowa
OG Rishaw Johnson-Cal(Pa)
OG Josh Leribeus-SMU
OG Joe Looney-Wake Forest
OG Antoine McClain-Clemson
OG Ryan Miller-Colorado
OG Lucas Nix-Pitt
OG Quentin Saulsberry-Mississippi State
OG Andrew Tiller-Syracuse
OG Johnnie Troutman-Penn State
OG Desmond Wynn-Rutgers
OG Kevin Zeitler-Wisconsin
*Early Entrant into the 2012 NFL Draft

Here is our estimate at who will be the top workout warriors from the OG position:
40 Yard Dash-Joe Looney 5.07
3 Cone Drill-David DeCastro 7.25
Short Shuttle- Ryan Miller 4.62
Bench Press-Andrew Tiller 35

The OG class, unlike the OT class, isn’t all that deep you have a few mid to late rounders who could bloom amongst those at the combine but not a ton. Andrew Tiller and Josh Leribeus are the two top guys who fit that mold for us. Day 3 guys who could become effective players.

We won’t learn much about this OG class from the combine, it’s just not designed for them to do well in. The 40 times and athletic testing mean almost nothing and the positional drills with no pads are very difficult to evaluate.

One guy who we think many teams will want to speak with is former Ole Miss OG Rishaw Johnson. He has some off the field concerns that teams will want to address. On the field he was a beast in Division II last year.

Here is the full list of OC participants;
OC Phillip Blake-Baylor
OC Michael Brewster-Ohio St
OC Garth Gerhart-Arizona State
OC Ben Jones-UGA
OC Peter Konz-Wisconsin*
OC David Molk-Michigan
*Early Entrant into the 2012 NFL Draft

Here is our estimate at who will be the top workout warriors from the OC position:
40 Yard Dash-Peter Konz-5.15
3 Cone Drill-Peter Konz 7.58
Short Shuttle-Peter Konz 4.59
Bench Press-David Molk-30

Much like the situation with the OG class, this combine won’t tell us a ton about the OC’s. That’s an unfortunate truth given how good this entire group of OC’s are.

The one thing that some scouts may want to see if the wonderlic results, there is a theory that you want your OC to score higher on the test because they make many of the line calls.

Defensive Line prospects will get their official measurements on Saturday, February 25th, and then do their workouts on Monday, February 27th.
