Super Size Me: Big, Strong Guards in the 2014 NFL Draft

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Last offseason, the Buffalo Bills let left guard Andy Levitre go and failed to amply replace him. Doug Legursky and Colin Brown proved to be below average starters, and the offensive line, especially the interior, got pushed into the backfield enough to neutralize most of running back C.J. Spiller’s game-breaking ability.

Also needing to take pressure off of EJ Manuel, finding solid pieces to fill out the offensive line is of utmost importance to the Bills this offseason.

Some people have suggested drafting an offensive tackle like Auburn’s Greg Robinson or Texas A&M’s Jake Matthews and shifting Cordy Glenn to right tackle or left guard, but most specifically, the Bills need to find someone who can fill the need at left guard. Based on Doug Marrone’s style of offense, the Bills are likely to look for a versatile offensive lineman who can block with power, but also has the athleticism to pull and get to the second level to help free running back C.J. Spiller.

The 2014 senior crop of defensive ends is full of hybrid type players who may project to play 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker at the next level. I based these rankings off of the positions these players primarily play in college, so all of the players ranked currently play defensive end.

The class doesn’t have any sure-fire top ten players but there are plenty of players with starter upside.

Texas A&M faced Arkansas in a tough Southeastern Conference matchup on Sept. 28 that turned into a high-scoring affair.

Led by the redshirt sophomore connection of quarterback Johnny Manziel and wide receiver Mike Evans in the passing game, Texas A&M came out victorious 45-33. While Manziel and Evans garnered most of the attention with a solid game, there were many players in the matchup with potential to play on Sundays.

Trent Richardson

Trent Richardson has looked like a man amongst boys thus far this season

Alabama and Arkansas kicked off this past Saturday in a SEC tilt that saw Arkansas exposed for being less than what they were last year and saw Alabama again dominate their opponent. At some point you have to wonder if anybody can even stay with Alabama let alone beat them. Here is a look at how the prospects faired for each team.
