2014 NFL Draft offensive tackle rankings

Kevin C. Cox

Some of the top tackles disappointed in 2013, which opens the door for a strong group of seniors to move up.

Once considered to be another strong offensive tackle class, the 2014 NFL Draft's top tackles struggled a bit in 2013. Texas A&M's Jake Matthews was dominant as a senior and looked like the best offensive lineman in the country this season. After that, plenty was up for debate.

Auburn's Greg Robinson takes over the No. 2 spot in our rankings after he decided to enter the draft as a redshirt sophomore. He passes up Cyrus Kouandjio, Taylor Lewan and Antonio Richardson, all of whom had up-and-down seasons to close out their college careers.

Deeper down the list, a solid group of seniors will be jockeying for position in Mobile, Ala. during Senior Bowl practices. Ju'Wuan James, Jack Mewhort, Morgan Moses, Billy Turner and Seantrel Henderson will all be among the offensive tackles at the postseason all-star game. The senior class is deep at the position, so it should be an interesting week of practice.

Here's our full list of 24 tackles.
