Doug Free, OT, Northern Illinois

At 6-6, Free is very tall for an offensive lineman, much less for any football player. He has bulked up quite a bit in the last year and has the frame to get even bigger. And bigger means better in the NFL. Free is still a solid prospect just as he is right now. He is a quick, agile tackle and he posted a 4.19 in the forty-yard dash at the combine. Free is also as experienced as any player in the draft, having started from day one as a freshman at Northern Illinois. Almost none of that experience, however, came against big-time competition. As such, it might take Free a bit longer than most to adjust to life at the next level. Free qualifies as a sleeper heading into the draft and he could turn out to be a solid contributor in a few years. Scouts compare him to former NIU tackle and current Colts' starter Ryan Diem. Look for Free to come off the board in round three.
