Kelechi Osemele, OT, Iowa State

Osemele has a ton of potential and could project almost anywhere along the offensive line in the NFL. He's built like a brick wall at 6'6" and 347 pounds. Has very long arms, good athleticism, and is very powerful. He'll likely end up at right tackle since he's just not quick enough to seal the edge if he played on the left.

The bottom line here is that Osemele is a very raw prospect who at times struggles to maintain technique. Since he's so strong, there are times when he doesn't set his feet properly or extend his arms to initiate contact. He needs to remember to stay low, bend his knees, and absorb contact.

That said, the sky is the limit here and given his penchant for both pass and run blocking, NFL teams are going to love this guy. His mean streak (something all offensive linemen must have) is unquestioned. He is looking to take guys out every play. Osemele's elite size, strength, and bulk are all going to pass the eye-ball test for scouts and he's going to catch a lot of attention because of it.
