2009 NFL Draft lines might be focused on quarterbacks and running backs but in the NFL you build from the inside out with offensive and defensive lineman.
Let’s take a look at the Top 10 offensive linemen in NFL Draft odds.
2009 NFL Draft lines now have Baylor’s Jason Smith as the top prospect among offensive linemen and many NFL Draft odds boards have him as the top player, period. Smith had a great combine and there is an outside chance Detroit takes him at #1 overall although they will probably choose Georgia’s Matthew Stafford. That means Smith should go #2 in 2009 NFL Draft lines to the St. Louis Rams.
There is a little bit of debate as to who the second best offensive lineman in 2009 NFL Draft lines is. You can make a case for three players so let’s look at each of them. Virginia’s Eugene Monroe has shot up the NFL Draft odds board and could easily go in the Top 5 of the draft. Mississippi’s Michael Oher is right with Monroe in terms of 2009 NFL Draft lines but has slipped a bit in recent weeks and probably won’t go in the Top 10. Alabama’s Andre Smith was thought of as a #1 pick a few months ago and now he probably won’t go in the Top 10 in 2009 NFL Draft lines. He showed up at the combine out of shape and then left. It soured many NFL teams on him despite his talent. The fifth rated prospect in 2009 NFL Draft lines is Arizona’s Eben Britton. He has gotten great reviews for his play at left tackle, a position the NFL craves.
Just outside of the Top 5 in 2009 NFL Draft lines and perhaps better than any of them is California’s Alex Mack. The problem for Mack is that he is a center and they are not drafted as high as tackles. He is a great pick in 2009 NFL Draft lines and a future starter in the NFL. Another starter right away in 2009 NFL Draft lines is likely to be South Carolina’s Jamon Meredith. He has a ton of experience and should start next season somewhere. At #8 is Oklahoma’s Duke Robinson. He is a physical specimen who should go in the first round.
The ninth best prospect is Oregon center Max Unger. He is listed by some NFL Draft odds experts as a tackle prospect as well. Rounding out the Top 10 in 2009 NFL Draft lines is Connecticut’s William Beatty.
