Get ready to hear plenty about the deficiencies in this year’s tackle class. As always, starters will emerge from the players selected, but there is not an overwhelming number of obvious candidates, nor much in the way of top-10 talent.

Robinson really has been better than the narrative would suggest this season. Case in point: His work earlier this season against Texas A&M’s Myles Garrett, who is almost unanimously the 2017 draft’s No. 1 prospect. Robinson projects as a long-term answer at left tackle, provided he continues to develop his defenses against speed rushers—he already plays with power. Ramczyk has been excellent this season on the left side, too, and he moves extremely well for his size. More people are taking notice of Moton now that Western Michigan is headed to a prestigious bowl game. He's a right tackle/guard prospect. The wild cards are McGlinchey and Johnson, who face decisions on their futures after this season. McGlinchey could fly into the first round if he goes; Johnson has been among the more disappointing prospects this year.​
