Despite dominating at left tackle for Notre Dame in 2020, the NFL Draft Bible views former Irish star Liam Eichenberg as the second best right tackle prospect in the draft class.
Eichenberg started 38 consecutive games at left tackle for Notre Dame, and he hasn't allowed a sack since his fifth start, which came back on Sept. 29, 2018 against Stanford. That's a span of 33 games without allowing a sack.
According to Pro Football Focus, in the last two seasons the Irish left tackle has not allowed a single sack and has given up just four total hits on the quarterback in 951 pass snaps. PFF also gave Eichenberg a higher grade in 2020 than it gave Ronnie Stanley back in 2015.
Eichenberg's outstanding 2020 campaign earned him consensus All-American honors, first-team All-ACC honors and he was selected by the ACC coaches and defensive coordinators as the Jacobs Blocker Award winner, which goes to the best blocker in the league.
He won that award of Virginia Tech left tackle Christian Darrisaw, who is getting ranked much higher than Eichenberg ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft.
