CINCINNATI — The Bengals could take Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell with the fifth pick in the 2021 NFL Draft later this month.
The 20-year-old impressed scouts last week during his pro day. Sewell's size and athleticism was on full display.
He's clearly the top offensive lineman in this draft, but how does he compare to last year's loaded class of linemen? NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah put out a table comparing Sewell and Rashawn Slater to the best linemen in the 2020 draft class.

Sewell's arm length and wingspan are a tad shorter than most of the other prospects, but he was near the top in a few categories including weight and bench press.
It does give this year's rankings a bit more context. Sewell probably wouldn't have been the top tackle in the 2020 class. That doesn't mean the Bengals shouldn't take him with the fifth pick. Instead, it's a testament to how great the first four offensive tackles were as prospects last spring.
The Bengals are weighing their options at No. 5. Sewell and LSU wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase are the two favorites to be the pick. If they're both available, then the organization will be faced with a tough decision.
