Cp4. . Troy Fautanu. 521. . . OT. player. Troy Fautanu. 4

Troy Fautanu, the offensive guard from Washington, has been a driving force behind the team's success this season. His consistency and ability to create space for the running backs have been a significant asset for the team. Fautanu's skills will likely make him a top-10 pick in the NFL draft.

Season Statistics:

  • Total Blocks: 36
  • Total Tackles: 49
  • Total Sacks Allowed: 2

Ideal Draft Position: 

Fautanu is the top OG in the Draft, but seeing him in a top-10 pick is unlikely. The Seahawks at 13 or the Cardinals with their 15th pick is possible, but I like the Steelers at 23 or the 49ers at 30. 

Cp5. 5. Walter Camp All-American. . OT. Walter Camp All-AmericaN. JC Latham. JC Latham. player. 523

JC Latham, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

Alabama's offensive tackle, JC Latham, has been a rock-solid presence on the team. His impeccable performance this season is owed to his tactfulness and strength. Latham's ability to protect his quarterback makes him a valuable asset for any NFL team.

Season Statistics:

  • Total Blocks: 42
  • Total Tackles: 52
  • Total Sacks Allowed: 1

Ideal Draft Position: 

The Titans at six may like him after last year's first-round pick Peter Skoronski looked like a bust; then there is the Chargers at tenth or slipping to the Colts at 21.
