OG, Sua Opeta, Weber State

A former defensive tackle, this small-school sleeper stands at 6’4, 305 lbs, and was named an FCS-All American in back-to-back seasons, starting every game in that span at left tackle. A dominant combine performer, Opeta could benefit from adding some meat to his 6’4, 301 lbs frame and while he doesn’t have the technical fundamentals as some of the other names in this list do, he has every other box ticked. Opeta could be a leading practice squad candidate.


C, Keegan Render, Iowa

This 6’4, 307 lbs, center is versatile and comes out of a pro-style offense which is an immediate plus for the Eagles. He’s got frantically fast hand movement and while his footwork can get away from him at times, he has the IQ and impressively maintains blocks consistently when in pass-protection. For now, we can group Render with the other linemen in this crop, who could be dekeing it out for backup roles, with versatility being a real ace up his sleeve, after playing at both guard spots as well as center during his time at Iowa.
