Three Draft Sleepers at Every Position: Interior Offensive Line

They might not be the sexiest of draft selections, but they sure are important. This is an interesting draft for interior offensive linemen, since there are some solid players compared to past drafts.

Again, it may not be the most thrilling position, but if your favourite team takes a steal at guard or centre, would you be mad? Let’s get into it.

Sean Welsh, Iowa

Here’s a draft tip for you: if there’s an offensive lineman from Iowa, there’s a good chance he’s good. Iowa has produced some quality offensive linemen, such as Pro Bowlers Marshal Yanda and Brandon Scherff. Welsh’s teammate, James Daniels, is likely to go early in the draft, which is a testament to this Iowa program.

Projected Round: 4th Round

Projected Team: Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have a decent offensive line, but they could benefit from a solid interior offensive lineman.

Bradley Bozeman, Alabama

If you can start for Alabama for multiple seasons, I’m intrigued instantly. Prior to Bozeman starting, the Crimson Tide had Ryan Kelly, and Bozeman has been a good replacement. Bozeman has the potential to start in the NFL, if given the opportunity.

Projected Round: 5th Round

Projected Team: Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati needs to further improve their weak offensive line. If Andy Dalton and Joe Mixon are to succeed, they need adequate protection.

Alabama C Bradley Bozeman.

Tyrone Crowder, Clemson

This guy is truly underrated. He can play guard at an elite level and under the right system, can truly blossom into a true pro.

Projected Round: 5th round

Projected Team: Dallas Cowboys

This feels like a Dallas Cowboys draft steal. In particular, the Cowboys know how to find a steal in the offensive line. With that one hole at guard, maybe Crowder is the missing piece for the Cowboys to have the best offensive line in football.
