1. Chris Lindstrom G
Lindstrom has done everything right up to this point. He played well in college. He had a nice showing after being invited to the Senior Bowl. He did well at the most recent NFL Combine and has done a nice job in his interviews.
Still, for some reason, he’s getting second-round grades. There still may be a chance that he sneaks in and has his name called at the end of the first round. We’ll have to see if that’s how things work out though.
2. Erik McCoy G/C
McCoy skipped his senior season at Texas A&M, and there are quite a few football minds who don’t think he’s made a mistake. Even at six-foot-four and 303 pounds, he got some oohs and ahhs at the most recent combine when he ran a 4.89 40-yard dash.
He’s smart, athletically gifted, and there’s a chance he’ll wind up sneaking into the latter part of the first round. He’d probably be picked a lot higher had he stayed another year, but either way, he figures to have a long future in the NFL.
