NFL DRAFT PREVIEW
COLLEGE: Michigan State Spartans
HT/WT: 6-6 / 325 lbs.
PROJECTION: 1st Round
Sad to see Conklin leave a year early but he needed to. His stock is at the highest point and that will earn him a lot of money when day one of the draft comes around. On the field Conklin has the size and strength to play at the next level the question will be if he’s athletic enough to be a left tackle or more suited to play on the right side. There is some technique work needed in pass protection as he will not be able to survive only on pure brute strength. But in the end, Conklin will be a great success story going from no scholarship offers out of high school to first round pick.
