At least 10 NFL teams bringing Washington State guard Joe Dahl in for visits ahead of draft

THERE’S NO SHORTAGE of love being shown these days to Washington State offensive lineman Joe Dahl.’s Tony Pauline reports that at least 10 NFL teams are bringing him in for personal workouts ahead of the draft, which begins April 28.

In this column Friday, Pauline says Dahl is “building some momentum.” He said Dahl’s visit and workout schedule is loaded and includes stops with the 49ers, Chargers, Vikings, Jets, Patriots, Buccaneers, Eagles, Panthers, Ravens and Colts.

Dahl, an All-Pac-12 and second-team All-American selection this past season at left tackle, projects as a guard in the NFL and is widely believed to be a second- or third-round draft pick.

Pro Football Weekly rates him the No. 2 guard prospect in the draft, behind Vadal Alexander of LSU and just ahead of Stanford’s Joshua Garnett.

"Very good strength and bulk" PFW writes of the 6-4, 304-pound Spokane product. "Gets movement in the run game. Can make combination blocks and cleanly get to the second block. Good in space, can adjust on the moving hit a moving target. Physical player and a very good competitor, consistently looks to finish. Strong week at Senior Bowl."

Last month, ESPN analyst and former Cowboys personnel director Gil Brandt dubbed Dahl one of his 10 favorite players in the draft, in part because he believes Dahl could play guard, center or tackle.
