Luke Easterling's 2016 NFL Draft G Rankings

My full offensive guard rankings for the 2016 NFL Draft.

RANK | NAME | SCHOOL | HEIGHT | WEIGHT | CLASS | GRADE

1. Cody Whitehair | Kansas State | 6'4" | 301 | RS Senior | 2nd Round

Whitehair was the Wildcats' left tackle, but he projects better as a guard at the next level, and could even get some looks at center. He won't wow you in one particular area, but he's a balanced prospect who is effective in every facet of the game, and his versatility only makes him more valuable.

2. Joshua Garnett | Stanford | 6'4" | 312 | Senior | 2nd Round

Well-built with the ideal frame for an NFL guard, Garnett is a powerful run blocker who can dominate at the point of attack, as well as use that same strength to stifle interior pass-rushers. He's not the most athletic prospect at this position, but he'll be an instant starter whose strengths will translate well at the next level.

3. Landon Turner | North Carolina | 6'4" | 330 | RS Senior | 3rd Round

If you're looking for an old-school, smash-mouth run blocker, you'll love Turner. He puts his massive frame to good use, overwhelming defenders as soon as he engages, and rarely gets overpowered. He doesn't have the athleticism to quickly get to the second level, but he's quick enough to handle explosive interior defenders and will thrive in a run-heavy offense.

4. Vadal Alexander | LSU | 6'5" | 326 | Senior | 3rd Round

One of many versatile players in this group, Alexander has plenty of starting experience at both tackle and guard against top competition, which NFL teams will certainly love. He was inconsistent at times, but he's got a solid balance of strength and athleticism, and his ability to play multiple positions will give him added value.

5. Christian Westerman | Arizona State | 6'3" | 298 | RS Senior | 3rd Round

He may be considered a bit undersized at less than 300 pounds, but Westerman is a weight-room junky who plays with more power than his frame might suggest. What he lacks in bulk and brute strength he makes up for with quick hands and consistent technique, which should allow him to be successful early in his NFL career in the right system.

6. Spencer Drango | Baylor | 6'6" | 315 | RS Senior | 3rd Round

7. Connor McGovern | Missouri | 6'4" | 306 | RS Senior | 4th Round

8. Sebastian Tretola | Arkansas | 6'4" | 314 | RS Senior | 4th Round

9. Denver Kirkland | Arkansas | 6'4" | 335 | Junior | 4th Round

10. Isaac Seumalo | Oregon State | 6'4" | 303 | RS Junior | 5th Round

11. Graham Glasgow | Michigan | 6'6" | 307 | RS Senior | 5th Round

12. Eric Mac Lain | Clemson | 6'4" | 315 | RS Senior | 5th Round

13. Rees Odhiambo | Boise State | 6'4" | 314 | RS Senior | 5th Round

14. Joe Thuney | North Carolina State | 6'5" | 304 | RS Senior | 6th Round

15. Parker Ehringer | Cincinnati | 6'6" | 310 | RS Senior | 6th Round

16. Ted Karras | Illinois | 6'4" | 308 | RS Senior | 6th Round

17. Kyle Friend | Temple | 6'0" | 295 | Senior | 7th Round

18. Jordan Rigsbee | California | 6'4" | 305 | RS Senior | 7th Round

19. Jordan Walsh | Iowa | 6'3" | 290 | RS Senior | 7th Round

20. Darrell Green | San Diego State | 6'3" | 321 | RS Senior | 7th Round
