Offensive line rankings

Offensive line class THE ELITE 1. Jordan Gross (Utah – 6-4 303 5.00) Martial arts specialist has a definite mean streak and surrendered up his last sack years ago to future 49ers end Andre Carter. 2. Eric Steinbach (Iowa – 6-6 297 4.91) Excellent speed and technical ability coupled with ability to shift between guard and tackle has elevated stock of former Ravens line coach Kirk Ferentz' protégé.

3. Kwame Harris (Stanford – 6-7 310 5.15)

Rising tackle prospect left college early, known for fluidity, balance and tremendous wingspan. Could get stronger and fill out more.

SECOND TIER

4. Jeff Faine (Notre Dame – 6-3 298 4.94)

Tenacious center has rare trait of reaching the second level to wall off linebackers. Technically adept in all areas.

 5 Wayne Hunter (Hawaii – 6-5 305 5.09)

Explosive strength (37 reps of 225), long arms and a nasty streak has intrigued franchises enough to push him up their draft boards.

6. George Foster (Georgia – 6-4 338 5.25)

Great athleticism and has lots of initial pop, footwork, but needs better dedication to conditioning, though. Visited Ravens.

 ON THE CUSP

7. Vince Manuwai (Hawaii – 6-2 304 5.14)

Powerful earth grader guard compared to Chicago Bears' Olin Kreutz. Has short arms and choppy footwork and interviewed with Baltimore at scouting combine.

8. Jon Stinchcomb (Georgia – 6-5 302 5.05)

Brother of Oakland Raiders blocker Matt Stinchcomb is steeped in fundamentals and weight room strength, but needs to utilize those advantages.

9. Montrae Holland (Florida State – 6-2 330 5.29)

Blocky, dominant run-blocking guard visited with the Ravens and made a good impression with personality, game film.

10. Derrick Dockery (Texas – 6-6 345 5.41)

Natural knee-bender could fit in well as a guard or anchor a right tackle spot.

BEST OF THE REST

Brett Williams (Florida State tackle); Tony Pashos (Illinois tackle); Ben Johnson (Wisconsin tackle); Al Johnson (Wisconsin center); Wade Smith (Memphis tackle)

SLEEPERS

Seth Wand (NW Missouri St.); Jeremy Bridges (Southern Miss.); Steve Sciullo (Marshall); Torrin Tucker (Southern Miss.); Reggie Wells (Clarion); Courtney Vanburen (Arkansas-Pine Bluff).
