NFL Draft 2014: Ranking the Most Versatile Offensive Linemen
Marcio Jose Sanchez

The 2014 NFL draft is full of trench warriors on offense who excel in a particular area of blocking or at their specific position.  

But offensive linemen who have the experience and/or skill set to play multiple positions are becoming more valuable every year.

With the frequent injuries that often occur to an offense's front five, combined with the challenge of fielding the most effective 53-man roster, NFL teams could be placing greater value on linemen who can give them increased flexibility.

Here's a look at the 10 offensive linemen in the 2014 NFL draft who bring the most versatility and experience to the table.


How They're Ranked

Considered in these rankings were four factors:

  • Experience at multiple positions
  • Effectiveness at each position
  • Projected ability to translate experience/effectiveness to the NFL
  • Overall skill level and draft projection

Some of these prospects might not be projected as top overall picks, but their ability to wear many different hats gives them an edge.  Others might not have much experience at a secondary position, but their skill sets and overall talent level suggest they could successfully make the switch at the next level.

All four of the factors listed above are rolled into their final overall ranking.
