In almost every draft, there is a prototypical left tackle, who everyone believes is going to vacate the board in the top five picks. Teams at the top of the draft usually have line issues, so they jump at the chance to obtain a franchise left tackle.
This year, many mock drafts don't have an offensive lineman going in the top ten picks. No tackle has solidified his spot as the consensus number one lineman in the draft, which is going to make this draft very interesting from a line perspective.
Last year, we saw Trent Williams skyrocket up the boards and become the first lineman taken. At this time last year, Anthony Davis wasn't expected to be drafted between the end of the first round and early second, but ended up going to the 49ers with their first pick in the draft.
