The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Top 10 Offensive Tackles in the 2023 NFL Draft: Number one might surprise you!

Top 10 Offensive Tackles in the 2023 NFL Draft: Number one might surprise you!

Publish Date: 03/07/2023
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Offensive tackle is a position most teams need an upgrade at. This draft class has seven tackles that could immediately impact the team that selects them. These rankings were taken from watching the film of the players and looking at the RAS scores which help determine which player should be selected higher.

10) Jordan Morgan, Arizona

Jordan Morgan had his 2022 season cut short due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament tear. This same injury makes it difficult for Morgan to declare for the 2023 NFL Draft. However, that decision is still being made as of this writing. If he does declare, Morgan is a possible top tackle in the waiting.

While the Wildcats blocker is still in high demand on the operational side, he has an enticing combination of physical tools. At 6’6″ and 320 pounds, he is a strong lineman and an athletic athlete. If he declares for the draft he could be a steal for a patient team that doesn’t rush him.

9) Jaelyn Duncan, Maryland

Jaelyn Dunphy has a tape that is more up-and-down than most prospects, especially those with multiple years of experience. The upside is that Duncan will be on many of the top 10 offensive tackle lists.

Duncan is the most athletic of all the tackles in the 2023 NFL Draft. At 6’6″ and 320 pounds, Duncan has an NFL frame. However, he is incredibly light on his feet and shows incredible bursts and recovery. Although he needs to improve his hand use, the foundation is there.

He needs to go some place with an excellent line coach.

8) Matthew Bergeron, Syracuse

Few tackles had to go through the same rigors as Syracuse’sย Matthew Bergeron this year. Three potential first-rounders he had to against were Myles Murphy, Jared Verse and Isaiah Foskey. He showed his potential, even though he couldn’t escape without some issues against these elite edge rushers.

Bergeron, a Canadian native, has some of the best short-area athleticism within the 2023 NFL Draft OT team. Bergeron is one of those energetic, tackle-ready movers you rarely see. Bergeron can become more disciplined and more decisive with his technique, but he is still able to match any opponent.

7) Tyler Steen, Alabama

Alabama’s history of producing NFL-quality offensive tackle talent is long and illustrious.ย Tyler Steen is unlikely to be the Crimson Tide’s next first-round selection, but he may start games down the line.

Steen is 6’5” and 315 pounds. He also has NFL length and size. His athleticism and speed off the line are impressive.ย While he can play with greater control and less leverage at times, his flashes of balance are enticing for developers.

6) Blake Freeland, BYU

Blake Freeland stands tall at 6’8” and a massive 305 pounds. Freeland is one of the few tackles who fit that mold. His rare power ability, amplified by his athleticism and high-end athleticism, makes him an excellent tackle.

Freeland is tall, but he struggles with leverage and pad level. He doesn’t have a lot of hip flexibility to counter this. He can become a great starter and have the top-end qualities he seeks with more technical training. Freeland will be a steal in the second round.

5) Anton Harrison, Oklahoma Sooners

Anton Harrison has been consistently listed as an offensive tackle in the top five, but the consensus may still underrate him. Harrison is ranked number one to me among the top 10 offensive tackles, which I based on his 2022 tape.

Harrison, 6’5′ and 315 pounds, passes the eye test. He also has the matching ability and burst range and puller skills. Harrison goes further and adds to his appeal by using independent hand usage, composed feet, leverage maintenance, and a gnawing physique. The one knock, and it’s a huge knock his arm length, that limits him as a tackle, but if that position doesn’t work out he will be a pro bowl guard.

Harrison will be an immediate starter in the NFL; he has a shot at being special.

4) Darnell Wright, Tennessee Volunteers

A former five-star recruit, Wright is a massive spectacle at 6’6″ and 335 pounds. It’s almost impossible to believe that he is so large for a human. But then, you see him move and use his calculated, violent hands to force defenders to submission. He can keep the right side in check at the next level. His RAS score is 9.74, is the number one right tackle prospect in this draft and will start immediately.

3) Peter Skoronski, Northwestern

He is a top-ranked collegiate performer and has a lot of athleticism.ย His size has caused polarization.

Skoronski’s lack of length can limit his power and make it challenging to fight larger defenders. Skoronski’s unique ability to keep his leverage so consistent is rare. His smooth footwork allows him to have a stable platform. Skoronski can be a solid starter in multiple spots on the offensive line.

2) Broderick Jones, Georgia

Jones is another tackle with a five-star pedigree. Jones, 6’4″ and 315 lbs, uniquely combines natural leverage and proportional height. Jones is a strong pointer, a fast finisher, and explosive in space. Jones will have a long NFL career.

1) Paris Johnson, Ohio State Buckeyes

Johnson may not be as clean as one would like, but he does have all the tools he needs. Johnson is the most explosive tackle in this class with over 35 inches of arms and elite power potential. He is extremely flexible, alert, and persistent in both phases.
