The offensive tackle class took the spotlight on the first day of workouts on Saturday at the NFL Combine with several outstanding performances. The tackle class for the NFL Draft 2010 could provide as many as six #1 selections in April especially after many top performances in the workout drills in Indy. Tackles Russell Okung of Oklahoma St, Brian Bulaga of Iowa, Trent Williams of Oklahoma and Bruce Campbell of Maryland had huge workouts that guarantee each of them a first round grade. Okung has been our #1 tackle prospect all year and probably guaranteed himself a top ten selection with a fine performance. He ran a 5.17 time with 38 reps in the lifting at over 6’5” and 307 lbs.
Brian Bulaga of Iowa came in at 6'5” and 314 lbs. and ran a 5.25 time. He did 26 reps in the lifting and looked sharp in the agility drills. Trent Williams is one of the more versatile linemen in this class and may move into the top ten off his impressive effort. He ran a fast 4.88 time and was impressive in the agility drills. He also had a 34” vertical leap and did 23 reps in the lifting. He came in at 6’5” 315 lbs.
Bruce Campbell came in at over 6’6” and 314 lbs. and had the best performance of the first day with a 4.85 time, 32” vertical leap and 34 reps in the lifting. He is a cut tackle who entered the draft as a junior after only 17 college starts. He has super long arms of 36 ¼ arms and is the best athlete at this deep position. His overall performance moved him into the first round and maybe into the top 20 selections overall.
