    Richner: Top OGs

    Last Updated: 10/14/2014 10:06 AM ET

    Top 5 Guards
    The offensive guard position is one of depth and strength in this year's draft class. With David DeCastro, Kevin Zeitler and Cordy Glenn heading the list, the teams who need interior line help can find it in the first few rounds of the draft.

    Top 5 Offensive Guards
    1. David DeCastro (Stanford)
    2. Kevin Zeitler (Wisconsin)
    3. Cordy Glenn (Georgia)
    4. Brandon Washington (Miami)
    5. Kelechi Osemele (Iowa State)

    Guard Overview: David DeCastro from Stanford is clearly the best guard in this year's draft class. He is being compared to other top NFL guards such as Carl Nicks and Steve Hutchinson. DeCastro is a road grater on the offensive line when it comes to run blocking and he can handle top interior pass rushers with no problems. In a pinch, he can be a backup center in case of emergencies... Kevin Zeitler never gave up a sack in four years at Wisconsin. At 6'4" and 315 lbs., he has great size and ability to hold his own in the NFL. Coming from Wisconsin, he will be prepared and able to handle the rigors of an NFL season... Cordy Glenn would normally be the top interior lineman in most season's draft classes. At 6'6" and 345 lbs., he is a massive young man who does not get pushed back into the pocket. Will he be able to maintain a decent weight so he can continue with his ability to be an effective pull/trap blocker in the NFL? Long-term, he would probably be best suited not to play in a zone-blocking scheme for that reason... Brandon Washington is a stout, hard-nosed lineman who has a high football IQ. He only had three penalties against him in 2011... Kelechi Osemele is a raw player, but one who has shown signs of taking his game to the next level. Osemele is a wrecking ball as a run blocker, cleaning out anyone or anything that gets in his way. With some seasoning and coaching, he could turn out to be a quality starting offensive guard in the NFL.
