Draft insider Tony Pauline ranks FSU senior T Cameron Erving as the ACC's No. 2 overall prospect.
Erving checks in behind teammate Jameis Winston in Pauline's rankings, but both have a first-round grade attached to their names. The only other ACC prospect with a first-round projection via Pauline is Clemson edge rusher Vic Beasley. The next best offensive lineman ranked is redshirt senior tackle Trevor Clemmings out of Pitt, who received a third-round tag. Aug 15 - 11:44 AM

Florida State senior T Cameron Erving is in a "position to be a top-five selection in next year's draft," according to CBS Sports' Derek Stephens.

"As a run-blocker, Erving displays the toughness and aggression that made him an impact performer on the other side of the football as he works to finish opponents with strong hands and impressive natural power in his lower half," wrote Stephens. "However, he also possesses the light feet and fluidity to thwart some of the nations best edge rushers as was evident in his shutout performance against fellow top 2015 draft prospect Vic Beasley (DE, Clemson) last season." The 6-foot-6, 302-pound senior "needs to become a more consistent technician," according to the analyst, who believes Erving's footwork can get sloppy. Erving also must eliminate a propensity to bend at the waist.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks ranks Florida State senior T Cameron Erving as his No. 2 tackle.

"The 6-6, 302-pound senior is a dancing bear on the edge, exhibiting outstanding balance and body control on the perimeter. He moves defenders off the ball with ease, yet is nimble enough to shadow elusive rushers on the edges. With another year to master the fundamentals and footwork at the position, Erving should be well positioned to make a run at the top spot by season's end," Brooks wrote. Evaluators like the fact that Erving has the size and athleticism they look for in elite tackles at the next level. The Florida State prospect has good hand strength as well, which could help him on his quest to be one of the top tackles off the board in the 2015 draft.

ESPN's Mel Kiper did not rank Florida State senior T Cameron Erving as one of his top 25 prospects for the 2015 draft.

It's a puzzling omission, but it's not as though Kiper forgot about Jameis Winston's blind side protector -- Erving was listed as one of his honorable mentions. Two of four writers asked to predict the highest drafted senior in the 2015 NFL Draft earlier this week chose Erving. Gil Brandt believes he's a possible top 10 pick. As for Kiper, he wrote: "[Ervin is] an experienced tackle prospect who could have entered the mix in 2014 but will help make the Noles' O-line really good in 2014."

Florida State senior T Cameron Erving went No. 3 in a mock draft between writers Bryan Fischer, Chase Goodbread and Mike Huguenin to create a starting 22.

The mock draft wasn't a projection of a future NFL draft, but rather a hypothetical dispersal based on 2014 collegiate production alone. Erving was the only "first round" non-QB, going after Marcus Mariota (Oregon) and Jameis Winston (Florida State). USC DT Leonard Williams, Nebraska DE Randy Gregory, and Texas A&M OT Cedric Ogbuehi were the second-round selections.

Two of four writers asked to predict the highest drafted senior in the 2015 NFL Draft chose Florida State T Cameron Erving.

Mike Huguenin and Gil Brandt went with Erving, while Chase Goodbread sided with Iowa T Brandon Scherff and Bryan Fischer foresaw Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi. Brandt loves the athletic ability of Erving, a former defensive tackle. "I'll go with Erving because I think he has the highest upside," Huguenin said when explaining why he predicted Erving over Ogbuehi and Scherff. "This will be just his third season as an offensive lineman, and he already has made great strides. He is a former defensive lineman, and he plays offensive tackle with that type of mentality. When he is at his best, he is unbeatable off the edge."
May 21 - 10:39 PM's Gil Brandt believes Florida State Senior T Cameron Erving could be a potential high draft pick in the 2015 draft.

"If you have any questions about his abilities, check out his performance last September against Pittsburgh's Aaron Donald, who was drafted in the first round this year by the St. Louis Rams," Brandt wrote. The once converted defensive lineman was named First Team All-ACC for protecting Jameis Winston's blind side.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes if certain junior LTs declare for the, seven prospects at the position could be selected in the first-round.

Kiper currently has five in his top-25, including Jake Matthews, Taylor Lewan, Cyrus Kouandjio, Brandon Scherff, and Greg Robinson. The final name is an interesting addition, since the Auburn redshirt sophomore has not received a lot of attention. Kiper previously ranked FSU's Cameron Erving very highly.

ESPN's Mel Kiper held firm with Florida State junior T Cameron Erving's ranking as the No. 9 overall prospect in the 2013 class.

"I wrote in May that Erving was one of the darlings among evaluators I'd spoken with, and now that I've been able to go back and see a lot of him, I can see why," Kiper writes. "He moves so easily, has good instincts and should be more comfortable in 2013. Could challenge the top tackles in the draft class." This puts Erving at the fifth prospect at the position, ahead of Tennessee's Antonio Richardson.

FSU junior T Cameron Erving ranks as ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper's No. 10 player in the 2014 class.

Erving ranks as the No. 4 offensive tackle behind Texas A&M's Jake Matthews, Alabama's Cyrus Kouandjio, and Michigan's Taylor Lewan. Last season was Erving's first year as an offensive tackle after switching from the defensive line. He immediately started on the left side opposite Menelik Watson. Erving has ability, but his technique needs plenty of refinement. "He moves so easily, has good instincts and held down left tackle pretty well for the Seminoles last year even as he continues to figure things out. Could challenge the top tackles in the draft class," Kiper writes.

Florida State junior T Cameron Erving returned to the field on Monday after being held out of practice for a few days.

Head coach Jimbo Fisher insisted they were only resting Erving, who had a "couple of nicks and knacks" that focred him to the sideline. The junior, who started every game at left tackle last season after switching from the defensive line, was immediately re-inserted with the first team. He could really emerge as a top two round pick this season.

NFL scouts are already buzzing about Florida State junior T Cameron Erving, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Erving is a former defensive tackle, but started all 14 games opposite Menelik Watson at left tackle. "He has the size, frame and length needed to be an edge protector and has the foot agility to handle speed rushers," Brugler writes. "Erving used his competitive nature on defense to swarm the pocket, but now he shows the same aggressive attitude on offense to eliminate defenders as a blocker."

Florida State is expected to start two inexperienced players at T, with sophomore Cameron Erving on the left side and JUCO transfer Menelik Watson on the right.

Prior to this season, Erving had never played a down of football on offense since he is a former defensive tackle and Watson had only started eight games in his life. Watson previously played basketball at Marist College. "They’ll both be nervous as crap," head coach Jimbo Fisher said. "They’re extremely athletic for big guys. Very athletic. Extremely big. Extremely long – there’s a difference between being big and long. They bring both."
