NFL media analyst Bucky Brooks writes that "NFL scouts will have some questions about" FSU senior T Cameron Erving's "ability to develop into an elite left tackle" after Saturday's game against Clemson.
Erving, who dominated Beasley in 2013, had a chance to perhaps stamp his Round 1 ticket by repeating the performance on Saturday. Instead, he face planted, particularly in the first half, when Beasley went off for two sacks. "There is no doubt that Erving is one of the top offensive tackles in college football, but NFL scouts will have some questions about his ability to develop into an elite left tackle as a pro after watching him struggle against Clemson DE Vic Beasley on Saturday night," Brooks wrote. "The explosive pass rusher repeatedly blew past Erving on an assortment of speed rushes that exposed Erving's lack of lateral quickness. While Beasley is arguably the top pass rusher in the game, the fact that Erving struggled mightily against an undersized rusher with explosive first-step quickness will make evaluators pause before penciling him in as a franchise left tackle on draft boards."

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline said during Saturday's game that FSU senior T Cameron Erving looked "completely intimidated" by Clemson DE Vic Beasley "and his draft stock is taking a hit."

It would be easy to overreact to Saturday's lackluster performance (Beasley had two sacks), but don't forget that Erving erased Beasley in the same game last season. We think Saturday's game spoke more about Beasley's technical improvements than a deterioration of Erving's skills (though it's fair to say Erving probably became a bit overrated last season; his stock has stabilized now). The 6-foot-6, 302-pound Erving is NFLDraftScout.com's No. 4 senior offensive tackle.

FSU senior T Cameron Erving "used his long arms to latch on and control" Clemson senior edge rusher Vic Beasley early in Saturday's game, writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Erving, NFLDraftScout.com's No. 4 senior offensive tackle, "had the upper hand" early, according to Rang, who wrote that the 6-foot-5, 304-pound former defensive tackle "used his long arms to latch on and control the Tigers' star pass rusher, showing impressive patience and balance when doing so." However, as the game wore on, Beasley took over, getting revenge for Erving's star-turning performance last year that helped FSU destroy Clemson 51-14.

NFL.com's Albert Breer writes that NFL scouts can't wait to watch the battle between FSU senior T Cameron Erving and Clemson All-American DE Vic Beasley on Saturday.

"Erving has been a fascinating one for scouts to evaluate for a couple years now -- a former defensive tackle who converted to left tackle and has flashed elite raw ability for the position," Breer wrote. The 6-foot-6, 302-pound Erving is a potential top-10 pick, but evaluators think he needs to work on the technical aspects of his game. He won't have a better chance to show them his progression than versus Beasley. "Clemson has multiple pass rushers; can he shut them down and show physicality in the run game?" an AFC college director said. "It'll be fun to watch all the Florida State OLs against the Clemson DLs." Breer concluded: "The main issue with Erving in the past has been consistency. That's one reason why a week like this one could be the difference between going in the first round, or the second/third."

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.

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 NFL.com 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 NFL.com 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 NFL.com 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."

NFL.com'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.
