TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "hurt his knee during the season and the tear he suffered during the team[']s bowl game was actually the cherry on the whip cream."
We're guessing Ogbuehi would choose a different metaphor to describe the knee injury that may, in the end, cost him millions of dollars. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder suffered the injury in the Aggies' victory versus West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that Ogbuehi's stock was "crashing" following his torn ACL, though ESPN's Todd McShay only dropped Ogbuehi from No. 13 to No. 22 on his Big Board. Jan 20 - 11:53 PM

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi (ACL) remains No. 22 on Todd McShay's Big Board.

He fell from No. 13. After Ogbuehi's knee injury, one would have expected a steeper drop. "Ogbuehi suffered a torn ACL in Texas A&M's bowl win over West Virginia, putting into question his draft stock and when he'll be able to return to the field. Prior to the injury, he played both tackle spots for the Aggies this season," McShay wrote. "He is excellent in pass protection with outstanding quickness and natural athleticism, and he shows good mobility as a zone blocker in the running game." The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi hopes to follow in Dominique Easley's footsteps by going in the first round after a torn ACL in his last season on campus.

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi's "stock is crashing following a torn ACL," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

He suffered the injury in the Aggies' victory versus West Virginia in the Liberty Bowl. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi shifted from right to left tackle to replace departed first-round pick Jake Matthews this season and scuffled. "Though he struggled with the switch, when healthy, the 6-foot-5, 300 pound Ogbuehi possesses all of the athletic traits scouts look for in a potential NFL left tackle, including the combination of length, light feet and balance to handle speed rushers," Rang wrote. "It is a package that few others possess in a solid but somewhat unspectacular 2015 class of tackles." Prior to the injury, Ogbuehi was No. 5 offensive tackle and 23rd overall prospect. "That ranking is certain to change, however," Rang wrote. The tackle is set for surgery soon and could potentially be ready for training camp.

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi will have surgery soon to repair a torn ACL suffered in the school's bowl game, according to Rand Getlin.

This is crushing news for Ogbuehi. The Aggies beat the Mountaineers in their bowl game, but it came at a price. Ogbuehi could have entered last year's draft and was already being criticized for his play this year. He was set to attend next week's Senior Bowl. Brandon Thomas suffered a major injury while working out for a team last year and was not selected until the third-round by the 49ers. Conversely, Dominique Easley tore his ACL during his final season at Florida and was selected at the end of the first-round.

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "is one of the most polarizing players in the draft class," according to NFL.com.

"Some personnel men have him ranked as the top OT while others don't value him as a first-round talent," reported NFL.com's draft team of Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Charles Davis and Lance Zierlein. "Everyone expects him to be the star of the NFL Scouting Combine because of his rare physical tools." The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi shifted from right to left tackle to replace departed first-round pick Jake Matthews this season. He was briefly shifted back to the right side before ending the year at left tackle. Ogbuehi earned First Team All-American honors and a smattering of other awards, but those rewards may have been based on reputation. "He struggled [as a left tackle], failing to consistently show the balance needed to pass protect against speed and power," NFL Media wrote. "It won't be a surprise if NFL teams view him as a better fit for the right side, at least to start his career."

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi will attend the Senior Bowl.

After moving from right tackle to left tackle this season, the 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi was name First team All-American (Walter Camp) and first team All Big-12. The Texas A & M prospect may take the Senior Bowl as an opportunity to prove that he's indeed a left tackle worth investing in. Recently an anonymous scout called Ogbuehi "soft" and noted he "never practices." Our own Josh Norris ranks Ogbuehi behind Ronnie Stanley and La'El Collins.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt believes Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi projects as an NFL right tackle.

"He carries his hands a little low, which is nit-picking," Brandt said. "I think he’s probably a right tackle." It's possible that Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin agrees, as he shifted Ogbuehi from LT to RT in November and did so with vague and nebulous reasoning (Ogbuehi has since been returned to LT). "He’s got the best feet of any of these tackles," said Brandt's colleague Daniel Jeremiah. "Lack of strength has been a little bit of a concern. He’s late with his punch, he kinda gives up his chest, that can be worked on."

Two NFL scouts pointed to Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi's performance versus future NFL and current LSU DE Danielle Hunter as proof Ogbuehi "is still a top-15 player," reports Bleacher Report.

"Ogbuehi started the year as a potential top-10 pick but struggled at left tackle and saw his stock drop some," wrote Matt Miller. "But against LSU, and against future NFL defensive end Danielle Hunter, Ogbuehi was dominant." Miller additionally reports that Ogbuehi is leaning toward accepting a Senior Bowl invite. Perhaps the stud prospect wants to prove that he is indeed a left tackle worth investing in. You'll recall that Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin shifted Ogbuehi from LT to RT in November. Ogbuehi has since returned to the blind side.

Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel spoke with one anonymous scout who called Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "soft" and noted he "never practices."

As always, if you trust the reporter, trust their judgment regarding which scouts they quote and poll. McGinn is one of the best in terms of acquiring a range NFL evaluators' opinions. "It is a very deep draft for tackles if all the juniors come out," another scout said. Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Ogbuehi behind Ronnie Stanley and La'El Collins.

Texas A&M senior Cedric Ogbuehi returned to LT versus LSU.

In the past few games Ogbuehi shifted to right tackle with Germain Ifedi on the mend and Jarvis Harrison moved from left guard to left tackle. Some questioned the sincerity and reasoning behind the move despite the Aggies doing the same thing last year with Jake Matthews at right tackle when Ogbuehi went down - it was to put Harrison in a more comfortable position. Ogbuehi might not be selected in the top 20, but he has a lot of talent and should post a ridiculous Combine workout.

Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "could be a draft-day steal," according to an AFC scout.

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin shifted Ogbuehi from LT to RT earlier this month, a move that came on the heels of the lineman's struggles. Though Sumlin said the move had nothing to do with Ogbuehi's play -- the HC said Jarvis Harrison was simply more comfortable at LT -- many didn't buy the explanation. Even so, Ogbuehi's physical gifts simply cannot be taught, and there figures to be a handful of teams praying that he begins to fall down the board. "The assumption by this scout is that Ogbeuhi will drop in the draft after a season in which he has moved from left tackle to right tackle -- the opposite progression for his highly rated predecessors at A&M," NFL.com noted. "While his coach insists the move wasn't made because of struggles, there are some who have assigned Ogbuehi a mid-round grade less than a year after he said he received a first-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board."

Texas A&M and head coach Kevin Sumlin moving senior Cedric Ogbuehi from LT to RT is not the first time such a position switch has occurred.

When Ogbuehi was injured last season, Sumlin moved No. 6 overall pick Jake Matthews from left tackle to right tackle. It was likely due to the same reason as the recent move: Jarvis Harrison shifting from left guard to left tackle instead of the right side due to comfort. Some, like NFL Media's Bucky Brooks, have questioned the true motive behind Ogbuehi's move, but if history is repeating itself Sumlin's reasoning is just.

NFL Media's Bucky Brooks is not buying Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin's reasoning for moving senior Cedric Ogbuehi from LT to RT.

Sumlin previously stated Jarvis Harrison, formerly the left guard, felt more comfortable on the left side, so Ogbuehi basically took one for the team since he has experience at right tackle. We buy it, since the balance, base, footwork and hand placement techniques are similar along the left side. The former scout does not. "Although he is one of the most agile players that I've seen at the position, he didn't consistently display the balance and body control to handle speed rushers or power maneuvers off the edge," Brooks writes of Ogbuehi.

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin called senior Cedric Ogbuehi a "team guy" for accepting his move from LT to RT since Jarvis Harrison feels more comfortable on the left side.

"Jarvis is more comfortable over there... There is prestige at left tackle, but Jarvis has a better set over there," Sumlin said. "He works better with his post foot on the right side. So as a team, as an offense, we've made that switch to make our line the strongest it can be." Many like to diminish the value of right tackles compared to left tackles, but we believe there are quality rushers on both sides. Even if Ogbuehi plays on the right side in the NFL, that should not mean his value is less.

The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein reports that he "spoke to a regional scout" who has graded Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi as a "fourth-round prospect."

"Spoke with a regional scout who said he has 4th round grade on Ced Ogbuehi based on this year’s play. 'You could argue that’s too high.' Yikes," Zierlein tweeted. The 6-foot-5, 304-pound senior has been ranked as the No. 1 offensive tackle by Rotoworld's Josh Norris and many other analysts. Zierlein added in another tweet that Ogbuehi has "allowed 5.5 sacks and 8 QB knockdowns" and "hasn’t been anywhere near the same," and "might have to just stay on right side." Zierlein notes that he can "promise" that he's not going to be giving the Texas A&M prospect "a grade that low."
