ESPN's Todd McShay ranks Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi as the top offensive line prospect.
Ogbuehi went No. 3 in McShay's 2015 mock draft back in May. "The Aggies have seen their starting left tackles selected within the top six picks of the NFL draft each of the past two years, and Ogbuehi is the next prospect in line at the position," McShay wrote. "He is excellent in pass protection with outstanding quickness and natural athleticism, and shows very good mobility as a zone blocker in the running game. He needs to improve his lower-body strength and leverage after initial contact, but overall he is very good as a run-blocker as well. He rates very well in terms of toughness and character." CBS Sports' Rob Rang ranks Ogbuehi as the No. 2 overall prospect for the 2015 draft. Aug 27 - 5:53 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang writes that Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi "has room to grow before earning his projected top three selection."

"Boasting a more unique skill-set that either of his predecessors Luke Joeckel or Jake Matthews, Ogbuehi almost certainly would have earned a top 10 selection in the 2014 draft had he entered," Rang wrote. Rang ranks Ogbuehi as the No. 2 overall player. "He looks the part of a future NFL Pro Bowler with his easy knee bend and lateral agility," Rang wrote. "Ogbuehi has vines for arms and strong hands to latch and control, as well as the core flexibility to anchor. He is light on his feet and can adjust in space when run blocking at the second level and, because of his rare combination of agility and length, is one of those few tackles capable of recovering if initially beaten off the snap. Ogbuehi isn't just athletic; he's powerful, demonstrating the strength to simply drive defenders off the ball."

CBS Sports' Rob Rang ranks Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi as the No. 2 overall prospect for the 2015 draft.

Ogbuehi checks in behind only Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. "Former Aggies Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews were the second and sixth overall picks over the past two years and Ogbuehi has more talent than either of them," Rang wrote. "He's stood out at right guard and right tackle the past two seasons but his long arms and nimble athleticism have always projected him best to left tackle, where he'll be starting for the first time as a senior. If he makes the transition as easily as expected, he'll prove the elite talent in yet another strong class of blockers." The 6-foot-5, 300-pound senior has outstanding size and athleticism, as well as long arms and quick feet.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi was ranked by NFL.com as the No. 5 player in the country.

"He has ideal length and foot quickness for left tackle. He would have been a first-round pick in the 2014 draft," Daniel Jeremiah said. Indeed, Ogbuehi received a first-round grade from the Draft Advisory Board over the winter. "Athletic pass protector with prototypical physical dimensions and impressive technical skills," Bucky Brooks said. Charles Davis mentioned that Ogbuehi will become the third straight Aggies' LT to go in the first round, following Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews. "Last season, A&M had three first-round draft picks on offense. At times, though, this guy played better than all of them," Mike Huguenin said.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi "has more talent" than "former Aggies Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews,"and names Ogbuehi his No.2 prospect.

"Former Aggies Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews were the second and sixth overall picks over the past two years and Ogbuehi has more talent than either of them," Rang wrote. In the last two seasons, the 6-foot-5, 300 pound Ogbuehi has excelled at both the right guard and right tackle positions, but with his long arms and athleticism he projects best to left tackle. With a successful season, Ogbuehi will have an opportunity to be the next Aggie left tackle selected in the top 5.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah ranks Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi as the top senior at his position.

Iowa's Brandon Scherff ranks No. 2, with LSU's La'El Collins and FSU's Cameron Erving rounding out the top four. Ogbuehi has long been a section favorite, as he possesses legitimate top 15 talent. The Aggie is making the transition from right tackle to left tackle this offseason.
Jun 26 - 2:20 PM

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks believes Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi is a "franchise player at the next level," and ranks Ogbuehi as his No.1 rated tackle.

"More importantly, Ogbuehi is a standout performer with the size, athleticism and skill to be a franchise player at the next level. If he continues to put dominant performances on tape in 2014, it is quite possible Ogbuehi will extend the Aggies' streak of first-round offensive tackles to three," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound senior has the size and athleticism to go along with his long arms and quick feet. With the versatility to play both right tackle and left tackle, it should add value to his draft stock moving forward. The Aggies prospect has a good shot to be a top-10 talent in next year's draft.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi as his No. 1 senior tackle.

"Following the same path as recent No. 6 overall pick Jake Matthews, Ogbuehi spent his junior season at right tackle and will come back as a senior and play on the left side. The highly athletic tackle was No. 2 on my first 2015 Big Board," Kiper wrote. Ogbuehi's decision to stay in school could make him a wealthy man, if all goes well this season. Last season he received a first-round grade from the NFL draft advisory board, and it's possible he could be a top-10 selection in the 2015 draft. The last two Aggies to play the position went in the top 10, which is somewhere Ogbuehi hopes to be selected.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes that senior T Cedric Ogbuehi has a "very high ceiling."

"A&M OT Cedric Ogbuehi has outstanding foot quickness, bends easy and recovers smoothly. Needs to get a little stronger but very high ceiling," Jeremiah Tweeted. The Aggies prospect will shift from right tackle to left tackle this year to replace Jake Matthews. There is a good chance if Ogbuehi continues to improve and avoids injury, he could go in the top half of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Jun 8 - 7:43 AM

NFL scouts disagreed with the NFL scouting service ranking of OT Brandon Scherff as the best senior prospect; draft insider Tony Pauline says the group calls Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "much better."

Ogbuehi and Scherff are about to embark upon an eight-month competition to determine which tackle will go first in the 2015 draft. Scherff is more of a finished product and sure thing, which might be why the NFL scouting service prefers him, while Ogbuehi's prognosis has a lot of projection in it. Blessed with superb length and athleticism, Ogbuehi is shifting from right tackle to left this year.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt projects Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi as a top 10 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Ogbuehi decided to return to school in January, bypassing a chance at the top 10 in this past draft. At the time of his announcement, Josh Norris listed Ogbuehi as his No. 2 OT prospect. Ogbuehi will shift to left tackle this year to replace Jake Matthews, who himself also shifted from the right to the left side to take over for Luke Joeckel. Ogbuehi went No. 3 in Todd McShay's recent 2015 mock draft, and slotted No. 7 in Norris'.
