NFL Media reports that Baylor redshirt senior T Spencer Drango was advised by the NFL Draft Advisory Board last December to stay at Baylor.
Drango considered jumping to the pros early and submitted paper work to check in on his status. The board apparently didn't think he'd go in the first two rounds, perhaps because he was coming off back surgery and was never 100-percent healthy last season. The board got it wrong with D.J. Humphries and may have done so with Drango, but the Bears' prospect can now potentially move into the upper-half of Round 1 with a great season. "The Bears' third-year starter at left tackle might play in a hurry-up, no-huddle offense, but don't mistake him for a finesse player. He is one of the best run blockers in the Big 12," wrote Chase Goodbread. May 21 - 6:44 PM

Baylor redshirt senior LT Spencer Drango "could be next year's version of Zack Martin or Brandon Scherff," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Entering his fourth season as Baylor's starting left tackle, Drango could be next year's version of Zack Martin or Brandon Scherff – a dominant college left tackle with a first round skill-set that projects best inside in the NFL," Brugler wrote. While some analysts have mocked Drango as a first-round talent, our own Josh Norris did not have a first-round grade for the Baylor prospect. Brugler notes that Drango's "transition from Baylor's spread offense to pro-style will be a sizeable challenge." In order for Drango to improve his draft stock, he'll have show and prove he can be a dominant force this season.

Baylor redshirt senior LT Spencer Drango "could be a swing player in the NFL at guard and tackle," wrote's Jamie Newberg.

Newberg praised Drango for "wisely" returning for another year at Baylor and ranked him as the No. 22 prospect. Drango, who has started 34 games on campus, only allowed one sack last year. "He graded out at 88%, had 31 knockdown blocks and 16 touchdown resulting blocks," Newberg documented. "He gets off the ball very well and plays with good leverage."

Baylor redshirt senior LT Spencer Drango was named an honorable mention on Mel Kiper's first Big Board of 2016.

The board is 25 names deep and Kiper added a dozen names that he considered but didn't ultimately include, a group including Drango. "Has the length and quick feet to deal with speed off the edge," Kiper wrote. Todd McShay recently mocked Drango to the Indianapolis Colts at No. 26, while Rotoworld's Josh Norris did not have Drango going in the first round.

ESPN's Todd McShay mocked Baylor redshirt senior LT Spencer Drango to the Indianapolis Colts at No. 26.

"The Colts didn't address their offensive line until the seventh round of the 2015 draft, so tackle could be a glaring need by this time next year," he wrote. "Drango has good size (6-6, 310) and experience (three-year starter) at left tackle. He underwent back surgery last offseason." Rotoworld's Josh Norris did not have Drango going in the first round of his own mock draft. As with skill position players, NFL teams are wary of tackles in spread systems. Drango must have a dominant season in pass protection to assuage those concerns.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang prefaces by noting that "teams are hesitant to invest early picks in blockers from spread attacks" but believes Baylor redshirt senior LT Spencer Drango's "frame, feet and strength are impressive."

Baylor's longtime starter at left tackle could have been a first-rounder last year but decided, as Shawn Oakman did, to return to Waco for another run at the Big 12 Championship. Drango (6-foot-8, 315 pounds) is headed for the very top of the draft if he shuts down the spate of top-shelf edge rushers he'll face this year. The analyst ranks Drango as the No. 8 senior prospect in the land.

Baylor redshirt senior LT Spencer Drango will challenge Ohio State's Taylor Decker to be the first tackle taken in next year's draft, writes's Chad Reuter.

Drango (6-foot-8, 315 pounds) could have been a first-rounder last year, but he elected to return to Waco. "A four-year starter, there's no questioning his intensity or strength at the line of scrimmage," wrote Reuter. "But like Decker, Drango needs to consistently hit targets in space and look comfortable holding off any top pass rushers during his final year on campus before earning a top-10 draft slot."

Baylor redshirt junior LT Spencer Drango will return to school for the 2015 season.

Drango is a longtime starter at left tackle. Head coach Art Briles even said the announcement was as important as Shawn Oakman returning on the defensive side of the ball. He will be protecting a new quarterback with Bryce Petty graduating to the NFL.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that Baylor redshirt junior LT Spencer Drango's skill set compares to Dallas Cowboys 2014 first round pick Zach Martin in some areas.

"One of the top offensive linemen in college football, Drango has an impressive NFL skill-set as the game appears to come very easily to him, showing similarities to Dallas Cowboys' 2014 first rounder Zach Martin in some areas," Brugler wrote. The Bears prospect has started at LT for the Bears for the last two seasons. Brugler notes that Drango's "easy kickslide" and "wide base and the fluid lower body movements" allow him to properly protect the pocket from both speed and power rushers. Drango has a good opportunity to compete to be the top tackle in the draft when he turns pro.

Baylor redshirt sophomore LT Spencer Drango will likely miss the remainder of the season after suffering a serious back injury.

Drango ruptured a disk in his back and will undergo surgery on Tuesday. It will be interesting to see how the Bears handle the injury, and whether or not senior guard Cyril Richardson is moved outside to tackle. He has posted much better tape inside. Drango has started for the past two seasons.
