Colts selected Ohio State OT Jack Mewhort with the No. 59 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Mewhort (6-foot-5 5/8, 309) started 39 games for Urban Meyer's Buckeyes, earning third-team All-American honors as a senior. He was Ohio State's left tackle in 2012-2013, and has experience at guard from his sophomore year. Right guard is likely where he'll slide in as a rookie. Mewhort is bright (36 Wonderlic) with ideal arm length (34"), but is short on athleticism (5.37 forty, 26-inch vertical). Either way, he projects as an early-career starter with noticeable toughness on tape, and plus tools for both run and pass blocking. May 9 - 9:15 PM

Scouts believe that versatile Ohio State OT Jack Mewhort projects to "be a very good NFL guard."

The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder played both guard spots and left tackle with the Buckeyes, and he also worked out as a center at Ohio State's Pro Day. "His workout Friday was very good, and he continued to show that he's a good knee bender and waist bender, which is important if you want to be a good offensive lineman," wrote NFL.com's Gil Brandt. "Plenty of offensive line coaches were on hand, and Mewhort was worked out by a bunch of them."

Ohio State T Jack Mewhort projects as a second-round draft pick, according to NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock.

Mayock lauded the prospect for working out at center at Friday's pro day. Mewhort, of course, has already proven that he can handle both guard spots and left tackle. "It created a little buzz," Mayock said. "I could see a lot of the offensive line coaches and scouts going, 'Hey, if this kid could play center, literally, he could play all five positions on an NFL offensive line. When you only dress seven offensive linemen on Sundays, his versatility's going to help him."

Ohio State T Jack Mewhort did some work at center at Ohio State's Pro Day.

Mewhort is a heady player and his intelligence clearly translates off-the-field; any additional versatility he can prove before the draft will only translate into a higher slot and more dollars. The 6-foot-6, 308-pounder "was handpicked by Coach Urban Meyer to be a team captain (because of his leadership qualities) and when the team voting was completed in the fall he had earned the most votes of all eight players who were ultimately chosen to represent the team as game captains in 2013," according to Mewhort's profile on the OSU athletics page.

One NFL executive brought up Ohio State T Jack Mewhort as a possible first-round pick, according to The MMQB's Greg A. Bedard.

Notre Dame OT Zack Martin and Minnesota DL Ra’Shede Hageman were also mentioned by the personnel man. Bedard added QB Derek Carr, DE Dee Ford and DT Aaron Donald to that list. Many have mentioned Mewhort as solely a right tackle in the NFL, but the difference between the two sizes is not that large. Mewhort makes it easy to like him, as he generates extension and control when winning against his opposition.

NFL.com's Charles Davis believes Ohio State senior T Jack Mewhort "is a great player."

"He's one of best left tackles in the country," Davis writes. "He's not going to rank ahead of Texas A&M's Jake Matthews, Alabama's Cyrus Kouandjio -- if he enters the draft -- or Michigan's Taylor Lewan, but Mewhort is a great player." Ohio State faces Clemson in their bowl game, so Mewhort could have a fun matchup against junior edge rusher Vic Beasley.
