NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout in the league, had only four offensive linemen in his top 50 last year.
For 2018, that number is 10, including five tackles.
Leading the way at that position is Connor Williams of Texas, who is Jeremiah’s No. 17 prospect. Oklahoma tackle Orlando Brown is No. 31 followed by Notre Dame’s Mike McGlinchey four spots later.
Rounding out the tackles group: Tyrell Crosby of Oregon (42) Brian O’Neill of Pitt (44) and Martinas Rankin of Mississippi State (48).

If taking Williams in the first round is a reach for the Bengals, who pick 12th and generally prefer taking the best player available over drafting strictly out of need, they should have multiple appealing choices available in the second round.
There is also reason to believe they can draft Russell Bodine’s replacement at center.
Jeremiah ranks Iowa center James Daniels the No. 25 prospect overall with Billy Price, the Rimington Award winner from Ohio State, No. 30.
