2011 NFL Draft: Offensive Guard Rankings

Published on January 21, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

  1. Mike Pouncey, C/G, Florida
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 320.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.23.
    Projected Round (2011): 1-2.

    10/2/10: Pouncey’s most natural position is guard, and this is likely how he will be drafted if he goes in the first round. His strength, power at the point of attack and athleticism all rate on a very high level for him to be a force in the league.

    4/4/10: Twin brother of Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Pouncey can play guard and center. He was a second-team All-SEC member in 2008 and an AP All-America second-teamer as a junior. The third member of an outstanding center class.

  2. Marcus Cannon, G, TCU
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 350.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.34.
    Projected Round (2011): 2.

    10/2/10: Cannon has been a physically dominant player for TCU this season as he will likely have to kick inside at the next level.
  3. Benjamin Ijalana, G/OT, Villanova
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 320.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.30.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-4.

    4/3/10: Has started every game of his Villanova career. Made the All-Division 1-AA Second Team as a junior.
  4. John Moffitt, G/C, Wisconsin
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 320.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.13.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-4.

    4/4/10: John Moffitt was an All-Big Ten first-teamer. Played center before the 2009 season.
  5. Rodney Hudson, G, Florida State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 285.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.21.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-4.

    10/2/10: Hudson is simply too small for the NFL at this point and he would get killed against 320-pound defensive tackles. If he adds weight, he will lose athleticism, quickness and stamina. He’s a great college player, but we need to see if he can gain weight in the offseason in order to know if he can do it in the league.

    4/4/10: An AP Second-Team All-American despite never being 100 percent all year.

  6. Steve Schilling, G, Michigan
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 297.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.02.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    4/4/10: An All-Big Ten honorable mention in 2010.
  7. James Carpenter, G, Alabama
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 300.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.38.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    10/2/10: Carpenter lacks the athleticism to play tackle in the NFL, but he is an intelligent blocker and at times really gets a push in the run game.
  8. Andrew Jackson, G, Fresno State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 295.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.16.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    4/4/10: An All-WAC first-teamer in 2009 and second-teamer in 2008.
  9. Clint Boling, G, Georgia
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 305.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.05.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    4/3/10: Has done a great job filling in at left tackle for the constantly injured Trinton Sturdivant. Made the All-SEC Second Team in 2009.
  10. Will Rackley, G, Lehigh
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 310.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.27.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    10/2/10: Rackley is one of the top sleeper prospects in the country.
  11. Justin Boren, G, Ohio State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.17.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    4/4/10: A rare sight: a Michigan player who transferred to Ohio State. Justin Boren qualified for the All-Big Ten First Team in 2009.
  12. Zach Hurd, G, Connecticut
    Height: 6-7. Weight: 315.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.24.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    4/4/10: Made the All-Big East First Team after starting every game in 2009.
  13. David Arkin, G, Missouri State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 299.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    10/2/10: Arkin has very nice size and is a fluid athlete, but he isn’t a highly thought-of prospect at the moment.
  14. Thomas Claiborne, G, Boston College
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 325.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.27.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    4/4/10: An honorable mention on the All-ACC Team the past two years.
  15. Zach Heberer, G, USC
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 295.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.19.
    Projected Round (2011): 6-FA.

    4/4/10: Started games as early as a redshirt freshman (two starts in 2007).
  16. Carl Johnson, G/RT, Florida
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 342.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.45.
    Projected Round (2011): 6-FA.

    4/4/10: Was highly recruited coming out of high school, but had a disappointing junior campaign.

    Height: 6-4. Weight: 300.

    Projected Round (2011): 6-FA.

    4/4/10: Struggled at right tackle, but made a smooth transition to guard. Was an All-Big Ten honorable mention in 2009.

    Height: 6-5. Weight: 320.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.30.
