Previewing The NFL Scouting Combine: Interior Offensive Linemen

After Wide Receiver, the next biggest need on Offense for the Colts are Interior Offensive Linemen. Currently the Colts have a bunch of young guys who are very inconsistent, and a complete overhaul of both Guard positions is certainly possible, and the starting center, Jeff Saturday, is most likely not coming back next year. Even if he does, it'll only be for two years tops, so getting a guy now might be a good idea.

For the sake of this story, I'm going to say that Guard and Center are interchangeable, even though in reality it isn't really the case. I only have two Centers in the list, and even though both guys are four year starters at Center, they could kick inside to Guard for a year or two if needed. There are also several guys who were Tackles in college, but they are being projected as Guards in the NFL. There's only three or four guys who were actually Guards in college.

I don't see the need here for the Colts super high, but just in need of some bodies, so I'm not expecting a high pick. A good number of these guys are lower-round prospects, which is where I expect the Colts to be looking for a lineman or two.

After the jump I'll show you the entire group of Linemen, and give you my favorites in the group.

List of Interior Linemen to watch at the Scouting Combine for the Colts:

Interior Linemen
Jr Player School Camp #
JEFF ALLEN ILLINOIS OL02
MARK ASPER OREGON OL04
MICHAEL BREWSTER OHIO ST OL08
CORDY GLENN GEORGIA OL18
BEN JONES GEORGIA OL22
SENIO KELEMETE WASHINGTON OL25
JOE LOONEY WAKE FOREST OL29
LUKE NIX PITTSBURGH OL37
AMINI SILATOLU MIDWESTERN ST OL46
KEVIN ZEITLER WISCONSIN OL54

A couple of my favorites:

  • Mark Asper - Oregon: Played Center, Guard, and Tackle, and is 25 after taking a religious mission before starting in Eugene. Late rounder.
  • Senio Kelemete - Washington: Actually played Defense as a Freshman before switching to the OL, played LT last two years. Possible 3rd-4th round.
  • Kevin Zeitler - Wisconsin: OL Factory. I'll take any lineman from Badger land.

Who did I miss? Let me know in the comments.
