Penei Sewell is the best tackle prospect in the draft in several years, if not longer
NFL teams are always looking for help along the offensive line with particular attention paid to tackle. Fortunately, the 2021 NFL Draft class at the position doesn't lack intriguing options, including one player that every scout is raving about.
As part of Athlon Sports' 2021 NFL Draft Guide, we have ranked each position, including 25 offensive tackles. Penei Sewell is not just the undisputed No. 1 tackle prospect in this year's class, he's also the best at the position in a while, if not ever, depending on who you ask. Sewell won't be the only tackle taken in the first round either, as four others received first-round grades by Athlon and others could wind up among the first 32 picks on April 29 because of team needs.
