2022 NFL Draft: Offensive Tackle Rankings

Evan Neal, OT, Alabama Crimson Tide, 2022 NFL Draft

Evan Neal is one of three tackles who could go in the first 10 picks this year

After four offensive linemen were taken in the first round last year, the position could play an even more prominent role early in the 2022 NFL Draft. In fact, it wouldn't be a surprise if an offensive tackle went No. 1 overall. So it would be a good idea to go ahead and familiarize yourself with the names at the top of the list below because chances are they won't be hanging around in the green room long when the draft gets started on April 28.

As part of Athlon Sports' 2022 NFL Draft Guide, we have ranked each position, including 25 offensive tackles. While three stand out from the rest, this is a fairly deep group with 11 tackles among Athlon's top 100 prospects for this year's draft.
