Sometimes the top prospect at each position can very clear, but that isn’t the case for the offensive linemen entering the 2020 NFL Draft. This year’s crop has a ton of talent, and we broke down which player could come off the big board first here. Odds are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Alabama’s Jedrick Wills Jr. (+160) is the frontrunner. He’s 6’5” and 320 pounds but has quick feet and hands that allow him to stay in front of the opposition. His always intends to dominate the players across from him and is projected to be a good starter at the very least. His ceiling could be performing at an All-Pro level, but it’s unclear whether he’ll reach that playing exclusively right guard.

One team that definitely needs protection up front is the New York Giants. Keeping Daniel Jones safe should be a priority, and right tackle Mike Remmers is entering free agency. Remmers’ replacement could come in the form of Louisville’s Mekhi Becton, who is 6’7” and weighs in at 364 pounds. He moves well for his size, but whether he can be productive at that weight could be a concern.

Georgia’s Andrew Thomas (+500) isn’t necessarily a long shot, but appears to be behind Willis and Becton, who have the best and third best odds to get off the board first. What Thomas has going for him is that he’s a three-year starter with experience at left tackle — the most important position when it comes to protecting right-handed quarterbacks. But he he’s versatile and can play on the other side as well. The Bulldogs’ pro-style offense should have him prepared to be a Week 1 starter wherever he goes.
