2. John Simpson, Clemson, goalkeeper, 6-4, 330
Simpson is a true road grader in every sense of the word. Tall and physical, he has the potential to have an immediate impact in the racing game. Helped Clemson record 29-1 in his two seasons as a full-time left guard, playing 2,043 shots in 50 games (29 starts) in his career. It has all the tools and a ton of benefits.
3. Tyler Biadasz, Wisconsin, center, 6-3, 321
Won the Remington Trophy as the best center in the country and was also a finalist in the Outland Trophy. It is about as consistent as possible. He will not amaze people with his athleticism, but he is technically sound, intelligent and has proven successful in helping ball carrier Jonathan Taylor accumulate countless yards over the years. Reliability is the name of the game for Biadasz.
Combine the sleeper to watch:
Ben Bartch, St. John’s (Minn), tackle, 6-6, 308
Bartch played the close end for two seasons before adding 75 pounds and making the tackle. What is essential is that Bartch did not lose much of his athleticism after gaining weight. He is obviously still very raw, but he will test very well at Combine, and the teams will do more work to decide what his ceiling may be.
