Amini Silatolu, offensive guard, Midwestern State (6-3, 324)

Silatolu might be the meanest, nastiest player in this year's draft. He’s a small-school left tackle who will be asked to kick inside to guard. However, he’s got a natural snap to his game, good range in the second level and is able to absolutely dominate at the point of attack through contact. A Day One starter who could mature into one of the NFL’s best.

NFL Ceiling: Pro Bowl caliber guard

NFL Floor: Violent, overachieving starting guard
