Mock Draft Expert Analysis

  • Cincinnati Bengals | #26
    Few teams reload along the line of scrimmage as consistently as the frugal Bengals and with starting left tackle Andrew Whitworth entering his ninth season and the clubs' backups (Marshall Newhouse, Will Svitek) entering the final year of their contracts, Cincinnati is likely to be on the lookout for potential replacements. Drango plays with the tenacity that OL coach Paul Alexander will appreciate.
  • Philadelphia Eagles | #23
    The Eagles pass rush hasn't been the strength of the team so far in 2014 and it wouldn't be a shock if they address the position in the first round in back-to-back drafts.

Strengths Weaknesses

One of the top offensive linemen in college football, Drango enters his fourth season as the Bears' starting left tackle.

STRENGTHS: Plays with a wide base with easy natural quickness in his kick-slide, positioning himself to stonewall rushers with brick hands. Relies on timing and awareness and is rarely caught on off-balance with a quick-thinking approach that limits his mistakes.

WEAKNESSES: Very few holes to his game, but Nov. 2013 back surgery is a bright red flag and definitely something to monitor. If healthy and there are no long-term concerns, he has the overall ability to compete to be the top tackle drafted.

COMPARES TO: Zach Martin, Cowboys -- Drango has an impressive NFL skillset as the game appears to come very easily to him, but he projects best inside at the next level.

IN OUR VIEW: Although his transition from Baylor's spread offense to pro-style will be a sizeable challenge, Drango has the skills to fight for first round status this season.

12/30/2014 - Baylor OT Spencer Drango to return for senior season...The good news keeps coming for Baylor. A day after potential top-10 draft pick Shawn Oakman announced his intention to return for his senior season at defensive end, the Bears' three-year starter at left tackle, Spencer Drango, did the same. "I petitioned the [NFL] advisory committee," Drango told Fox Sports Southwest. "[The] grade came back and said not to leave."

Drango was named to his second consecutive All-Big 12 first team in 2014, having anchored an offensive line that paved the way for Baylor's second consecutive No. 1 finish in FBS total offense. A 6-foot-6, 310-pound redshirt junior, Drango was named a first-team AP All-American. Drango and Oakman each made their statements in Arlington, Texas, where the Bears have traveled to face Michigan State in Thursday's Cotton Bowl. Baylor is a 2.5-point favorite. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
