- Oklahoma State's top NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 5. OT Daniel Koenig, RS Senior...The third Koenig brother to start on the offensive line at Oklahoma State, Koenig was the starting right tackle the past two seasons, but moved over to the left side midway through last season. While he does some things well, Koenig needs to improve in several areas as a senior before any NFL team gives him a draftable grade.
He is lean limbed and tight hipped with a narrow trunk and doesn't boast the muscle definition or functional strength to match up physically in the trenches. Koenig lacks natural coordination in his kickslide and doesn't consistently bring his feet with him, making him unreliable in space, especially vs. speed rushers (Kony Ealy ate him up in the Cotton Bowl). He has some traits to work with, but needs to improve in several areas as a senior if he hopes to have any type of future at the professional level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
