08/16/2012 - Top-five Auburn prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. OG John Sullen...Sullen certainly hasn't received the national attention of some of his teammates but he may be the Tigers' best shot at getting a senior drafted into the NFL due to his combination of size and strength. Sullen appeared in all 13 games as a true freshman and even earned the starting nod against Ball State. He once again saw action in every game of Auburn's national title run in 2010 but wasn't able to crack the starting lineup until this past season in which he was on the field for the opening whistle on 11 of 13 games. Each of his starts have come at right guard, where he projects best in the NFL. Sullen is a beat slow off the snap but demonstrates at least adequate quickness in pass protection and when blocking on the move. He has great size and shows good balance. He's able to hand the bull rush by keeping his knees bent and shows the potential to control his opponent easily if he learned to use his hands more efficiently. Too often he allows them to slip outside or keeps them bent, allowing defensive tackles to use their own hands to rip away at his. Sullen was often asked to pull as part of Malzahn's offense. He has the quickness to get out but loses steam quickly and struggles to re-direct. He did improve as the season went on and has the size and level of competition scouts are looking for in a developmental project. He'll need to show continued improvement in 2012 to guarantee a draft selection, however. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
