Cyrus Kouandjio – 6’6 310lbs – Alabama

Cyrus Kouandjio has been quite the talking point when it comes to the Alabama Crimson Tide’s offensive line. In 2012, he replaced a well-respected Barrett Jones at left tackle moving Jones to center. In 2011, Barrett Jones had won the Jacob’s Blocking Trophy as the SEC’s best lineman, which says a lot about what Nick Saban thinks of Kouandjio. He is a naturally gifted athletic prospect who may draw comparisons to previous Alabama lineman Chris Samuels, who was the 3rd overall pick in 2000 and a Pro-Bowler for the Washington Redskins. The Alabama offensive line lost three starters in last years draft including D.J. Fluker and Chance Warmack, but they haven’t seemed to miss a beat. Alabama is still undefeated and will likely remain so for the rest of the year. Kouandjio is the last of the previously mentioned top three offensive lineman prospects.
