Don’t let No. 5 on our list detour you from reading on. Having Cedric Ogbuehi on our countdown isn’t about the first-round pick for the Detroit Lions — it’s about the second or even the third.

Ogbuehi was a projected first-round selection following an excellent 2013 season at the University of Texas A&M. As a junior, Ogbuehi decided to return to school for his senior season in 2014 and it would be a decision that would cost him dearly.

In the Aggies bowl game against West Virginia, Ogbuehi tore his ACL.

The injury has the 6-foot-5, 305 pounder dropping as low as the third round of the NFL Draft by many experts — despite the fact that an amazing amount of talent remains within the young man.

Truthfully, Cedric Ogbuehi looks the part of a future NFL Pro Bowler.

He is light on his feet, has good agility and length, as well as big broad shoulders. He’s not the most athletic guy, put he makes up for it with power, often driving defenders off the ball with ease. His versatility is also key, having started games at both guard and tackle.

Now, I’ll be the first to state that the Detroit Lions have appeared adamant in the fact that they will not take a player with injury or character concerns. However, Detroit did host Ogbuehi for a pre-draft visit, so the interest is obviously there. Potentially as a great value pick in the second or third round.
