Offensive Tackle NFL Draft History

The 2020 NFL draft features one of the deepest offensive lineman prospect pools in recent memory. In a related prop, bookmakers at William Hill have set the total at 6.5 offensive linemen being selected during the first round. Looking specifically at the offensive tackle position, 40 players have been selected in Round 1 over the last 10 drafts. Four OT were selected during the 2019 draft with Jonah Williams going first to Cincinnati at pick No. 11.

Three tackles were taken during the first round in 2018 and just two went off the board during Round 1 in 2017. None of those players were selected eighth or earlier. The 2016 draft had two players go off the board in the top eight. Baltimore took Ronnie Stanley with the sixth pick and Jack Conklin was selected by Tennessee with the eighth pick. There have been 11 offensive tackles selected with the eighth pick or sooner during the last 10 NFL drafts.
