2. Olu Fashanu

Sticking with the trend of guys up front, Olu Fashanu could seamlessly fit into the hole at right tackle for the NY Giants. With a massive 6-6, 317-pound frame, Fashanu consistently proved during his time at Penn State that he would be a force in the NFL for years.

Most recently, NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah described Fashanu as a "plug and play" player on most NFL O-Lines. With that said, while Fashanu had a successful 2023 season, there is reason for hesitation for NFL general managers.

Fashanu didn't play his best in a big game against Ohio State. Finding himself up against a world-class defense, Fashanu was caught with his eyes in the wrong place and bullied several times. While there is nothing to overreact about, there are questions if Fashanu's play against elite competition is a point of contention.

Fashanu's frame and quickness led him to have a sky-high ceiling. Having allowed just one sack in more than 680 pass-protection snaps over the last two seasons, Fashanu can be the cornerstone tackle every franchise covets.
