Brian O'Neill, T, Pittsburgh

One of the more intriguing offensive line prospects in the draft, Brian O’Neill stands just a shade under 6-foot-7 and a touch under 300 pounds.

As a high school receiver, O’Neill planned to play tight end at Pittsburgh, where he showed up at 240 pounds. He was then converted to tackle thanks to a diet of whole milk and PB&J sandwiches.

O’Neill wound up making 37 starts at both left and right tackle and became an All-ACC selection. His pro prospects took a leap when he ran a 4.80 at the combine.

As an ex-offensive player, O’Neill still has some moves when he gets the ball in his hands. He was given two carries during the 2016 season and scored touchdowns both times.

PRODUCTIVITY SCORE: 112.4 | ATHLETICISM SCORE: 104.7 | AGE SCORE: 105.2

FINAL SCORE: 107.4
