Several underclassmen have declared for the NFL Draft, helping increase the available talent at the offensive skill positions.

As far as offensive lineman are concerned, there doesn't appear to be an impact junior in the bunch.

Rivals.com NFL Draft partner Frank Coyle of draftinsiders.com is not impressed with the offensive guard class, but thinks there are a few centers and tackles who could help their new professional teams immediately.

Coyle believes the group of tackles led by Joe Thomas of Wisconsin (see draft diary) is by far the strongest along the offensive line. At guard, Josh Beekman (see draft diary) and Justin Blalock may be the only ones to hear their names on the first day of the draft.

According to Coyle, the center class has one standout and several underrated prospects that could develop into solid players.

Find out which prospects are most likely to be selected first in our rankings of the available guards, tackles and centers.
