It's basically a three-man race for who will be the top offensive tackle taken in this year's draft between Alabama's Andre Smith, Virginia's Eugene Monroe and Baylor's Jason Smith.
Although he's dropped on several draft boards, Michael Oher of Mississippi also is in the running. CBS Sport's Clark Judge has an interesting perspective on Oher and the other top offensive tackle prospects.
All four presented themselves well for the most part when they spoke to reporters, with Monroe and Jason Smith coming off a little better than Andre Smith and Oher.
Andre Smith said he weighed 332 pounds and played at as much as 345 – not the 380 that was rumored – during the season for the Crimson Tide.
Smith is built more like Floyd Womack, an immense guy but not chiseled. While Monroe and Jason Smith are built more in the Walter Jones mode, but not nearly as big.
Monroe said he will workout during the combine, including every assessment drill.
"I've got nothing to hide," Monroe said. "I'm going to do every drill. I'm going to lift tomorrow. I'm going to do it all."
There is some thought that Andre Smith could wind up as a guard because of his lack of foot quickness, so I'm interested to see how he tests in the 40-yard dash, the three-cone drill and the shuttle drill. But I like the size he brings to the tackle position if he's able to move in pass protection.
I was real impressed with Monroe and the way he held himself. He said Walter Jones was someone he watched and tried to emulate in his career. And he appeared confident in what he could do at the next level. You can listen to part of that conversation with Monroe here.
I did not get a chance to talk to Jason Smith because we were interviewing Tim Ruskell at the time, but everything that I heard is he had one of the best interviews during the day on Thursday. You can watch some snippets from that interview here.
I also was not around for the Oher interview, but here's a few quotes from the transcript.
On whether he wants to play left tackle or right tackle: "I'm a left tackle. I like playing left tackle. That's my position, and I think I can do it better than anybody."
On the last time he gave up a sack: "My junior year against Vanderbilt."
On being focus of a best-selling book: "I don't think my life has change since the book. I think it's the same Definitely not a lot of people have the opportunity to have a book written about them. But I don't think it change a lot. Just a lot of people know about my life and a lot of things that I overcame."
What are his thoughts on the book: "I haven't read it. I think it's fairly accurate."
On why he hasn't he read it: "He talked to me a lot about the stuff, went over a lot of things. And I felt I didn't need to read it."
This week will go a long way to see how these guys separate themselves heading into April
