Dalton Risner Stats
Risner's run-blocking technique and mentality did allow him to become one of the better offensive tackles in the country, despite starting off his career at the center position. Risner played 50 games in his collegiate career with Kansas State, and the four-year starter should develop into a quality NFL lineman provided he can improve his ability to handle faster edge rushers.

Late First Round to Early Second Round
Dalton Risner Prediction
Green Bay Packers (No. 30), Washington Redskins (No. 46)
Having an offensive line that can protect the quarterback and open up holes for the running back is absolutely vital in the NFL. Both of these storied franchises learned what happens when the offensive line struggled last season, falling out of the playoff hunt much earlier than expected. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was even more surly than usual this past season, even publicly commenting on poor play from his offensive line multiple times. In Washington, quarterback Alex Smith was sacked 22 times in just 10 games before potentially losing the rest of his career to injury last season.
Risner is an experienced, hardworking lineman, who should be able to sure up one of these teams' offensive lines. One thing working against Risner's draft stock is the depth of this year's offensive line talent, but look for the Packers to target him with the No. 30 overall pick toward the end of the first round. If Risner makes it past the first round, Washington could scoop him up in the second round with the No. 46 overall pick.
