The 2020 NFL Draft class brings us a loaded crop of offensive linemen, with Michigan's Cesar Ruiz among them. Ruiz projects to land somewhere toward the end of the first or beginning of the second round, but there's likely to be quite a few teams competing for his services.

With that in mind, let's take a look at some expert predictions for Ruiz's landing spot in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Matt Miller, of Bleacher Report, has Ruiz going to the San Francisco 49ers with the No. 31 overall selection in the first round.

Mel Kiper Jr., of ESPN, also has the Seattle Seahawks picking Ruiz with the No. 27 overall selection in the first round.

Sports Illustrated
Kevin Hanson, of Sports Illustrated, has Ruiz dropping into the second round, projecting the Chicago Bears to draft him with the No. 43 overall pick.

USA Today
Luke Easterling, of USA Today's Draftwire, has the most confidence in Ruiz thus far, going with the Miami Dolphins to draft him with the No. 26 overall pick in the first round.

Walter Football
Walter Cherepinsky, of Walter Football, shares the same opinion as Miller here, projecting the San Francisco 49ers to draft Ruiz with the No. 31 overall selection in the first round.

Cesar Ruiz NFL Draft Predictions

Round 1
- Dolphins (No. 26)
- Seahawks (No. 27)
- Seahawks (No. 27)
- 49ers (No. 31)
- 49ers (No. 31)

Round 2
- Bears (No. 43)

We actually have two consensus predictions for Ruiz among the the six expert opinions highlighted above, with two expecting him to land with the Seahawks at No. 27 and two projecting him to land with the 49ers at No. 31 overall. Excluding Hanson's lone second-round prediction, Ruiz's draft range appears to be firmly rooted in the late first round.
