Over the last few weeks, Ezra Cleveland's NFL Draft stock has been skyrocketing. Taking a look at his performance in the 2020 NFL Combine, it's not hard to see why. Among offensive linemen, Cleveland posted top-five numbers in the 40-yard dash (4.93) and the bench press (30), and he had the best overall performance in the 3-cone drill (7.26) and the 20-yard shuffle (4.46).

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