After helping lead the veteran offensive line at Ohio State for four years, Jack Mewhort, the 6'6, 309-pound offensive tackle was selected by Colts with the 59th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Mewhort was ranked as the eighth-best offensive tackle in the draft and 71st overall player in SB Nation's Top 200 prospects.

Mewhort was a first-team All-American by ESPN.com, a second-team All-American by Walter Camp, Sports Illustrated and the Football Writers Association of America, and a third-team Associated Press All-American in 2013. Mewhort was also hand-picked to be team captain by Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer for his leadership qualities.

The now-graduated tackle was the foundation of an offensive line that ranked fifth nationally in rushing in 2013 (308.6 yards per game) and that shattered school records for points scored (637), touchdowns (87) and touchdown passes (38), plus scored the third-most rushing touchdowns in school history (45).

Here's the scouting report on Mewhort as an offensive tackle in the NFL:

Once Mewhort gets into his stance, he shows good power to control blockers. He can handle the bull rush and is smart enough to pick up inside rush moves. The speed moves, though, still give him issues.
