Default Pas has O-linemen evaluations.

I have a prejudice concerning this young man and I thought you might read what they have to say about him. This is what Pas from ESPN has to say:

OG Logan Mankins (Fresno State)
Vital statistics: 6 foot 4 1/8, 307 pounds, 5.06 in the 40, 21 bench press reps.
Numbers game: Played linebacker and tight end in high school and was a walk-on during his 2000 redshirt season. Moved into starting lineup at left tackle the next year and was a fixture there except for 2003, when he missed the entire campaign after he tore his right anterior cruciate ligament before the season began. Surrendered no sacks and no pressures as a senior and graded over 90 percent on blocking efficiency for the entire season. Was voted team's most valuable player his senior year.
Upside: One tough hombre and a classic, road-grader type of blocker. Huge hands, powerful through the forearms, strong enough to just rag-doll defenders at the college level. Relishes trench battles, just a mean guy, the kind you want mashing defensive linemen inside. Plays with a strong power base, really gets his backside and hips rolling forward and performs with impressive momentum.
Downside: Will struggle to hold the outside, so seems to project more to guard despite having played left tackle in college. Not a great athlete. Sometimes allows his mauler image to go to his head.
The dish: Gritty, blue-collar guy who will definitely be a first-day selection. All football player, a self-made success story, and no one will have to show him the way to the weight room, that's for sure.

This guy never says never. He has that intangible desire and nothing stops him from learning. For a guy who is not athletic he has done a heck of a lot. Believe me this young man is the real deal. I'm certain the Texans know about him. He fits the mold some of you would like to see. That is he has a mean streak while playing.

Sounds like a good 4th rounder.

I really don't think Mankins would go in the first. He seems like he'll be gone somewhere around the 2nd or 3rd round. Even though he played LT at Fresno State he'll probably play OG in the NFL. He definately looks to be among the top OG prospects.
