Sewell has held serve in this spot and will not fall out. He opted out of the 2020 season, but his 2019 film was phenomenal. Sewell received better grades from some scouts in 2019 than other highly rated tackle prospects. (The best offensive lineman in college football is moving on to the NFL without playing his junior season. Penei Sewell, Oregon's starting left tackle and the reigning Outland Trophy winner, announced he is opting out of the 2020-21 season to prepare to for the 2021 NFL Draft. Sewell, a unanimous All-American last season, is widely projected as a top five pick in next year's draft. The 6-foot-6, 330-pound Sewell did not allow a sack last season, had eight games without allowing a pressure, hit or hurry and allowed just seven quarterback pressures in 466 pass-blocking snaps en route to becoming the third unanimous All-American in Oregon program history. He was the first sophomore offensive lineman and first Duck to ever win the Outland Trophy). - Oregon Live
