Four days is all that is left for the speculation and rumors of the 2019 NFL Draft.

We have covered the first pick a little bit, and have moved to the second round and beyond with prospect previews.

Today, a look at three offensive line prospects that could be in play with the 33rd pick.

Chris Lindstrom, G, Boston College - Lindstrom is one of my favorite players in this draft. He has starting experience at right tackle (11 starts) and right guard (23 starts) in his career. The nice thing about Lindstrom is he’s big enough as well as athletic enough to play either the tackle or guard spot in the NFL and the Cardinals could have a need at both.

Erik McCoy, C, Texas A&M - No prospect in the draft, and I mean this, has a better on film resume than that of McCoy against Quinnen Williams and Dexter Lawrence. McCoy has started 37 as a center for the Aggies with two starts at guard in his career as well. McCoy offers maybe the best center traits in the draft, with the athleticism to hang with the quick interior linemen and the stout, brute strength to hold up against the space eaters.

Garrett Bradbury, OL, North Carolina State - Another truly versatile player like Lindstrom, Bradbury has started over a season at both guard and center. He profiles more as a center in the NFL because of his short arms, but his traits could get him some time early at guard if need be. Bradbury is athletic and lean, but has the ability to make any reach block in the playbook, can pull and offers more than enough resistance in pass protection.

It will be interesting to see if any of the three make it to 33, but if the Cardinals have their eyes set on a difference maker on the offensive line, they can’t go wrong with any of these three.
