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

Yesterday we took a look at three offensive line prospects that could be in play with the 33rd pick.

Much to the chagrin of some, sorry Sundex, the Cardinals could wait until the third round to address the offensive line.

Here are four that could be in play with the 65th pick… or a magical second round pick that could show up in the next couple days.

Connor McGovern, OL, Penn State - Another one of those versatile linemen with experience at guard, 21 at right guard and 14 at center… McGovern is an NFL ready run blocker who has a good build and great play strength. He’s a bit weaker in pass protection right now, but that’s why he could be available at the beginning of the third round.

Bobby Evans, OL, Oklahoma - Evans started at left and right tackle for a combined 40 starts at Oklahoma. He’s a bit short at 6-4, but his long arms and thick build could give him a shot to play right tackle in the NFL. If not, he could move inside to guard, where his ability in the run game will help him start early and his length could make him lethal as he develops.

Elgton Jenkins, OL, Mississippi State - Jenkins has started all over the line for the Bulldogs, five at left tackle, two at left guard, one at right guard before locking down the center position for 25 starts his junior and senior season. Jenkins offers a big body with more than enough athleticism and length to play outside at right tackle or inside at the guard position. His best work was as a center though, where he’s able to use that quickness and incredible play strength in the run game or in pass protection.

Michael Jordan, OL, Ohio State - 27 starts at left guard, 14 at center, Jordan is a unique player at 6-6 312lbs with smooth athleticism. He can man either interior offensive line position. Jordan’s athleticism and strength make him an ideal target if the Cardinals add a pick in the middle or late third round.
