Ezra Cleveland is the best player in the 2020 NFL Draft you have not heard about

NFL: Combine Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

When the 2020 NFL Draft process gets back underway, who knows when that will be, one name that you will begin to hear more and more about is that of Ezra Cleveland of Boise State.

The left tackle wowed at the 2020 NFL Combine, putting up numbers that few have before and when you look at his career with the Broncos, the question becomes; what took the media so long to figure it out?

The Cardinals have plans to bring Cleveland in for a a visit whenever that time may come, but when you look at Cleveland there are a couple of things that stand out.

From an athletic standpoint, he is a nearly flawless prosect:

From a size and movement standpiont there are few peers in his class.

When you factor in the fact that Cleveland started 40 games in three seasons with the Broncos all at left tackle and got better and better every season he should be mentioned higher.

However, a team may reap the benefits of a loaded tackle class.

Cleveland has been projected to go on day two and if the Cardinals decide to bypass the tackle class in round one, Cleveland could be a major reason why.

Cleveland projects out as a high end talent, with guard comps as Joe Thuney and tackle comps as Andre Dillard.

When you look at a player like Cleveland, you are reminded that day two will provide a chance to draft a really good offensive lineman as well.

Cleveland could be the best.
