4. Rashawn Slater - 13th overall, 2021 NFL Draft

Rashawn Slater is coming off an All-Pro rookie season after being Telesco's first round pick in 2021.

Telesco gets credit for turning the card in and actually getting Herbert some protection, however, Slater did fall right into his lap at the 13th pick.

When it's all said and done, Slater could very well end up higher on the list. However, given the players ahead of him and the fact he's only played one season, Slater comes in at number four on the list.

Slater projects to be the franchise left tackle protecting Justin Herbert and his blindside for the next decade. Impressing from the first snap in week 1, the Northwestern product shut down some of the league's premier pass rushers in Chase Young and Myles Garrett.
