The 2007 NFL Draft is less than two weeks away, so THN is taking a look at each position's top five prospects. Up first are the offensive tackles:

Name: Joe Thomas
Class: Senior
School: Wisconsin
Height: 6065
Weight: 311 pounds

Thomas is a bona fide stud. Great technique, great leverage, great quickness, great everything. He'll protect the blind side of some lucky franchise's quarterback for the next decade. A guaranteed top five pick, a justifiable top three pick.

Name: Levi Brown
Class: Senior
School: Penn State
Height: 6054
Weight: 323 pounds

Great technique, good hands, good leverage, good power. Needs to work on a mean streak to excel at the next level, but has all the tools. Should hear his name in the first half of the first round.

Name: Joe Staley
Class: Senior
School: Central Michigan
Height: 6060
Weight: 306 pounds

Tremendous athlete with great up-side. He moved over from tight end as a sophomore and still needs a little bit of grooming, but he will surely continue to learn, grow, and get better. Mid-to-late first rounder.

Name: Tony Ugoh
Class: Senior
School: Arkansas
Height: 6052
Weight: 301 pounds

Great technique, great movement, and good leverage. Ugoh is a champion shot putter, so he has great strength but he needs to learn to use it more effectively in the NFL. Late first rounder.

Name: Ryan Harris
Class: Senior
School: Notre Dame
Height: 6044
Weight: 305 pounds

Good technique, good punch, and great quickness. He lacks a little size, but was a four year starter at a major program. He could actually move inside to guard at the next level. Should be drafted some time on the first day, but not in the first round.
