A year ago, we were all about the Dalton Risner hype train. As one of the best available offensive linemen in the 2019 NFL Draft, many of us wanted Risner on the Bears. Obviously, they had no shot to snag him without possessing a first-round pick.

This year, though, Pace could go after one of Risner’s ex-teammates. Scott Frantz is a well-experienced starting offensive tackle out of Kansas State, and would bring a ton of value as a late-round pick. Frantz has now started the last three seasons for the Wildcats.

Standing 6-foot-5 and weighing in just over 300 pounds, Frantz has an ideal frame for an offensive tackle. He has a real strong, heavy base which allows him to move side to side without falling off balance.

Not only does he have a heavy base, but packs some power with his arms as well. He’s a strong kid who will show plenty of physicality in both run and pass blocking. Strength is not an issue, here.

But, where Frantz will struggle is in terms of quickness, both with his feet and hands. Where he excels in his power is where he also lacks in agility. That’s something that he will have to work on in a big way if he’s to be cut out for a lengthy NFL career.
