Cedric Dockery, OL, Texas

Few linemen have as much riding on their senior season as Texas right guard Cedric Dockery. The 6-4, 315 pound Garland, Texas native tore his ACL in his right knee six games into the 2006 season. The 2007 season was solid, but the injury lingered. Still, he was an important part of the offensive line that helped the offense rank in the top 20 in total offense, rushing yards and points per game. And it is not like the ground game struggled at all with Jamaal Charles rushing for 1,619 yards. That ranks fifth all-time on the Longhorns single season rushing list. However, much of the success of Texas' line in 2007 can be attributed to Tony Hills, who was drafted in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Now this is Dockery's time to lead the unit. In order to be a leader, he will have to be healthy. Dockery knows a thing or two about what it takes to play in the NFL. His brother Derrick is the starting left guard for the Buffalo Bills and one of the most durable players in the league. At this point the younger Dockery is considered an early second day selection, but with a big senior season he could slide up into the second round. 11/24 Update: The Texas offensive line has had some problems this year. They were manhandled by a stout Texas Tech defense and failed to be tough and physical when they needed to the most. The team's leading rusher is also the quarterback, which is never a good thing for the o-line. It is not really the line's fault since the Longhorns have five backs who have at least 40 attempts and none who have over 80, but the ground game could certainly be better and the line can certainly take some of the blame. 3/24 Update: Dockery has not separated himself from most of the other offensive guards in this class. He was not at the NFL Scouting Combine and that means he has to have an impressive Pro Day. If he does, he could be a fourth round selection, but otherwise his stock will slip down toward the end of the draft.
