#3. Joe Haeg
Joe Haeg is an under-recruited giant who went on to be a staple at LT for one of the most dominant college football programs in history.
Haeg was a walk-on at North Dakota State University.
As a junior Heag had earned the starting left tackle position. There he earned All-American honors as the Bison took home their fourth consecutive National Championship.
With a 6-foot-5 and 300-plus-pound frame, Haeg is a very athletic LT displaying quick feet and providing excellent pass blocking.
His on-the-field vision is one of his best assets – often recognizing pre-snap blitzes with excellent communication to his teammates.
Green Bay has a decision to make with David Bakhtiari, but even with a big deal for Bakhtiari, Haeg would make a great addition for depth at the tackle position and a potential star of the future at either tackle or guard, if need be.
Carson Wentz has quickly ascended to the top of some draft boards. Haeg was an anchor at the side of Wentz, providing great protection during the Bison’s fifth straight National Championship season. Haeg is also a great run blocker.
His work ethic is unquestionable as well. From stories of a rather skinny framed kid who couldn’t bench 225 pounds when he arrived to North Dakota State, to a towering young man who can bench over 400 pounds – It’s a lot for any NFL team to work with.
