Zach Frazier, the now-former WVU offensive lineman, has entered first-round projections in’s latest mock draft. Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Media analyst, has Frazier going No. 29 to the Detroit Lions.

In the mock draft, Frazier would be the eighth OL taken off the board, out of the 10 projected to go in the first round.

Frazier appeared in 47 games for the Mountaineers over a four-year span. Frazier’s great career at West Virginia came to an end during the Baylor game on Nov. 25 when he suffered a leg injury. Frazier has continued to recover over the last few months and still earned an NFL Combine invitation.

The Fairmont, West Virginia native capped off his Mountaineer career as an All-American and finalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy.

WVU head coach Neal Brown showered Frazier with praise once it was clear his college career was over, highlighting how much his final play shows his intelligence as a player.

“I can’t say enough about Zach Frazier. So appreciative of him and his family. I think one play sums up who he is for his entire career, and I just hope our fanbase, a young man from Fairmont, I think he’s the best center in college football,” Brown said.
