Reid Fragel came out of high school as a tight end. Now, he leaves Ohio State as an offensive tackle after making the switch to tackle just one year ago.

He was able to be a part of Ohio State's 2012 undefeated season and has been training with former NFL offensive linemen LeCharles Bentley as prepares for the NFL draft.

Fragel finished top five at the NFL scouting combine for offensive linemen in the bench press with 33 reps, vertical with a 30.0 and broad jump with a 113.0.

We spoke to Reid about the position switch, his hopes and plans for the upcoming NFL draft and more.
