Both ranked by NFL.com pre combine analysis as 2-3rd rounders. Theres still a ton of time and so many variables left for both, but nice to see both ranked so high coming in, especially Mauti.
Also some love for what Charlie Fisher did at Miami OH

Absolutely love both Mauti and Hodges, but no way Mauti goes before the 5th, and Hodges would be extremely lucky to go in the 3rd.

Hodges drafts status will all depend on his combine numbers imo.
Possibly, but he's going to be labeled scheme specific. He's really only designed as a WILL in a 4-3 scheme, and he's best suited for a Tampa 2.
I'd love to see him go in the 2nd, but realistically, I don't see it happening...............but, all it takes is one team to fall in love with him, so I guess you never really know.
All I know is every PSU fan will be pulling for him to go as early as possible (mister obvious here). Bottom line though I just want to see him stick on a team and stay heathy and have a decent career...
My question is this .....How many ILBs are really that much better than Mauti? Now I know that you could say maybe Nico Johnson and Minter. Everywhere I look he is rated 10th best or lower. Maybe I have not been able to watch enough games but the only thing to hold him back would be injury in my opinion.
Hodges will also make a nice addition to a team. I am not sure where he is best suited, but he can't be worse than some of the smaller ILBs in a 3-4 and he probably could play WLB in a 4-3 nicely.
I am not saying we have the best players every year, but I think these two young men will be playing on Sundays if they are given the chance.
Try this site, Mauti's rated 4th. Hodges is 12th, though.
