    Tackles and Guards available

    There are so many OT's in this draft to be had in the first round. Most of top prospects seem to be projected going mid to late 1st round which would bode well for us if we decided to go that route. Most of them seem to hover right around the 305-315 pound mark which is a tad on the smallish side if you ask me but still capable of course. Otah is the big stud at 340. I'd love to see us get a monster over there whose got the quick feet to deal with the speed rushers but also the power to stand up just bulldoze in the running game.

    Im still not convinced they'd go with a T in the 1st round but if they do they have a lot to choose from.

    As far as Guards go there is value to be had in the 2nd and 3rd round here that we could easily pickup.

    1. Duke Robinson, Oklahoma
    2. Eric Young, Tennessee
    3. Robert Felton, Arkansas
    4. Andrew Crummey, Maryland
    5. Jacky Claude, Florida State
    6. Mike McGlynn, Pittsburgh
    7. Roy Schuening, Oregon State
    8. Drew Radovich, USC
    9. Jordan Grimes, Purdue

    Robinson is a run blocking machine.....I would worry about his pass blocking....He is the best OG in this draft.....I also like Roy Schuening from Oregon State......But really this draft class isn't really stacked at OG.....There is far more talent in the OT class....

    Yeah it's not near as deep at Guard as it is at Tackle this year so if they are going to take a Guard they're going to want to do it pretty early on in the draft because the talent really drops off after that list.

    Duke Robinson is only a JR...He has a few more days to declare. He and Mike Oher of Ole Miss are the only high quality Jr Olinemen not to decide yet

    Gosder Cherilus in the First and Crummey in the 3rd. Cherilus is a good all-around blocker and Crummey also. To hell with these "can run block" and "pass block" guys. I want linemen that do both!
