It isn't that they have trouble producing NFL OLs. While they usually aren't worth there first round grade, they are still NFL caliber players. They usually have 2-3 guys on the line capable of being at min. NFL back ups, which is nothing to sneeze at in college when most guys don't make it. Very few college teams can say the same. 

 

  It doesn't change anything I said. They get highly overrated and overdrafted. That's become a fact. For 17 years. You want to take one in the 1st-2nd, and be happy he's a backup? And it's not usually, it's all of them. How is it possible that all these guys bust compared to their draft position? Why do they have a similar issue with CBs? A position that is "supposed" to be Sabans specialty? What do those positions have in common?

He is better than Ereck Flowers who went to the giants at 10.

Clearly you didn't comprehend what I said. 

All I was doing was answer your question. You said you don't know why Alabama's running game is so good. I told you it's because they always have NFL caliber OLineman (just because you're a back up doesn't mean you aren't NFL caliber). Not sure why you took it a different way when I clearly said they weren't worth their draft grade.

 Well, it's because I don't agree with that either: There are many teams that have 2-3 players that will be at least NFL backups. In their own division, LSU, Tx AM, Auburn, Ole Miss all have that many if not more. A&M has a ton drafted. There certainly isn't enough difference to justify that as a reason they have more consistent success than anyone else.

We aren't taking Cam Robinson at 8. Almost every mock has him going 3rd out of OTs and DG has already said this is a bad class. If Cam was our target at 8, there would have been 0 reason to sign Kalil. I don't care if the contract has a 1 year out, if you think Cam is that good to be the number 8 pick, we would have spent that money elsewhere.

Not that I want Robinson at 8, but the argument that this is a bad class for tackles means that if you want one of the top 3, you're going to have to overdraft them. Same goes for QB's.
