Taylor Lewan, OT Michigan

I would like this pick a lot. This coupled with restructuring Gross' contract would do a lot to strengthen the offensive line. The good news about this guy is that he is a project even though he is starter caliber. He only switched to OL when he was a senior in high school so is some respects he is still raw.

Fisher > Lewan

I like Lewan and he's certainly on my list of guys Im looking at for our selection come April.

He's mean and aggressive, and best suited as a pass protecting LT, exactly what this team needs as we continue to build out ourselves a modern NFL roster moving forward.

Don't want him. Had the most facemask penalties, both called & uncalled, against Clowney I've ever seen a lineman have. If he can't handle an NFL ready guy 1-on-1 without having to constantly resort to penalties that will be called in the NFL, there's no reason to draft him. He does have room to grow though, so he might be able to work that out of his game.

There's a couple of lineman in the draft coming out better than him, but sadly they might all be gone by the time our pick comes up.

Joeckel is the best OT in this class but I think Lewan will def be the nastiest and most physical.

Still a chance that Matthews goes pro

From GBNReport

(5:00 PM): Top OT to declare for draft … Texas A&M junior LT Luke Joeckel has indeed announced that he will be entering the 2013 draft where he is projected to be a top 5 pick. In fact, there is a chance that Joeckel could ultimately be the first player selected this coming April. The more interesting story at OT for the Aggies is what junior RT Jake Matthews opts to do. Matthews is also projected to be a first-round choice this year if he also leaves school this winter, however, there are reports that Matthews is seriously considering returning to school for his senior season with the intention of sliding over into Joeckel‘s LT slot and possibly becoming a top 5 pick himself in 2014. Stay tuned.

Lewan has decided to stay in school for his senior season. Take him off the list.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
