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.

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.

This makes the OT a bit more coveted than before. The only solid first rounders I see now are
Luke Joeckel
Eric Fisher
Lane Johnson
possibly DJ Fluker (right tackle)

Now fisher is hands down the second best tackle in the draft.

LOL at MrTouchdown for saying I don't watch college football if I think the second best tackle in the draft is a guy from Central Michigan.

Jake did say today that he is going back to school. Looks like OG or DT might be the best value for us.
