Taylor Lewan OT Michigan

If the Panthers go OL with their # 1 draft pick, would Michigan Juniot OT Taylor Lewan be a reach.at # the 14 pick? Thoughts

{"STRENGTHS: With good height and length, he looks the part and has the frame to play on the left side at the next level, adding nearly 50 pounds since his senior year in high school. Possesses quick feet. A former defensive lineman, Lewan is known as a self-starter with a mean streak and nasty attitude on the field, but also became more of a leader as a junior in 2012.

He keeps his head on a swivel and has the competitive drive to win one-on-one battles. Demonstrates enough lateral agility and balance in his kick-slide to maintain the edge, while also possessing the strength to lock up his opponent.

WEAKNESSES: Needs to stay focused to cut down on penalties and use proper footwork and technique, not simply relying on his natural ability. Struggled with jab-steps and counters back inside when battling South Carolina star pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney in the Outback Bowl, and didn't excel in high-profile matchups against Alabama and Ohio State earlier in 2012. Tends to drop his head upon contact.

COMPARES TO: Jake Long, LT, Dolphins: Lewan looks like the second coming of Long wearing No. 77 in the Michigan maize and blue. Lewan, who only made the switch to offensive line as a senior in high school, is certainly behind the No. 1 overall pick of the 2008 draft in terms of development, but the size, athleticism and mentality are in place to resume the Wolverines' tradition of churning out quality NFL offensive linemen."}

This would be an awesome pick. We need an OT and he is an OT. There is one knock against him that will most likely eliminate him from consideration...

He is staying in school.
