The “Deep OT class” may not be as deep at LT in scouts eyes


Recommended Posts

Honestly, that's fine with me. Seems like a lot of the best OTs over the past couple of decades are the guys who scouts are trying to pigeonhole as RTs only or even kicking them inside to OG. Scouts are to LTs what the Huddle is to #1 WRs. If the guy isn't a slam dunk HOFer he just doesn't belong. The problem for the scouts is that a lot of those guys have been busting over the past 20 years.

Darrisaw a RT? lol 

The depth in this class is pretty great. I just doubt you are going to want to start one right away at LT for a playoff contending team.

So verge do you agree if Slater/Sewell aren’t there that Surtain is the pick like has been reported today?  Assuming chase and Pitts are gone of course.  Or do we have Surtain above Slater on our board?

I'd assume Waddle over Surtain.

Thats why you don't play games. Get your LT for ten years at 8, CB/S in the second and a G in the 3rd

By that logic we've been playing games for well over a decade (and losing)

Who is the OL from East Carolina?

I have a buddy that went there, and he says he is going be a player

I know right.  I feel like last year's draft was pretty predictable.  It was pretty much pre-ordained that we were going to take Brown or Simmons.  This year, who the hell knows.  We might end up with a QB!

We were never taking Simmons last year.

Left tackles are a rare evasive beast. Many will end up either a guard or restricted to the right side.  

In my opinion the breakdown of tackles goes like this. 

Sewell - Oregon has been putting out some quality lineman recently.  Sewell is the best yet. Certain Left 

Darrisaw -  Has the quickness to pass protect.  Moves well but needs to improve pulling and runblocking.  Possible Left 

Liam Eichenberg - technique, quickness, and projects well to the left.  Certain Left

Samuel Cosmi - Has the agilty and mirrors well.  Underrated guy that can stick at left.  

Then you got the maulers who are a bit bigger, some exceptionally so. 

Teven, Mayfield, and Lucas are nasty physical blockers that are either raw or lack the explosive quickness to stick on the left.  Spencer Brown and Drew Himmelman are giants even compared to other large men but leverage can work against them.
