Who do you guys like out there this year?

Zane Beatles from Utah has quick feet and powerful lower body at about 6'3 320

LT from Arizona State Lauano Mauovo or something Samoan. He is too short to play LT at about 6'2 1/2 or 6'3 310 but has exceptional feet and strength.

Ducasse is one who will pop up in discussions like this. I definitely believe that he will be tried out at tackle for sure, but if that doesn't work out, you should get a great guard out of him.

Iuipati is possibly the reverse. I think he could at least make a pretty good RT for some team if they wanted.

Beadles was the guy I was going to mention. He is the first to come to mind.

I was thinking Chris Scott and Ciron Black personally... Bigger types, better for lines like Dallas, San Diego, etc.

Look out for Clint Boling next year. This year: no clue.

Orlando Franklin from Miami has played both positions extremely well during his time at UM. He should be playing LT next season for Miami (unless Henderson signs) and is definitely a guard prospect.

Roger Saffold from Indiana would make an excellent Left Guard. At 6'4 1/2 312, there is some doubt that he'll have the length to play Left Tackle. Inside at Guard, Saffold could be a 2nd-3rd Round player easily.

Kyle Calloway from Iowa and Zane Beadles are the two that have been mentioned. Can't help but to think Vladimir Ducasse would challenge for top OG value in the draft if you viewed him in that light at the next level.

Shawn Lauvao I think.

There is no chance Orlando Franklin plays OT in the NFL. I don't even like him that much at LG. He is too slow off his stance. His position at the next level is RG.

Ciron Black is a good call.

The Calloway guy from Iowa.

And his more beloved teammate, Bulaga. I think he could be a dominant LG.

Calloway actually played some RG in the Orange Bowl, and sprung Wegher's touchdown run with a nice pull to seal the game.

He recently measured in at 6'6 1/2 322 at the shrine combine.

I think Calloway, Saffold, Ciron Black all come to mind. I think Sam Young (if he can play low enough, he is not a good RT prospect), Adam Ulatoski and maybe Chris Scott could slide inside also.

Chris Scott, most definitely.

+1 on Scott...reminds me of Brandon Albert.

Not at all. Albert was a guard in college who was so talented and so athletic that they moved him to LT in the NFL. Chris Scott is a college LT who isn't athletic enough to play OT so he'll have to move inside to guard.

Anthony Davis would probably be the best.

Anthony Davis would probably be the best.

This is what concerns me with those mocking him to Oakland. In no way could we afford to have another top 10 tackle kicked inside to guard. What may help prevent that are rumors we are moving from the ZBS to more of a power-run scheme, which should ease his transition to the pros, as long as he keeps his weight in check.

I was thinking Ciron Black as well, but I don't watch enough LSU games to really get a good feel if he would be a good OG in the NFL.

The best LT that nobody has ever heard of.

Zane Beadles was in playing Guard a couple times during games that I watched.
