View Full Version : OT Roger Saffold

What are your thoughts on him? Apparently his stock is rocketing like a meteor up draft boards. Do you agree or disagree with the experts? First round guy?

Does he project to tackle? With good combines from Trent Williams, Mike Iupati and Bruce Campbell i dont see him getting into the 1st round as a matter of fact i see him going after Ducasse and Brown in the second round to say nothing of Jason Fox. That makes him the 10th O-lineman taken?

He'll go ahead of Ducasse and Fox. The tackles are gonna go quick in this draft so Saffold will go earlier than most people are expecting.

I have him right behind Brown in my rankings as the 9th best o-lineman but i have 10 linemen that graded out as first or second rounders. As for Saffold, I think his best fit would be at RT or LG but, like Brandon Albert, I think he could have decent success at LT.
As a LT prospect I see him with less upside and somewhere in the late 2nd or early 3rd in terms of value but I think he grades out higher for teams that see him as a RT or G. Im not sure I buy the hype enough to give him a first round grade but I dont see why he wouldnt go early 2nd given the probability that theres a run on tackles in the first.

I have him as the #2 guard prospect in this draft. I don't think tackle is his best fit, especially not LT, and I do think the mid second round is a good area for him to go.

Solid early-mid 2nd round pick. Versatile, can play 4 positions on the O-line. Will be very attractive to some teams.

I think Zone Blocking teams could see Saffold as a Left/Right Tackle prospect, but ultimately I see him inside at Guard in the NFL. As Shane said, solid early-mid 2nd Round pick.

He aced the interview sessions at the combine, someone fell in love with him and will be picked between 35-50.
