OT Joseph Barksdale, LSU
6'5 - 315 lbs. - Senior

No highlights :(

Another of the top OT prospects for this upcoming draft. I don't really like the guy, not that high on him. As of right now, I seriously don't get why people say he could be a top 15 pick. Agree? Disagree?

ciron black was the top tackle last year too...these LSU linemen plummet lately. Im saying 3rd round at best right now because hes better than black and herman johnson, but still nothing that special

His play this season could place him in the Top 15 or he could easily fall towards the end like round 6...might be the prospect that needs to prove the most this upcoming season

I think the recent track record of LSU players in the League should have teams wary of Tigers entering the draft.

mediocre attitude iyam

Top 15? no way...with a good year I think he's a borderline first round. Would make a nice swing tackle for a team imo. Could start off at RT and move to LT down the road.

If he struggles this year though, I could see him take a Ciron Black like fall as has been mentioned. He's nothing spectacular, but he could be a solid starter down the line.

I think the only reason why Black fell so hard was because of a bad knee that might limit him in the very near future. IIRC.

I did a five game study of Barksdale, in which he gave up three sacks. He packs a very weak punch and doesn't appear to have excellent, left tackle-ish feet.

Hopefully, he'll improve this year, but I can see why National gave him a late round grade.
