OT

1. Gabe Carimi [6'7" 315lbs.] Top 20

Solid in all phases and showed he can play OG as well as OT.

2. Nate Solder [6'8" 314lbs] Top 20

I am not a huge Nate Solder fan, but you cannot teach what he has.

3. Tyron Smith [6'5" 290lbs] Top 25

Waiting for the weigh in, but LT potential.

4. Anthony Costanzo [6'7" 305lbs] 1st-2nd

Was up and down at the Senior Bowl, I have questions about his playing strength.

5. Derek Sherrod [6'6" 312lbs] 1st-2nd

Reminds me of Chris Williams from a couple of years ago, I would call him a FINESSE OT.

6. Marcus Gilbert [6'7" 329lbs] 2nd

Impressive size and decent feet that make him a RT or OG candidate.

7. James Brewer [6'6" 323lbs] 2nd-3rd

He is stiff and limited athletically, but he has big time power and looks like a RT.

8. Chris Hairston [6'6" 325lbs] 3rd

My wild card OLmen as he has an intriguing blend of power and speed, but technique questions linger.

OG

1. Marcus Cannon [6'5" 350lbs] 1st-2nd

Cannon has up and down projections on him, but he looks like a dominant physical presence. He reminds me of Jett Otah with better feet and less of a hand punch.

2. Mike Pouncey [6'4" 313lbs.] 1st-2nd

He is not his brother, but he is still an explosive 314lbs player as long as he does not need to snap the ball.

3. Ben Ijalana [6'3" 320lbs.] 2nd

Great combination of size and ability to finish, was a punisher against lower competition.

4. Danny Watkins [6'4" 312lbs] 2nd

He would be the #1 OG if he was not 27 years old, a mauler in the run game.

5. Rodney Hudson [6'2" 292lbs.] 2nd

Not for everyone, but I was impressed with the amount of push the little guy gets in the run game.

6. Clint Boling [6'5" 310lbs.] 3rd

He looked good at OG in the Senior Bowl and has solid physical skills and good technique.

7. James Carpenter [6'5" 315lbs.] 3rd

Was the suprise of the Senior Bowl and his feet and power make him someone to watch going forward.

8 John Moffitt [6'5" 308lbs.] 3rd

Again age is a problem because he is 25 years old. Solid unspectaculer fighter that makes up for having 0 physical ability.

C

Stefen Wisniewski [6'3" 308lbs.] 2nd

The only center who I think can come in and start day 1.

Jake Kirkpatrick [6'2" 304lbs] 4th

No physical ability, but a hard worker.

Tim Barnes [6'4" 300lbs.] 5th

His size and physicality are interesting.

Brandon Fusco [6'3" 300lbs] 5th

Does not play as big as he looks, but you have to love a good neck roll.

Kris O'Dowd [6'4" 300lbs] 6th

I do not think he could block traffic with a stop sign.

Tyron Smith is a freak of nature. I've never seen a O-line man have a six pack..

The OT class is so bad it hurts.

The feet yes...but man they are different. Chris Williams had very short arms for LT standard, Sherrod has an amazingly long wing span. Sherrod has a much bigger frame than Chris Williams as well.There was something else as well but I cant remember now

Yeah Chris Williams had really short arms for a tackle (less than 33 inches I think). He had great feet coming out of Vandy though. Gave up no sacks in over 1,500 consecutive snaps in the SEC, that's pretty impressive.

Funny. I have seen them with whole kegs.

This is a very unimpressive group. Branden Albert would be the top pick of this group. Michael Oher would have gone top 5 overall.

We been spoiled.

He has been a disaster for the Bears.

Softest OL I've ever seen.

Sherrod does not play nearly as soft as Chris Williams, at all ... he blocks on the second level very nicely and stonewalls his guy in pass protection ... never got the Williams hype and as a Lions fan, was ecstatic when they took him.

Yeah I don't get the Chris Williams comparisons. Sherrod is not a passive finesse guy IMO.
