  • 08 2nd Tier Tackles

    Everyone knows that Sam Baker and Jake Long are clearly the top tackles in next years draft and look to be top 10 picks(although that can easily change).

    Where do you see guys like Barry Richardson, Kirk Barton, Gosder Cherilus and Tony Hills Jr. going. Are they mid 1st guys or more 2nd-3rd rounders. For me, Hills Jr. reminds me a lot of Ugoh and is a 2nd-3rd round prospect. Barry Richardson reminds me a little of Marcus McNiel and is a 1st rounder. I don't have a comparison for Barton, but he's a fringe first to me. Cherlius is incredibly solid but I don't know if he has the upside to go round 1. Are there any other possible late risers that could go round 1?

    Um, we really have to see next season play out before we see who the 2nd tier guys are.

    I like Ryan Clady if he commits out of Boise State. Also (sr.) Chris Williams out of Vanderbilt.

      I think Tony Hills ends up being the #1 OT in this class. He's got unreal athleticism and feet for an offensive tackle. I certainly don't think Baker or Jake Long has secured that top spot.

      I like Richardson too. Barton and Cherlius are a step down to me.

        I think there could be as many as 4 OTs that go in the 1st round in 2008. Long, Baker, Richardson, and Hillis all seem like locks to me

          i think Williams of Vandy can. 6'7" 315 LT that didnt allow a sack after the first game in the tough SEC, if he can do it again, i think he has a good chance, as he was 240lbs(i believe) comin out with great quickness, and he still has it. He was recognized as a 3rd team All-american, so u know he can ball. dark horse first rounder

            Michael Oher and Ryan Clady could make next year's OT class spectacular. That's good for teams like the Giants who may be drafting an OT on day one next year.

            So for next year these are the guys we have that are possible first day selections:

            Jake Long
            Sam Baker
            Barry Richardson
            Michael Oher*
            Gosder Cherilus
            Ryan Clady*
            Tony Hills
            Chris Williams
            Kirk Barton

              i thought i heard that oher may have to move inside in the pros because of his size or something though

                That's still up in the air. He would make a great OG too.

                  Chris Williams needs more love, hes a possible 1st round LT, hes quick enough to be in the NFL.

                    I'm in love with Barry Richardson from Clemson. Big guy, but has good feet....and i've been vouching for Tony Hills for a long time now

                    one of my personal favorite tackles and one I think will eventually be a top 5 pick is Ciron Black from LSU.....no relation

                      I like the OG from LSU. Herman Johnson I think? 6'8" and looks like he's a legit 360 pounds.

                        How about Pedro Sosa? He's really went under the radar but was all-conference last year and is on a couple pre-season AA teams. He was a big-time recruit out of HS that has quietly lived up to the hype.

                          Don't forget Jeremy Zuttah, his partner anchoring the right side. I think he'll go higher. Possible first day pick. Rutgers whole OLine in general looks very promising this year with the addition of blue chip prospect Anthony Davis.

                          And you always have to watch out for those high profile recruits. This is often the year they break out. Among those not mentioned: Eugene Monroe from UVA and Reggie Youngblood from Miami.

                            Who are the tackle prospects projected for late in the first, at RT? I get a feeling SD could pick one up and kick Olivea inside where he belongs once Goff becomes a free agent.
