    Rate the top NFL LTs

    List off your top LTs you would want if you were building a team from scratch so obviously age will play some part in this decision.

    Mine are...

    1. Joe Thomas
    2. Jamaal Brown
    3. Marcus McNeil
    4. Tony Ugoh
    5. Michael Roos
    6. Matt Light
    7. Jake Long
    8. D'brick Ferguson
    9. Levi Jones
    10. Levi Brown

    Hmm...that is somewhat true but I still think that Brown is one of the top 3 tackles in the league. He was absolutely dominant two years ago. People must remember that he played last year with a knee injury and also dealt with an injury to his left calf.

    Kind of funny how Peters gets more hype now than he did last year. In 2006, he had his best season but was rarely talked about in Top 5 LT circles and didn't make the Pro Bowl. He didn't have as good of a season in 07 (still really good though) and he gets Top 5 talk and makes the Pro Bowl.

    He is a stud, though. If I'm building a franchise, he's the LT I take 1st simply because he's more athletic and mobile than Joe Thomas, although Thomas is probably more technically refined right now. The scariest part about Peters is that he isn't a finished product right now and still has a very high potential. He's only played LT for 2 years in the NFL and he is playing excellent.
    Well Peters was at LT for only the second half of 2006, starting with the GB game. Of course our record improved greatly from that point and he was extremely good from the start there, but that's probably why he wasn't mentioned in the top guys. He was an absolute beast at RT, just amazing, and now he's a surefire top 5 LT in my book.

    yup....hopefully some of that Toronto money goes towards locking up him and evans and maybe trent if he has a good year.

    Exactly.

    I'll give him a couple of passes on the fact that the running game, QB situation and supporting cast wasn't ideal.

    However, one could question if those aspects "supposedly" his problem weren't what caused Ferguson to have a bad year and that his inconsistent play at such a pivotal position caused a lot of the other issues on offense.

    Just playing devils advocate here. I like his potential like a mentioned, he's still yet to show me that he can be considered a franchise LT though.

    He had a nice little run last year...and that was with garbage next to him. I expect him to be a very good LT this year.

    Who, Jerome Mathis or Todd Collins?

    Fair enough he isn't as athletic or flashy as the big name LTs, but he does a good, consistent job and rises to whatever challenges face him.

    I think it is notable that nothing much was made of the Giants Left ackle last year depsite it being basically a good left guard up against the NFLs top speed rushers in a new position.

    Another consideration, even with his new contract Diehl is paid well under half the money of what most of the other guys are on.
    I love diehl, my favorite olineman for us, but he's so much better at LG that he shouldn't be in the discussion for LTs. He's a good LT but he's only exceptional at LG. If a team had any of the guys mentioned in this thread diehl would be a guard instantly.
