Default Offensive Tackles

this looks like a solid group that is only going to get better leading up to the combine. as of now it's looking like sure bets are:

Luke Joeckel
Dallas Thomas
Taylor Lewan
Eric Fisher
DJ Fluker
Justin Pugh
Kyle Long

Thomas is definitely going to be a Guard. I think Long and Fluker may ultimately end up there too. Taking out Matthews also, weakens this class a lot.

I would probably add Lane Johnson of Oklahoma to that list as well.

I think Fluker will be a very good RT in the pros. He may have trouble with an occasional guy who has the power/speed combo off the edge, but there aren't that many like that. If so, he can a little TE chip help.

I consider Rodger Saffold a pretty good LT when healthy. Are all these guys (and Lane Johnson) better than Saffold?

No.

Joeckel, Lewan and Fisher are. but I think Saffold is better than the others mentioned.

And even if Saffold is the answer there you're probably still short a tackle and even a guard.

My guess is where the Rams are picking you're probably looking at Fisher, Fluker and a Chance Womack (g)

I'm in as long as you mean Fluker in rd 2.

If we throw in Matthews in there, this could be a top heavy draft with good OTs. The NFL is sorely lacking in good OTs so this crop is coming at a good time

Rams certainly need O-line help. I would not be sad if they went tackle/tackle or tackle/guard. They also need to address a need at safety and linebacker. Another TE wouldn't hurt, either. Would love for them to get the kid from Stanford if he is available in second round.

This crop of OTs is the deepest I can remember - such amazing quality and depth

I think it is interesting how Matthews situation parallels Tyron Smith. For Smith, he knew entering early was the best option, since Kalil would have been a junior his senior year. It worked out for him, it would have been optimal i guess to have a year of college at LT. Matthews has a year to put up or shut up in college at LT before being thrown to the wolves.

Even without Matthews, I think this could be a really nice tackle draft. I actually think it can be the most top heavy of recent memory, between Loeckel and Lewan. That being said, I would HIGHLY doubt it would match 2008. That draft had the following:

1-1 Jake Long
1-12 Ryan Clady
1-14 Chris Williams (woops)
1-15 brandon Albert
1-17 Gosder Cherilus
1-19 Jeff Otah
1-21 Sam Baker
1-26 Duane Brown

He looked good at OG playing for the Rams late in the year. I hope the Rams can resign him and let coach Beadroux keep working with him.
