Not a LT. His feet are too slow. He's a bulldozer RT prospect though.

I have always respected Dannos input. But we desperately need a LT to protect Brees and give him a little more time in the pocket.

If a LT needs anything it is feet. Which is why after Danno's input, there is no but on this guy... No feet = no mobility... no mobility = no pass block on Drew's back side.

Which is why he plays R. Tackle

Danno said it on the internet... good enough for me

Re: OT Fluker of Alabama turning Pro

Fluker's a run blocking right tackle. He not that great in pass protection even at RT, moving him to left tackle isn't even an option. I'd rather use our 3rd round pick on someone like Ricky Wagner from Wisconsin. That's just one option of course, but it'd be better than Fluker at the left tackle position.

And if we pick later in the first round, and he can start and have an impact in the running game as most good RT tackles do, then he's worth a first rounder > again, if he can start and have an impact...

I think Fluker would make one hell of a RG.
