top 3 OT in the draft

kalif barnes Strengths: Amazing athletic ability for the position and a man his size...Shows great footwork...Very quick and agile...Has long arms...Very experienced and a team leader...Still possesses a lot of upside.
Weaknesses: Not a dominator in the running game...Plays too high at times...Can still get bigger and stronger...Not very powerful at the point of attack.
Notes: Former defensive tackle who will definately be a workout warrior...You can bet some team will take a chance on someone with this guys physical tools and potential early in the draft.

jammal brown
Strengths: Is very athletic...Has long arms...Agile with quick feet and moves well...Does an excellent job in pass protection...Has a lot of experience...May be able to play left tackle in the pros...Can still improve.
Weaknesses: Not as big or strong as you would like...Not a dominator in the running game...Not all that tough or physical...Lacks a killer instinct and doesn't finish his blocks...Needs to show a better work ethic.
Notes: Won the Outland Trophy as a senior...The best player on one of the best offensive lines in the nation...May be the best all around tackle in the draft but doesn't have the upside that Alex Barron does...Could come off the board early with tackle being such an in-demand position.
baron
Strengths: Tremendous athleticism...Has long arms...Excellent in pass protection...Very quick feet and good balance...A natural left tackle...Good size...Still has a lot of upside and potential.
Weaknesses: May not have that killer instinct and doesn't always finish his blocks...Battled some injuries early in his career...Doesn't have a lot of experience and is still raw...Has to work on mastering the nuances of the position.
Notes: Widely regarded as the top senior offensive lineman available...Not in the same class as Tony Boselli, Jon Ogden or Orlando Pace but may be just a notch below...The top offensive tackle in the Draft and should be one of the elite players available.


other than Baron..the other two seem to be projects and I don't see baron there at 16..but maybe....

it sez of brown.

barron is rated higher by most but we will be fortunate if he is still there for the taking at#16. barnes is projected in the lower third of the first round. still i wouldnt be terribly disappointed if they went need to him. burnett at LB similarly, lower first projection but could use him.

Look close. That\'s actually a quote about Barron.

I wouldn\'t mind getting Brown because he at worst adds some depth to the tackle position and at best is ready to start right away. And I certainly wouldn\'t mind getting Barron, but he\'s definitely a long shot.
Other than those two I don\'t think any OT is deserving of our first rounder. I\'d rather get someone (at another position) who has proven himself instead of someone with supposed potential.
