The o-line draft class that this year brings is very interesting and has something that was not very evident last year.
Last year there were a lot of centers taken but this year i dont see a lot of guys that i really consider top notch. I dont think that mike iupati is anything special, just a big body that at the senior bowl showed poor teechinique b/c he tried to grab the deffender as opposed to really striking him. This will get you beat when a dwight freeny or even a derrick harvey.......( i might be pushin it)
The tackle class is very different from last years, this year there is a lot more depth at the tackle position in the first couple of rounds. Eugene Monroe really has exceptional athletic ability and had a specialty of pass protection coming out of college. i personally would not want any of this years o line for monroe ( i would like to hear some thoughts on this).
Earlier on i thought that Britton was a little better than monroe but that was possibly to the fact that monroe held out for a long time.
Britton looks strong, athletic and really has a great attitude toward the team. i really like brian bulaga from iowa as he manhandled Derrick Morgan in the orange bowl. Bruce cambpell has some upside out of maryland.
Anthony davis seems to be like a young Eugene monroe like in his sophomore year. Davis has a ton of potential but we dont know how that will translate into the nfl b/c some say that his attitude is not good.
I leave all the blue chippers out cuz russell okung would not fall past the first 5 picks and trent williams i think is worth nothing b/c he fell so much from last year, i mean he first started at tackle and finished up at center??
i Really like our o line the way it is perhaps drafting a center to replace meest once he leaves but thats for another story.
Id like to hear your thoughts on this years o line crop and whether you would take anyone above britton or monroe
