Post Senior Bowl OL Rankings
1. Gabe Carimi [6'7" 315lbs.] Top 20
Solid in all phases and showed he can play OG as well as OT.
2. Nate Solder [6'8" 314lbs] Top 20
I am not a huge Nate Solder fan, but you cannot teach what he has.
3. Tyron Smith [6'5" 290lbs] Top 25
Waiting for the weigh in, but LT potential.
4. Anthony Costanzo [6'7" 305lbs] 1st-2nd
Was up and down at the Senior Bowl, I have questions about his playing strength.
5. Derek Sherrod [6'6" 312lbs] 1st-2nd
Reminds me of Chris Williams from a couple of years ago, I would call him a FINESSE OT.
6. Marcus Gilbert [6'7" 329lbs] 2nd
Impressive size and decent feet that make him a RT or OG candidate.
7. James Brewer [6'6" 323lbs] 2nd-3rd
He is stiff and limited athletically, but he has big time power and looks like a RT.
8. Chris Hairston [6'6" 325lbs] 3rd
My wild card OLmen as he has an intriguing blend of power and speed, but technique questions linger. OG
1. Marcus Cannon [6'5" 350lbs] 1st-2nd
Cannon has up and down projections on him, but he looks like a dominant physical presence. He reminds me of Jett Otah with better feet and less of a hand punch.
2. Mike Pouncey [6'4" 313lbs.] 1st-2nd
He is not his brother, but he is still an explosive 314lbs player as long as he does not need to snap the ball.
3. Ben Ijalana [6'3" 320lbs.] 2nd
Great combination of size and ability to finish, was a punisher against lower competition.
4. Danny Watkins [6'4" 312lbs] 2nd
He would be the #1 OG if he was not 27 years old, a mauler in the run game.
5. Rodney Hudson [6'2" 292lbs.] 2nd
Not for everyone, but I was impressed with the amount of push the little guy gets in the run game.
6. Clint Boling [6'5" 310lbs.] 3rd
He looked good at OG in the Senior Bowl and has solid physical skills and good technique.
7. James Carpenter [6'5" 315lbs.] 3rd
Was the suprise of the Senior Bowl and his feet and power make him someone to watch going forward.
8 John Moffitt [6'5" 308lbs.] 3rd
Again age is a problem because he is 25 years old. Solid unspectaculer fighter that makes up for having 0 physical ability. C
Stefen Wisniewski [6'3" 308lbs.] 2nd
The only center who I think can come in and start day 1.
Jake Kirkpatrick [6'2" 304lbs] 4th
No physical ability, but a hard worker.
Tim Barnes [6'4" 300lbs.] 5th
His size and physicality are interesting.
Brandon Fusco [6'3" 300lbs] 5th
Does not play as big as he looks, but you have to love a good neck roll.
Kris O'Dowd [6'4" 300lbs] 6th
I do not think he could block traffic with a stop sign.
I want linemen that knock the heads off of defensive linemen. unlike the soft chris williams
Solder and Costanzo are pretender. Either draft Carimi. Sherrod or Tyron Smith, or draft another postion besides OT, preferably interior o-line.
