    Sporting News has him ranked 30th overall amongst OTs...

    War Room analysis
    Strengths: Shows good quickness to get downfield to block on screen passes. Uses hands well, rarely allowing defenders to get into pads. Shows solid technique in pass protection. Is smart and adept at picking up stunts and blitzes. Is patient and lets pass rushers come to him. Is an efficient run blocker.

    Weaknesses: Struggles to make blocks in open field; allows feet to get too close together and loses balance. Gets tossed aside by defenders in open field. Must add bulk to handle NFL defensive linemen. Must learn to maintain blocks a tad longer.

    Bottom line: Oldenburg, a left tackle in college, projects as an NFL right tackle. He shows good technique, athleticism and smarts to become a solid backup.

    Are we back at weak ex TE's as our o-line projects.
    Dear Clint is weak, short armed and can't run block. Just like Gorin, Ashworth before him. Draft Kyle Young ffs!

    He is competition for Britt. More likely he will be on Practice Squad and cut like Stevenson last year. We did need camp competition and a youngster in case of injuries, since our other OT practice squad player retired.

    I agree but I wish they drafted bigger interior lineman to develop. With so many teams witching to a 3-4 def a mauler at RG will come in handy in a few years.

    Gillette is in the middle of BFE. The largest open coal pit in the world is about 10 miles away. Lots of oil rigs there. Big energy over there...

    Sup everybody I'm new here and a Diehard Broncos fan. But I joined just because you guys drafted Clint. Hes from my hometown and my Highschool. I use to watch him play as a Tightend when I was in like 8th grade. His dad was my football coach so its really cool to see someone that I know actually get drafted. I wish him luck and I hope they he makes the Pats and becomes sucessfull. Hopefully he will Make my hometown proud. Hes the first player from my School drafted in the NFL. :)

    Welcome! Clint certainly is coming to a good situation for him as an enrollee in the now world famous Dante Scarnecchia Academy for Big Ugly Blockers (the Pats' Offensive Line Coach does a great job with late round talent). He looks like the more likely of the two Tackles drafted to be developed for the coveted Practice Squad Swing Tackle surprise. Hilliard, the other Tackle, is looking more like a player they move inside to Guard.

    Thanks. And yea I like the situation he is put in to. I'm definatly rooting for him. The other day I was talking to someone about it and I said: It looks like he will win a Superbowl in a few years. I'm hoping for New England @ Denver in the title game. :)

    Heres an article that our new paper had on him after the draft:

    Pretty cool article.
