    An excellent breakdown of most of the OL's in the draft by scouts. If, following Matt Light's retirement, we are to draft someone for the OL, you can probably find your favourite prospect from this list:

    Rating the NFL draft prospects: Offensive linemen - JSOnline

    My two favourites:



    Could play OG as well as RT.

    A former TE playing OT you say? Sounds familiar. And being described as a "punishing run blocker" also makes him sound like a swing OG/OT player which is exactly what we need, if at all.

    Seems like a lot of the scouting reports question the passion of these lineman.

    I like Mosley at ROT. A bit of a knee bender. Sinks the hips well. Really capable of driving out on run blocking. He needs some coaching and technique work, but we have a really good Oline coach for that.

    I like Josh LeRebius from SMU mainly because I work with his second cousin and it would be wonderful if he had to start cheering for the Pats. :)

    Re: Offensive Linemen. This Is A Must Read

    I am surprised that one of the scouts still has a job with thinking like this:
    "Not a bad kid at all," another scout said. "I just don't know if football is that important to him. He was raised by women, which bothers me. I mean, how tough can he be? It's not his fault, but it's still reality."

    Shows me that the scout is a chauvinist who is absolutely clueless about how tough women are when it comes to pain and such...

    I think that it's telling that Mike Brewster didn't make the top 5 of centers on that list..

    Sometimes these young adults get crucified for not staying in school. This is one of the cases you could say that lost a ton of money by staying.

    I still think Dante could do some tremendous things with this kid.

    It shows me that many professional scouts are absolute morons, as are the teams that hire them.

    I would hope that the "if you're so smart about evaluating football players why don't you work for NFL teams" people should reconsider their position. The fact that a "profession" scout/evaluator would consider whether a player was raised by women or how many red-haired QBs have been successful in the league casts serious doubt on how much teams want to win as opposed to not upsetting the established order among their peers.
