    Looking back at the tackles over the last 20 years not named Light and Armstrong ...
    honorable mention to Steve "Big House" Moore who I liked a lot.

    Perhaps I missed one here or there and I picked 20 years because the O-Line in the mid 80's was good.
    Some of them were okay...a few good games here and there none stuck around long enough to matter.

    Just a draft pick at this point but here's the names he's up against.
    So am I optimistic ... yup. Will he be the RT ... can he beat out Kaczur? I hope so.

    Nick Kaczur
    Ryan O'Callahan
    Tom Ashworth
    Brandon Gorin
    Adrian Klemm
    Kenyatta Jones
    Greg Randall
    Grant Williams
    Max Lane ... :ugh:
    Ed Ellis
    Zefross Moss
    Scott Rehberg
    William Roberts
    Pat Harlow
    Todd Jones
    Eugene Chung
    Freddie Childress
    Stan Clayton
    Chris Gambol
    David Viaene
    Damian Johnson
    David Douglas
    Tom Rehder

    Re: Vollmer and Tackles of the Last 20 Years.

    You are right to separate out Armstrong and Light. We have had quality LT's in those two.

    However, which RT's do you consider better than average out of this list. How many startd the pro-bowl more than once? How many are HOF bound?

    Looking at this list of RT's, Vollmer looks like a pretty good prospect.

    Zefross Moss was not spectacular by any means but he was decent for a RT, and i remember him playing with that huge cast on one of his arms so for basically playing with one good arm, not too bad.

    Moss was okay ... we got him for a 4th round pick but we got him at the end of his career.
    The best thing about Moss was that it moved Max Lane to guard ... too bad not the bench.

    I may be in the minority here, but I think that Kaczur is a pretty good RT. Although Light is certainly better, I still think we could use an upgrade at LT more than one at RT.

    Agreed. Kaczur is a quality RT. Check his stats.

    Re: Vollmer and Tackles of the Last 20 Years.

    You're not in the minority. Plenty of us on this board think that Kaczur is just fine. My main concern has always been the health at RG. Last years drop off when Neal was out, was very noticeable. Yates made me nuts, but Levoir (sp) looks like good depth at tackle.

    Oh man, don't remind me. I'll be downright surprised if the Penn State kid can't beat out Yates on the depth chart.

    Re: Vollmer and Tackles of the Last 20 Years.

    Im thinking we see the same 5 starters (barring injuries), but the quality in depth should be alot better this year. I hope :D

    Definitely, same 5 starters would be fantastic. Let's just pray that Neal can stay healthy.

    Kazur can run block a bit but only at the line ... isn't worth crap upfield and his feet are like in mud when he blocks a guy with some speed ... I think he sucks way bad ... the weakest link of the starters last year.

    Re: Vollmer and Tackles of the Last 20 Years.

    JSN asked for some facts. I saved you some time. Here's some info about Kaczur being better than you think :D

    Point of attack: Patriots run blocking - AFC East - ESPN

    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/10/216003-sacks-allowed.html

    Looking at his stats, one could conclude that he is NOT that bad. Making you, the weakest link in this thread :D jk

    Re: Vollmer and Tackles of the Last 20 Years.

    Hey IcyPatriot, Why the face palm for Max Lane?
    I mean wasn't he supposed to be good because he was versatile.
    He sucked as bad at tackle as he did at guard.:p

    Re: Vollmer and Tackles of the Last 20 Years.

    Not any bash Light thread,

    maybe we can trade him to the colts for the guy they picked 32nd last year.
    peyton would love that and we have a high picked LT who is 24 .

    LG and maybe C are alright to stay, but, all other positions should be upgraded (maybe even C too).

    Light is just OK. Nothing great. Maybe a better RT.

    Kazcur is a backup.

    RG is a major weakness.

    Vollmer sounds intriguing... hopefully will be the anchor for 10+ years.

    You don't like a healthy Stephen Neal.
    I think you might be slighting a pretty decent player here.
    Agree with the rest.
