Nate Solder has garnered comparisons this draft class to our own second-team All Pro Sebastian Vollmer. That's due to their similarly insane size and athleticism. So looking at their measurables via nfldraftscout, who would you rather start at LT? Vollmer Solder Height 6075 6082 Weight 312 319 40 5.12 4.96 10splt 1.77 1.72 Bench 32 21 Vert 36.5 32 Broad 9'03 9'02 20yd 4.5 4.34 3cone 7.51 7.44 I can't find any official measurement for Vollmer's arm length, but word is they're about 33 compared to Solder's 35+. So what do we have? Vollmer is certainly the stronger and more explosive player. 36.5 Vert for a guy his size is unthinkable and would be the best among all OL at the combine over the past 5 years. His bench and broad, needless to say, are very impressive as well. Solder, however, seems to have a bit more quickness to his game, as well as more length (some have said too much length). Experience being equal (which it isn't), Solder's quickness would seem to lend itself better to the left, while Vollmer's insane power should give him the advantage on the right. One thing is obvious, though: Light isn't half the specimen these guys are. Considering OL we draft high always get put to use quickly, I think it's time to part ways. Bittersweet, but it's time. I say let Vollmer play on the Left for now, and then groom solder on the Right Side. Both can benefit from the TEs. Once Solder has some experience, switch it up. Or don't. Either way, we should have the best pair of Tackles in the league sooner rather than later. I also suspect this sort of aggressive dedication to the line suggests Mankins may not be as lost a cause as we all assumed.
