I wanted to see him lose some weight before the combine to show his commitment. He's done that.
I would have no issue with the Cowboys taking him at 18. That would be a real nice tandem of OTs for the future.
....Mayock just backed up what you said 100% during his on field agility drill....and I must say Fluker's side to side agility wasn't bad just now: his backpedal needs work but although Mayock said he had "below avg" feet his ability to maul and engage with those arms makes it a non-issue. Plus....and correct me if I'm wrong: there is NO reason in the world he shouldn't be an option at either guard spot as well. His ability to play more than one position on the OL makes him a top 20 pick IMO
......BTW: they just showed Eric Fisher in the Senior Bowl: holy crapola did he DOMINATE. Mayock has him going to Zona at #7...and I can't really argue. Says he's a mirror image of Joeckel.
.....Speaking of Left Tackles, I'd also like to say what a colossal mistake Taylor Lewan (U of MI) made in not coming out. He was MORE than ready to go top 10 with Jockel and Fisher and has nothing to gain by staying. He didn't play poorly against S.Carolina in the bowl game.....supposedly he made a mistake on the Clowney play at the end that almost killed the running back but that was mental, not physical. I guess he didn't watch footage of Larrimore this season.
