Dallas Cowboys Potential Draft Pick: Nate Solder, OT, Colorado Jonathan Bales http://dallascowboystimes.com/2011/01/dallas-cowboys-potential-draft-pick-nate-solder-ot-colorado/ Unfortunately for Dallas, there are no elite offensive tackle prospects in this year’s draft. Theoretically, we might not see an offensive tackle selected in the first 20 picks. Now tackles tend to rise before the draft and there are a bunch of players at the position projected to go late in the first round. Still, the Cowboys should be able to trade down and still secure one of the best offensive tackles in the draft. The question will be whether that player can play right tackle and if using a selection on such a player is worth the cost. Scouting Report At 6’9”, 315 pounds, Nate Solder is absolutely mammoth. At such a height, Solder actually has room to put on some solid weight. The typical scouting report on Solder says he struggles as a run blocker but can secure the edge in pass protection. I disagree with that assessment. As I’ve watched Solder, I’ve noticed a player who is athletic enough to get to the second level in the run game. Take a look at him at the 1:45 mark in the video below.
