Here is what Ourlads recently offered on perhaps the 3 top offensive tackles available... The analysis came after watching the players at the Senior Bowl-- both in practice and in the game itself: D'Brickashaw Ferguson (Virginia)- As good as advertised. Excellent feet in pass protection. Good redirect. Long arms (36 1/4") natural knee bender. Smooth and athletic in his movement. Leaks through on the second level. Sinks his hips. Can turn and seal linebacker and cut off backside pursuit. One of the most fluid natural athletes we've observed in numerous Senior Bowls. Carries his weight well. Needs to fill out and upgrade his overall strength. Competitive blocker with god body control. Has all the tools to be a Pro Bowl player. Needs to post up inside leg better to take away inside slant by defensive end. Eric Winston (Miami)- Angular left tackle that is more finesse than powerful. Comes off the ball with a flat back. Sustains contact with defender. Not real strong with his anchor. Has some talent and tools. Not an explosive and powerful as you like for a tackle. Marcus McNeill (Auburn)- A left tackle with natural strength. Explosive. Can generate power. Will duck his head on pass protection and waist bend at times. Needs pass protection technique work. Raw talent. Jonathan Scott (Texas)- Athletic tackle that needs to play strong. Not a powerful player. Good initial quickness and balance. An inconsistent player in both pass protection and run blocking. Players too high to anchor bull rush. Average long snap at 14 yards was between .70 and .79. Ryan O'Callaghan (California)- Big physical right tackle type. Good sized hands and arms (33 3/4"). Good balance. Could improve his footwork in pass protection. Not a natural knee bender. Average athletic ability. Can mirror a speed rusher. Jeremy Trueblood (Boston College)- Typical Boston College lineman. Physical and plays with an attitude. Angular build (6077, 316) with long arms (34") and big hands (10 3/8"). Plays high and allows the defensive end to get into him. Struggles to anchor. Inconsistent to move his feet against a speed rusher. Other than Ferguson I don't see any instant answers at RT. As a matter of fact I think if one stuck Winston and McNeil at RT for the 2006 season I think each is capable of giving up 10+ sacks as a starter. I still think a year #2 Pettiti is a better option than either McNeil or Winston.
