Top Five Offensive Tackles
By: Mark Solway
Category: Washington Redskins News
Name: Joe Thomas
Weight: 311 pounds
Thomas is a bona fide stud. Great technique, great leverage, great quickness, great everything. He'll protect the blind side of some lucky franchise's quarterback for the next decade. A guaranteed top five pick, a justifiable top three pick.
Name: Levi Brown
School: Penn State
Weight: 323 pounds
Great technique, good hands, good leverage, good power. Needs to work on a mean streak to excel at the next level, but has all the tools. Should hear his name in the first half of the first round.
Name: Joe Staley
School: Central Michigan
Weight: 306 pounds
Tremendous athlete with great up-side. He moved over from tight end as a sophomore and still needs a little bit of grooming, but he will surely continue to learn, grow, and get better. Mid-to-late first rounder.
Name: Tony Ugoh
Weight: 301 pounds
Great technique, great movement, and good leverage. Ugoh is a champion shot putter, so he has great strength but he needs to learn to use it more effectively in the NFL. Late first rounder.
Name: Ryan Harris
School: Notre Dame
Weight: 305 pounds
Good technique, good punch, and great quickness. He lacks a little size, but was a four year starter at a major program. He could actually move inside to guard at the next level. Should be drafted some time on the first day, but not in the first round.
