Strengths: Versatile big man expected to be able to fill any interior line position (LG, RG, C). Potential to play tackle, but that might not be his natural fit in the NFL, even though at 6’6, 330 pounds, he has the size and reach (34") to play tackle in the NFL. He seems to be the consensus top overall rated interior lineman in the draft, and the ability to move to tackle if necessary has to be a huge strength when looking at how important that position can be in the NFL.

Weaknesses: Are there any with this guy? In my opinion his biggest weakness is the level of competition he faced in college. Let’s be honest, Idaho isn’t the best of football schools, and the WAC isn’t a BCS conference. Does he look more outstanding because he faced inferior competition in college?

Why the Eagles will draft him: Living in Northeast PA I talk a lot of football with the Eagles fans in the area, and they all tell me the team’s biggest needs are Safety and Guard. With the big 3 safeties (Berry, Clark, Mays) off the board and the loss of Shawn Andrews last year, the Eagles can use a versatile lineman to open up some holes for Shady and help protect Kolb in his first year as a starter.

Thanks to robloosli for making the pick for the Eagles. Skii is now on the clock with the Ravens pick while the Cardinals pick is on deck. Since the Cardinals pick won't take long, manderson367and Dallas' pick need to be ready by tomorrow(Saturday). Please send your picks to revengeofthebirds@gmail.com.
