Thread: LT Prospects

  1. LT Prospects



    The two guys I've been looking at are Brennan Williams, UNC (6'6, 318, 34 inch arms) and David Quessenberry, SJSU (6'5 302, 34 3/8 inch arms).

    Probably in the range to grab with our 4th round comp picks.

    Thoughts?

    Quessenberry, Faulk, and Marquadt all intrigue me as 4th Rd or lower developmental LT's, but i cant pound the table on any of them.

    If we can get Mckinnie re-signed im thinking maybe we wait a year on LT. If Mckinnie were to go down then i think Oher would be the guy they placed at LT before a rookie anyway. Also it would allow us to fortify some other areas and then in the next drive we could go after a LT with less pressing needs. Not saying this should absolutely be the way to go but im looking at how many guys i think without a shadow of doubt could play LT and it's pretty scarce.

    Mckinnie is becoming necessary. If they can get him for cheap (I think this is becoming more likely becuase outside of Miami he's not getting any interest) then I think it's a must. The guy to put behind him IMO is Faulk. I think he has the most upside out of later round picks, however he could go late 3rd early 4th, whereas Quessenberry and Marquardt could range from 4th-5th.

    Braden Brown, OT/G, BYU would be a solid late round 5th thru 7th target...

    Re: LT Prospects

    Quessenberry is interesting.

    Brennan Williams reminds me a lot of Jah Reid. Not sure he's a LT in the NFL.

    I think Chris Faulk and Luke Marquardt are better options later in the draft.

    If anyone's interested here's a long, detailed write up on Menelik Watson. It's not a talent evaluation, just sort of his history up to this point. I found it interesting.

    #Syracuse OT Justin Pugh told me that so far he has had 1-on-1 workouts with the #Ravens #Titans #Patriots #Jaguars & #Eagles
    OG or OT?
    With how good his feet are, I'd say OT, but man, those tiny arms....

    Or maybe we're evaluating to see where others may take him.

    Well, as I mentioned in the 7 round mock post I put up earlier today, I would NOT be surprised if the Ravens drafted a guy they feel can play guard or tackle. There's been a good bit of smoke going around that the Ravens (particularly Juan Castillo) may see Kelechi Osemele as the LT of the future, and if Oher remains at RT (probably his best fit) the hole on the OL is going to be at LG, not LT.

    I certainly don't know if I love the idea... but I went back and re-watched some tape of KO, and I do think he has LT potential in the right system. I think his foot quickness is juuuust good enough... maybe... and he certainly has the length and strength with his 36" arms. It's going to be Oher-esque watching him struggle to defend the corner against the fastest edge rushers, but I think there's a decent chance he could do it.

    For that reason, I mocked the Ravens to draft Alvin Bailey in the 4th to compete for the LG job. Justin Pugh would also be a good candidate there. It's going to be key that if they do move Osemele outside, they stay strong at LG and do everything they can not to lose the strong interior wall we had in the playoffs.

    This is why I like Barrett Jones. He can play anywhere (maybe not LT), but he gives so many combinations. If we cannot draft a capable LT then I want Jones in the 2nd and I would give something up to move up for him

    Prob guard thinking KO or Oher competing at LT.

    Pugh would be good depth regardless.
