2013 NFL Draft Rankings: Offensive Tackles
When you’re a team like the Kansas City Chiefs or Philadelphia Eagles, this 2013 NFL Draft class of offensive tackles really is intriguing.
Every team wants a Joe Thomas protecting their quarterback, and Luke Joeckel may be the next best thing.
Joeckle and Eric Fisher are outstanding tackles that could easily both go in the top five of April’s draft.
1.Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M
All around top talent. Stand up character and sound franchise tackle for years to come.
2. Eric Fisher, Central Michigan
Exceptional size and body control allows him to show off his ability in pass protection. Another franchise tackle.
3. Lane Johnson, Oklahoma
Absolute freak athlete of a tackle that can do it all. Can play both tackle spots.
4. D.J. Fluker, Alabama
Likely a better fit on the right side with his ability to run block. Long arms still help him as a pass protector.
5. Justin Pugh, Syracuse
Plays with quick feet and high intensity. Not the biggest body, but a potential zone blocker at the next level.
6. Menelik Watson, Florida State
Underrated newcomer to the top ten. He continues to impress in film with his ability to use his arms to bury defenders.
7. Dallas Thomas, Tennessee
Solid pass protector and excellent run blocker. Inconsistent at times and may need time to develop.
8. David Quessenberry, San Jose State
May be a better fit for guard at the next level, but versatility keeps his options open. Technically sound blocker.
9. Kyle Long, Oregon
Long frame and arms combined with his quick feet make him a solid riser. Versatile as well.
10. Brennan Williams, North Carolina
Above average kick slide and very solid run blocker. Best fit likely on the right side of the line.
