An Offensive Tackle For Every Round

Reid Fragel in the third round? If the Lions want him, that’s where they need to pick him.

Continuing in the series after we have already covered pass rushers and cornerbacks, today we give you an offensive tackle for the Lions at every pick. The Lions certainly should have interest in tackling their tackle issue with the retirement of Jeff Backus and the free agent departure of Gosder Cherilus. Last year’s first rounder, Riley Reiff, will start at one of the vacant spots. Oft-injured Jason Fox and underrated Corey Hilliard will be in the mix at the other spot. The team clearly likes both of them, which makes the drafting of an offensive tackle likely to fall into one of two categories: instant top notch starter or long-term developmental project.

I got a chance to sit down and have a nice early dinner with a scout for an AFC team following the University of Houston’s Pro Day on Monday. We talked about DJ Hayden, some Texas A&M and Louisiana Tech prospects, pass rushers, and more over some excellent Tex-Mex at The Original Ninfa’s, the birthplace of the fajita.

Will Damontre Moore become a Lion?

This is underclassmen declaration season, which means some players listed here are not necessarily going to be in the draft come April. Lots of potential management and coaching changes make predicting even tougher. Please note this are approximately the slots where I think players will be taken and it does not necessarily reflect where I believe players should be drafted.

1. Kansas City Chiefs
Luke Joeckel, T, Texas A&M. In years where there is no quarterback that screams “take me!” at the top, teams typically do one of two things. Some go for the top defensive talent (Mario Williams, Courtney Brown), while others go for the best offensive line player (Jake Long, Orlando Pace). Without knowing who will be the GM or the coach, the safer pick is the top offensive tackle. That is Joeckel, should he declare. Of course some teams have opted to take a QB anyways (Jamarcus Russell, Sam Bradford), and the Chiefs could very well go down that road as well with Geno Smith or Tyler Wilson.
