Default Elite tackle prospects

among these top 4 tackle prospects which one would you choose as Texans GM? where do they go in order and why?

Jonathan Scott
Offensive Tackle
6-7 · 310 · Sr

Big, athletic fifth-year offensive lineman who is one of the nation's best tackles and a fourth-year starter … combines the athletic ability to be an effective pass blocker with the size and strength to be an overpowering run blocker … has tremendous footwork and combines that with an 82-inch wingspan (6-10)

D'Brickashaw Ferguson
Offensive Tackle

ironic this just posted on GBN - http://www.gbnreport.com/playerstowatch.html

July 5: OT Jake Long, 6-7, 338, Michigan, JR... Its no big secret that the strength of the 2006 draft will be the OTs. ESPN's Len Pasquarelli, for example, has a nice preview of the position in last week's Tip Sheet. Included in the elite level OTs for the upcoming draft are D'Brickshaw Ferguson of Virginia, 6-9 Marcus McNeill of Auburn, Eric Winston of Miami, Andrew Whitworth of LSU, and Jon Scott of Texas among others. And the OT position could get even deeper with the addition of several qualty juniors such as Winston Justice of USC, Levi Brown of Penn State and Justin Blaylock of Texas. The biggest and best of the underclassmen who could impact the 2006 draft is Michigan junior Jake Long, a massive 6-7, 338-pound RT prospect who has the pure physical potential to work his way into the very top of the OT rankings for the upcoming draft. Long is a dominating drive blocker who simply engulfs opposing DEs; and while not necessarily the most agile OT out there, Long has long arms and decent feet that allow him to lock onto even the quickest outside pass rushers.

1. Eric Winston - He has the quickness and tenacity to be an elite LT for years...He plays with a mean streak that I have never seen in our OL before, and that is an infectious trait...

2. D'Brickashaw Ferguson - He is a great pass blocker who needs to prove he can keep weight on...He and Winston are neck and neck IMO, but D'Brick doesn't seem to play with the fire that Winston does...

3. Jon Scott - He's probably going to be the UT homers' pick, but he's not on the same level as Winston or Ferguson (he can prove me wrong with a good senior season)...He is a good well-rounded blocker who has good, not great, feet...I'll probably have to warm up to the idea of getting him since he'll likely be the only good LT available when we pick...

4. Marcus McNeill - He is going to be an elite RT, but he's just that--a right tackle...After the contract we gave Wade, I can't see us taking a right tackle in the draft...

right now i would say the order would be:

D'Brickashaw Ferguson- as of right now is the best overall prospect...he does need to add some weight so that stronger DE's will not push him around

Eric Winston- needs to prove he is over the knee injury of last year...needs to have a strong senior year in order to be a top 10 pick

Jon Scott- right now i'd say he's the most NFL ready tackle on the board...honestly he has the size and the athletic ability to be a franchise LT...i'm not a UT fan so you can't say i'm saying because of that

Marcus McNeil- i do not believe he has been written off as a pure RT yet...i think he can still play LT in the NFL...Tra Thomas of the phili eagles is just about the same size...plus mcneil can flat out play

Andrew Whitworth- i think this is the most underrated OT in this years draft...this kid has the size...has the ability to play LT just needs to prove he has the strength

out of these guys who do i see the texans picking up...jonathan scott from UT...why because hopefully we won't be picking high enough to grab ferguson or winston because i hope both players have strong senior years...and scott will be the best pure tackle on the board

1) D'Brickashaw Ferguson - the most atheletic tackle in this draft class and if he has another big season, he might move in the the Bosselli, Ogden, Pace class.
2) Jonathan Scott - is the most complete of the "Big 4," and has been getting the job done at Texas for years.
3) Eric Winston - could be number two on my list if he can be the same player he was before the acl injury, the best pass blocker in the draft.
4) Marcus McNeill - the enigma of the class, he must prove this year that he can play LT and has the foot work to do so. The best run blocker of the "Big 4."
If I was the GM of the Texans I would pick Ferguson. People say he has a weight problem, but a good nutritionist could find a way to keep weight on him in a healthly way. He also has the athletic ability to deal with Freeney which the other 4 don't.

I would not be surprised if we used our 2007 1st rounder to move up in the 2006 draft and net one of the top OT's.

Depending on how well Wand plays, that may not be a bad idea if he is stinking it up, but I doubt that will be the case. I suspect he will play somewhat better in his second year than Pitts did in his second year, which would be a nice improvement. That will probably not be as good as we would like, but it would show that he can play. What you then have is a muddy water situation where it isn't clear that we need to make a major move. If that happens, I doubt this club spends two first rounders to get an LT (could have done so for Pace if they wanted to) who is a rookie that MAY or MAY not workout. Of course if he stinks it up.....then all bets are off and we WILL do something. The question is what. Rookie or vet? Not sure who would be available that would be a top vet.

All I know for sure Beerlover, is with this many prospects in the pool, the Texan's brain trust, whomever they, are have no excuse for "missing " in '06. I'm going to enjoy watching these guys preform next season. I wonder if OLT class of '06 will be like the QB class of '84 ?

Didn't Casserley move up to select Chris Samuels when he was with the redskins?

"Then, in a surprising move the Colts selected running back Edgerrin James from Miami over Heisman trophy winner Ricky Williams. As a result Ditka got his man, as the Saints moved up to the fifth spot and drafted Ricky Williams. The Saints gave the Redskins all their 1999 draft picks and their first and second round draft picks in 2000 to get Ricky Williams."

The Redskins earned their #2 spot in 2000. But Also had the #3 overall pick from the Saints trade in 1999.

Awesome Move.

In 1999 they moved down a few spots and got Champ Bailey. Then in 2000 got Lavar, and Samuels.
