Default OL that fit Gibbs style after round 1

There is a really good chance 4 to 5 OL will be gone by the time #18 comes around so I wanted to start a list of players that fit what Gibbs is looking for. This is just my opinion based on what I have read about Gibbs and the type of player he likes.



OL we could be interested in.

Gosder Cherilus, OT Boston College
One of the high risers after a good off-season, he's a 6-7, 315-pound athlete who destroys defenders when he gets the chance. He'll bust his tail to get better and will be coachable. The concern will be how well he handles a No. 1 pass rusher if he plays on the left side. More than fine if he spends his career on the right, there are concerns that the Virginia Tech games might have shown the real player he is.
CFN Projection: First Round

LZ,
Any thoughts on Gosder Cherilus from Boston College?
He's a little stiff, but he's physical and played better as a RT than LT at Boston College. Supposedly the Texans have snooped around about him but it surprises me because I'm not sure he can be an effective pass protector at LT and Winston is more of a RT.

Kirk Barton, OT Ohio State
A weight-room warrior who's a cut 6-4 and 300 pounds, he was a four-year starter for the Buckeyes and got a lot of attention and plenty of all-star honors. While he was a key cog in the OSU offense for his entire career, and the line was his for his final two years, he didn't improve by leaps and bounds over the course of his career. He's not smooth enough to handle an average NFL end. He'll get by for a while in camp on reputation.
CFN Projection: Sixth Round

Geoff Schwartz, OT Oregon
It's all there except the athleticism. He's not not going to beat most speed rushers and he could eventually make his money at guard, but he'll battle hard and will beat people up in the running game. Really tough, really strong, and really good for long stretches, he'll be a great cog in the system for ten years, but he'll never be a Pro Bowl caliber performer.
CFN Projection: Early Second Day


Duane Brown, OT/OG Virginia Tech
The former tight end beefed up to well over 300 pounds without losing much of his athleticism. However, he's not a pure pass protector and had big problems with the better defensive ends. He had a nice off-season and was good on the workout circuit, and he has great upside, but he needs the time and the work to develop. He could be a guard now, or a starting tackle in a few years.
CFN Projection: Fifth Round

Mike Gibson, OT/OG California
A former JUCO transfer who stepped in and did a nice job as a two-yard starter for the Bears. A great run blocker who'll power over anyone who isn't going 100 miles per hour, he might project to be a guard if he can't prove he can handle an NFL caliber pass rusher. He'll need a while to improve his overall technique if he's going to be a tackle.
CFN Projection: Fifth Round

Breno Giacomini, OT Louisville
The former tight end is a tall (6-7) athletic 305 pounds, but he's not going to pound anyone on a consistent basks and is still learning the ins and outs of playing tackle. He was only a regular starter for a year and is still developing. Even though he's not a finished product by any stretch he has the upside to grow into a possible pass protector.
CFN Projection: Seventh Round

Will Robinson, OT/OG San Diego State
While he works hard and has nice quickness, he's just not that big. Pushing to hit 300 pounds, and still not making it, he's undersized for a guard, which he could be from time to time if he sticks on a team, and he's not quite talented enough to be a regular NFL tackle. He's a project who will do what's needed to try to hang around.
CFN Projection: Sitch Round

Chad Rinehart, OT/OG Northern Iowa
While he'll try to be an NFL tackle, he's a guard. A strong 320 pounds who can crush and kill for a running game, he's just not a good enough athlete to be a regular on the outside. He's definitely not a left tackle, could be a right tackle with some work, and will likely find a spot as a versatile backup who'll work where needed.
CFN Projection: Sixth Round To Seventh Round

Demetrius Bell, OT Northwestern State
Karl Malone's son (yes, that Karl Malone) delivers (sorry about that) well for the passing game with good quickness in a 6-5, 300-pound frame. He's not a physical enough blocker to plug in right away and will need to be in a zone-blocking scheme to have any chance of getting on the field in the next few years. He needs to get bigger and stronger, but he doesn't have the room to do it.

Texans could probably use another one of those too. I always liked Oneil Cousins to the texans with their third rounder. A little lighter than Brown, but way more athletic (I thought).

I think that Williams could be a Texan, but there is also a good possibility that he gets picked up way beforehand (Like last year when I was hoping Adrian Peterson would fall to us).

The title of the thread is OL, not OTs.

He can play OT/OG/OC. He is a hard worker who is a prototypical Gibbs type.
