While most people will say there isn’t a franchise tackle in this class, I think that is an oversimplification as there looks to be some very good talent in this group. I think any of the first 3 guys can be stars at the position. The rest of the top 15 should produce a number of quality starters, including some LT’s. Beyond them there are a number of raw prospects with solid upside, whom at the very least should be capable backups. Is there a Walter Jones or Jake Long in this group? No, but I think there is still a good bit of talent here.
