I've seen other Iowa games and he was having a tough time. I'm not saying he's a scrub, but he's not a 1st round talent imo, especially where he's projected to go.

Lol... it's like we're watching different tape. He sustains almost every block. I have never seen that as a problem with him on tape or read a scout point it out as a flaw. But oh well. Agree to disagree.

The only real problem I hear is arm length, like you said. I don't think it will stop him from being a really good right tackle but who knows.

ALMOST every block, but you got to take this in consideration, it's only a one game highlight. There is some consistency there, but like I said, i've seen him get beat by some swim/spin moves by defenders. I don't think he gets bullrushed much, but he can get tricked off the line.

I just don't think he should be going where he's supposedly going. But i'm going to change my vote actually. Tannehill really have no business in the 1st at all.

So because he doesn't dominate every single block he's not first round worthy? Gosh... if that's the case then no offensive linemen should be taken in the first round ever. Do the teams know about this? I feel like that's something they should know about.

Love your condescending humor!

No really though, the offensive tackle class is not so great this year so yeah, i'd say so.

It's my specialty!

I would agree that Reiff isn't the top 5 pick that people have made him out to be at various times this offseason. But he's still a top 16 guy in my estimation and would be a terrific selection at 18. Though I would definitely put DeCastro ahead of him.

Heck... I would take DeCastro over Kalil.

So you would trade down to get him? I would too. But about Riley, don't get me wrong. He's good. There is a reason why he's going that high. It's because he helps a lot in the passing game, but his run D abilities are suspect. His wing span is also going to cause problems for faster, stronger defensive players.

If it wasn't for the shabby OT class and the need for OTs, he'd be going in the 2nd round. They got him projected at top 10.

If Miami takes Tannehill he's easily be the biggest bust of the year.
