    Roquan Smith declared, and so did Deon Cain - a bit of a knucklehead, but a very talented Clemson WR.

    Here is a link to their mock. Has us taking Orlando Brown.

    Thanks for posting. I think he's a RT from the jump. Can be a dominating run blocker - not sure about him vs. the pass. For his size, he's athletic and he's obviously huge, so his size can make up for some mistakes if he just gets an arm out and clubs a guy. But I don't see him as a LT. He's kinda clunky and for sure, he gets the job done in college... just could see him having some problems in the pros.

    Among those I'd like at #12 are Connor Williams (given his recent injury history, he might slip), Derwin James, Quentin Nelson, Mike McGlinchey, Roquan Smith, and Tremaine Edmunds. I really like Dedrick Ward too, but don't see them going corner at that spot.

    I was surprised to learn....Brown has never played a snap at ORT. He's got 3 years of starting experience at OLT. Some think he's too big but the Bengals love Dancing Bear types.

    Connor Williams has far better footwork. Comparable to Joe Thomas but lacks power. If his medical checks out he won't last to #12 IMO.

    Of note, NFLDraftScout and Ourlads now have OLT Martinus Rankin ranked higher than McGlinchey. Rankin has extensive experience at OC and will interest some teams at that position.

    Not surprised re Brown. He’s a beast and I’d have put him there also, as I’m guessing they didn’t have someone of comparable size and ability. He won’t win any dance competitions but his size is intriguing. Just think he’s more King Dunlap than Jonathan Ogden.

    I’ve seen Rankin play several times... big, athletic guy. Didn’t know he’d played C.

    Re Brown...Matt Miller claims a GM told him Brown was graded as a mid second rounder but would be happily over drafted due to size.

    Re Rankin...He's been the emergency center for years. Gets reps during spring ball, practice every week. They say he looks awesome at OC but OLT more important role. According to one source If judged only as a OC he would still be hghly ranked. Average body/strength Was a zero star recruit. But rare balance.

    My short list would be McGlinchey, Brown, Williams, Nelson or Smith not in any order.

    Here is the Miami game. Not sure I would say he was horrible.

    And LSU

    Doesn’t seem like a good year for left tackles, but they’re also a ***** to find in free agency... Would love to somehow find one before the draft.

    Kiper's new big board is out, but mostly paywalled - anyone able to see it?

    Don’t see it happening. Maybe a RT, but good LTs are hard enough to find at the top of the draft.
