    Brandon Albert Should be on the list, I'm pretty sure they plan for him to play LT. I thought Otah was going to play RT and Gross would stay at left? Maybe not.

    Either way I picked Jake Long because he won't be Orlando Pace, and that's what's expected if you're picked #1.

      Albert's official draft position was at guard so he'll be on the guards list.

        He would be second on my biggest OT busts. Think he'll be a great guard though.

          Jake Long has the highest expectations (based on draft position), and popular opinion (amongst the amateur critics) thinks he's going to be/wants him to be a failure as a left tackle, but he has great size, strength and a nasty disposition and with an OL minded HC like Sparano he'll develop nicely and become a very solid pro LT IMO.

          My vote's for Cherilus. He was a reach in the first place, and to make matters worse he was chosen by the draft-error prone Detroit Lions who have other holes to fill and despite a good resume and pedigree I think he'll struggle. I think he'll be a starting NFL RT down the line, but he'll be the biggest bust of the top 5 OT's taken.

            I think it'll be Otah. Otah was a prospective pick. A guy who we knew was raw but due to his size and strength, was a first round prospect. If the project doesn't work, Otah is a bust. I think that's likely.

                What? Where did I say Long was gonna bust? I was saying that Long has the loftiest expectations and that I think he's widely considered to be the most likely to bust as a Left Tackle, but I think he'll prove his doubters wrong. It was a preemptive strike at the likely Long votes that are to come.

                  Preemptive strikes haven't turned out so well as of late

                        Otah. Horrible fit in the ZBS.

                            In defense to Otah, I believe news came out on draft day that with the pick of Otah they are switching into a more conventional power scheme, but it was speculation.

                            I say Otah as the most likely to bust but I don't think any of them will.

                            And Gosder Cherilus is a stud. He'll be the #1 RT in the NFL when it is about 6 years down the road.

                              Yeah, I'm pretty sure if you look at Carolina's projected offensive line, it's power.

                              I voted for Jake Long since he lacks the athleticism.
