    I agree Monroe has first round potential but it depends widely on the need of the teams and if that need superseeds a Left Tackle. I feel there are 4 other Left Tackle prospects besides Monroe so it would be hard to fit him in over others. Who knows though. I been doing more research and will watch more games this year so we shall see how that goes.

    I have Monroe in my Top 5 (I'm still working on my mock)

    I don't have him above Oher though. I have the Bears as the first pick in mine.

    Everybody knew Monroe was good...There is a reason why Branden Albert wasn't starting at LT. But putting him ahead of Oher is just completely asinine. I agree with you that Oher is a once in a decade player...Monroe is not. He isn't even better than Andre Smith who I believe has the upside to possibly unseat Oher as the top LT and the possible #1 pick. Monroe could defintely become a top 15 pick though.
    You keep using my favorite football term.

    Well not to long ago Walter had him rated as a 5th round draft pick and I've never seen him in anyone else's first round.

    Stronger than D'Brick but not quite as gifted with the feet.
    Stronger than Brick? I didn't notice that but I did notice poor footwork and the tendency to walk the fine line between holding and not holding a lot (though if he doesn't get caught I suppose it's not too bad). I have a couple concerns with him before he gets better than a round 2 grade from me. Definitely a promising prospect though.

    I don't know about top 5 Matt. What makes you so high on him? And that's coming from a UVA fan.
