Offensive Line Dominates 2013 NFL Draft

This year’s NFL Draft, for the first time in years, is by far highlighted by offensive lineman.  Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel (above), OT Eric Fisher of Central Michigan, Oklahoma’s Luke Johnson, Alabama OG Chance Warmack, Jonathan Cooper, OG from North Carolina and OT D.J. Fluker from Alabama are all outstanding and complete players.

If this were baseball, they would be called five-tool.  All possess football IQ, great hands, excellent feet, high run/pass blocking skills and are versatile.  This NFL Draft is short on quarterbacks and average on playmakers, but deep and solid with defensive players and tremendous in terms of offensive lineman.

The NFL Draft is always a crapshoot.  But going in, on paper, offensive lineman will dominate the high picks.  Expect all of the above names to go before pick number 15.  The best of the bunch?  I will take D.J. Fluker, which may surprise many.  SEC football player (every year that is the best conference in college football), complete player, groomed under Nick Saban and is undervalued.  How can you go wrong?
