  • Top 5 LT prospects of the 2000's

    where would you guys rank the top left tackles entering the draft dating from this current draft thru the past decade. Let's not be biased by their NFL production, but simply as a prospect.

    i believe a few names to throw around are Gallery, Chris Samuels, Joe Thomas, Jake Long, Mike Williams, McKinnie, Leonard Davis, Ferguson, Gross

    i honestly don;t think that this class has even a top 10 guy in this category.

    rankings?
    thought?

        yeah, Gallery was supposed to be AWESOME!

        Now he's an average guard on a bad team....

          It would have to come down to:
          Chris Samuels, Leonard Davis, Robert Gallery, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Joe Thomas, and Jake Long. I'm not entirely certain on how Samuels and Davis' stocks were at the time. Of the other guys I'd say Gallery was the best, followed by Thomas, then Long, then Ferguson.

            Thomas
            Gallery
            Ferguson
            Long
            Samuels


            BONUS: Andre Smith before the complete nosedive after which he still got drafted 6th.

              From when I've followed the draft (2004+) there's really just three to me that stick out ahead of the pack..

              1. Robert Gallery
              2. D'Brickashaw Ferguson
              3. Joe Thomas

              4. Jake Long

              Not sure about #5. Maybe Andre Smith. He was a beast before the combine and everything else brought him down some.

                so, from what i'm seeing, Okung (assuming he's the current #1) is no where near this list.

                i think he's a solid prospect, but by no means in the same league as these guys.

                  As a Panther's fan I am biased and he isn't top 5 but Jordan Gross should be top 10.

                    Okung is not top 10 this decade, probably not even top 15.

                      Right. Just using last year as an example.. I like Okung more than Jason Smith, but I'd take Andre Smith or Eugene Monroe before him.

                        I really thought Gallery was going to step on the field from day one and be one of the better LT's, I still can't believe how he turned out. (I was sold)

                          as a Raiders fan, yeah, I was sold on Gallery too.
                          I think the fact that he wasn't just put in at LT day 1 hurt his development and he never caught up. His first few years he was really bounced around.

                          he is, in fact, a pretty good LG for us right now. But considering what his promise was...holy cow, not in the same galaxy.

                            I agree. i never quite bought in to Jason Smith and I thought Andre was the bees knees.
