This should be interesting to the tackle conversation. Pats seem to value the run blocking OTs more than other teams. maybe its because Brady gets rid of the ball faster than almost every other QB so the line doesn't need to hold blocks as long.

Some of this is ridiculous (Mecole Hardiman stinks), but the comments about Bobby Evans are interesting.

Evans started at left tackle on the best offensive line in the country and got some love from Bill Belichick during a film session documented by Boston Globe scribe Jim McBride. As Belichick said, Evans is a brick wall with excellent core strength to anchor against bull rushers. He’s the definition of a people mover, with immense grip strength and power to finish blocks with nastiness as a run blocker. He also has a good feel for his landmarks, and with a pocket passer like Brady, can set back forcing defenders to run through him, which isn’t easy. Evans has some of the same concerns that Isaiah Wynn had coming out as an undersized tackle prospect, but he started games at both tackle spots and will start somewhere along the offensive line in the NFL even if that means a move inside to guard.

A lot of those tackles are RT which is fine if we need a swing replacement for LaAdrian or replacement for Cannon

But Little plays LT and if he’s elite, it helps moar

McGary can be a LT but he seems light

Its probably best to get someone with swing experience, and set a competition up for the LT spot in camp between Wynn and whoever we draft. Wynn should be able to handle it and I'd think he'd have the inside track, but a good competition would be nice.

Well Wynn could be your swing guy

If we had Trent, I think Thuney and Wynn would have had an epic battle

Wynn will be our best OL guy besides Mason by the end of the year.
