2005 Tackle Rankings

 
#  Name School Yr Comments
1 Alex Barron Florida State 5Sr Athletic blocker with solid skills on the blind side. Must improve almost every aspect of his game as well as his intensity yet possesses outstanding upside for the next level.
2 Jammal Brown Oklahoma 5Sr Tough, strong side blocker that dominates the opposition. Effective in all aspects yet must develop a nasty attitude.
3 Wesley Britt Alabama 5Sr Consistent blocker who uses all his assets to a maximum. Not outstanding but always get the job done.
4 David Stewart Mississippi St 5Sr Well sized tackle coming off a tremendous senior campaign. Dominant right side blocker who can quickly move into a starting lineup at the next level.
5 Adam Terry Syracuse 5Sr Technically sound blocker with outstanding intangibles. More athletic than he looks and offers a good upside.
6 Nick Kaczur Toledo 4Sr Powerful blocker built for the strong side. Also being given consideration at guard yet best at tackle where he has room to operate.
7 Ray Willis Florida State 5Sr King sized blocker better in a small area. Solid starting potential on the right side.
8 Rob Petitti Pittsburgh 5Sr Collegiate left tackle with an excellent head for the position. Destroys defenders when focused yet too often gets by on natural talent, doing more leaning then actual blocking.
9 Calvin Armstrong Washington St 5Sr Solid pass protecting tackle who must become a more physical and improve his run blocking skills.
10 Anthony Alabi TCU 5Sr Underrated tackle that consistently protects the quarterbacks blindside. Not flashy, may not test well yet a consistent force.
11 Jeremy Parquet Southern Miss 5Sr Big, strong lineman with the ability to be used at tackle or guard. Possesses a large outside yet must turn up the intensity and play hard for 60 minutes.
12 Michael Munoz Tennessee 5Sr Strong blocker best in confined quarters. Durability issues the past four years loom large.
13 Jonathan Colon Florida 4Sr Solid position blocker and a good athlete that can be effective on either side of the line of scrimmage. Offers a good upside but needs repetition.
14 Morgan Davis Wisconsin 5Sr Smart, run blocking right tackle best in a small area. Efficient in pass protection and has skills for the next level.
15 Michael Roos Eastern Wash 5Sr Athletic prospect just scratching the surface of his abilities. Quick footed, technically sound and outstanding in pass protection. Must improve his strength and overall blocking skills yet offers excellent upside for the next level.
