2005 Expanded Tackle Rankings

Powerful run blocking tackles are always a premium in the NFL draft and are only surpassed by the need for nimble pass-protecting, blind-side tackles. Here is an expanded rankings of the top 97 available next April


#  Name School Yr Comments
1 Alex Barron Florida State 5Sr Solid athlete with both size and growth potential.  Offers a large amount of upside for the next level yet needs time to round out his game.
2 Winston Justice USC 3So Dominant blocker recently beset with off the field problems.
3 Eric Winston Miami-Fl 3Jr Former tight end that's taken well to left tackle position.  Quite possibly would've been the first tackle selected in next April's draft were it not for a major knee injury early this season.
4 Jammal Brown Oklahoma 5Sr Big, strong lineman that can be used at several positions.
5 Michael Munoz Tennessee 5Sr Athletic and effective. Solid in all areas though not as dominant as his dad was.  Dominant as both a run blocker or pass protector.
6 Wesley Britt Alabama 5Sr Intelligent yet also tough.  Can make a major move up draft boards with good post season showings.
7 Andrew Whitworth LSU 4Jr Big, strong lineman that could eventually develop into a dominant strong side tackle prospect.
8 Jonathan Scott Texas 4Jr Possesses all the innate skills to be the next great lineman that comes out of the Texas program.  Needs to apply himself 60 minutes a game.
9 Daryn Colledge Boise State 4Jr Terrific young prospect rarely mentioned.  Outstanding pass protector that may be kicked inside to guard.
10 Adam Terry Syracuse 5Sr Not flashy but an effective blind side blocker and very efficient tackle.
11 CJ Brooks Maryland 5Sr Consistent lineman the past four seasons.  Presently used at guard yet has the size and prior experience to play left tackle.
12 Ray Willis Florida State 5Sr Very good strong side tackle with a large degree of upside potential for the next level.
13 D'Brickashaw Ferguson Virginia 3Jr Solid athlete with a good feel for the position and upside for the next level.
14 Jeremy Parquet Southern Miss 5Sr Big, powerful lineman that dominates the opposition.
15 Nick Kaczur Toledo 4Sr Strong, sturdy blocker who could be used at either tackle or guard.
16 Rob Sims Ohio State 3Jr Young prospect that's gotten better with experience and holds a good degree of upside for the next level.
17 Calvin Armstrong Washington State 5Sr Solid pass protector that is also effective blocking the run when he puts his mind to it.
18 Morgan Davis Wisconsin 5Sr Tough Badger lineman with a good feel for the position.  Not the greatest athlete but has the skills to play in NFL.
19 Travis Leffew Louisville 4Jr Athletic blind side tackle with a large upside for the next level.
20 Herbert Taylor TCU 3So Big, strong prospect that dominates the opposition.  Could develop into a top prospect down the road.

24 Anthony Alabi TCU 5Sr Underrated blocker marked down because of poor athletic testing.
