who do you want to start @ left tackle ??

we all know buffalo has a glaring weakness in the oline and from the rumors going around trading for a left tackle was in the plans all along do you agree with trading for a tackle or staying put

 

 


Demetrius Bell   6-5 307 Gets off the ball well and flashes the ability to get into position quickly. Shows good lateral mobility, can each defender lined up over outside shoulder and can seal the edge. Gets adequate hand placement, moves feet and can sustain blocks. Takes adequate not great angles to downfield blocks, can adjust to moving targets in space and can get into position at the second level. Shuffles feet well and can redirect in pass protection. Has the frame to add bulk, has steadily progressed and should only get better with added experience.

 

Jammal Brown 6-6 317 Brown has been New Orleans' starting left tackle since being drafted in the first round of the 2005 draft. He is a good-sized tackle with excellent balance, body control and athleticism. He does a good job of keeping his pad level down and blocking with leverage. He can kick step out to pick up the speed rusher off the edge and still react and adjust to react to counter moves. He could do a better job of finishing his drive blocks off as he tends to let opponents recover and work their way back into the play. While Brown might not be an elite left tackle he certainly provides a quality starter that can hold down the left side.

 

Jared Gaither  6-9 340 Gaither is a young, ascending player and the Ravens' starting left tackle. He has tremendous size, particularly with his extreme height and overall length, to man the blind side. However, there are times when his high center of gravity is used against Gaither. Gaither remains a work in progress but is a punishing finisher in Baltimore's power blocking scheme. As he gains experience, his hand placement and understanding of his opponent will improve.
