Position Outlook- Offensive Tackle

With it being Redskin Week again, I will not be posting my WWGD post this week. Not because the Redskins suck or anything, but because I already did a post on them and I really don't want to repeat the post. IF you missed that Week simply Click here to read up on the Redskins, and How I think Garrett should Attack them.

So last week I started a new Series called Position Outlook, where I will be profiling each position and the Players that Dallas has for that position. I will be giving MY opinion on the relative strength of the position, and How likely I think Dallas will be drafting that position in the 2012 NFL Draft. I will include All current players+ practice squad in this evaluation

5 Stars- Minimum Amount of Quality Starters at Position and At least one quality Backup for Position= BPA only if player is ranked significantly higher than any other player, and would not be a factor in FA

4 Stars- Minimum amount of Quality Starters at position, Unproven Depth = Address as BPA and FA for Depth

3 Stars- Minimum of one Quality player at starter, but unproven Depth=slight need, BPA in rounds 4-7 preferably, look to fill need in FA

2 Stars-Serviceable Starter(s), No Depth = solid need, BPA if within rounds 1-3 if not taken care of in Free Agency

1 Star- No Quality players at starter nor in depth= major need, Draft no later than 2nd round, would take precedence over BPA if Gap is close enough, and is a must target in Free Agency

The series so far:


QB position 3 stars

So who are the Dallas OT's? Via NFL .com:

Jermey Parnell

Tackle

I put this here because Parnell didn't do any timed drills at the Proday, so I figured I should let you guys see what Parnell did at his proday. I am not good with the "eye-ball test" so if any of you guys what to let me know what you think Feel free to chime in. BTW I think Parnell is the one in the White Shirt.....

So what is the out look for OT? I give the position 4 Stars- Minimum amount of Quality Starters at position, Unproven Depth = Address as BPA and FA for Depth. Free and Tyron are both young players, and are under contract for the next few years, however Parnell is very much unproven. Look for Dallas to shore up the Depth here in the later rounds and Possibly FA with a Derrick Dockery type deal

As Always I welcome any Comment or Critiques to you guys may have. If any one wishes to give their opinion on Parnell's workout or has a better video I will gladly edit my post and give you full credit for the Edit...
