Right Tackle

Well... what the **** do we do now?

Damion McIntosh (6'4", 328 lbs)

Start McIntosh! He's got the size for the job, he played there for the entire season and FINALLY came into his own towards the end of the season. He is, most likely, a better pass blocker than Richardson and Brown and has the weight for a road-grader unlike Taylor. No he's not the ideal situation, but he can hold the position down until the ideal situation is ready.

Sit McIntosh! McIntosh is more of a pass blocker than a run blocker. That he excelled as the season wore down doesn't explain away the fact that he gave up sacks by the handful for the majority of the season. McIntosh has done nothing but complain about the position anyways. Put him behind Albert on the LT depth chart.

Herb Taylor (6'3", 295 lbs)

Start Taylor! Taylor is the second most talented OT that we have on this roster. Period. There's a law somewhere, written by someone, and I'm pretty sure we all have to follow it, and it says that you put the five best players on the O line. Taylor has shown great footwork for a backup, and has shown the versatility at LT, RT, and RG. He's put in his time and deserves a shot on the front lines.

Sit Taylor! Taylor is not a right tackle. He doesn't have the physique, he doesn't have the strength, and he doesn't have the size. Right tackles traditionally have to be road graders, and Taylor's pass protection deserves a spot behind Albert at LT, not playing out of his specialty on the right side. There's a time and more importantly, a place for everyone on the OL.

Barry Richardson (6'6", 319 lbs)

Start Richardson! It's time we see what this guy can do. We brought him in last year as a RT prospect and it's time, during another down year, to give him his shot. His pass protection is likely dwarfed by Taylor and McIntosh, but there is no more pure right tackle on this roster. Richardson has first round measurables, from length to strength.

Sit Richardson! Richardson may be more suited on the inside, where his pass protection responsibilities will be greatly reduced, than the outside where he is clearly just going to get wasted on the edge. This guy dropped as far as he did in 2008 because his motivation was absolutely zilch. We've got a franchise QB to protect, and I'm pretty sure Barry's not up to the job.

Colin Brown (6'7", 335 lbs)

Start Brown! In all likelihood, we're going to a hybrid variant of the spread, and if we have any RT on this roster who knows the right side of the OL in the spread, it's Brown. Brown has the size to be a demon in run support, and with the two 3-4 teams in this division, arguably nobody on our roster is better equipped to deal with large DEs than Brown's size and length.

Sit Brown! Who are you kidding? This guy has the talent of a hopeless UDFA for all we know. We know he's not very fast, and makes Barry friggin' Richardson look like a speed demon. We know he has absolutely no experience blocking against the types of complex NFL pass rushes like McIntosh and Taylor. And we know he is a project anyway. Pioli believes he's a right tackle, but based on his speed, he may need to play inside.

If McIntosh could play like he did against the Dolphins on a regular basis, that would be great, but he won't, so I say we put him behind Albert. Unfortunately, the other options don't seem to be that great. I guess I would go with Richardson.

I thought that was what training camp was for. To determine the best players and to get get them to the proper position. If it's close to even, go to youth.

Herb.

Remember how he played at LT during the preseason. That was after weeks of offseason practice at that position and spending training camp at backup. He filled in marvelously.

It's not like he's Will Svitek who has never shown ANY ability at any of the positions. Of those players listed, he's demonstrated the most talent to play effective offensive line.

If we plugged Herb in at RT at the beginning and stuck with him in the offseason, I think it would pay off when the regular season showed up.

I say we give Brown every opportunity to prove himself worthy of the RT spot. Herb seems like more a finesse player. He should backup Albert at LT.

This is a position on the team I've been curious about all along.

I think there is a couple of solid vets out there and imo I think they may be worth pursuing.

It's just too much of a ? Colin Brown and Richardson are nice prospects and all, but I think it would be wise to sign a vet who can come in and play for a couple of years and teach these kids. Show em the ropes on what it takes to play RT in the NFL. Much like were doing at other positions like LBer, etc we should be doing with RT.

nice post


I think you give Taylor or Brown a first shot at the position, with Sackintosh as a fall back....

If Brown cant handle it in college? Why would he be able to in the pros? Put Taylor there, let him pass or fail. Find out what you have in the guy.

your right, because he was drafted makes him worthy of starting?Or do we just play guys that were drafted regardless of ability? Taylor and Mcsackintosh were drafted also.
