Top 35 Right Tackles


Recommended Posts

Per bleacher report the top 35 right tackles in the NFl. AT 8 you might see a pleasnat surprise, here is the link. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2329723-br-nfl-1000-top-35-right-tackles/page/1

Number 8... RYAN SCHRAEDER

Pass-Blocking
39/50

Ryan Schraeder (6'7", 300 lbs, two seasons) was a big surprise for our staff in 2014 as he became one of the better right tackles in football. Yes, he ended the season on a low note, giving up two sacks to the Carolina Panthers' Charles Johnson, but before that he allowed just one sack the entire season (10 starts). Schraeder's length, mobility and balance are above par, and he showed both strength and agility in protecting the edge in 2014. With better hand placement, better strength and much better awareness, Schraeder went from No. 29 overall to No. 8 overall at the position.

Run-Blocking
35/45

When moving in space, Schraeder did a much better job of hitting his target. His fluid movement skills were noticeably better, and when engaging a defender at the point of attack he played with greater leverage and more strength. He still struggles giving up his ground when pressed by a powerful defensive end, but he's winning those battles more and more.

Starter
4/5

One season—or 10 starts—at the position won't lock this job up completely, but Schraeder looks like a good starter for the club in 2015.

Overall

78/100

BTW, There is another ex-Falcon at number 28, which makes this list somewhat of a joke, LOL.

GABE CARIMI

Pass-Blocking

26/50

Having already played for three teams since he was a first-round pick in 2011, Gabe Carimi (6'7", 316 lbs, four seasons) has been a liability in pass protection at every stop. Limited in agility, Carimi is prone to letting pass-rushers get outside of his frame and work their way around him. He does not have a strong punch and often gives up leverage to shorter pass-rushers, which sometimes results in his getting driven backward or knocked over. In just four starts at right tackle this past season, Carimi allowed three sacks.


Run-Blocking
34/45

A decent run-blocker, Carimi is at his best when he is working toward the interior of the line. He does not exhibit the power to drive a defender backward when his man is straight in front of him, but he is strong enough to move a defender out of a running lane when he has an angle on his opponent. He lacks an explosive burst off the line of scrimmage and sometimes struggles to find defenders in space. But he has enough foot skills to make downfield lead blocks when he quickly identifies a target and has a clean path in front of him.


Starter
3/5

Traded by the Chicago Bears in 2013, just two years after they selected him with the No. 29 overall pick, Carimi is a draft bust who is not close to being a starting-caliber NFL offensive tackle. Despite starting seven games between four different positions (four at right tackle, one each at left tackle, left guard and right guard) for the Atlanta Falcons last season, the 26-year-old is unlikely to garner significant interest on the free-agent market this offseason.


Overall

63/100

Good thing you didn't post the LT article. It wasn't pretty for us

Jake Matthews is the first name on the list, coming in at 35.

Hes been graded bad on many sites not just PFF and bleacher report, but a lot of people on here won't accept it. Granted he wasn't 100% but dude was bad

I'd bet BR based their ranking of Jake off PFF. PFF's line rankings are usually pretty solid. IDK I thought he did a solid job. Only game I thought he got killed was the second half of the Giants game vs JPP.

All of our OL will grade out much better after this year simply because we are going to go back to the run first game which makes any OL grade much better because it takes the pressure off the QB. Helping the stats look much better for the OL. And I might add, makes the team much better as well. Thank goodness we have a new Coach who believes in running first ... That's what got us to a Super bowl the first and only time.. One good running back with a decent QB and a few WRs. We were never going to do anything with our old system. I hated it when we left the 4-3 D. and knew it was a mistake to do so.
