I like Ford,  but as I've done more review, he's not a better RT prospect than several guys that would be available. 

If were looking for an RT and are deadset on one at #14 then Risner is the best choice. As a Tackle prospect he's worlds better than Ford in run blocking and pass protection.

I like Risner as well. Wouldn’t mind a trade back and picking him up. Then pairing him with a Max Scharping. I think Scharping would transition better as a RG.

What he lacks in experience he makes up for i raw ability IMO. You cannot teach nastiness and on film BIG men are running away from him instead of focusing on the ball carrier/coverage for fear of him getting his hands ion them. I want that tone-setting toughness on the right side of our line where we have not had it for years.

The thing about raw ability is that it is usually enough at the college level, but it more often than not quickly gets exposed in the NFL. He won't have the massive size and strength advantage he did in college in the pros. He'll be going against world class athletes that pair amazing ability with sound technique. Just being able to out muscle the guy in front of you only works but so often.

I get his upside, but if we're looking for a guy to come in from Day 1 and lock down the RT position, Risner is certainly better.

I can dig it but I still disagree. He's held his own against the best in this year's draft. Watch his tape against Alabama. Watch Risner's tape against Miss State. Both could be exposed at the next level, both could excel. I prefer Ford due to his ability, size and nastiness. If we took Risner I would not be unhappy, just prefer Ford.

The key is the surrounding talent. Ford had hands down the best O-Line in college football.

and Ford was contributing factor. Like I said, Risner is a good player, just prefer Ford for the reasons given.
