McShay on OT Lewan

Posted by Chris Brown on February 20, 2014 – 10:01 am

The Michigan Wolverines struggled to a 7-6 season. One of the big problems was the offensive line, but those problems went guard to guard. Their two starting tackles, which included left tackle Taylor Lewan, were the stalwarts up front. That’s why Lewan could be a top 10 pick. We addressed how long the Bills can afford to wait before addressing the offensive tackle position with some youth on Buffalobills.com today, but Lewan would be a heck of an addition.

ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay sees an experienced blind side protector with the tools to succeed in the league, and in his estimation doesn’t expect him to be on the board long.

“In Lewan I see a very good player. I don’t think he’s an elite athlete, but I think he’s got good quickness. I think he’s physical. I think he knows the angles. You watch him in that Ohio State game getting to the second level on the screens. He’s got enough mobility combined with his size and arm length, 6’7” 314, the experience he brings. These guys don’t last long in the draft.”
