The more I see on the kid the more I like him. I think he would be a needed addition to our OL. Can someone give me the low down on him. Confused

I'm not sure he can play OT in the NFL. Not a guy I want in the first round. Maybe in the third round if we think he can be a good OG.

I think he can be a good RT in the NFL. But we have more needs than OT, I think that Austin Howard is a good enough starter for now and is young.

Fluker was the one weak link of a very good Alabama offensive line and his stock has dropped off. Wouldn't take him till round 4 at the earliest.

I think he'll go in the top 40-50 so I don t really want him. If he's available in the 4th we have to consider taking him, I guess

Not a good fit for the ZBS.

Weak link? Don't think so. He was one of the top run blockers in all of college football; graded out nearly perfect his last two seasons.

This season he was 2nd team All American and first team All SEC. He's a huge reason why Alabama could run on anyone.

Fine if you don't like him as a 1st or 2nd round pick, but he was absolutely not a weak link.

Fluker is pretty impressive in my opinion. Does well in pass protection for his size because he knows the proper technique to compensate, and is an extremely good run blocker.

Don't know if he fits ZBS but I've been in love with him for the past 2 years.

With big question marks about Moore I thought we should be considering adding some depth to the right side. Howard can be moved inside if needed. You guys are right. He's definitely not worth a 9th pick but if he was there at 39th I think we should pick him up. He's rated the 4th best OT in this years draft at #23 overall. The next closest OT is Armstead at #52 overall but he plays the left side. Joeckel and Fisher play the left side. I would really like Lane Johnston but I can't see him falling to #9. If he does I would grab him with the first pick. No questions asked! IMO

Lane Johnson is someone that I just don't see the hype about. I like Fluker over him.
