Scouting Report:

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1665265/david-bakhtiari wrote:
STRENGTHS: Physically looks the part of an NFL offensive lineman. Has long arms and good overall weight distribution. Has a thick lower half and good core flexibility, well suited to anchoring against bull rushers. Good initial quickness. Consistently is the first Colorado offensive lineman off the snap and shows the ability to jump off the ball, turn and seal off defenders in the running game. Gains good depth on his drop and eats up ground with a deep kick-step. Long arms and strong hands allow him to latch on to defenders as they attempt to cross his face when he is in pass protection. Good understanding of angles to cut off defenders who appear to have him beat. Good upper body strength and good hand placement to latch on and control his opponent. Shows some nastiness to his game, looking to knock defenders to the ground when he can. May not possess elite straight-line speed but shows enough burst to get to the second level and is highly competitive once he gets there, seeking out someone to hit. Good bloodlines. Eric Bakhtiari, David's only brother, was a standout defensive lineman at San Diego State and has been on an off the San Francisco 49ers' roster.

WEAKNESSES: May lack the elite combination of height and foot speed to handle edge rushers in the NFL, though he appears well suited to simply sliding inside to left guard. Doesn't have top body control for blocking on the move and will struggle adjusting to moving targets. Too often attacks the outside shoulder of linebackers when blocking on the move, allowing them to "swim" over him and remain in the action. Would like to see him finish his blocks more completely. Often protected with a tight end as Colorado frequently used a dual tight end set...

Compares to: John Greco, OL, Cleveland Browns -- Like Bakhtiari, Greco was a standout left tackle in college (Toledo) but one whose lack of ideal size and foot speed pushed him inside in the NFL. While not a standout, he's emerged as a solid starter and one whose physicality and determination won't be questioned once given an opportunity.

Clearly unaware that White got the largest contract for a defensive player in NFL history.

People were shouting for David Q, give me Bakhtiari over him any day. Was the one OL I was hoping we'd pick up. A 3rd round grade for me.

Thoughts-

They must think the footspeed isn't an issue a tackle.

Probably the only OL that's drafted today for the Packers... unless a potential Center candidate tumbles... very, very far.

He looks good on the tape. No penalties. Nice

Derek Sherrod: Officially written off.

From NFL.com's draft profile:

an attacker rather than passive blocker.


I like it.

Says a lot about Sherrod. I think protecting Arod can't be gamble so I like it

Like this pick, think he's going to see some snaps at Center during camp. I think we had him in mind as an interior swingman on gameday.

My gut says he'll be a swing depth guy at T, and Barclay will move in to give us that guy at G.

Does this guy project inside, or does he stay at OT?

I don't think this means there is or isn't anything wrong with Sherrod, TT is going to take lineman on both sides of the ball in these mid to late rounds. Seems like someone who will get a look as a swing guy. I like the pick.
