Another nice pickup to revamp the line or at least give us some much needed quality depth.

I don't know anything about these linemen that we took but I like the direction. O-line and some depth at insider back.

Best value pick of the draft so far. Really good value, really solid player...could potentially become a starter

Re: Tom Compton pick 6.23
 
Notes:
Prepped in Minnesota and missed two games as a senior because of right knee scope. Redshirted in 2007. Started all 21 games at right tackle in 2008 and 09 before moving to left tackle and starting all 11 games in 10. Made all 11 starts at OLT spot in 11 and earned first-team All-America honors. Two-time team captain.

Positives:
Has an NFL body. Very good size squarely built and well-proportioned with a thick trunk. Can squat a small house. Strong to hold the point. Good hand placement. Plays with discipline. Can lean on defenders or angle block and open running lanes. Occasionally lined up at fullback, indicating he can pull adequately. Outstanding shuttle times at the Combine. Feisty, aggressive playing temperament. Durable four-year starter. Intelligent. Nose-to-the-grindstone type competitive, motivated and hardworking.

Negatives:
Unpolished footwork does not exhibit an NFL-caliber kick slide and has to bail out quickly to widen the edge. Limited hip snap. Average balance and body control. Bends at the waist, spends too much time grappling and falls off blocks. Limited recovery quickness slow to shift his weight. Cut-blocking needs work.

Summary:
Heavy-bodied, waist-bending college left tackle whose core strength, agility in space and blue-collar mentality should enable him to transition inside in the pros, where he has eventual starter potential. Could help outside in a pinch and pique the most interest of teams employing zone-blocking schemes such as the Ravens, Texans and Packers.

1st team All-American and we got him in the 6th round?? Sure, I'll take it.

And I mean, hey, he squats a small house.

Four year starter and a very big boy.
Me likey!

Maybe the steal of the sixth round. We need a RT bad enough where his path to the starting lineup could be pretty clear.

I read his squat is 700 lbs, wow

Strong and athletic. Seems like the FO is adjusting a bit and realized that the goal line punch-ins don't work if you totally undervalue strength in linemen too much.

This is definitely a steal in the 6th round. His credentials and history should have had this guy picked much earlier.

Looks to be a heck of a pick in rd 6 ! Between Compton , W. Smith and F/A Lee , we should end up with some nice depth and hopefully future starter/s .

TC could turnout to be a BIG time steal strong, FB smart, & long arms.

Re: Tom Compton pick 6.23
 
Reading the reports it wouldn't surprise me if Compton not only started at RT but did a pretty good job. Hopefully he never has to play LT.

I expect them to keep 8 or 9 OL on the roster, though after last year I'm guessing they'll go with 9. Hopefully all 3 rookies make the team.
