Default Re: Don Banks CNNSI Mock draft 3.0

IMO, Oher was overhyped because of the book..."The Blind Side" and his feature in it. The kid is extremely nible on his feet and isnt gonna give up a ton of sacks, but he has never been the best run blocker. My first mock in feb I had him going to Chicago at #18 and I think he still goes near there or in the 20's.

Oher sometimes has lapses in his play and isnt powerful in run blocking as he overextends himself. Still, the kid just WOW's me with his footwork and I think he can be coached up to be a great all around OT. Monroe and Jason Smith are just more polished than him and Andre Smith is a better overall blocker.

That is my $0.02. If Detroit takes an OT at #1, I would try and trade Larry Foote and draft picks to move up to #20 and get him in a second.
