Packers 2017 Draft: Red and Black Dot players on Offense
By Dan Dahlke
Our “Red Dot” Offensive Linemen
Kyle — Taylor Moton, Western Michigan
I think that Taylor Moton is a very underrated prospect in this class of offensive linemen. His athletic testing is incredible and he fits the bill for what Green Bay seeks in an offensive lineman. He’s very versatile. While he can play offensive tackle in a pinch, I think he could be a dominant guard for the next 10 years.
Dan — Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky
Lamp will be a day one starter as a guard in the NFL. He may have the most polished game of any offensive lineman in this draft class. His footwork is fantastic, and his lateral quickness allows him to stay step for step with even the most explosive pass rushers. He also has a strong punch off the line and shows a lot of tenacity in the trenches as a run blocker.
Our “Black Dot” Offensive Linemen
Kyle — Cam Robinson, Alabama
Robinson has all the talent in the world to be a good NFL offensive tackle, but he hasn’t put it all together yet. Some people think a slide to guard could benefit him. While it is possible, I think his issues are consistency, attention to detail, and committing to being a technician. I don’t think a position change fixes those things. And I think his floor is pretty low if you leave him at tackle. I’ll pass.
Dan — Zach Banner, USC
Banner is an awkward athlete, measuring in the 97th percentile for offensive tackles at 6-foot-7 and 353 pounds, but testing in the sixth percentile athletically. He plays with poor bend and sluggish footwork. He can get out-leveraged by power rushers or exposed on the edge by speed. His game needs a lot of work before he sees the field in the NFL.
