NFL Draft Prospects 
Posted on February 9, 2013 at 04:29 PM.
I'm planning on releasing a list of my top draft prospects and their grades.

1. Left Tackle "Luke Joeckel"

Joeckel is a physically dominant player. He is gifted with fantastic lower and upper body strength. He can not only stop opposing pass rushers in their tracks, but he is able to drive them back and create passing and running lanes. His hip technique is beautiful. He seals and turns defenders better than any tackle that I've seen in the past decade. His hand/arm technique is also fantastic. His strength in his upper body matched with his proper use of arm extension drives defenders back and propels Joeckel's momentum. He is the best pass protector in the draft. His ability to contend with some of the best pass rushers in the nation through his tenacious physicality is what separates him from the other tackles in this class. The only concern that I have for Joeckel is his lateral agility and acceleration. He has drastically improved this area of his game since week 1, but I still think that he might have some early struggles against the elite speed rushers of the league. As I said though, he has already put in the work to improve this part of his game, so I don't see it being that much of a problem as his career progresses.

Overall 95 A

If I'm the Chiefs, I think I'm grabbing my LT for the next 10 years here...
