Nate Solder,Gabe Carimi,Anthony Costonzo,Tyron Smith,Derek Sherrod

Nate Solder is a long torso, linear tackle with long arms and good feet. Can
sit down and play with good knee bend in pass protection. Derek Sherrod
plays left tackle in a spread offense. A good athlete who plays on his feet.
Locks out with his long arms and controls edge rusher. Junior Tyron Smith
plays right tackle but has left tackle feet. A long armed athlete who plays
with a good base. Shadows a defensive end effortlessly in pass protection.
Works to finish his blocks. Anthony Castonzo is a right tackle only. Smart,
tough, and physical. Can get push on down blocks. Loses his feet in traffic.
Gabe Carimi struggles at times with balance and edge speed. Plays
with heavy feet. Will overextend and go to the ground. A right tackle only.
Castonzo and Carimi will both get a chance to play left tackle.
