You're using the Draft Network simulator, I'd guess? I've done so many.
One consistent I run into is that if we want a LT we have to get it in Round 1.
Occasionally D.Radunz or A.Leatherwood is there in Round 2, but for the most 
part, my simulations have shown that to be the case. I like T.Jenkins. He might
be a RT though, more than a LT, but we'll see.

Leatherwood is a RT in the NFL and i totally agree with the LT call.  There are about 6 legitimate LTs in the draft that could start in the 1st year and they could easily be gone by 24

and Jenkins is a Rt in the NFL.  He played LT as a freshman but moved to the right side as he grew bigger.  i do not think he has the movement skills to be a LT.

You would pick Dunz in the first? 

As i have it:

  1. Rashawn Slater
  2. Penei Sewell
  3. Christian Darrisaw
  4. Jalen Mayfield
  5. Dillon Radunz
  6. Liam Eichenberg

 

That is 6 players that can play LT and perhaps start the season there.  After that you may have Samuel Cosmi but he is a RT that could play LT.  There are other developmental OTs in the draft but do you want to wait 2-3 years for them to develop?  If any of those 6 are on the board at 24 I would sprint to the podium.

Slater over Sewell? Yikes.

Daniel Jeremiah, Lance Zierlein and Matt Miller all have him above Sewell.  We will see in the draft but they are 1a and 1b

 

Athlete(Sewell) vs technician(Slater) Only one of them has tape vs Chase Young and eliminated him in a game(hint, it is not Sewell).

The downside is Slater is at his physical peek.  Sewell is still young and can grow but if you NEED a LT to start right now it is Slater.

Yea I really disagree with them.  One year at LT, short arms, and only faced 1 NFL quality rusher.

I kinda like the way I hear one guy put it:

Slater has keep you out the club power

Sewell has throw you out the club power

Sewell might need more technique work, but man if he gets it Slater can't do the things Sewell can.

I think R.Slater is an All Pro OG. That his best position is inside.
Don't get me wrong, good T, but a star inside. Same with the USC kid.

I think he’d end up in that good RT/great OG area that people assume is a bust because of how high he was drafted.
