Editor’s Note: This is our Top 5 OL List for all NFL teams originally published on Patriots Insider. Check back tomorrow for our top offensive linemen for the Patriots.
As Josh Alper of NBC Dallas-Ft. Worth stated when talking about potential offensive linemen for the Cowboys to draft, “Sandra Bullock won an Oscar for a movie about how special left tackles are in the NFL and they haven’t gotten any less important in the couple of years since ‘The Blind Side’ hit theatres.”
With teams like the New England Patriots perhaps losing Matt Light this year, the Steelers and Cowboys needing to add depth, and various other teams looking to add depth, Michael Oher-wannabes will certainly be getting a lot of attention this 2011 NFL Draft season.

Tyron Smith, OT, USC
Projection: 1st Round
Last Updated: December 1st
Strengths: Incredible athleticism and agility for a lineman – Able to move to the second level and beyond with ease – Great on screens and zone blocks – Quick reaction off the snap – Run blocks with superior position and technique – Elite footwork and technique, can stay with the quickest of DE’s – In very good shape, solid motor.
Weaknesses: Needs to get stronger – Is certainly not a road-grader – Not a ton of experience – Could use his hands and arms more effectively in both run and pass blocking.
