NFL Draft 2012: Who's The No. 2 Offensive Tackle?

New, comments

I didn't intend for this to turn into draft day around here but whatever. We talked about the latest 2012 NFL mock draftat SI.com which, like ESPN's Mel Kiper, has the Kansas City Chiefs selecting DT Devon Still. As I said in that post, I'm leaning towards an offensive lineman in this draft.

You have Matt Kalil out of USC, who should be one of the top few picks in the draft, as the No. 1 offensive tackle right now. Things can change as we hit the Combine, team workouts and all that but he's considered the top guy at this point and he likely won't be available when the Chiefs pick at 11 or 12.

So who's the second best offensive tackle?

A lot of people say it's Riley Reiff, who comes from a program (Iowa) that's not bad at churning out offensive linemen. Then there's Jonathan Martin out of Stanford.

And then there's Mike Adams. He's kind of all over the place in mock drafts -- as low as the late first round in some and as high as the top 12 in others. Sporting News' Russ Lande says a number of NFL scouts think Adams is a better prospect than Reiff.

It's still early in the process but what are you thinking about the second best offensive tackle in this draft? Reiff, Martin or Adams? That might be someone the Chiefs are keeping an eye on.
