2011 NFL Draft Preview: Offensive Line

Posted Apr 4, 2011

Take a closer look at some of the top prospects on the offensive line as the 2011 NFL Draft approaches.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the weeks leading up to the 2011 NFL Draft, DenverBroncos.com is taking a look at the draft prospects position-by-position.

We will devote a week to each group, looking back at some of the Broncos' previous picks at the position and showcasing some of the top prospects through top stories, blogs and Broncos TV videos.

Next up in the nine-part series: offensive linemen.

Below you will find six of the top prospects at the position. Later in the week, we will profile another player to keep an eye on -- Baylor tackle Danny Watkins.

TOP PROSPECTS AT THE POSITION:

CLINT BOLING
• POSITION: Tackle
• COLLEGE: Georgia
• HEIGHT: 6'5"
• WEIGHT: 308
On what positions he played in college:
"I started at right guard, right tackle and left tackle. I think it helped a lot because NFL teams, they’re dressing 7 or 8 guys (on the offensive line), so you have to be able to play multiple positions."
Player
GABE CARIMI
Player • POSITION: Tackle
• COLLEGE: Wisconsin
• HEIGHT: 6'7"
• WEIGHT: 314
On his credentials:
"(There are) four potential first-round players I've gone against this year. I have a better resume of going against better talent than anyone else, so that makes me more (pro) ready. I'm physically stronger and have more career starts and better knowledge of the game than any other tackle out there. That's why I'm the No. 1 tackle out there."
ANTHONY CASTONZO
• POSITION: Tackle
• COLLEGE: Boston College
• HEIGHT: 6'7"
• WEIGHT: 311
On the importance of intelligence on the offensive line:
"You've got to be able to understand not just what you're doing on a play but kind of how the play works out as a scheme, because defenses aren't stationary. They're constantly moving around, so you've got to know how you're going to react and how they're going to react. It's almost like a chess game. Just trying to stay one step ahead."
Player
MIKE POUNCEY
Player • POSITION: Center
• COLLEGE: Florida
• HEIGHT: 6'5"
• WEIGHT: 303
On putting a bad first game his senior season behind him:
"It was determination, not letting my family down. My family is the biggest thing in my life. After that game I felt like I let everybody in that stadium down. I couldn’t sleep. I woke up the next morning, I was the first one in that building and from then on I got it fixed."
TYRON SMITH
• POSITION: Tackle
• COLLEGE: USC
• HEIGHT: 6'5"
• WEIGHT: 307
On getting his weight up:
"Basically, I started eating right. I stopped eating junk food. I ate right three meals a day -- breakfast, lunch and dinner and little snacks in between. I surprised myself when I weighed 307."
Player
NATE SOLDER
Player • POSITION: Tackle
• COLLEGE: Colorado
• HEIGHT: 6'8"
• WEIGHT: 319
On his gameday personality:
"I'm just such a competitive guy in everything that I do, there's not one guy I don't want to do everything better than him, at every single level. That plays out in a lot of ways, you know, if I've got to smash him into the ground to shut up his mouth, then that's the way I'll do it."
