Episode Description

Today Ida Muorie will be visited with two offensive tackles,former Oakland Raider and future Hall of Famer, Henry Lawrence and Max Starks of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Offensive Tackle is the one that protect the blind side of the quarterback and they need to see down field. In a draft they also are required to show intelligence that matches the Quarterback as a utility player. The careers of an Offensive Tackle can last 10 to 15 years, when the average career in the NFL is four to five years. We will also talked about the top ten in the draft and give our prediction for the 2008 -2009 Rookie of the Year.
