    I love this pick. A technically sound tackle who has the size. Great value in the 7th imo.

    ESPN.com says that he'll likely move to guard. I'm ok with this pick since the OL is getting old.

    aaawwwwwwww :(

    I didn't think we'd take an OT with 4 on the roster. You'd think between Loper and Wand, one could be the swing OT they want. But maybe this guy has too much potential.

    Nfl.com says he should bulk up and has the frame to. Maybe he can play some OG at some point and add more versatility.

    Draft expert Sigmund Bloom had Otto going going high 4th, R Smith high 5th and Ford late 5th so it looks like we got great value with our last 3 picks

    Kindof funny that a 308 pounder has to be told to bulk up.:))

    Depth at T and G. Probably practice squad this season.

    Yeah he adds good depth with Olsen getting old. Can fill in at T obviously since he played there in college but projects as a G in the NFL.
