Albert is gonna blast alotta bulldozer sized holes before he's done, no doubt. But he's simply not a prototype LT.

In fact, among the top OTs, only Clady, Chris Williams and Sam Baker are true prototype LTs. The word outta Dolphins mini-camps last week is they're thinking even Jake "#1" Long is not a prototype LT. He's a strapping beast, no doubt about it, but probably not a LT. In fact, there were a lotta RTs this draft, many of whom will be pounded like square pegs into the LT spot until such time as their teams realize it's not gonna work.

Jake Long
Jeff Otah (closer)
Gosder Cherilus
Branden Albert
Carl Nicks

These guys might PLAY left tackle, but they're not Joe Thomas/Ryan Clady prototype LTs
