Adopt-a-Bronco:
Clady
Default Sportingnews.com is retarded!

It's a new era at offensive tackle. As the longtime dominators --Walter Jones and Orlando Pace -- begin the inevitable slide because of age and injury, the young guys are stepping up and standing out. Ryan Clady, new Eagle Jason Peters, Joe Thomas and Michael Roos are blind-side protectors you'll be hearing much about the next few years. Although the young transformation is at hand, our old-school thinking won't allow us to put rookies in the top 20. They have to show us something first.

#1Ryan Clady, Broncos. An extremely athletic left tackle who gave up just 1 1/2 sacks as a rookie last year, he has great feet and the ability to run block at the second level and mirror ends in pass protection.

2. Walter Jones, Seahawks. He's still a premier player who doesn't need help against any pass rusher. Age and injury will put him on the descent in the next few years, but he's still a top technician for now.

3. Jason Peters, Eagles. Peters got some bad advice on his contract issues last year in Buffalo. As a result, he missed a lot of practice time and it showed in his play. Now that he has a long-term deal in Philly, all that is behind him and he can focus on returning to the form that made him one of the top young linemen in the league.

WTF are they thinking?

Branden Albert is easily a top 20 tackle. Probably top 10-15, too.

they got Clady right at least. Jones hasn't been a premier tackle for a couple seasons now, Peters is hugely overrated.

Pace, and Samuels are too high considering age and injury.

and where the hell is the our other Ryan? last season he established himself as one of the best RT in the game. as good as Clady was on the left, Harris was just about as good on the right.

outside of getting number 1 correct, i think this list is bull****

The Sporting News is a joke and has been for years. I don't even read their stuff any more. Too bad - years ago they were decent journalists.
