On draft day, there’s nothing that a team can do that will disappoint its fan base more than draft an offensive lineman. Deep down, the fans know that he will certainly help, but they’re much less sexy of a pick than a quarterback throwing the ball seventy yards, a running back that can run a sub 4.4 forty, or 6’5 wide receiver with a 40 inch vertical.

One player who won’t be appreciated for as much of an impact he can make will be Rutgers’ left tackle Anthony Davis. The local product out of Piscataway, NJ will be forgoing his senior season at The Birthplace of College Football for what will most likely be a successful career.

The 20-year-old looks to be the total package. At 6’6, 330 pounds, he is the mountain you want protecting your quarterback’s blind side. He has also displayed versatility at Rutgers, playing right guard, right tackle, and ultimately left tackle. He would be a much-welcomed addition to many NFL offenses.

Anthony Davis could go as early as: #4 to the Redskins. St. Louis, Detroit, and Tampa Bay all have too many issues on the defensive side of the ball, and the looming talents that come with the top 3 picks are too much to pass up. Also, Washington has inexperience at the tackle position down that Chris Samuels appears over the hill.

Anthony Davis could go as late as: #15 to the Giants. I am a strong believer that the Giants need to rebuild their terrible defense, but if Davis shows up to the NFL Combine overweight and out-of-shape, he could fall. The Giants simply wouldn’t be able to pass up this opportunity. The Rutgers product could do wonders.

Anthony Davis will probably go to: #8 Oakland or #9 Buffalo. Oakland has drafted the best-of-the-best offensive skill players in the past drafts, but their talents won’t produce any benefits unless they field an offensive line. Also, Buffalo had a huge surprise today as their starting tackle Brad Butler retired at the age of 26, so what was already a whole for the Bills after trading Pro-Bowler Jason Peters last year has become a devastating loss.Rutgers University will be extremely proud when Anthony Davis’ name is called on NFL draft day.
