Summary: I really like Black as an offensive line prospect and should make some team very happy in the second round. Teams need linemen who can play three or more positions, and Black can be a very good starter at guard or right tackle. He lacks the athleticism to play left tackle in the NFL, but he should find a nice home somewhere.
Player Comparison: Vernon Carey. Carey lacked the athleticism to play left tackle, but has been a dominant run-blocker for the Dolphins at right tackle, and also gives versatility as a guard.
@R3belo That's kinda what I'm hoping for. The Falcons are a Super Bowl team - trading up to get a specific player is more than acceptable at this point. We can get back there - especially if the Cowboys let their owner sabotage themselves.
