1. Walter Jones
Completely untouchable in every facet
2. Orlando Pace
Big but agile, can play RT and LT, there's nothing he can't do
3. Jonathan Ogden
Starting to slow down but he's still incredible
4. Bryan McKinnie
He held out but has long been forgiven by his outstanding play
5. Matt Light
Blocking for Brady so well earns you respect
6. Kareem McKenzie
A crucial part of the Jets, and now Giants, success
7. tie Flozell Adams/Tra Thomas
Has to come back from injury but are solid
8. Levi Jones
No one thought much about picking him up, now you can't get around him
9. Jordan Gross
Natural Right tackle but did well at left as well
10. Chris Samuels
Gets injured from time to time but he remains a crucial component of the offense
11. Michael Roos
Very raw but is still rock solid at both spots
12. Jamaal Brown
This year's move will be a big test
13. Willie Roaf
Has been solid but being abused by Burress and Merriman constantly get you knocked down
14. Shane Olivea
Has gotten better but questions about if he should move to guard remain
15. Matt Lepsis
He's a pure zone blocking tackle and does his job well

When Shane Olivea is listed as a better tackle than Roman Oben - someone fell asleep at the wheel. :yes:
:icon_sleep: :whistling:

Olivea has upside and there's real questions as to whether Oben will even be able to play this year
Sims I'm not impressed with as of late.
D'Brick's on the rise because I think he is :tup:

I would say the same thing about Oben if these dudes above were given the lattitude to come back from injury.

I think even Oben would admit Adams and Thomas are better then he is and have meant more to their teams success. I frankly think they're better so I gave them more of a benefit of a doubt
