NFL | Not a lot of O-line help in 2012 NFL Draft?

Southern California OT Matt Kalil is expected to fly off the board in the 2012 NFL Draft rather quickly in the first round, but there are plenty of questions at the position after that. Over the past five years, an average of 6.4 offensive linemen have gone in the first round.

However, the question is whether guys like Stanford OT Jonathan Martin or Iowa OT Riley Reiff are closer to the top of bottom of the first round. "I don't think there's a second or third tackle where you say, 'I gotta have this guy in the first round,'" an AFC personnel director said. "Martin might be comparable to someone you see in the second round, and there are differing opinions on the guards, particularly (Stanford OG David DeCastro). The kid from Midwestern State (OG Amini Silatolu) is more talented, but are you comfortable with a JUCO guy who wound up there? There are lots of questions like that."
