    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


    Must return from injury
    Roman Oben
    Jon Jansen
    Marvel Smith

    Good but not great
    Leonard Davis
    George Foster
    Kevin Shaeffer
    Jon Runyan
    Robert gAllery

    On the rise
    Alex Barron
    Khalif Barnes
    D'Brickashaw Ferguson

    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
