I only see tackle as an option early if Andre is not retained.

Fluker is a mammoth. 6'6 340lbs, but he's not quick enough to play T in my opinion. Could be a pro-bowl guard though.

Didn't play it very well here. Only did it in a pinch. I promise you he'll never be a G here again. Not even built right to be a G.

I thought he was better at guard than tackle. Never really been a fan of his though. He's built wierd in general and I watch him get pushed around an aweful lot.

Either way, Whit never played OG in college. He stepped in at LG due to need early in his career with Cincy. He's not a great fit at OG.
