Daryn Colledge OT 6’5 298 Boise St.
By: Robert Davis
With Boise’s recent success, they have started to get more media attention. Now that people are paying attention to them, they see that the left tackle for the Broncos is as good as they come in college football. After redshirting as a freshman, Colledge moved into the starting lineup in 2002 at left tackle, and there has not been anyone else to start at that spot since then. He has started all 52 games during his career.
Daryn Colledge is one of the best left tackle prospects for this draft. He has excellent athleticism and can mirror rushers’ moves and keep them off his quarterback. He’s also plays with a lot of strength on the field, and can dominate at the point of attack. He’s the complete package as a tackle prospect. Colledge has also displayed excellent durability in college, starting every game he has played in.
Even though he plays with power, Colledge could stand to gain a few pounds. The bulk will help him better handle the wear and tear of a full season in the NFL. Of lesser concern is that he hasn’t faced many ends with the size to give him fits as a physical presence, and he’ll need to show the ability to handle guys his size.
This year’s offensive tackle pool is ridiculously deep. Outside of D'Brickashaw Ferguson, there is a very talented second tier of offensive lineman, and they could go in any order. Colledge falls into that group. He could hear his name called near the end of the first round, but shouldn't last long into the second if he does.
