Gosder Cherilus OT 67 319 Boston College

By: Robert Davis

After redshirting in 2003, Cherilus moved into the starting lineup as a freshman. He started 37 straight games on the right side until he moved over to left tackle this season.

Cherilus is the ideal right tackle prospect. He has excellent size and plays as big as he is. He is very strong and shows the ability to drive people off the football and clear out running room. He is a decent athlete that shows the ability to slide in a short area to keep the defender from getting to the quarterback. Cherilus has been very steady and durable during his career, and should be ready to play immediately in the NFL.

Cherilus may be confined to the right side, as he lacks the standout athleticism to protect a quarterbacks blindside. It is not a major problem as a right tackle, it just may limit his overall upside.

Cherilus is a very good right tackle prospect. His upside may be limited which will likely keep him out of the top half of the first round, but there are plenty of teams looking for a quality right tackle. Cherilus should be a very solid offensive tackle at the next level.
