    He looked terrible in the drills. He's got plenty of strength and toughness but his foot speed and overall quickness is extremely bad. He's more of a throwback type of mauling RT, if you plug him in as the day 1 starter your QB had better get good protection everywhere else. Until he drops some weight and gets coached up to be quicker rushers are going to be coming past Fluker all day and all night.

    I personally would never spend a 1st round pick on a RT only who can't handle speed on the edge. Wait, that sounds vaguely familiar...

    Didn't watch the drills personally. Doesn't really surprise me, but DJ Fluker is a guard at the next level, he can become an all pro there IMO. And you should take a guard or a RT in the first round if you know he's going to improve your Oline. Not everyone can be superstars at LT.
