The Super Bowl champion Packers have their bookend offensive tackles.
Last year, the Packers took Bryan Bulaga and plugged him into the right tackle spot and he excelled. Now the Packers can eventually replace Chad Clifton with Mississippi State offensive tackle Derek Sherrod. He was their pick 32nd overall to close the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
Sherrod may start his career at guard, but he projects as a left tackle. Sherrod started since his freshman season at Mississippi State. He played his first year at right tackle before moving to the left side where he made his name as an athletic tackle who can handle speed rushers.
Where he needs to get better is in the power aspects of the game. He doesn't drive block especially well and can be moved around by power rushers. It would also be nice to see Sherrod play with more of a mean streak and finish off more blocks.
