    NFL Draft Q&A: Arizona OT Eben Britton

    [size=13pt]Eben Britton[/size]

    By Ed Thompson
    Scout.com Senior NFL Analyst
    Posted Apr 16, 2009

    He's from Brooklyn ... and from California. He's a warrior on the football field and a writer and a poet off the field. Oh, and he's also speculated to be the Vikings' first-round pick on April 25. Meet one of the top offensive tackles in this year's NFL Draft, Arizona's Eben Britton, in this exclusive Scout.com interview.

    Heard him interviewed on Sirius, I like this guy a lot.

    Re: NFL Draft Q&A: Arizona OT Eben Britton

    Listened to the same interview.
    He has actually been on there alot.
    With the number of teams that have looked at him, especially the ones above us, and his ability to play both T positions I am betting he is long gone before 22.

    I just saw a 7 round mock done by some yutz that has him going.....

    16 Chargers Eben Britton, OT

    The Sporting News draft preview predicts the Vikings will take Arizona offensive tackle Eben Britton with the 22nd pick in the first round of the April 25 draft. Local draft expert Shawn Zobel also has the Vikings going with Britton in his latest mock draft, which was posted on Monday.

    I still would like us to go after Tauscher soon.
    The man is still out there, come on.
    Not only does it help us, but it hurts the Pack.

    He would be a nice selection, he would have to get through a laundry list of teams that have had him in for work outs especially the Chargers.
    Rumor control has them torn between Beatty and Eben.

    Was listening to "Movin the Chains" yesterday (I'm sure you were too), and they made a great point about how safe it is to pick a top-notch OT. Even if he's a "bust" at LT (like Gallery), he can move to RT or G, and still be productive. Whereas if a QB/WR is a bust, he'll be gone in 3 years.

    I was.
    And that point is becoming more and more prevalant (IMHO) with the top picks.
    Won't be long and you won't see many "Skilled" positions taken at all in the top 15 picks or so.

    How boring will drafts like that be?
    ;D

    IMO that will make them more entertaining. I usually get bored after the first. This would change that.

    Good point. Get all the boring picks out of the way and then start mining for nuggets.
