    This is great bestlakersfan, thanks. It gives us an idea of what to expect from each player. I think if the glaring weakness - offensive line - had been addressed, it would have been a pretty good class. A few of them sound like certain contributors while many of them have the potential.

    I was wondering about Jason Rodriguez earlier. You seem to be among those who projects him as a guard. I'm wondering why this is, since tackles are harder to find and while huge, Jason is also agile and not just a bulldozer - he has been a successful basketball player. He wouldn't be the first really big tackle to play for the Trojans. Please elaborate; I'm curious. Thanks again for an awesome write-up!

    I just don't think that he will be a tackle. It doesn't mean that he can't become one or play at a decent level as a (right) tackle in college. He may be an average tackle in a very optimistic projection, but he has the potential to be a damn good guard. I think he just projects much better in that role. Also, I'm not sure he has the ideal frame, athleticism or arm length to be a tackle. Hopefully that answers your question!
