Alabama OT DJ Fluker At Senior Bowl Weigh-Ins

“Just draft anyone from that Alabama offensive line. Draft the whole offensive line if you can! We need people to protect Philip Rivers.” People have been saying that during the whole college football season and there is plenty reason to say that.

Alabama OG Chance Warmack will get consideration with our 11th pick and Alabama OL Barrett Jones could get consideration with our second round pick, if he even slides that far.

Another Alabama lineman is making noise during Senior Bowl weigh ins today. Alabama OT DJ Fluker measured in at 6’4 7/8 and 355 pounds. His arms measured in at 36 3/8 inches. We know how much arm length can make you rise and fall in the draft. Fluker has some big boy arms.

Fluker played right tackle for the Crimson Tide and has declared for the 2013 NFL draft. He is eligible to play in the Senior Bowl because he graduated early while being on campus for four seasons.

He did come in 20 pounds over his listed weight and an inch shorter. We will keep our eyes on him during the Senior Bowl practices and through the combine.

    Warmack with 11th pick, Lane Johnson, Pugh or Fluker in the second. If Fluker gets picked dump Clary get Gaither’s ass into gear or sign a free agent for LT. Fluker needs a weight clause in his contract he looks like a big boy in that pic

      I think Big Lazy will be shown the door… When Hardwick tells you the weight room is for ‘football player only’ and tells gaither to get lost thats a good sign the OL thinks your injury is BS…

    I don’t care if he’s 5’10″, if that young man can live up to just half of his potential, he worth more than dumbrowski, clary, Gaithersburg an Greene, combined.
    Now let’s see if Telesco an McCoy are thinking the same way.

    Bolts 4 life!

    The question is, will he still be available at #11. Good O line players go fast in the draft.
