I am sorry, I have to sound the BS horn. You are the 2nd person in this thread who has made the left tackle claim who was been unable to support it.
Fluker is a right tackle and possibly a guard. Lets not turn him into something he isnt.
If I were to rate him as a left tackle, it would be on measurables alone. Which arent even that good considering he had a weight problem during the season. He might be a 5th rounder as a backup left tackle if someone was feeling like a gamble. In no way does he have the feet to play LT.
Lol. That's all I can say.
Mingo has like two snaps direct against fluker on that last drive and gets pressure both times.
But sure, he "shut him down" because they were quick throws and screens, and a combo of other things.
And sure, fluker is a top 10 LT. Just not in reality.
These late "risers" are more agent chatter than actual evaluation.
I don't know how anyone can watch Fluker flail his arms in an attempt to gain momentum in his stone footed drop back, and call him a LT with all seriousness. Not to mention he was supplemented with Michael Williams and Brian Volger for a fair bit.
Didn't AJ McCarron play the last 6 games with injured ribs on a sack allowed by Fluker in the Mississippi St. game?
The tape shows it all....Fluker DOMINATED Mingo
