    Who wins the opening day starting spot at RT?

    • Marshall Newhouse
    • Donny Barclay
    • Derek Sherrod

    I really, really, really would like to see it be Sherrod. I just don't have high expectations he'll ever recover fully enough to become a quality OT.... sure hope I am wrong.

    Going Barclay for week one, but I think Sherrod will have more starts this season.

    It pained me to click Newhouse, but I have to agree, Sherrod has a long way to go before he is ready.

    As I am not very high on any of the above...David Bakhtiari.

    I'd be happiest if it was someone besides Newhouse, if only b/c then he would be available as a backup in case Bulaga gets hurt again w/o having to disrupt the line by moving him from RT to LT.

    Tyler Dunne thinks its Newhouse and I'm afraid I have to agree with him.

    Barclay has not shown that he's an effective pass blocker, Sherrod has not fully recovered from the injury, and Bakhtiari is a rookie who will need a season to develop at least.

    They drafted Lacy & Franklin in an attempt to boost the running game.
    I think Newhouse is a terrible run blocker, plus we all know how many sacks & pressures he allowed.
    I can't believe Dunne thinks it's Newhouse.
    I have to bet him that Barclay beats him out.

    I'm going with Barclay, who, for all intents and purposes, played adequately when he was thrown in there last season.

    Datko is 6.6" and 320lbs. and was taught the zone blocking scheme at FSU. If Sherrod is not ready, I'd like to see him at tackle. But he's had trouble with his L shoulder since high school, and has had several operations on it, so unless that is solved, it's going to be Barclay--who looks to be the 3rd choice. Looks like we're going to be running to the left anyway....

    Derrick Sherrod comes out of nowhere, stays healthy and wins the starting job (thus making the offensive line a strength).

    Sherrod was a finesse guy in the first place, seemingly a future left tackle who's #1 job was to protect Rodgers back there.
