NFL Prospect Preview: Alabama OT D.J Fluker

The thing that stands out most about Fluker is his size.  At 339-pounds, he is by far the heaviest of the top of the board tackles in the draft.  Playing at Alabama can't hurt him either as he was facing NFL caliber defensive lineman throughout his career.  Fluker looks the part of an NFL tackle, the question will be can he play the part. 

Here is my coversation with Kirk McNair of BamaMagazine.com on Fluker

If Fluker happened to slip to the Packers at #26, he would be a solid choice.  Green Bay has Bryan Bulaga at right tackle, though he has played at left tackle at times.  Marshall Newhouse is kind of a wild card.  Though he played every snap in 2012, there is questions to whether an upgrade could be made.  Newhouse is also in the final year of his contact.  OT is not a likely spot for Green Bay, but it would be understood.
