Mike McGlinchey, T, Notre Dame

Outside of the Browns war room, there is not a T that is worth a top-10 pick. On the other hand, inside of it may be a different story.

Barring Dorsey pulling a rabbit out of a hat and making a trade for a starting left tackle that isnÃ’t a stop-gap, Cleveland will have to draft one and work with him.

Mike McGlinchey is for some the top tackle. Is four too high for him? Yes, but what if Cleveland can’™t find a deal good enough to move down and has McGlinchey as the best option to draft?

Unlike past recent drafts, McGlinchey is not the only one not worth a top-10 pick. All of the draft-eligible tackles fit that criteria. He comes in and is instantly the best option to replace Joe Thomas.

Then again, the competition makes it that way regardless of the draft pick with Shon Coleman and Spencer Drango as the current options.

McGlinchey is technically sound with very solid footwork. However, one issue I see from him is the lack of physicality. McGlinchey needs to be more physical at the point of attack. Despite that flaw, he would do well stepping in next to LG Joel Bitonio protecting QB Tyrod Taylor‘s blindside.
