A: Jonathan: As good as Long is -- and I'm partial to Michigan men -- I think Clady is the best young left tackle in football. You just don't see people with his feet and strength. Denver got real lucky when Clady slid to its spot at No. 11. Were Clady in the draft today, he'd be a top-three pick and it wouldn't be surprising to see him go No. 1 overall.
Although this is a no-brainer to us here at MHR, it is nice to see Schefter's astute observations displayed for all the world to see. I remember being thrilled to get Clady at that spot thinking he would team with Cutler for a decade of dominance. Well, one half of that equation will come to fruition... We really did hit a grand slam with Clady, and I agree, he would be #1 if that draft were to happen today.
