Oh. Okay. Well I wonder where the representative for FB is...or Guard for that matter. Too bad that couldn't find representatives for them.

A guard was invited. Cordy Glenn may be listed as a tackle in that entry but he will be playing on the interior at guard in the NFL. Even at that, David DeCastro is the best guard but he opted to be at home with family and friends just like Riley Reiff and Luke Kuechly. Fleener is the best tight end and he is very deserving of that billing but at the end day he's probably off that invite list with the likes of Randle and McClellin. Stephen Hill presents a "rags to riches" type story due to his initial Day 3 Advisory grade and his immense rise to 1st round consideration. You can make the same argument for Fleener because most scouting contingents had him as the #3 prospect behind the likes of Clemson's Dwayne Allen and Georgia's Orson Charles before the evaluation process began.

So to address your argument, they did find a guard prospect who graciously declined so the heir apparent in Cordy Glenn is listed as a tackle when we all know he'll be a guard at the next level.

Roger that. Are one of those Tackles supposed to play Center too? Point is these are the guys that are probably going to go in the first round...Except for Randle probably...not just the best player at their position...
