2011 NFL Draft: Marcus Cannon Is Our Man:

After going over every possible player in the Top 50, I have settled on one that could be there at #48, Marcus Cannon.

His name should not be foreign to the lips or minds of all of you that read this site regularly as I posted a mock that had him being selected in the 3rd round. Now, it is looking like he will never make it down that far. If the Raiders are fortunate enough to have him fall to them in the second round, he has to be selected.

At 6'5 358, Cannon is a mountain of a man. He is also a Mountain that moves, running a 5.12 40. I don't see him coming in and taking Jered Veldheer's place, but I do see him coming in and starting right away at RT, LG or RG and that is what we need out of this draft, starters on the O-Line, CB and OLB.

Of all the players available at #48 Cannon has the best chance of being elite. He was the anchor for the third ranked Horned Frogs O-Line and he didn't allow a sack in his Junior Season

Cannon has the ability to push defenders around in the run game and is above average in the passing game. Imagine a right side of Langston Walker and Marcus Cannon. That is some serious beef up front that would be paving the way for Darren McFadden..

From NFL.com:

Cannon is a big boy with sneaky athleticism that could develop into a starting right tackle at the next level. He shows good initial quickness and can really push around defenders once he gets his hands on them. He moves well enough to mirror defenders in pass protection and shows the ability to pursue moving targets in the second level on run plays.
