LT Andrew Datko, 6-6, 321, Florida State: ranked only 17th on NFLDraftScout.com's tackle ratings , also has his supporters, including those at National Football Post: http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/college_player_scouting_report.html&player=36044
Datko took over starting LT for FSU as a True Freshman in 2008 and continued in that role until a left shoulder problem that began in 2010 ended his 2011 season after four games.
He began having issues with a surgically-repaired shoulder toward the end of preseason camp but still managed to start the first four games of the 2011 season, before being put on the shelf for the rest of the year.
The injuries are going to be the killer for Datko., who underwent surgery last summer to repair problems with his shoulders. He had separated one of them and tore the labrum in the other during his junior season.
Datko also isn’t going to be a good fit for every team. He’s a finesse blocker who moves well and blocks well in space. He mirrors the defender well and plays a smart game.
Shoulder injury in 2010, which snapped a streak of 27 consecutive starts, before the injury relinquished just one sack in 11 games (all starts) on the season, stifling heralded pass rushers from Oklahoma, Miami, Clemson, Florida and Virginia Tech.
Started every game at the left tackle position in 2009, and only allowed two sacks all season, shutting out 2010 first round pick Derrick Morgan (Georgia Tech), and 2011 first round pick Robert Quinn (UNC).
How do you feel about Andrew Datko, an injury risk, that may be available as late as the 5th round.
