The ESPN.com bloggers released their top 10 left tackle rankings this morning, and of course no players from the NFC West were among the top 10, with the likes of Walter Jones and Orlando Pace now retired.
But second-year pro Russell Okung did get one vote from ESPN NFC West blogger Mike Sando, and I’m sure he’ll be receiving more in the future if he stays healthy.
As Sando notes, Okung has the talent to be an elite player at his position. Now he just has to show the consistency and production over time to prove his worth.
Mike Williamson of Scouts Inc. also said that Okung will be in his top five a year from now.
