Chris Steuber Ranking
#4 out of 357 overall
#2 at OT
Monroe is a versatile lineman, who has the skill and technique to be a dominant all-around tackle. He possesses great size, a long wingspan and forceful leg drive. He keeps defenders at bay with his reach and uses his quickness and lateral movement to shield them from getting around the end. He has the ability to get to the second level and be an instrumental part of the rushing attack
Tom Marino's Ranking
#1 out of 501 overall
#1 at OT
Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis Veteran LT Tra Thomas signed a three-year deal with the Jaguars earlier this year, but a source said they can easily get out of the contract after one season. Monroe projects to play left tackle so Thomas' days as a Jaguar could already be numbered.
