07/17/2012 - Top-five Texas Tech prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 1. OT LaAdrian Waddle...Despite the Red Raiders' focus on the passing game over the past decade, Texas Tech has not been able to produce quality exterior offensive linemen with any real consistency during that time. In fact, with the exception of Daniel Loper, whom the Tennessee Titans selected in the fifth round in 2005, the Red Raiders haven't had a true offensive tackle picked in the NFL draft since 1985. That streak may come to an end this year, however, with the massive Waddle, who enters his senior campaign having started 27 games - including the past 25 consecutively - at the all-important left tackle position. Waddle has the bulk and long arms scouts are looking for but he carries too much weight around his middle and lacks the foot quickness to remain on the blindside against NFL speed. He's earned all-conference recognition after each of the past two seasons, including Second Team honors a year ago, but frankly, has been protected by the quick-passing in this scheme and has yet to demonstrate the type of consistency that would warrant anything other than a late round selection at this point. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
