Scouting Report/Player Notes

Physically gifted player who could be the first Alabama lineman to hear his name called on draft night in 2013. Fluker is only a redshirt junior but all indications are he will depart after the 2012 season and become an instant starter in an NFL offense. He is about as talented a right tackle prospect you will see, gifted with athletic ability and incredible size. He is rated as a top 25 player by most outlets going into the 2012 season, and should be one of the top overall offensive tackles in the country. Could have easily left school after his sophomore season which he garnered a lot of national attention, but decided to go back to school to honor a promise he made to his mother, which I really admire. He has missed some time due to injury, but for the most part has been healthy and a dominant player when he’s able to be on the field. Second team All-SEC as a sophomore and should continue to improve in 2012.
