I think it depends on the kind of LT you want, if you want serviceable it is hit and miss...if you want a probowl guy you have to go first round Top 10. Since 2004 there have been only 7 pro bowl offensive tackles found after the 1st round. And outside of the top 10 there are only 3 more players...Joe Staley 1-28, Ryan Clady 1-12 and Duane Brown 1-26.

Michael Roos – 1 Pro Bowl (200
Jason Peters – 5 Pro Bowls (2007-2011)
Tyson Clabo – 1 Pro Bowl (2010)
Jermon Bushrod – 2 Pro Bowls (2011, 2012)
Marcus McNeill – 2 Pro Bowls (2006, 2007)
Andrew Whitworth – 1 Pro Bowl (2012)
Donald Penn – 1 Pro Bowl (2010)
