JohnCarlo Valentin appears to be your prototypical guard prospect, possessing the size to physically overwhelm interior defensive lineman at the point of attack. His recruitment was strange, as he visited the Sooners when they hosted Akron and then not much was heard of him after that until he committed.

If Valentin puts in the work and sheds some bad weight (some people are saying he is closer to 350 than 335), then I wouldn't rule out a possibility of him being a right tackle.
