Fox 5 Sports Anchor Ross Shimabuku said Fluker is a punishing run blocker and he’s expected to compete at right tackle.

Fluker played for the 2-time national champions Alabama and he competed in the SEC – which is considered the toughest conference in the NCAA.

“Haters will say quicker defenders will pass by him, but when you’re that big – it can take two days to get around Fluker,” Shimabuku said.

Second round of the NFL draft takes place on Friday.
