Tell Chris your opinion.

With the seventh pick in the second round of the draft, the Philadelphia Eagles selected offensive tackle Winston Justice. The Eagles have to believe they got a steal, because Justice was originally going to be taken by the Eagles in the first round, many believed. Justice didn't fall this far due to talent, it was due to character issues.

Scouting Information on Justice: Winston Justice played for the USC Trojans in college and became their starting right tackle just one game into his freshman season. Justice has taken care of some injury problems during the offseason in the past, but it has not affected his season too much. He has had some character issues off the field, including a charge of solicitation of prostitution in 2003 and exhibition of a replica firearm in 2004. He is leaving USC one year early to enter the draft.

Despite having character issues, there's no doubt that Justice has proven to be a top competitor. By playing on the talented Trojans, he has had to go up against some of the toughest linemen in college and has performed well. He has the strength that a tackle needs and is only getting stronger as the years go on. He played right tackle in college for a left-handed quarterback in Matt Leinart and could probably play left tackle if needed. He has the quick feet needed to stop the fast defensive ends from getting around him to the quarterback. His injuries throughout college have not been too severe, and the procedures that he has had should only help him in the long run. Justice's value may drop for a few teams due to his character issues, but that may make it more of a steal for whoever gets him.
