Boston College senior OG Ian Silberman is a "much more" natural fit at guard, "where he can put his strength, toughness and limited quickness to use in a short area," according to CBS Sports' Derek Stephens.
The 6-foot-5, 293-pound Silberman "boasts a tackle-like frame with a chiseled upper-half and impressive muscular definition throughout, but plays with the nasty demeanor and blue-collar approach of a true trencher," writes Stephen. The former four-star recruit began his career at Florida but transferred to BC in January. Stephens believes he plays tight and is a non-agile athlete, though Silberman does get a head of steam when his number is called to pull or trap. "His strong, active hands help him to compensate for lateral issues when sliding as a pass-protector, so he could get a shot at tackle with the Golden Eagles, but all indications are, at least when considering his NFL prospects, Silberman is a much more natural fit at guard where he can put his strength, toughness and limited quickness to use in a short area," Stephens wrote.
