Final Note:   The verdict on Lamp is he handles interior defensive lineman better than speedy edge pass rushers which is why scouts see him moving to guard. Forrest played left tackle in college but the right side may suit him best. Give him the right system/coaching and you have a quality lineman for inside or out.  He should come off the board in mid to late 2nd round or early 3rd.
