There weren't experts arguing that, they were arguing whether he would be a Pro Bowl LT because there were doubts about his ability to handle speed rushers. It was brought up many times that he was a lock for the Pro Bowl every season if he played at RT, but what about LT? He did prove some doubter wrong this season, however, he did struggle with speed rushers like they predicted. Against Chris for instance, Chris got the edge on him a couple of times and then Miami began to motion TEs over to help Jake block him. So, as I was saying, no expert's doubted that he was a top 5 pick, but if you can find an article stating so then I will shut my yap.
