Today we turn our attention to the left tackle position as we name our Big Blue View Preseason All-NFC East Team. Your candidates are after the jump.

The candidates:

Jason Peters, Eagles -- A five-time Pro Bowlers who was named All Pro for the first time following the 2011 season. Entering his ninth season, Peters is one of the best left tackles in the game. Peters score +27.6 in the pro Football Focus grading system. The second-best score? David Stewart of Tennessee scored +14.7.

Will Beatty, Giants -- Did an adequate job in 10 games last season, his first as the starting left tackle. Missed the rest of the season with a detached retina. The Giants need Beatty to be healthy, which he was not during OTAs and mini-camp, and to build on what he did last season. Beatty had a -1.2 PFF grade.

Doug Free, Cowboys -- Free has been the left tackle for the Cowboys for the past two seasons. PFF graded him at -11.9 last season after Free was +17.4 in 2010. Which Free will the Cowboys get in 2012?

Trent Williams, Redskins -- Played well for Washington in his rookie season, allowing only two quarterback sacks and earning a +3.8 PFF grade in 10 games before an ankle injury and a season-ending suspension for violating the league's drug policy. If Williams can avoid issues like that going forward, as he seems to want to, he could be a dominant left tackle.

Valentine's View -- Your poll is below. I know this could be considered influencing the vote, but if you don't vote for Peters you need to be able to explain why. and 'I hate the Eagles' is not a good enough reason.
