Walls or tanks? Off my head, good options may be Blastoise for RS, probably Mandibuzz for Defog? Don't take my word for them, though.

A lot, but Mandibuzz is just the physical wall this Gen with Overcoat, and access to Defog, Roost, Ful Play, and Knock Off.

Skarmory has 2 less weaknesses than Mandibuzz, a lot more resistances and higher defence

Skarmory has lesser Sp. Defense, though, and also worse HP, which are the main selling points for Mandi.

Overall, factoring in HP and Defense, Mandibuzz will be more bulky than Skarmory.

Skarmory has a much better typing to wall physical attacks (it resists a hell lot of physical attacks). Stats alone don't make a pokemon better.

No, but the fact that Skarmory will get OHKO'd/2HKO'd by almost every single Special Move, while Mandibuzz is usually able to take one or two is also something that's to be desired for Skarm. The lack of Taunt, Overcoat, and STAB Foul Play also hurt it a lot.
