Yea Glenn should be a beast. I would have preferred him or one of the Wisconsin kids.

I would have preferred Glenn also, Amini is too much of a project. And he's not that good in pass pro, which is very alarming considering he went against DII competition.

Just means his body type and skill set is much better suited for guard. What I am reading about the guy is that he is likely to be an absolute beast in the run game. Pencil him in between gross and kaliI

Would he be a left guard? Why not throw him next to Otah and let those two run crazy over the right side. Then let Hang run the left side since he is more experienced.

I think they said that he would compete at lg. However , I do think putting him at RG next to oath would be nasty. They would open up massive holes in the run game.

From Peter Kings MMQB:

Best pick, offense: Amini Silatolu, G-T, Midwestern State, 40th overall to Carolina. Multiple teams targeted him late in the first round, and GM Marty Hurney got a great value here. He'll bring an attitude and versatility to the Panthers and should be a 10-year starter wherever Carolina needs him.

In the post-pick presser, that's where they said they were putting him.
