Here's another one that doesn't know talent.


You still haven't told us why that LT is so good besides "everyone else said he was good."

And you're a professional college football scout?

One of the weaker OT classes we’ve seen in a while. That said, there are more LT prospects than usual, and teams looking to shore up pass protection will have a lot to choose from. Again, I think we’re seeing the effect of CFB moving to a more pass-happy plan; lots of lighter, quicker guys amongst this group, few maulers.

1. Luke Joeckel, A&M (1st)
Ideal mix of size and agility for the LT position in the NFL. Footwork is consistently excellent as is balance. Can deal effectively with both speed and power rushers. Only knock in pass protection is on his hand technique. Is just an above average run blocker but has good technique and general awareness. Polished and heady player. Well regarded by coaches and teammates except for his noodle arms.


Even his teammates think so.

I'm pretty sure he lifts.

Just a hunch.

Bicep size doesn't mean sh*t to o-line play. Good O-linemen rely on a solid base (wide hips, thick legs and torso) or an athletic kick-slide, a good initial punch (which is more triceps, deltoid, and pectorals), and quick hands and feet. They want tall guys with long arms because it limits the moves a d-lineman can make when you can get your hands on him. Long arms usually mean a guys biceps are elongated. Curls for the girls, not for o-line play.

Id take chance then (if were in the top five, we should try to trade down). Solidify rg and with improvement from silly the line would be solid, then replace gross the following year

How long do you think Gross will play? Especially if we are in rebuild mode again. Not saying your wrong but you have to take that into consideration.


Maybe not too much longer but I think, for now, we're fine. And I'm more concerned about getting a dangerous receiver or disruptive defensive tackle than a left tackle.

We have to go defense this offseason to anticipate the yearly switch of which side of the ball decides to suck.

He's good but I'd rather get an impact defensive or offensive player. I think our tackles are fine, anyway. It's our interior that is the issue.

Yup I agree.
Our tackles are fine. Need to upgrade RG though.

This is the typical Carolina Huddle.
One bad game from a player like Gross and people are crying for a LT. Seriously?

Because you never played footbal or scouted talent for football.


Wood so when did you become a scout?
Trying to evaluate college players through YouTube clips doesnt make you a scout. Or else I would've been one already.
