Lol it's funny how I said I didn't know any info on him I was looking for the reasoning which could have been given without the sarcasm. I really wish I could run into a few of you clowns at a game.

Would you fight us muffintops?

Also he was BPA at the time. Give him another year. He's a rookie.

yeah it seems like people like to up their post counts by responding to post with sarcasm a lot.

But as for Amini, I have to believe the coaching knew he would struggle, but being sandwiched between Gross and Kalil, that he would not struggle as much. Losing Wharton, had to be a bigger loss than the staff thought, especially with Kalil going down. Look at the Saints with Nicks leaving, even though they brought in Grubbs, that line didnt look the same for the 1st quarter of the season IMO.

In my opinion Wharton should have been kept

We had to get under the cap, so Marty did what he had to do, and Wharton didnt want to restructure.

For the people who pay more attention to o-line play than I do:

Does Amini's struggles mainly come from being beat 1 on 1 by d-linemen or from missed assignments/not being able to pick up blitzes? Or a combination of both?

IMO a combination of both.

The second. He very rarely gets beat when he takes proper positioning.

    • Fred "The Boss" Ross STRENGTHS  Handled a heavy target rate over last two seasons. Catches with strong hands and excellent arm extension. Capable hand fighter who is able to claw his way back inside against corners with leverage. Plays with good hand quickness to reach high and secure throws that are right on top of him. Does a good job of utilizing his body as a shield. Offers viable punt return option. Had 10 of his 37 punt returns go for 15 or more yards. WEAKNESSES  Short-stepper with vertical limitations. Physical press corners can grind him up off the release. Lacks the long speed to back cornerbacks off of him. Had eight drops this season and 13 over last two years. Does not have the feet to shake a talented athlete across from him. Has tight hips and struggles mightily to make adjustments to poorly thrown balls. Lingers at top of his routes rather than firing out of his breaks. Can't create space through burst. DRAFT PROJECTION  Round 6-7 BOTTOM LINE  Ross has adequate size and uses it effectively in space, but his hip tightness and lack of long speed are major concerns. Tight man coverage will be difficult for Ross to beat due to his lack of separation quickness. His route to the pros may be a zone-beater with punt return value.    http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/fred-ross?id=2558197
