He's raw but has great upside with tremendous size, strength, athleticism.

Where are you getting this from? His combine numbers look fairly pedestrian to me. Typical mid/late round lineman type numbers.

Gettleman has said all along we need to get big on the lines.


So why is everyone acting surprised about this draft?

case it's not what they want, outside of star.

Horrible selection considering who was available. Could have had him in the 5th.

A lot of rustled Jimmies in this thread lol. I don't know what all the complaining is about, it's obvious Gettleman addressed our biggest weaknesses in the draft so far. Our D-Line although great at getting to the QB was horrible at stopping the run. Third string RB's were getting 150 yards on us last season. He drafted a O-Lineman because that was one of our worst positions. Cam barely had any time to throw in the pocket last season and took a beating all year long.

We shored up the secondary through free agency. I am glad we are focusing on the interior.

There is no need to be upset

Drafting a G isn't bad, I guess it's just that we're one step from drafting players from South Meck High School that bothers me a bit

I think the point everyone is missing is this : is there any reason for gettleman to think this dude wouldn't be available later, like, WAY later

dumb as hell pick that could have been spent on someone that was actually 4th round talent

gettleman has the experience in the league.

I'm betting his value of players is more accurate than yours, and most "media experts"

At the same time the sites like Walterfootball get a lot of their information from NFL personnel.

Yes I get that if we found a diamond in the rough that we would keep it close to the vest but still, this seems like a 7th round project for which we reached.

If he gets playing time it was a value pick.

Yeah, what a dummy, thinking that an NFL GM who's been in the game for years would know better than "analysts", blog owners and forum dwellers.

From Tony Pauline:

Edmund Kugbila

School: Valdosta State
Position: G
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-America and all-Conference honors the past two years.
Positive: Large, athletic offensive lineman with a huge upside. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage, and stays square. Jolts defenders with terrific hand punch, turns them from the action, or easily out positions opponents from the play. Moves well on his feet, displays the ability to slide in space and easily steers defenders from the action in pass protection. Flashes power in his lower body and drives defenders off the ball run blocking. Quick out to the second level, can readjust to linebackers, and hit a moving target. Massive and tough to get around.
Negative: Plays back on his heels and does not show a killer instinct. Must improve his blocking balance. A bit haphazard in his movement.
Analysis: Kugbila is a large, athletic lineman with the strength required for a power running offense and movement skills to line up in a zone-blocking scheme. He possesses tremendous upside but needs to improve the details of his position and pick up his all-around intensity. If he pulls it all together and is coached properly, Kugbila possesses starting potential for the next level.
