Football is like life - it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority-Vince Lombardi.

Identifying with us already. Seems he's done a little research if he knows the "keep pounding" motto.

I just realized something: Kugbila is a Patriots type pick. They took Vollmer ahead of his predicted rounds, and he was a foreign import who was not invited to the combine. He was an after thought to their other picks, but became the best player of their class.

All about talent evaluation. Dude could be a D3 player and if he has all the tools can be turned into a good NFL player.

Here is why he was rated so low and picked so high. And why our pick is getting d's and f's from the national media.

The sites that rate players often speak with scouts digging for information. I imagine they rarely speak with coaches.

This is a pure potential pick. The possibility to have an elite G in 4 years and the possibility to have depth this year.

Still think it is a baffling pick.

People who think he's starting should get a grip, Hangartner may suck physically, but he has knowledge of the playbook and the terminology in our system. Hangartner will start again, and Cam ends up on IR.

I think this kid is better than you think he is, but i'll be surprised if we don't sign a decent guard before the season.

Chill out with the extremes.

For telling the truth? If Cam doesn't get the protection he needs, he's going to end up on IR or injured for a long period of games. Are we going to act like Cam didn't almost break his ankle the last game of the year? Or that he came up limping many times during the season?

Kugbilla=Josh Norman 2013 for the huddle.


You all are truly delusional if you expect him to play good as a rookie from D2.

Something on Kugbila to note (per NFLDraftScout):

He was of course the only guy from Valdosta State drafted and there were 19 teams represented at that pro day. I feel a lot of teams were interested in him, including one with one of the most respected o-line coaches in the league...

New England Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia put Kugbila through his pro day workout. Kugbila also had a workout with the Carolina Panthers. He has visits scheduled with the Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs. Kugbila was born in Ghana and lived there until he was 10 years old. The last player drafted out of Valdosta State was linebacker Artie Ulmer, who was selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the seventh round of the 1997 NFL Draft. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

19 teams at a pro day for one draftable player is pretty good indication he was on more teams' radars than the media ever picked up on. I'll say it again, this reminds me very much of a Patriots-type pick. They were probably shocked to find him gone before their late round picks came up, as they aren't used to teams valuing linemen like they do.

People tend to forget one of the reasons Brady has been so successful is because he typically operates behind one of the best lines in all of football.
