Kid was recruited by three major SEC schools - UGA, Florida and 'Bama, but didn't qualify due to academics. The football talent is there, or those schools wouldn't have paid any attention to him. We're not talking about him being looked at by local schools like GT, FIU, or The Citadel, and FWIW, Valdosta St. is one of (if not the top) D-II football program. I don't think he's going to step in like an All-Pro, but we draft players based on their football skills, not academia. The latter is the reason this kid didn't go to a prime-time D-I school and the former is the reason why he should be a solid pick.

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.


The people that think this guy was going to be a UDFA are oblivious to the facts.

He is a good football player with imposing physical tools to exceed in the NFL

I LOVE that nickname.

I keep misreading his name as "Bugkila" due to my extreme insomnia, so now I'm going to have visions of a maniacal African exterminator driving a giant truck, obliterating any insects unfortunate enough to cross his path...

He had no problems with that level of competition and would have looked even better if the rest of that line wasn't a train wreck.  He was quick to the second level on run plays and never let the defender get to his body on pass plays.  Good footwork in the pocket as well.
