I could see a move to OG, but Tackle takes real talent thats a tough move on this level.

Why not let him lose some weight and try him at tight end too if OT doesn't work out?

I think T is often easier for lots of players based on their skill set.

 

Bruce Campbell, Byron Bell.....all suck worse at G than T.  G isn't easier.  T play is just deemed more important.

I'm all game if he is able to make the transition, I'm just happy he's open minded and willing to do what it takes to stay on the team.

That would be awesome hopefully gettlemans eye for talent increases those chances you don't see dlineman, even ones who arent good like fua, get a chance to play o line.

I think Seattle also did this recently with a guy. It's not unheard of, just a bit weird.

If I'm not mistaken, that's J.R. Sweezy who went to NCSU.

It could have been Chandler's idea. We just re-signed Dwan for 2 years and drafted KK.  What chance did Chandler have?  Either way, if it works out, what a find.

 

Raw, but so were first rounders Lane Johnson and Kyle long. 

 

Arm length is good--33 3/4

it also takes awareness and athleticism...and experience. he's got all three of those from what i gather. i think the talent is there as well to be at least a solid rotational/backup guy.
