No biggy.  Worst case just PUP list him and bring him back when another CB gets hurt.

While I agree that any comparisons to Otah would be foolish, I do not think Kugbila can afford to miss time at this point in his development and that it is an important issue.

 

While I wish injury to no one on our team, Kugbila's health and participation are especially important at this juncture.  He is the main competition to supplant Hangartner as the starter at RG and has a lot to learn in order to accomplish this.  Not only is Kugbila a rookie from a D-II school, he only started 2 years for the Valdosa St Blazers and spent that time working out of a 2 point stance.  He is going to need to completely alter his stance, and numerous aspects of his game in order to be a competent NFL starter.   

 

On top of this, and though he has a solid NFL frame, his workout at the combine put up some strength training red flags.  Only having 23 repetitions in the bench press is not very impressive.  He is going to need serious time in an NFL weight room to fill out his frame and meet his natural potential. 

 

Though Kugbila has a "high ceiling" (I hate this cliché) he is a very raw talent and needs every practice he can get if he has any hope of competing at RG this year.

 

 

His bench press number is low due to his long arms....... While he may have to learn new technique i have no doubt he will pick it up  .....the coaches and the GM says that  he has pretty good instincts

I am not knocking the kid, though I believe he will benefit immensely by an NFL weight training program.  He had the 8th longest arms in the draft among lineman (34.88 inches) and only 2 with longer arms put up more reps (Rogers Gaines 28, Lane Johnson 28). 

 

That being said, D.J Fluker has 36.75 inch arms.  That is ridiculous.....
