Hopeful for the Alabama kid to fall, but I'm not holding my breath. Past him there's nothing to be overly excited about because they all have flaws.

Uhhhh... Kouandjio will likely struggle as a LT at the next level simply because he lacks the agility to handle speed rushers. He's better suited for the RT position to be honest. So, he's flawed too. Lewan, Matthews and Robinson are possibly the best LTs in this draft.

Has anyone heard any news about kugzilla?  Im wondering if hes putting in extra work in the off seaso to get up to speed after missing his first season in the NFL.

 

Also wondering how Amini is doing with his rehab.

 

Damn, we could have an almost brand new o-line next year. 

 

I'm not sure what to think about that, but I do hope we can get this guy and put him on the right side for a year and get at least one more year out of Gross. We will need Gross and Kalil's leadership out there. This team is a contender and a brand new o-line learning the ropes could hurt us next year.

Name a prospect that doesn't have a flaw.

 

Exactly.  Then you have guys like former Wake Forest LB Aaron Curry who is labeled as a can't miss prospect and the "safest pick in the draft" and ends up going #4 overall and... BUUUUUUUUST!!!

I really don't see that. His feet seems fine -- good even. Are you sure you're not thinking about Morgan Moses?

isnt he a guard? 

 

He played T in college but projects to a G due to his height (I assume)--Long Arms and big hands though, so he could be a nice T in my limited opinion.

He is pretty raw and not so mobile based on the tape I've viewed. Two weeks ago he was projected in the 5th or 6th round...not really sure how or why he shot up the rankings so fast.

nice save... we need real skill!

thomas is like many others in this draft could go anywhere form 2nd(late) to 5th(early). a few things and hes there or falling.

 

 

any player picked at 28, will have questions/flaws. i would gladly take a flawed lewan, kouandjio, evans, ebron, gilbert, bejamin, or lee at 28.

 

 

my only beef with the draft, is the iants are picking before us..... god i hate that! we stuck it to them last year and they have similar needs at OL, WR, and CBs. They could easy ruin half the draft for the panthers..... micky is a legit gm too......

Thomas with 35 reps at 225 with basically 35 " arms is impressive.  It don't tell you if he can play but upper body strength like that don't hurt.

35 is GREAT for long arms.... he put in work. plus hes "only" 305 lbs, he could easily get bigger and stronger....hmmmm did great against clowny and senior practice ... hmmmm
