Yep. All these discussions are academic until the reps mean something.
We aren't going to know anything about Darnold until we see him in the actual games. I will make this semi-hyperbolic statement, if he doesn't come out of the gates swinging against his old team in Game 1.....I don't think that will bode well for the future.
Bold. I love it. I think the coaches want youth too.
Many have been knocking BC at LT
BC had the highest pff for olineman in history, the highest ras, and lowest pressure rate in the draft. As a sophomore he faced P5 teams like USC, Washington, Utah and Tennessee, and allowed a total of four pressures in those 4 games. He has battled 1st rounder Payton Turner from Houston. BC was a 2020 consensus All-American, had the best 2020 pass blocking grade among OTs in this draft class and allowed two pressures on 293 pass blocking regular season snaps last year. He is the only player we traded up to get high in the 3rd and yet some here post that he sucks because he hasn't faced anybody. Its BS.
Brown never gave up a sack at Alabama.
I too believe youth will win the day by the end of the season and BC and Brown will both be starting at some point this year, by design or by injury.
Now Moore at center, that is bold. I can see it happening though, the guy is a brick wall. We should have drafted him, at least in the 7th. I am sure Moore makes the team and if he doesn't win center, I could see him beating Miller.
