In his defense if he went to his second read this year he would have been sacked. Look at the prior year if you want to see him go through progressions. I feel like this year he was trying to do too much, but didn’t really have any other options. 

It was the exact same oline from last season.

Which is a gigantic red flag. For an OL that looked really good last year, there would've been some early NFL entrants had there been any true talent there. Two NFL RBs just made them look a lot better than they were. Sam Howell and Josh Downs were the entire offense this year.

Am I the only person that gets a hard on after reading this scouting report?

Nevertheless, being lean doesn’t stop Cross from being a violent and physical tackle who exudes competitive toughness. Finishing a play doesn’t always mean putting your man in the dirt, but it appears that the Mississippi State OT did not get that memo. Cross looks to punish his opponent every play, whether in pass protection or as a mauler in the ground game. Despite his lean frame, he’s powerful and displays a decent anchor in pass protection.

Alongside his physicality and violence, Cross brings elite athleticism to the position.

 

Enough of the bullshit.  Stop being silly and get this dude (or someone comparable) and let him anchor the left side.  Damn I want a dog at LT

 

Keep in mind his "lean" frame is at 305lbs and projects to add another 10-20lbs of muscle.  Godalmighty lets do this

I don’t care who was blocking, they couldn’t hold their blocks for whatever reason. If they have proven they could in the past and now can’t, there is a coaching/development issue. (Example) If you have a Pro Bowl LT and he allows 5 sacks, him being a Pro Bowl LT doesn’t really matter as he failed to do his job.

Two NFL RBs helped make Sam look great too.

Replace Howell with any other college QB and UNC is worse. He put up very good numbers in the bowl game last year against the best D in the SEC without both RBs and his #1 WR. What really hurt UNC this year was no other WR outside of Downs stepping up. Downs was able to replace Brown in the bowl game last year. But one receiver just isn't enough. Once teams figured out the could double Downs and spy Howell the going got really tough but he still kept the Heels competitive.

It's easy to tell the folks that didn't actually watch the game but still want to try to talk.

You say stuff like this but then you are implying that the national scouts and whatnot are not doing a deep dive into his career.  For the most part he is being projected as a borderline first round pick and around the 4rth or 5th best qb in the draft.  These guys have watched him, they understand the nuances of his team, you are not letting us in on some big secret.  Yeah man he has talent and will probably start at some point in the nfl, is he worth the 6 pick in the draft and are you hitching your wagon to him for the next 4 years to jumps start your franchise.....hell fuging no.

I don't really have an opinion one way or the other on his pro potential. Just stating 2 NFL RBs helped him, you can't argue that, they did help him. One bowl game sample size, meh.
