He said they view him as a tackle first but he could kick inside as he has experience there. Was playing around 350 but slimmed down to 322 for his pro day. They love his consistency from snap to snap. They talked about how he gave up 0 pressures against Alabama in 44 passing downs.Rumor was Denver was hoping to get him, but the Pace got to him first. Didn't watch the video, but I've seen some things about him projecting to guard, which is unfortunate if true. If QB is the hardest position to scout, OT must be the second.
In any event, I'm going to call him Mt. Borom.
I am sure that he will look at least a little bit better seeing that he lost 30 pounds during the offseason.Strange that the scouting report for him were so negative on his ability to be an OT at the NFL level. He's definitely not what I would call "light footed" but at the same time he doesn't look terrible, I don't think he looks slower than Massie did last year. Does need to work on his kneebend, his movements look stiff at times, and will probably always have fits with smaller speed rushers, but how many Von Millers are there in the league? Maybe NFL level flexibility program will help.
This and why I said to not be surprised to see him compete at LT. He was a little sloppy and not as quick as you want at 350 at LT but at 320, he's got a shot.He looks more like a tackle than guard to me in the small amount of film I've seen on him.
Not really a road grader, more of a position blocker but I loved his pass sets, quick and on balance.
Thats EXACTLY what they should do. Ive always believed in building an NFL roster through drafting, but well understood that rookies would have to either sit or play in a limited capacity when the league was dominated by 30 year old vets.How great would it be if he was able to take over at RT and Jenkins at LT?
