Re: The Cost Of James Casey
Pretty simple math replace a 5th rd. pick (Casey) with a better prospect in 6th (Kyle) doesn't really = does it? Juszczyk is a football player, pure & simple. If want to improve position at least use a late 5th if not forget about it.
Also why would Kubiak get rid of a player he clearly loves, developed & adopted? I think he will keep him, have him cut some weight, get quicker & use three TE sets more. Casey is not a fullback. He is good enough to block outside & down the field.
One more thing about the Harvard kid, he is not a battering ram. He is no Leach Leach uses smarts, is fundamentally sound blocker, good explosiveness with passion for taking care of assignments. He could be a sneaky weapon out of the backfield after securing max protection.
2012 Draft was Mercilus
