Those constant double teams can wear on a big man. The other guy's on that line have to be accountable for some of that by not attracting some of those double teams themselves. If you only have to double one guy .... yeah , he's going to wear down.
No offense to 76 but he is just repeating old scouting reports that over exaggerated this low effort B.S.. When a big guy gets doubled alot it does wear them down. He was doubled alot. When he wasn't he made a lot of really good plays. Even when he was doubled early in games he mad a lot of big plays.
Might not be the sexy skill position so many want but this guy is good! His skill set is perfect for Wades scheme. He is better than Mitchell at getting penetration and better than Cody against the run. He would be a solid pick at 27.
Really there is only two WR's that are worth picking at 27. after them the talent pool is pretty even for a good while. What you get in the 3rd round will be very close to what you get in the early second.
Our DL needs MORE talent now! Watt is really the only true above average player on the DL that is in the future plans. Mitchell is blah! Smith's time is coming to an end soon. Probably next season. None of the backups are noteworthy. You have to have at least 5 solid guys for a rotation or the DL will wear down later in the year.
Even if you make a case that Mitchell could be a solid rotation guy we still need at least one more really good layer on the DL.
