Give this regime a little credit before jumping off the edge. We have (2) 3rd rounders now in a pretty deep draft.
Another good thing out of this, we finally addressed our OL issue with a 1st rounder.
My favorite clip was seeing him run stride for stride with the ballcarrier downfield and picking off defenders. That's exactly what we need out of our LT. Plus he's got the feet to handle the edge rushers that we've never had at LT. Methinks he compares favorably to a converted TE that happened to be a pro bowl LT last season in Jason Peters of the Buffalo Bills.
