He had that great leap forward in improvement in his second season as our LT and that sold a lot of people on him. Fred never got the chance to spend two healthy years in the same system learning the same position and gaining experience at the rate Chester did. Chester was ready to play faster than Fred was but that's no real indicator as to where their relative ceilings are.
