Good signing, provides added depth. He could challenged Wand and/or Weigart for a starting Tackle position should the rookies not be ready.

I think Winston will be able to play from day one at right tackle. Weigart and McKinney will battle it out for right guard spot.

Ephraim is a solid lineman. I dont think he got to play very much last season because of Khalif Barnes but he has been good enough to start in this league for quite a long time. If he doesn't win the LT job he'll be VERY good depth on the line. I support this pick, its great to see our offensive line is not only getting better starters but better depth as well

Wasnt eprhraim the guy lepsis replaced on Denvers line? he was the premeir LT during their Super Bowl run... Sounds like someone with a lot of knowledge to help our lineman adjust to the new blocking scheme. I don't think he has muched left in the tank as far as starting at LT maybe RT.. since he is aging..

He is a Kubiak coached lineman, I dont believe Kubiak would've wanted him on our team if he didn't think Ephraim could help us out. He may be the starting LT on opening day. Spencer may be the starting LT though by the end of the year depending on how he develops. Ephraim is a very good guy to learn from though.

This would be the ideal scenario.

However, I think Spencer will need a two full training camps and an offseason before he is ready to take over. He has the tools and is a good athlete but needs time to improve his technique, as well as shed some weight.

Kubiak keeps on working his magic there will be no room for slackers on this team. Looks like he is out to make sure he knows exactly what his line is capable of.

Quote from a Bronco fan on another board.

Quote:
All I know is that when he was a Bronco... He straight dominated... He held Freeney to absolutely nothing a few years back.

That's probably the Bronco-Kubiak connection kicking in again

He's a product of Denver's system. In Jacksonville, I could block better than him. He was absolutely horrendous.

But since it is Kubiak that was his coach in Denver, he might be decent in Houston.
From a jag fan. Sounds like one of those Denver style linemen that can be great in a zone blocking scheme..but looks terrible in a traditional setup.

Don't know about overhyped bust--he was a 7th round pick. The Jags were underwhelmed by him so he got beat out by a rookie. Seems like a Denver connection and depth signing.

You're thinking about former Colorado and Chicago RB Rashaan Salaam...

Anyway, I like this pick...Depth and competition is never a bad thing...
