Default Welcome Duane Brown

We get the left tackle that fits our scheme best and a 3rd rounder, I think realistically speaking we've made out pretty well so far. Now to make the right decisions on those 3rd rounders, which I'm guessing will be corner and running back.

Sifted through his profile on the nfl site.

http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/duane-brown?id=808

Covered all his positives and negatives.

Since he is now our player, I selected these two sentences from his profile to form my opinion.


"Still a very raw product, but his athletic ability, quickness and frame indicate that he could develop into a special player, if he receives patient coaching."


"A coach that will both light his fire but bring him along slowly while revamping his technique might find gold with Brown. "

History says that Gibbs is that coach..

I just gotta give this regime the benefit of the doubt, they have not disappointed yet..

umm... he does say its his 'surprise' pick of round one, and that's 3 picks after we selected him. Not that I don't like the pick, because I believe Gibbs got his man.

I actually like this pick. We desperately need an offensive lineman, and from the looks of it, Brown is very athletic. This bodes well for his chances in the zone blocking system. I think Gibbs will do well with this one.

No. But IF he comes back, he's probably not going to be the same guy he was before the injury. He's probably going to get kicked inside to play guard... which was his position in college.

Kubiak also said that they had drafted Frye projecting him to kick inside to Guard, too.

So... this is going to be an interesting training camp for our o-line.
