Default Adam Stenavich signed to practice squad

Offensive tackle Adam Stenavich signed with the practice squad on Monday. Stenavich was released by the Dallas Cowboys in their final round of cuts and spent time on the practice squad with Green Bay in 2006.

Taken from CloakNNNdaggers's post in another thread......

Adam Stenavich

Offensive Tackle
Projected As: Offensive Guard
5th Year Senior
6’4, 309
Testing: Michigan Pro Day
5.6 Forty Yard Dash
4.82 Short Shuttle
7.91 Three Cone
24-inch Vertical
7 ft 9 in. Broad Jump

Workout Comments:
The 40 yard dash time will certainly be looked down upon. His short shuttle time was one of the better ones put up by lineman his size. On the other hand, his three cone time is decent for his position, but should be better at his size.

Positives:
Being a three year starter is certainly a plus for Stenavich. He has the build of a guard and is flexible for a lineman his size. Has polished technique and plays with a good pad level. Excellent toughness and has a nasty streak. Should be able to be a solid pass blocker inside. He shows decent explosion, gets good pop with his hands, and wins most of the initial battles with defenders. Offers versatility and can move to tackle in emergency situations. Two time All-Conference player.

Negatives:
Stenavich struggles with speed rushers on the edge, which lends to the idea that he'll have to move inside at the professional level. That said, some scouts still question whether or not he can transition to the inside. He doesn’t have a lot of experience pulling and could have trouble reaching linebackers at the second level. He also needs to improve his overall power and lower leg drive.

Overall:
Learning a new position is never easy but Adam Stenavich is capable of doing it. He is a tough player which is the main ingredient of being an NFL type guard. Stenavich will likely go to a team that still focuses on a power running game. Zone blocking teams won’t see as much value in him because he lacks the experience, mobility, and pulling ability for that scheme. Teams that employ power schemes like the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, and Dallas Cowboys will find much greater value in him as a backup guard. As of right now, scouts are projecting him to go between the 5th and 6th rounds.

From what others have said, the Cowboys released him to make room for Larry Allen so he could retire as a Cowboy.

that just kinda jumps out @ me.

FYI, Adam was starting LT for Michigan & Jake Long played RT his senior season (05).

Why? I am not sure how often a Guard has to run a 40 during a game but I do not think it is that often.
