    I just don't get that warm tingly feeling about Frye. I really like the Studdard signing, but I'm fairly indifferent about Frye and feel he will actually prevent us from drafting a legit starting calibur LT soon.

    I think Frye is pretty Raw but if he proves to be coachable he'll be interesting in the next year or so. I thought he was a good insurance policy pick over the next few years.

    I also think Kubiak does want to run more of a ZBS but doesn't have the personnel to pull it off. That's where i think the zone/power mix from Sherman comes in. Looks like for the most part we're grooming linemen for the future.

    I like Frye...

    I don't know if he is going to be an eventual starter for us or not, but I like him as an athlete and football player...

    I think at minimum he is a solid back up for us

    Frye is a project - time will tell - defies categorization - could play any position on the line thus provides solid depth - better run blocker than pass protector - my best guess would be Pitts back up :shades:

    I like Frye as well. I think he has the potential to be a starter for us down the road. He definitely has more athleticism than Studdard.

    I heard that on 610 also. I am hoping for big things out of him.

    We see this differently. I think Studdard will be an above average guard for us soon, and will be a steadying force on our line. I think he is rock solid. Frye has so many questions that it is hard to expect much out of him. Most of the project OT's that are drafted late are more developed as pass-blockers already or have outstanding feet and long arms. Frye is athletic, but isn't quite the typical project OT...of course Spencer wasn't anything close to a typical LT. Kid should be at RG.

    I don't think Frye nor Studdard start for us at any point in point in the near future, and maybe in their whole careers, unless someone gets injured...

    I think Studdard will start next year. I think he plays enough this year. I doubt Frye sees the field for this year, and sucks it up next year because he isn't ready, and falls into a Seth Wand type cycle with vicious riddiculing and delaying of development from coaching.

    I got a feeling Frye is your next Texan's center. He was never drafted as an OLT canidate. Mark White is not likly to make the club. But it seems that they're tracking in the direction of finding guys for '09 and 10. Pitts can't go on for ever. Neither can Flanagan or McKinney.

    Okoye hasn't singed....

    Note that Miami #9 hasn’t signed Ted Ginn and the 49ers #11 havn’t signed Patrick Willis either...

    Once of these guys sign, it may move things...

    Yes. I agree with this assessment. Studdard and Frye share a few similar traits. Studdard might not be a prototypical ZBS lineman, but he is nasty, works hard on every play and gives his 100% on every play. Frye also has a good work ethic and looks like he is willng to learn. Remember all, these are late draft picks. This is when you look for diamonds in the rough.
