    At first when I saw this I thought it said Stanley and I was thinking "Damn, is Chad Stanley (God) really that fast?"

    STAY AWAY TEXANS. DO NOT BE WOWED BY THE NUMBERS!!!!!

    I just pray that our new FO isn't as stupid as our last one when it comes to pro-day numbers and such. This guys couldn't block to save his life in a game, and I want ZERO part of him. I would take a Journeyman OT over Staley before the 5th.

    awesome, hopefully he goes before us and pushes Kalil back.

    That is very fast for a lineman.

    Clearly I care about the 40 time of a OT who operates in less 2 FEET of space. Yes that 40 time sureeeee will come in handy.:sarcasm:

    I mean unless we are moving him to TE this is POINTLESS.

    Oh wait he can start at LT and be our 3rd TE???? Versatility oh yea. :poker:

    Tony Ugoh could be better, but neither are worth drafting for more than ST and depth right now. Ugoh is untapped, Staley is overhyped and less talented than Seth Wand coming out, with less potential.

    Gallery at least dominated in college and had a brute reputation to go along with his awesome workout numbers. He was just a bust, nobody could have predicted what he is now.

    Well it's just an indication of his foot speed. Lot easier for a 4.8 guy to handle the speed rusher than a 5.4 guy. To completely ignore it is how you get Victor Riely's of the world palying there. Arm length, punch , slide and shuffle, knee bend and athletisim all play a part. I usually look for who is at around 5.0 as a first bench mark to see who has a legitimate shot at playing on the left side. I mean you can stick Jordan Black out there...but you're going to pay a price for that. Dockery is a fine offensive lineman, but you'll never see him on the left side. Erick Winston has all of the numbers. He also has short arms. Take's a rare athlete to play OLT for sure.
