    Right, because we have no other areas of concern.

    I feel like he has short arms too but maybe I am picky

    I've been waiting to look at Asiata and Lamp.

    Hope to see more from Garcia.

    Lamp doesn't have the long arm and the bulk one looks for at OT, so "they" been wanting to see him at OG.
    But his hand size does explain part of his success at OT.

    I still think he's a good candidate; he's like Winston with bigger mitts.
    Everything you look for in an OT besides arm length and bulk.

    Well unfortunately, you can't draft a head coach.

    Looks like a good prospect. Played RG starting his jr year. Never has had an injury . Western Michigan has a good passing offense so coached in pass blocking. Currently rated #6 OT by Walterfootball projected as a 3/4 round selection. Found one reference that he has an excellent wingspan. Found comment that his best position may be OG. Found some comment that he is marginal in both run blocking and pass blocking but don't know how recent this analysis is.

    Why is draft stuff being put in this thread?

    Please put draft info in the draft forum.

    Well, it is a thread about the 2017 OL. It seemed natural to me that people would post about draft picks they wanted.

    Generic we need to draft a G and T to go with these vets, sure. When it gets to actual draft prospects it should go in the draft forum.

    That makes sense as to why you didn't post something like this in the QB thread. It's all about "draft a guy in the 1st 3 rounds" but not much about a specific player. Good call.

    Time to throw includes several variables; a few were listed in the article.
    Those not included (besides the time allowed by the blocking) are the long wind up, the time it takes the QB to set up to throw, or reset to throw when he needs to move around, and the time the QB needed to locate a receiver (his reads, both pre-snap and post-snap).
    When adding all the factors together, Osweiler could be late by about 1/4 of a second as compared with an Osweiler with a short stride, a quick release, and a quick mind (the franchise QB).

    I agree, but if there's mentioning of a name or two in passing, I think it's OK.
