For real though, why Quayshawne Buckley?
I have followed his career closely, have met him in person several times, have seen him play in persona bunch, and i was curious what you like abut him?
I have my take but im curious to hear yours.
He has some upside, but has some other major issues.
I don't know much about him other then he has a large frame, room to fill out, and has been productive. I know he has off field issues, but ironically that is a bit of a plus when someone shows up senior year and produces (ie candidate for finally got his head on straight and tapping into potential not used before).
They play Florida State on Saturday and will the best look of him for me all year.
At this point its a shot in the dark, there aren't many 6th/7th round D-Lineman I've seen a lot of.
I wouldnt be mad with the pick, Tomsula might be one of the few guys that could get the most out of him, but IMO he does not have an NFL head on his shoulders. He was actually recruited by Oregon state, washington, and washington state, probably others, before committing to be a coug. Then he didnt qualify based on his high school academics. Then he was suppose to become a beaver. Cant quite remember what happened with that, but he ended up a Vandal after that, Then had the DUI where he wrecked his car into a couple of parked cars. His stats are also kind of inflated just based on the amount of offensive snaps the vandals see. He is one of the few guys on the roster that actually have talent right now, but he wastes it a lot of the time. He has ok #'s but he hasnt made differences in games, even early in games before it becomes a blowout.
My personal opinion is he wont be worth it, and will fizzle out quickly. He isiant that bright IMO, and he isaint as dedicated to the game as he should be. He is the type of guy that has good talent and good measurables, but isaint dedicated to use them to their full potential.
Take it FWIW from a guy that gets called a homer quite a bit around here.
