I'd love to see him on the roster as a backup, maybe one versatile enough to fill almost any position on the line in case of injury. Then see what he really has.
I think he's probably too tall to play interior OL, but a good swing tackle is a must for an effective Offense. I hope he shows up in the preseason. A. Davis should benefit from some competition. He seems like a nice kid, but I don't see much of a sense of urgency from him. Maybe Boone could help with that. If not, maybe Boone could take his job until the urgency shows up. Either way, here's hoping for a good, tough OL this year.
