Great read indeed!! This part was my favorite:
When Justin Smith came out for the NFL draft after his junior season in college, incoming Missouri line coach Craig Kuligowski watched as a Cincinnati Bengals assistant coach arrived with an endurance test administered to all prospects. "After about 20 or 25 minutes, Justin got exhausted and said he needed a break," Kuligowski said. "We were like, 'Wow, you really broke him down.' And the coach said, 'Most guys don't last five minutes.' " The Bengals made Smith the No. 4 pick in the draft.
Loved the part where Tomsula says this is a guy thats puking in March! This guy will be sorely missed around here when he retires and filling those shoes will be darn near impossible.
