Ideal C play, and will be in backup rotation a G as well until Goodwin is done - 1 - 2 years. He'll easily put on 10lbs with our nutrition and weight program over the next year. Hard worker and love his blue collar roots as he'll just be simple and easy to adapt with a personality like that. I will really root for this guy after watching this and think he really has a chance at G or C.
Yeah, it was very interesting to me to hear them (49ers) ask him why he was only 300+ and not 320 (size of a guard). Most C's are around 300. I wonder if they were looking at him as a nasty right guard initially? No need to nutrition now that he's in the pro's. For as feaking had as he has worked on his own and how strong he has become, he looks like he could become even bigger/stronger/more define. That's scary.
He must love pancakes b/c that's all he eats on game day!
PS: He lines up at FB a few times too. He can replace Sopoaga for that role this year.
