You talking then or now? I ask because Boone is much quicker and in better shape than before... so I would think he can handle the pull blocks pretty well.

I just dont see how this dude will be able to get low enough? He'll be facing guys his weight and possibly stronger, but nearly 4 inches shorter.
Can't remember the name at the moment, but Oakland had a top rd OT that sucked at OT, but when moved in at G, he was very good. Another 6' 7"-ish guy, he was.

I believe you're referencing Jared Veldheer? If he's the guy Im thinking of, he even got some time at C as a rookie and impressed. Good to know similarly tall individuals have succeeded on the inside.


Kevin Gogan?

yeah he was a 6' 7'' guard


Played RT in college and for his first 3 years in Dallas, then switched to LG and helped Emmitt Smith win first rushing title. A former 9er as well. 3 Pro Bowls...Google is wonderful!

The guy was a BEAST and a vital part of the offensive line at the time ...I remember one game Steve Young got hurt , and while Steve was on the sidelines in pain, Gogan got hurt on the field, and all of a sudden, Steve went running out on the field to check on him, I think he even beat the medical staff onto the field... that showed how important he was to the team and how his teammates respected him ......If Boone can start giving us Kevin Gogan play , then our line will be more than a dominating unit
Interesting to see that thus far, he's the front-runner to win the RG position.

Right now, it seems they've pretty much made the TC depth chart like:

LT: Staley, Boone, Person
LG: Iupati, Kilgore, Looney, Slowey
C: Goodwin, Kilgore, Slowey
RG: Boone, Kilgore, Looney, Slowey, Beeler
RT: Davis, Boone, Person

The guy they're thinking of is Robert Gallery. But yeah there are other examples of tall OGs being good too.
