When he lines up, looking from the rear, he looks like another OT. Also, if you go to Rice you can't be a dummy. They graduate mostly everybody and all seem to be in the sciences. Bet on it that he is smart. He looks like a really big Delanie, won't be as deft, but will be a great blocker. He is fast so he can get downfield to bloc like delanie. Like they say, the knock is that his catches aren't clean...Clean? I personally don't care if a catch is clean or not. Just matters is he catches it.
I think this video shows some of the skills we're all looking for. When I this I see clay to be molded. That earlier video was older and this one possibly shows Vance can grow in all areas of his game.

This. I like his potential. He's a good prospect now, but give him some pro quality coaching and some time to develop and he could be an absolute monster. His size will help him become a major asset in the red-zone.

Really? I thought the Reid pick was rather obvious, but Carradine is a hell of a pick up, that's the future replacement for Justin Smith, along with another outstanding pass rusher in Lemonier and the big, physical receiving TE that people have wanted for a long time. All their picks are guys that need to be coached up, but they've gotten some big names in there. Carradine to me was the biggest surprise, I thought he would be gone in the late 1st round for sure.
VD had questionable hands and he fixed em. i dont have a problem with this pick. hes got size and speed, walker was too short to play TE. this guy will free up VD to get more involved in the passing game
