After rewatching the game my knock on him was he was slow getting of the ball big time. Hopefully he can fix that with more reps. He has amazing size though. Seen him put his hands up a few times. He has to learn to do that every time if he can't get to the QB because at 6' 6" he can block a lot of passes. Seemed like he had decent speed in the open field for a 340-350 pounder.

We put him on IR for a reason, maybe he has a minor injury but I think the team wants him to sit and learn the game for a whole season and get comfortable being a football player. He showed improvement and potential in the last preseason game. You think the team would put him on IR and pay him if they didn't believe he can develope into a decent football player? I think his real shot at a roster spot is next season. Dude has the size, work ethic, long arms(Harbaalke's favorite), and rare speed for his size. They obviously see something in this kid for them to keep him around.

And look who is right next to him getting close to Locker...TJE.

What excites me as a fan is watching young guys get their shot and take advantage...if Fangio is serious about expanding his rotations...Dial, Dobbs, TJE and Tank will be major players by the end of the year and into next year. It looks like barring injury (of course) this dline is fairly set for the next few years. And not just set...but set with some serious size and talent.

That image shows me that Dial lost his leverage. strait legs, getting stood up by the Oline. not great.

Shows me he was double teamed

This. Hes not going to be perfect but tons of dlinemen stand up right to eye the QB when their double teamed. They look to tip the pass or stop the qb run.

Lock him in the "coop" Jim...
Before we get too excited about the double team, it looks to me like we only rushed 3. Therefore, based on the number of Oline blockers, he was double teamed because of a shear numbers mismatch, not any great play on his part. The NT is double teamed (and winning), Dial is double teamed ( and losing) and the LT is taking his guy straight up.

The NT has also played way more NFL snaps then Dial though, I would guess the end of the Titans game and the Jags game are going to be trying to get him up to speed in real football time.

Good call, if he can maintain his position without getting moved around he'll be an asset.
He oughtta get plenty of reps against Jacksonville, that's closer to his level right now.
You have to keep in mind this guy hasnt played a snap of football since he won the natl championship in jan. Hes going to have to dust the cobwebs off. Ive seen plents if snaps of hin at bama and he def looks tight in this game.

For all we know he was told to take it easy and just eat space.

Its only up for dial unless he digresses but its way to early to draw those conclusions. Hes on the field and hopefully next week so will tank.

Thats encouraging. We need the help.

he was listed as 319

they reported him around 350 like last week tho

Justin Smith looked bigger than him on the sideline.
i also thought he was a bigger, bulkier guy. his upper body and arms are not that muscular.
