Intelligent kid.

This can turn into a nice pick. Banks backup.

Top 20 RAS out of the 1000 or so guards since the 80s.

would be cool to see who the other 20 guards are ahead of him.

Steve Hutchinson and Kyle Long are two of his comps athletically.... and then 2 I havent heard of lol

I hope he takes Brunskill's job as the right guard. Actually I don't care who it is, as long as Brunskill is the backup T for both spots. That is the only time he's ever excelled in pass protection and as a lineman. Playing tackle in 2019

Other then Drake, probably most excited about this kid. I think he can develop into a solid guard if not a pro bowler some day.

Really? I'm curious why. Dude got whooped all week at the Senior Bowl, embarrassing at times
Looks like the scoutning office has been eyeing him for awhile maybe he could be the center of the future?

I'd be more worried if he was coming out of Oklahoma or LSU or some other big program. My guess is that a pro level training program and coaching could help him out a lot. Enough to make him a starter or quality backup? I dunno. But there's a lot of opportunity for growth.

True. His RAS is ridiculous and he's a smart kid already with his masters degree. That late in the draft, that's what you throw darts at IMO although my darts would've went another direction lol

Its the old Shanahan approach. Mike would land on OL late in drafts, guys that had good athleticism for their size plus high level football IQ and then coach them up. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't but when it did, he wound up with guys who played in a ton of games despite having been 6th or 7th round picks.

Small school player doing a position change at the senior bowl is a tough ask. They talked about how he improved throughout the week. Take a shot and see what he can do with coaching.
