    Basically guaranteeing the overweight injury prone RG $8.8M in 2017.

    I feel like I've been 50/50 on Telesco, critical but not unreasonably so like others around here. But this is another gust of wind pushing me towards the cliff side of this fence.

    Its crazy that fluker has been in the league 3 years now and I still cant make up my mind if hes a bust or not. I still have hope that he can be a very good guard (even though it took the staff 2 years to shift him in to guard SMH)

    The fact that he ballooned up to around 350-360 pounds has me leaning bust, I feel like it shows a lack of commitment to his trade, and really a lack of respect for the game.

    Tunsil, Whitehair, and Martin....1, 2, 3. Do it.

    The weirdest part about him not being able to control his weight is everything I hear about him is that hes a football junkie and really cares and wants to be good. very odd for some one with "good football character" to turn into an eddie lacey

    I think a lot of it with these boys from Bama is that their strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran is very involved and a strong personality, always keeping them on track.

    Once they leave that regimented system and go off to the NFL, they don't have that structure and discipline imposed on them. Trent Richardson, Lacy, Fluker just to name some who seemingly have struggled with weight since leaving Alabama.

    One would think in th nfl everyone would have nutritionist and personal chefs, controlling their calories. I know I would, my diet would be a science
