    He has worlds of potential, the only question i have is whether we want that right tackle upgrade now. I don't think he can play LT in the pros

    would he be an upgrade at RT? If so, he would add depth because he can play guard as well.

    This kid is a great prospect, could play RT no doubt. If he's there ag 28, it'd be hard to pass on him

    Apparently he's a much better guard than a tackle.

    He's a mauler at guard, but he really struggled when they moved him to either tackle in Senior Bowl practice. In fact, he looked much better at LG than RG. And even though he's very good, he can tend to get over-extended & result to holding vs. getting a good initial pop. Fortunately for him that's very coachable.

    If we didn't have more pressing needs & he was the BPA at 28, then maybe. I think it's more important that we address the defensive side of the ball first. I see him going to someone like Pittsburgh. He'll fit in well with their mentality & their OL certainly needs the help.
