I'm fine with waiting. Just don't give up like we did with Villaneava. Steelers are reaping the benefits of that

the football gods owe us one. We had two failed defensive players become LTs the past few years in Villanueva and Mihalik.

Why does the FO believe he can block? I understand why he was drafted athletic behemoth but he’ll sit for 2yrs on the PS won’t see a game until they’re ready to use or lose him

I kinda had the same thought. But if you think about it, what else can he do? At that size, you're limited to be a T. If the Eagles think he's just an unmoldeled lump of radioactive clay then I can see why the decision was made. I try not to fall in love with just size dimensions on a player because it really has little to do with his playing acumen. And if I'm being honest, he doesn't look like an NFL T yet. He looks like he's got to get bigger in the upper body. I'm sure he doesn't bench for strength a lot. He's got tree trunks for legs but I'm not sure if that translates well. Tackles need to be more quick than fast. But if they can get him in some conditioning program and get him some technique I'm super intrigued of course. It's a 7th, you can't really expect much but some potential. Which he has in bunches.

The Villanueva one really annoys me seeing as he went to Pitt

It's the 7th round. Might as well throw a hail mary.

Oh yeah exactly. I have zero problem with this at all, even though realistically it probably has like a 5% chance of being a success

Listening to interviews, I guess they must've thought somebody else was going to draft him.

Because it seems like Stoutland was all in on him and met with him all over the place...so chances were good he'd come here as an UDFA.

Dude looks like he could walk up to you and demand your sandwich*. "Mailata hungry, give me sammich!" 

*(It's lunch time and I'm eating a sandwich... if you all were wondering my train of thought on this one.) 

That is all
