Tyre Phillips at guard was scoring in the 30s by PFF before playing somewhat more capable at RT and finishing the year with his paltry 47.1, yet in his worst season Zeitler scored 20 points higher in their metrics. At LG we already know what we’re getting from some of our talent. Mekari was in the Bozeman sphere at RG. Ben Powers was mediocre to average, but not anywhere near Phillips level bad. Phillips himself should ideally be better by virtue of experience. This is all not even considering what potential might be gleaned from Ben Cleveland. There isn’t truly a logical reason to assume the IOL won’t be an improvement over last years considering the investments and development potential. I can see the more pessimistic outlook for the OT spots where AV is transitioning to the opposite side for the first time in his career and is aging out, while Stanley isn’t healthy, and the other best options will be mixing in with the IOL competitions. Eh, disagree on a few points. I don’t believe Mekari is in the Bozeman sphere tbh. I think Bozeman was underrated at LG so I won’t be surprised at all if on the whole whichever Ben wins the LG job gives us a lower level of play there...Powers was less than mediocre at RG in the playoffs and Cleveland is a 3rd round rookie. I don’t think it’s a huge leap in logic to think LG could represent a downgrade from Bozeman. C should be an upgrade, I agree. And again, RG with Zeitler as an improvement is banking on him staying healthy the whole year and not continuing to decline as he started last year. So far he hasn’t even shown he can do the former.
