One the one hand, he could have been overly reliant on his physical tools in college and had success. Going undrafted and then being put in the PS could have been a wake-up call. Some of his issues could simply be related to poor conditioning and strength. If he develops into a swing tackle it would be a win. Eventual starter-an even bigger win On the other hand, he may not stick on an NFL roster because, despite his physical tools, his technique and mastery of the mental part of the game don't develop enough to warrant keeping him in the roster but will stick around for a while based on his physical traits. Cornelius Lucas has managed to carve out a relatively long career even though he isn't a world-beater. It wouldn't be a reach to see him step into the 3rd tackle/Swing Tackle role. Being in our OL-Room and dealing with our O-Linemen should provide a big catalyst for his development. It wouldn't be a complete reach to move into the swing OT role but there are a lot of big guys with better technique and athleticism that likely will surpass him. He is raw, and still only has like 5 years of playing football under his belt so he could improve his technique and get there but I would not ignore it in the draft in hopes he does unless he has shown a lot of growth on the PS this year. Its just rare to hit on UDFAs as more than a couple year filler role so playing the percentages, I would not count on it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
