Baker was absoultely awful at anchoring double teams. 

That's not what he does. McDonald sucked at it when he asked him to do it too.

Yeah he is a penetrator type DT but we thought he could play the NT. Boy was I wrong, weight means nothing in regards to style of play.

Wow, if that doesnt get you fired up reading the whole piece by Steve White, something isnt right.  On a side note, I hope White gets picked up by one of the major networks, Ive been a big fan of his work for years.

Will Vita Vea be missing camps with us? I know that the NFL has the rule where they can’t participate until graduation. I remember ASJ missing time and Inalso believe Benenoch did as well.

In response to whether or not Vea will be at camp.

Well that settles that then awesome! I’m glad Vea will be here and not have to miss any time.

Interesting read. I really hope we didn't knock James down because he chose not to workout at the Pro-Day and stand on his combine numbers. That's asanine if so.

Can't fault a guy for going through the testing once, passing with flying colors and then standing on that to avoid injury/protect his career.

It doesn't sound like that was it. I almost wonder if we'd have taken James if we had to stay at seven. Like the article says, once we traded back, we were able to go BPA.

Wanna see the most ridiculous thing you'll ever read?

"In 2016, we're playing USC in Husky Stadium, and he chased after a screen," Washington defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake said of Vea. "We have those Catapult trackers, and he ran 20 miles an hour on our charts, which is very impressive for a guy who's 340 pounds, obviously. That was one of many episodes where I saw 'Hey, this guy's a freak athlete.' "

To put 20 mph in perspective on a football field (and like 40 times, everybody's got a little different reading): The NFL times everything now, and the single-fastest time they recorded of any ballcarrier during the 2017 NFL season was Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, at 22.05 mph. And Vea is roughly 120 pounds heavier.

I think in the end after the Big 3, Vea and James were the next group.  I have zero issue with the philosophy of building from the lines out.  Right or wrong, I think James across the league is viewed as a SS.
