    He's 6'8" and isn't the only guy on the team that tall. But yeah, very big boy, for sure.

    He was the biggest dude on the field today, and by far. He was also clearly the most athletic lineman. Some of his work on the screens was downright scary.

    I hope he can break Joey Porter in half if he sees some playing time for Light this season. By the looks of him, he's well capable of it. :D

    If he is as good as a lot of people think he is, whose PT will he be chipping away at?

    Considering how flexible he seems regarding placement on the line, it probably depends on who they're playing that Sunday. Options, options...

    Maybe BB will use him as a fullback like they did with hochstein.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Vollner becomes better than some (perhaps all) of the 1st round tackles in the draft. Seabass ended his college career on a high note and has tremendous upside.

    Yeah, he's slowly becoming my binky as well. Keep in mind that this is coming from a guy that very rarely if ever (I can't remember the last time I actually had one) labels anyone on the Pats as his "binky".

    Well, that's your fault. ;) After all, you don't choose binkies, binkies choose you. :)

    You sure got that right. :D

    Seabass wasn't my binky, but it sounds like he could be a real find, and one of the steals of the draft.

    That might have been in jest. If a real suggestion, that's not really what you want.

    A fullback needs to get low and power through a hole. At 6-8, Sea Bass' height would be a bit of a detriment in this role.

    Further, the Pats have had several injuries to linemen trying to play short yardage FB - most notably Seymour, but also Klecko. You are taking a risk placing a linemen in that role.

    At outside tackle, either left or right, that wingspan is very valuable in driving the rusher wide.

    Seymour is 6'6" and was, of course, used as a fullback. Just 2 inches difference. But yeah, no injuries to important lineman playing out of position, please.

    I usually tune out during the offseason and barely pay attention during the preseason, so I knew Vollmer by name only and that he was "big". This is the first pic I've seen of him.

    Good God, he's *huge*.

    Regards,
    Chris

    He IS. Saw him up close Monday. There's a video on the net showing his pre-draft workout. What's amazing is that he is well built, has no OL gut and is agile as hell.

    The "overdrafting" of Vollmer shows why drafting the best player for your scheme is so much more important than drafting guys being talked up by talking heads like Mel Diaper Jr. and Adam Shefless. I thank Robert Kraft for spending his dollars on real scouting as opposed to the NFL scouting dept.

    Vollmer comes from a pass happy college that ran a zone blocking scheme and he excelled in that scheme. Add in the decent feet and above average size/height and he fits perfectly with the Pats.

    As a second rounder he fits our scheme so much better than an Oher or a few of the other 1st round OT's.

    True, I've read from PFW that he struggles in 1 on 1 blocking, but that his zone blocking skills are way up there. Once he rounds out his talents, all accounts seem to think he'll be very good.
