    My previous concerns are officially VAPORIZED.

    There is no question that Nate Solder is an extremely talented and athletic Grizzly.

    If Coach Bill believes in this kid, that tells me all I need to know. :cool:

    Add his amazing Size + Athleticism metrics to Coach Bill's ~ and Coach Dante's ~ implicit stamp of approval...and I believe this kid has nothing less than Multiple Pro Bowl Potential.

    By the end of the year, we might have the best O Tackle tandem in the GALAXY.

    I don't know about y'all, but in my book, this pick is a MONSTER Win!! :rocker:

    Solder, really?

    How in the world can you pass up Bowers AND Amukumara, for this guy, he could've very easily been there in the second round. I HATE this pick, I just don't get it at all, he's too much of a project and he doesn't have the mean streak you want from an offensive lineman. Even of they didn't want to take a conversion project like Bowers, Amukumara would've been the much better pick here, I was shocked that he fell as far as he did and thought that he would be picked by the Patriots when he fell all the way to 17. At 17, you should be picking someone who will have an impact this year and Solder just won't get it done. Even if Light doesn't come back, Solder is too raw to start is rookie year on the left OR right side. This is gonna be one of the worst picks they've ever made, because of of who was on the board at the time (Bowers, Amukumara, Jordan) and how raw of a prospect Solder is, he has too much legit bust potential. hopefully Bowers will maybe still be there at 28. SOLDER= BAD PICK.

    If Coach Bill + Coach Dante believe that they can harness this kid's unquestionably VAST potential ~ which has always been the concern with him ~ then so do I. :cool:

    If Scar can turn 5th and 6th rounders into starters I think he can make this kid into a star with his athletism. Look what he did with his 1st and 2nd round grizzlies. Light, Mankins and Vollmer. He is going to be 4-4.

    I didn't see that coming.

    I don't care how big and athletic he is, he plays robotic and his skills are raw.

    Dante will have his hands full with this one. I understand his ceiling is potentially higher than Castonzo's, but how can you pass on him? I think it's a mistake.

    they picked him because:

    1) OT is a need

    2) Colts, Giants, Eagles, who were picking behind the pats, were targeting OTs

    3) DEs are readily available deep into the first round

    Cameron jordan, D'Quan Bowers, Cameron Heyward, Mark Ingram are still available right now.

    All I can say is I'm grateful to have Dante Scar on the coaching staff. If there's one position coach in the league that can do something good with Solder, it's Dante.

    He allowed 5 sacks in 1400 pass attempts in 3 years. Thank God they said "n"o to Costanzo

    Solder is a stud.

    When has BB ever taken the "sexy" pick or the can't miss guy....The lions did that how many years in a row and they always finish where? I love this pick of solder and love how BB knows it starts with the lines and continues to replenish them.....ANother thing is who knows how healthy Ty Warren is and he could be farther along then we know and maybe that's why BB is passing on the D-lineman....This is a GREAT PICK!!!! Protect your multi million dollar investment first and foremost because we aren't winning anything without brady on the field....

    Nobody knows.

    Jordan fell all the way to New Orleans? Taken after Clayboyn and Taylor? We didn't want him. Time to wonder why, the answer will come soon.

    They probably have a guy like Jarvis Jenkins set up for tommorow. Maybe Wilkerson at 28 or 33.

    Jordan was never a fit for us.

    I love the guy, but I never had him on my Board.

    I really like Cameron Heyward, but I'd rather see us target Jarvis Jenkins later on, as I think he's 100% as good.

    Trade DOWN, baby.

    Trade OUT. :cool:

    the pats have a solid grasp on drafting OL's......if they see something in Solder, then its there.

    'WTF' was the sentiment on the vollmer pick.

    the only disappointment is that they let Ted Larsen go last year......if they kept him, the pats would be set at OG....but the choice was obviously a good one when it was made

    That's an impressive stat. I didn't know about that.

    But didn't he give up two to Cal's Cameron Jordan in one game? He'll be facing a lot more guys like that, now.

    Here's a still shot of that:

    Watch the clip of Quinn destroying Costanzo the whole game. These guys have bad days. Before this draft I didn't have either one as first round material. If I had to take any one of them though it would be Solder. I like him better than T. Smith. Ceiling or not.

    I really don't get the way this team thinks sometimes when they're drafting, They just traded pick 28 to New Orleans, why? You got Wilkerson, Heyward, Ingram and Da'Quan FREAKIN Bowers still on the board and you feel that all of those players are no good and won't make an impact? Now when the Jets pick up one of these guys we can see how bad the patriots screwed up for the next 10 years.

    Vollmer was second team All Pro this year in only his second season. If this kid pans out we'll have couple of 6'8" monster tackles for years to come.

    Soldiers problems are fixable, especially with dante working with him. Tackles are sealed for the next 6 years. We have 3 next round and 2 after that + 2 firsts as of right now in 2012 and free agency/trades haven't even started.
