    Yea this guy is a beast but from what I've heard he has poor technique. He should be an interesting player to watch during TC.

    Looks like a big ... very big dude moving around ... whatever.

    When I see him smacking someone 10 yards upfield I'll be :):):)

    You can teach technique and technicals. What you cant teach is size, strength, speed and smarts

    I think he does look bigger than either of those two, He also looks like he has plenty of room to add muscle, hes very lean.

    Actually I was thinking that the first step looks a little slow to get initiated. He seems quick enough once he gets going, but there seems to be a bit of a delay in getting his first step moving.

    He's got really quick feet. His hands look.... off. I wonder if he has an issue with his vision... perhaps Amblyopia (lazy eye).

    Actually I liked his quick feet and athletism. What I noticed was that he needs to get more bend in his knees when he explode to contact and when he runs, he's too upright. Granted when you are 6'8 or so, you tend to be more "upright" than most folks. ;)

    6'8, 300+, 37.5 vert??? What!?!? The more i find out about this guy the more I like him. Its like hes the pats version of big baby(6'9, 290).
    I think that 37.5 vert # should ease those concerned about his back. There's no way he could explode like that if his core(hips, abs, lower back) was weak in any way, especially not at that weight

    He is very big and he is very athletic. He also has quick feet.
    He does need to work on his speed and explosion on his initial move from the 3 pt stance but the technique can be refined.
    And I'm sure after a season of the Pats strength and conditioning program, he'll be even stronger.
    Hard to tell where he'll end up. He's not as polished and ready as say Matt Light coming out, but he's got a ton of potential and physical traits that can't be taught.

    BTW . . . is it just me, or would this tape have greatly benefited from some narration, so it didn't look like an audition tape for "NFL Big Man Dance Challenge"? :confused:

    Indeed. Not so much "rushing" the passer as ambling in his direction. Still, someone's got to stay at home to stop the run.

    On Basti (my 2 pfennigs). He seemed to me to want to come completely up out of his stance before getting moving instead of exploding out like a sprinter. That may be because a guy that huge can't be so supple or it may be an easily corrected piece of technique.

    Well, since your big boy you were talking about is an Offensive Linemate of Vollmer's, I'm sure whichever team he plays for wants him starting the run, but I can't remember who drafted/signed him off the top of my head so you may be right if it was someone like Oakland... :D
