Right from when he was drafted and I began to watch more video of Vollmer, it seemed to me that a guy that big, who moved that well, had some decent potential - he even looked like someone who might be better able to handle a speed rusher better than Light. Now with Vollmer getting a good amount of time at LT in practice, I'm wondering if that's exactly the role we might see Vollmer in. Light obviously has trouble with speed rushers but that's not an every game issue... just a few times each season and even then, not on every down. Belichick I'd think tends not to want to throw too much at rookies - so I can't help but wonder if he's being looked at as a pass rushing specialist this year, focusing on that aspect of the game, while Light will continue in his role as the primary LT. Regardless, it seems obvious that the team has hopes for Vollmer at LT whether its in a specialst role or eventually full time. When LTs lose a step it really shows, and you always have to be planning ahead for that day when you've got a valuable commodity at QB to protect.
