Pro Bowl Player
While the 4.64 is fine, my guess is that the 1.76 10 yd split is glaring and scaring people away. He was dealing with a foot injury, so I hope people took that into account. Cole Strange's 10yd split was 1.71. 31.5" VJ and 9'8" Broad are poor. On paper he's worse than Slade - at least his 10yd split was 1.52 (same as Edelman). Does this mean he can't be a great player? Of course not (just looking at highlights), but I'm hoping he gets an opportunity despite all his medical setbacks (spinal thing - foot surgery recently).Honestly Justyn Ross if he was healthy and had a proper QB play, he'd be top 64 pick. If his medicals have checked out, i have no idea why he wasn't drafted.
I couldn't care less about who ends up being the left guard as long as he's better than Karras. I care not at all about claims of opportunity cost loss when drafting, I care that the team improves.And we leave with one overarching hope and that is that Chasen Hines dies NOT beat out Coke Strange for starting RG!!
Their real problem is that they forget that drafting is a means to the end of winning, and think drafting well is more important than winning Lombardis.Those people may have been watching the Patriots draft lately. If they have been, it would certainly be understandable that they might think they could draft better than that 6x sb winning coach.
