Read on twitter that a scout was noted as saying that he projects out as a center and could has the skills to stay there for a LONG time. My thinking is they bring him in and see how he does. Move Litch back to LG, have Gettis or Lavao & cut Chester ($2.5+M savings). All this is pending if Long can play Center.

Friday was good. Bob's got to be happy.

Trent Williams said in an interview here that Kory is going to play Center. So I doubt a rookie will bump him out of that role. But, we will see. There are a lot of very large men who will be honking around for those jobs--which is a good thing.

Huge fan of the Moses pick. Not a big fan of the other two, particularly Spencer Long. Seemed like a big reach there. Very reminiscent of the LeRebius pick which hasn't worked out for us at all.

Actually I am okay with Long. Leribeus became what he was in college...a talented guy with weight problems. His issues here have been exactly the same. We took a risk that he'd come in and turn into more of a dedicated workout guy. He didn't yet.

Long was projected to go higher in the draft, but got injured. So we took more a health risk than a risk on intangibles/development/work ethic. I'm more comfortable with that personally.

I doubt if Gettis makes the roster. Kind of light for OG.
