"He was back to a 1 p.m. kickoff for the first time in a couple of weeks, and he predictably rebounded."
Yeah... you don't get to say "predictably," Walt. You predicted the Bengals to flail again. You predicted the Rams to cover the seven. You predicted Dalton's "late-season swoon" to continue. You were dead wrong, and you can't even admit it.
Summary: Bulaga has very good intangibles and I don't see much bust in him though the Robert Gallery comparisons are inevitable. There is a lot to like about Bulaga, but he doesn't have the amazing size of a Jake Long or elite athletic ability of a D'Brickashaw Ferugson to go in the top four picks. Bulaga will play very early on in his career and I expect him to come off the board between Picks 5 and 14. If Bulaga doesn't pan out at left tackle, he will be an All-Pro right tackle.
Player Comparison: Jake Long. Bulaga doesn't have Long's arm length or height, but they are comparable athletically and play with great technique. I love the physicality they bring to the table.
