Our starting right guard was injured and his replacement had a historically poor performance according to Pro Football Focus, along with just a bad performance overall by the rest of the line. Bruce Arians will get them back in shape; This is the exception, not the rule.
Yesterdays results: College B ball: KY -12 (teased) Pushes, which is a Loss in large teaser play at my House. Sure would have been nice to know that the Wildcats best player was sitting this one out (hurt elbow).........ARGG. NBA: Golden State gets pushed hard at Denver, but Curry and Co. still prevail by three which is enough for a second spot win (GST at Pick) in an ongoing teaser. NHL: Rangers still look a little stale (for whatever reason) but prevail 4 to 3 last night to get my hockey par off to a good start. Congrats to winners and back later with some picks.
Summary: Nate Solder is cashing in on a poor class of tackles. He has room to grow and develop as a dominant NFL tackle. His journey began as a blocking tight end and he has already added about 70 pounds in his years at Boulder. He will need to add more and has to overcome the challenges his height presents when it comes to knee bending and getting beaten inside.
Player Comparison: Tony Boselli. Mike Mayock drew this comparison while covering the Senior Bowl so let's go with it. Assuming Solder can continue bulking up, he certainly has the potential to be the dominant force Boselli was with the Jaguars before injuries derailed his career.
