The "weigh-ins" are different day than the athletic drills. Guys are notorious for putting on water-weight before the scale. He played in the 290's during the season, at least that's what MJ said...


And it was not an issue was it? If he played in the 290's that is fine. Why is there such a fascination around having to be 310 to play tackle?


Specifically for Potter? Run-blocking...


He is never going to be a drive blocer in the running game, but then again neither is Duane Brown or Ryan Clady. Potter has athleticism and technique on his side to help create lanes in the running game.

Brown & Clady are 315+ and elite pass-protecters. Can't bull-rush them.

Nate Potter anchors well too. Sets his feet, sits down and anchors.

21 Pass, 1 v1 with what looks like #93 (unsure), start to get bull rushed early, but then anchors and stops the pass rush in its tracks, pass complete to Housler


Quote:
32 Pass, playaction, 1 v 1 with #96. Potter anchors well, and does not allow the bull rush to gain much ground. Pass complete to Roberts for a first down.


Quote:
4 Pass, 1 v 1 with #93. Begins to get bull rushed then anchors and holds ground very well. Pass incomplete to Roberts

I always thought massie would make a terrific RG.

Size, strength, nasty etc

Putting someone outside him (Fluker ?) and then moving him in, not necessarily a bad idea.


That's not a bad idea although personally, I'd flip-flop that. I'd keep Massie outside and move Fluker inside. Fluker could be a nasty RG.


I've thought that myself - Fluker's measureables remind me of Carl Nicks.

That is a fair assessment

Hope he lands here and is like Nicks.
