Apparently it was a better idea than trying to turn him into an OT from a TE, which was his natural position.

Quality young depth that has a niche and can contribute right now in many packages.

Kellen Davis was a pathetic pass blocker and was responsible for a ton of pressure and sacks.

The hope is this guy can stay in and block and allow Bennett to run free down the seam.

A 3rd OT on passing downs.

If he can handle a DE 1 on 1 from time to time it can really allow you to do some nice things in protection.

You can slide to blitzes, double a dominant 3 technique and allow you OTs to tee off on a DE.
How amazing will it be to have the play in with plenty of time to adjust to a blitz? I think we see more big plays from Forte now.
