I can't find very much information about this kid at all. Most scouting sites have him rated as an UDFA.

If you guys can get any information about him, post it here.

I know nothing about this guy. I like the position addressed. Just have to trust FO on this one.

Not what I was thinking they'd do that's for sure. Houston would smoke him 1-on-1 for sure

Also found this:

Has BP and 40 time on it along with other measurements

Seems like he has good athletic ability and size is pretty good. Strength and getting used power of the NFL will be his weakness I'm guessing.

I just hate it because there were still players on the board who would not only make the team but be able to see the field and make plays for us. This guy will not.

Okay, so I found a couple videos on him:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltfGu3UCL3o

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z245V1ei50s

Watching those, as small of a sampling as it is, I at least feel like I have a better idea of who he is as a player.

He's athletic, but his foot speed is a little sluggish. He gets into his stance quickly after the snap and plays with a lot of leg drive mainly. He's not weak, but also isn't a physically dominating lineman. He's a wide-bodied type of guy who should be able to anchor against most defensive lineman, but might struggle against some of the quicker defensive lineman out there.

My take? He's a good developmental prospect from a small school who, in the very least, gives us more depth at center than we had before his selection. It's a pretty "meh" pick for me, personally, now that I know a little more about him.

I'm calling it, this guy will light it up whenever he plays Denver.

Surprised there aren't more jokes in this thread.

When was the last time Reid drafted a lineman that wasn't at least good depth? While I was really hoping for a safety here, we needed depth along the interior.

Questionable pick to say the least, but I keep going back to the Green Bay drafts of the past. Their drafts aren't drafts that experts say "oh man GB just won the draft with these selections", but rather solid drafts with a few unknowns that in a few years people are saying I have no idea where that guy came from. Hopefully Kush is in the same mold.

This kid epitomizes the type of team Dorsey/Reid want us to become. He's a long-haired, tattooed, smart, physical center who loves Metallica, shooting guns, hunting and hitting people. He's enjoys pain. He plays hurt, wants to work and won't be denied his spot on the team.

But most of all, he's smart. And that's what we need.
