Oh. Hell. Yes!

I wanted him in a star ever since his freshman year at Arkansas. Dude plays mean. Like, really [inappropriate/removed] mean. He's kinda slow footed, but I was shocked he didn't get drafted. I'm fully on board the Skipper train for the RT spot.

I like him because he's cut from the same Brett Bielema mold of mean, bulldozing offensive linemen. Yes, he's a little slow footed, but his size and level of "mean" make me drool.


My God. Six-Foot-Ten?

Skipper would be a huge boost if he pans out. I hope it happens, but am skeptical. Size is great, but he is maybe too big. I suspect most he faces will be 5-7 inches shorter and have the immediate "low man" advantage. I can see issues with guys be able to use that to get under him.

Yup. Here he is blocking a middle schooler (or some random defensive back, idk)

He was really upset he didn't get drafted. Probably for the best to take a few days and cool off.

He has a chance to go somewhere and compete for a starting job. Or pick a place to develop.

Just blocking FG attempts makes him valuable !!

Skipper is a good run mauler but he really struggled at times against speedy pass rushers. Of course when you face Myles Garrett, Carl Lawson, Jonathan Allen, Arden Key and Charles Harris in the same season a lot of people would.

He's probably not athletic enough for tackle so I think his best position in the NFL is guard, but at 6'10 it's hard to put him there so he's a bit of a tweener. Probably why he wasn't drafted. But he can be a solid backup that can block the occasional field goal. He played nearly every position but center in college and started 4 years in the SEC so he has a ton of experience doing a lot of different things.
