He came back and looked pretty good for a guy coming back at the end of his rookie season off a major injury. We'll have to see how he does next year.
    Jeff Saturday raised a good point and said that O-line might be the hardest position to draft because you can't predict what a player's pain threshold will be until their 3-4 year in the NFL.

    Someone mentioned Solder and he went on and said "well he wasn't blocking since he was 11 years old, his body doesn't have the nerve damage or incoming arthritis that most of these guys already have by the time they are in the draft"

    Joeckel came from a more complex offense as well.

    The "Boom" of Fisher is Nate Solder.
    The "Boom" of Joeckel is Boselli.


    It seems like JAX is in place to trade their no.1 in 2014 and swap picks for KC's no.1 overall. MIGHT hinge on Albert getting traded for a no.2.
    That is downright absurd.

Elite athleticism, ability to completely shut down speed and bull rushers, and the mean streak and edge to dominate in the running game. That's the upside here. Nate Solder...?
    Bingo. I read Nate Solder and thought -- is that valid? Thinking if you're comparing draftable entities then no way.
