Quenton Nelson: The Left Guard YOU Should be Talking About | NFL Films Presents

Recommended Posts

Ballard needs to find 52 more like him.

 

on a side note..... who else was hoping he’d throw that punter headfirst into a trash can?

Last years run was so much more fun than this years weekly stroke waiting to happen. Nothing better than Baldys take on Big Q.

Absolutely love this kid.

 And he is still a kid!  Not even 24 yet.  It's kind of scary how good he could be in a couple of years!

Holy bujeezuz.

 

He'd better buy his momma whatever she wants with his next contract!  She earned it!  :woah:

We need to find a RG just like him.

 

The ship may have already sailed, but I'm hoping we can get a very solid RT and move Smith into RG (I think Smith does fine outside, but think he's a little more natural inside).

 

On a side note: the clips of Q's basketball all-star game were at the gym I went to HS at -- always gotta root for a fellow Jersey Shore guy.

Two of our four were 10lbs 12 ounces. One is 6'9" 350.

Have you seen Smith play RG in the NFL? If not, are you basing this on his collage career? Just curious. Would you risk moving him an unsettling his current status. Being fine might be the best we can hope from him. Surely easier to replace one moving part than shoogle around with two?

I'm sure it's mostly because of how he was discussed coming into the league.   He was a first team all american at RG.   Many had noted that his natural position is guard.   I wouldn't mind him staying at tackle, but he gives the team options.  They can bring in a RG or a RT and be set.

No, I haven't... but he has prototypical size for a G (in fact, he's listed on the team's website as a G).  He has played very well at RT.  What @Myles said, I agree with.  Regardless, I think that just about everyone can agree that Glowinski is the weakest link on our OL (which is a pretty darn good OL).  If we want to take the next step on OL, we need to improve the RG position.  Right now, we don't have a right tackle better than Smith.. that said, if we did bring in another T who was better than Glowinski is at RG and afford the opportunity to move Smith to RG, I think our OL would be significantly improved.

    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking. 
    • Hey....    we’ve all had those whoops moments.    Comes with the territory.    I’ve had some whoppers!
