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

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!

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.

    • It is still too early predict but I hate to say as of now I have it: Cards 90-72 Brewers 88-74 Cubs 82-80 Reds 81-81 Pirates 73-89 -Cubs need to find a way to keep Bryant, Rizzo, Baez, and Contreras and add an Ace pitcher somehow, otherwise we will be around .500 IMO. We already lost Hamels. I still see the Cards being the best in the division. I picked them to win the division even last season if you guys remember. To me the Cubs were better on paper on last season.
    • It seems more logical right now that one could trade back in the 2nd rd to get Fromm.  
    • I get that, but I don't think getting a blue chip prospect with player comps to Marvin Harrison is something I'd get upset about.  I also won't lose my mind if we end up sticking with Jacoby for the next year.  This is the first chance/offseason Ballard's had since the Luck retirement.  Expecting or demanding that he fix it now, or else, seems unfair to me.  I'd definitely like an upgrade, and I'd be just fine and happy if we grabbed Love in this situation (or traded back up into the first for him).  But to get Jeudy at #13 is a steal and I just find it hard to fault Ballard for jumping on that chance, if this were to happen.  We might not get the most out of him with Jacoby slinging it this year, but who says you have to take a QB before a WR?  As long as the team gets built with good/great, quality players, I'm going to be ok with it.  Just my view on it, though.  
    • My worry is that without the QB who can efficiently run this offense and distribute the ball to the receivers, it doesn't matter if you get TY Hilton or prime Jerry Rice or Jerry Jeudy to line up wide.    I would LOVE having Jerry Jeudy on this team. But what I would love even more is if we had a QB we could rely on to consistently find him. What's the point of having open receivers when the QB won't throw the ball or will bullet it over their heads? The only thing that will happen is we will get even more annoyed with the lack of offensive production.    In the absolute ideal case, IMO - teams would be lower on Jordan Love because of how raw he is and we will be able to get him with the second pick, rather than the #13 pick, thus allowing us to get a talent like Jeudy in the 1st. Unfortunately, I kind of doubt both that Jeudy lasts til 13 and that Love lasts until the end of the 1s-early 2nd.
