This is the stuff you don't hear about.. "Tampa is in the NFC Title game because of Tom!" "He didn't have training camp to get used to his new role with new team-mates".. "All pro Antonio Brown coming in mid season threw the offense off"
Uhhhhhhhmmmm, what did every team miss?
How can you be scooped up ASAP as a tackle, when you are the first OL taken in the draft. Did you forget he was taken 6th overall, No OL anything was taken before him.
Did you also forget that most teams that spoke to him at the combine asked him if he were willing to play tackle?
How about the fact that in college he came in as a LT, with an All Pro LT and 1st rounder already at the position (Stanley), so he started at LG, and then another 1st rounder (McGlentchey) took over LT because they didn't want to move Nelson.
And when he got to Indy, the only position on the OL that was already firm, was LT (Castonzo)... So it's not shocking Indy didn't play him there... We had a huge hole at LG and RT.
Will this be the first draft in the CB era (sans 2017) where we didn't come into the draft with multiple 2nd and 3rd round picks created from previous drafts? It all feels so strange. I'm gonna check my driver's license to see if it is still me.
