    Diehl is losing his athleticism. He's not the same David Diehl anymore, he's getting old too after all. If you go back and watch him play LG in our PS games, he actually wasn't that impressive, bc he can't swing out on sweeps like he used to.

    Petrus is more athletic than him. He showed a lot in the run game, and was improving as a pass protector. I think we have a future PBer in the making with Petrus, he just needs reps to work on his craft.

    I like Diehl at RT and Petrus at LG bc I think that puts our best starting 5 on the field. Diehl may have lost a step, but he's still better than McKenzie. And I think the Petrus/Diehl combo is better than the Diehl/McKenzie combo.

    But to be fair, most are higher on McKenzie on here than I am.

    • I really don't like Beatty at LT but let's hope he proves us wrong. Petrus looked very good in limited action and I think he's the future LG.

      Smith might start off on the PUP list BBD.

      • Let's not forget, Petrus was supposed to be a developmental guy. He was raw coming in. If he looked that good last year, just imagine how good he can be now with more reps and a year of NFL lifting under his belt?

        If Smith is on PUP, that means he misses the first 6 games right?

          Not always. You can pull someone off PUP earlier. However you have 6 games before you are forced to decide to activate him or end his season. It just buys you another roster spot.

          • Beatty at LT is pretty scary. If he can just find consistency I'm confident he could be a great LT, but that's the big key with him. Hopefully this year he comes in knowing what is expected of him and does well. We really need him to step in at LT and succeed.

            • If he didn't pack on weight this year, I'm gonna be very disappointed.

              In fact, if I don't see a bigger Beatty in camp, I'm fully expecting him to be a dud again.

              He needs to get bigger.

              • If we don't re-sign Smith and instead sign Plax I'm going to be livid.

                • Beatty needs to get bigger and he needs to play with that angriness that OL need. Beatty seems too finesse out there.

                    Agreed. Plax never really knew the system well and was a constant malcontent. We need Steve Smith. He's the only guy Eli can have 100% certainty to be in the right spot at the right time.

                    • There's less than a 1% chance that happens.

                      Smith is coming back 1 way or another. Either with a 1 year contract or a long term deal. He's not leaving the building, I'd bet the mortgage on that.

                        That won't change. Beatty was always finesse. He was finesse in college. You can't change a leopard's stripes. To be fair though, he's not too finesse. He does have a little bit of a mean streak on him, just not as much as what we're used to, bc our oline has always been built on run blocking and he's a pass protector not a run blocker.

                        It's acceptable at LT as long as he can pass protect. But if he keeps getting bullrushed bc he's the size of a big TE, there's no point in continuing this project with him.


                        I'm concerned about Sintim too. I think this is a make or break year for him.

                        • I loved the Sintim pick and I'm known as one of the patient ones around here but I totally agree. Sintim needs to show something this year otherwise I hope he becomes a cut.

                          • Am I the only one who thinks they could move Sintim to end and move Osi for another LB?

                                Wasn't he the best blocking FB in the draft? If so, pretty good I'd say.
