    Reily Reiff Article

    http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolph...u-kidding.html

    Not so much about what Armando is saying, but I just watched the tape on him [in the article] and was gobsmacked... his pass pro is poor.

    - no kick step...
    - leans back in his hips to get the kick step going... gets no width/depth at all, no slide step to keep his balance
    - over reaches really badly to a wide rush
    - not crisp in his footwork
    - power step to the inside move is not good..
    - plays very tall.. surprising for an Iowa OL.
    - just don't see the athleticism for an OT in the pro's... no matter the side.


    can see why some consider him a guard, but for me he's a Nate Garner type inside player.. wouldn't consider him whatsoever in the first.. or second for that matter.

    Thoughts/arguments against, by all means... fire away.

    The only OL worth taking that high is DeCastro.

    I listened to some of finsiders and they had on an announcer for Iowa football on he said that most all OL from Iowa are a bit behind in pass blocking when turning pro but they dont take long in fixing what needs fixing. In other words, Its the program. But the program produces good ones. I wouldnt put much into this.

    Reiff wouldnt be ranked where he is as an OL if he werent good. He is nasty and a very sound guy who plays LT but will start at RT. Bottom line. If we dont draft Reiff I dont have a problem with that, but you better draft one soon after or the good ones gone. Cordy Glenn is guy I could love at 41 but dont think he will last that long.

    I don't think this guy is worth the 8th overall pick....more like the 20th pick at best.

    exactly, I compared him to yanda, and I think yanda went 23.

    I would think that there is no chance we'd go with a RT at 8 overal... more and more I am thinking it's a defensive guy, unless richardson or blackmon fall.

    No way we go RT at #8. Even if we get Manning. DE all the way....Ingram.

    If we go O-line, I would prefer Decastro. Not 100% sold on Reiff either...

    Are people who are not sold on Reiff not sold becuase others are telling you they arent sold or are you looking at Reiff on video and being objective?

    I hope people do not put stock in the combine. Because I read he did....and then I just laugh. running around in shorts does not tell you what kind of football player you are.
