    I give you a hard time, especially over Dak and Wentz but honestly you do have knowledge on the game and the players. Doesn't mean you're always right though haha

    Maybe in the middle of the back
    He doesn't have the arms strength to hit the helment

    He's a good powerful run blocker but today's de's are smaller quick guys and that's gonna be his problem I think
    If he could get his technique down to an art he might be able to do it
    He played some guard too
    He has a Columbo attitude

    One thing has come out from the weekend. The 3 all pro lineman and Colombo have taken Skipper under their
    wing and he's going to get an advanced RT education over the next 4 months. It will be up to him to see if he
    can master the position.

    He started the last 47 consecutive games of his career at Arkansas, beginning as a true freshman: 26 at LT, 13 at RT, and 8 at guard.
    He blocked 7 field goal attempts during that time, including the one that allowed them to beat TCU last year.

    In the offseason, Dan has worked part time as a bouncer at live music venues.

    He was a stalwart at blocking for the Razorbacks running game.

    If he survives the final cuts, maybe he could do the same for us.

    If it does not work out at OL, try him at DE. Just waving his arms would block off at least a third of the field from the QB being able to throw to.

    David Irving still has more reach than Skipper due to his incredible arm length.

    Skipper 6'9-1/2", Arm 33"

    Irving 6'7", Arm 38"

    Nice Game of Thrones reference......if that's what you meant.

    He is a Mountain of a man, only problem I have with him is his feet. He always has had a problem with his feet against a speed rusher on the outside, probably why they are trying him out at guard. He's not a guard, he's most likely a RT, which is where they are trying him out right now.

    He didn't get drafted cause of the tape. I would like to see him on the practice squad and let him work out some of his obvious issues.

    I see no way he gets enough bend to be an effective blocker but it will fun to see him try.
