    You don't have to take my word. Go back and check training camp reports. Any talent he has does not show up due to his lack of strength. A project if there ever was one.

    Talent is more than quick feet. He doesn't have it.

    Arkin sucks.

    He may not make it in the NFL. Most project players don't. If he fails, strength will be the main reason. Quick feet is not the only thing going for him, but none of it can show without power.

    He's not talented. That's his issue.


    The cowboys cut him and brought up Leary when someone was about to sign him. That tells you all you need to know about his talent.

    Do you have a link where Arkin was cut? Must have missed it.

    David Arkin was never cut. He has been inactive every game of his career despite the fact that he was never injured.

    He sucks.

    Yeah I don't know what I was thinking. I could have sworn he was one of the guys we were gorced to cut late in the season to sign a lb or something, but that we had got him to the practice squad.

    I have been trying to forget last season... I guess its working.

    IIRC he has never been cut. There is a reason. I am not defending his play. His play does suck, but there is a reason for it. My guess is that they are hoping he works and gets stronger. I have my doubts if he ever does.

    I was shocked to find out that he was 25 years old.

    guess what

    as we found out this last year or so Woicik cannot wave a magic wand.

    There are numerous examples of players that supposedly could get stronger easily and never did.

    Everyone has a limit.

    And most major college weight training programs are not that far below the NFL.

    Anyone expecting miracles is badly misinformed.

    Not really much of a comparison:

    strength is strength whether you go to Alabama or Acorn State. If you do not have it you do not have it.

    Arkin looks like a skinny frat boy with a gut in that photo
