I’d say no.
we have plenty of guys who can replace Fred and be more than serviceable... to trade up for him when there were still S and other Dline on the board seemed a bit “reachy” at that point
Here to proving me wrong like Fred did on his draft night when i made a donkey of myself swearing the pick all night long
Looney is a backup. This kid is real starting center.So you have the 5th round pick Badasz as your starting center? I would pencil in Looney as my starting C in your scenario with Badasz as the potential backup. Maybe they felt since Williams can backup both G and C they went ahead and pulled the trigger on Badasz.
Ppl dont realize that you cant have top paid high draft picks across the line. You need someone to play up. Another thing they dont realize is our 90s line was filled with mostly 4th round and later guys
yup i would say hes ok in pass protection and needs to work on that part of his game. But his run blocking is fantastic and was the leader of that wisconsin line for 3 years for the top rusher in college football. definitely better than joe looney from the ripWatched some tape on him this morning. Looks solid in the run game, but I have concerns about his pass blocking. Seems like he has heavy feet. Lunges and leans forward a lot. We will have to see.
Would have preferred Kenny Robinson here but get the choice and the value here is decent. I'm hoping his play deteriorating in 2019 was due to playing through injury?
With the players we have now, I believe they can have an OL that’s even more effective overall than the 2019 version. Fredbeard wasn’t ‘100%’ in 2019, was missing altogether in 2018, and from what I’ve been reading, was affected by the illness at least PART of 2017. All we really need is to get them acclimated as a unit and maintain reasonable health.No is going to replace Travis Frederick.
