  1. I'll second this though I'm sure others will still comment on the 19 reps without reading these first. I'm 6 ft tall but my legs are very long and my center of gravity is a few inches or more higher than most guys. I seem much stronger on upper-body stuff like benching and back work but squats for me are very difficult. The higher center of gravity throws off the normal motion of the squat and I can barely get to parallel or deeper. But then my upper body and arms are a tad shorter (though not noticeable until you look closely). I've always had a strong bench because, exactly as BUFFALOKIE said, physics. The weight doesn't have to travel as far so the work being required is lower. The shorter muscle lengths add to that I'm sure. Doesn't mean I'm much stronger than someone else per say. Likewise, shorter guys or even my height with shorter legs can push a lot more than me squatting and leg pressing. Then we switch to back work and I wear them out. I think that's probably the case with Ford. And anyway, 19 reps isn't that bad really. Not the best but certainly not the worst. And I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of his punches and blocks. He clearly has good power in that 340 pound frame. It's only going to get better with NFL training and an NFL paycheck to pay for his grocery bill as he continues to grow. Really great pick! What a good guy too. Totally not an asshat regardless of all the hype around him during the draft. That's a Buffalo kind of guy.
  2. I get the same thing and you might be the first I've seen mention it, starrymessenger. Been hearing he's mean, physical, mauler, etc. and sometimes more a finesse and technique guy. The tape doesn't show me road-grader per say. What I see though is a big fella who really uses what he naturally has very well. Maybe not the most gifted RT draftee ever but very smart, very sound on technique (which means very coach-able), great awareness and absolutely awesome hustle and effort to the whistle. He does look a tad slow in the foot-shuffle and yeah might be vulnerable to the really fast edge guys. But he seems to know how to compensate for his shortcomings well and I think he'll get really good after a year or two as a pro. Should be able to improve a lot with good coaching. And just a good young guy too. A guy who's good, is known to be good, but won't let it get to his head. Very respectable and obviously raised well. I think Bills fans are going to really like him for many years. Great pick!
  3. A Peterman comparison? Really. Nothing on this team is that bad right now. Geez.
