Wyatt Teller?

Recommended Posts

What's the word on Wyatt Teller? I've heard nothing but radio silence on him since the beginning of the season. 

 

There was enough buzz after the draft to give hope that he could get up to speed quickly and contribute. But the fact that he's still exiled to the practice squad worries me. 

 

*Note: I meant to say inactive list, not practice squad. That's what I get for double-checking my posts before hitting enter.

He's on the 53 man roster just got active on gamedays.

 

I mean he probably sucks, but he's not on the practice squad

He's probably not as ready as he needs to be yet

I wouldn’t be concerned that a 5th round pick isn’t starting right away.

I expect to see Teller and Sirles later in the year get some starts.

Not sure about McDermott and Boettger.

He doesn't look ready. Hopefully next year he is.

Well he's got active roster spot but not active on gamedays yet.

 

As with all 5th round picks, it's longer odds to end up as a starter, but it does happen.   I think they had him mostly working at LG in camp, and would likely activate him if Vlad goes down.  Immediate fill in would be Groy, but something happened to that dude and he seems to have huge lapses with balance on the field.

 

I thought that Boettinger stood out in camp.  Fast and massive dude, looked light on his feet.

I was a fan in pre season.......the guy flat out mauls ppl in the running game.

 

After watching him at TC, I was positive that he would get some PT eventually this season.  You are correct, he is an absolute monster in the running game.  Must need some polish, as most late round o-linemen typically need.

He won't be playing anytime soon. Might as well get a job at a bank as a Teller.

 

He'd probably just block your account.

I'm thinking he gets his shot after the bye week.

Juan Castillo and the new zone blocking scheme is what happened to Groy.  He doesn't suit the scheme, so he's gone from being at least a serviceable backup to being a turnstile.  Maybe McDermott and Beane should have given a slightly higher priority to OL in the last draft and spent more than a late fifth round pick on it.

If Teller would of played at the beginning of the season we would of had 4 or 5 more holding calls per game.  If he has improved his technique to not be such a "grabber" in pass pro is anyones guess.  I'm pulling for him cause that would be one less need to worry about next year.  Same for Boettinger as well,  he could be a surprise after a full offseason on training.

OL is one of those positions you can get a pretty good idea of the basic talents.

 

Wyatt's basic talent is that he is powerful and mobile......two very good things in a Deboll offense.

I mean, I definitely like his scouting report.  Also, I think G is more about want to and attitude than overall technique more than other positions.

 

but as garbage as our offense is, I don’t think the oline has been a major problem recently.  But I’m far from an oline expert.  What are you thoughts?  Definitely think he should get time towards the end of the year though.

From what I can tell, he was struggling with pro OL concepts and whatnot. And that's typical for a young OL, even highly touted prospects nowadays are entering the league having put their hand in the dirt like, half a dozen times. The way the college game is played these days has impacted the development of OL and QBs the most. 

 

I think he'll have a chance to crack the starting lineup next year.

We have not been able to run the ball with any consistancy.....I gotta put that on the OL.

 

In pass protection?  They look like they have gelled a bit.

Respect your thoughts on this.  Obviously we had some oline losses and Tyrod helped the run game. I also think we are very predictable which lets defenses tee off.

The handling of Teller is another sign of McCoachs screw ups. 

 

Is it a rebuild and W/L aren't as important as learning and process ? If so why is he not playing and learning like Allen, Milano(last year), White, Johnson, etc.

Would his deficiencies be any worse of a problem than the current oline guys lack of talent? 

 

Or does he not play because McCoach wants to win and is not quite as good as the other oline men? If that's true why did he only have Peterman and Allen as QBs and WTF is going on at the WR position?

 

McBean has contradicted themselves all over the place with how they have handled things and we fans are catching on to their lies and catching a whiff of their steaming pile.  

 

What did McCoach tell Lorax and Meatball at the end of last year? Were going to stink for the next 3 years but hey, we want you to be part of a 3-13 team? If he didn't tell them that then he lied to them and I have zero respect for liars!

If he can't beat out the crap that we have out there right now he is probably not a good played. I also don't see Castillo coaching him up because I have seen almost zero improvement in the O-Line.

I want the Patriots O-Line coach, they are the best at holding and not getting flagged for it. We will get a healthy dose of that on Monday night.

Teller likely needs work in pass protection at this point. But I like his potential and I still think they should give him a chance to play. Guys like Groy, Ducasse and Miller I think have a good chance of not being on this team next year. Go ahead and give Teller a chance to play. 

 

On another note, go trade for Forrest Lamp. He is healthy and ready to go and the Chargers just won't play him. Not sure why they are keeping him on the bench, but I do think there is a possibility of trade there.
