The Chippewas, from the Mid-American Conference, outgained Washington State, 355-241, despite playing without either of its star offensive tackles. Bernhard Raimann, a senior from Delton-Kellogg, and Luke Goedeke opted out after receiving invitations to play in the Senior Bowl.
So, I really like OT Trevor Penning from Northern Iowa who is likely to go in the first. Same height but weighs about 20 pounds more but still looks almost too light to me. I think Raimann goes undrafted.
OK, oops . Running around after the kids. Too much sugar them, not enough sleep, me.
Still, I did see some games for Central, and I NEVER would have guessed he was so green to the position. He looked smooth and very athletic.
What I’m thinking/envisioning, is a guy who can be an offensive line swiss army knife with some Hank Fraley coaching. Someone who could contribute as an immediate backup from Guard out to Tight End on either side of the line. A legitimate receiving threat in goal line jumbo packages declaring as an eligible receiver. Possibly a guy who can develop into a starter at some point, but holds immediate mid-round value off the bench.
I just think this is the kind of prospect who can continue to build towards strength. Interested in your thoughts.
