Lucas or Curhan, who will be our starting RT? Curhan did well in run blocking, in fact he was one of the major contributor in Penny's late season dominance. Lucas was drafted in second round, Curhan was undrafted?
I think he was great pick there. My son and I were doing high fives when we picked him. Hope he does well.As was our previous quarterback
Abraham Lucas was a steal in the third round, and barring injury, I would be stunned if he isn't the starting right tackle week 1.
Completely agree. Curhan is a dirty work guy. He's already demonstrated at the NFL level the want-to, and a proficient understanding of the technique that's necessary for run blocking the outside zone stretch concepts Andy Dickerson is rolling out. I believe that Lucas will hit the ground running and with his natural athleticism and ability will quickly assimilate these skills, but I think Curhan edges him out to start the year and I think it's overall a good thing for the offense and for Lucas as a prospect.Curhan has the edge. He's a gamer who played well when called upon. I expect him to win a very close battle.
Lucas is a nice prospect, but I'm not going to automatically anoint a third rounder over a guy with positive tape in real NFL game action. I'm also not going to write Lucas off should he end up losing the initial competition.
Fully expect that Lucas is the RT of the future.
Its a case of the heart cheering for Curhan, but the brain is for Lucas.It's far to early to know which player will win the competition for the position.
Curhan played well when he had an opportunity late last season and certainly has shown he is a keeper. Lucas is very athletic and will likely need a bit of seasoning but could just win the job. Too me this is a great problem for the team to have and the RT position is certainly well staffed going forward.
Finally there is some quality depth at the OT position and the team isn't trying to scrounge up a passable start from the castoffs.
Guard is where they projected him, and where he got his first snaps last year.Will Curhan get looks at guard or is he simply not built to be a guard? Agree Curhan is good leverage blocker with a little road grater in him, excellent line depth for sure with starting talent.
