Left Tackle Situation.....



We started this year with Levi "Ole" Brown at our starting left tackle this year. He was anything but elite, and was in my opinion quite bad at pass protection. BA and Steve Keim had the ability to dump him off and got back to what amounted to one of my sons drawings. Most of us just looked at it as addition by subtraction.

That brings me to Bradley Sowell, I am not sure where i stand on this guy. Is he great, nope, but something i read recently stands out to me:

2013: 480,000

2014: 570,000

No those are not the projected television view numbers of the Jacksonville Jaguars (had to make some kind of shot, come on that was bad, worse then Sun Devil Stadium bad) that would be what he is making for the next two years. Has the kid been great, Not even close, but I do think he is being under paid for his position, Here he is making the minimum you can make in the national football league and playing arguably the hardest position in the national football league and is able to hold up. He doesn't jump offside (heres looking at you Levi), he doesn't hold all that much, will he give up a sack or two a game yes but we were getting that with 6 million dollars at the position so giving two up at 90% of that number seems like a bargain to me. Still need to draft one but if a QB falls to us its not as important this year to use a first round draft pick on him.
