Clark looks very serviceable to me.

Donovan is not quite as athletic as you may want, but the blocking is there, at several Oline positions.

Sorry, I don't have a link-you can "Google Donovan Clark highlights".
It's good to have irons in the fire. If he could amount to a Clary type player we'd be much better off.

Agreed HT. I know you are bullish on Donovan too.

Moe just says it with fewer words than you and me.

Time. He's waiting in the wings. He speaks of senseless things. His script is you and me

*Yep just checked it out, OF played full seasons at RT in Denver, if he's willing looks like it could be a good idea and solid solution....
Denver was unhappy with his performance at RT and that's why they moved him to OG.

Yes but if my memory is correct that season he played RT, the broncos finished first place in the AFC West and made it to the Superbowl, I believe he started every game that season at RT?

PS the HC that made that call to move him to OG also got fired, the same as MM....

The Sea of Cortez spoke to me...
The TIDE rolled in...
The TIDE rolled out...
It was a sign...

I go away for 4 days and Donovan Clark is starting OG and Orlando Franklin is starting RT... what have you been doing with your time...? Not good Woody, not cool Mo. You're both fired as honorary OL gurus.

I need another vacation.

They liked him well enough to let LG Zane Beadles leave in FA. They went to the SB with Franklin at RT and the 6-7, 330lb 2nd rd pick was expected to be solid playing "in a phone booth".
He has the unrealized potential curse thus far. He LOOKS like a beast. Our new coaches may get him on track, maybe not but I wouldn't write him off without seeing if they can turn his lights on. I don't expect them to stick with him very long this year if he doesn't show them some confident execution when the pads go on. He'll probably be scary. Whether it's scary good or scary bad is the big question.
We'll see.

They also DIS-liked him well enough to let him go the next year.

Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane.

I hope you are all right, and the OL can piece it together and get a running game going... I would like nothing better than to be wrong about this one.
