Good article on Spencer Pulley from last year

Kind of a head scratcher on why Chargers let him go.

Some like him; some don't.

Bleacher Report rated Pulley as the 40th best center in the NFL last season. Here's their write-up.
Quote:
Pulley doesn't have what it takes to be a starting NFL offensive lineman from a pure traits perspective. The Chargers center put forth admirable effort on tape. But big two-gappers can overwhelm him, and he doesn't have the foot speed to match quick one-gap penetrators by himself. He plays through the whistle, and his effort makes him admirable for a depth option.

Different evaluators say different things. So we'll see tonight. At least he knows how to play the position and he's considered an intelligent player.

He's not very good but he's young, he's big, he knows the position and he has a cool beard.

He's big? 6'4" 308 isn't big for an NFL OL. Not even for C who run smaller. 325 would be big. 315 would be ok. 308!
Nice find ..

who knows can he just be solid he hasn't played in a while
tough spot to be in hope he makes the most of it Lord knows we need all the help we can get .
I posed a question last week in a

different thread if he could be considered part of the O-line solution (mostly because I know very little about him). The overwhelming response from the BBI brethren was "No", he's just hasn't been very good. Unfortunately, the team will be entering the off-season looking to replace 3/5 of the OL.

Better than 5/5.

Bigger than Jones?
Jones was shorter but heavier

Around 320 I think.
Ok

Make use of those competent but not huge nor Uber quick nor super hard to find types whereas we need unusual humans to run our type of shit?

Seems like one of the traits we look for in our O-lineman...
