Thanks! I was waiting for the next one!

BTW, for those who missed it, when episode #3 was posted, I went back and watched the first two. In #2, Mbaeteka was really praised as the best prospect.

Mbaeteka has long arms.
No problem

would love to see Roy make it.
Is it confirmed that RM is on the IPP exemption?

Wasn't there some uncertainty initially?

I believe he is signed to a normal contract and is not an IPP exemption.
Something about Nigeria

It's a country that is producing a lot of high achieving, smart individuals and I'm not just talking about sports.

CHEE-boo Roy Mm-BEH-tickuh

It rolls off the tongue rather nicely. So easy to be a big fan and pull hard for this fellow's success.
This kid will be given all the time he needs to develop  
Jay on the Island : 5/12/2022 9:15 pm : link
With the addition of Neal the Giants are set at both tackle spots for at least the next 3 seasons. Even if Mbaeteka develops into a good player he will not be ready to contribute at all this season. IMO the best case scenario would be for him to spend the majority of the season on the PS but finish the season on the active roster to prevent any team from poaching him to sign to a future contract.

If everything goes right MBaeteka could be ready for a backup role in 2023. Ideally a more seasoned player will be the swing tackle so that there isn't pressure on MBaeteka to step in early. I would prefer to see the Giants work him strictly at RT or LT early on.
Imagine our Oline

With actual depth! Quality depth. I can’t get used to that thought..

Another kid I thought would have a bright future with the Giants. Just wasn't happening. Nice to see he's still involved with the league.
