So the question is could they start a rookie - Sure! if the guy is good and learns the system ... which I hope ... for some reason these new guys remind me of the year (few years back) when we had giocomini (spelling) and some other dude in our lineup... hope they are better ... they just look similar :)

That's what I'm talking about Jack!

EDS and Newhouse need to be replaced as soon as somebody wants to step up. EDS and Newhouse are very good back up role players forced to be starters. Oh yeah, and a replacement at offensive line coach wouldn't hurt either.

OlHoss1884, I don't know how to weigh some of the scouting reports. Going 11-2 in the SEC with the success they had running the ball, I find it a bit difficult to imagine the guy cannot run block. In 2011, his first year starting at C, the Aggies rushed or 199 yds per game, #24 in the nation. The numbers from last year I've already posted.

Here's some video of him to see for yourself. Only one highlight video of him specifically at C, this game against Auburn:
http://draftbreakdown.co...ick-lewis-vs-auburn-2012

This one is a bit of a time commitment: A great game by him vs. Florida, with a pretty impressive 2nd series and half in no huddle. This is the whole game, against a very good Florida defense (commercials are already FFW which is good) He made a couple of mental mistakes early and late in the game, but overall played well:


I'd say his run blocking was quite solid here, and look at his ability to quickly get to the 2nd level on screens - very quick. Impressive. He seems to have a really great ability to absorb an opponent's momentum and redirect him out away from the direction of the play. Had a great 1st half, with some nice inside run blocking 2nd quarter. Can't help but notice he is one hell of a pass protector too. He seems to play really smart, and runs a very fast tempo no huddle, making all the line calls. I thought looking at a close Aggies loss against a tough Florida team would give us a better picture of him and how he plays.

Then there is their win v. Bama:


Kind of funny, a Jesse Williams highlight video that makes Lewis look pretty good, from the same game:


Win vs. Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl:



Another note on Lewis that I find interesting is that his backup at Texas A&M was Mike Matthews, Clay's cousin. I'd say some word got around on this player in the Packers offices. Patrick Lewis seems pretty tough and smart on the line, and I think he looks like he could make a great C for us. Maybe beats out EDS and starts this year.

I'm a supporter of EDS, and I also believe centers can be made from other O Linemen - that college experience at the position isn't a prerequisite. Just the same, I agree that this Patrick Lewis seems like a real find.

There are at least half a dozen of those among this year's UDFAs. Is Ted Thompson just that good? Or is there some extenuating circumstance that kept these guys from getting drafted?
