Yes you know his name, Yes you know he is a rookie.
But do you realize he has solidified one of the most crucial positions in football?
I just don't think this ROOKIE! gets enough recognition.
Mel Kiper recently did a Re-Do 2010 Mock Draft, and guess what? This Hillsdale(Where?) product was determined to be a first round pick.
What a steal!
Some writers have pointed out Veldheer's flaws (sorry Carl) poor technique, short arms, no big time experience etc.
But the bottom line is the Oakland Raiders have their left tackle of the future, and we can now forget not so super Mario. (im worried with him on the Right side this week).
Sure Veldheer has given up some sacks, but once again remember he is a ROOKIE! and can only get better.
He has a bright future.
