Just living the dream of a college kid wanting to be something

Seems like at times he short arms the pass-pro. I wonder about him dealing with a true speed edge rusher. I know he's got some bulk and looks robust. I think he can move fairly well for his size, probably works with the scheme, but not my ideal choice.
True Junior, is there a compelling reason why he'd enter the draft and leave A&M early? - I'm thinking right now he might stay for his Senior year, I assume graduate.What's the consensus on the other Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews?
If he came out I'd expect someone to take him in the 1st.
I mean I like him, sinks into his hips in pass-pro but still remains upright, arched back, can slide pretty well, looks like a good athlete. I don't know if I'm blown away by him, Joeckel seems more sudden moving to me. I think JM uses his hands well, jolts guys well at first contact.
Just some things that I seem to perceive about both guys.

After watching some USC, I gotta say I love their rb's as a fit for our offense. Curtis McNeal would be my target, as he is currently listed as a late round rb, but he has just so much wiggle in his running, seems tough to bring down despite his size and that reminds me of Portis, but McNeal is a long-strider and upright runner compared to how Portis ran.
Honestly wish coach would return Helu back to starter, as I think he's the most talented and versatile, and it's not like he was unproductive last season. I'm a little baffled by why Morris is starting. Not saying he's bad by any means, but I wonder if he is a spaceholder for when the other rb's get healthy, or if Shanahan really sees him as a better fit; because to me he seems to really lack burst and creativity in his running, but willingly lowers his shoulder to hammer out an extra yard.

I don't like the idea of dipping into FA all the time.
Only in the rare case that a need matches an immediate scheme fit.
I think out type of team, a young building team, should try to make our moves through the draft almost exclusively.
And if they do dabble in FA only target young up and coming FA and avoid paying top dollar for FA like Long/Clady.
And frankly, I'd probably bite the bullet and pay the big money to bring in Ryan Clady if the negotiations with the Broncos fall through. We'd have the best 2 starting tackles in the NFL hands down. The cap penalty expires after next year, and we'll either knock Moss's 6m off our cap, or he'll come back at a reduced price. I agree with SmQ that we need more speed on offense, especially if Helu's injuries keep him from being a long-term contributor.
Hunt sounds like a good prospect, but I have never heard of him until people up here mentioned him. I need to see him play before I get on his bandwagon.
Ryan Clady ain't all that. And that would be a stupid amount of money to invest in two tackles.
