I know a lot of you are going to say this one is easy, same college. That would be the wrong answer. The correct answer is, upper body issues. I will make this post quick. The strength and conditioning coach at Oklahoma needs his azz whooped. Lets start with Trent Williams super stud college tackle that only does 23 reps of 225lbs. How many reps do you think stud D-tackle Gerald Mccoy does of 225 lbs? The answer would also be 23 reps of 225lbs. I know some of you might not get this, but that is pizz poor for playing those positions in the NFL. Unless Gerald Mccoy improves his upper body strength dramatically, he can not play in the trenches. Now lets take a look at Sam Bradford. This guy had a serious shoulder injury on a not so serious hit. What does LJP take from all of this? I would look at this as the strength and conditioning coach not doing his job. He needs to make sure his players do more upper body strengthening exercises.
How does this effect the Redskins you might say? This is pretty simple, Trent William with sufficient upper body strength will play left tackle, without he is a right tackle or guard. So unless he is working out with the Texas guy Orakpo, he will not have a shot at LT for us this year. For example look at Texas, their players look like they all or on steroids from their conditioning program/ coach.
