While he has been too slow to develop and looking back, a reach even on the bottom of the second round, still might be hope for him.
This will be the year he must step up or he will loose his roster spot next season and be gone.
Language obstacle? He was in this country for 8 years before he took the test. Face it, guy's as dumb as a pile of mud.Quote:

Thats basically what Vlad is.
His biggest Jet accomplishment is winning the "King Ugly" award his rookie year
i know i am going to get killed for this, but i think he still has some upside...small school guy, didn't really play football too long...i'd give him another year at guard.
But, there was a large contingent on this board who, in year 3, were making ludicrous statements like "Give him time - he's developing". I call bull**** there.
Even if a guy is really raw, a 2nd round lineman needs to be in contention to start in year 1. If, on account of being really raw, he is a backup for year 1, he needs to be in the lineup, come hell or highwater, in year 2. I'll give him a learning curve of one year, but that's it.
Ducasse was brought in to start right away - we drafted him and cut Faneca on the same weekend. The fact that he was beaten out by Slauson was not what the team wanted or expected.
I don't hold it against Tanny too much - some picks are busts...it happens. But, Ducasse has been a disappointment, there's no questioning that. Hopefully he steps up and contributes this year and then we'll at least have got something out of him. We'd better considering we may be losing two Guards and the team rotated him in last year solely to be ready for 13'.
i.e. Kyle Brady, Vlad, Kenny O (not Marino) when commo sense points in the opposite direction.
Experts? again...LOOK AT HIM. he is slow and sloppy.
Jason Pierre Paul? He was a BEAST in college and the minute you saw him you suspected he would excel in the NFL.
At USF, he was fast and powerful.
Vlad sucks. He will start next year b.c we have no cap room and not enough draft picks to fill a depleted roster.
Maybe Idzik will find someone during his tryouts.
