    Mangini used to harp on it all the time yet I just ignored it until recently.

Just think about how many of the great players in this league are complete retards? Not many. They are all pretty sharp on some level. I watch Vlad's reactions sometimes to people speaking to him and I'm really not sure that he gets much.

    The good thing is that Vlad is at least smart enough to work his ass off. That should help him.

    Either way, we'll get a better feeling through training camp and preseason as to where he stands.
    i'm wondering if there's any issues with a language barrier.

    I said if before, that is one reason I think the guy struggled so much last year being converted to guard. You have a lineman on either side of you that you have to communicate with and know what you and they are doing. At tackle you may face a greater physical challenge as far as the type of players you face but I would guess you have to think a little less. This is why I think the guy is better suited to RT than guard.

    How would he compare to a Jacob Bender, Marko Cavka type sleeper?

    A reliable source has told me Bill Callahan was extremely impressed with Will Rackley during his visit.

    Rackley has played some OT at Lehigh but is probably better suited to play OG in the NFL.
