Seems like a solid guy, not much bigger than Dockery, should be fine

guard one of the easiest positions to fill, not to worry?

The idea that offensive guard is an easy or/unimportant position is a strange one. Anybody recall how Dockery cost us at least two games his first year by a combination of mistakes and poor technique? If Wade can't hold his own, our ground game is gone and Jason's in for a few dumps. No doubt about it.

I think we have 4 other lineman with starting experience at guard. Somebody will step up, no doubt in my mind!

i mentioned this before but I dont see that Dan Mozez has signed with any team yet. I check often since I am a big WVU fan. He was voted the best center in college last year. was all american 3 years, even as a redshirt sophomore while playing guard. Plus WVU's rushing attack has been top 3 all most every year. He isn't injured, I would love to see the Redskins bring him in for a look.

If Wade is the guy when the season starts, i feel he will do just fine. He's a vet, can learn the system and blocking schemes, he just has to work on his technique. he is only 2 inches taller than Dock, i dont see his height being a major concern.

Dock was 6'6, Wade is 6'8, I don't think the extra two inches will make a big deal.

It sounds like Wade is committed to making the switch and he seems to have a good attitude about it.

I honestly don't think we'll see much of a dropoff from Dockery. In fact Wade could actually be an improvement.

Care to elaborate?

Why won't Wade work at LG?

If your a backup and your offered a starting role? You better believe your going to BUST YOUR ASS to stay there. If you can make it, in a couple of years it's contract time, and guess what? It won't be a matter of lack of effort on his part

What's the report on Wade's footwork/speed?

DD was a bulldozer, but couldn't pull very well due to poor footwork and being pretty slow. If Wade has the ability and speed to get around behind Randy Thomas, we could be in for a fun year with our tandem backfield. Either way, as long as he can seal off the backside with Samuels, Randy and John seem to have no problem moving the pile off the right side.

Should be interested to follow his development. I do share some of concerns regarding his height. Being 6'8" is great for a tackle, but for a guard, who really needs to rely on leverage, it could be an issue. It is hard to stay low when you are 4-5" taller than the D-tackle you are trying to block.
