Re: Skins add OL Wade

Scouts Inc. Profile:

Full Name: Todd McLaurin Wade
Born: October 30, 1976
Greenwood, MS
Height: 6-8
Weight: 317 lbs. Age: 29
Pos: OT
Experience: 7 years
College: Mississippi
Drafted: Year:2000 Round:2 Pick:22, Dolphins

Shows some ability to move lateral and position block. Has some ability to cut-off on the second level. Will battle in-line. Plays with solid balance. Can wall off in-line. Shows some ability to pull to the short side and make some contact. Will lunge and go down off the snap. Gets his legs locked on base blocks and will have his body too far forward - he is a waist-bender. Needs more consistency with hand placement. Will fire off the ball and miss in short yardage situations. He looks stiff on his pass set slide. Gets his shoulders turned, will give up angles to the quarterback. Has a hard time vs. bull rushers, gives too much ground - has late hands and gets out-leveraged. Falls off chip blocks. He has a big wind-up on his punch.

Re: Skins add OL Wade

I don't know how I feel about having a former Texans O-lineman on the team, even if he is just a back-up.

Matty, this guy is a huge speciman, but this report does not sound very good? What do you think?

Re: Skins add OL Wade

Injury is the issue, IMO. If he's healthy, he's a good backup. As for the Texans, it's hard to say how good or bad these guys are. The TEAM sucked, so everyone looked weak.

Re: Skins add OL Wade

He sounds like a solid backup to me. He's got starting experience and what it comes down to is he's better than anything we already had, I know, that's not saying much.

I've got a buddy who's a Dolphins fan and he said phins fans hate the guy. He was a promising young OL who signed took the money and ran with Houston, but has never lived up to the hype.

Maybe after being cut he'll be hungry to revive his career.

Re: Skins add OL Wade

one of the reasons the texans cut him was because he was costing them too much money, not because he was the worst lineman on the team

Re: Skins add OL Wade

I would also guess that he doesn't fit the zone blocking type of scheme they're running there now with Kubiak.

Re: Skins add OL Wade

From SI 2000 draft:

A tall, muscular right tackle with very long arms and big hands. Hard worker with a fiery demeanor. Plays a little high and isn't explosive in his initial thrust, but he's a solid run blocker who keeps his legs driving. Has a good feeling for angles and hustles downfield. Sets up well in pass protection. Does a good job of controlling defenders once he gets his hands on them. Has fairly good feet, but bends at the waist a lot trying to adjust. Has some problems reacting to a good inside move. Somewhat stiff. Needs technique improvement, but has solid tools.

Re: Skins add OL Wade

this will be a good signing when he gets into football shape. I think he got released a month or so ago. Correct me if i'm wrong. Lets hope we don't have to call on him Monday night.
