How They will Fit...the "We drafted WHO? Edition


David Arkin that is who... Lets see what He is about after the jump.

Quick jump I know... But lets look at Arkin via Pro Scout(thanks Dave for the Link):

NOw Stats in a vacuum are meaningless So here is Kyle Koiser:

Name: Kyle Kosier 
College: Arizona State     Number: 69
Height: 6-5   Weight: 293 
Position: OT  Pos2: 
Class/Draft Year: Sr/2002
40 Time: 5.09      40 Low:    40 High:  
Projected Round: 7-FA  Stock:     
Rated number 19 out of 28 OT's      / 539 TOTAL
Combine Invite: Yes
Height: 6046
Weight: 293
40 Yrd Dash: 5.09
20 Yrd Dash: 2.89
10 Yrd Dash: 1.79
225 Lb. Bench Reps: 24
Vertical Jump: 29 1/2
Broad Jump: 09'00"
20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.49
3-Cone Drill: 7.34

As you can see Arkin is a decent prospect in the 4th round, though may have been a slight reach. Now he is not quite as fluid as Koisier is, but seems to be more than adequate there. He does need to work on his strength though, however did post a respectable 25 reps on the 225 bench press.

How will he fit? Obviously he will be playing special teams, and will more than likely be competing with Holland for the "Swing Guard" spot, assuming that Holland doesn't get a starting position due to either Kosier(FA) or Bigg(released) leaving....Personally I see him replacing Kosier. Not bad for a 4th round pick IMO.....
