LLT, I have to admitt that I have not seen any tape on Veldheer, but hearing the pre combine hype and seeing him move so fluidly in drills and display a good kick slide and natural hand placement with punch......really interested me in him. He could be a short term project, who could spend year 1 on the bench, year 2 at RT and then LT by his 3rd season to replace Starks.
Excellent point about Hood having the "inside skinny" on what kind of teammate Weatherspoon would be.
I am finding Veldheer to be a more attractive prospect than Davis...Campbell...and Brown. I think your timeline and positioning is pretty much right on the money.
