atljbo Posted August 4, 2010 Share Posted August 4, 2010 Valdez impressiveBackup offensive lineman Jose Valdez, who spent last season on the practice squad, is having a strong training camp. He's a 6-foot-6, 324-pounder from Arkansas."He's a guy that is very athletic when he gets out there, and he pulls on our sweeps," offensive line coach Paul Boudreau said. "He's very fluid, and he's got nice feet in space."Ive always really liked this guy... I couldn't believe he went undrafted in 09... I thought he was atleast a 5th rounder.. I was excited when we picked him up because he remind me of Harvey Dahl... The guy plays mean and nasty out there.. He finish his blocks and like the O-Line coach said... He has great feet.... He just needed a couple of years to get stronger and work on some minor things.I honestly think this dude can be a either a starting guard in the NFL or a really good backup... He may spend 1 more year on the PS if they think we can stash him on there this year and know one will try to steal him but i do think he will be here for the future.O-Line depth seem to be a strength for us now. (young none starter)Mike Johnson - 23 years oldJoe Hawley - 21 years oldGarrett Reynolds - 23 years oldJose Valdez - 23 years oldThis is how the good teams just easily substitute a starting O-Lineman when they lose a guy in FA..
