I'm thinking Conrad Dobler and Kyle Turley rolled up into one...

Everyone and their momma mocked him to us at least once during the pre-draft process. This pick was a no brainer. Glad to have him.

Maybe he's fast enough to run pulling plays? Does it really matter what side of the line he mauls the opposition?

The plan for Penning is at LT but of course he’ll have to compete for the starting role.
Sweet! That'll save the Saints cap not having to pay Ramczyk for any left tackle incentives. That alone is incentive to keep him at RT.

So you are doing away with Left Tackle or just not going to incentivize the position?

Positions are incentivized, it is the only way to maintain consistent effort on the 0-line.

Trent Brown or similar players might be the only exception as they are incentivized to lose weight lol.

I was kind of surprised that Penning was still on the board.

Nothing wrong with having a Big Nasty on the offensive line. It'll be interesting to see if he gets in the heads of defensive players like Ceedy does with offensive players. Lol.

Agreed. I guess they just want to keep some level of continuity on the line. Penning has that Richie Incognito in him and I like that. You hit Winston late? You might get your ass suplexed. We just gotta make sure he doesn't commit too many holding or unnecessary roughness penalties. I'm super excited about both of these picks though.
