I'm not sure what you are basing your evaluation on, but Penning only played SIX offensive snaps and one special team snap versus the 49er's. On offense he was brought in as an eligible receiver. He hasn't even played a single snap at left tackle yet.

Possible 1st round LT bust, not a complete bust, I think he may need to be moved to guard. His preseason performance, he was exceptional against the run, and he was horrible with pass blocking. As a rookie, it is one thing to get burned by starting edge rushers and a completely different thing to be burned by guys who will likely not make an NFL roster. Like I said, I hope I am wrong about him, but generally guys who play guard do not need to be taken in the 1st round and can be had with day 3 draft picks.

Once again, he hasn't taken a single snap in a meaningful game at LT. I honestly can't see any way he could have been evaluated at the position yet by anyone. Some of the best tackles in the game really didn't become efficient immediately out of the gate. Penning hasn't even been released from the gate, yet.

Saw him briefly in the San Fran game.

A simple analysis is that Trevor performed like a rusty rookie in his first game.

It happens (Armstead initially struggled). TP will improve with reps and live game action.

Too soon. Way to soon.

Re: Saints Rookie Trevor Penning Could Return Sooner Than Expected

Penning will likely have a slow start to becoming a seasoned veteran with the more playing time he gets each week. As aggressive as he is I fully expect quite a few penalties in the beginning before he gets a grip on things. That's why I want to see him get playing time this year when it doesn't matter anymore compared to next year when we're starting fresh and have the chance of winning the Lombardi.

FYI ..

Trevor Penning has lisfranc injury.

Upcoming surgery. This is why I'm never in a "rush" to get players back after a toe/foot injury.

Per Nick Underhill.

Either that or it's the Terrible training staff and medical doctors. I'm leaning toward the training staff and lack of medical doctors with common sense. We keep rushing these players back out there and stunting their development.

Training staffs and team doctors have no impact on foot and toe injuries. That has more to do with playing surface and footwear. We notice those injuries to our players, but they are becoming more and more common all across the league.

So turf issues and/or shoe issues. Can the Saints get their money back from either of those manufacturers ?
