CU players in the NFL

Man, you have to wonder what is so bad about his interviews if he has flopped in 13 HC interviews. Amazing how he is getting passed on
We know from the total number of Black head coaches in the NFL what at least a big part of it is.

Another factor to consider is not only to Blacks not get the opportunity to be hired when they are they are much less likely to get a second chance than a white coach with a similar record or success.

Look at the number of white men who get multiple tries as head coaches and fail repeatedly while Black coaches are passed over.

EB may have gotten some good advice that if he takes a head coaching job make sure it is a good situation because he is unlikely to get a second chance.

23. T DAVID BAKHTIARI, GREEN BAY PACKERS

Bakhtiari has been the gold standard when it comes to pass blocking at the left tackle position over the past few years, certainly since Joe Thomas' retirement. This season, the Packers left tackle allowed nine pressures across 12 games, only one of which resulted in Aaron Rodgers hitting the dirt. The loss of Bakhtiari to injury late in the year was a major blow to the Packers' offense and likely a real difference-maker in terms of the team’s chances of making it through to the Super Bowl. Even though he missed time, Bakhtiari was one of the league's best players this season.

Maybe, but I wouldn't expect much. I'll root for him to do well, but I don't see it unless somebody has got in his ear about playing the position.
Montez can just hope to be an 8-10 year backup clipboard holder and he will make a lot of money for his future. He did graduate, right?
Maybe he gets a start or two here and there, but not likely ever going to be a real starter.

I think that's probably best case scenario for him.

Which considering his play so far in the NFL is fair.

These days $4 million isn't a huge contract but that much guaranteed is enough to insure that he will get a fair chance to prove his value.
Availability is key, his Coverage has been on and off, and he is just not a physical guy as of yet.

Like a lot of players he is better suited for some systems than others. Hopefully the system he is going into will let him emphasize his strengths (close area coverage, ballhawking) and not expose his weaknesses (deep man and physicality be it tackling or fighting bigger, stronger receivers)

Expect that Seattle has plans for how he will fit or they wouldn't have gone after him. Since he has been in the same division they have seen him up close twice a year since he has been in the league.

I think we'd all kill for that opportunity. He'll make good money and have that CU degree to fall back on.
