    Army's Alejandro Villanueva (6'9") signs with Eagles

    I remember there was some discussion here when we played Army (2009?) whether or not the guy would have a shot in the NFL.
    Looks like after a great military career he does:

    Has to be him. I remember he was the first thing my wife noticed when we saw that game. He was a monster compared to all of his teammates.

    I remember that they run the same f***ing fade play 3 or 4 times in a row to him in the endzone.

    Guy may have a place as a possession type TE. Great size but he did not use it very well when they played the Clones. Of course the Army QB was not very good at throwing either, so that may be a factor. I could see him catching a bunch of 4-5 yard passes for first downs if they can get him isolated on a shot defender.

    I doubt he will catch that many passes - especially because the article says they signed him as a D lineman.

    I knew d-linemen were short, but gimme a break. Oh well, he is a real Ranger, knows close combat fighting, use to all field conditions, and has superior tactical planning capability from a stance.

    Pretty sure they finally got it to him on the third try over our shortest DB, Kennard Banks.

    Almost certain that is what they will do. He was never fast enough to be a NFL WR.

    Feeling like the ranger tackle eligible play....
