Bryant McKinnie = vastly improved
On another board I used to be more a part of, they are constantly ripping on McKinnie. He has taken longer to meet expectations than many have hoped for but after re-watching video of him in the preseason, I think he is ready. He still is not at the level of the top tackles in terms of run blocking but he is flat out dominating his guy against the pass. I suspect he will always give up a sack against the very best speed rushers but there aren't too many tackles that can completely stop guys like that. What I suspect you won't see are games like in the past where they have to continue to give him help on his side to protect him from the speed guy. He looks significantly better this year in preseason than he has in the past and that excites me greatly.
