With a gazillion years as a center he could not beat him out in preseason or TC. Was there improvement in your eyes yes in most of the pros eyes no.
Koppen is/was a stop gap at best. He got run back into the pocket more than Walton would have latter in the year.
BTW John and John like the kid. So unless something happens like it or not he starts.
