His poor play in his first two seasons was more to do with not being in NFL shape rather than deficiencies in his agility, and footwork.

Kuper has had two serious surgeries on his ankle now with the same leg showing a break near the original plate at the end of last season. So it's worrying that the injury didn't heal fully initially and actually recently was reinjured. NOT good for his long term prospects of making the roster, let alone starting.

That's why there's not a chance that Kuper will play at Center where you need excellent feet, and real drive from your legs and base to move 320+ DL out of the way. A guy who shattered his ankle/lower fib the last two years is not going to do that either at C or Guard.
I agree completely about Kuper...but what about Walton? He had the same injury.

Here I always thought training camps sorted roster spots out. Why is there even a rush about this

I do think it's interesting Vasquez is working out at Center. People say "well they're low on players." Yeah they're low on guards too and he's actually going freaking play guard so it would make more sense for him to play guard during the OTA's. I think him at Center would be cool, unless Kuper is still banged up, obviously.

Having Vasquez, Kuper, or Beadles at C is an upgrade over Walton.

an OL of Clady, Beadles, Vasquez, Kuper, Franklin (even legally blind) would be AWESOME!

Vasquez is probably working out at Center, so he can fill in if Walton goes down...Ramirez would come in at RG.

I'm going by what Fox has said in the press that Walton is the starter and they are not overly concerned about his injury. So maybe the injury wasn't as severe or he looks good to be ready when it matters.

We still have Blake to see if he's ready to step in as the decent backup and worst case scenario they can always resign Koppen.
