Still, this muddles how a Stanley or McGlinchey level OT would obviously be tabbed a starter on this team without a second thought. There is no question that an OT with Top 10 pick talent would beat out any of the currently rostered players... that is flat out axiomatic. So the competition angle makes no sense whatsoever.

But all of this is sort of besides the point, which is that being a "tout" about how a kid who has proven nothing is a certain top 10 pick is pretty crazy. How about this? I'll bet you any amount of money you want that he is not a top 10 pick in the 2022 NFL draft and I'll give you 5-to-1 odds. Let me know what level you're comfortable betting at. I'll take any action from $1 to 5 beers at the next ND game to whatever you are willing to put in escrow for two years.
I don't know why you are introducing Stanley or McG to this or that they would start on this team??? Would either start as a true freshman? What I said about ND and Walter Rouse is that he wouldn't start for this team this year, nor would any other OT from the 2019 class for that matter. Are you saying that any kid who ends up a Top 10 pick at OT would've come into ND as a summer enrollee and beat out Eich & Hainsey this year? I don't think we are on the same wavelength here.

And if I'm a "tout", you're a chince. 5:1 odds on a Top 10 scenario call in 3 years??? Gee thanks Beav!

How about 25:1 he goes first 3 rounds when he comes out barring injury of course. That's still not good enough odds for a lowly 3*/#37 OT but maybe I'm seeing something that isn't there.

But either way, I'm not opening an escrow account.

Because they are, obviously, recent examples of what Top 10 draft pick tackle play looks like.

So let's get this straight... you stated as fact that he would be a Top 10 pick in the '22 draft. Not that he might be, or had a chance to be. That *barring injury* he would be a Top 10.

Then given 5-to-1 odds on that, you pivot to him being picked in the first three rounds and needing 25-to-1 on that. So which is it? Is he going to be a Top 10 pick, or does he have a less than 5% chance of being a Day 2 pick?

Either way, that's enough on this topic. It's not really important. I just didn't understand where you were coming from initially, and wanted to clarify. I think we're getting further away not closer.
