    His score is only going to go up. He ranked there even though Scouts Inc. gave Nate an "Above Average" instead of "Exceptional" for "Height/Weight/Speed". Just wait until the Combine.

    Nate is going to be a very wealthy young man. Well deserved based on his hard work and the fact that he is a very high quality individual in addition to his athletic talent.

    Kind of sucks for him though coming out a year to late. Likely to be a work stoppage in the NFL with a rookie salary scale ending up as a part of the settlement. Could cost him a few million dollars but he will still be way ahead of virtually all of his fellow classmates for starting income out of school.

    I also think that barring injury he is going to have a long and successful NFL career. A lot of these guys who are high picks tend to disappoint because they plateau early, Nate is still learning how to be an OT and with good coaching and more physical development should only get better.
