Unacceptable. Eichenberg is constantly grouped in as just another ‘part of the problem’ on the offensive line. A replacement level player that Grier has failed to replace. Wait a minute. This guy was forced to play and learn 3 positions in his rookie year. The coaching staff were asking too much. Why, Because the actual replacement level players were unable to hold their own water at their designated positions. Let’s take a step back and remember that he was impenetrable in college. He didn’t give up a single sack in his last 2 and a half years (33 straight games) in College! Those are Laremy Tunsil type numbers! While it wasn’t the SEC, I think we can agree, Norte Dame has a legit schedule.(and are known to produce stud NFL lineman if nothing else.) His chances to succeed were further hindered by poor play around him. It’s hard to thrive as an individual when the unit and coaching staff around you are a dumpster fire. I know his 1st few games of the year at his natural right tackle spot were not standout performances (before getting bounced around to LG and LT). But let’s not forget Phillips was almost invisible the 1st half of the year, before figuring it out in a big way down the stretch and proving to be a standout rookie. I would argue Eichenberg did improve down the stretch and begin to perform more consistently. I admit He didn’t thrive like Phillips, but he was not a hole like Davis/Jackson/Mancz. But again he was never given the time and patience to develop and grow at one position as a rookie. There is still a lot of promise with Eichenberg. I know it’s frustrating to fans that the Offensive Line has not been addressed as a priority yet and players like Davis and Jackson would still be in the picture if the season started today. I agree we definitely do need one OT and or C. But let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water. Eichenberg is a much better player and has more pedigree as a prospect than those guys. Eichenberg should actually have a future as a long term starter on this team. LE Should be penciled in with Conner Williams and Robert Hunt as day 1 starters on the Offensive Line.
