Tine could turn out to be a great addition. I watched his film. He's big, athletic and does a good job in pass pro. He's going to need to get more physical and aggressive at the point of attack in the run game however. Welcome to CAL Martin!!

Woo Hoo! Just what Cal needs, and he’s ready to hit the field. Off to a a good start under the new offensive regime. I love hearing the phrase “mobile offensive tackle.”

Should have all his years of eligibility, right? 2 seasons of Juco should mean he has a bit more experience and weight.

So he can't play spring ball because he's not on campus already, is that right? Bummer, if so....

Rugbear:

Question: Looking at a lot of the other player videos, I notice many cases where I could have seen holding called. When I played offensive line, in high school, back in the early 70s, we were taught we were not "supposed" to extend our arms when blocking, yet I see almost every OL player does it. I know in the zone around the line of scrimmage, most anything goes, like a clip or crack-back block, but, again, some of these blocks, that are common amongst lineman, look more like holds than legal blocks.
