Interesting little NFP writeup with two Belichick connections

1

"However, what do you do with the massive blocking tight end who possesses the size/physique and athleticism to possibly make the move to left tackle in the NFL? One such prospect last year who I really took a liking to was Temple’s Steve Maneri. The 6-6, 270 pound kid was the best in-line blocking tight end I saw on tape and possessed a frame that could continue to get bigger. He went un-drafted in 2010, but spent the year on the New England practice squad as a developmental tackle prospect. He’s now nearly 300 pounds, is still a gifted athlete and might be the next gem the Patriots uncovered along their offensive line." That's one. The other is that it compares Maneri to 2011 draft candidate Will Yeatman, of Maryland. Yeatman is an ex-lacrosse player (cough, Belichick, cough) who only recently switched to football. However: "When talking with an NFL scout this past week, he told me that if someone made him (Yeatman) a offensive tackle three years ago, the guy would be 310-pounds right now and could be a first round pick." Keep the kid on the radar - for obvious reasons, this kid just screams Belichick.
