It's amazing how fast a player can lose stock in the NFL.
When offensive guard Ty Sambrailo was a drafted 59th overall in the second-round of the 2015 draft, he was brimming with potential and praise after a successful collegiate career at Colorado State.
There's no denying his talent or his athletic ability. He's quick, he can read a play, and he's been bulking up all offseason.
But let's be frank, injuries have limited Sambrailo's playing time and his 2016 season was something to forget. As quickly as possible.
Vic Beasly owes Sambrailo a lot for his biggest week last season:
Pro Football Focus had Sambrailo on their “10 worst performers of the week” list every week he's started.
He's probably not in danger of losing his roster spot this season, mostly due to his versatility, but if Sambrailo wants to have a future in this league he's going to need to do better, a lot better, to prove himself this season.
On the bright side, it look's like Sambrailo knows it and is preparing accordingly.
According to John Elway:
“A lot of people think we don’t have a left tackle on our team. We have a left tackle on our team.played left tackle for us two years ago and was playing very well, but hasn’t been able to stay healthy."
