Although he had a lot of success protecting Ryan Tannehill, Luke Joeckel really made a name in 2012 as he was protecting the blindside of Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Manziel. Standing at 6-6 and 306 pounds, he was a rock all year for Manziel on the left side.
When watching tape of Joeckel, you won’t see him as an overly flashy offensive tackle. The Texas A&M offense had required Joeckel to be more of a sit back and wait blocker rather then a mauler. He has the ability to take on bull rushers as well as guy rushing with speed, both at a high-level.

Hollis Thomas is a former Philadelphia Eagle and now radio host on 94.1 WIP here in Philadelphia. According to an unnamed source, Hollis reported on air this morning that Asomugha who is different, and a little distant, would eat lunch in his car...
Come back and have lunch with me
10) Wanted to limit the smell of burnt toast while dining to just his own stench
9) As was proven during the 2012 season, prolonged exposure to Kurt Coleman produces rage
8) Communication among the secondary was already so good, didn't want to jinx it
7) Fewer witnesses for when he fell down and let his lunch get behind him
6) Dominique Rodgers...
I don’t see the big deal about this, I use to eat lunch in my car all the time when I was working in corporate America. Sometimes you do need some “me time” away from your bosses.
It appears from the report by Pro Football Talk, some of Nnamdi teammates didn’t like his quirky and aloof ways and are now leaking them to the media. They are doing it anonymously of course.
It is no secret that since joining the Eagles in 2011 cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha has been a huge disappointment.
