Sadly, he'll need to produce on the wing or at center in a top-6 role or end up an ineffective tweener. Can't say I'm all that optimistic but you never know.
While i agree its an uphill battle but his leg strength for his size and smarts gives him an opportunity like wellwood to a pretty useful third liner.. he wont be an impact player though but he`ll be useful and a third liner IMO
Also guys like Todd Marchant, etc
3rd line is nothign to scoff at
Wellwood wasn`t as strong, nor as fast.
