Well it demonstrates a level of awareness positionally and faith in the coaching to put him in that situation.

Of course we can develop him better ourselves but if it comes down to him, tedenby, butler, who knows, and who knows then there is no reason to count him out. Matteau is good example, he is playing over several guys who are more experienced and whatnot albeit a bottom role.
