I think part of it is his line mates are more than willing to do the dirty work so he doesn't have to. But being 160 as a smaller guy is different. For example, Domi has 25lbs on this kid and is a solid 5 inches shorter (don't believe Domi is 5'10, he isn't). Lodge is wayyyy too lanky so his balance is atrocious. This can obviously be fixed, since he does have the height his frame is very projectable. He can definitely generate his own offense, which we really lack in our prospect pool up front. We have a lot of guys like Leivo, Ashton, Biggs who can finish off plays, but we lack someone with the creative playmaking ability of Lodge.
