Now Flanagan while he has (I think) better offensive potential then Read, doesnt have Read's defensive play. Flanagan doesnt shy away from defense (like Briere) but his size hasnt helped him.

Do I think he will make the team out of camp? No, but I think he will get a long look despite his size.
I'm not saying there were a lot of us who thought Read would make it. I'm saying that now that we have seen a College guy make it some will expect it out of the next guy that follows the same pattern.
